My favorite European politician (well, among the living) is on the news again (Guardian, UK):
Italy was abuzz with speculation that Silvio Berlusconi is planning a comeback – and could return to lead the right into an early general election, perhaps as standard-bearer of a party bent on withdrawing Italy from the euro.
I have always had a soft-spot for Silvio, but if he does decide to retake his House of Freedoms Party and lead the charge to get Italy out of the euro, he can save Italy (and maybe all of The eurozone) from the recessionary straight-jacket that is the single currency.
I, for one, sincerely hope he does.
