Speeches in the House of Commons by the Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg are an erudite comedy turn.

Obituary: The Right Rev William Westwood

"BISHOP BILL" was known to millions through his Thought for the Day broadcasts on Radio 4's Today programme. In an era when bishops have become far less important on the national scene than at any time since the Christian faith reached these islands, William Westwood retained the popular ear and was for many the voice of the Church.
