Adjournment or not.. I can't see it passing in Novemebr either.

"I can't see it passing in November either" Me neither but if by some fluke it does get through with watered down amendments then - if the Amended Measure contains even the slightest hint of consecrated women being in any way "second class" then it certainly won't get through Parliamentary scrutiny. We have to go back as far as the Thatcher/Runcie era to find a time when the relationship between Church and State has been at such a low ebb as this.

At the outset it seems promising.We are summonsed
to submit feedback of proposed legislation from grass-roots level in the P.C.Cs.
After close scrutiny through reams of legal speke
we draw our conclusions thereof.
If we vote 'AGAINST' the measure it means we either say 'YES' to 'NO PROVISION AT ALL' or
'YES' to 'NEED MORE PROVISION'
...growing a little cryptic now.
Never mind,onwards and upwards for Diocesan approval then homeward bound to General Synod...
Oh wait a minute...just a little 'Bishop tweak' on the way...an irresistable finishing touch. That's more like it.

Good old Church of England!
