Dismayed to find this on sale at the York Minster Online Shop.
That’s right, you can spend £6.95 on a doll of Rowan Williams to hang on your Christmas tree. Or, if you’re one of the many Anglican pressure groups you can buy one and then squeeze as hard as you can to get it to say what you want. Or if you’re a journalist you can buy one and put words into his mouth.
But why buy one at all? With the 7 skinny cows emerging from the Nile and no Joseph’s stockpile from the years of plenty, I can’t see any possible world where this is the best use of £6.95.
Thanks to Huw for the tip off.
