"Gratefully"? Gi fa.
Berlusconi's EU Presidency comes to an end today. And you gotta read this EU rubbish.
One-eyed? Hoo-eee. You betcha.
His 6 months are up.
He has been unsuccessful in brokering agreement on voting rights in an expanded EU (or successful in supporting the Poles and the Spaniards against the French and Germans - depends on your priorities which way you look at it).
And he has been successful in offending the Germans and introducing some much needed recollection of WWII and nationalist philosophy.
Note in the article how Berlusconi is lambasted for not being evenhanded in the Pelestinian-Isreali thingy. That's an EU position - to be evenhanded. But Silvio is President of Italy. And the Italian position is to side with the Jews. End. Of. Story. They might have killed Christ, but stickin' it to the Son Of God is as aggressive as they've ever gotten, unlike a certain other faith, practised by persons who are not Jews, if you catch my drift.
Church of the Nativity, kids. Church of the Nativity.
Gloves come off.
And notice how he's lambasted for not getting EU consensus following Iraq.
That's Silvio's fault?
It couldn't maybe the fault of the damned French and Germans and Belgies who cannot admit they played a disgusting role in that debate, motivated solely by their anti-American feeling.
God help us, eh?
Dya reckon the Fightin' Irish might get an easier ride?
