Mr Media and the Professor

I caught a short part of the TV pre-election duel between Mr B and Mr P(rodi) last night (My son was demanding to hear 'music' on my PC). Today, I heard that around 16 million Italians tuned into last night's shootout – more out of curiosity than anything else, I suspect.

In short, Mr Media gave a polished performance, and one cannot deny that the man is a suave communicator. Whereas, the Professor, rather lived up to his nickname, and came across as being as about as exciting as a dull Sunday afternoon in autumn. Still, showmanship is one thing and competence is another and overall many Italians seemed to think, well this is my impression, that the staid Mr P came across as being more professional than the rather too slick and sticky Mr B.

Stop reading, start speaking

Stop translating in your head and start speaking Italian for real with the only audio course that prompt you to speak.

The elections will shortly be upon us, so we shall see whether the populous here will give prudent Prodi a chance or whether it will decide to retain Mr Entertainment.

No new faces though……
