    I can't help thinking that if any country was going to house the hierarchy of a stupidly huge religion, it probably shouldn't be Italy.

    Then again, at least we don't have Pope Silvio the First.

    I think the new pope will be super, smashing, great.

    You'd think maybe that they'd consider setting a max age. What's the point in having doddery old coffin dodgers in the position?
    Makes it harder (snarff) to chase and catch the kids if they are decrepit.

    Now they've got a pope, do you think they'll lay the fuck off the Falklands for a bit?

    Expect it to get much worse - he's said several times he believes the Falklands are theirs.

    Oh noes, 1,600 flag-waving farmers might be under threat (of a change of sovereignity), clearly a rock several thousand miles away should remain ours, best finish up those carriers sharpish.

    A rock and all the oil in the sea around it.

    @LeoliansBro well fucking precisely, it's not the Little-Englanders who nevertheless live on the other side of the planet, the fact that we've occupied it for a few hundred years, or even the sheep. But we do want the money. I hope the Marines who cop it in the next one will think that worthwhile.

    I guess I should ask why you think Argentina has more right to the islands that we do?

    Not to segway from the Pope thread, but it doesnt belong to Britain, its a British Overseas Territory. The inhabitants merely expressed their desire to self-govern and have the Queen as their head of state. Not to be shafted up the arse by an aggressive neighbour.

    An old white bloke was an inspired choice.

    Fucking product marketing. I don't suppose anyone will believe me if I said I knew how to spell it correctly? ;) :D

    Pope Francis was the 74th choice of the Vatican Council - the first 73 failed the CRB checks.

    It's a good thing they don't then, because the City State that is Vatican City has that honour.

    The Argies didn't give a crap about the rock for hundreds of years until there was a sniff of oil.

    The answer's simple offer the Islanders dual nationality and if any oil is found share the spoils with Argentina. This will make the Islanders lives easier, remove the threat of war and give the Argies some much needed income.

    All this excitement at getting a new Pope.

    By the look of him we'll be doing it again in 2 years.

    @nick-h what people want is irrelevant when it comes to governments and oil...

    The split option is logical but I can't see the UK giving up any revenue whatsoever unless they absolutely have to.

    The Vatican has just adapted to the Information Age, people are used to getting things quicker these days.

    They did! We offered a share of the oil if they helped develop the oil fields, they told us to bugger off!

    Apparently Kirchner's been on the phone to our Dave, the stroppy milf.

    Are you sure, I think they are still struggling to come to terms with the Renaissance...
