From Sarah Hey. Read it all!!!!!!
One cannot conceive of what he could hope from so liberal and institutional an Anglican partisan. Efforts for relief or reform or discipline in the Communion are resisted and sabotaged by Cameron — see New Orleans HOB response as Exhibit A. He is the classic bureaucrat from Yes, Prime Minister.
My suspicion is that having a high-level Lambeth Palace bureaucrat in to the convention is supposed to somehow comfort those conservatives in the diocese who have determined that there will be no Anglican Communion discipline, order, or identity established. And they are certainly correct about that latter as long as the likes of Cameron are on the prowl. But I have no doubt that he will do his job at the convention — which is to deliver some sort of address that purports to hope for order and Communion integrity, with vague hints of Something Big To Come just as long as the laypeople sit tight and don’t make waves, as well as generous heaping helpings of Wait-Until-The-Covenant-Gets-Here.
But Lambeth apparatchiks have tipped their hand time and time again.
