    Possibly crooked (allegedly, etc), definitely lecherous, hysterically vain and somehow still in power.

    Harry & Paul have a character in their latest series who bares a few similarities to Silvio and shows how he's perceived here at least.

    I was down filling up the car at the local servo this morning and saw she's on the cover of this month's Men's Style magazine. Still hot at her age. Would in a heart beat.

    Last year an Italian lecturer taught us that, "You can't ever use a fact without referencing it. Unless you're Silvio Berlusconi. Then you can pretty much say whatever you want and everyone will be like 'wow, really?'"

    And Dylan Moran described him as the only man in the world so crooked he sleeps on a spiral staircase.

    Probably fortunate that he seems more interested in being lecherous than fascist most of the time.

    I've personally never voted for Silvio.. But during my most of my life he has been my prime minister. Honestly when i was younger i sort of liked Berlusconi, being: AC Milan chairman, big politician, tv owner, full of ladies, really realy rich... the man to become

    Today i still don't get how many people don't realize who he is and what he has done and still continue to vote for him. The biggest problem is no other political party has any leader big enough to go against and beat Silvio.. Only person who stands half a chance may be Fini who used to be in his same party-

    Probably the Italian goverment will fall in un month time but will we get rid of Berlusconi?

    His antics are amusing, but it's the kind of thing where I doubt I'd be laughing if he was my PM.

    Preferred your first post, LHC. Original spam post deleted though, mainly just to make you look silly.
