Why bother with second fiddle when first pays better?
There is a most unfortunate myth in the Anglican Communion that the top job is the position of Archbishop of Canterbury (even though, we hasten to add, this is not an equivalent job to that of the Pope and nothing will change about that even if the Anglican Covenant is passed). No, the top job lies across the briny sea, in New York. And, as you can see from our intrepid reporter David Virtue, who conveys the report of another journalist, the top job pays rather better than a humble clergyperson anywhere else in the world is paid. I am prepared to bet my last sovereign and nickel that it pays better than the ABC's job.
