    The joy that would fill my heart if this was to come to fruition. Though to be fair, the Pope mobile is undefeated, so it's no easy task.

    Oh this would be quite beautiful. I hope they can pull it off, I really really do.

    Richard

    I've read a little about this and it is interesting, and according to some UK officials it is well within possible and under serious consideration, Richard has had nothing to do with the stories I've read about but I'm sure we would support it and it may just have been an oversight not to mention Richard in those articles. I don't have an opinion really but I have found it interesting.

    We could petition the CPS, Robertson's chambers or Stephen's office to show some support for this. Cases like this can be swayed into action by public interest.

    I do too. It's unlikely, but would be fair.

    They should form an orderly queue: Blair first, then Straw, then Hoon, then the Pope.

    Still too many Catholic votes to lose in next month's election. Should happen, won't happen.

    Nothing to do with politics - and it wont happen till September long after the election.

    Part of me would enjoy a car chase between a 1.6 Diesel Astra from the Met, and the Popemobile.

    If its that late, then it won't affect the election but I disagree about it not being political. The attempted or threatened arrest of such a major figure will certainly have political ramifications even if the politicians are not, and should not be, involved.

    So all this advanced intellectual secularism from Darwin's Rottweiler and his atheist chum, Hitchens, prompt them to notifying everyone in advance? Good. The Papal Guard can be extra wary of these nuts when His Holiness visits the empire...

    Papal Guard vs. The Met. The Met wins, hands down.

    And who is protecting the children from priests? Not "His Holiness", obviously.

    Definitely. I hope it happens. What these people have done is insane. They need to be brought to justice, not excused because of religion. Anyone else involved in this kind of cover up would have been in prison years ago.

    Can I ask why you think it's nuts to seek justice?

    Right on buddy, hey could be worse. Could be pretending to be the voice of the invisible man indoctrinating men into celibacy and the care over children whilst covering up, or in the least, turning a blind eye to any number of sordid indiscretions.

    I mean that, that would really be 'nutty'. Almost as nutty as thinking a man like that is above the law...

    Maybe the Swiss would be willing to let him stay with Mr Polanski.

    Not saying there is. But to say that every republican condones such behavior? Yeah ItN is pushing it this time. But not all of us think it's ok. In fact, it may interest you to know that I do not consider Roman Catholicism to be Christian, but in fact, a cult.

    (IOKTGIYL- It's ok to generalize if you're liberal)

    Fair enough. But we've seen far too much of this kind of thing excused by the right. You have to admit that.
