Che Palle...

Just in case anyone was inclined to forget whom exactly it is that Mr. Mills was helping to squirrel away his loot, or Tony chose to holiday with, Phil reminds us who former cruise ship crooner Silvio Berlusconi is relying upon to pass laws sanctifying, absolving and augmenting his various ill-gotten gains from decades of corruption. Let's think, corrupt business magnate in government with heirs of Mussolini, or magistrates who managed to smash, at no small risk to themselves, a cosy and incredibly lucrative alliance of political elites and organised crime which had systematically fleeced Italians for the previous forty years? It's apparently more difficult than you might think.
