The spectacle of a President of the Republic who looks on, in silence, while the President of the Court of Accounts, Tullio Lazzaro, declares that corruption in Italy is increasing in assigning contracts, in the health system, and in procurement is a desolation. Napolitano says not one word. He does not feel it is necessary to go on TV when faced with the statement: “The protracted inaction for years has caused incalculable damage.”
The Institutions have become the Notaries of Destruction. They take note, they make records, they provide evidence. The State is falling into an abyss, but with the full awareness of the Great Bureaucrats. The citizens, like the stars, stay and watch.
I have reread the Costitution, its 139 articles, its thirty or so pages.
Article 1 specifies:
- The sovereignty belongs to the people
Article 48 has two points:
- Voting is personal, equal, free, and secret
- The right to vote may not be limited
The “piggish” electoral law imposed by the Centre Right in 2006 cancelled a referendum and eliminated direct preferences. An unconstitutional law.
We can’t have elections with this law. The result would be illegitimate. It impedes the direct choice of candidate. It limits the right to vote. Having cancelled the referendum any ounce of sovereignty of the people has been removed.
In the Constitution there are “Constitutional Guarantees”.
Article 134 says
- The constitutional court decides: - disputes concerning the constitutionality of laws and acts with the force of law adopted by state or regions
I have decided to put forward a formal written petition to the Constitutional Court for it to declare the “piggish” electoral law to be unconstitutional and cancel it.
In fact, Article 136 specifies:
- When the court declares a law or an act with the force of law unconstitutional, the norm ceases to have effect from the day following the publication of the decision.
The Court has two months to decide before the elections. If it declares the law to be unconstitutional it will be still possible to vote with the preceding law or move the voting until after the referendum, that is set for May and straight away annulled with a move by professional cheats.
This self-referencing political class has cancelled two referendums on electoral law. It makes desk-top decisions about who has to represent us in Parliament. Is this constitutional? And if it is, then what is unconstitutional? Stay tuned!

Hello everyone,
When they get your votes, you get the shaft, from either side, now that Italians are displaying their disapproval for all of them, they change the tune and bag you for more of the same.
Got it, hook sinker and line all together.
Take a bite one more time, they are ready to wheel you in again.
Same Idiots, different Parties obviously, more money for them, and apsolutely not a chance for you to select anything.
Either you believe or not.
Good luck and good night, and by the way don’t even read Italian newspapers it’s worthless.
The future looks bright wear shades.
Thanks

sorry to hijack the thread, but i think you will forgive me...
as you probably know, it has been suggested for tony blair to be EU president. if you feel that the man who ignored his country's protest to follow bush into iraq, a war of choice based on lies, should not be permitted to become EU president, please go to this link http://stopblair.eu/indexit.html to sign a petition. we are gathering signatures rapidly, and i encourage all readers here to have their say on this matter.

thanks, back to your regular programming!

BEPPE, VOLEVO CHIEDERTI,

PERCHÉ INSIEME A MARCO TRAVAGLIO NON APRI UN CANALE TELEVISIVO VIA INTERNET "GRILLO TV" on demand.

potresti mettere travaglio come direttore di un tg grillo...

con programmi che potrebbero essere d'informazione, ambiaente, energia, cultura....ecc.

insomma un canale con il tuo stampo....

ovviamente per finanziarti potresti utilizzare pubblicità di prodotti biologici...ecc., ecc. ovviamente eticamente corretti....

possibilmente il tutto on demand....

altrimenti quando arriverà silvio saremo spacciati, toglierà come minimo anno zero....

CHE NE PENSATE?

Posted by: Marco Barth | February 7, 2008 03:26 PM


Ok Beppe. Sul fatto che la legge elettorale corrente sia una porcata, sono d''accordo con te. Ma PERCHE' allora il V-DAY non viene spostato a prima di queste ELEZIONI? Non so quanti posts ho letto che chiedono la stessa cosa. Sarebbe talmente inutile farlo dopo che e' ovvio che tutti ti chiedano la stessa cosa... Ma tu non rispondi. Perche' rimani in silenzio? DOBBIAMO assolutamente fare sentire la nostra voce prima che la gente vada a votare. In un Paese dove i mezzi di informazione sono completamente assoggetati da chi non vogliamo in Parlamento, abbiamo il dovere - noi che invece sappiamo - di INFORMARE dalla PIAZZA: la "sciura Maria"; quelli che vivono in letargo da troppi anni; o quelli che hanno ancora gli occhi foderati di prosciutto. INSOMMA, DOVE SEI?

Hello everyone,
Vote only TEMPORARY Employee, with the Minimum wage as a salary.
If any of these Idiots don’t like it, please go ahead do not Participate, we will miss you very much.
Otherwise Vote for Volunteer Politicians with No Salary (I am very confident they will do better than these scum bags with multiple PHD’s!).
The future looks bright wear shades.
Thanks

Something needs to be done before the elections to show the politicians of both sides that the Italian people have had enough and things need to change. Corrupt, self serving politicians we do not need , we want honest politicians who are going to serve the interests of Italy and the majority of italian people and work to get italy out of this mess.

Dear Beppe,

wouldn't it be possible to anticipate the V-day to few days before the election? this would counter-attack the subdle slogan communication campaign of the micro-dwarf to incorporate grandmothers and teenagers!

I am italian and live abroad and i am afraid that i will go back the ashame of a berlusconian government; back to the stereotype to be considered a mafioso myself, just because of the corruption-oriented-government that represents me.

I AM VERY SCARED!!

Don't let they change your constitution, or Italy will fall into a slow process of decadence.

Posted by: Jason R. Forbus | February 7, 2008 09:56 AM


Dear Beppe,

I do agree with you and with Calderoli: The electoral law is "piggish", it's a "porcata". An electoral law based for instance on the German one with a four or five percent barrier would suit much better for Italy. But even this system would not alter the "self-referencing political class". In the US election campaign all remaining candidates promise "change", and one might be distrustful about the possibilities for such a change. Italy needs a huge change, too. Not only regarding the electoral law, but regarding the ways to "do" politics.

Politicians insist in solving Campania's waste problem by incinerating it. Yet, most scientists and health professionals around the world say that incinerating urban waste is a an awful idea -waste of taxpayers' money, very bad environmentally, make health costs skyrocket and will not create jobs. While incinerators will generate ash that will travel across Southern Italy, polluting rivers, plants, animal stock but more importantly harm children. Truck traffic will increase creating more noise, smell and pollution. So why, in the name of God, would they want to build an incinerator? Yeah, why? As things go in that part of the world would it be a stretch to think it's about money? The cost to build an incinerator is a project that no other public works will cause money to get around. Let's say the cost of one of them in Campania is 200 million. A lot of money. One tenth of one per cent of 200 million euros is 200,000 euros. Could that money come in handy at election time? Or for other political favors? Could that be good for politicians, lawyers, engineers and "bosses" and bad for democracy and taxpayers? Or, is it absurd to think as much?

The point that we need to get is not about which coalition is the best one or less dangerux what we need to fix in mind is that they do not work for the people, do not work for the Nation do not work for realized an idea..they do work for them and their relatives/friends/friends of a friend/criminals..they speak staing beind a glass (TV-which is not the fuck*** parlamient)covering their self using words made up with the only goal of mix the reality up...I make my point...the ones who belivies that is fair going to vote, now, with this law are the real problem! who accept to live in a country where politician are usually living in TV, in a country where topics that are normal all over europe can't be discussed with and explained to people are the problem, people who owns a membership with any political parties are the problem, people like the guy who has written this comment "

Uncostitutional Law ???

Why this problem comes out only now that Prodi and his band has lost the government ? They did not want to leave their power chairs that's why, and most important because they know they are going to lose hard this time. You should know that every time a law is passed, the first control made by the court of the counts is about costitutionality, so why they say now that the law is uncostitutional while when it was approved it was ok ? PRODI GO HOME AND NEVER COME BACK"

are the problem and not because you have attacked Prodi, but just because you have not yet noticed the real problem!! for They it's Ok to lose and to win the important is to stay! no law, no principle, no future, no justice has never moved their action! WE ARE THE PROBLEM IF WE CHANGE THEY GO HOME

The formal written petition to the Constitutional Court should be organised and signatures collected in every town and village as soon as possible. When delivering it to the Constitutional Court of Italy, photocopies should also be delivered to the EU and UN institutions with maximum press coverage.

Prendiamo il programma che era stato preparato attraverso il blog in occasione delle scorse elezioni. Affidiamolo a Di Pietro con l'impegno a realizzarlo punto per punto.

Hello everyone,
It’s pretty clear by now, regardless what side you are on that these so called Politicians are clueless.
They are Incompetent, they are corrupt, they are not sapient (Even at their age?) and last but not least they do not belong at the helm of Italy.
So whatever happen you have to send them the clear message, “Go home, get another job, you do not belong in any Italian Public Institution!”
Get the control of the Country away from them.
These Idiots belong in the waist basket or in their own Private Enterprise, lets see if they can compete in a free and cognizant Market (Doing what I am not sure?)
The future looks bright wear shades.
Thanks

So there maybe hope for Italy yet. Even then it will take some time to get most of the thieves out of government.
