I loved this article. The G8 summit was held recently in Italy so they wanted to make sure that everyone knows they are superior to the Brits:
Britain is a country in a sorry decline overshadowed at every turn by Italy, where even the renaissance of the English football team is down to the miracle of Italian management.
That is the verdict of Il Giornale, the newspaper that is part of Silvio Berlusconi’s media empire, which ran pages of criticism yesterday under the headline: “Dear Brits, we’ve beaten you at everything and it’s time you realised it.”
The attack on all things British comes after weeks of revelations about the Italian Prime Minister’s sexually charged antics, much of which he claims have been fabricated as part of an elaborate plot, which incorporated elements of the British press including The Times, to destabilise him.
“We’re talking about the country that many people still consider to be a beacon of journalism, politics, economics and sport,” it added. “But Great Britain is no longer great.”
