These remarks from Baroness Warsi are an embarrassment. It is not just the jejeune language she hopes will:
'ring out beyond the Vatican walls',
it is the incomprehension displayed with such artlessness:
'It seems astonishing to me that those who wrote the European Constitution made no mention of God or Christianity.'
and the arrogance in all its ignorance:
'I will be arguing for Europe to become more confident and more comfortable in its Christianity.'
She will lead a rag tag and bobtail delegation of junior and peripheral ministers which will be shepherded by the Archbishop of Westminster. She goes to discuss the importance of faith
with the former Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith - an office he held for quarter of a century; an office formerly known as Grand Inquisitor of the Inquisition.
Let us hope he doesn't have her put through her paces but gives her the comfy chair, with a cushion.
