Cossiga, why are you not speaking out?


The draft popular law “Clean up Parliament” is still waiting to be discussed in the Senate by the Committee for Constitutional Affairs (*). The request to the members of the Committee to express their opinion on the three modifications to electoral law:
- no convict in Parliament (today there are 18 of them )
- two legislatures and then go home
- direct elections of the candidate with voting for a named person
has been welcomed only by Pardi and Belisario (IDV). In the next few days I will publish the films with the declarations.
The others on the Committee are staying silent.
An understandable silence: if they lose their place as parliamentarians what else can they do in life? Who will give them a salary?
The silence of Cossiga, a member of the Committee, however surprises me. “Francesco, why are you not saying anything?
I am doing a named call to the lifetime senator and emeritus president. Let him make a pronouncement. In the last few weeks, he has been beating up professors and students remembering the great times of terrorism and of the infiltrators, but also the presumed bosses on a political and operative level (Fini, Scajola, De Gennaro) of the G8 slaughter with the call for a Committee of Inquiry that:
”should shed a clear light on the painful facts that happened, including the killing of the young Giuliani, carried out by a carabiniere and full clarity on the activity of the government, and in particular of the then Vice President of the Council, the honourable Gianfranco Fini, who was strangely present in the Police Headquarters during the time of these happenings, of the then Minister of the Interior, Claudio Scajola and above all, especially after the declarations of the current Chief of Police Manganelli, on the operation of the former Chief of Police Gianni De Gennaro, because it was he, according to the overall meaning of the declarations by Dr Manganelli, the top person responsible for the operational management on that day and because he is at the top of the Security System for the Republic and it is in his interests that full clarity is revealed on his activity…”
A committee to change Italy exists already, it is the one of which Cossiga is a member. Let him make it function and let it take the draft law into Parliament. The fish always smells starting at its head.
Out with convicts who are making laws for themselves. Out with lifetime politicians. Out with wives, lovers, relatives, comrades and lackeys appointed by the party secretaries.
I’m waiting for you on the blog.

(*) The committee has Vizzini (PDL) as president and its members are Benedetti Valentini (PDL), Incostante (PD), Adamo (PD), Bodega (LNP), Bastico (PD), Battaglia (PDL), Belisario (IDV), Bianco (PD), Boscetto (PDL), Ceccanti (PD), Cossiga (UDC-SVP-Aut), De Sena (PD), Fazzone (PDL), Lauro (PDL), Malan (PDL), Marino (PD), Mauro (LNP), Nespoli (PDL), Pardi (IDV), Pastore (PDL), Pistorio (Misto), Procacci (PD), Saltamartini (PDL), Sanna (PD), Saro (PDL), Sarro (PDL), Vitali (PD).

As a NON Italian I don't express/judge the subject.
As an Euro citizan express my surprise seeing that convicted or under investigation politicians are in yr parlement/senate!!!!
They should be ashamed and leave their seats to honest Italians!
Representing with dignity and proud the Italian people.

Provo a postare nel "reparto" inglese , perchè il sito italiano è assolutamente inagibile , almeno a me. Cossiga è un esperto di servizi italiani e di tutto quello che si nasconde dietro , "Stay-behind" appunto , ma non credo che ne sia il burattinaio , è solo una "persona informata sui fatti" perdipiù capace di provocare pubblicamente
reazioni "capaci" di bloccare sul nascere comportamenti ben più pericolosi , quindi "W KOSSIGA" . Cazzo , le cose ovvie sono talmente ben mimetizzate che sembra proprio che non esistano. Meditare è capire , blaterare è fare aria con la bocca in forma di rutto rumoroso .
