Germany - Italy

Lovely to see politicians argue for weeks over some stupid remarks, with all the implications included (for those who missed it: It all started when Berlusconi started comparing a German Euro-mp with a German Nazi camp guard) and tourism in Italy affected as their major market threatened to collapse.

An Italian sub minister handed in his resignation last night. An interview in German tabloid Bild came to late. Else in this (so-called) newspaper an Italian course for German tourists with useful phrases as: "Lovely wine waiter, have you got other warm drinks as well?"

Where does this world go to, if Germans appear to have a sense of humour..
