The Remain campaign has turned to divine intervention in its latest bid to win over voters in the EU referendum campaign.
The former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams is among 37 faith leaders who have signed a letter warning about the ‘implications’ of Brexit for peace in Europe.
Others adding their names to the message include Rabbi Laura Janner-Klausner and prominent Muslim academic Mona Siddiqui.
The individuals, who have signed in a personal capacity, urge ‘co-religionists and others to think about the implications of a leave vote for the things about which we are most passionate’.
