SOURCE EXPRESS: David Cameron claims 'Big Society' is the work of Jesus
The Conservative leader's vision of Big Society was a cornerstone of his 2010 General Election campaign. But, speaking last night, he said the idea was just a continuation of Jesus's work. "Jesus invented the Big Society 2,000 years ago," the Prime Minister told Downing Street's Easter reception. "I just want to see more of it." During the event, Mr Cameron also compared himself to a company that unblocks drains. He said: "If there are things that are stopping you from doing more, think of me as a giant Dyno-Rod." Voters quickly took to Twitter to deride the PM following his remarks. One wrote: "So it's official then. The PM's gone mad."

SOURCE TELEGRAPH: Bishops condemn Government welfare reforms
In an open letter 27 bishops have criticised Government welfare reforms saying that too many people were having to choose between "heat or eat" as a result of "cut backs and failures in the benefit system." The Anglican bishops write: "Half a million people have visited food banks in the UK since last Easter and 5,500 people were admitted to hospital in the UK for malnutrition last year."
