Justin Welby and Vincent Nichols resign

Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, and Vincent Nichols, Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, offered their shock resignations today, following the referendum in which the people of the UK voted to leave the EU.

Unskilled workers: no reasonable offer of employment refused.

Welby and Nichols had campaigned vigorously for "Remain", convinced that the EU was God's own system of government, and that Jean-Claude Juncker was a truly holy man, beloved of the Lord. Discovering, however, that they had called it wrong and that God probably regards Juncker as a bit of a prat, the two Archbishops have realised that their positions as pastoral leaders are untenable.

Spot the difference. (Justin and Vincent didn't!)

Meanwhile, you may judge your own attitude to the European Union, by deciding which of these hymns best reflects your reaction to the result of the referendum.

1. O God our help in ages past.
2. Now thank we all our God.
3. God moves in a mysterious way.

God moves in a mysterious way.


  1. So just like the USCCB that is soooo disappointed about the Supreme Court ruling against Obama's disastrous illegal immigration policy, these men have decided to confuse globalism with the Kingdom of God.

  2. If Justin Time and Nick are on their bikes . . . and Dave has fallen on his sword at No. 10 . . . perhaps Dave could move down to Canterbury and get measured up for a big pointy-hat ?

  3. The news you reported is unsettling.

    I thought all of us Christians wanted to remain in an organization whose parliament building is shaped like the tower of Babel and whose logo mocks the twelve tribes symbolized in the Apocalypse.

    Are you possibly being facetious?

  4. "You have sat here too long for the good you do,in the name of God go"

  5. Hows about 'Archbishop Nige' as the next Primate of All-England?
