Nicholas Leonard: You can take it as gospel that David and Nick aren't best pals

IF David Cameron had not become British prime minister, he would have made a pretty competent Archbishop of Canterbury. Yesterday, in fact, he almost took on that job with the proclamation of an Easter Christian message.

Tony Blair was fervently religious but frightened of 'doing God' in case it cost the Labour party any votes. Cameron appears to have much less spiritual certainty than Blair but he has been through traumatic times with the death of a disabled son and he has no political inhibitions about quoting the Bible.
