Dissension in the ranks (who'd have thunk it?)

The Bishop of Winchester (pictured) and with whom I had dinner earlier this year and the Bishop of Exeter (whom I don't know) take Rowan to the woodshed.

"However, the Rt Rev Michael Scott-Joynt, the Bishop of Winchester, said that the Archbishop’s plan to maintain unity lacked a sense of urgency and was unlikely to work. “The Lambeth Conference is required to do something rather than live down to the worst expectations of the bishops who stayed away,” he said. “We need to negotiate a separation in the Communion sooner rather than later, to leave the strongest possibility of remaining in some kind of fellowship.”
