Berlusconi vows to arrive for work as Italian PM

Barbara McMahon in Rome
Monday April 24, 2006
The Guardian


Still refusing to concede defeat in the Italian general election, Silvio Berlusconi put on another bravura performance at the weekend by serenading his supporters and then threatening to paralyse the incoming government.

The former cruise ship crooner took to the stage in a hotel restaurant in Trieste in northern Italy, singing a medley of Neapolitan ballads. He also treated his audience, who applauded wildly, to a song he said he had composed in the wake of the election result, in which he talks about going to live on a tropical island. snip

Tony Blair and the leaders of China, Russia, the US, Argentina, Japan and all of the major European countries have formally telephoned Mr Prodi to offer congratulations. Mr Berlusconi has shrugged off the calls, saying they reflect Italy's good standing on the world stage.

1. You know,
We really must stop allowing crackheads, psychopaths and idiots from assuming public office.

4. If I could, Erika,
I would drag him out kicking and screaming. Unfortunately, it is up to a group of people...The AMerican population.

6. "a song...in which he talks about going to live on a tropical island."
Perhaps he should consider St. Helena.
