Children say the funniest things
I don't usually go in for this sort of thing. But one of the functions of Liberal England is to act as my own writer's notebook, and if you are a real writer then people are always saying strange or funny things in your hearing, Everyone loves it when Alan Bennett does it.
So here goes...
When I was in Ripon Cathedral last week a small boy said hesitantly to his mother, as if seeking confirmation:
"This is where the angels live."
And this afternoon when a group of small boys were running round Church Stretton churchyard I heard:
"If you're Jesus then I'm God."
