Comments on: The losers in Italy’s election are already clear Sat, 03 Jan 2015 16:42:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: HHS123 Sun, 24 Feb 2013 21:44:23 +0000 Mr Kaletsky must be one of the worst columnists around. I have yet to read anything reasonable by him. In this case: not Merkel (or Germany) is at stake, it’s Italy. Economically such a strong and versatile country. Unfortunately with problems in politics, bureaucracy, nepotism and corruption. Not comparable to Greece (nothing really works, overblown state) or Spain (building and real estate bubble etc). Let’s assume the outcome of the election will be a coalition led by Bersani, partnered by Monti, then all this partisan and obviously anti-German ranting will be superfluous. As a Dutch citizen I can only say: I’m glad Germany exists. The UK – on the other hand – does not really help so far.

blame Berlusconi
or blame Grillo

or blame a small, helpless butterfly flapping its wings

anything except common-sense

never have italian elections achieved so much attention from the globalised vulgarity of the anglo-saxon mindset

it’s called making a distraction
from the disasters in their oinkonomies
