A very good morning to you.
Paul Jenner in for Phil on this wet, wet morning.
Speak No Evil
Following a now notorious incident with a radio microphone in Rochdale this week, Paul spoke to Rabbi Pete Tobias about the power of the tongue, and how the dangers of its misuse were well undertood all the way back to biblical times.
Krish Kandiah (above) from the Evangelical Alliance came into the studio and talked with Paul about the intersection between Christianity and politics. He has written a book called 'No Spin, Sleaze or Scandal... Just Politics.' For the book, Krish spoke to three politicians - a Conservative, a Liberal Democrat and a Labour MP -about their faith and their political life. He believes that Faith and politics are intrinsically connected. Would more politicians acting through their faith mean that there would be less spin and sleaze in our nation's political life?
Our paper reviewer this morning was Imam Monawar Hussein - the Deputy Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire and the Muslim Tutor at Eton College.
