Brown to relinquish PM's right to choose bishops

Dear reader, our blog has moved to a new address.

Do come on over (and change your bookmarks accordingly):

Could increased secularisation have arrived in the unlikely form of a committed Presbyterian Scot? In his first address to the Commons as Prime Minister, Brown outlined plans to give up the PM's right to have the final say on the appointment of bishops. The move forms part of an overall plan to reduce the vast constitutional powers held by the occupant of Number 10.
However, humanists, secularists, and anyone else outside of the Church of England should not get too excited just yet, as in the same speech Brown made it clear he still supports the establishment of the Church.

Brown is targetting the Church of England. That's the advantage of being ruled by a Scot.
