Comments: Shakespeare and religion

hmmmm ... "A british diplomat who served in Moscow and Kiev?" Could her husband be the Asquith who was on the list of spooks published by Mohammed al-Fayed, and supplied to him by Richard Tomlinson? I remember this detail because one of his sisters was a friend of mine.

Looks like it, which might explain why being rubbished by Stanley Wells didn't bother her. (In our household Wells is revered in the same way as Diarmaid MacCulloch is.) Polly Toynbee didn't seem at all convinced by her either, see,3604,1559440,00.html
although this almost certainly won't bother Clare Asquith at all.
