Someone in the house of commons has a sense of humour. Albeit the dark kind :)
A motion calling for the disestablishment of the Church of England appeared on the House of Commons order paper today – bizarrely numbered 666, the number associated with the Antichrist.
Bob Russell, Liberal Democrat MP for Colchester, one of the signatories, said: “It is is incredible that a motion like this should have, by chance, acquired this significant number.
“This number is supposed to be the mark of the Devil. It looks as though God or the Devil have been moving in mysterious ways.
“What is even stranger is that this motion was tabled last night when MPs were debating blasphemy.”
I like the UK house of parliament, when people watch it they can’t believe how loud and adversarial it is. Keeps ’em on their toes, says I.
