It sounds like the opening line of a joke, but it’s not.
Solace invited Rowan Williams to share a question-and-answer session in a pub in Cardiff today. Sounds like it was an interesting session, with questions including “Can God mend broken Britain?” and “What’s hell like and who’s going there?”
One quetion stunped the Archbish, though. “Who’s he voting for in The X Factor?” I can’t say I’m surprised. He must have more important things to do on a Saturday night.
I speak as one stranded in front of the X Factor final. And I gave in and let my daughters vote for their favourites (Alexandra and Eoghan, as it happens) I’ll be glad when it’s over.
