Cafod recognises distress caused by employee's memoirs

McBride memoirs

The director of the British Church's overseas main aid agency has acknowledged the distress caused by the publishing of the memoirs of its employee Damian McBride, a former press adviser to Gordon Brown, reports the Tablet.

In his book published last month McBride admitted to political skulduggery including planting negative stories about political opponents. Cafod had initially agreed to accept half the royalties from the book but later announced they would be declining them.

At Cafod's annual Pope Paul VI memorial lecture on October 25, Chris Bain admitted that Cafod had 'been in the news recently for not so positive reasons.'

Speaking to the audience of supporters  last Friday, he went on: 'I sincerely want to acknowledge the upset and disappointment that these challenges may have caused to many of our most committed supporters.'
