The parties are using "copy and paste"

>>>Today, 21 February at 5:00 pm, Iím in Rietiís piazza victory Emanuele and then at 9:00 pm, Iím in Viterboís piazza Verdi. Tomorrow, 22 February at 6:00 pm Iím in piazza San Giovanni in Rome! Follow the live broadcasts on La Cosa! >>>

The parties are unashamedly copying the MoVimento 5 Stelle {5 Star MoVement}. They are even embarrassing when they say that "they want to come out from the darknessď (Gargamel 17 February in piazza del Duomo) or when they proclaim that "no one will be left behind" (PDminusL). These are slogans taken word for word from the M5S manifesto. As well as the slogans, theyíre even copying the programme, like the psycho dwarf who said (hold onto your hats) that politics is about being passionate rather than about money, that his parliamentarians (his - as they have been selected by him personally) will lower their salaries and will only serve two terms of office.
The parties are using "cut and paste" but thereís one M5S slogan they havenít made use of "Letís send them all home" because itís very difficult to turn round and give yourself a boot up the backside. The word "antipolitics" has been deleted, it has been absorbed point by point by the parties and thus has become noble politics, in the highest possible meaning of the term. The prostitutes on the rebound use unfamiliar words like honesty, participation, civil society. They chew the words in public like chewing gum, then in private they spit them out. However, when itís a question of money, they donít compromise. No one refuses money. They all want the election contributions, all of them, the PDL, the PDminusL, Rigor Montis or Ingroia the multi-purpose vacuum cleaner .
In relation to money theyíre certainly not copying us. How much are we talking about? 91 million euro a year for the Lower House, the Senate, the regional councils and the European Parliament, thatís equal to 455 million over the five year period. The M5S has already refused the reimbursement of election expenses for the regional elections where it had a presence (the only one to do so), the most recent time was in Sicily, and it has been said many times already that it will not ask for the reimbursement of election expenses nor of contributions for political activity. Expenses have been entirely covered by voluntary contributions that up until now amount to about 516,000 euro coming from 12,593 donors (Thank you!) with an average of 41 euro, and anyway this money will all be accounted for. The M5S will take every action to ensure that the contributions that would have been destined for the M5S are held in the coffers of the tax authorities.
According to current predictions, the M5S is likely to have the right to about 100 million euro in relation to its presence in Parliament. It is not going to take that money. This is a true "spending review".
The M5S is also not going to accept the millions of euro in regional contributions for Lombardy, Lazio and Molise. On the other hand, Ambrosoli and Zingaretti have decided to keep the contributions, unlike Carcano, Barillari and Federico who are candidates for the position of M5S spokesperson in Lombardy, in Lazio and in Molise.
Parties, copy this too!

PS. Thereíll be connections from Piazza San Giovanni in Rome to the cities throughout Italy that are following the streaming of the event. If the square near you is broadcasting images in live streaming, fill in this form to get the connection.

Hi everyone,

I watched a video of Beppeīs speech at San giovanni square in Rome yesterday. It was something unbelievable. I cannot say if there were 800.000 people in the square as claimed by the organizers,or less or more. However one thing is sure : M5S pacific revolution is shaking down Italy and for God sake it will change it.
Thanks Beppe

Dear Beppe,

I saw a segment about your 'Five Star Movement' this morning on TV in the UK. I really wish we had a similar movement over here - and more TV programmes featuring Montalbano :-)

I'm particularly glad you have some people with a good background in economics. I'm afraid this subject is a mess with many economists even doubting some of the fundamental tennets, which is why I thought to write an article:
