We who are about to dicker, exclude you

Il Primo Ministro Renzi challenges their patriotism (and their chronometrics);

Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi slammed trade unions on Friday after a temporary closure of Rome's Colosseum left hundreds of tourists stranded outside.

Unionised workers at the Roman amphitheatre held a 2-1/2 meeting in the morning, keeping the gates locked until they had finished their discussions.

They said the stoppage was within their rights, but confusion reigned outside the Colosseum, with signs in English telling tourists that the site would not re-open until 11 p.m., rather than 11 a.m.
Darn right un-Italian, he said. Like taking only half an hour for lunch.
