Abp. of Canterbury Blasts Reforms in Britain; Says Reforms Proposed by PM Cameron Lack Support

The Ecumenical News International website reports today (June 11, 2011) that the Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, this week criticized the recent economic, criminal justice, and healthcare reforms proposed by British Prime Minister David Cameron.

Williams -- launching his attack as guest editor of The New Statesman weekly journal -- said Britain's coalition government is forcing through "radical policies for which no one voted."

He questioned whether democratic legitimacy existed for flagship policies on welfare, health, and education, which he said were causing "anxiety and anger."

He also condemned what he described as punitive action against alleged abuses of the benefit system.
