Corruptions the big story but what next?

The headlines in Austria have been dominated for months now with one political scandal after another. Of all the parties that sit in the current Federal Parliament only the Greens seem to be free from involvement in one or more cases of alleged corruption. The German newspaper Spiegel in its online International (English) edition, has three very good articles about the problems here in the Alpine Republic. There is an interesting reference to Italy in the 1990’s where corruption scandals ultimately saw the disbanding of the old traditional parties and new ones formed, but I suspect that won’t be the outcome here when this has all finally been washed out of the system.
