I think he says it all.
Apparently the five 'plotters' arrested on suspicion of papal potshot planning were actually arrested because they made a joke in the canteen at work about shooting the Pope. What?
That's not big enough.
Which nation is it that I live in again? When did a bad joke become grounds for an arrest? I'm pretty sure now that this whole thing's because someone in the police felt the need to either find or invent an assassination attempt to foil heroically, so they'd look shit-hot on security. More on this as it develops.
