Two more against the Covenant

The gossip today is that both Derby and Gloucester Dioceses have voted against the Covenant.

That would make it 4 for, 6 against. It's still early days but it's clearly not going to be a walk-over for fans of the Covenant.

More news as it becomes clear.

Added later: 

Figures from Derby:
Bishops:  For 0; Against 1. (I don't know if that was Alastair Redfern, the Diocesan.)
Clergy:    For 1; Against 21; Abstained 2
Laity:       For 2; Against 24; Abstained 1
