Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well, i think here in italy it's a bit different. i don't cruise many italian blogs, but my perception is that beppe grillo's blog is definitely having some political repercussions.

the italian version is very heavily commented, (1000+) comments a thread last time i checked in, and beppe is nothing if not radical.

the really curious thing is that according to the NYT, beppe's is the 5th most read in the world, and unless they're talking about the english language one, in which case there are an amazing number of lurkers, (and a sickening infestation of troll posts lately), or they're talking about the italian one (same text from beppe), in which case that still surprises me, unless people blog less than i think worldwide, or there are again bizarre ratios between commenters and readers.

i don't think anyone else is blogging here to much political effect, but perhaps de Gondi would know better...

interesting diary, thanks, Martin
