Berlusconi: Drastic Times Call for Drastic Measures

One of the first things Silvio Berlusconi did as Italian Prime Minister was to pass a law granting the highest government offices (himself included) immunity against prosecution while in office.
Judges overturned this law last October and after Berlusconi was recently attacked by a figurine-wielding madman, apparently he is looking for protection elsewhere.

Berlusconi's latest idea is that Political blogging should be illegal, as it has led to a climate of hatred in Italy. This is not the first attempt at censuring the internet in Italy.
