Straight talk

•I have just read how Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa has been returned to its former glory after an eight-year restoration project in which it was partially straightened.

The monument has thus had its famous list partially corrected after engineers managed to straighten it by 18 inches from the vertical, returning it to its 1838 position.

I am wondering could they do the same in keeping Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on the straight and narrow?
