"Yes We Vati-can!"

When I saw this in The Metro last week, I initially assumed it was a spoof, but it is actually a gloriously tasteless genuine advertisement:

Humour? This is serious business. :)

James Higham is right (never thought I'd be typing those words). The Prophecy of the Popes claims that the last Pope will be "Peter the Roman". Peter Turkson also wrote a paper arguing for a global bank and financial system, a major part of the Book of Revelations. Apocalypse Now, my friends.

RA, come off it, JH left a perfectly amiable comment and you lay into him. Let's try and play fair here.

Richard Allan said...

Yeah, you're right Mark, this isn't the forum for it. My apologies.

Tine for some defenestration , a good guy normally but his guard has slipped here.

RA, ta for coming back.

Vf, I left a fairly strident comment yesterday, Redwood actually responded. With possibly the most feeble argument ever (in other words a lie or an irrelevance), digging himself a few inches deeper.

B, Redwood claimed that "in many parts of London, a 2-bed flat costs more than £2 million" and I pointed out that even in Mayfair, you can buy 2-bed flats for less than £2 million.

Redwood's counter-comment was "There are other expensive areas such as Chelsea, St Johns Wood and Notting Hill" or something like that. That's not a KLN, that is a lie by inference - in those places, you can snap up 2-bed flats for less than £1 million I believe.
