He's the Man...
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is at it again. The man certainly can be a charmer and at other times provide quite the quote. His latest?
PARMA, Italy (Reuters) - Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi repeated one of his most famous diplomatic gaffes on Tuesday by insulting the cuisine of Finland which Italy beat to host the new European Food Safety Authority.
"I've been to Finland and I had to endure the Finnish diet so I am in a position to make a comparison," Berlusconi told local dignitaries ahead of the inauguration of the EFSA in the northern Italian town of Parma.
Berlusconi didn't stop there though in order to pry away the hosting of the EFSA from Finland...
"I had to use all my playboy tactics, even if they have not been used for some time," said Berlusconi.
Well done, sir...well done.
