The latest episode from CofE revs with a difference Jamie Franklin and Daniel French. It's the Summer and what can that mean but that celebrities and politicians are virtue-signalling about what films they are watching at the cinema? This time it's non other than...Matt Hancock lip-syncing to a song from the new feminist smash-hit Barbie.
In other news, Gary Lineker receives "standing ovation" in Marks & Spencer for his brave political activism and we review an interesting article from the Church Times on the question of "The Church's Core" business.
We also get to a couple of emails: one helping us to understand the true meaning of the "trans" prefix and the other on a case for responsible Christian stewardship of the environment in distinction to the catastrophist climate change hyperbole.
