Can we have a royal-free, Pope-free day please?

It is bad enough that we have to suffer Popes and Princesses, as if most care for either and their outdated institutions, but must we have this level of obsequiousness for both?

.

First the Pope resigns and we have the BBC (and others) going into overdrive to celebrate this peddler of mediaeval morals swiftly followed by Hilary Mantel’s criticisms raising the Duchess of Cambridge’s newsworthiness yet again (is it even possible to have a Kate free day?).

If I hear Nicholas Witchell or Norman St John-Stevas, Baron St John of Fawning with one more slavishly respectful, pitiful prattle session about a religious or royal personage I will scream (I will!)
