Clean Up Parliament: the first responses

Belisario, Italia dei Valori

350,000 citizens are waiting for the employees of the Senate Committee (*) to examine the “Clean up Parliament” proposed popular law: no convict in parliament, two terms of office, direct preferences for the candidate. Two of them have replied with a video, Italia dei Valori’s Pancho Pardi and Belisario. The others play the silence game. It’s not understood why they are paid with our taxes. They don’t carry out their work and they don’t even communicate with the 350,000 voters, tax-payers, citizens.
I’ve just remembered that before the collection of signatures, I sent out a questionnaire on the three proposals to all the parliamentarians. 204 of them responded . Today, even more sure of their impunity, how many would respond?
Among the 204, there are three members of the Committee that has to evaluate “Clean up Parliament”: Enzo Bianco (PD), Lucio Malan (PDL), Mauro Maria Marino (PD). What did they say then?
For the convicts out of parliament they all agreed. Malan was asking for “heavy sanctions of the monetary type” for a party that puts forward as a candidate any person with previous convictions (in his party, Topo Gigio Veltroni’s PD, Carra was elected and he has been convicted for false declarations to the public prosecutor....).
For “two terms of office and then home”, Bianco and Malan expressed a wish for the eternal armchair (Bianco expressed his fear of becoming a pensioner). Marino was however in agreement.

Finally someone in the Parlament that cares about corruption! I think it's one of the main problems that we have in Italy. If in the institutions there are dishonest persons isn't possible that the country works in the right way.

In particular if you have been condemned it means that you are not quite surely an honest man and so you cannot represent a country.

I don't see any problem if someone stays many years in the parlament but only if it's elected by folk, otherwise there's the risk of an oligarchy (situation that already exists in Italy where a little group of persons holds much part of the country and takes decisions for everybody).

Two terms office, ten years in a row, is a suitable time to make everything a politician has promised, if he's a good one.

If a politician can't do without politics, not even for few years, he could nevertheless stand as candidate for other political offices, different from the one he has just left.

This rule should be applied even to the European Parliament; Grillo: let's make a referendum to propose this rule even to the UE!

Well, if this the intelligence level of the fraudulent NICKS there is really nothing to worry about then. Thanks for your kind information.

Hi Zero 111, are you on drugs or medication? If not I strongly recommend you see your doctor without delay.

I must agree that Dickhead is a more appropriate nome de plume for our ZERO. I think this guy is touched in the head. I am pretty aware of conspiracy theories and many of them are pretty real but what zero/dickhead is proposing is just too plain stupid to fathom.

What a stupid disjointed story by zero 111 whoever he may be.
If anyone out there has grasped what this zero 111 is trying to convey perhaps could explain it to me.
