Has +Pete Been Suspended?

According to Cranmer, +Pete Broadbent of Willesdon has been suspended from his public ministry as a suffragan bishop in the Diocese of London. But in the same post Cranmer notes that +Pete says he has not been suspended. We shall see. I find it extraordinary that a bishop of the C of E could be so naive as to (1) think that Tweets and Facebook comments would not be public, and (2) make deprecatory remarks out of sorts with his vows and obligations as a bishop of the established church.
