UK: Queen luvverly, too bad about the peasants, says old man in frock
Promiscuity, separation and divorce are at ‘epidemic’ proportions, a senior Church of England bishop has warned as he called for Britain to use the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee as an opportunity to reflect and reassess values.
The Rt Rev Richard Chartres, Bishop of London, writing in a Bible Society pamphlet about the origins of the word jubilee, said Britain was now an ‘enormously different’ society compared to 1952 – the year of the Queen’s accession to the throne – and in ‘so many ways’ a better place to live.
But he said inequality had grown and material progress had been at the expense of communal life with relationships within families, communities and society ‘more strained, more fragile’ and more broken than people cared to recognise.
I just put this in for the picture. Isn’t it wonderful!
