Blair's Not Alone
Henry VIII must be rolling in his crypt. A story in the Sydney Morning Herald reports that Roman Catholics have reclaimed their spot as the dominant faith in England.

More people are now attending Mass every Sunday than are worshipping with the Church of England, confirming that the established church has lost its spot as the most popular Christian denomination after more than four centuries of unrivalled influence following the Reformation.
Leading figures warned on Saturday that the Church of England faced becoming a minority faith and that the findings should act as a wake-up call.
