D’Alema let us dream: get out of our hair!
The trio D’Alema, Latorre, Fassino has been on exhibition in the summer’s intercepts. The summer of 2 years ago. Ricucci has finished up in prison. So has Fiorani. Consorte and Gnutti sort of. They’ve gone into the government.
The phrases of the DS will pass into the history books. D’Alema who wants to dream. Ricucci who is asking for the party ticket. Latorre the ambidextrous hand of D’Alema, who says that Fassino doesn’t understand anything. We suspected that but confirmation is always pleasing.
The parties take care of finance, of money not of the citizens’ problems. They frequent and encourage ambiguous persons. Let’s say delinquents. And they tell us that too.
For D’Alema who “has never spoken to Ricucci”, the true problems are the intercepts: “The affair is serious from a cultural viewpoint. First: the moment has arrived to recover a matter of principle according to which you don’t throw telephone conversations as fodder to the newspapers without outcomes in criminal proceedings. Second: the whole political world talks to entrepreneurs and finance people. It’s normal.
If they were to find all my conversations with Italian industrialists it would be possible to write a book. If these discussions are evidence of a crime they cannot be all put on the Internet.”
Fassino has taken sides. He said it himself in the intercepts. He’s “keeping his mouth buttoned up”.

Keep your mouth buttoned up
under the rays of the sun
Consorte make us dream
with the BNL hugging you

Keep your mouth buttoned up
at two steps from the sea
how cuddly to hear Ricucci
breathing with me

On your sweet lips
a DS perfume
I will smell for all time
of this Bank of love

When your account that is so very much in the black
once more becomes pallid
these days with Latorre on the edge of the sea
I’ll not be able to forget
Keep your mouth buttoned up
under the rays of the sun
Consorte make us dream
with the BNL hugging you
Keep your mouth buttoned up

Wholesale fraud by a major Italian company in Italy. When adsl arrived in my area I immediately signed up for the service, over the years I have frequently complained about how slow my 2 mega connection was (while paying Euro 39 per month, so it came to be a shock to find out that my 2 mega adsl connection was actually 4 mega (TIN had changed the speed without saying anything to me or giving me the chance to stay a 2 mega with relevent lower price).

Anyway the lack of speed continued to get worse, four years ago both the telephone and adsl would not work. I eventually traced this to two telephone poles rotting through and breaking the cables. The engineers at 187 came out and fixed the problem by tying the cables to fence and gate of my next door neighbour, the cables run infront of his entrance on the ground and on the road.

When it rains I loose my connection, when it’s too hot I loose my connection, when there is a lightning storm I loose my connection, when a car travels over the cables I loose my connection. I also loose my connection when the nextdoor neighbour trims his hedge and cuts the cables.

My present 4 mega (read 4,000) is currently running at 87 kps and upload is running at between 56 to 235 kps, a very distant number from the 4mega service I am paying for!

The engineers from 187 all know the problem, excuses I have heard is that I am along way from the centrale, or this area in general is a bad area and they get lot of complaints, I also have to wait 48 hours for them to fix the problem.

I have spoken to their freephone 803380 and been told that I am not a customer (even after giving my customer number) I have also been told that services are all normal and that a control of my line shows no anomality, once even after I had turned of the modem and removed the phone from the socket (I was calling from my mobile)

I’ve stopped using the telephone because of the noise on the line, my adsl connection is a joke and all I get from TIN is that everything is normal.

The last time I spoke with the freephone the women said everything was normal, I asked her if I could speak to a supervisor, she hung up on me!! Customer service at its best.

At least the 187 engineers have come out to fix the broken cables but as they say it all needs replace, they have informed their head office but nothing happened in FOUR YEARS

So why do I start this thread off with “Wholesale fraud by a major Italian company in Italy”, because TIN wanted control over the last mile but do not want to do anything about fixing problems.

Incidently and maybe of interest to all users of adsl still on the “old” copper cables, its impossible for 4 mega to be offered as a service which means that TIN are delibertly cheating customers out of money for a service they can not offer.

I have not paid my last quarter telephone/adsl connection bill yet, I received a reminder so called the hotline and asked why I should pay, the operator told me I had a contractual obligation to pay, when I informed her that they have a contractual obligation towards me, she told me that was nothing to do with her and I should pay the bill, I asked her would she go in to a shop to buy a pair of jeans, pay for them and leave them in the shop, she told me should would not I then said that exactly what she is asking me to do, pay for something I have not got, she agreed with me!!

I'm thinking I should ask for at least four years of adsl fees back!

Hoops it was only a pointing error, this was the statement released by Mr. Fassino upon being questioned by a journalist.
The question was, what did you mean by “Io sto’ abbottonatissimo!” although while trying to explain the statement the middle finger was showed to the journalist.
With the visual outburst, a verbal outburst was eared as well and entailed verbetum the following sentence “Up yours and the next election will only be at the end of this Legislature!”
Mr. Fassino, continue expeditiously toward the Senate Building for another round of Political discussion amongst Government Officials.
Cheers, long live The Italian Institutions

I don't understand why governments allow convincted criminals to have a place in government. They shouldn't be allowed into politics - there are plenty of other 'careers' they can get into. People like that do not deserve the public's trust.
