Sometimes, I wonder whether people are looking for something to talk about. Pope Francis has obtained a new passport from his native country – BERGOGLIO, Jorge Mario. Well, one might protest, he is the Pope and is supposed to have Vatican identity papers and nationality.
I suppose I’m not the Pope, but here’s mine:
I live in France, yet I still renew my passport with the British Consulate in Paris. Yes, I have remained British and I am allowed to live and work in France by virtue of being a national of a member State of Europe. I doubt whether my passport will go viral!
Well, there we are. Pope Francis is Argentinian. What a surprise!
