Here's the editorial from The Times on the morning Berlusconi announced his resignation.
"Nobody, said Viscount Melbourne, ever did anything very foolish except from strong principle. The recent history of Italy refutes him. Silvio Berlusconi has been Prime Minister for nine of the past seventeen years. In that time, he has disgraced himself and humiliated his country with a record of boorishness, fecklessness and ineptitude that is all the more more spectacular for having no obvious end except his own perpetuation in office."
