it's called 'being challenging and confrontational' and 'asking awkward questions' - if you ask me perhaps if they'd spent a little time performing catholic social action rather than theorising about it the country and the book might have been in better conditions.

I was delighted to see that among the comments on Damian Thompson's blog is one from someone called Dorothea ffoulkes-Corbett.
