If you thought Gordon Brown was under pressure, spare a thought for Italian PM Silvio Berlusconi. Spanish newspaper El País have published photos that appear to show Berlusconi hanging out at his Sardinian villa with a cohort of teenage girls. The photos (full set here) are just the latest chapter in a scandal focusing on Berlusconi’s fondness for younger women, but the gaff-prone politician has so far refused to admit any wrongdoing: "Do you take a shower dressed? These girls were bathing in a whirlpool bath inside a private home, and they were assaulted in a scandalous way,” said the 72-year-old swordsman.

Oh, and this isn't Silvio Berlusconi. But it could be. Easily.
