They Really Do Things In Europe Differently

Italian politician Silvio Berlusconi is to marry his 27-year-old girlfriend Francesca Pascale, who is young enough to be his eldest daughter’s daughter.

Berlusconi, no stranger to scandals involving women (or indeed scandals of other kinds), says he feels “less lonely” now.

Please excuse me for being cynical, but I do I wonder what it was about the 76 year old billionaire that first attracted Miss Pascale to him.

But yeah, they really do do politics differently in Europe.

Most recently I was Editor in Chief of The Agonist from Feb 2012 to Feb 2013. My blogging began at Newshoggers and I’ve had the immense pleasure of working with some great writers there and around the web ever since, including at Crooks & Liars. I'm a late 40′s, Scottish ex-pat, now married to a wonderful Texan, with Honours in Philosophy from Univ. of Stirling, UK 1986. I worked most of life in business insurance industry (fire, accident, liability) including 12 years as a broker/underwriter/correspondent at Lloyd’s of London. Being from the other side of the pond, my political interests tend to focus on how US foreign policy affects the rest of the planet. Other interests include early and dark-ages British history, literature and cognitive philosophy/science.
