It’s just been announced that Bishop Malcolm McMahon of Nottingham is the new Archbishop of Liverpool.

Last night in a conversation I mooted that three people would have to prove their untrustworthiness by Tweeting at approximately 11.00.01 their congratulations to the new archbishop elect.  My phone has just gone ‘ping’ with the following three texts

“It is McMahon, you were right about the tweeters”

“all three, inc the blog”

“Are you psychic?  all three did it, one of them before an official announcement got out”

As Church we should be able to know who to trust with information.  If you want to show off your knowledge, there’s always a pub quiz somewhere.
