Archdruid: Well, I see x has just died.
All: Yep, true enough.
Archdruid: In the old days, when we were - did we but realise it - quite innocent, we'd have had a liturgy featuring x's catchphrases, famous song lyrics and so forth.
All: Yep, we would.
Archdruid: Can't risk that sort of thing now. So - x has just died. And we pray that God will receive x according to God's own mercy, and not according to anything x may have done that we don't know about yet, but will do shortly. Not that we want to cast aspersions.
All: Too right, Eileen. Pious, well-meaning, but safe.
Archdruid: I think that's quite enough of that.
All: Least said soonest mended.
All may disperse, to keep an eye on Twitter for the revelations that may - or may not - come out.
