Comments: Telegraph supports bishops

Actually, reducing the number of bishops to enable an increase in pay as well as to reflect the declining size of their flocks doesn't seem at all unreasonable to me -- archdeacons can help out a lot on the administrative side, can't they?

Get real these are huge sums of money -- on this stipend their children will not go unshod.

Cut the bishops' stipends and raise standards !
