Those Faith Schools Don't Come Cheap, You Know

The leader of a minority religious sect has been having a bit of a waffle about whether Daveybloke's Big Society thingy is a toothy thingy or a toothless thingy. The Pontiff of Paedophilia's henchman in England and Wales, Vincent Nichols, demonstrated his church's usual up-to-the-minute intelligence by warning that Daveybloke's Big Society thingy, which for the past eleven months has been used as a cloak for masking central cuts, "should not be used as a cloak for masking central cuts". He also claimed, accurately enough, that the "philosophy of the big society [is] getting clearer", but appeared to believe that "the effects of the cuts becoming real" is not the reason for this clarity but makes some sort of contrast with it. Nichols also said that "a government cannot simply cut expenditure, wash its hands of expenditure and expect that the slack will be taken up by greater voluntary activity" and that "the poorest are taking the biggest hit while at the same time you see huge bank bonuses and profits and this is not right"; both of which statements are unimpeachably true, but sound rather odd coming from the representative of an extremely wealthy institution which preaches poverty to its dupes and, courtesy of Mussolini, houses its leader in a palace in Rome.

    As long as he doesn't burn anybody while making his pronouncements, it's OK.

    Yes, but only by our debased secular standards. Since the Church holds the monopoly on real compassion, it seems only proper to ensure that it's trading fairly.
