Leader Morelli calls for change, lower taxes

Away with 'political thieves', say young industrialists

Capri (Naples), October 26 - Italy's young entrepreneurs are no longer prepared to tolerate what they see as ignorance and theft among the country's politicians, Jacopo Morelli, president of industrialists' association Confindustria's Young Businessmen said on Friday. ''Away with the thieves, the ignorant and the incapable,'' he told a gathering of young industrialists on the island of Capri. ''We are disgusted by the idea of public office as a shortcut for getting rich, we rebel against this decay,'' continued Morelli, adding that the ''parasitic classes'' continue to ''erode public money even as 2,000 people ae losing their jobs every day''. ''We have the right to a change,'' he said. Italy has been hit by a raft of graft scandals in regional governments including Lazio, Lombardy, Piedmont, Emilia-Romagna, Campania, Molise and Sicily. The young leader also spoke out against the tax burden on businesses, which he said would exceed 68% in 2012. The government ''has recognised that Italians are showing a great sense of responsibility by accepting drastic and unpopular measures,'' said Morelli. ''If this is true, then there is a moral obligation to restore faith in the country immediately by substantially lowering tax pressure on workers and businesses that reinvest,'' he concluded.
