Bishop Broadbent Gives The Royal Engagement The Bird

Reverend Pete Broadbent, the Bishop of Willesden, is giving Prince William and Kate Middleton the smack down. After their engagement announcement last week, he took to Facebook to post some angry rants. Everyone really is on Facebook, huh? But I digress. His choice commentary after the jump.

“I think we need a party in Calais for all good republicans who can’t stand the nauseating tosh that surrounds this event. I managed to avoid the last disaster in slow motion between Big Ears and the Porcelain Doll, and hope to avoid this one too … I wish them well, but their nuptials are nothing to do with me. Leave them to get married somewhere out of the limelight and leave them alone … I give the marriage seven years.”

Somebody certainly is a grumpy for being a man of God, but I remain impressed with his use of the term “nauseating tosh.” I’m stealing that. Also, “Big Ears” and “the Porcelain Doll”? Gutsy. I think this guy’s true calling is as a blogger. [Telegraph]
