Prayer for England

O Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and our most gentle Queen and Mother, look down in mercy upon England thy Dowry and upon us all who greatly hope and trust in thee. By thee it was that Jesus our Saviour and our hope was given unto the world; and He has given thee to us that we might hope still more. Plead for us thy children, whom thou didst receive and accept at the foot of the cross. O sorrowful Mother, intercede for our separated brethren, that with us in the one true fold they may be united to the supreme Shepherd, the Vicar of thy Son. Pray for us all, dear Mother, that by faith fruitful in good works we may all deserve to see and praise God, together with thee, in our heavenly home. Amen.

Help Me to Meet the Prime Minister

Well, in light of recent news, I'm starting a new fundraising campaign. I'm trying to raise enough money to gain access to David Cameron. The hope is that if I raise enough money, I'll be able to donate to the Conservative Party and get to eat dinner with the Prime Minister. Over dinner, we can talk frankly about 'gay marriage'.

All I need is £250,000, though I'll need a little more to cover my train fare up to London. So far I have raised enough to take Mr Cameron out for lunch at a pub for burger and chips. I know this will work. Help me to influence Government policy by helping me to raise £250,000 to have dinner with the PM. There is an outside chance that Stonewall paid more, so we should aim for £500,000.

If it's gay marriage you want to talk about, I'd go for Clegg. He might even tell you who wrote the paper which persuaded the No. 10 policy unit to go for it. He'd be cheaper, too.
Looking at his guest list that's where I'd be inclined to put my money.

You really must update your price list! It now costs "only" £50,000 for lunch with Cameron, THEN add additional £250,000 to the Conservative Party. I could throw a party for much less than that! But probably best (morally and financially) to throw out at next election

There's definitely something dodgy going on with this consultation, but what is it?. I can't help thinking that Lynne Featherstone looks like the sort of political lightweight that can be thrown to the wolves if it all starts going wrong. Whoever's set it all up seems to me to be thinking in advance. But as Fr Z says in this politically incorrect prayer:

"Crush, O Lord, we beseech Thee, the pride of our enemies: and prostrate their arrogance by the might of Thy right hand. Through our Lord."

I wish that I had thought of that idea first, Laurence. Well done for writing a witty, succinct post.

And as you say EFpastor emeritus, it now "only" £50,000 for lunch with Cameron. You could buy a house in recession ruined Ireland for that.

Heh. Cameron and Clegg? Why eat with peasants? I gather you can weasel your way in to one of the Queen's garden parties if you chalk up enough do-gooder brownie points somewhere. She'll even spring for cakes and goodies. Maybe you'll be in luck and Cameron will be there too, and you can manoeuver him into the lake behind Buck House. Say 'hey' for me.
