That's why he wants to setup a special commission of enquiry. Berlusconi also said one investigate Giorgio Napolitano's role in the crisis.

... and Monti jokes over the "international plot"

Monti responded to Berlusconi allegations, calling it "interesting" but odd. Berlusconi confuses him on a logical level, Monti said, expressing a hope that voters were less confused than he was, he said during an interview on the RAI radio show Radio Anch'io. Monti remarked his government had avoided a full economic disaster through austerity measures, which were needed to stabilise public finances. Monti also said he wants to cut payroll taxes to revitalize Italian economy.
