Silvio Berlusconi pushes carryin’ on to its limits

silvio-berlusconiNot for the first time in his tenure as Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi has had to fend off allegations of anything from sleeping with plenty of different women to throwing wild parties at his villa in Milan. is just pretty bummed that we didn’t get an invite to any of these parties (we’re here when you need us, Sir!)

Just over a week ago, we saw the PM deliver a profanity filled outburst on one of his own TV channels explaining not to have done anything wrong and had earlier already explained that “if occasionally I happen to look a beautiful girl in the face, it’s better to like beautiful girls than to be gay.” Who knows what would have happened were he holding any of his positions here in the UK. We’ve already seen how Rupert Murdoch’s employees have been dealt with earlier this week.

The latest news to come out of the scandal stretches the boundaries of what can be included under “carryin’ on.” The sex claims have now been joined by reports that a sizeable amount of drugs, namely Cocaine, were found in a flat he provided free to one of his guests.

The female in question, Marysthell Garcia Polanco, from the Dominican Republic, is a former weather girl who is best known for an appearance on “sexy car wash.” Now we don’t want to speculate, but it’s safe to say that Silvio didn’t pick her for her superb meteorological analysis. It wouldn’t surprise anyone were the set of “sexy car wash” just a lucrative car washing business that Silvio’s created

The 3kg of drugs are apparently part of a larger haul of 12kg allegedly belonging to Polanco’s boyfriend who was in turn arrested whilst with Nicole Minetti. She is the apparent provider of women to Berlusconi’s parties.

Berlusconi replied in his usual dismissive manner, saying that the new evidence was “just mud [thrown about] to bad mouth me.” If British PM David Cameron even uttered the word mud in an insulting way, members of his cabinet would probably have to hold back from projectile vomiting all over the floor.

It seems now that the Italian PM’s plan to take party politics to a new level is winding down at the age of 74. Although when Calvin Ayre was drinking with Berlusconi and Vladimir Putin in St. Petersburg there was no sign of naked women until the Bodog after party, it seems like Silvio has been pushing the word carryin’ on to the outer limits for some time.
