Today the Prime Minister and Communities Secretary Eric Pickles have both backed the right of Christians to wear crosses at work and in fact the Prime Minister's official spokesman also said today: "The Prime Minister’s personal view is that people should be able to wear crosses."
The Mail reports on Lynne Featherstone's instruction to Government lawyers to call on European human rights judges to dismiss the claims of Christian workers who have been banned from displaying the symbol of their faith at work.
My first reaction on reading those two news items was: Jesus! Accepting that there are, no doubt, among the readership of this blog those who may take offence at blasphemy, I will content myself to observing: Don't you just love to see joined-up government in action?
Afterthought: Or is the Communities Secretary and the Equalities Minister entering the spice business with a new line: Piccalillynne?
