Quotes

...Maundy coins still bear the original portrait used on coins issued in the year of her Coronation in 1953," the Royal Mint said in a news release. "Since the start of the Queen’s reign, The Royal Mint has struck more than 400,000 of the limited edition Maundy coins."
He said: "I couldn't imagine I would go to something like this in my lifetime."
And he does his best. "Some people," he writes, "feel that in this ever more secular age we shouldn't talk about these things. I completely disagree. I believe we should be more confident about our status as a Christian country, more ambitious about expanding the role of faith-based organisations, and, frankly, more evangelical about a faith that compels us to get out there and make a difference to people's lives."
Sir Mike said: "The new inspections are designed to provide people with a clear picture of the quality of the services in their local hospital, exposing poor or mediocre care as well as highlighting the many hospitals providing good and excellent care."
