While eyes are on Berlusconi the departure of the repellent Bossi of the Northern Leagues is just as worthy of celebration. The new stability law which has just been passed in the Senate has been stripped of the Northern Leagues' gun law which was to make possible the far easier acquisition of 'sporting' weapons. It should be remembered that in Italy wild boar is hunted with laser-guided rifles - little red dots flitting across the woods.
Berlusconi bought Bossi and the Leagues as a coalition party en bloc for 2 billion lira, cheap but then everything about Bossi and his party is cheap.
