Our former Prime Minister (who famously didn’t do God) seems to have wasted no time at all since he left office converting with unseemly haste to Roman Catholicism and setting up his very own Faith Foundation (Nerdy Note: rel=”nofollow” attribute invoked in hyperlink tag to signal my utter non-endorsement).
I couldn’t help noticing that, with equally unseemly haste, said faith foundation has been awarded charitable status (registered in England, no 1123243)—hot on the heels of the delightfully named HA.SH Foundation.
I have it on very good authority that it’s a job and a half getting an organisation registered as a charity in England. The question has to be asked, was Blair fast-tracked?
Or perhaps he just had a quiet word with his imaginary friend in the sky.
