Pope and Politics is a big No No
« on: 10:45 16-Mar-2013 »
Pope Francis, who is a former Archbishop of Buenos Aires, has previously described the disputed territory as belonging to ?the homeland? of Argentina.

However, the Prime Minister told him he should ?respect? the islanders? referendum vote for the Falklands to remain British.

Mr Cameron even dared to make a joke at the expense of the Vatican?s ancient election processes.

?The white smoke over the Falklands was pretty clear,? he said.

I suppose this means the chances aren't so good for a Papal visit to the Falklands?

Hmm, some not particularly concerned with context might see a double meaning, a reference to Argentina's defeat and humiliation, as smoke may have floated over the islands when they lost the war., decades ago.
