I have to admit I am impressed, its not often that Rowan opens his mouth and doesn’t make me want to cringe, but this time they have said something worthwhile.

Dr Rowan Williams and Dr John Sentamu said it would be “tragic” if people abstained or voted BNP at the local and European elections on 4 June.

Their statement said disillusionment was understandable but voters should not allow their anger to be exploited.

The BNP said the bishops did not represent the views of the public.

All of this obviously comes from the BNP campain suggesting that Jesus would vote for them. I’m not saying I know who Jesus would vote for – that would be between him and the ballot box, but I’m sure he wouldn’t vote for such a far right party.
