In your editions of today, your correspondent, Guy Dinmore, reports from Rome, and quotes Mr Berlusconi as saying “It is better to like beautiful girls than to be gay”. Mr Dinmore describes this remark as “homophobic”.
In other words, Mr Dinmore is suggesting that it is better to be gay than to like women. It seems he wishes to turn human nature upside down. It seems unfair to criticise Berlusconi on the one occasion that he is telling the truth.
