Our Prime Minister is a grinning, charmless twerp; our Archbishop of Canterbury has as much spiritual charisma as a raw potato; and the House of Windsor is Dullsville. I’d dump the whole lot of them tomorrow and replace them with a single Royal, Spiritual and Political leader – King Arthur.” A.N. Wilson, Evening Standard 1997

“A haunting elegy to all those people who refuse to accept that they cannot make a difference in a world they know must change.” Deborah Orr
