November 20 2017 – An Open Letter to William Nye and the National Safeguarding Steering Group [NSSG] and National Safeguarding Panel [NSP] – Church of England

Press-Release
 
I have been moved to write after reading the Church Times letter this week by Ruth Hildebrandt Grayson – the daughter of Franz Hildebrandt who was, as you know, a great friend of George Bell, Bishop of Chichester:
I was appalled to read the Revd Tom Brazier’s assertion that we “do no further harm” to anyone, if we happen to ruin the reputation of a deceased person against whom allegations of abuse have been made by apologising to the complainant (Letters, 10 November)…I am sure none of us would endorse the statement that “no further harm” has been done to the reputation and legacy of one of the country’s greatest Bishops. I would suggest that Mr Brazier visit Chichester and find out for himself just how much harm has been done
Today, Monday, two days after the Chichester Diocesan Synod in Lewes – and wanting to help rather than harm – may I urge you please to bring forward the release date of the Carlile Review on Bishop Bell.
 
Yours sincerely
