Berlusconi behind Cowen... and traffic wardens
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Burlusconi stood firmly behind his Irish counterpart at an EU summit yesterday in an act of solidarity with his under fire colleague. In a public display of support for the Taoiseach he stood behind him during the photo shoot and placed his hands firmly on the Offaly man's shoulders. Many will remember his similar display of support for Italy's female traffic wardens. Watch the mobile phone footage below of Berlusconi which captures the 72 year old demonstrating his affection for those who keep order on the busy streets of Rome.
