There is a report in the Sunday Telegraph (Sun 17 Feb 08) which indicates that a number of Church of England bishops are concerned that moves to end the prime minister's involvement in key clerical appointments may prefigure disestablishment. Some in the church have also been expressing the view that the reaction to Rowan Williams' religious and civil law intervention makes it more likely. I suspect they will not be using the word "unavoidable". The issue will be explored on BBC Radio 4's Sunday programme tomorrow morning, and my colleague Jonathan Bartley will be on sometime after 07.45 - or 'listen again' online.
