Time to reclaim Vatican City

Italy should repudiate the Lateran Treaty, send in the tanks to St Peter's Square and reclaim the territory of the Vatican City.

Dodgy dealers would become subject to Italian law – and the foreign criminals among them liable to extradition.

This is the only way to tackle the corruption there. Pulling the carpet of worldly power from under the Roman Catholic Church might also open the doors to a real reformation within the Church.
