That wretched Tablet is at it again, it appears to be to pitching Archbishop Nichols againts the Pope. Fr Z does one of his critiques of the editorial, as does this article here. The editorial is the normal yawningly inept tosh, rightly ridiculed elsewhere. I wonder what influence the Archbishop could bring to repace the editor, who presumably wrote the editorial.
However, the real story is most probably to found here, in another Tablet article. I suspect that this is what my visitor was referring to here.
Now is the time for unity not factionalism!
