Former premier derided for returning to politics

Catholic weekly calls Berlusconi 'dinosaur'

Rome, December 11 - Catholic weekly Famiglia Cristiana in an editorial on Tuesday derided ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi as a 'dinosaur' for returning to Italian politics. "The dinosaur is coming back to throw the country into chaos," it said, referring to Berlusconi's plans to come out of political retirement and stand in general elections. "The Pied Piper is coming back to enchant with alluring promises". The article, which will be published later this week, blasted the media mogul for "blocking the virtuous path to reform - albeit unpopular" and for "sapping up hope for equality and growth, as well as (Italy's) international prestige".
