From one sunglasses-wearing singer to another now and Silvio Berlusconi has, after years of antics shadier than a coconut tree, finally got conked on the head. He's been sentenced to jail for sex with a minor, although in a particularly grimy irony, he's unlikely to serve any actual prison time because of his advanced age.
I have absolutely no interest whatsoever in listening to the head of the Church of England pontificate about banking - I find it totally bizarre! It's like listening to George Osborne's view on wild trout fishing or Abu Qatada's view on last week's episode of Made in Chelsea (For the record, he thought it was 'totes amazing' but also kind of wishes a plague on both their houses).
A prime minister under pressure. A coalition government rebelling over whether money should be spent on a granddad at home or a 'bloke from Somalia' instead. A key finance bill is at stake. Deals are quickly made and unmade, alliances forged and broken, with an ever more pressing deadline that could see a premier fall... That was the dilemma at the heart of last week's Borgen - the Danish political thriller on BBC4.
