Uh oh...here comes more from P.I.I.G.S. (mainly the I for Italy). The Telegraph is reporting that violent protests have erupted as a result of a 3 vote win by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi as he has staved off the vote of no confidence. Central Rome is apparently on lock down.
So far this year, we have seen riots in Spain, London, Iceland, Ireland and Portugal. I guess it's only a matter of time before we will see austerity riots in the USA because there is no chance in hell that people will willingly give up their free lunch.
