Berlusconi to quit

Silvio Berlusconi announced his resignation today (8 November) as his country continues to fight the effects of the European economic crisis. The premier tendered his resignation after losing the parliamentary majority in a key confidence vote and will quit within weeks. The Italian PM had faced extreme pressure from the EU amid fears that Italy will be the next victim of the eurozone debt fiasco. As Berlusconi's future in an official capacity draws to a close, we take a look at his 17-year reign in the Italian spotlight - and the many verbal blunders that have characterised it. Read on for pearls of wisdom from the self-professed "Jesus Christ of politics"...
