The Italian deputies walking out of Parliament on to the sunny piazza were at first only too pleased to oblige when a reporter and camera crew asked them for their views on the 2007 budget. They posed for the cameras, offered pithy judgments on Italy’s finances and thought nothing of it when a pretty make-up girl wiped the sweat from their brows.
What they did not know was that although the cameras were real, the interviews were a fake and the attentive make-up girl was using swabs on their foreheads. The results, according to the television programme which staged the stunt, showed that of 50 deputies, a dozen tested positive for cannabis and four for cocaine.
So, umm, anyone know the make up girl on 18 Doughty Street? Question Time?
