Technical? New Italian government run by corporate, banking lobby: Communists

Commenting on new Italian Government announced this afternoon, Paolo Ferrero, Communist Refoundation, said:

“We don’t like this government: it is an expression of powerful vested interests from that world that has brought us to this crisis.

This government, tied to banks, corporations, to private universities, to the usual suspects is against the needs of the country.

Italy needs to  question European policies that are at the centre of the [financial] speculation while this government is the direct expression of the powerful and of the neo-liberal ideology that has forged those mistaken policies.

[The choice of ministers] strengthens our opposition to this government, which far from being technical is a government of the  [corporate/banking] lobby and powerful vested interests.

The people should have decided and the decision not to hold early elections is a grave error for which unfortunately the Italians will pay.”
