The Smackdown Continues

The Archbishop of Canterbury continues in his role as whipping boy du jour. And justifiably so.

In this installment, Ruth Gledhill takes the Archbishop to task, and seconds my call for bringing in Sir Roderick Spode.

It's no surprise that the Archbishop has to resort to plead for punishment of "...thoughtless and, even if unintentionally, cruel styles of speaking and acting," If you are going to beclown yourself at this level, legal protection from your critics is your only real defense.
