Our Prime Minister has a road to Damascus experience, and now welcomes Christians into the godless, god forsaken Labour fold. How nice to share fellowship with atheists, sex perverts & baby-killers. Wonder if the Brethren are welcome? Apparently not. Our deputy PM describes them:
"a small, unrepresentative, intolerant, self confessed exclusive group bought themselves a political party and nearly captured a nation by stealth"
For a minute I thought he meant Labour's motley mob of feminists, queers, unionists, & academics, ushering in the second coming of communism. Helen's epiphany has reaffirmed a deep faith in the sanctity of marriage:
"Clark paid special tribute to her husband Peter Davis, saying he was the most special person in her life"
Does Judith Tizard know this? Have to laugh at the cheap, transparent, cynical appeal to Christian votes with this phoney new makeover: Helen as hausfrau, uber-kiwi wife, standing by her man. Next we'll see her baking fudge brownies, adopting African orphans, then a Woman's Day cover beaming how motherhood's transformed her life. Forget the pledge cards, Labour needs Tui billboards for their '08 campaign.
