“Fiddle-dee-dee!”

From: Gone with  the Wind – 1939

Living here is just like being in a tragic film with some very funny comic interludes. While the politic is still discussing the budget for next years (and alas we can hear once again talking about  Health Care System’s cuts), next weekend has been gladden by the visit of the Argentinian ex-football champion Diego Armando Maradona, who used to play with S.S.C. Napoli from 1984 till 1992. The ex-Pibe de oro (this was is nick name, meaning golden kid) interviewed in a RAI TV show (RAI is the Italian Public Television) by the famous TV host Fabio Fazio, he made what we call the “umbrella gesture” (HERE, more or less like giving the finger) to the Agency collecting government revenues (so that in a sense this gesture was for all of us). He owns to Italy about 40 million euros. Yesterday Mr Fassina, deputy Economy Minister, called that gesture something “miserable”, and even the Prime Minister Enrico Letta said that he didn’t like it at all. But the prize for the best indignant reaction goes to Mr Renato Brunetta, economist, former Minister of Public Administration and Innovation in last MrB government and above all very important member of PDL party who didn’t like much the TV host in question and would do everything to avoid that MrB would be thrown out of the Senate (yes, he’s still a Senator!) after the sentence for tax fraud (!!!). He said: “I made a parliamentary question to the The Parliamentary Commission on Public TV about the indecent episode happened, with Maradona making the umbrella gesture and elevated to tax evasion sponsor. Even more serious is Fazio’s behaviour”.

Feddle-dee-dee!!!!

“Perdindirindina!”

Rossella O’Hara

Da: Via col Vento – 1939

Vivere da queste parti a volte somiglia a un film drammatico intervallato da esilaranti parentesi comiche. Mentre prosegue l’iter della legge di stabilità (e ahinoi si sente riparlare di tagli alla sanità), lo scorso weekend nel Belpaese è stato allietato dalla visita di Diego Armando Maradona. L’ex pibe de oro in una trasmissione RAI, intervistato da Fabio Fazio ha deliziato gli spettatori facendo il gesto dell’ombrello al fisco italiano (e va detto un po’ a tutti noi): per tasse non pagate deve al nostro paese una cifra pari quasi a 40 milioni di euro. Ieri il viceministro dell’economia Fassina ha subito definito il gesto “miserabile” e in serata persino il Presidente del Consiglio Enrico Letta ha detto che quel gesto non gli è piaciuto per niente. Ma il premio per la migliore reazione indignata va a Renato Brunetta, l’autorevole membro del PDL pronto a tutto per difendere MrB condannato in via definitiva per (ohibò!!!) frode fiscale, che nel pomeriggio di ieri ha detto: “Ho depositato un’ interrogazione alla commissione di Vigilanza Rai, sull’episodio indecente accaduto ieri sera a ‘Che tempo che fa’, con Maradona impegnato nel gesto dell’ombrello, ed elevato così a testimonial dell’evasione fiscale. Più grave ancora è il comportamento di Fazio”.

Perdindirindina!!!!
