I hear on the news that there's uproar in Italy as a stand up comic got 25% of votes in the elections


An anti-Euro protest party, the Five Star Movement, headed by comedian Beppe Grillo, has obtained 25% of the votes in the Italy parliamentary polls for the Lower House.

For Italy and the rest of Europe, the main worry is the probability of a hung parliament :-(

I think that's exactly what they've got. My vote doesn't seem to have counted for much.
