    England and Wales, formerly Christian countries

    Words on a screen have a 2-D impression leaving the reader to make up their mind as to the context behind the tone of specific words used to impart the meaning. I take the call to 'disestablish' the role of the Anglican Church in matters of State and in schools to mean leaving politicians and...

    England and Wales, formerly Christian countries

    Yes, it does depending on the context of the intended use within a sentence. Some Republicans would cheerfully abolish the Church while moderates will settle for disestablishing the role of the Church in the state and in education. Which are you?

    Matt Hancock Apologises.
