Someone reign him in! (Apr-09)

The faux pas(s) of Silvio Berlusconi never cease to amaze me.

First his compliments on Mr Obama’s fine suntan, then a reproach from the Queen and his snub of Merkel… ill-mannered and ill-considered; but I can handle that.

This week however he’s giving wholly inappropriate advice to L’Aquila earthquake victims to ‘see it like a weekend of camping’, and in this morning’s paper we have news of his flirting with a L’Aquila doctor. And still the Italian press love him.

Please. PR advisor. Somebody. Reign him in.
