Oh poor George (Cardinal Pell)...might have been easier to come home!

Cardinal George Pell, currently residing in the Vatican, has been deemed too unwell to return to Australia to answer questions in a Royal Commission into Clergy Abuse. Whist the sexual abuse of children covers the whole country, Pell's own diocese of Ballarat in Victoria is notorious and it's important that he front the Commission.

So if he can't (won't) come home for the hearing on Feb 29th, then 55 victims and support people are going to Rome to bear witness to his testimony!

Georgie boy, you probably should have thought this one out a bit better mate. If you'd attended the Royal Commission, you would have had some modicum of privacy.....I'd hate to be you with 55 angry Aussies in a smallish room.

Oh yeah!
