Is it just me?

Does anyone else find it at least marginally distasteful that the base of the dome on St. Paul's Cathedral has been festooned with an advertisement for the Make Poverty History campaign?

It's not the fact that it is promoting what is essentially a political lobby. Involving itself in politics is hardly unknown to the Church of England. But it strikes me as at least a little bit undignified to take one of the most important historical landmarks in all of Britain, which famously survived even the blitz with its structural integrity intact, and turn it into billboard.
