Letter to The Editor - There is a mystery surrounding this archbishop

To The Australian         Criticisms of British PM Boris Johnson by the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Most Reverend Justin Welby, should be taken with a large grain of salt ("Johnson 'pouring petrol on division'", 28/10). Archbishop Welby has a track record of favouring the contemporary, pro-Remain elite culture in the UK that is supported by the benighted left but opposed by advocates for Brexit. As an Australian Anglican, I do not have confidence in his political views. Moreover, the language used by Johnson, which he attacks, has been more than matched by that of commentators on the left. There is a mystery surrounding this archbishop that is comparable to that surrounding French leader Emmanuel Macron. Each, as it were, appeared from nowhere and rose to a great height with astonishing speed. A book on how they achieved their success and what they really stand for might be very interesting.
