“The political situation in Italy is very bad

but not serious.”

Ennio Flaiano

From: Diario Notturno – 1956

While Standard & Poor’s downgrades once more Italy (we are now a BBB Country!!!) reminding us that our economic troubles ain’t ended, the Italian Parliament is (as usual) stuck with MrB’s troubles (and this time for real because today the parliamentary session has been stopped, also thanks to the Left that graciously turned its head away).

This time the problem is that the Highest Court (Supreme Court of Cassation) has set 30 July as the date for MrB’s Tax Fraud final appeal. It’s decidedly too soon! This way the case won’t be expired under statute of limitation and, if the Court will uphold MrB’s conviction  (four years in jail and a five-year ban from public office that will also deprive our young hero of his beloved knighthood), he will have no further right of appeal. Each and every one in his Party is upset by this scandalous Italian justice efficiency!

Thanks heaven, for the sake of our poor democracy, today Beppe Grillo, the Web guru for once offline (and after a short holiday spent in the not exactly proletarian Sardinian Emerald Coast), met in Rome Mr  Giorgio Napolitano, the President of the Italian Republic, to order him to tell us the truth about the economic situation, to ask for new election soon and to tell the world that He, a man who could spend the rest of his life laid on a beach enjoying the easy life and all of his millions but who loves us too much to leave us alone (oh heavens, another one…), He is the one to thank if in this situation we are not shooting one another like in Egypt and democracy is (temporarily) safe. Not to forget that he also remind to those #*#@*#!!! Italian journalists that one day, when the 5Stars revolution will win,  they (and especially those among them working at RAI, the Italian Public Television) will be (democratically) sacked…

As usual in Italy the situation is very bad, but not serious… but I confess that I’m a little bit worried.

 

“La situazione politica in Italia è grave

ma non è seria.”

Ennio Flaiano

Da: Diario Notturno 1956

Mentre Standard & Poor’s ci declassa un’altra volta (ora siamo un Paese da BBB!!!) ricordandoci che i nostri problemi economici sono tutt’altro che superati, il nostro Parlamento è bloccato (come al solito) dai problemi di MrB (e stavolta è veramente bloccato visto che oggi sono stati sospesi i lavori parlamentari, anche grazie al PD che si è fatto graziosamente da parte).

Questa volta il problema è che la Cassazione ha osato fissare l’udienza per il definitivo appello del processo Mediaset al 30 Luglio, troppo presto per fare in modo che la condanna a 4 anni di prigione e 5 di interdizione dai pubblici uffici (che allontanerebbe il nostro giovane eroe dalla politica attiva e lo priverebbe persino dell’amato titolo di Cavaliere) possa essere evitata grazie alla prescrizione. Uno scandaloso spettacolo d’efficienza e celerità della giustizia italiana che ha indignato il PDL al completo.

E meno male che a difendere la democrazia è arrivato Beppe Grillo, il Guru del Web, che finalmente in libera uscita dalla rete (e dopo qualche giorno di – meritato – riposo in Costa Smeralda) ha incontrato il presidente della Repubblica per intimargli di dirci la verità sulla condizione economica del paese, per chiedere lo scioglimento delle Camere, per ricordare al mondo che solo grazie a lui, che potrebbe starsene sempre al mare con la panza all’aria a godersi i suoi milioni ma non lo fa perché ci ama troppo (cielo! un altro…), non ci prendiamo a schioppettate come in Egitto e la democrazia è salva, e infine per far memoria a quei #*#@*#!!! dei giornalisti italiani che farebbero meglio a stare in campana perché, quando la rivoluzione pentastellata vincerà, loro (e specialmente quelli della RAI) si ritroveranno tutti (democraticamente ) disoccupati…

Come al solito in Italia la situazione è grave, ma non è seria… io però un po’ inizio a preoccuparmi.
