David Cameron has hailed the virtues of Christianity in Britain, saying the UK should be proud of its “status as a Christian country”.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage has fought back at the “immensely privileged” Times journalists who accused him of misusing EU taxpayers cash.
A survey of 150 MPs has revealed an upbeat outlook for the economy in the 12 months ahead of the next general election. Data collected by polling and research firm ComRes shows that 75% of MPs expect economic growth to continue into 2015, and 66% think that unemployment will fall in the next 12 months.
UKIP leader Nigel Farage is under fire for receiving £15,000 in office expenses to run his constituency office in Bognor Regis despite paying no rent on the property.
