Oct 23, 2020 by

UK Internal Market Bill: the Archbishops are confused, poorly advised, and wrong

Oct 23, 2020 by

by Archbishop Cranmer: The Archbishops of the United Kingdom have written a joint letter fairly and equally to all tabloids and broadsheets decrying the moral state of the nation and calling for repentance exclusively to the Financial Times decrying the UK Internal Market Bill and calling for it to be amended.
