Italian Elections: Why Nothing Is Gonna Change

Italian pundit Federico Punzi (not at all a leftist) explains why we should not expect any sort of radical reform of the Italian political, economic and social system, no matter who wins, and why I was right to stay away of the ballots. As of this writing, it looks like Berlusconi is leading 47% to 37%.

    I just read the article. “Italy is still waiting for a Thatcher, a Reagan, or at least a Blair.” Indeed, bummer that nothing´s going to change for you guys!

    I heard Mark Steyn on the radio today, and he mentioned that Berlusconi had won, but what really got my attention was, for the first time in a very long time, there will be no communists seated in Parliament.
    I don’t doubt Steyn, but is that true? If so, to me, that is the biggest news I’ve heard about your elections.

    Yes, that’s the biggest news, and some close relative of mine is sad for this. Can’t imagine how bad my discussion with this person has been..

    No…I couldn’t imagine having such a discussion with a close relative.
    Between us, I am elated to know that, even if for only one election cycle, the communist have no access to that type of power.
