Sounds attractive, doesn't it, to us nonbelievers, agnostics, secularists and whatnot? An atheist prime minister. A breath of fresh air after that religious nutcase Blair.
And it could just happen. David Miliband could just, one day, occupy Number Ten, and he's an avowed atheist. A C Grayling, the atheist philosopher and columnist, believes there are advantages to our having an atheist in the top job.
You might say, "Well, he would say that, wouldn't he?" Maybe so. But he gives some good reasons why a nonbeliever at Number Ten would be better for the country. Have a look.
