Outrage in UK over Foreign Office memo

Lately, when I feel depressed about the fallout from the sex-abuse scandal, I consult Damian Thompson’s blog in the London Telegraph. He is the editor of Telegraph blogs (there are a zillion of them) and seems to inhabit the intersection of blog and obloquy. The Church Times once described him as a “blood-crazed ferret”. Anyhow, I enjoyed his characteristically caustic comment on the outrageous memo which circulated in the UK Foreign Office about the visit of the Pope in September.
