I say! That’s simply not cricket!

Oh my! Well obviously I cannot read this article. It’s behind a pay wall and frankly I get enough insults at my lack of faith without having to pay to read it. But Rabbi Shmuley Boteach obviously doesn’t like us very much. All I can say is that the UK is moving on up in …
