Mystery ad focuses on Italian politics

(Who posted this?) I don't know. All it says in the advert is, the salary is extremely competitive and a successful candidate will be able to bring along friends and relatives. The ad also says no particular skills are required at all. Obviously it is a spoof but it's very clever because it has everyone here talking. It reflects the general disdain Italians have towards the political class. (They don't mention there that it's a temporary job most likely because government jobs are not long lasting). No, but if you're there for two years you have a pension for life which is not very sensible. There's a feeling in the country that you need some change but there isn't any sign of change and that's what people are frustrated about. There are also quite a few politicians who have charges of crime or corruption.
