    now or before? Why don't Italians all move to Argentina where they can be equally as corrupt and still have dreadful rulers.

    Probably because ALL Italians are not so corrupt. Maybe Jega Nord wasn't such a bad idea, if only they could force Rome to take Berlusconi off theur hands. Grillo's group has been quite adept at protesting, but it would appear that now in office, they have no idea what to actually DO with the power they have. They can't simply rally and carry signs outside the parliament while refusing to join a coalition that possibly could be useful in addressing Italy's serious issues. As for the sheep who keep voting for Berlusconi, one can only imagine where their heads actually are.

    Please, Britain, lend that Osbourne prodigy of yours to Italy for a while! He'll work miracles! He'll turn Italy into Greece, and then have everyone blaming the weather!
