Is there anybody in the audience who has been following up on the latest events of Italian politics, inclusive of the not so edifying example of verbal exchange which has the taken place in the Upper Chamber (Senato, these are the elected individuals of socalled senior stature and maturity) after the vote which has brought down  the Government coalition?Here comes a  question found in the mail from  Gilgamesh, a friend of mine:Do Italian politicians represent a mere distortion   of the  Italian Electorate or ratheraren’t they the true mirror of the Italian people …and their character?Generalizing is an old evil but the picture of the political Italian scene over the years speaks by itself.  If “we get what we pay for”  “what to do”  in  order to make a wiser investment?
