Sunday Mail Opinion; Voice of Scotland.

Cardinal Thomas Winning is respected across the political and religious spectrum for his integrity and forthright stance on moral issues.

He has weathered a torrid autumn of controversy over the former bishop Roddy Wright scandal with more dignity and fortitude than most could summon.

But he has fallen below his own high standards with his highly personal attack on Tony Blair over abortion.

That he should have singled out the Labour leader alone for failing to oppose abortion is grossly unfair. The Cardinal knows full well that all parties agree this is a matter MPs must decide according to their own consciences.

The Cardinal is entitled to his own deeply-held views on abortion.

But you can't write off an entire party and its leader just because you don't see eye- to-eye on a single issue.
