How about paying for your own holidays Your Holiness?

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

The cost of the Pope’s visit to England and Scotland is going up to £12m, not including the as-yet unspecified cost of policing.

Some of the cost is being paid by the Catholic church but the rest is being stumped up by the British government out of English taxes. The country is broke, England is facing billions of pounds of budget cuts yet the British government agrees to spend millions for the head of a paedophile ring to spend a few days here.

I object to my taxes being wasted on the Pope’s visit.  If he wants to come here then let him pay for it himself.  If the Vatican doesn’t have the cash to pay for it then they could always call Ocean Finance and take out a mortgage on one of the Pope’s palaces.

    Perhaps we should start a campaign for an arrest warrant to be issued against the Pope for the Catholic’s church part in the cover up of child sex offences?

    Is it me, or does His Holiness look a bit too much like Emperor Palpatine for comfort?
