There has been a lot of moaning about the bill on publications announced by the Italian Government (no English there, sorry) on requiring any blog and Internet journal (in law language, “any website with a purpose of information, education, dissemination or entertainment“, Art. 2, Par. 1 of the above mentioned law) to subscribe to a national register (Art. 6 and 7 of the same law), as well as to name an editor in chief responsible for the information published.
As we all know, Italian governments don’t last long. Here is then our modest proposal for the new Italian government, a government in 3D: durable, determined and, most of all, strong (well, the third D got lost in translation).
According to the typical Italian chauvinist tradition, there won’t be too much room for women. As a matter of fact, there will be only one, but look at which seat she’s got!
Update (23.2.2007 11:10): Talks are still on going, possible modifications (and addition of ministries) are expected in the following hours
Update (27.2.2007 22:17): Despite useful and fruitful consultations, the President of the Italian Republic has decided not to sack the present government. And that’s a pity, if he had read what kind of government we had built up, maybe he would have chosen otherwise. Therefore our government will go underground. We like darkness anyway.
