The civil service can relax. An official delegation from The Vatican arrived in London today in a black Limo with tinted windows. The vehicle contained some chappies from Italia, in dark suits and ray-bans. Who looked a bit intimidating.
It's understood that the 'Goodfellas' entered the MI6 building by the river, and after reassuring a bunch of spies that they weren't here to adjust anybody's health, they issued a short written statement.
The gist of the message appeared to be that 'Benny' wasn't in the least upset about the leaked memo, and that he nearly choked on his espresso.
Those close to the Pope say that despite his occasional dour and serious demeanour, there's a stand-up comedian bursting to get out. Apparently the Pope reads TheSpoof.com first thing every morning - to keep abreast of last week's world events - and he's a big fan of Fergus McCarthy. He is also reported to enjoy the writings of Monkey Woods, but lamented that the Dirty Ape hasn't been as prolific as he used to be. Especially since Hull City sacked Phil Brown.
Also mentioned in despatches were a veritable who's who of the Spoofing elite.
But their names appeared to have temporarily eluded him.
More as we get it...oops....sorry...
Look out for the sparks. They will fly.
