It was reported this month that 53% of the UK population do not identify as religious.

This is what is known in Whitehall as a landslide. This is a tremendous victory for non-religious people. It's significant and symbolic. To ignore it invites unrest and division. We must obey the will of the people.

On Monday the demolition schedule will be rolled out across the UK. It will last two years and will see removal of all churches, mosques, synagogues, temples, cathedrals, meeting houses and other places of worship.

Some losers will object to this, but they need to get behind the plan and make it a success. The people have spoken.
