M5S accuse Bersani of repeating old rhetoric (see related story) (ANSA) - Rome, March 27 - The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S) accused centre-left leader Pier Luigi Bersani of regurgitating old rhetoric when he appealed for its representatives to back a "government of change" led by him on Wednesday.

"We've been hearing these things for 20 years," said Roberta Lombardi, the M5S's House whip.

"While you were speaking it seemed to me that I was listening to a transmission of (political talk show) Ballaro'. "I've been voting for 20 years and hearing the same things and they are never put into practice".
