    In addition to the next two levels of a second trial and then an appeal, the latter not mentioned in the diary; there is a law, introduced by Berlusconi to benefit a friend, that sets an age limit for jail birds. Mr "Bunga Bunga" will benefit from that so may be forced to serve his sentence in one of his several luxury villas.

      Since Berlusconi is 76 years old, even if he loses his appeals, he will get house arrest.

      He is also barred from running for public office for the next three years. So by the time he's eligible again, he'll be almost 80.

      I think the Italians are finally rid of him for good. Yes, it would be nice to see him in an orange jumpsuit, but at least his capacity to do damage to the country has been greatly reduced.
