On Thursday 12th June, Hazel Blears will join Gordon Brown at 10 Downing Street for a reception. The guests will be members of the Christian community organisation Faithworks, and in particular the winners of the 2008 Faithworks Awards.
I am only speculating, but does this seem rather convenient to anyone else? Just this week, we've had the Church of England slagging off the government, and Hazel justifying Labour's prioritising of Islam on the grounds that it might stop extremism. I note that the Faithworks Awards were actually awarded earlier this year on the 5th February; does it really take that long to organise a 'congratulations' reception?
