A spirited discussion

  • Comment

Meanwhile, former heritage secretary Virginia Bottomley had some barbed comments to make about the pavilion which Eva Jiricna is (still, we think) designing. Was Mandelson aware that Christian and other faith groups were extremely upset that the Government was exploiting the dome for political purposes (surely not) and at the 'insult' of Eva's zone being called the Spirit Level. 'It sounds more like a place where Mystic Meg should hang out,' she opined. Mandelson had a ready response: 'That's rich coming from the right hon Lady, the leader of whose party said recently that he would rather take a walk than go to church.'
