What do the majority of Anglican bishops – who have not condemned austerity’s impact on the poor – really think?

Posted on

I was pleased to note this morning that 43 Anglican Bishops had condemned the impact of the government's cuts programme on the poor in a letter in the Telegraph.

Then I did a quick count of how many Bishops there are, including suffragans, some of whom signed the letter. Allowing for vacancies there are more than 100.

So what of the majority of the Anglican's bishops who did not sign? Are they in favour of cuts? And is anyone asking them, because if so they've got a lost of explaining to do.
