Mamma mia! Has the financial crisis really made us poorer than the Italians? | World news | The Guardian

(note title not the same due to original title is freakish long)

Interesting article since it is factually correct. Italy is a bigger economy than the UK, granted marginally and only because of the tanking pound, but still an interesting fact that most people would miss in the whole economic downturn debate.

But for the Brits.. you got the most important thing.. the best football team in Europe (Euro Champions League winners) and that must piss off the football insane Italians
