Britain a Christian country?
The English education secretary wants teachers to emphasise Christianity in their curricula and not acknowledge that vast swathes of the world's population do not believe in a divine creator. The prime minister regularly declares that Britain is a Christian country. Clearly the Conservatives seek to reassure citizens of my generation, who vote more assiduously than younger people and who are more likely to be believers, for I doubt that ministers sincerely hold those views themselves.
