Foreign Office apologises for Pope 'condom' memo

He he..
The Foreign Office has apologised for a "foolish" document which suggested the Pope's visit to the UK could be marked by the launch of "Benedict" condoms.

Oh, I wish they hadn't apologised!!!

I hope everybody that civil servant knows, and a lot more s/he doesn't, writes to him/her to say well done.

I love the irony of just moving whoever it was to a different department . . . :pointlaugh: :hilarity:

That was the joke going round facebook yesterday - That it'd be so ironic if the Pope refuses to come and visit because the civil servant only got moved to a different department.
