We all like to be part of the in crowd, to be one of the cool kids. The same happens in government. It’s how the PM got to where he is today. But the Invisible Magic Friend isn’t like that. It doesn’t matter how much you flatter and praise him. You can spend all your life on your knees saying how wonderful he is. He’ll still ignore you.

And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, Happy Vaisakhi everybody!

But celebrations are muted because of the Invisible Magic Friend’s Holy Virus. During a time of persecution by an anonymous faith whose name was never discovered, one of the Gurus said or did something incredibly relevant that you all just need to hear about.

Has anyone mentioned that Prince Philip is dead? Oh the terrible, terrible grief, the despair that we all feel. Every single person in the country is plunged into mourning. How will the nation cope without Prince Philip?

This is exactly the same as Ramadan, which coincidentally is just about to start. What were the chances of that, eh?

His Grace The Most Reverend and Right Honourable Justin Welby, Lord Archbishop of Canterbury, Primate of all England

Wasn’t His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, Earl of Merioneth and Baron Greenwich, (formerly Philip Mountbatten, formerly Prince Philip Schleswig-Holstein-Sonderburg-Gl├╝cksburg of Greece) just fantastic! Just like Jesus. He had almost as many titles as me.
