Comments: More responses to the vote part 1

Surely WATCH is overstating things - you'll have a new Synod in 2015, which is just three years, right? That's hardly an entire generation.

It is worth remembering that WATCH only came out in favour of this legislation 14 days ago and even then noted strongly held minority views from within its own constituency - people who didn't think it worth having women as bishops on these terms.

That minority view has been difficult to hear in the last 24 hours.

Kevin, for whatever it is worth, that minority view was my view. I expressed it several times before the vote.

I think this result is actually in the CofeE's long-term best interest.

I look forward to a single-clause measure the next time.
