In the UK one of the political parties (the Liberal Democrats) has recently elected a new leader in Nick Clegg.
In one of his first radio interviews since taking over as leader, Clegg admitted he does not believe in God.
Not sure if anyone would have admitted to that one a few years back...
...mind you the Liberal Democrats are not likely to win an election over here - they fit in as the third largest party, and the UK is normally governed by either the Conservatives or the Labour Party. I would imagine that it might not have happened were he the leader of either of those two.
