Fazioís Christmas Present

Babbo Natale.jpg

The European Commission will start a legal action against Fazio before Christmas. The news was given by Charlie McCreevy, the Internal Market Commissioner. The accusation is abuse of power for having favoured the Banca Popolare Italiana {Italian Popular Bank} of Fiorani over the ABN Amro for the acquisition of Banca Antoveneta.

Fazio, between a conference, a visit to the Vatican to see the friends of Opus Dei and a chat with the life senator "prescritto" (acquitted on grounds of expiration of statutory terms) Giulio Andreotti, is already being investigated by the Procura di Roma {Rome magistrates} where he has been questioned for 5 hours.

What do we have to do to get liberated from him? He has now become a character in the commedia dellíArte. One like that, makes us the envy of all the humourists of the world.

For once, Iím asking for help from the Vatican. Who better than Fazio could be a substitute for the great Marcinkus? Give him to the IOR {Vatican Bank}, make him a guest of Vatican City and then, if he commits another tiny wee sin, you could always refuse extradition.

Poor Grillo....M.R Stinger would like a "a clear and comprehensible over-all statement about Italian politics". The clearest statement I have seen lately is the logo on the Dell'Utri Youth Club T shirt which says "We are free thanks to God and thanks to Silvio". That just about puts the situation in a nutshell...(if you don't believe me you can see a photo of the T-shirt on the Dell'Utri youth Club website!)

Fazio is even worst than Berlusconi.

Hang in there, Beppe -- your take on Fazio's activities may be a bit more light-hearted than he and all his close associates deserve, but we far-away folk need to be able to read your comments in order to understand the intricacies of what's going down. I wish you were able to post a clear and comprehensible over-all statement about Italian politics: but if you could do that, they wouldn't be as snake-like as they are ... Allora, grazie ancora una volta; non fermarti mai ...
