Itís their fault

renzie_schiappa.jpg

Comparing Renzie with Seedorf is too harsh on Seedorf. Itís comparing a bungler and a champion. But there is something that they have in common. They have both invoked that old alibi: "Itís their fault". For Renzie itís Lettaís fault that the public accounts are in disarray. For Seedorf the catastrophe in the Milan football team is Allegriís fault. No one forced them to take on the position. No one stopped them from giving an early explanation of the faults of their predecessors. Itís how youíd expect spoilt children to behave. Thereís a funny story about newly appointed CEOs. The outgoing CEO prepares three envelopes for the person taking over. They are only to be opened if thereís a difficulty. The first envelope contains the message "Blame your predecessors!." The second envelope contains the message "Blame your colleagues!." The third envelope contains the message "Prepare three envelopes for whoever takes your place!." In record time, Renzie has already opened the first one and has been shooting his mouth off about Letta and Saccomanni. The second will be coming along in a few months, maybe weeks, definitely after the European elections, before that heís just got to make promise after promise to make Italy seem like the land of milk and honey. In the second note there are already two names: Del Rio and Padoan, both possible successors if he were to lose the election and theyíre going to have to get used to walking very close to the walls. Renzie does not forgive. In the absence of others who are to blame, apart from himself, Renzie will sit down and start to prepare three envelopes. Blaming the others is a national sport. Thatís why thereís tolerance for anyone who doesnít accept responsibility for what they do. Theyíre often a clone of ourselves and, if we are indulgent to ourselves, then thereís even more reason to be indulgent to others. In both cases, whether weíre talking about the Government or the Milan football team, the owner is the same: Berlusconi, who is never accused of anything. The economic situation of the country and of the formerly great team has nothing to do with him. But heís the one that chose Renzie and Seedorf. Itís he that governed for 10 years out of the last two decades. If the people he appointed fail, then itís their fault. They are employees and they can be sacked. Itís always possible to find someone else to take the blame.

Well said, Mik, some of the comments are truly infantile. What a pity these people turned out to be a bunch of experts in bowel movements hell bent on creating anarchy in what is already a bedlam of a parliament. Trouble is, their arguments are quite often shareable - it's the constant ranting that gets my goat.
