Here’s what the august British publication has to say about the recent election results:

In this week’s election a quarter of the electorate—a post-war record—did not even bother to show up. Of those who did, almost 30% endorsed Silvio Berlusconi, whose ruinous policies as a clownish prime minister are a main cause of Italy’s economic woes. And a further 25% voted for the Five Star Movement, which is led by a genuine comedian, Beppe Grillo. By contrast, Mario Monti, the reform-minded technocrat who has led Italy for the past 15 months and restored much of its battered credibility, got a measly 10%.

This result is a disaster for Italy and for Europe.

The euro was a bad idea, poorly executed. What doomed the euro was… the euro, right from start. The rest is just details.

What was the point of the Eurozone, anyway? It was all about centralized power and control, and the loss of national sovereignty. It was also about tempting countries to indulge in socialism at one another's expense. Of course it won't work, and the sooner the party's over, the better.
