Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Let's give the Economist merit where they deserve it. It has always been adamantly against Berlusconi. Unlike most of the main stream press they have always pointed out that B is unfit to be "prime minister" of Italy. The Economist has never glossed over Berlusconi's mafia ties as most journals do. In fact the longest dossier ever published on a public leader by them was a detailed analysis of Berlusconi's rotten past and incompetence.
Two days before the elections the Economist published a cover dossier called "Basta" once again attacking B as unfit and incompetent, an individual singularly responsible for the actual strife and woes brought on Italy in five years of mismanagement.
