Woman NOT elected

So reads one of the pieces just published on Thinking Anglicans!
Isn't it nice to see women making the headlines in this way?
Here is a summary of the state of play in the UK so far :

Women have been allowed to become bishops in the Scottish Episcopal Church since 2003 but Dr Peden, who is married with three children, was the first to be shortlisted.

The Church of England is debating the conditions under which to permit women bishops - but is facing fresh delays.

The Church in Wales voted against women bishops in April 2008.

The Church of Ireland allows the ordination of female bishops but no women have been appointed

Speaks for itself, really, doesn't it!
