The case for a peer­age

The Church of England - - LETTERS -

Sir, The Arch­bishop of West­min­ster rightly speaks out for the poor, needy and marginalised.

In the week in which he is made a Car­di­nal by the Pope, it might be good, rather than try­ing to rid him­self of tur­bu­lent priests, if the Prime Min­is­ter made Vin­cent Ni­chols a Peer.

In the House of Lords he would join Arch­bish­ops Justin and Sen­tamu and oth­ers who reg­u­larly re­mind us that the needs of those with no voice need to be both heard and ad­dressed in a com­pas­sion­ate so­ci­ety.
