Women Bishops and the Apostolic Consititution

Earlier in the year I was interviewed, along with other Christians in Sevenoaks, by a BBC online reporter about the controversies surrounding the consecration of women bishops. The same reporter has now done a follow-up piece in the wake of two recent developments in this discussion, the report of the Revision committee looking at the legislation which would be needed for women to be bishops, and the Pope's offer (the Apostolic Constitution) to create an "ordinariate" for Anglicans wishing to become Roman Catholic but keep elements of their Anglican heritage.
The follow up report is here, in case you are interested.
