    It was the vote of no confidence for him today.
    He won by 3 votes...
    People in Rome are not happy, it's getting kinda messy.
    That's it really. If you have anything else, please post [​IMG]

    I was going to say "He won by a Shlong", but I realized how bad that joke was.

    Who is Berlusconi?

    He didn't get "voted back in", he just didn't get voted out.

    I think Dylan Moran summed up Berlusconi best when he said of him:

    'He's so crooked he sleeps on a spiral staircase. So thoroughly corrupt every time he smiles, an angel get gonorrhea. He's had so many facelifts that his face has moved to the top of his head, you have to get on a stepladder to watch him lie.'

    That pretty much sums him up, to be honest. The man pretty much symbolises everything that can go wrong in politics, nay human life as a whole, and yet he's still in power. Proof if it were ever needed that 'the system' doesn't work.

    EDIT: Typo. Head doesn't have two A's in it Blaze, you dumbass.

    It really amazes me how he's survived. Berlusconi is corrupt as fuck though I imagine the oppositition are a mess if they can't topple him.

    Ahh Berlusconi. I think Italy just vote him in to see what will happen next. The equivalent in Britain would be letting Boris Johnson run the country to see what happens.

    If they really did for that, it'd be funny. Instead they voted him because almost the entire country is made up of idiots [​IMG]
