Grillo commends Napolitano's tough talk to German politician

Rome, February 28 - Beppe Grillo, the comedian whose Five Star Movement won the most seats in Italy's lower house of parliament after elections February 24-25, commended President Giorgio Napolitano for taking a stand against the head of Germany's Social Democratic Party (SPD), who on Wednesday called Grillo and Silvio Berlusconi "clowns". After the remarks, Napolitano - who is on a trip to Germany - cancelled a meeting with the SPD leader, Peer Steinbruek, and said the politician's comments were "completely inappropriate". Referring to Napolitano's action, Grillo - considered a controversial figure for his populist, anti-austerity views - wrote in his blog Thursday: "In these years he (Napolitano) has been criticized for many choices, in my views mistaken, but yesterday in Germany I saw, at the end of his mandate, my president of the Republic. An Italian who stood up straight. Hats off".
