I think Bideford is probably atypical but this is not a good sign. When Eric Pickles was council leader in Bradford all those years ago he may have felt marginalised in religious terms as the mosques kept springing up around the city and whole districts became asian strongholds. Perhaps his plan is to get xian status to trump Islam politically and that without it we may all suffer in the long term. In this way even warsi would be assisting the plan. If reason has lost out CofE is the lesser of the many of the other evil mind viruses I would suggest but obviously secular government would be my preferred option.
