The Church vs the Establishment

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.
