Theresa May, the Prime Minister, has called for the country “to come together” and also “to be more confident about the role that Christianity has to play in the lives of the people”.
In her Easter message, the Prime Minister also said:
“So this Easter, whatever our faith, let us come together as a nation confident in our values, and united in our commitment to fulfil the obligations that we have to one another. Let us work together to build that brighter future we want for our country. And let us together build a stronger, fairer Britain that truly does work for everyone. And let me wish you all a very happy Easter”.
In the Easter message from Jeremy Corbyn, the Leader of the Opposition, he said:
“We hear painful stories every day, of homelessness, poverty or crisis in our health service – or across the world, of the devastating consequences of war and conflict, including millions forced to become refugees.
It would be easy to retreat into our private lives because the challenges seem overwhelming, or allow ourselves to be divided and blame others. But we need to respond to these problems head on, through action and support for social justice, peace and reconciliation”.
