Pazzo? Is that the right word here?

Well, it had to happen, I suppose. Il Presidente del Consiglio, Silvio Berlusconi, has now claimed that the European Elections, where his party, Forza Italia, scored only 21% of the votes, was rigged. Yes, I'm being serious here - he (il Presidente del Consiglio, Silvio Berlusconi) is claiming that the left-wing political parties in Italy have it "in for me" and he has now claimed that some ballot papers marked in favour of his Forza Italia party were cancelled by officials.

Former left-wing prime minister Massimo D'Alema said Berlusconi's comments were "a desperate gesture by somebody who is in trouble". He added, "If a prime minister reaches this point, the best thing is to leave him alone in his delirium".

Ah well. It's only Burlesquoni...............
