In his analysis the 39 years old Florentine politician identified in €32b the cuts to the public administration's budget to be applied in three years. But attached to the lay off of hundred of thousands civil servants there is no provision to extend the much needed public offices opening hours to the afternoons.
There will also be - for the first time in the Italian culture the introduction of the term 'benefits' - for an amount of €80 to be applied to workers with an yearly gross income up to €25k but oddly enough no measures to support those small and individual entrepreneurs that stopped trading (1000/day) or those over 50s 'esodati' (260,000) people out of work left with no welfare support at all before they can draw a pension. But not all have that strength and so far some 600 entrepreneurs have taken their lives. A shabby record for the land believed to lead in social justice and home of the Holy Christian Church.
A really shameful thing to do for someone who holds in his person, beside the charge of Prime Minister and Mayor of Florence, the leadership of the Democratic Party (formerly the Communist Party) or the head of workers' Party Unions.
Amongst all his measures announced by Renzi the abolition of the Senate - without even a parliamentary debate over the millenarian institution, pride of Italian democracy and indeed firstly introduced by the Romans to democratic world's countries - is the one that raised eyebrows in many, perplexed about his constitutional nous.
