    Thank you Edward, David and John.That was an excellent press conference, just a pity that so few press representatives from other EU member states were not there to fire questions and report back exhaustively about us in their respective columns.
    Perhaps in future forums it would be worth reminding interlocutors that one of the worst cases among ‘lettori’ in Italy is at the ‘Orientale’ in Naples where lettori have never ever had a pay rise since 1990, are still on circa 500 euros a month, and fast becoming a depleted and ultimately extinct species!

    Will the Italian government take notice? Italian universities are taking the lack of interest by the italian State as a green light to apply racially based legislation. The Commission needs to act now.
