The Blog of
Nadine Dorries
Archbishop Cranmer
Posted Friday, 8 June 2007 at 12:15

Yesterday, I was most honoured to receive a bottle of Champagne, presented by Sam Coates, on behalf of Archbishop Cranmer.

 

The Archbishop had won the Champagne as an award for his blog, however, due to his lack of corporeal state, he was unable to accept.

 

In honour of this event, I feel far too humble to blog myself today and would therefore ask my readers to go straight to the Archbishop's site and read the kind words he has to say about this one.

 

Nadine
 
Many Thanks Archbishop!

Isn't it fantastic when something you know in your heart and mind is right starts making sense to others in high places.

The pleasure is His Grace's. However, he is unable to drink champagne (or even hold the glass) owing to the lack of corporeal *state*, not 'estate', as you state, though, as a statement of fact, he lacks one of those also. Richest blessings upon your important efforts to defend the sanctity of life. +Cranmer

Nadine, Well I'm sure His Grace is with you in spirit (the holy kind). I applaud his generosity and it couldn't have been given to a more brilliant blogger. Enjoy! I am studying for a PR postgraduate diploma and have chosen to write a research paper on MPs blogging. I would be very grateful if you would complete a survey I will be issuing shortly, would that be ok?

It is gratifying to see that, despite his lack of corporeal state (and the difficulties that brings for someone presented with a bottle of champagne), His Grace is nevertheless able to successfully access the internet from some time in the early 1550's. His Grace writes a fine blog but, for the style of the reformation period, the script is somewhat lacking in illumination. Perhaps His Grace could contact Bill Gates and request the inclusion of a more appropriate font in the next release of Windows? His Grace made an excellent choice when deciding on 'the fragrant' Mrs Dorries as the recipient of his prize. A far better decision than flogging it on ebay.

Nadine, I think you doth protest too much. Is the reason you are not blogging more to do with drinking the champagne?!!!

Hardly, since he was executed in 1556.But at least he is still with us in spirit, which is more than I can say for some members of HM Government.

Iain, It would take a lot more than a bottle of Champers (which is still sat in the office fridge) to stop me blogging - more like a frenetic day in the constituency, which you will soon understand when you become an MP!

I must confess that when Nadine does not blog I go awandering around cyberspace to see what the other MP bloggers are up to. I wish I did not.To the man in the street, politics is boring, to read some of the these MP's blogs is tedium totaled.I have not come across one that boasts more than 3 comments.The formats are rubbish.Please save me the stress of venturing out,and blog more Nadine.You are without question the blog goddess.

Sorry Nadine, ignore my selfish request. I sometimes get carried away and forget how busy you are.Perhaps you could have guest bloggers write when you're busy or a ghostblogger. I wonder how the Archbishop is fixed!

Mr John, The Archbishop is exceedingly busy. You'd think that hanging around in an ethereal ectoplasmic nebula would give one a lot of free time; in fact, time is so condensed that His Grace is absorbed by an overwhelming sense of finitude. Thank you for the kind thought, though. (Why does this blog not permit one the use of line spaces or paragraphs? For one so articulate in her defence of grammar schools and the quality of education found in the private sector, one would think she might trust her contributors with the paragraphic...)

Is this man(?) out of this world or what!It gets even more spookier when you realise his was the 13th comment.Polite,intelligent and charming no wonder the equally talented Nadine is swooning (I quote'give me a man with a brain anyday' although I'm not sure if a ghostly status qualifies)I can see why centres of education are named after him.

What a charming ghost of a man the Archbishop is. That was indeed a sad day when they stopped executing those in power.Mind you, I think Tony and Cherie will haunt us forever, regardless of any execution.
