Do The Labour Leadership Contenders "Do God"?

22 July 2015, 22:53

One of the most revealing questions of the LBC Labour Leadership Debate saw the four rivals asked about their religious beliefs.

Liz Kendall answered first, saying she had considered herself an atheist when younger but now classed herself as agnostic.

Yvette Cooper said she "didn't really 'do' God" and said she was "vaguely agnostic".

Andy Burnham admitted that it was possibly a contradicition that he no longer considers himself a believer but still sends his kids to a Catholic school.

Jeremy Corbyn answered by saying he found issues of faith "fascinating" but didn't think it was right for politicians to parade their beliefs.
