My last blog focused on the way in which politics has become dominated by a belief in money instead of people, from the perspective of Labour and the Unions.

Rather than writing a further post reflecting on how this is also – and even more so – the focus of Conservative policies, may I simply refer people to Fr Ed’s blog post of today following the Budget?

If Catholics everywhere took the Church’s social teaching seriously, and started engaging with politicians about it – and engaging in a lot of prayer! – we might just start to turn this thing round!
