Boris Johnson has said Britain can look forward to “brighter days ahead” as the country celebrates Easter.
In his Easter message, the Prime Minister acknowledged it had been a “very tough” year, but said the holiday brought fresh optimism.
“This has been a very tough 12 months. But, as ever, the arrival of Easter brings with it new hope,” he said.
“And, this year more than ever, it brings the promise of brighter days ahead for us all.”
Mr Johnson acknowledged coronavirus restrictions meant many Christians would again be unable to celebrate their most important festival in the way they would wish.
However, he paid tribute to the way in which they had shown the teachings of Christ and the message of his death and resurrection “permeate through every aspect of daily life”.
“That’s why I’ve lost count of the number of church leaders and congregations that have stepped up to support us all in these very challenging times,” he said.

For men will be . . . holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; avoid such men as these” Boris is such a man , a charlatan

As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. 20 Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also.

Bojo's lost the plot, he's just trying to sound like someone in charge, but he's flailing around in a blind panic.

His lies told to the people of Northern Ireland will result in a United Ireland.He has managed to achieve in 1 year what so many have wanted for over 300 years.England you votes for Boris the Court Jester and your welcome to him and Brexit.

I understand your feelings that faith can cause people to do drastic things, but that is a very small percentage, and I think I speak for the rest of us when I say that they do not represent what we believe, and in many cases are less like us than non-believers. Happy Easter everyone - whatever your beliefs, because Jesus loved everyone, and so I will try to as well!

There is no evidence, far less proof, of the existence of a god or gods. Faith is what causes terrorists to kill themselves and others. There is no heaven, no afterlife, this is not a rehearsal, this is as good as it gets.
