Gdwdwrkr, I looked up the BBC article in question. Its author, Danny Wood, is a bloke.

As to whether he has 'a face for radio', click here to judge for yourself.

Who wrote the BBC article? A woman with a face for radio, probably.
I think the problem lies in the fact that she has no track record in politics but plenty of experience in beauty contests. Also, all the women in Berlusconi's government have light weight roles.
I think the article is condeming Berlusconi more than the women. Silvio is famous for putting little faith in womens abilities, recently in a TV debate when asked what advice he would give to young women wishing to improve their standard of living in Italy he replied 'Marry a millionaire.'
He also advertised Italy to the business communities of the world as the country they should expand into as 'it has the most beautiful secretaries in the world'.

Well I tried the cap on this morning and I have to say it felt very faux-naïf.

Although I'm left-handed and supposedly should favour the right side of my brain only for certain parts of the brain; some descending pathways control the same side that they started from, and some control both sides together, as in posture and balance.

That sounds like the Parliament we seem to be heading towards.

Well, most of the results are known now. All the irregularities and surprises, the bad decisions and questionable tactics are largely history - and yet we still don't know who will come out on top.
My money's on Chelsea.
