    From AP:

    News from The Associated Press

    Possibly two further appeals before he could actually get locked up.

    It's a joke. He'll never see the inside of a cell. And even if he did they would arrange for him to serve his time in a 5 star hotel penthouse suite with whores on tap.

    I will believe it when I see him toddle off into a prison van.
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Northern Ireland - without forgiveness, there is dysfunctionality.

    Bertosconi is doing alright though.
    Coveney's ambition is the be Ireland's next EU Commissar and Ireland will pay a price as he builds his CV to position himself sufficiently loyal to the nEU empire.

    The Italians have a history of convicting former politicians on first instance and then clearing them on appeal. I'd be surprised if Berlusconi ever does time for this
