    Default Silvio Berlusconi sentenced to one year in prison over wire taps. Don't be silly of course he's still free.

    "Hello God it's me Sync. What does Silvio have to do to actually get landed behind bars?"

    Silvio today was sentenced to a year for ordering a police wiretap of a political rival to be leaked and published in Silvio's own brother's newspaper. He's already free on appeal from another one year sentence for tax fraud, he's got 2 more verdicts (On hiring a child hooker and more tax fraud), and of course used his shield of PM to exploit statutes of limitation in escaping stints in jail for lying under oath.

    BBC News - Silvio Berlusconi convicted over Italy wiretap

    An Italian court on Thursday sentenced former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi to a one-year jail term for making public the taped contents of a confidential phone call in a case related to a 2005 banking scandal
    Exactly what does he have to do to get jailed? What do the Italian people have to be shown to make them stop voting for the guy? He's a recidivist criminal who is clearly only standing for PM in order to stay out of prison.

    What about Bertosconi ?

    The Irish legal system is keeping him from imprisonment.
    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.

    Somebody needs to take Sync's OP, and amend it to specify FFinished, Bertoconi, Meehaul, Pravda, and the Sindo.

    Even then, they'll put him under house arrest in Bunga-Bunga Prison.....

    At least the Italians get their corrupt political class to court, in Ireland we give them huge pensions and a column in the star.

    The voters in that country are extraordinary. The Irish electorate looks entirely rational in its decision-making by comparison.

    That sort of post gets on my wick. There is nothing remotely like the Italian levels of graft and corruption in Ireland. They are on a different planet. However for real bona fide stupidity nothing beats the whiners and hysterics on Irish political message boards.
