Italian Election Results
The BBC are distraught that their institutionally favoured left-wing party, led by a former communist ( are former nazis allowed similar rehabilitation?) hasn't gained a majority. They are narked that the "populist" (it's a democratic election darlings) Five Star Movement led by Beppe Grillo has got 25% of the votes. He is described as a clown or stand-up comedian. Er, that's a sine qua non in Italian politics, all politics in fact.
