Bp W Column, 5.2.09 - dedalus28 - 05-03-2009

Wow. I am in total agreement with Williamson's statement. (Never thought I would say that, though)

I'm always happy to see the Bishop talking about the arts and keeping the politics in check.

It's got me thinking though - how good a patron of the arts would a modern king be?!  Imagine the future King William financing exhibitions of Spice Girls memorabilia! :)
