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."
