    Jesus Christ, I hope Cameron prayed for this man and had faith he would be acquitted in the eyes of the law and also in gods eyes as well.

    Or maybe Cameron has no faith and was actually persecuting and prosecuting poor Christian nurses who dared to wear a cross to work.

    Either way Cameron is a liar and a hypocrite.

        Divine Brown – No he was no where near. He was right though – It did start in America.

Douglas Carswell’s side-kick Dan Hannan MEP pours water on the obvious question:

“I won’t be joining UKIP, though I wish Douglas Carswell all the best. He has been a superb MP, and it’s honourable to stand for re-election.”
