Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi told opposition parties Tuesday that they were “mad” to think he would resign over a probe into allegations he paid for sex with several young women, including a 17-year old nightclub dancer.

REUTERS - Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on Tuesday said he would not resign over a probe into allegations he paid for sex with a 17-year-old nightclub dancer.

"What, are you all mad?" Berlusconi said when asked if he would bow to calls from the opposition for his resignation.
 
"I'm absolutely calm, I'm enjoying myself."
 
Berlusconi faces growing pressure to resign after Milan magistrates alleged several women prostituted themselves with the prime minister at his homes, including the 17 year-old dancer who goes by the name "Ruby, Robber of Hearts".
