Thread wreckers usually end up wrecking themselves... haven't you noticed?
(Which is probably why they post in the first place.)
It is an interesting development.
Or is it?
Whenever there's a whiff of recession in the world, people - and especially the Italians, or so it seems - go for the "safe" choice, meaning anyone
who promises them "order" (even if it is of the oppressive kind).
I can't say it isn't understandable.
Of course after Prodi's recent failure there weren't very many options left in Italy - but still...
In fact that's probably the most "interesting" (and worrisome) facet of this process: the polarisation of the Italian public opinion allows for
very few political options (= candidates).
It may be the "better the devil you know" phenomenon...
