Italy's votes Monday to oust sleazy politics and cronyistic society

The guardian has a interesting article on the surging sentiment for the Five Star Movement (M5S). The voters are sick and tired of the current parties and are rallying behind Beppe Grillo, the leader of the M5S. The sentiment here in the Italy is no different then the one in India with the AAP, the party of the Mango people lead by Arvind Kejriwal. When the BJP protests the origin's of the Sonia Gandhi, they were protesting against themselves. The Italian voters are no different then the voters in India and so are the Italian politcians who are no different then Indian sleazy politcians.  Berlosconi is a example high handed leadership which has cost the country dear which parallels the Gandhi family and Mr Vadra who appear to have suberverted the system to their advantage to no end.

Will this change in leadership in Italy go after the AgustaWestland bribery scandal and bring down all the middlemen in Italy, UK and India to justice ? If Italians want it, they could do it. After all Rome was never built in a day. For bloggers Beppe Grillo will be liked instantly as he is on of them. 


All the evidence suggests that, when the result of Italy's general election is known later on Monday, it will be a deafening – and sensational –Basta! (That's enough!). The publication of polls in the last two weeks of the campaign is banned in Italy. But results circulating on the internet showed an abrupt surge in support for the Five Star Movement (M5S), which wants to force a reboot, not just of Italy's sleazy politics but of its cronyistic society too.
For the first time in 20 years, we have seen an election that has not been hijacked by the sayings and doings of Silvio Berlusconi. Instead, it has been seized by another, equally controversial figure – the M5S's barnstorming frontman, Beppe Grillo.
