The Midlands Prepares To Assassinate The Pope

by | 11th, March 2010

THE Pope is heading to the Midlands – to Coventry and Birmingham – and the local security bosses are ready for him to be shot or assassinated in some other way.

As reader Yampster writes: “They sound as if they are looking forward to it.”

The Sunday Mercury reports:

“Security bosses at Birmingham City Hospital have revealed they would deal with any assassination attempt because of their expertise in dealing with bullet injuries because of gang crime.”

Says Yampster:

It makes you feel proud. Note that the West Midland Police are not claiming any similar expertise in putting a stop to it.

I hope the Pope gives Cardinal Newman his halo while he’s in Brum as it means my late friend Gerry Tracey will not have completely wasted his many years of research at the Oratory

In the news, Peter Finch, head of security at City Hospital in Winson Green, is ready for a shot Pope.

“The Pope is royalty. We have had two assassination attempts on Popes in the past four or five years. He is a real target. If anything happens to him, we will have hundreds of press camped outside the hospital and that is before the Catholics turn up.”

Catholics – like, the, er, Pope…
