The Bishop of Willesden, Pete Broadbent, has said the marriage of our future King (and his future boss) and Kate Middleton would “last about seven years”. He went on:
“We need a party in Calais for all good republicans who can’t stand the nauseating tosh that surrounds this event.”
I always thought the church took marriage seriously, but apparently not.
His employers, the Church of England, have said he was acting as an “individual”. ‘sfunny, I thought he was a bishop.
He’s since apologised. So that’s all right.
On the same day, the Bishop of Manchester, Nigel McCulloch, has complained to Ofcom that News Corporation’s full takeover of Sky “might lead to a harmful concentration of media power”.
I wonder – is he an individual or a bishop?
But Rupert Murdoch is confident that the takeover will not damage competition. So that’s all right.
