Eurovision 2016: Italy

https://youtu.be/WySSLip5uzc I've fallen a little in love with this song since I first heard it. I've actually had the Eurovision 2016 album on loop since it appeared on Apple Music. Don't judge me. But this Italian song, I love. It's not a winner as it's not that sing-a-long or memorable, but there's something about its ...

Benvenuti a Canary Wharf!

So it seems my earlier tweet about a Montenegrin ship visiting Canary Wharf were incorrect.

Silvio’s at it again…

Not content with smiling like a loon and shouting in front of the Queen, Silvio Berlusconi has now delayed this morning's NATO ceremony on the franco-German border because he was on his mobile phone. From the BBC: First he complimented Barack Obama's "tan", then he played hide and seek with the German leader. He has ...

This picture…

...more clearly illustrates how much of a wanker Silvio Berlusconi is than any of his ill-timed quips to the press. Supposedly representing Italy at the G20 conference, he's behaving more like a moronic sports fan who's just had the good fortune to secure a photo with his favourite football player. For me, it's the combination ...
