Cristina meets Pope

Argentina's painted lady, President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, wasted no time in flying to Vatican City to persuade the new Argentinian Pope to support her claim on the Falkland Islands. All we know is that he gave her a kiss and a diploma. Last year, as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, he declared that Argentina under Cristina's rule suffered from demagoguery, totalitarianism and corruption. Not a ringing endorsement! Note her straight forefinger handshake with Pope Francis. An offer of sexual favours or a secret Mafia sign? She's in good company in Vatican City. Zimbabwe's murderous dictator Robert "should-have-gone-to-Specsavers" Mugabe is there, plus Taiwan's president Ma Ying-Jeou. Britain has sent the Duke of Gloucester, Ken Clarke and Lady Warsi, which amounts to a diplomatic brush-off (CLICK).

Hi, Robshed

Only 3 out of about 1500 islanders voted in favour of Argentina in the recent referendum. Could be papists or just scared of Cristina's trouble making.

Hi, Gexton

Sweet? Cristina or the Pope?

You haven't been paying close attention. I posted 3 paintings yesterday, admittedly one painted with elephant dung!
