: Just caught this as a throw away remark on an English program on TV the other night. Sorry can't even offer any context for it. But is does sound interesting.

: Any ideas what is meant ?

Probably refers to comments made by PM Thatcher to, or about, the incumbent of Lambeth Palace - they attended Oxford at about the same time.
