J.R. for Archbishop!
Later today, or early tomorrow, who is to be the next Archbishop of Canterbury will be revealed to us. Following my success at predicting the next President of the USA, here's another tip you can put your money on.
This is my blog hit-chart as of today. Peaking at 400 views yesterday, the sharp drop-off represents dozens of depressed pig-farmers across Texas and the rest of the USA, who are now too upset about the election outcome to even turn on their computers, having learned about it in advance by some psychic Limey on the other side of the world.
Well, maybe knowing that the next Archbishop is going to be an oil executive may cheer them up a bit.
As a footnote, the Egyptian Coptic Christians have just selected a new Archbishop, and their method of doing so places much more of the decision-making process directly into the hands of God.
They write a few names on bits of paper, then stuff them in an old jam-jar. Carol Vorderman then steps up and sticks her hand in, randomly selecting the winning candidate. I think we should try that next time, but not with the US Presidency.
