Berlusconi hints at political comeback

Italy's former PM Silvio Berlusconi, who quit amid a string of scandals, gives hints he could stand in next elections.

    Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti was forced to apologise for saying that if the previous government of Silvio Berlusconi was in power the country would be in serious financial trouble.

    This indicates just how powerful and popular his flambouyant predecessor still is.

    And Berlusconi recently hinted that he might stand in the national elections next year, hoping to become prime minister for the fourth time in 20 years
