Religious apparitions have often played significant roles in political history. to cite only one example remember when Roman Emperor Constantine saw a vision of the end of paganism and suddenly a cross appeared in his sky vodka.
Something quite similar seems to have happened in English politics this week. Tory aspirant David Cameron explained that while out and about meditating on Labour's lost love for the UK along the moors, he had a "religious experience".
Cameron reported: "At first I thought it was the ghost of Heathcliff but as the phantasm approached I saw that the manly figure was none other than St Magaret Mary Thatcher, the once saviour of Great Britain. She told me to abandon her free market economics and fiddle about with the Labour party mess till Britannia ruled the waves once more!"
