BBC political editor Nick Robinson was entertainingly 'ambushed' by a silent protester outside parliament this evening, as he attempted to deliver a live report to the Six O'Clock News TV studio on the Comprehensive Spending Review.
For John Wesley and the Methodist Church he founded, it is inconceivable to follow Christ and not have the welfare of the poor and the vulnerable close to your heart, says Alison Tomlin. That is why the Church says that the government's spending cuts should be judged by their impact on the most vulnerable.
The Comprehensive Spending Review is expected to be bad news for universities and especially bad news for those who teach in the humanities, says theologian and ethicist Graeme Smith. Action is needed. But are strikes really the most effective response to damaging cuts?
