To swear in the church

The expression can be used metaphorically in a situation where you give your opinion that is totally outrageous in the eyes of the people you are talking/writing to.

To curse in the church

To swear in the holy of holies or

To swear in the sanctuary.

These phrases convey the idea of committing a taboo or sacrilegious act, particularly in a sacred or revered place. The use of such expressions underscores the seriousness and inappropriateness of the action, as it involves violating the sanctity of a religious space.

Why are more than 700 postmasters still trying to clear their names and access even the most basic compensation more than two decades after they were falsely accused of theft?

On today’s episode Adeep Sethi tells us how his family warned the Post Office in 2002 about Horizon’s problems – he has the proof in a newspaper article. Twenty two years on, and torn apart, they are still fighting for justice.

We ask Tory MP and campaigner David Davis whether British justice has failed.

A spokesperson for Fujitsu – who rolled out the Horizon system – said: “Fujitsu has apologised for its role in their suffering. Fujitsu is fully committed to supporting the Post Office Horizon IT statutory Inquiry in order to understand what happened and to learn from it. Out of respect for the Inquiry process, it would be inappropriate for Fujitsu to comment further at this time.”

And how did Helen Harrison – partner of disgraced Tory MP Peter Bone – get selected as the candidate for his newly vacated seat of Wellingborough? It’s a News Agents mystery.
