    This is the bit I liked best…..

    “After a public rebuke last year from his wife for flirting with showgirls, in which she claimed her ‘dignity’ had been undermined and that her husband’s behaviour was ‘unacceptable’, Berlusconi appeared to suggest all was well at home, describing her in an interview last week as, ‘intelligent, beautiful and indulgent’, and adding that she was standing firmly behind his bid for office.”
