Renzi has to pull many rabbits out of the hat to prove his fast-talking campaign was more than hot air, and now the right is so weakened, the MV5 will be there to keep nudging and poking Renzi in the left direction against the fatcat lobbies pulling him right (wrong!).  

Make that 20 years 2-3, in other words...

Well part of me thinks they faked some of the counting, the other half sighs and thinks the electorate is mentally disturbed enough to vote in the new shiny wonderboy now that the Old Lecher has lost grip. 1994 redux...
