The country with left wing ex-pats

I would have thought it was almost a truism that national diasporas tend to be more inclined to vote right (in both senses...) than populations as a whole, but not, it would seem the Italians:

"The vote of Italians abroad turned out to be crucial in the April 2006 general election, where Berlusconi's centre-right coalition appeared to have won control of the Senate until the foreign votes were counted".

Seems rather mean of Italian ex-pats to inflict Romano Prodi on their less well-travelled compatriots. Given that 'Inglese Italianato è un diavolo incarnato', (first said of Sir John Hawkwood / Giovanni Acuto, apparently) just what does that make an anglicised Italian?
