As A child attending a Roman Catholic convent in Liverpool in the Fifties and Sixties, I remember graffiti on walls and incidents of Protestants and Catholics fighting in the streets. Stones were thrown at Archbishop Heenan.

During the past years, the two Archbishops Sheppard and Worlock have set a wonderful example of Christian co-operation. How can anyone disapprove of Catholics "being too friendly with Protestants"? Surely Christians should work together for the common good.

It would be interesting to hear some views of the people of Liverpool who remember what Alice Thomas Ellis would consider "the good old days".
