Archbishop’s headgear

02 November 2012


From the Bishop of Antsiranana

Sir, - The cartoon that heads the article by Ted Harrison, "Uneasy lies the head that wears the mitre" ( Comment 28 September), shows a health-and-safety official handing over a hard hat to a bemused Archbishop's secretary, saying: "In view of the statistics, I'm afraid the traditional mitre must make way for more practical headgear."

If he had visited Archbishop George Carey in his Lambeth Palace study, his eye might have caught sight of two - or was it three? - such hard hats perched on top of the glass-fronted bookcase.
