Bishop bashing in Bedfordshire

I fear that someone with a sense of humour may have been writing for the Bedfordshire on Sunday this week. Under the unlikely headline Bishop of Bedford bashing world poverty the article explains:

Bishop Richard took up one end of a rope with members of the Bedford Athletic rugby team on the other. He was the lone ‘tugger’ against the combined forces of the rugby players.

I suppose we just should be grateful the rugby team weren’t bashing the bishop while he tugged alone on his end of the rope. You’ll have to read the article for the whole story, which is entirely innocent and in fact all in a very good cause.
