totally unbiased BBC saying that protestors have claimed another scalp.

Now the Dean of St. Pauls has announced that he will be resigning his post.

The totally unbiased BBC has called this a second scalp for the protestors, without having heard any further explanation from the Dean, apart from his statement —It has become increasingly clear to me that, as criticism of the cathedral has mounted in the press, media and in public opinion, my position as Dean of St Paul’s was becoming untenable. In order to give the opportunity for a fresh approach to the complex and vital questions facing St Paul’s, I have thought it best to stand down as dean, to allow new leadership to be exercised. I do this with great sadness, but I now believe that I am no longer the right person to lead the Chapter of this great cathedral.

He is resigning because of criticism, as stated.

None of that criticism has come from the protestors but, as he says, from their antagonists in, and through,  the media.

Surely, then, it is the media and who they represent, who have claimed another scalp.

( a rock doesn’t cause you stress, unless there’s a hard place to oppose it, with you in the middle)

The Bishop of London is now in the front line between the media (interestingly, his wife is a freelance writer) and the protestors.

As he says on his promo for the internet church (http://www.londoninternetchurch.org.uk/Home/Welcome+Note) he is all for face to face discussion and communication of the Christian message.

As his internet church is based upon St. Stephen’s, Walbrook, which is right next door to Mansion House, perhaps he will invite Boris and the protest organisers to step  inside and have a face to face chat.
