Silvio Berlusconi - Where is Your Credibilty

This question was put to the Italian Prime Minister by Bob Geldoff, "how can you lead the G8, here we have the signature of a country and the honor of a man," said Geldoff alluding to the dis-parity between promised and actual charitable donations from the Italian government for foreign aid.

Geldoff suggested that foreign aid was cut by €400m, " I am sorry we made a mistake" Mr berlusconi cites Italy's public debt mountain and the global economic crisis had forced it to cut spending cuts.

In fairness Italy has had enough heartache and tradgedy on its own shores will the horrific earthquake, but that did not ease geldoff´s line of questioning.
