Pope: "No, that was not the correct answer to the first question. It was God, not not the spin doctors who made you."

Readers are asked to answer this on behalf of Mr Anthony Blair
Blair held talks with Pope Benedict XVI, with the Vatican stop on his farewell tour fueling rumors that he plans to convert to Catholicism. The two men met privately for 25 minutes and then were joined for further talks by English Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O'Connor.
A Vatican press office called the audience a normal meeting between the pope and a government leader. Blair leaves office on Wednesday.
The statement, issued after the talks with Benedict and a separate meeting with Secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, said there was a "frank" assessment of the international situation, including such "delicate" themes as the Middle East conflict and the future of the European Union
