Though I have to admit that at one point, both leaders of the opposition parties would have fallen under that stricture.


There is no rule against it has been said but but wolf in sheep's clothing while he was PM springs to mind.


Why would changing denominations after he left mean he was a wolf in sheep's clothing while PM? Are all Catholics wolves, then? ;)

The words "defender of the faith" spring to mind how can you be a catholic and be the defender of the Church of England?

Does that mean politics outweighs religion?


It certainly did at one time, in this country (as in many others) - Catholics could not build churches, could not attend university, etc.

I thought the Articles of Institution said that a Catholic could not form her majesty's government but I also seem to recall discussion here about that some time ago wherein others stated that had been abrogated, so...?

When he converted to conservatism, several years ago, nobody seemed to be too concerned.

story here

Would it really have mattered if he had done this while Prime Minister? For example, do you think that he would have had to have voted against abortion if he had "converted" earlier?
