Whitehall to the Pope: How to Score Points with Britons

Britain's Foreign Office has a problem on its hands. Somebody leaked an internal memo by junior staffers suggesting how the Pope could use his upcoming visit to the UK to improve his image.

The suggestions included:

- opening an abortion clinic
- blessing a gay marriage, or
- launching a range of branded condoms

The ministry condemned the memo as "ill-judged, naive and disrespectful" and has sent an apology to the Institute of Kid Diddling, er, the Vatican. The sassy culprit has been transferred "to other duties." Yeah, right.
