The Grand Duchy in underpants

No to nuclear, yes to renewables

The Grand Duchy had Lorenzo the Magnificent, still left are the DSinDioxin-ites, the left wing banks and the unemployed. The sackings rather than coming like rain are falling more like hail. They are hitting just about everywhere a bit like individual grapes. “Alla do coio, coio”.
Art and tourism just on their own, could make Tuscany the richest lands in the world. But the administrators of the PDminusL cannot be satisfied with so little. For development, they want regasifiers, incinerators, bricks and cement and car parks, and even better if they are in the historical centre.
Tuscany has a great opportunity. To transform itself from “Chiantishire” to “Nukeshire”. The Tuscan children will be able to do “twinning” with the youngsters of Chernobyl. The Tuscan Archipelago could in fact welcome a nuclear power station on the isle of Pianosa. One of the many that the psycho-dwarf wants to gift to the people of Italy. It’s like opening up a rubbish tip at the “Ponte Vecchio” in Florence or like creating a Ligresti building in Pisa’s Piazza dei Miracoli. Crikey, I don’t want to have put ideas in the heads of this lot. The Tuscan bison charge like "Maremma maiala". You can’t even stop them with bullets designed for wild boar. You can already hear them from Rome. They will never give up (but is it in their interests?). Neither will we.

@ mureddu giani
Anyone can express his opinion, even if it is nonsense but it has to be very well argumented !

As the extent of the Madoff scandal unfolds it is becoming increasingly apparent that for years the financial and industrial sectors have been run like a gigantic Ponzi scheme, aided and abetted by Governments to defraud the people. Our business leaders have awarded themselves huge remuneration packages regardless of the performance of their companies. Bankers and traders worked out that they could earn huge fees just by passing investors money around from fund to fund without taking any personal risk and without worrying about the viability or performance of the funds they managed. It has been at best professional negligence, at worst fraud on a massive scale perpetuated by people who played on the trust of their clients, rich or not so rich. If all this speculation wasn't enough, Governments also gave the speculators preferential tax treatment so they could keep more of their illicit gains. And as is customary when a storm approaches, those at the top with the right connections jump ship with their chests of gold intact, leaving everyone else on board to sink.
It is unfortunately down to Politicians to protect and save the people who elected them. But they are too busy providing the lifeboats to their benefactors and friends.
