Iain McLean FBA, Professor of Politics at Oxford University and author of What's Wrong with the British Constitution? highlights inconsistencies in the arguments of the bishops in the recent votes on amendments to the Equality Bill.

The bishops' highly publicised defence of discrimination in the Equality bill damages the image of the church, says Savi Hensman. Their political victory in the House of Lords this week is a moral and spiritual defeat.
