+ - Italian vote on nuclear power: 94% against->

Submitted by
mdsolar writes "Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi suffered a trouncing in referendums Monday that wiped out his plans to return Italy to nuclear power and dismissed a law designed to keep him out of court.

The results, following hard on disastrous local election results, have already provoked a growing unease from his supporters.

Final results showed crushing votes of more than 90 per cent against the government in the four referendum questions: on nuclear power; on a law to give Berlusconi legal immunity; and two on water privatisation.

Official figures released early Tuesday by the interior ministry do not yet include votes cast by Italians living abroad.

But more than 94 per cent of voters slammed the government's plans for brand new atomic power stations, which had been one of Berlusconi's flagship policies."

I'd add dating sites and anybody who uses pop-up ads myself, but I think that would eliminate half the Web.

This is like the day I banned anyone under 21 from my apartment. Your liabilities, assorted legal conditions, and risks involved can gtfo of my life. I wonder if I can rob a bank by throwing in a "twilight grenade", some freakish multifaceted ball that projects the movie into the camera fields, thereby making taping illegal and inadmissible in court.

If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
