From the BBC’s newspaper review: "The Sunday Telegraph says a council has told staff not to use the phrase "singing from the same hymn sheet" because it could offend atheists. Salisbury Council has issued guidance to its employees, asking: "What would an atheist want with your hymn sheet?" But an official of the National Secular Society tells the paper he uses the phrase himself. "Of course, we should all avoid phrases that can cause unnecessary offence – but this isn’t one of them," he says."
Nick Rushton: Councils’ funding gap must be faced by the new Prime Minister – or we risk suffering at the ballot box.
