Yesterday, on BBC2 (in England) was on, in prime time, Mock the week (conductors in photo on the left), one of the most important show of the network, which has been going now for seven years. Six comedians around a table talk freewheeling and, yesterday, at the center of the jokes was Silvio Berlusconi. For 15 minutes they said everything on our premier. They were ironically (it's easy in this period) mainly on Berlusconi sympathies to young girls. The nicest thing they said, that was not about a woman, was "short man".
The audience laughs in the background and even the comedians have difficulties going forward.
"Temperatures tomorrow will be between 16 and 24, but there won't be girls, so it's useless Berlusconi rush here," is just one of the less heavy jokes.
The view that have abroad on our premier, and even on all the Italians who vote for him, get out when comedians started to make fun of Gordon Brown. The English premier is dubbed while is greeting other European leaders and asks to everybody "Please, could you make a statement where you say I'm doing very well in the economic field?". But when Gordon Brown sees Berlusconi, tells him: "Please, say nothing, it's better."
Our premier initiative was shown when Berlusconi has some papers in his hands and from the mouth of comics he says: "Here we go, the party is already organized. What do you want? A girl or a boy? You can choose, we have something for everyone. "
After 23 years very little has changed. The truth is that Italians have become accustomed to seeing their leaders plagued by scandal.
And the satire would only make them smile, not react.
