Pope wasn’t a very good guest
WELL, the Pope has departed and Britain is £15m (€18m) poorer because Mussolini and the Vatican decided that despite it being smaller than Soho with a population of about 800, the Vatican would become a state.
Britain’s increasingly secular society, which so worries the Pope, has paid for a huge PR junket and provided venues for the gigs, with entrance fees costing £25 (€30) for a Pilgrim Pack.
The proceeds from these, along with the usual T-shirts, mugs and so on go into the church's mighty coffers.
