Breaking news on BBC New24. Just confirmed in the last few minutes.
Very few details…. Last night, Tony Blair converted to Catholism
Why is this news? Who cares? Why is the BBC treating this like it’s
the biggest news item of the year? Why have they rolled out Anne
Widdecomme to do a phone interview? His wife is a catholic, his children
are catholic, it’s been on the cards for a while. He isn’t in power any
more. It remains to be seen if he has any relevance any more. So why
does it matter what denomination he is.
