← Diplomat disciplined over Pope memo is named

This interests me..."Papal aides believe the Government’s choice of non-Catholic staff typifies the “lack of respect” being shown towards the first ever state visit by a Pontiff"

So... HMG has to assign catholics to the papal visit team to show sufficient respect to Benedict. That is frankly outrageous. The overblown sense of entitlement really is breathtaking.

I wonder if the Israelis or Jordanians put catholic only staff on the case when The Pope visited their countries? Clearly, a visit to Saudi Arabia is out of the question.

Three cheers to Anjoum Noorani. Get him on the after-dinner speaking circuit
