Grillo dons crown of thorns in front of photographers

M5S leader raises speculation after European election defeat

(ANSA) - Marina di Bibbona, May 30 - The eader of Italy's embattled anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) Beppe Grillo on Friday wore a crown of thorns in view of photographers stationed in front of his beach house in the Tuscan town of Marina di Bibbona.
    Grillo waved at the photographers but did not comment as he went on a beach walk with friends. The comedian and politician is taking a few days of vacation after hard campaigning before European elections in which he strived for his Eurosceptic M5S to beat out the centre-left Democratic Party (PD), headed by Premier Matteo Renzi, for first place.
    Instead, the M5S was trounced by the PD, which garnered more than 40% of the vote, or roughly twice that of the M5S.
