It is a fact that elections campaigns can be boring and a woman can only take Gordon Brown lecturing us on fiscal policy for so long before our minds start wandering. Don't tell me that i am the only one who has sat staring at John Prescott and wondered what he would look like naked.
What's that? It was only me? Bugga.
Anyway, politics in Italy are a bit different to elsewhere. Firstly you don't have to wonder anymore because one of the candidates is porn star Milly D'Abbraccio and her campaign poster doesn't focus on her analytical skills or grip of political theory, it's all about her backside.
Shamelessly targeting her brown paper bag wielding fan base, the star of such classics as 'Imperial Nymphomaniac' has plastered images of her derriere all around Rome in a bid to win a seat in the city hall.
"People don't want to see these politicians' faces anymore," she said and you know what, the lady may have a point because there really are some pretty ugly cats running our world.
I can't concentrate when Kim Jong Il comes on the television and as much as i like and admire what Hugo Chavez is doing in Venezuela, the guy had had more than his fair share of falls down the ugly tree. Our own Gordon Brown has the sort of face only a mother...actually, probably not even her.
The outgoing Russian Putin and France's Nicolas Sarkozy are not too shabby but otherwise there really is not much eye candy for us girls in politics so perhaps it would be better if politicians did begin using their butts for photo opportunities.
After all, it is where most of them speak from anyway.
