Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Other members of Mr Berlusconi's centre-right ruling bloc appeared angry at Mr Prodi's declaration of victory.

"This is intolerable. What is this? A coup? It reminds me of South America. Auto proclamation (of victory) is constitutionally illegitimate," Industry Minister Claudio Scajola said.


It seems some people have a hard time seeing the difference between an Italy ruled by a former P2 member and South America. Scajola should be very careful about invoking such words. ;)

Peak oil is not an energy crisis. It is a liquid fuel crisis.
