There we were, studiously doing some research on the Childcare Bill, when we stumbled across this story:
Insurers have withdrawn a policy covering the costs of an immaculate conception and the upbringing of the Christ-child which had been taken out by three sisters in the event of the second coming.
Essex-based Britishinsurance.com confirmed it had provided the £1m policy, but said it was reviewed on Thursday following complaints. The firm said the women from Inverness had renewed the policy since 2000. The cover was meant to pay for the cost of bringing up Christ if one of them has a virgin birth.
