    Bishop Michael Curry says he 'could feel slaves' at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding

    Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding was one of the most memorable parts of the ceremony and he’s since reflected on the event. Curry, who delivered a stirring speech on the power of love, said that afterwards he “could feel slaves around the place” - calling it a “sign of hope.”Curry, who has published a new book called Love is the Way, said of the experience to People, “After I preached the sermon, I just remember it was like I could feel slaves around the place. I don't mean to be spooky, but it was like their voice was somehow heard that day. I included one of their songs, 'There is a Balm in Gilead.'”

    Revealed: Sir Patrick Vallance has £600,000 shareholding in firm contracted to develop vaccines

    The UK’s chief scientific adviser has a £600,000 shareholding in a drugs giant contracted to develop a Covid-19 vaccine for the Government, prompting claims of a potential conflict of interest. Sir Patrick Vallance, who also chairs the Government’s expert advisory panel on vaccines, holds a deferred bonus of 43,111 shares in GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) worth £600,000 from his time as president of the multinational drug company, the Telegraph can reveal. He has already cashed in more than £5 million worth of shares he received from the company during his tenure from 2012 until March 2018, when he became the Government’s chief scientific officer. Accounts show he held 404,201 GSK shares when he left, worth £6.1 million at current values. In July, GSK and drugs multinational Sanofi agreed a deal with the UK Government to supply it with up to 60 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine, subject to final contract. It has a similar deal with the US Government for an initial 100 million doses as part of Donald Trump’s Operation Warp Speed. Earlier this week at the televised briefing heralding the latest Covid-19 crackdown (see video below), Sir Patrick predicted the first few doses of an effective Covid-19 vaccine might be available before the end of this year, but said it was far more likely any breakthrough will happen during the first six months of 2021.
