Italy Prime Minister-designate Mario Monti on Wednesday unveiled his new cabinet to deal with his country’s debt crisis.Wearing a poppy means bugger all, the best way to honour those who gave their lives for 'their tomorrows' is to continue the everlasting fight to preserve freedom and democracy:
The former EU commissioner named himself as Italy’s new economy minister.
Monti’s cabinet does not contain a single elected politician.
His ministers are drawn from the worlds of finance, academia, and law.
The 68-year-old does have the support of all major political parties.
Only the right-wing Northern League has refused to back him.
Monti must win a vote of confidence in both houses of parliament before he can officially take office.
"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." - Ronald Reagan
