Whatís happening in Italy is a progressive coup d'ťtat. The end of democracy one step at a time, to get the citizens ready for change. Gentle and soft like Gaberís shampoo. The first step was Calderoliís porcata law that ALL the parties wanted and made use of in spite of the fact that the PDminusL pretended they didnít want it. Parliamentarians have become "appointees", like the knights of old. Theyíre appointed by the 5 party secretaries. No longer preferences of the voters, but with absolute liberality, friends, lovers, wives, in laws, trusted lawyers, mates that have to find a way of avoiding prison. The second mini-coup came with the appointment of Rigor Montis(forced into Parliament as a life senator for unknown merits) and becoming President of the Council without the preceding government losing a no confidence motion in Parliament. Thatís something thatís never happened before. A worrying precedent. And now the third mini-coup. No one knows when there will be voting or when election day will be, or what electoral law will be applicable, what the constituencies will be, whether there will be premiums or mini-premiums and who will decide. Zilch at only a few months to go before the elections, while Napolitano at the end of his term of office, is extending his prerogative to guarantee the Republic to supervise the next legislature. The next president has to be Monti, no coalition must win no political government must lead the nation, the electoral law that Calderoli is brewing up in his role as legislator, an extreme joke to take the Italians for a ride, has to be designed to exclude every possibility of a win for the M5S and it must put forward once more the warmed up soup of the PDL coalition with the PDminusL, the UDC and with the newbie SEL. A massive government of the parties in which whoís governing is another, a so-called "technical guy" (but what sort of technical?) chosen by the ECB. A man trusted by International finance who is turning the Italian economy into a desert of the Tartars. What needs saying, what needs to be shouted out, even in International settings, and I will do this, is that Italy is no longer a democracy but a party-ocracy affiliated to the international economic powers. Those who have brought the country to destruction, display themselves on TV and give interviews to newspapers putting themselves forward, without embarrassment, without shame, as the novelty that is making progress, instead of disappearing from circulation! They laugh in the TV studios with Frantiís laugh, these people who are responsible for unemployment, for the selling off of the country, for corruption (no law has ever arrived), for the mafia (with whom the State has negotiated), for the conflict of interests (no law has ever arrived), for the public debt which they have used to ruin Italy and fill the pockets of the lobbies, for the destruction of the companies, for an inhuman tax burden and for the lowest wages in Europe. You cannot be both the illness and the cure. Where have you been in the last 20/30/40 years? With your backsides in the sun thanks to the money of the Italian people! And you donít want to shift from there at any cost, even turning the electoral law upside down during the run up to elections. Not even Stalin or Mao were brazen like you, changing the rules of the game at the last minute, stating that itís for democracy. See you (in any case) in Parliament! Itíll be a pleasure.
