In the last few days, a cattle market has been in progress. The M5S is seeing a continuous stream of offers to head up the Lower House, commissions and even Ministries. The PDminusL has already done its back-room work to identify the M5S people for the various positions giving them the appropriate media exposure in its newspapers and TV channels. It’s the usual sluttish way of doing politics. However, to put it into effect, there have to be the people who are willing to sell themselves. And the M5S, its elected representatives, its activists, and its voters are not for sale. Bersani is not in the picture and he doesn’t realise that. The little games are over and when the abyss of Monte dei Paschi di Siena opens up, it’s possible that even the memory of the PDminusL will no longer be there. Renzi whose only credential is to have already been a professional politician without any worthwhile result is now putting himself forward as a candidate for the position of premier. But didn’t he lose the primaries? These people have faces like their backsides. To get him elected "Bersani and Errani are convinced that they have the definite support of many 5 Star senators. They reckon that they have done their research and identified the right people." In other words the PDminusL leaders are behaving like vulgar enticers. Is this politics? Buying and selling? State one thing the day before and contradict that the day after for post electoral convenience? The M5S is made up of responsible people that want a radical change of public morale, It’s impossible to stop it, especially with the usual political games. The M5S will vote in Parliament for each law that corresponds to its manifesto. It will not form alliances. This commitment: “The 5 Star MoVement parliamentarians will not form associations with other parties or coalitions or groups except for voting on the points it agrees with” is in the Code of behaviour for elected spokespersons of the 5 Star MoVement in Parliament. It’s been signed by all the candidates and made public to voters before the elections. These rules were known to everyone, including the politburo of the PDminus. If the PDminusL wants to transform the Lower House and the Senate into a Vietnam, the M5S is certainly not going to stand still and watch.
