Phrase of the week: St Bartholomew's is not a personal fiefdom

I love it when someone says something witty, even better when its memorable. Amidst the great row swirling around 'the' service at St Bartholomew's in London, a (robust, take no prisoners) letter from Bishop Richard Chartres to the offending vicar proffers the following phrase,

'St Bartholomew's is not a personal fiefdom.'

Excellent. And not only of St Bartholomew's could this phrase be used. Next time your minister gets a bit uppity just substitute the name of your church and the phrase is yours to use as a tool to nip that uppityness in the bud.
