Scotland's No

It's another No to the Anglican Communion Covenant within Britain. The Scottish Episcopal Church overwhelmingly (112 to 6) rejected the Covenant at its General Synod, in that it threatened its independence and was against the Anglican Communion in how it involves relationships betwen its Churches. It was a document and idea seen as unnecessary and unwanted. Now this may take several years to come to the notice of those bureaucrats favourable to the Covenant: they have yet to hear that the Church of England failed to endorse it which, in terms of a yes or no - either you have agreed to it or you haven't - the Church of England said no. Someone in Scotland called it a blancmange with shards of glass in it.
