A posturing French pygmy

The Italian press are furious at what they see as unfair scapegoating by Brussels - while the Daily Mail has some strong words for Nicolas Sarkozy.

La Repubblica says that Italy is being unfairly blamed for the eurozone disaster - whatever it does, it won't make Brussels happy.

Corriere della Sera agrees - and says Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel's smirking over Italy is insulting and smug.

The Daily Mail is even less complimentary about the French president - calling him a megalomaniac with a Napoleon complex.

The Times targets Occupy London protests - they've been out with thermal imaging cameras they say prove the tents aren't being slept in overnight - but the Guardian says that could be a good thing, since it proves protesters have real lives too.
