Just have a look for yourself – Charles' peddling of his own blend of new-age-spirtuality-meets-monotheism-with-some-anti-scientific-environmentalism-throw-in-for-good-measure mumbo jumbo has earned him a nomination for our prestigious Bad Faith Award, and it seems his ghostwriters have helped him compile his beliefs into one handy, easy to demolish volume. It's a book that could have been published just to entertain crtics, and Eagleton has certainly had some fun with it. And in the process, the former Professor of Cultural Theory at the University of Manchester seems to reveal that who knows who Jedward are, although he doesn't say whether he's a fan.
So does this boost Charles' chances of taking the Bad Faith Award to Sandringham this Christmas? He's currently sitting in 4th place behind Ann Widdecombe, with an Islamic fundamentalist 1-2 leading the field. Here's the poll if you still haven't placed your vote.
