Andreas Whittam Smith, founder of The Independent, is a secular archbishop and a particular hero of mine. But he has some daft ideas, and this is one of them. At the Our Kingdom website he asks number 744 in my series of Questions to Which the Answer is No:
Could a group of like-minded citizens running [...]
My series of Questions to Which the Answer is No has been falling behind recently, owing to British history being made with the veto that Nick Clegg seemed to accept until he realised that actually he was furious about it.
Anyway, the above, from The Daily Caller on Thursday, is number 743. Thanks to Anthony Cox.
The Daily Mail, still trying to attract my attention. All right. Questions to Which the Answer is No, number 741.
Labour’s Business, a collection of essays on how the party can convince voters that it is not hostile to wealth-creation, was published yesterday.

The report also features one of the finest picture captions of recent years:
Indiana Jones And The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull featured a conical alien skull similar to the one found in Peru.
Thanks to Oliver Kamm.
I am told by a Classicist, to whom thanks, that this question, asked by Guess-Which-Newspaper, is number 733 in my series of Questions to Which the Answer is No. (Thirteenth-century wall built on Roman wall at London Wall, right.)
We have recently had number 732, asked by the BBC:
