However, Blair went on to complain that people in Britain regard religion with suspicion - especially when used as a defence for their decisions by their politicians. He opined:
"It's difficult if you talk about religious faith in our political system. If you are in the American political system or others then you can talk about religious faith and people say 'yes, that's fair enough' and it is something they respond to quite naturally. You talk about it in our system and, frankly, people do think you're a nutter."According to Blair's ultra-sympatico confidante, Peter 'The Pederast' Mandleson, apparently Blair takes a Bible with him wherever he goes and habitually reads it last thing at night - and I'll leave it to my readers to ponder how, exactly,Mandy came to know that.
