Argentina president Christina Fernandez de Kerchner asks for Falklands help from Pope who was once her sworn enemy

Vatican City, - Two-faced Argentinian president Christina Fernandez de Kerchner today made a fauning plea to Pope Francis over the Falklands.

She begged him to intervene in the row with Britain regarding sovereignty of the islands – even though he was once her sworn enemy.

Her brazen U-turn came as she had lunch with the former Buenos Aires Archbishop shortly after arriving in Rome his inaugural papal mass.

Before he became Pope, the pair had repeatedly clashed over her liberal views on gay marriage, gay adoptions, sex education and contraception.

Her late husband and presidential predecessor Nestor Fernandez once described the church leader – then Archchishop Bergoglio – as “the head of the opposition”.

But today Kerchner was all smiles as she presented the ponfiff with a tea urn and later giggled: “I’ve never been kissed by a Pope before.”
