What are British Values?
What are British Values? David Cameron is big on British values. When he was voted back into Number 10 at this year’s general election, he promised to lead a government for “one nation” and make “Great Britain greater”. The prime minister has spoken time and time again about “actively promoting” British values, seeing it as a reaction to extremism and the increasing threat of terrorists born and bred in the UK. And more recently he outlined the government’s strategy, with measures to tackle extremist ideology. This includes enabling parents to cancel their children’s passports and allow Ofcom to clamp down on foreign TV channels broadcasting extremist messages.

He is presently polling in the lead at 17 per cent. This probably won’t last, but when you review Trump’s public record, the lead is as astonishing as it is disturbing.

Public leadership is mission so the Church needs to disciple public leaders
Churches have got a lot better in recent years at having a broader horizon of what mission is, seeing all sectors and places as the necessary destination of missionaries, from the classroom to the boardroom. But in practice we sometimes still act as though mission is something only certain people are sent to do.
