Bagnasco urges Italy's politicians to put aside 'populism'

Whoever endangers govt will answer to history, says Church

Rome, May 20 - Whoever endangers Italy's newly-formed government will not be remembered kindly and will have "history to answer to," the head of the Italian bishops conference, Cardinal Angelo Bagnasco, said on Monday. A turnaround from the current crisis is "possible together. We musn't lose the opportunity," Bagnasco said. "This moment in time is so critical that whoever tries to trip up or block (the government), whichever side they are on, will have to answer to history" he said. Politicians must "think about the people, with a great sense of responsibility, without dangerous populism and put forth their best resources, skills and hearts," Bagnasco said. Premier Enrico Letta's government, which was sworn in last month after two months of post-election deadlock, is seen as fragile because of friction between Silvio Berlusconi's People of Freedom Party (PdL) and Letta's own Democratic Party (PD).
