Italy's "Up yours Delors" moment?

A bit rude, but just to show how high tensions in the eurozone run - add football to the mix and feelings boil over.

This is the front page of today's edition of Italian daily Libero (centre-right, politically very close to Silvio Berlusconi).

For those not familiar with Italian language, 'VaffanMerkel' is a fusion of the name of the German Chancellor and the Italian equivalent of f*** off.

Makes "Up Yours Delors" - the Sun's famous headline from the 1990s - look polite...

Who could tolerate the Germans laying down Delors? But it is not the Germans but the EU that is to blame.

Trust a Berlusconi rag to be coarse. Was astonished to see il Giornale's headline even coarser then remembered it also belongs to that unspeakable individual.
