You can always count on an establishment figure such as the Archbishop of Canterbury to come to the assistance of …well, the establishment!
“The “systematic humiliation” of MPs is threatening Britain’s democracy, the Archbishop of Canterbury has warned. Dr Rowan Williams, writing in The Times tomorrow, says that the issues raised by the expenses scandal are grave and that urgent action is required. He adds: “But many will now be wondering whether the point has not been adequately made: the continuing systematic humiliation of politicians itself threatens to carry a heavy price in terms of our ability to salvage some confidence in our democracy.”
I wonder who are the “many” are to whom the Druid refers? These clerical clown does NOT get it, at all.
One question – can we see YOUR expenses, Dr Williams ?
