Congratulations to Justin Welby, our new Archbishop of Canterbury

Gave a 30 second interview today on the wonderful news that the Bishop of Durham has got the job as Archbishop: the church have chosen well. He is a rounded man, with great faith, and a true concern for the poor. All I have seen of him, and the times I have listened to him, I have been extremely impressed. I wish him well, although he has a tough in tray. Last but not least he has an understanding of the North, and more recently the North East.
