good grief

Silvio Berulusconi has come out in favour of a salary cap in football, saying that the high wages earned by professional footballers "are unacceptable, distant from the real economy in which we live in a difficult time like this. They are outside every parameter."

Be honest. Of all the people you would have expected to have made a moral stand against capitalist excess, Berlusconi would not be high on the list.

I don't think Berlusconi would even be *on* the list!
