London awoke yesterday to an unprecedented sight. On lamp posts, billboards and at bus stops, the capital had been plastered with posters defaming Justin Welby, the 105th Archbishop of Canterbury. Speculation is rife as to what person or group is responsible.
Both Changing Attitude and the Church of England Evangelical Council have denied responsibility.
Said Arun Arora, Church House spokesperson: ‘The campaign is literally inexplicable. The Archbishop is a well-loved figure whose public statements are carefully crafted to avoid offence.’
