Silvio Berlusconi is a the wimp, says Umberto Bossi

Thursday, January 26, 2012. Umberto Bossi accuses his ally Silvio Berlusconi of acting like a wimp and being afraid to send home Italian prime minister Mario Monti. And threatens to send home the President of Lombardy instead.

“Silvio is just afraid“ to send home Monti, “he's a wimp”. This is Umberto Bossi's position regarding Berlusconi unwillingness to send Monti home.

Silvio Berlusconi and Umberto Bossi: playing or fighting?
Are those real punches?
“Monti must go” is Bossi's slogan, otherwise Formigoni will go. Formigoni is the President of Lombardy region, Bossi is hinting that his party – the Northern League – could withdraw the support for the coalition.
Actually Mario Monti is shored up in the polls, even though the reforms brought by his technocratic government are tough and painful.

Bossi manoeuvre might be just a way to show his delusional fans (recently he's been booed on a Northern League's meeting) that he is alive and kicking, whilst many thinks former Ministry of Interior should oust him and get the lead of the quite-not-so angry crowds.
