Achille Lauro, an old politician from Naples. For each vote he gave two shoes in exchange. One before and the other after the election. Italian politics have been lauro-ised. Cuffaro was elected for the 300,000 jobs that rotate round the Region of Sicily. Mastella is loved in Ceppalonia for the same reason. They are benefactors with the money of other people. The politicians have become employers of the employers. A vote, a salary. But who are the ones paying the salary of the parasitic public bureaucracy? The employment competition is won always by the one who is adjacent, recommended, the family. It’s an exchange vote, money for a mark on a symbol. Money for doing nothing. Of course, the less you do, the less you make a mistake. The problem is that the money to keep going has finished. Even in our country there have been honest politicians, a few, but there have been some, and one of these is Bulow.

"Dear Beppe,
I am Antonio of the Lodi Meetup. I’m writing you this letter to tell you that I had the fortune to know Arrigo Boldrini nicknamed "Bulow". He was a magnificent person who will be missed by this country that is by now tormented. He was a great man in his simplicity and he was tiny in that he didn’t want to appear unless there was the need to decide to do something for the people who he loved so much, for his country that with honour and honesty, he saved from fascism and from naziism.
It was great to hear him talk about how you can serve the State with passion and honesty, qualities that these scoundrels who are governing us don’t even have in the soles of their shoes, and I remember the advice that he offered me for my role as local councillor that at that time I held in the town where I lived.

When you are a public administrator you must always act in the interests of the citizens who elected you and who have had trust in you. If for a single moment, while you are carrying out your role as a representative of the institutions, you feel like doing something in your own personal interest, abandon everything straight away, because that is no longer your position.”

I beg you Beppe, publish this which is my final thought for my friend, Arrigo Boldrini. Who knows whether he will connect to the Internet in that place where he has gone for a better life.
”Bulow, we will miss your simplicity when you passed the evenings with us in the farm house in the countryside of Romagna eating ham and piadina {unleavened bread}and playing cards. I remember when you told me that it was your ideological conviction that made you refuse private property and you lived in public housing with a fair rent and that you alone paid more than all the other residents put together, given that you received the salary of a Senator of the Republic.
I remember that you told me that in Rome you went by train with the Senator’s card and that you refused the special “blue car”, State flights and other privileges because they were costs to be paid for by everyone. You were a great politician who always had respect for the people and the country that you represented. That respect that these crooks and delinquent politicians, who have elected themselves and who have followed you in your role, only have for the strong powers of which they are servants. They have respect for Don Ciccio who gets votes for them. They have respect for their shady interests in controlling their power, apart from for us.
I never asked if you believed in God. Or whether you were an atheist, or simply a lay person. But when you meet Him, you must tell Him that those like you on earth no longer exist, and that if He doesn’t take care of saving us, it really will be the end for us. Ciao Bulow." Antonio

PS Elio Veltri was presented in a TV broadcast as a representative of the "Beppe Grillo Civic List". I want to tell all not to do this. I have not authorised anyone to use my name for a list.

I would say to who says this blog should be censored, need coming to see in Italy. rather than say nonsense! ...

Io direi al tizzio quassù di venirsi a fare un giretto in Italia invece di dire stupidaggini! ...

Un grande personaggio una volta disse "Tu ti lamenti ma che ti lamenti pigghia nu vastuni e nesci fora li denti" ed era Domenico Modugno, che dobbiamo fare la buttiamo via questa "Malarazza"?

Honest men die, corrupted worms live. Nowadays Italy needs great individuals to pull the mass out of troubles..
