The Pope’s resignation was definitely news of a huge magnitude. Benedict XVI also allowed an earlier start for conclave. So after more than 2 weeks what kind of impact this resignation had on the Catholic Church, if any? Will anything what happened during the last 2 weeks influence the conclave, and how?

Some people claim Beppe Grillo is the only winner in Italian vote. It seem that Grillo basically doesn’t have any real political plan (not to mention something like foreign policy agenda), he is even more vague than other politicians, he is very successful in using social media, his supporters claim that they could not be defined as left or right-win, he call himself a populist. Would you say that the similar movements like Grillo’s have a real future in the European politics or not, and why?
