David McWilliams: Party is now over for ECB and 'Bunga Bunga' banks
Are you too fascinated by the details of Berlusconi's 'Bunga Bunga' parties? With all the serious stuff about the Dail, the election, politics and our predicament, we need a distraction.
A quick glance at 'Grazia' from time to time is just the tonic. In such magazines and in all the red tops, we get the "no-holds-barred" details of the Italian prime minister's orgies outside Milan with young prostitutes who were themselves shocked by the demands of Silvio.
The image of the rich, successful, old 'Sugar Daddy' with oodles of money and no sense, infatuated by the beautiful temptress is as old as the Bible. It is the modern equivalent of Herod, Salome, and the Dance of the Seven Veils, which ultimately led to the beheading of John the Baptist. Berlusconi is Italy's Herod.
