Bari, January 18 - Italian comic and political gadfly Beppe Grillo called for the end of labor unions at a meeting of his anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S) on Friday. "I want a State with balls. Let's throw out the unions, which are an antiquated structure like the political parties," he said. "Companies need to be made up of those who work". Grillo, who has slipped from second to fourth in the election race amid claims of an autocratic leadership style, is on what he calls his "tsunami" political tour for the February vote.
