“Will no-one rid us of this turbulent priest?….”
It really is time that we had a new Archdruid of Canterbury. This one has clearly lost the plot as well as his marbles.
This week dear old Rowan once again failed to learn the lesson so painfully learnt by Becket all those years ago – namely that it is simply not his place to stick his nose into politics. Perhaps he should take his lead from the head of the Church of England, the Queen, and refrain at all times from commenting on politics at all.
But no. Rowan says “the public is gripped by fear over the Government’s reforms to education, the NHS and the benefits system” and he accuses David Cameron and Nick Clegg of forcing through “radical policies for which no one voted”. Of course, we didn’t vote for you to sit in the House of Lords either, Rowan, but let’s ignore that for now…
The Archbishop dismisses the Prime Minister’s “Big Society” as a “painfully stale” slogan, and claims that it is “not enough” for ministers to blame Britain’s economic and social problems on the last Labour government. Well, they were there for 13 years, Rowan, and they did wreck the economy with policies based on spite and political dogma…
And is he repentant for sticking his nose where it cearly doesn’t belong? On the contrary – he is understood to believe that the moment is right for him to enter the political debate.
Well you’re wrong, Rowan. Now is the time for you to shut up or bugger off.
