These spring days remind me of another April, of April 1945. The end of a long war and the wish for reconstruction. The country, as it was then, is in pieces. However, there is a difference thatís between comedy and tragedy. No one after 25 April risked going around the streets in a fez and a black shirt. The fascists disappeared or changed sides. The twenty year period of Mussoliniís rule ended in the worst possible way, but after the war, at least no one remaining from The Grand Council of Fascism put themselves forward as candidates. There was no stitch up between Togliatti and Dino Grandi. The people responsible didnít pass themselves off as the saviours of the nation as happens with Berlusconi, Bersani and D'Alema. The nation took note of the disaster that fascism had led to and it turned the page. Yesterday evening in Rome, the Capranica theatre, reminded me of another theatre, Milanís Lirico theatre, where Mussolini gave his final speechon 16 December 1944 to re-consolidate what was left of the black shirts. Capranica is the final blast of the stitch up. Gargamel chased the smurfs present in the theatre to convince them to vote for the former Christian Democrat, Marini, the PDLís candidate, instead of Rodotŗ, who has been put forward by the Italians in a plebiscite. Marini represents the status quo, the guarantee of a Bersani government, the "friend of the jaguar" that wants to use his tongue to lick the spots off the psycho dwarf. The appointment of a Minister of Justice whoís not hostile to Berlusconi and perhaps the placing of the latter as a life senator next year. No one has explained to Bersani that Italy has changed, that it no longer wants under the counter agreements with the psycho dwarf as has happened in the last twenty years. The country wants to definitively remove the shroud in which it has been wrapped by the gang-leaders of the PDL and the PDminusL. The war is over, give yourselves up! Deliver us from your presence for ever and ever. We are worn out.

In April 1945, Allied Forces won the Second World War and the Americans were in the lead. In April 2013, past allied forces and past axis forces now are together. The Americans as well as the Russians fade away into the way, donít they?

Berlusconi is indeed desperate and Bersani is also desperate -- one to stay out of jail, and the other to grab the reins of government no matter how weak the nags are that pull the wagon. One is willing to sell his very soul, and the other is willing to sell his ass! The country is still in crisis, a comedy that could still turn into a tragedy, but perhaps only a short term tragedy.

Good reminder of a fascist past not worth repeating. The "psycho dwarf " dis @Berlusconi is worth repeating...
