And about bloody time too! Chancellor of the Exchequer, ‘pasty-faced’ George Osborne (right) is to allow large stores to open longer than the current 6-hours on the ‘day of rest’. Responsibility will be in the hands of local authorities. This relaxation of an archaic law should have occurred 20-years ago, after all, purpose-built shopping malls are to some, religious temples! Sadly, until the credit card came along, God was all-powerful! I should imagine one or two of the all-powerful Church Commissioners who control the Church of England’s vast £7billion of assets may well find themselves on their laptops on Sundays checking their personal pensions are properly ring-fenced against any future Greek bailout!
