uffaa!! ora 'nnamo a vede come prosegue, dopo 'sto precanto napoletano:
"Il giorno prima delle elezioni una macchina di allegre e truccatissime “ragazze del popolo” si è fermata davanti a me e a un gruppo di amici chiedendoci al ritmo dell’House che usciva dallo stereo: “Guagliù ma a chi avimma vutà, a Berlusconi o…. a chill’ato?”
Some disturbing rumors around the Italian elections: Italian comedian Beppe Grillo (banned from TV since he mentioned the Parma fraud, years before it ever came to the Parmacrack) talks about the stink of a coup (d'état). And in fact, if Berlusconi loses the elections, this would mean he'd have to get to terms with Justice. Does he have an 'exit-strategy'?
I already have heard more rumors that tens of journalists in Sicily have been replaced by others over the last months. It must be that same old shuffle-a-bit-with-people and reinforce the make-them-write-what-you-want tactics.
And i just read this:
i would want to denounce what is happening in the poorest neighborhoods of the whole centre-south of Italy.
Local representors of Forza Italia are buying votes en-masse.
They contact the junkies and the poorest people (but also normal people who are part of certain circles) and promise 50 € per vote. The payment will take place during the elections. A responsible waiting outside the voting-office gives 50 € to all who made a cell-phone photo inside the cabin which proves they voted Forza Italia.
I myself have been contacted yesterday: i found myself with some friends when an acquaintance of us (who was part of our circle of friends some years ago) presented himself in suit with tie saying: "Guys, you want to earn some easy money?" In fact he even offered us a forfait of about 200 € if we managed to buy the votes of at least 50 people. I refused, but there are many persons who accepted, and are accepting.
Denounce these things by inviting the presidents of the voting-offices to deny the voters to take a cell-phone, or other photocameras inside the cabin."
Cellphones. The president of the voting office understood what happened when he heard a click: a young voter in a voting-office in the centre of Livorno was taking a photograph of his vote, after he had voted. When the boy came out of the cabin the president of the office made him cancel the photo.

Another thing that's going on since months now are fascist hit-squads going around to beat people up. Friday night, just before the elections, this happened at The Qube, a dance-bar in Rome, where an evening was organised by Vladimir Luxuria, a candidate for 'Rifondazione Comunista'.
You know Stone's 'Hidden History of the Korean War'?
