BBC Has this story about Tony Blair's former private secretary.
Vatican ambassador in warning over Pope visit protests
While he makes fair comments - I have to wonder if it is his place as a British Civil Servant to make comments like this. He is supposed to be a link between the British Government and the Vatican - not the other way round !
Blair lifted Catholic ban for 'Our Man In The Vatican'
From the first link:In 1917 the Foreign Office issued a memorandum saying that Britain's representative at the Vatican "should not be filled with unreasoning awe of the Pope," and the post had been filled by a non-Catholic until Mr Campbell's appointment.
The Rathfrliand native also played down reports that the visit has failed to attract much interest from Irish Catholics.
"First I would say that this is an ecclesiastical visit to Britain - the Churches of Scotland and England and Wales - so the fact that there is little interest or uptake from Ireland is not new.
It certainly strikes me that Mr Campbell in the first article sounds more like a vatican spokesman than a British Civil Servant.
