A preliminary report
Earlier today the Second Reading of Baroness Cox's Bill was debated and I sat in on part of it. Here is the temporary link to Hansard. As soon as the corrected version of Hansard is up I shall change the link and analyze the debate in greater detail. For the moment, let me just say that Baroness Cox's speech was excellent in the way it defined what the Bill is and is not about; that Lord Singh's contribution was the best among the ones I managed to hear and that the Bishop of Manchester made me feel that it is high time the Church of England was disestablished so we no longer had to put up with politician prelates. More later.
