Pope John Paul II

<t>mdubuque: Spanish cardinals (remember who brought us the Inquisition?) Just as a point of accuracy: Pope Gregory IX formed the Inquisitio Haereticae Pravitatis, the Office of the Inquisitor in 1233. The inquisitor (who was of the Dominican Order) was answerable only to the Pope, and it was Gregor...

Don't the anarchists get it?

An interesting perspective. It is nevertheless a privatized form and therefore they should be attacking the government as a priority, not corporations (if they adhere to their supposed beliefs).Quite simply they are wrong, they are extreme socialists. There's a word for that.

Charles & Camilla to marry

<t>On the medals thing. At least Charles isn't near Third World Dictator levels of medals.What he wear's is in-line with who he is. The person of the Prince of Wales is always an ADC to the Queen (I think that explains the yellow thing - I'm thinking Lance Brown, Chris Patten's ADC when he was the H...

Oil Traders vs. Greenpeace activists?

Lemonade and Trappist Beer

<t>Lemomade has many different meanings depending where you are. In the US I believe it means bland I-made-this-on-my stand kind of thing. A bit like US cider to be frank (although you can find reasonable cider from Vermont - I think it's called Woodchuck or something...). The best UK lemonade must ...

Burgers

My usual order on the few times I enter McDonalds is about £6 for Happy Meal (Large Fries, Large Coke & Double Cheese Burger), 2 Apple Pies & 6 McNuggets. I think it's £3 for a vanilla happy meal...

Charles & Camilla to marry

<t>I agree with all except the manner of making her Consort, which is really the point I was making. Back in the Edward VIII days, Baldwin stated on constitutional advice that a "King's wife is Queen", a noted difference to the precedant of a Queen's husband not necessarily being King. Therefore Cha...

Charles & Camilla to marry

<t>I wonder if Camilla being granted Pricess Consort (modelled on Prince Albert no doubt) instead of Queen on Charles assuming the throne as King requires legislative changes in the UK, Australia, New Zealand etc.? Looks distinclty like a mole's been at work because the press release has been disorg...

House Arrest? Use the SBAs.

<t>Oh, and LP, your current icon with that pipe reminds me of Anthony Wedgewood Benn from many years ago Ah Benn, nooo. It's meant to be a City Gent, which post-60s you never really see. I've only ever seen two and that was around the Royal Courts of Justice - fully bowler-hatted and laden with book...
