Well done the flying archbishop.

HAVEN'T we got a dynamic Archbishop of York living in Bishopthorpe Palace?

First he cut up his dog collar to protest against the callous actions of President Mugabe. Now 58-year-old Dr John Sentamu sky-dives from 13,000ft in aid of a charity supporting the families of paratroopers from the 3rd Battalion the Parachute Regiment who have been killed or wounded in action in Afghanistan.

So many people in influential positions pontificate about what should be done without committing themselves. it's good to see a man of the cloth taking the lead. Well done.
