THE LAST DITCH An Englishman returned after twenty years abroad blogs about liberty in Britain

Oh wad some power the giftie gie us To see oursel's as others see us! It wad frae monie a blunder free us, And foolish notion

The quote (and the smear) of the campaign

Secret Christian donors bankroll Tories | World news | The Observer.

The Labour Party was once a movement of muscular Christians. Now it's a smear to report that Christians have donated to their opponents. Since all the major donations are public (no real journalism was therefore required to research the linked article) the word "secret" is certainly nothing but a smearing innuendo.

Since religions prosper under persecution and poverty - Labour and its fellow travellers seem intent on creating the conditions for a great Christian revival in Britain. Though I am an atheist myself, it would not particularly bother me. I share most of the Christian values in which our civilisation was marinated for centuries. At least, unlike the Liberals, Christians would return with the same values as when they were last influential.

I had to smile, rather sadly, at the observational comedy of one Conservative donor, Christian businessman Michael Farmer:

Labour's idea of a family is three people who share a fridge.

Amen, brother.

Love the fridge quote. So true all around the developed world. In other parts, it will be 10 or more people who share a fridge. I have come around to your view that UK politics needs to be blown up and start again.

You said it; to be persecuted for one's faith is the highest badge of honour. The militant atheists of the 'progressive' movement, however, do not study history or literature, so this little fact will have escaped them.
