The Bishops of the Established Church have to meet particularly large expectations in national and civic life, over and above their heavy ecclesiastical duties. In relation to the demands upon them and compared with other major players in public life, the logistical and staff support they receive is in my view slender, often barely adequate. If anybody were to become a bishop hoping for a comfortable life, they'd be in for a nasty shock.
