THE Archbishop of Canterbury has been criticised for suggesting that Boris Johnson and MPs were ‘pouring petrol’ on divisions in the country with their Brexit rhetoric.
The Most Reverend Justin Welby said it was ‘extraordinarily dangerous for politicians to use careless comments’ in the current climate.
Mark Francois, deputy chairman of the European Research Group, said: ‘The Archbishop is sounding increasingly like a frustrated politician so perhaps he should abandon his pulpit and stand for election.’
