Fortunately for me, Grandmère Mimi was paying attention:
Jonathan, could the amendment that passed not be as bad as you say? See The Lead. Lorna Ashworth's amendment was defeated. Seems to me that the amendment that passed simply acknowledges that ACNA wants to be part of the Anglican Communion. OCICBW.
Which, of course, she usually is. But every clock has to be right at least once a day (or twice a day, in Mimi's case, as she's one of those old fashioned clocks that need winding up regularly).
However, I was right about one thing. I am still the most embarrassed person in the world at this moment in time. But it's because of my own stupidity rather than somebody else's.
