Lords Reform Implications For Church

George CareyGeorge Carey, former Archbishop of Canterbury, speculates in today's Times on possible implications of Labour's confused attempts to reform the House of Lords:

"Any substantial reduction or abolition of the role of bishops in the House of Lords will result in the unravelling of the Establishment of the Church of England... I don’t believe that the Prime Minister intends to damage the Church-State link but he is playing into the hands of intolerant secularists whose aim seems to be division, not unity."
