When sex meets politics

Silvio Berlusconi's latest sex scandals have led to a deep political crisis. Il Cavaliere faces a vote of confidence in parliament and his critics say the Italian Prime Minister has become an embarrassment for his country.

Guests:

Mario MAURO
Italian MEP
European People's Party
 

Philippe LAMBERTS
Belgian MEP
Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance


Presented by Christophe Robeet

Prepared by Soumaya Benaïssa
