Today's cardinal number: 19

Poor Vincent Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster. 

On the day Pope Francis makes him a cardinal, the BBC's report on the Pope's move relegates his good news to the final two paragraphs. 

Yes, the good old internationalist BBC is far more interested in the new cardinals from the Global South.

This is how they begin their report:
Pope Francis is to appoint 19 new cardinals next month, including churchmen from Haiti and Burkina Faso, reflecting his commitment to the poor.
Well done Cardinal-to-be Vincent!
