New Bishop of Ebbsfleet announced

This blog has learned that an announcement will be made before noon today of the appointment of the next Bishop of Ebbsfleet. 
In a surprise move, the new 'flying bishop'  will be Canon Giles Fraser, a priest well known in both traditionalist Anglo-Catholic and Conservative Evangelical circles. 
A source close to the Prime Minister said, 'this appointment will certainly help the Church of England get with the programme.'
Canon Fraser, believed to be leading the annual Christian Socialist post-Easter retreat in the Champagne region of France, was unavailable for comment.

Canon Fraser - friends say he was shocked at the news
(with apologies to Eccles & Bosco)


  1. Love it, love it, love it. Would it lower the tone to write LOL on your page? Happy Easter, Father!

  2. He isn't in France! He started off the Easter Egg Hunt in Cwmtillery Churchyard at 6.00 this morning.

  3. I am noting the date of this 'announcement' ... nice one!

  4. April "news" from LNYD reaches the parts other fools can not reach!

  5. Excellent! They couldn't find a better person.

    1. Why, were all the better people hiding?
