A leading Anglican theologian has called for the resignation of Pope Francis.

Professor Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford called for the resignation yesterday in an address to the annual assembly of Women in Ministry, a pressure group for women’s ordination.

‘Francis masquerades as a liberal,’ said Percy, ‘but he has done nothing to advance the ordination of women or gays. How can he head-up a modern, forward-looking Church in the twenty-first century? He should either appoint a quota of female cardinals immediately or go into retirement like his predecessor.’

Dr Martyn Percy has been vainly in search of notoriety for some time.
