← Councils win prayer 'rights' as ministers fast track Localism Act powers

'In late 2010, Sir Alan Sugar criticised Pickles; referring to him as "another pointless politician doing yet another menial administrative job that could be done by anyone that has been educated in any vague sort of half coherent English".'

(Wikipedia's Pickles entry)

His last job was as Chairman of the Conservative Party. He was succeeded by Baroness Warsi. She may well succeed him in his current job as he is kicked upstairs or moved sideways out of the way.

Then we would have the current Minister without a Portfolio taking on the Portfolio for Communities and Local Government.

Wonderful. Let's all watch the demise of the Conservatives with a cheering glass of champagne (or several - it may take a while):-)

I don't think this prayer issue is finalised yet. It would be interesting in any case to see how many Local Government Councils take no notice of the regulation signed into law and keep on not having prayers in their formal business papers.
