ROME, June 11 (Reuters) - Football-crazy Italian state
workers who want to watch their country defend the World Cup
should take holiday rather than view the games at work,
according to civil service minister Renato Brunetta.
"Football is a passion, there are many others and they
should be respected," said Brunetta, who has made a personal
crusade of injecting efficiency and accountability into Italy's
supposedly lazy state workers.
"If one wants to indulge in one's passion, they should go on
holiday. Work is work, fun is fun," he said on Friday when asked
whether state employees could watch football while at work.
