This was a day much like any other day lately where :
-Libya descended into civil war, joining the rest of the Middle East in a dramatic uprising of the people
-The UK government were punched black and blue over a failure to get UK nationals out of danger and home from Libya quickly enough
-The GDP figures that so shocked the "experts" were revised down still further to -0.6% from -0.5%
-New Zealand is reeling from a terrible earthquake
-Ireland went to the polls to cast judgement on a government that has presided over the destruction of their economy
-The NHS, Welfare System, Schools, Libraries, Hospices, Legal Aid, Justice, Policing, Prisons, Universities and anything else I forgot to list were under attack (just like every day since May 11th)
Given all of that, I suppose it's not surprising that a challenge to the very heart of Catholicism might be squeezed out.
Still, thank goodness time was found to report on Ms Kate Middleton's first Royal Engagement eh?
Apparently she was :
"picture-perfect as she stepped out with Prince William for their first official royal engagement.... Kate donned a chocolate-trimmed camel coat, with matching tights and black ankle boots, all topped off with a gorgeous fascinator by Philip Treacy, the man she's asked to create headwear for the royal wedding party."It's a mad old world at the moment eh?
