Is Britain a Catholic Country?

On the one hand, for the first time since the Reformation, there are more weekly attendees of Catholic services than Anglican services.

But, on the other hand, as one of the commenters on the above news article points out,
"From a population of 50 million, a grand total of 1.5 million Catholics and Protestants go to church. Ten times as many watched Strictly Come Dancing last night."

On the third hand, it's still rather fun (would they say "cheeky"?) to propose the following definition of the English Reformation:
"A period of approximately five centuries during which attendance at a nationalized church surpassed that of Churches in union with the Roman see."
