BRITAIN is heading in the wrong direction, according to the Archbishop of Canterbury.
The Most Rev Justin Welby (pictured) cited increases in the numbers of people sleeping rough and relying on food banks. He also pointed to a decline in tolerance for minority groups and a rise in the use of ‘vitriolic language’, during an interview with The Big Issue.
‘We have had an MP murdered,’ he said. ‘I am not saying we are in a crisis, I am just saying the direction of travel is not what we want.’
Asked about the scandal over Prince Andrew’s links to paedophile Jeffrey Epstein, he said it was wrong to expect the royals to be ‘superhuman saints’.
