Assault on the train


Today Iím writing about the TAV, but in reality Iím referring to something else. To the waste of the Stateís money. About the fact that public employees are not reduced to misery when they throw away our money. And if they donít pay it back, then it must be the parties that they belong to that pay back.
Those that speculate on the big engineering works, on the viaducts, on the doubling of the motorway lanes and the biggest prize of all: the TAV. The one with the fat flowing over. But if itís flowing over, who is there to lick it up?
Professor Ponti, one of the most important European experts in the sector has been interviewed by Piera Ricca. His observations about the TAV are incredible. Someone must land up in prison or give back the money to the citizens. Perhaps with a 20 year mortgage with bank collateral from the parties. All have one or two or three.
The high velocity costs have trebled in relation to the estimate. It has cost three times as much. No one has done anything. Money that has been filched from our pockets. From research, from pensions, from play schools. Itís a question of tens of thousands of millions of Euro. Itís enough to relieve hunger in Africa. The TAV in Val di Susa is a symbol of this theft. Of this expropriation of our taxes. It costs 13,000,000,000 Euro.
One. Just one is to be given by the European Community. The rest has to come from us. And the extraordinary thing is that itís of no use! The transport of goods has been in decline for years. The current section, the one that already exists could have three times the traffic on it. Without doing anything. They tell us that we have a public debt that is not governable, that we have to pay taxes, that thereís not the money for social services and then we throw down the lavatory tens of thousands of millions of Euro.
The next Finance Law let the parties and the administrators that have diddled us out of our money, let them pay for it.

While I do appreciate the promotion, I am but a lowly Assistant General Counsel at Accela. I am the top-ranked Colin Samuels here, however! It was great to finally put faces to blogs last night; we all owe Professor Goldman a debt of thanks for pulling us all together in a non-virtual manner after all this time! Take care.
