Mario Monti, Italy's new prime minister, appointed a Government without a single politician on Wednesday.
How is it possible to have a Government made up of Technocrats without a single politician? Surely that is at the hub of all democracies, that at least we can be seen to pick a Government. Most people who read this shite would be of the opinion, that although we pick them, they don't follow our wishes or indeed their manifestos, well apart from the SNP, that is.
But the difference is on the face value of it, at least we can change them if we feel they're no longer up to the job. Italy has technocrats who have been imposed on the country by the German and French Governments to ensure that the Euro contagion does not spread any further, at least not as far as Germany and France. What right do the Merkozy twins have in imposing their people in a neighbouring countries Government? be in no doubt this is what has happened. If the Italian and Greek Technocrats had not been former bankers and deemed suitable by this pair, they would not now be in power.
Berlusconi had his bad points but he also had some good. But at least, he was elected by the people of Italy and he should only have been removed by those people. Can you imagine if this happened in Britain or even worse in a pro-European Scotland? What if the Queen made Mervyn King a Lord and he became Prime Minister? There would quite rightly be an uproar. That's more or less what's happened in Italy! Speaking of Mervyn King, is it not about time someone sached the fucker? He never seems to get his predictions right. He would be better off tossing a coin!
