Oh Happy Day...!

I remember watching this episode of Newsnight on the evening of the election of Pope Benedict XVI...


Christina Odone got told!

Twitch of the mantilla to Ches of The Sensible Bond for reminding me of her name so I could find the clip on You Tube!

She truly got told off, but she was truly rude!!

"You labour under a misapprehension that a change in pontificate can change policy...these are teachings of the Church, teachings of the Church. They are not going to change; they never were going to change!" Well done, Father!

And then Jeremy Paxman ways in, bless 'im! "Surely you can't have a debate if the principles are non-negotiable..." and we see her for what she is, viz., "all the principles are negotiable".

I never saw this at the time, but I am quite disgusted by her tone.

Classic video, Mac. Thanks!

I can't see her feeling at home on The Catholic Herald now! Great clip. Thanks.

What a load of rubbish she talked! I wonder whether she's changed her tune since?

And she's still talking rubbish. I found a thing in a recent Catholic Herald where she was upset she didn't get let into a conference or something.
