I always think that a genuine friend is like a genuine antique - youd go a long way to find one and youd do anything to stop one getting broken. When an Italian gentleman made me an offer I couldnt refuse, stopping my friends from getting brokenMoreI always think that a genuine friend is like a genuine antique - youd go a long way to find one and youd do anything to stop one getting broken. When an Italian gentleman made me an offer I couldnt refuse, stopping my friends from getting broken meant stealing a very valuable antique.Somebody else has got my antique and I want it back, was how he put it.Who has it? I asked.Without a flicker of a smile he replied, The Pope.If you think of the Vatican as a big church where the Pope lives, then think again. It is a complete walled city with its own shops, its own bank and its own armed security in the shape of the ridiculously costumed Swiss Guards. Look a bit daft, dont they? But theyre well trained and well armed young men. Well, if stealing antiques from the Pope was easy, everybody would be doing it, wouldnt they?
