An article in yesterday’s Financial Times brought me joy: MORE SILVIO BERLUSCONI ACTION!
How are you not going to get happy when you read about “The Berl” teaming up with the National Alliance party?
Although the National Alliance traces its roots to Italy’s fascist past, (Gianfranco) Fini has developed close ties with Israel, in particular since denouncing fascism in a 2003 visit to Jerusalem. Last week he was a guest at celebrations in Rome of Israel’s 60th anniversary, along with Richard Perle, a prominent US neo-conservative.
It’s all good!
Mr Fini also told the Financial Times that if his centre-right alliance with Silvio Berlusconi returned to power in elections in 10 days’ time – as opinion polls indicate — Italian policy would be to expel large numbers of gypsies and other European Union citizens.
Only in Italy, kids, only in Italy!
