Just One of Those Things

"I'm getting out to mind my own f---ing business, from somewhere else, and so I'm leaving this sh---y country, of which I'm sickened."

A police investigation into extortion charges revealed a phone conversation with Berlusconi and Valter Lavitola, the editor of a small newspaper and one of the men accused of bribing the Prime Minister. In the conversation, Berlusconi erupted into anger and denounced his country. Italians were outraged by his comments but the Prime Minister shrugged it off, calling it "one of those things you say on the telephone late at night."
