Why Italys big change might just be more of the same ..??

grillo-berlusconi_2497862cWhere does Grillo and his Five Star Movement go ?
So far he has been clear they wont take or support a side and now that they might want the Lire back. Its hard to see that one being possible without a referendum. And it seems he didnt really say that anyway but added Maybe and Might to it – see Grillos a proper politician now.

Its a bind for Grillo – your a succesful anti – establishment politician you get a substantial vote and you really are then stuffed. The torture of it all. Hes inside the system now whether he likes it or not – Oh how Gramsci would have loved this one , by taking the votes and doing nothing he is actually propping up the status quo. The old boys will continue with the dominant hegemony of Italian politics.


And as above the President may appoint another technocratic Government , to handle the crisis you understand . The crisis that democracy gave it. And if thats a conundrum how about the split in the Five Star Movement …some members are campaigning for them to support the left bloc. Is this as good as it gets ? Who knows …but when the economist magazine mock you , you must be doing something right !
