Saramago on the Berlusconi 'thing' (La cosa Berlusconi)

Great piece by Nobel Laureate José Saramago: "La cosa Berlusconi". It was about time an intellectual condemned this gangster. (See theEcoLogics blog for a translation)
Note that the piece is published in El País, owned by PRISA, which has also published the photos of corrupt politicians and their 'putas' at Berlusconi's palace.

Now, I don't like El País, as my countless letters to them show (see also my posting on El Pais and its coverage of Latin America), but when they hound capos mafiosos and paedophiles whatever they're motives may be - and believe me they have their motives - well, bully for them!
