Mr Tessa Jowell Facing Four Years
It seems that today is the day when corrupt company lawyer Mr. Tessa Jowell will be sentenced to 4 years or so in an Italian prison for his part in getting Berlusconi acquitted from corruption charges.
It was all going so well, until greedy Mr. Tessa Jowell tried to avoid paying tax on the huge wedge that Berlusconi had shoved his way for perjury and foolishly committed some of the actuality to paper. He wrote to his accountant, and that letter ended up in the Italian court. One wonders how it did, perhaps there was a falling out over fees?
Luckily for Berlusconi, they changed the law in Italy to protect senior politicians, so he's laughing and the toad-like David Mills can await extradition. Do you suppose that he'll be doing polenta rather than porridge?
UPDATE: Four years and six months - but the bastard will appeal and appeal and try to work the system until the time limitations stuff clicks in. We can but hope. Still fucking funny, though!
