Berlusconi’s Consigliere

David Mills lunched Don Berlusconi at the Garrick some years ago. Anyone who has had lunch at the Garrick will understand now why Berlusconi agrees with Chirac on English food. Isn’t it fascinating that Tessa Jowell’s husband advises foreign tycoons how to dodge taxes and gets $600,000 bunged into a hedge fund as a thank you. Now he is under investigation by the Italian police, and the bastards Inland Revenue. Nice that they can still laugh about it.

UPDATE: According to the Guardian Diary, Mills actually met Don Bernasconi, an under-boss in the Don Berlusconi mob, rather than the godfather himself.
