Thread: Giovanni di Stefano to stand in Euros?

  1. #1

    Default Giovanni di Stefano to stand in Euros?

    Self-professed "lawyer" Giovanni di Stefano, who has acted on behalf of such clients as Saddam Hussein, Arkan, Dutchy Holland and Dr. Crippen, has announced his intent to stand in Ireland in the 2009 European elections on an anti-immigration ticket.

    The Anglo-Italian was found in 2006 not to be qualified to practise law within this jurisdiction and attempted unsuccessfully to sue Chief Justice Murray as a result.

    TBH, I suspect a publicity stunt - hence the question mark.

    he's a head the ball.. but exactly the sort of person the Government will be delighted to see declaring that he is standing, so as to give them a comparison figure with which to brand all sceptics as nutters....
    1,197 people agree with me.. how many agree with you ?

    Not surprisingly, he didn't stand.

    A foreigner is standing on an anti-immigration platform in Ireland? The mind boggles.

    What next? The Pope standing for the Progressive Durexes? Dana standing on an aggressively liberal legalise-everything platform? etc.

    He is not particularl popular here either. Apparently he arrived her in the 80's pretending to be an Italian Count (I kid you not), arranged a heap of property deals, then pulled the plug when his background was questioned.

    An interesting individual...

    He may run. But a bag of hurls and a van load of Iraqi Refugees pulling up outside his office may deter him. I'll drive (I should have passed a test by 2009)
    We need to radically change every system that has enabled the wholesale destruction of the Irish landscape, rural and urban. There is no time for incremental step by step measures. The systems have failed utterly and the only hope for a real recovery requires the rule book to be torn up completely.
