Idea of the Week

Dastardly duo Dawkins and Hitchins are looking into the idea of having the pope arrested for covering up child abuse during his upcoming visit to Britain. It would appear that it all comes down to the issue of whether he should receive diplomatic immunity (a notion which I find quite repugnant in many ways, surely political leaders should be held to more account than the rest of us, not less). I suspect they will find a way round it but it would be awesome (a) if the pope was arrested and (b) if the trip was cancelled because of the risk.
