I do wonder you know.
The current Dean (who Ritchie is accusing of selling out to the bankers for the money they donate), Graeme Knowles, used to be (until 2007) the Bishop of Sodor and Man.
The Bishop of Sodor and Man is, ex officio, a member of the Legislative Council, the upper part of the Tynwald, the Parliament of the islands.
Ritchie has, as we all know, been snarling at the Isle of Man for years.
There couldn\’t be, could there, something, you know, historic, about this antipathy, could there?
