The Berlusconi family-owned daily newspaper Il Giornale has launched an attack on Britain claiming that Italy is better than UK “at everything”! The paper’s editorial criticised Britain as “no longer great”.
The attack comes after the free British press apparently sided with papers such as La Repubblica in giving details of Mr Berlusconi’s presumed affairs. Mr Berlusconi also called The Guardian a ‘small provincial newspaper’ of little worth.
Italo-British asks the question: is it really all a question of one country being “better” than the other?
