The Pyrrhic Devolution


Bossi and the League have achieved their great Pyrrhic victory with the approval in the Senate of the devolution (in the dialect of the Po valley: devolusiÚn).
Bossi taking the place of the elephants used by Pyrrhus to temporarily defeat the Romans got the upper hand, with an ability on a level with the pachyderms Calderoli, Speroni e Castelli, who greeted the final vote with forceful roars.

Everyone knows, even the League-ists, that the June referendum needed to confirm the reform of fundamental documents will cancel this law that has really not been born, wanted by only a handful of people and imposed on the Pole like a tax to be paid.

Of course that assumes that the confirmatory referendum will not be swept away with an ad hoc law.

What are the costs of this operation that, in fact, doubles many competencies at the level of the Regions, nobody can say. Belgium started off a similar operation and its public accounts have still not come back (ours are already in coma).

I suggest that we make the League pay for the forthcoming confirmatory referendum whose outcome is already known and whose cost is certain and I propose a new type of devolution, that on the mafia.

Each region keeps their own mafia and pays it from regional contributions.

Dear Mr Grillo,
Not only little precious drops of humour here and there... I think you could never write too much against mafia and massonic infiltrations in public administration (at italian and european level). Please deal with this topic more often and help in developing a culture of transparancy in public services. Please help in creating a culture of whitstleblowing. Only through compulsory (and socially prised)denounciation of reprehensible administrative acts will make life for mafia more difficult.
Please launch another europeanwide campaign: clean up public administration!
