Shocking that this has to be debated!

Can anyone really want old and elderly bereaved women and men to be denied their partners' pension in their final years ?

I'm surprised this has not been resolved in England already. It has in Scotland, a long time ago.

So first the Bishop of Ripon and Leeds claims on radio and in the press that the bullying of clergy is unheard of, rare and always dealt with brilliantly by the bishops (despite the - unscientific - Church Times poll which overwhelmingly contradicts him) and now explains why basic justice cannot be done..........

'Of course I believe in the apostolic succession! How else could I explain the direct descent of the bishop of ... from Judas Iscariot?'
