Keep your context on

26 Feb

The 1975 Italian election ( local and regional ) were held against a background of two things. First the law change that gave women equality and secondly Violence. Several deaths including an anti-fascist demonstrator who was run over by the police. The Communists received significant vote increase and the left alliance looked strong. They took control in many regions.
Later that year the American ambassador said the US would oppose any PCI involvement in the Italian Government.
The 1976 National election featured even more violence and deaths. The PCI received a record vote.

I put this merely as context for the current Italian election result. A comedian has gained a good share of the vote and the bond market is wetting itself. Come on 2013 keep your context on.
