Italian Mps In Fist-Fight Over Pensions

Recommended Posts

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/financialcrisis/8851408/Italian-MPs-in-fist-fight-over-pensions.html

Tensions over Italy's attempts to avoid becoming the next victim of the eurozone debt crisis exploded in parliament on Wednesday, with MPs exchanging blows and insults over a pension reform plan.

The punch-up exposed the deep rifts within Italy over efforts to stimulate growth and tackle the country's €1.8 trillion (£1.56 trillion) public debt, as Silvio Berlusconi prepared to face a crucial European Union summit in Brussels.

The brawl broke out over sarcastic remarks made on television by Gianfranco Fini, the leader of the opposition Future and Liberty of Italy party, about the wife of Umberto Bossi, the leader of the devolutionist Northern League, whose support is crucial to the prime minister's political survival.

A sign of things to come across Europe?

What kind of political system is requires the support of an MP's wife for a PM's survival?

Tsk.
