Give us back our old nun, demanded Albania. Dig her up and send her back.
No, said India. She’s our old nun, not yours.
And you know, come to think of it, they have a point.
After all, Mother Teresa was an Indian citizen. It wasn’t in Albania that Mother Teresa based her worldwide scam, and in fairness to India, if their poor people were the ones used to raise cash for Mother Teresa’s dishonest fortune, at the very the least they should be able to keep the body.
Why should a crowd of ex-communists own the holy bones when they didn’t buy into the Teresa scam? Incidentally, MT was born in Skopje, so if anyone else could demand the blessed remnants, it would be FYR Macedonia.
Anyway, I don’t think the Indians are going to buckle under Albanian threats to unleash total war on them. What do you reckon?
Personally, I think if anyone has the right to demand the body of the old scam-artist, it should be either the UK, to stand trial for murdering Princess Diana. or the US for stealing the life savings of thousands of old people.
You can try old con-artists for being crooks, can’t you?
