Silvio Berlusconi

Silvio pays way too much cock tax, now the girls are fighting

Check out this wop cat fight over Silvio Berlusconi and his bunga bunga girls:

Silvio Berlusconi’s female Bunga Bunga guests have reacted in anger to ‘Ruby the Heart Stealer’s’ claims that she had never had sex with the former prime minister.

And the bunga bunga girls all call “Did so! and everyone else!”  Read more »

Maybe Shearer should get a mistress

It was worth 4% to Paddy Pantsdown:

Of course, there was one bad day with The Sun providing the devastating headline ‘Paddy Pantsdown’, but the story soon died. Ashdown’s ratings went up and the Liberal Democrats rose four per cent in the opinion polls. It had been a nightmare for Ashdown but it became a positive for the party.

Most politicians it would negatively impact them, but not in this case and it never has hurt other European leaders like Silvio Berlusconi or the various little French roosters like Sarkozy and Hollande.  Read more »

Even Silvio has a sook about cock tax

Silvio Berlusconi is very upset by his massive amount of cock tax:

Former Premier Silvio Berlusconi has infuriated Italy’s legal establishment by blasting a group of female magistrates as “feminist” and “communist” for what he said was a US$260,000-a-day divorce settlement.

The comments – and the backlash – have added to the drama surrounding Berlusconi’s return to public life amid his continued sexual and legal scandals and his new role as the leader of a center-right coalition campaigning in Italy’s February 24-25 election.

Italian media initially reported that Berlusconi’s divorce from his second wife, Veronica Lario, would cost him $47 million a year. That breaks down to about $130,000 a day.  Read more »

Whale Week What Was

682zoomWe started our Saturday by paying our respects to Norman Schwarzkopf Jr., the hard-charging US Army general whose forces smashed the Iraqi army in the 1991 Gulf War.  He died aged 78.  At The Standard 2012 Worst Political Blog Mike Smith is told some home truths about long term grass-roots Labour families heading for the Greens.  A quick vid on how to put out a boat fire the Kiwi way is next, followed by a vote for Best Minister.  The winner, at 52%, is Judith Collins.  The Whale Week That Was summarised all the stories this blog covered in the previous seven days.  A quite active Saturday Debate (for the time of year especially) led a post calling for nominations for Best Political Blog.  Those who see WOBH as any sort of threat to them (and those that don’t too), should take heed of this Malcolm Tucker quote: “marshal all the media forces of Darkness to hound them to an assisted suicide”.  A CNN piece showing Teachers in Utah taking a class on gun use shows some common sense around the gun debate.  A reader has taken yesterday’s US Fiscal Cliff graphic and created one for New Zealand – great work.  As Cameron Slater predicted from the outset, the Aussie Hoax DJs will not face charges.  The NZ Herald continues to amuse – this time a car crashed into a poll.  The blog then introduces us to two sexy taxidermists showing you don’t have to look like a front row forward to deal with dead animals.  And you’d think we’re picking on an incompetent NZ Herald, and you would be right.  This time they have Jesse Ryder beating himself at Eden Park in Wellington.  Then a hilarious story about a Queensland woman who fell into the longdrop and was there for two hours before being discovered by her husband.   Turns out that during the Falklands War the French tried to send missiles to Argentinia behind Margaret Thatcher‘s back.  Commerce first eh?  The last post of the day highlights a report of a man holding up a Countdown Supermarket with a hammer.  Our readers get fired up about the idea of hammer banning.

An awful lot of cock tax

This story proves the rule that the marginal rate of cock tax is always slightly more than a sensible man is willing to pay….even for Silvio:

Former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has obtained a divorce from his second wife, Veronica Lario, and will have to pay her 3 million euros ($A3.86 million) a month in alimony, media report.

Silvio is all class

Silvio has always had a nice eye for the ladies and he has the kind of vast wealth that allows him to pay a lot of cock tax without it hurting too much.

In a wide-ranging interview aired on the talk show ‘Domenica Live’ on his Canale 5 TV network, the 76-year-old billionaire said he was engaged to Francesca Pascale, his 27-year old girlfriend.

“Finally I feel less lonely,” Mr Berlusconi said. “I am engaged to a Neapolitan, it’s official.

“She is 27 years old, with very solid values, beautiful on the outside and even more beautiful on the inside.

“She is very close to me, she loves me very much and I feel the same. My daughter Marina appreciates her and loves her very much too.”

Silvio has always had a nice eye for the ladies and he has the kind of vast wealth that allows him to pay a lot of cock tax without it hurting too much.

Maybe Silvio did pay too much cock tax though:

The tycoon also used Sunday’s interview to lash out at the Milan trial where he is fighting charges that he paid for sex with an under age prostitute, the then 17-year-old exotic dancer, Karima El-Mahroug, better known as “Ruby the Heart Stealer”.

Mr Berlusconi and she have denied the charges.

Asked about the so-called ‘bunga bunga’ parties, he said: “It was a time when I felt very lonely. I had just got divorced, my sister had died.
“Then someone said: ‘Why don’t we organise some soirĂ©es?’ I was tricked.”

Describing the Ruby trial as an “incredible machination”, he added: “It was an excuse to put in place a giant operation for defamation against me and against the Italian government, including on an international level.

The Italians get a glamour model as a minister and we get a leopard skin wearing pig hunter. Maybe we should arrange an exchange.

Mr Berlusconi’s fiancĂ©e has said that her life revolves around three things – her family, politics, and him – and is said to be jealous of other women in his inner circle, including Mara Carfagna, a glamour model whom he appointed equal opportunities minister in his last government.

Lèse–majesté

This is lèse–majesté not bunga bunga Silvio, pull yer head in:

The action would not stop Closer’s Italian sister magazine, Chi, from publishing the same photos but the speed with which the royal couple have acted may deter others from publishing the pictures.

Chi has said it plans to print a 26-page special featuring the photographs.

Closer and Chi are both part of former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s Mondadori media group.

Maybe he fell off a bunga bunga dancer?

Silvio Berlusconi has had a fall. He is well known for his hordes of ladies and bunga bunga dancers…perhaps he fell off one of them?

Silvio Berlusconi, the former Italian premier, has injured his shoulder and wrist after taking a tumble at his villa along Sardinia’s Emerald Coast.

State TV quoted Dr. Alberto Zangrillo as saying there was “nothing worrisome” about the 75-year-old media mogul’s condition after the fall on Thursday on the grounds of Villa Certosa, near Porto Rotondo. The doctor did not elaborate and it was not clear what caused the fall.

A local paper, La Nuova Sardegna, reported earlier the tentative diagnosis was a dislocated shoulder and an injured wrist, along with bruises. It said a member of his Freedom People party, who is a physical therapist for the AC Milan soccer team, gave Mr Berlusconi first aid.

Has John answered this yet?

Despite all the photo ops at the annual big gay out, John Key still hasn’t come-out and supported gay marriage.

The closest he has come is to say that he isn’t against gay marriage, but dismissed the issue as not on the Government’s agenda. I say that’s not good enough. John Key loves to overshare. He told the press core about his cat and vasectomy. Maybe some more direct questioning is needed at the next post-cab?

The scandalous leader of Poppolo della Libertá (People of Freedom, PDL) and Italian Primer Minister Silvio Berlusconi spoke about homosexuality with the members of his party.

“In all of us there is a part of homosexuality of the 25 per cent, I have it too”, Il Cavaliere said, and added: “After a careful exam I’ve found that mine is lesbian”.

This way, Berlusconi solved his “problem of a quarter of gay personality” and communicated it happily to a militant of the PDL.

Our PM might not be 25% gay – but why isn’t he letting a significant number of New Zealanders enjoy equal rights to marry the person they love?

Trevor would be jealous

ᔥ The Telegraph

Trevor Mallard likes to think he is a bit of stick man. He is known to run his glad eye over each of the new laies in parliament and he even manages to run one up a fair few of them. However Trevor’s peccadillos with the ladies pale into insignificance when compared with Silvio Berlusconi:

Showgirls dressed as nuns performed a pole-dancing striptease for former Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi at a ‘bunga bunga’ party at his luxury villa at Arcore, a Milan court heard on Monday.

Giving evidence one of the guests, Imane Fadil, 27, said former TV showgirl Nicole Minetti, 28, and another guest Barbara Fagioli, 26, performed a dual ‘Sister Act’ striptease for Mr Berlusconi at the first party Fadil attended at the villa in February 2010.

“We were standing and having a drink at the bar, when Fagioli began performing in the ‘bunga bunga’ room. After 10 minutes she disappeared with Minetti. Then they presented themselves in black nun’s tunics with a crucifix on their breast and a white veil and did a performance that I never expected.

“They began to throw themselves around a pole, dancing a type of ‘Sister Act’. Then they stripped down to their underwear and continued to dance about. I was shocked.”

Morrocccan-born Miss Fadil, a model, was giving evidence at the trial of Mr Berlusconi in which he is accused of paying for sex with an under age prostitute, a Moroccan-born exotic dancer nicknamed Ruby the Heartstealer, and of abusing his office by trying to have her released from police custody.

When Mr Berlusconi saw she was embarrassed on that occasion, Imane said he stopped the striptease and took her on a personal tour of the villa and showed her his office which was full of gifts for guests.
