Grillo says Monti 'morally retarded' and doesn't know it (ANSA) - Rome, January 16 - Outgoing Premier Mario Monti is "morally retarded" and does not even realize his faults, Beppe Grillo, leader of the anti-establishment Five Star Movement (M5S), charged Wednesday.

Grillo, on what he calls his "tsunami" political tour for the February elections, posted the criticism of Monti on his Twitter feed.

"Monti is morally retarded," tweeted Grillo, a former comedian turned politician.

"He does immoral things, but does not recognize it".
