A bit here and a bit there
Renzi is making announcements left right and centre. Lots of reforms we are told. Unfortunately this translates as lots of announcements with powerpoint slides and Matteo ad-libbing for hours. The ‘reforms’ are minor tweaks, so minor as to be ineffectual and easily cancelled. The latest is for RAI, the state tv company which Renzi has decided is to be run on the BBC model. Except that it won’t, because it remains full of politicial appointments and has no clear mandate on what it is meant to do. All this fanfare for something akin to tweaking the company logo – which makes no difference to anyone, but costs a fortune in printing new letterheads .
