Vatican Central - Conservative hold
So a new pope has been elected. Vatican officials can now get on with the job of clearing the Sistine Chapel of any discarded stakeboards and "Good Morning!" leaflets that were not burnt to make white smoke.
I thought they might pick a cardinal from the third world and I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition. Still, if you're going to have a hardliner who wants to crack down on contraception and homosexuality, it helps to choose someone who started out in the Hitler Youth.
