The difference between British and Italian politics

Wrong fingered gesture by Italian prime minister!
In Britain when a minister of crown gets into political difficulties from which there is no return to effective office, he or she resigns. In Italy when a minister of the republic gets into political difficulties from which there is no return to effective office, he or she sticks it out with the help of cronies.

For Italian prime ministers such as Berlusconi, the full frontage of all Sainsbury's stores put side by side would pale into insignificance. Silvio Berlusconi has more front that any politician anywhere ever. And the Italian parliament has confidence in him!

Maybe when the Italian economy collapses in a heap these sycophantic believers in his political leadership maybe, just maybe, string him up!
