ABC

Geoffrey Fisher, the Archbishop of Canterbury, who crowned the present Queen, said this to Harold Macmillan about the possibility of Michael Ramsey succeeding him as ABC: 

“I have come to give you some advice about my successor. Whoever you choose, under no account must it be Michael Ramsey, the Archbishop of York. Dr Ramsey is a theologian, a scholar and a man of prayer. Therefore, he is entirely unsuitable as Archbishop of Canterbury.”
