Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The Vatican has expressed delusion for President Napolitano's choice not to sign the government's emergency decree to block a Supreme Court decision.

The government has decided to proceed by proposing a bill in the Senate. The government is seeking to have an emergency session and is confident that they can pass a law within "three days"- not at all unconceivable since the parliament no longer exists. The government has an ample majority in both the Senate and the Chamber of Deputies, a majority that owes its allegiance entirely to being appointed to office by Berlusconi rather than being directly elected.

The extra-European entity, the Vatican, will see their prayers answered.

Crowds opposed to the Berlusconi-Vatican initiatives have gathered in Milan, Turin and Rome this evening. The tam-tam on the internet this evening points to numerous demonstrations in the days to come.

The case has hit most major European news sites- BBC, CNN, El Pais, France 24...
