Berlusconi Clings On, Guido Loses His Grip/Shirt

Guido was up until the early hours of the morning gambling schizophrenically on the Italian elections. The prices swung like a swingometer on the Titanic, alcohol and the Italian political totty commentators were all that sustained him. Why do we get Andrew Neil and they get political presenters who look like they used to be in Baywatch a few years ago?

Guido bet just like a late night drunk getting his information from TV in a language he didn’t understand about an electoral system he couldn’t grasp. (It seems the Italians don’t grasp it either, Berlusconi is demanding a replay until he wins.) As if things weren’t bad enough Betfair is offline for a system upgrade this morning, so Guido has no idea how much he has lost. Doppio expresso per favore…

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
