image for Rival Archbishop In Leadership Challenge
Not the Archbishop of York

The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, faced up to more problems this morning when, after his recent championing of Sharia Law, his future leadership of the Church of England came under threat from a rival Archbishop.

John Tucker Mugabi Sentamu, the Right Reverend Archbishop of York, threw his hat into the ring as dozens of other Archbishops sensed Dr Rowan Williams, the present incumbent, could be about to 'fall on his sword', after his ridiculous Sharia spoutings this week.

Mr Sentamu, who is a distant relative of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Robert Mugabe and, having been born in Uganda, was a friend of Idi Amin, became the Archbishop of York in 2005, knows a thing or two, and has plenty of experience in 'godly matters'.

Mr Sentamu had a very successful 2007, when he was awarded an Honorary Degree by Virginia Bottomley, the Chancellor of the University of Hull, and was then voted Yorkshireman of the Year by the Black Sheep Brewery. At both awards, he entertained a crowd of thousands by expertly playing his own special rendition of the Brighouse & Rastrick Brass Band piece Floral Dance on the African Drums.

The one fault that Mr Sentamu has, is that he has a front tooth missing, and looks like he might have lost it fighting, never a good example to set for one so reverend.
