When I travel on the London underground I am amused by the announcement 'Mind the Gap', it makes me smile as I believe that there is someone here who cares about my safety and well-being. It also makes me cautious and makes me alert to the possible impending danger. Yet today in our fast moving consumer society there is a yawning gap between ‘me and you’, ‘husband and wife’, ‘people and the government’,’ employees and the employer’, ‘us and them’,’ Muslims and Christians’. Who is there to tell us mind the Gap?

‘Please stay’ was the title under which The Scotsman published a letter from Peter Riddell on the forthcoming Scottish referendum on whether to leave the United Kingdom. In it he likens the English attitude to that of a husband who is vaguely aware of his wife’s unhappiness, but who can’t bring himself to believe that she would ever leave him.

Dr Philip Boobbyer, Reader in History at the University of Kent, reflects that in the furore surrounding David Cameron’s recent assertion that Britain is a Christian country, little was made of the fact that he finds peace at Anglican Communion services. ‘I find a little bit of peace and hopefully a bit of guidance’, he announced at a Downing Street reception before Easter.

Most state visits by royalty and presidents seldom make it to the history books. However, in recent years, two state visits can truly be called historic. The first of these is the visit of the Queen of England to Ireland in 2011 and the second is the visit of the President of Ireland to Windsor in 2014. Both of these visits have opened new chapters in history. Dr Roddy Evans describes their historical significance.
