George Carey on UK Immigration

I’m heartened that the former Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey has bravely injected some common sense into the UK debate on immigration.

Such common sense often is lacking in the Church of England. More often, you hear the welcome everybody bit. Last autumn, I went to a Sunday Eucharist at Magdalen College Oxford. The choir was great. But they ditched one of the canticles. Instead, there was this long sermon on immigration from a decidedly less common sense view than ++Carey’s.

That was the only Sunday Eucharist I attended at Magdalen.
