Signatures for the Popular Law and the Referendum

""Saviano Continua" – pasting up posters in Milan

Finally they have gone back to talking about Beppe Grillo in the media. I missed that. Now that the Court of Cassation has decided that the signatures are insufficient or not valid for the referendum on the abolition of the Order of Journalists and the financing of newspapers (a billion euro a year) and for the end of the Mediaset-RAI duopoly they can uncork the champagne bottles in the HQs of the newspapers and the political parties. Take advantage of it because the celebration will soon end. Advertising is migrating to the Internet together with news and you will not be there.
I accept the decision of the Court of Cassation. I don’t even want to discuss it. I take note of it. But this is one thing that you perhaps don’t know. The signatures for the Clean Parliament are valid. Has some journalist informed you of this great news item?
Your signatures have arrived at the Senate. The discussion of the law has been “assigned to the First Standing Committee (Constitutional Affairs) by the reference body on 22 May 2008. Announcement of the session number 7 of 27 May 2008.” I am waiting to be called. Among the members of the Committee there’s even Francesco Cossiga. Crikey. What luck!

Wait a minute.....
I need to figure something out here. Were there signitures? If there are the signitures and they have been presented how can they just nullify, ignore them and just wish them away?
It sounds to me more like a Court of Castration never mind Cazzazione.
Only in Italy this could happen where black is definately not black and white is not white and the new pres of the USA has a great tan.
What a country......what a country!!!!
