Don't let banks call us crazy, says Grillo

EU 'people-phobic' figures 'bandy about the word populist'

(ANSA) - Salsburg, September 19 - The founder of the Five Star Movement (M5S), the comedian Beppe Grillo, has lashed out at banks and those he accuses of overusing the word "populism".
    "Don't let banks call us crazy," he said. "Don't let their pathetic representatives criticize our voting choices. The past few weeks have been marked by a psychiatric crisis at the world level. Figures at the European level are blaming common people, the population.
    "These figures are simply 'people-phobic', since common people still manage to be unpredictable. And then they yell 'populists'," he wrote in a post on his popular blog.
