Well well. Pope Benedict has gone off on another politically delicate trip without having sacked that walking, talking leg-hold trap he employs as a media spokesman.

I expect the headlines over the next few days will be very interesting. It doesn't seem to matter now what the Pope actually says, as long as he's got his perfidious faithful Lombardi with him, I'm sure it will be an exciting week.

The media is certainly starting off on the right note:
