I must confess that my first reaction to the calls by Fatty O’Barrel and Christopher Poodle to breach the sanctity of the confessional was to consider them an attack on Catholicism and to call for a Jihad – or is it a Crusade – against them. Rather than a Fatwa all right-thinking people should call down a Fathead upon them promising that anyone who could do them an injury should have unlimited access to any number of television bimbos, male/female whatever.
However, in the interest of fairness and justice, I have reconsidered. Perhaps we should widen the requirements for disclosure. We should cover all porkies told in parliament to justify ripping sustenance from poor defenceless children to enable the further subsidy of rich mates. The latter being a particularly nasty form of child abuse.
Then it occurred to me that we are all priests at the altar of a fair and just democracy. Consequently we should demand that anyone (not just priests of religion) who witnesses the political porkies that allow the greedy to manipulate democracy for their own financial benefit should immediately report such behaviour under pain of legal sanction.
Wonder if Fatty and the Poodle have thought of that?
