House of Lords: No happy Christians here please…

Nice spot in Hansard from Jeff Peel…

Lord Kilclooney: My Lords, I had not intended to speak in this debate, but having heard some of the contributions, I find it very interesting. I speak as a happy Christian, an Ulster Protestant and a great friend of Islam.

The Deputy Chairman of Committees (Lord Colwyn): My Lords, I think that the noble Lord has missed the opportunity to speak in the gap, which was before the noble Lord, Lord Taverne. I stand open to suggestion.

Lord Kilclooney: I was going to be very brief. Perhaps the humanists still want to hear my contribution.

Noble Lords: No.
