Prime Ministerial Resignations


#1

2 in one day?

Matteo Renzi and John Key?


#2

I would be happy to see John Key go (Wasn’t he a neo-con? Austerity and all that?), but with the way populism has been kicking up as of late thats more than a little worrying. @Kimmo can you speak more to what’s happening with your neighbors government right now?


EDIT: Just remembered why I really don’t like him, his government was implemented in the Snowden leaks. He played a large part in creating the current surveillance state in New Zealand and increasing the sharing of intelligence with the NSA (through Five Eyes). Also this:

Key has been a leading advocate of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), having also supported the Trans-Pacific Strategic Economic Partnership (TPSEP). Both agreements provide for a multilateral free trade area in the Asia-Pacific region.

NFI, sorry. I’m guessing old tarnished douchebag just needs replacing with fresh shiny douchebag…

Italy goes through PMs as often as many change underpants. It’s hardly even news when it happens.


#5

What is it, 63 governments since Mussolini?

In this case it is a bigger deal than usual, because the referendum vote is a ticket with which the populist anti-immigration right can ride into power. Since Italy is a major portal for refugees from sub-Saharan Africa, this will probably result in many innocent people dying. Hopefully the Italian public will decide that with Renzi gone they don’t need to vote “protest”.

Apparently Mr Bunga-Bunga fancies a comeback. But maybe he could just be made the Italian ambassador to the US or something?

Maybe he’ll split the moron vote with 5 Star and help someone sober win. As 5 Star is trying to be the honest face of idiocracy, I think you’d see a lot of anti-Berlusconi vitriol coming out of them.
