Comments: Dean of Jersey apologises and is reinstated

Peter Ould points out that a PR firm were handling this matter for the diocese. Have Winchester outsourced their press relations or is this a one off?

This has already been a PR disaster. What is the Visitation designed to achieve? No doubt it will confirm the Bishop was correct to withdraw the Dean's Commission, but given the legal tangle he got into this will be hard to adduce. Why did the bishop publish the report without first engaging in further reflection and analysis? A Whitehall permanent secretary would never have allowed a Minister to publish something that was prone to exacerbate a tricky situation. It is not the case that the Church always needs to run scared and conduct this sensitive business in an greenhouse. Smacks of inexperience all round from where I sit.
