No prayers in council meetings

It is good news that the councillor in Bideford has won a court case to remove prayers at the start of council meetings.

I have been to a few meetings at Havant Borough Council and was a bit shocked that this was happening in a political meeting designed to discuss and vote on issues for everyone in our community. It does alienate people who have no interest in religion and is plain wrong. Such traditions can have a distorting influence on the way democracy is progressed.

I hope the old peoples club that we call Havant Borough Council will take note and changes made.
