Berlusconi Tells Repubblica Ahead Of Confidence Vote: "I Want To Look My Traitors In The Face"

Tyler Durden's picture

With the soap opera moving from Greece to Italy, the entertainment factor is about to have a step function move higher. Here is the latest on the Berlusconi "resignation" farce from La Repubblica, google translated: "Free Berlusconi: "I want to see in his face betrays those." Silvio Berlusconi does not resign. Available on the phone with the Prime Minister gave to displace those who resigned and revealed: "Tomorrow is the statement in the House vote, then I will trust the letter submitted to the EU and the ECB. I want to see in the face of those who try to betray me. I do not understand how they are circulated the voices of my resignation, are devoid of any foundation, "said the premier." Needless to say, grammatical perfection is irrelevant here: the message is all too clear - unless Silvion gets full immunity and prosection guarantees from his replacement, he will not step down. The question is can anyone give such a promise to the billionaire?

How much peaceful me would like him to meet some real guys in a dark corner of a street is rather startling...

Even with a halting translation it's still a politician with moving lips.

I'm not so sure about that. Any impediment to the NWO globalists is a friend of mine!!

Rock on, Silvio and Angela ... make 'em sweat!

He's obviously in need of a homosexual lover to take the edge off.

It's a Greek/Italian thing.

Please don't judge.

Where's the lube.

He can get as much of that as he wants and more in prison.

it looks like in the future, he could be hanging upside down

I think it's time to make him an offer he can't refuse ...

Look in the mirror, Silvio!

Why doesn't Bunga Bunga resign and just move to Switzerland to avoid prosecution?   Then find a GS-schooled replacement.  It would make a market very happy ... for 24 hours.

For his sake, I hope the metal detectors at the entrance did their job...

To start a new leadership race

Will all traitors please show their face

A small price to pay

To send "Sil" on his way

To finally resign in disgrace

"I Want To Look My Traitors In The Face"  Is that the same face he uses when ass raping underage Moroccans?

As always, the best entertainment always comes from Italy ! Vive le Colisee ! Maybe they will rise back to their former glorious selves after this debt crisis ? One can always hope !

Unlike G-PAP, this guy wont go away gracefully.  There will be political bloodshed, as Italian politics wrote hte book on political mutiny. 

He won't leave on his own unless there is a serious threat of them voting him out.  Then, he may leave just ot save face.  But he'll wait as long as he has to.

Good news for Silvio? At least AC Milan is top 3 in Serie A.

And in other news Germany's economy (The strongest in Europe) is imploding as Industrial production craters. Down 2.7%!

Europe is already in Recession. Which means all GDP forcasts will again be lowered and debt will rise.

Italian song to tell Berlusconi to "go fuck off", literally! pronounced: Vaffanculo



Paul Thomason's picture

At least he has some character,  better than the rest of the boring turds like van rumpoy and co.  Plus I still think Steve Liesman gives a new meaning to the word 'slob', perhaps that fat docile pig could be the new PM?

Note to self's picture

Stake my future on a hell of a past
Looks like tomorrow is a coming on fast
Ain't complaining about what I got
Seen better times but who has not.

Silvio silver and gold 
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know.

Honest as the next jade rolling that stone
When I come and knockin' don't throw me no bone
I'm an old boll weevil looking for a home
If you don't like it you can leave me alone.

I can snap my fingers and require the rain
From a clear blue sky and turn it off again
I can stroke your body and relieve your pain
And charm the whistle off an evening train.

Silvio silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio I gotta go
Find out something only dead men know 

Give what I got until I got no more
I take what I get until I even the score
You know I love you and further more
When it is time to go you got an open door.

I can tell your fancy I can tell your plain
You give something up for ev'rything you gain
Since ev'ry pleasure's got an edge of pain
Pay for your ticket and don't complain.

One of these days and it won't be long
Going down the valley and sing my song
I will sing it loud and sing it strong
Let the echo decide if I was right or wrong.

Silvio silver and gold
Won't buy back the beat of a heart grown cold
Silvio I gotta go 
Find out something only dead men know.

Always makes me laugh :

Yet another one :


Eurogroup finance ministers will hold an emergency meeting on 17 Nov amid problems with the eurozone's bailout fund the European Financial Stability Facility (EFSF).

"Emergency"  ... meet in 10 days time ?

Like ... that should prop things up until the 17th. while everybody waits , guessing what the next indecision will be !

People called Romanes, they go, the house?

All right, but apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Just a more other item: law.

See the Corpus juris Justinianeum, for instance.
