For those of you who take The Times, Sarah has a coruscating piece on the whole thing tomorrow. Her line: we are supposed to be amazed, amazed I tell you, that Putin rules Russia with a rod of iron and Mr Berlusconi has a weakness for the ladies. After an extensive telephone conversation, we conclude that the whole thing should be renamed Wiki-statement-of-the-bleeding-obvious.
And you know I never miss any excuse for a bonus ladyship picture, so here you are:
You KNOW it makes sense. (Especially since nothing else in the world at the moment much does.)
