So, Justin Welby is coming to the aid of the little man, the downtrodden, the unemployed and the stoney broke. He says he has told payday loan company Wonga's founder, Errol Damelin: "We're not in the business of trying to legislate you out of existence, we're trying to compete you out of existence." Evidently he is going to achieve this by setting up credit unions.
Well, it's so nice to know that he has such love for the poor.
The only problem is that he hasn't. This is just typical Welby. He says the right thing in order to manipulate the public's perception of him. But it is only words. In truth he wouldn't lift a finger to help the poor if there wasn't profit in it for himself. How do I know this? I know this because he could have helped me back into employment but he decided, instead, to be the Big Bishop I Am, put up obstacles in my way and accuse me of deception even though these accusations were purely the invention of his paranoid mind.
Ah well, it's all business. With a bit of luck the poor will get a bit of respite as an accidental result of the Archbishop's politicking. But it will be of no use to me. Thanks to Welby, Wharton et al, I couldn't even get credit with a loan shark let alone an Anglican credit union. I have no future thanks to these superannuated hypocrites which means I would never be able to pay anything back.
