Pope withdraws from UK at last minute

Pope Benedict XVI last night pulled out of the UK ‘just in time’, leaving both himself and the nation’s Catholics in a state of high excitement.

‘He chose exactly the right moment to withdraw from Britain,’ said a Vatican spokesman. ‘If His Holiness had stayed in too long, then things could have got complicated a little further down the road. The pontiff was clearly a little hot under the dog collar from all the attention he had been getting, and for everyone’s protection he thought it safest to step back from the brink.’

It is understood that future papal visits to the UK will be scheduled according to a little-understood rhythm method, though many believe that abstinence may be the safest option.
