Archbishop of York Nails Gulag UK

In a speech before the Institute of Jewish Policy Research, the Archbishop of York has called out New Labour’s Gulag UK:

Our current Government is in danger of sacrificing Liberty in favour of an abused form of equality – not a meaningful equality that enables the excluded to be brought into society, but rather an equality based on dictat and bureaucracy, which overreaches into the realm of personal conscience.

Good on ++York for telling it like it is! The complete speech may be found here.

I would change a couple of things in the speech, however. For one thing, I would not quote Jim Wallis favorably. For another, New Labour is sacrificing Liberty in favor of its faux equality. But good on ++York for calling out Gulag UK nonetheless.
