Factual spottin g for Guy Fawkes FJ HANCOCK is quite right

to point out that Guy Fawkes was not executed in 1625 and that Latimer and Ridley weren't Catholic martyrs. I did not write the picture captions which included these errors.

I did say that the Catholic James U was a disastrous King and he left a particularly unpleasant legacy for his Catholic subjects.

I would have thought that was self evident but then of course, nothing in history is. I did smile at the proposal that James II was the most popular Supreme Governor that the Church of England ever had.

Perhaps Prince Charles's conversion to Catholicism is just what the Church of England needs!
