Bishop Nick has given a high profile lecture on how the numbers add up regarding Brexit. Addressing the question “the will of the people?” he has given the annual Harold Wilson Lecture at Huddersfield University.
“When Jesus of Nazareth stood before Pontius Pilate, he didn’t offer a referendum on what to do with him, but Pilate was moved by the will of the people in front of him to … wash his hands,” said The Rt Revd Nick Baines at the start of the prestigious annual lecture commemorating one of Britain’s best-remembered politicians.
The Bishop (pictured) went on to explore the origins behind the term “the will of the people” before discussing its use and meaning in the current political climate of Brexit. He stressed the need for it to be deconstructed and “ask what is meant by it, leaving to one side … its utilisation as an emotive slogan aimed at shutting down argument.”
