European Council searches on 'Van Rompuy Gollum'

His Grace gets lots of visitors (now in excess of 60,000 a month), and they all leave a footprint. He has them from Westminster, from the White House, from CCHQ, Labour HQ, the BBC, the European Parliament, journals, newspapers and an endless stream of universities.

Today he had a special one from the Council of the European Union (and yes, His Grace is fully aware that the European Council and the Council of the European Union are not the same entity, but he had to fit it in a headline, and 99.9 per cent of people do not know the difference anyway).

The visitor was doing a search on 'Van Rompuy Gollum'.

And thereby they discovered Cranmer's august blog of intelligent and erudite comment upon matters religio-political.


If it was His Excellency the President himself in a moment of cyber vanity, His Grace hopes that he left suitably enlightened theologically as well as to the physical similarity he shares with Gollum. If he is still in any doubt, here is another:

Separated at birth.

Good grief! The likeness is uncanny, my precious. I mean, your Grace.

I recall in 1972 when we were told not to be worried it was only a smeagle trade arrangment !!

Your Grace,

This is all very well. But what the blazes do the 187 visitors from the Vatican State want with us?

Mr Singh,

His Grace has invited them to share communion, but they have not responded.

I know what I hope!! Somebody's pulled an 'Italian Job' and those vile, illegal, vicious bits of parchment have gone Roamin' ...
into a sort of Transubstantiation - like the Black Hole in the midst of their ring of stars.

Ah well. One can dream. And pray.

Maybe they just want to convince themselves of our deep respect and love for Ol' Rumpy Golumpy.

The likeness between Rumpuy Pumpy and Smeagol (aka Stinker which I find most apt) is uncanny.

So what are Brown, the Dark Lord, and sundry other Cabinet muppets?

Uruk-hai most likely...

Yes. One of them is an evil, slimy, odious, lying, slithering vermin. The other is Gollum.

Rumpy and Gollum? Very good, yes; but for an even more remarkable example of startling similarity, take a look at:

Perhaps in a fit of humility, the commission want to appoint his Grace as their "spiritual" adviser?? (Irony alert).
