    What about...

      Let's Face It....

      Everyone who would buy Killing in the Name of probably already owns it. Compare that to the number of drones who will buy the latest X-Factor-Mas junk because they are told to, and it's no contest for Number 1.

    Being proud of hitting a 73-year-old man in the face is about what I'd expect from the Italian left. Let's see them come over here and have a go at John Prescott.

    great sayings of our time

    Bertolusconi saying 'Love always triumphs over envy and hate' is up there with Margaret Thatchers

    notorious 'Where there is discord, may we bring harmony.' For sure.

    just be glad

    If it had happened over here we would have a law rushed through to make all souvenirs out of sponge 'just in case'.

    not forgetting the hefty fine and minimum 10 years inside for any miscreant found in possession of anything harder than a jaffa cake.
