ESS Chair Gary McLelland suggests the disestablishment of the Church of England in the New Statesman

New Statesman 16.11.12-22.11.12

Losing faith
I enjoyed Terry Eagleton’s critique of Roger Scruton’s work on the historyof the meek and mild Church of England (The Critics, 9 November). However, I think we can take Eagleton’s conclusions one step further by promoting the disestablishment of the Church of England. It serves no useful purpose in society that could not be achieved by increased political democracy.
Gary McLelland
