Pope In Appoints Alastair Campbell Shock

How's this for a bit of spin?
In the sermon at his inauguration Mass in a packed St Peter's Square, the Pope said: "Let us do all we can to pursue the path toward the unity".
According to the editor of the Catholic Herald:
The accession of Benedict XVI has tremendous implications for the English Catholic Church: for its bossy, politically correct bureaucracy; for the ceremonial at Sunday Mass; for relations with the Church of England (as of Tuesday, dead as a doornail); for how long the 72-year-old Cardinal Murphy-O'Connor lasts as Archbishop of Westminster - and who succeeds him in the post.
