Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Even though I have lived in Italy for 20 years now, I still have trouble understanding these stories through the newspapers, so thank you for explaining this so clearly. In particular I now understand better why Berluska doesn't want to be a witness. Although I guess that if he lied  under oath, he would just become defendant in yet another infinite trail, so what's the difference?

I don't really expect you to be able to explain the unexplainable, but still I have one really big question: why does Lega Nord stay with him??? It should be clear that they won't get anything out of the government except for a bit of token harassment of gypsies. The "federalismo" doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Lega Nord has already been punished at the last local elections. Even Calderoli noticed, and he doesn't give the impression of being the sharpest tool in the box.

Real capricorns don't believe in astrology.
