It really irritates me when I read english newspapers these days.
Screaming headlines as if a major leading politician had made such comments!
For Christ sake it was the outburst of a small town councillor who said it in a fit of rage (he has since profusely apologised) after his mother had just been attacked by an immigrant.(They conveniently forgot to mention this fact in the anglo saxon press).
How about the recent massacre of an old couple by illegal immigrants in Treviso? Or the drunk eastern european who killed 4 people and has not spent one day in jail! Didn't see these stories on the Herald or Times or Reuters....
Rather than concentrate and pontificate on the outburst of a town councillor why not instead explain what is really happening in Italy and the huge problem of illegal immigration due to the tollerant and inadequate leftist policies of the Prodi's governement and it's incompetence to deal with issues.
Councillor Giorgio Bettio is not to blame. Prodi and this shameful governement are.
