Berlusconi, the man who could freeze time

Jokes on his own handsomeness, gays and beautiful girls, and promises of electoral victories in a landslide. If you were attending Mr Berlusconi’s public comeback in Cagliari, Sardinia yesterday you could think to be back in the Nineties.

What is really stunning is that this is not a delusion of the Cavaliere. Mr Pier Ferdinando Casini, a veteran politician and the leader of the centrist Catholics, just announced that he is ready to rejoin Mr Berlusconi’s coalition. Deputy Prime Minister Angelino Alfano’s small party could do the same as soon as the Letta Government ceases to exist. An IPSOS poll revealed that the rightist coalition could get 37 percent of the votes, thus getting an absolute majority of the parliamentary seats pursuant to the new draft electoral law agreed by Mr Berlusconi and his main competitor Mr Matteo Renzi, the secretary of the Democratic Party.
