Make the Pope pay

We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister to ask the Catholic Church to pay for the proposed visit of the Pope to the UK and relieve the taxpayer of the estimated £20 million cost. We accept the right of the Pope to visit his followers in Britain, but public money would be better spent on hard-pressed schools, hospitals and social services which are facing cuts.

Sign the petition.

My sister always gets me good presents. For my birthday pie bought me a mini wormery, which arrived this morning. I was feeling bad about the amount of perfectly good compostable material I was throwing out. Now I can use it to make liquid super compost.
