I'm sorry I left you in suspense over the outcome of the Referendum to decide the Political Status of the Falkland Islands (see last week's "Referendum Special"). In case you didn't hear.........

|The secret ballot meant there was no way of knowing how people voted!|
|Dick Sawle, MLA, being interviewed by the world's media.|
|The pile grows.....|
|"One of our votes is missing....!"|

And I was right about another "prediction" ("Is the Pope a Catholic?") last week. He is, indeed, and an Argentine to boot!
By the middle of the week, the journalists and cameramen were about to pack their cameras and notebooks and do some sightseeing while they waited for their flights at the end of the week.
But suddenly, they were told by their offices to find out what Islanders felt about the new Pontiff. Never has the local Catholic priest been in so much demand. The media scrum outside St Mary's Church spilled out onto the road.
Hopefully, normality will resume next week. But will the Falklands be the same again?
