(for the avoidance of doubt, my answer to question 4 is Bishop Brennan, if only because he's so good at being kicked up the arse...)

I think there's no point - in the sense that it's very unlikely to work - in trying to guess who the new pope will be. It's more like Kremlin-watching (in the pre-1991 era) than anything else.

That's a perfectly legitimate reason (and not too dissimilar to the reasons why I voted...)

And of course I have still been trying to second guess the conclave, anyway :)

I vote for Nicolai Carpathia. Or could we get the bastard lovechild of Keanu Reeves and Connie Nielsen?

For the Pope question, anyone called Peter or variations from other languages, just to watch the believers in the Malachite prophecies twitch....

I suspect we'll win, because the polls have it as between us and the Tories, and the Tories have been constantly talking up UKIP, so that if they only come second it'll still look like a victory to the gullible. That presumably means that they don't think they have much of a chance...

I'm not really fussed about who becomes Pope but if Schönborn gets in, I get a packet of Hob Nobs.
