Bishops attack 'immoral' and "corrupt" Labour

Oooooo, ahhhhh!!!, that is going to hurt, now 5 bishops have attacked Labour policy. I quote some of the juiciest bits.

They warned the country was suffering from family breakdown, an unhealthy reliance on debt and a growing gap between rich and poor.

The Rt Rev Tom Wright, the Bishop of Durham, told the Sunday Telegraph ministers had not done enough to help the poor.

"Labour made a lot of promises, but a lot of them have vanished into thin air," he said.

"We have not seen a raising of aspirations in the last 13 years, but instead there is a sense of hopelessness. While the rich have got richer, the poor have got poorer.

"When a big bank or car company goes bankrupt, it gets bailed out, but no one seems to be bailing out the ordinary people who are losing their jobs and seeing their savings diminished."

In a separate interview with the paper, the Right Reverend Nigel McCulloch, the Bishop of Manchester, accused Labour of being "beguiled by money" and "morally corrupt".

I am sure Gordon Brown will be chewing on the carpet and howling away. By the way, what happens when he goes to confession? does he get chewed out by his confessor?
