Rome, July 25 - Beppe Grillo, leader of the
anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), redoubled his attacks
on the government Thursday, accusing the administration of
orchestrating a coup.
In a blog post titled "August's Coup d'état", Grillo said
"the real goal of this government is to destroy the Constitution
in order to change the rules of the democratic game and ensure
the parties their power and the State's trough".
House Speaker Laura Boldrini blasted the
comedian-turned-politician for not showing more respect for
public institutions on Wednesday.
"With his aggressive and destructive language, Grillo
continues to throw insults at the institutions," said Boldrini.
"His constant verbal attacks do not contribute, but only
serve to discredit them".
The M5S, which won around a quarter of the vote in
February's general election, said it wants to destroy the
current political party system, which it claims has brought
corruption and economic decline.
Grillo frequently communicates his political thoughts via
his often angry blog where no holds are barred.
Last month, for example, he said the current Italian
parliament was a useless "empty can of tuna" because lawmakers
did little more than rubber stamp bills and decrees presented by
Premier Enrico Letta's left-right government.
He also said the current parliament was illegitimate
because it was elected with a much-criticised election law that
he said is unConstitutional.
This week, meanwhile, he accused Letta of wanting to impose
a "government dictatorship".
