Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has resigned amid jeers from hundreds of protesters shouting buffoon, clown and Mafiosi.
What an uncivilised lot.
Here in our banana republic when the criminal Haughey was forced to resign in disgrace he was warmly praised by most of our gombeen party leaders.
Most of the media elevated the criminal to the status of national statesman excusing his crimes by arguing that he had done more good than bad.
When the scumbag Ahern was also forced to resign in disgrace he too was elevated to the status of national hero by the body politic.
When the then leader of the Opposition, Enda Kenny, suggested that perhaps there should be an election he was roundly condemned, not just by Ahern’s confederates in treason, but also by the same section of the media who agreed with Ahern’s description of the criminal Haughey as being a patriot to his fingertips.
The Italians are light years ahead of the Irish when it comes to recognising and reacting to corrupt and traitorous politicians.

Beware the judgement of the mob!
Don’t get me wrong. I don’t support Berlusconi or Haughy or Aherne in any way but the masses can be easily deluded and the replacements are often just as potentially corrupt. Part of the reason Fine Gael/Labour are not as corrupt as Fianna Fáil is because they were not in power often enough or as long enough – but give them time. They are already making “progress” – see

TO THE F.G. AND LABOUR PARTIES I WOULD QUOTE A LINE FROM A MUSICAL. “GOOD OLD JUDAS,WELL DONE JUDAS”.
