Let’s Disinfect Parliament


08 September is the day to liberate ourselves from abusive parliamentarians. If we don’t give them a hand, on their own they won’t manage to get out of Montecitorio and Palazzo Madama. They are giving their all, and would like to contribute to the development of the country.
And enter into the third republic after undoing the second and the first. After scraping the barrel, they have re-exhumed Veltroni, “homo novus”. Ten years ago he was vice president of the Council in the first Prodi government.
When Blair was installed as Prime Minister in Downing Street, Our employees have to keep a family and the strong powers keep their employees by their balls. It’s a justifiable situation.
On September 8 I will start an initiative of a popular law with three points to disinfect parliament.

FIRST: No citizen can be a candidate if convicted or on trial.

SECOND: No Italian citizen can be elected for more than 2 legislatures. A rule that has retroactive validity.

THIRD: Candidates must be voted by citizens with direct preference.

I will send an email to every deputy and every senator with a request to sign up to these three points, or to reject them. I will publish the replies if there are any. Silence is dissent. Today I’m publishing the whole video of my speech in the European Parliament.

I'm not posting on the italian blog cause it's too full and my box just wont dare it.
On the video Beppe Grillo speaks about free software and it's funny to see that up to his head, on the main big screen, there's a windows xp screensaver. It's a pity he didn't notice that.

Thank you Antonio. After living 33 years in an English-speaking country I guess my English needs to be up to scratch.

I often wonder why people post in Italian here when it is specifically a blog written in English (doesn't Beppe Grillo has an Italian blog as well?)

Anyway I have a blog as well (not as well read as Bebbe's!) and I have written a post about this subject to spread the word.

The link is here:

I do agree with all of the three points. I will do whatever is in my power to support this iniative.
I will spread the word with fellow italians in my area.

partiamo da un punto: Beppe Grillo è un grande!

poi che lo abbiano avvistato in uno Yacht non sminuisce la forza delle sue (in molti casi anche le nostre posizioni)posizioni!

Mi domando solo come mai siamo di nuovo noi italiani in italiano a postare nella versione in inglese.

L'unico post scritto molto bene in inglese è di un italiano: Guido Tresoldi.

I would like to know how much people outside Italy was reading Beppe's comment.

Forse dovremmo fare propaganda anche noi che viviamo all'estero.

Facciamo rumooooore!!

That has to be not only noise!

Ah, dimenticavo: Prodi a casa!
Ma never again: Berlusconi! Please don't!

Interessante la storiellina del carciofo, del fornelletto e della macchina ibrida a idrogeno.

E' ibrido anche lo yacht?

Grillo sei solo un quaraquaqua', tiri acqua al tuo mulino come tutti gli altri:

"Sorpreso mentre sale su un'imbarcazione a gasolio. «Io ecofurbetto? Ho fatto di peggio: sono arrivato
col traghetto»"

hai stancato.

Without offending any Italian Citizen, I would like to remind to all Mr. Grillo’s bloggers that Italy and the Government running the Country is in the following condition:
1) 51% of GDP goes for the Country Current Expenses? (EU highest)
2) Deficit at 106% (EU highest?)
3) Stock Market has risen 1% in 6 months (Spain 6% to Germ 21%) (EU lowest)
4) Salaries EU lowest?
5) Taxes EU highest?
6) Politicians Salaries and perks EU highest?
7) Government approval rating at 26% (EU lowest?)
8) Crime (Read any daily newspaper, you decide?)
9) GDP grows at estimated 2% (1st Trimester 0.2%, EU lowest?)
10) Average Government last 12 months (59 Governments in 59 years?)
Mr. Prodi stated “Now Italy can grow”?
What’s there to cheer about?
What does it take to hold someone responsible?
What does it take for these Idiots to accept their Incompetence?
What does it takes to send them home and in the unemployment line?
Italy needs the Red Brigade to come to life again and instill fear into these Scum Bags called Politicians!
Cheers, long live The Italian Institutions

Noi Italiani dobbiamo renderci conto che se i governanti che abbiamo si trovano al loro posto e' solamente colpa nostra. Mi spiego meglio: ritengo che l'uomo politico italiano si senta totalmente al sicuro dalla, diciamo, "rabbia" popolare. LORO sanno che qualsiasi misfatto da loro compiuto non avra' conseguenze dirette e verra' insabbiato. Ebbene, NOI dobbiamo dimostrargli che questo concetto, da ora in poi, non sara' piu' vero. Dobbiamo fargli capire che le persone oneste sono stanche di essere prese per i fondelli, e che chi si ostinera' a farlo, paghera' per la sua disonesta'. Il primo passo e' di riunirsi in grande numero e dimostrare di fronte alle varie sedi istituzionali. Dire: "non ce la facciamo piu' a vivere in un paese senza giustizia!!!!!!!!"
Cosa ne pensate?

Beppe, while I agree with points 2 and 3, I am not sure about point one.

I am not familiar with the ins and outs of the Italian legal system but let's say a candidate was convicted when he was a teenager of stealing a car, or taking drugs and now he or she are in their 40's and have lead a law-abiding life since. I think that would be unfair that they would be prevented from becoming a candidate because of a conviction done in a different time in their lives.
