    It's bad when the only reason I know about this smoke rubbish is from the Dan Brown books.

    Funnily enough - that's how me and Mrs Gatt know about it!

    I do think they should perhaps liven the process up a bit.. Perhaps in the style of a Reality TV show and they could call it "Pope Idol"

    Gloss or Silk finish? Only there's the 100m Snail Finals on the other side and I'm unsure which to watch!

    Matt please, bathroom paint is best, hardwearing and all that.

    I did think this was like watching paint dry. It reminds me of the camera on our cruise ship, actually, that camera was much better, especially when you have an inside cabin!

    Ditto. I'm not too fussed about this pope business, being one of those non-religious folk and all, but I can't help but wonder..
    When did "Chosen by God" become "Elected by popular vote"? Surely if God does choose these people there'd be white smoke the first round of votes?
