I should say at the beginning that I think the UK would be wise to protect its sovereignty (and currency) from the EU. But that is beside the point. I am downright flabbergasted that the Archbishops of Canterbury and York have seen fit to lead the Church of England into pontificating on the subject. More specifically, they have officially criticized PM Cameron’s veto of an EU treaty.
That the Archbishops did not have enough sense to see this might not be an area in which the Church of England has any expertise or authority or credibility or unction amazes. And where is the consideration for the fact that many faithful in the Church of England have a very different view on participation in the European Union?
I would say the sooner the Hairy Lefty departs from the throne of Canterbury the better. But Canterbury candidate Sentamu also participated in this farce.
God help England with a national church this . . . stupid.
