Susan Boyle - for those who judge by appearances
Susan Boyle came onto the stage of 'Britain's Got Talent' after announcing to the world that she had 'never been married' and 'never been kissed'. Her previous singing experience was limited to the church choir and karaoke. The audience laughed and the judges shook their heads in disbelief as she said she would like to be as successful as Elaine Paige.
Susan Boyle turned mockery into awe and laughter into tears. Piers Morgan described her as stunning and 'the biggest surprise in three years on the show' while Simon Cowell said she could go back home and with her head held high.
Miss Boyle now has her own fan site. Cranmer is not usually disposed to posting on such trivial matters, but just occasionally there comes an inspirational incarnation which humiliates the arrogant, challenges the self-righteous and humbles the proud.
His Grace awaits the one who will do the same to Gordon Brown.
