Weird old man in dress gets British foreign aid.

United Kingdom:

MPs have asked ministers to explain why £1.85m ($3m) from the international development budget was spent on the Pope's UK visit in September....

Committee chairman Malcolm Bruce said ministers should explain what the money was spent on and how it tallies with our commitments on overseas aid.

So, a demented old man, in charge of the biggest, and richest group of followers of Bronze-Age goatherders' myths gets British Government aid.

Apparently at the expense of the poor in the third world.

How like the dearly beloved [not ] "Mother" Theresa!

Madwoman from Grantham had secret meetings with “Mystic”

United Kingdom: We always thought Baroness Thatcher was (and is) completely potty! This article from the Daily Torygraph seems to confirm the worst.

The question then arises, I suppose, which is (or was) worse, an openly receptive person to religious quackery, or one who keeps quiet about it?

Oh, dearie, dearie me.

GT.
