As a group of leading Anglicans gather in Jerusalem to debate their quarrels with another leading Anglicans, the world looks on with a combination of mild amazement and disinterest, one imagines. The whole thing is deeply bizarre, unless you inhabit a particular strange corner of the universe. Anyway, Anthony Barnett kindly prompted me about this earlier today on behalf of openDemocracy's 'Our Kingdom' project, and the result is When Jerusalem turns to Little England, bringing William Blake into the picture. It will be the first of a number of pieces connected with the new book I've edited, Fear or Freedom? Just to warn you! [Picture (c) the Blake archive]
