Our Previti, Who art in Parliament…


I was hoping that Bertinotti, in between an appearance as Fiorello and a trip to Mount Athos would find the time. Or that our employees overcome by an attack of vomiting would throw him out. Instead, Previti, convicted for corruption of magistrates, is still there.
A latrine is a latrine. You cannot change it’s use. But every so often you need to clean it out, disinfect it.
Otherwise whoever makes use of it risks getting a nasty infectious disease, kick-back-itis, corruptitis, prevititis, mastellitis.
Parliament can certainly put up with the presence of Previti.
He’s one of them. But I can’t. It’s nothing personal. Previti is a gentleman of a certain age who has spent his life protecting the psycho-dwarf in the tribunals.
A full-time occupation. A responsible position. A worrying one. But his salary as a Parliamentarian, I don’t want to pay any longer. Let him pay for his cigars on his own, not with my taxes.
Previti is a symbol. The symbol of impunity. Of the law that is equal for the rich and different for all the others. If Previti stays there, every other Parliamentarian is responsible. And shows themselves to be worse than him.
They hide behind the procedures, priorities, agreements in commission, party solidarity. Previti is certainly a more impressive figure with his haughtiness, that he shows off without shame, than all the rest of Parliament.
All together passionately. Whoever touches Previti touches each of them. A proposal for the President of the Lower Chamber. Open each session with the sign of the cross and a prayer.

“Our Previti, Who art in Parliament,
Hallowed be Thy Surname.
Thy Kingdom come.
The Will of your patron be done, in the Lower Chamber as it is in the Upper Chamber.
Give us this day our daily ad personam laws.
And forgive us our corruptions,
as we forgive those who corrupt us.
And if you lead us into temptation,
save us with the prescrizione. Amen”

My God, what a country!
What a banana republic we have here!
I admire much of Italian life and culture, but the absence of a sence of general public morality is suffocating for those of us bred on liberty, equality and the right to live without paying bribes or watching mafiosi and criminals give orders in parliment to the police and GDF and SISMI etc. etc.

Grillo, you are a lonely voice in the wilderness, but you have my high regard !

Our CONSORTE, Who are still ON THE RUN...…

All together passionately. Whoever touches Mr CONSORTE touches each of us because "LA COOP siamo noi...ah, ah, ah, ah...".

A proposal for the President of the Lower Chamber. Open each session with the sign of the cross and a prayer.

“Our CONSORTE, Who art in Parliament,
Hallowed be Thy Surname.
Thy Kingdom of the COOP come.
The Will of your patron FASSINO be done, in the Lower Chamber as it is in the Upper Chamber.
Give us this day our daily ad personam LIBERALIZATION laws.
And forgive us our corruptions with "THE SLUMS' WILY",
as we forgive those who corrupt us.
And if you lead us into temptation,
save us with the PARDON. Amen”

Translation for Mrs ILARIA BARNETT even if she's nor scared of anybody apart from Prooof M I L L of course):


Tutti insieme appassionatamente. Chi tocca CONSORTE tocca ognuno di noi perche "LA COOP siamo noi". Una proposta per il Presidente della Camera. Apra le sedute con un segno di pace e con una preghiera.

"CONSORTE nostro, che sei ancora A PIEDE LIBERO (NONOSTANTE 50.000.000 € ESTERO SU ESTERO),
sia santificato il tuo cognome,
venga il tuo regno DELLE COOP,
sia fatta la volontà del tuo mandante FASSINO
come alla Camera coś in Senato.
Dacci oggi le LIBERALIZZAZIONI ad personam
rimetti le nostre corruzioni CON I FURBETTI DEL QUARTIERINO,
come noi le rimettiamo ai nostri corruttori,
e se ci induci in tentazione,
salvaci con l'INDULTO.

Well now it sounds better: what do you make of it FOLKS??

Please give me your feedback asap before being cut.

Have a good day.

Previti is an occasion to be ashamed for being Italian.

This time I have to agree with Joe and Giacomo,but as they say,you can blame Grillo for trying,better then nothing.ciao

Hello there,
I fully support and understand Mr. Grillo fpr this article, and believe me these type of individuals should not represent Italians in Parliament and anywhere else for that matter.

What I do find peculiar is the premises onto which this article is based!

First wrong premises, is considering Italy a Democracy (I highly resent this definition!) and second wrong premises is considering Italy an evolved/civil/modern society.

People dye in Hospitals daily? Run by the Government paid by taxes, although you can’t sue the Government but they run the investigation into their own administration. Approx 57 death only in 2007 (Ongoing Investigation, not a single guilty Party so far?)

Under every stone in Italy there is corruption, mismanagement, incompetence, while Politicians continually create new Parties?

And Mr. Grillo would like to send the above listed individual home, he should consider Italians lucky if his children don’t get hired by some Government Agency!

Please get real we are talking about Italy aren’t we!
