Congratulations to Il Papa on retirement

Although a non-Catholic, I congratulate Il Papa on his decision to voluntarily join us retired geriatrics at a respectable age.

Let's hope it's contagious, and that our own head of state (same age) will do likewise, leaving us to become a republic at last.

Although if she does, I might start to believe that pigs might fly, and (an appropriate analogy) that Australia's mining magnates might give some of their similarly inherited wealth back to the nation.
