|Silvio Berlusconi looking at vote results|
Beside this, his closest ally – Northern League's Umberto Bossi – has always kept defending his boss.
Berlusconi tried anything to keep Italian's faith, even promising to change his party's name, to a more intriguing one.
And when Umberto Bossi was asked by the journalists whether Berlusconi should step down, he answered: maybe not, just step aside.

And today – yet again – the parliament had to vote on the “rendiconto” (a financial review) that lead to a tie vote just one month ago (see Silvio Berlusconi and the really, really bad luck).
Well, today things went differenty: instead of a draw, Berlusconi's government reached a win in the vote, but he obtained only 308 votes where the absolute majority is of 316 votes.
There are 8 traitors, and Berlusconi has reviewed the list of voters to reveal (and possibly hunt down) them, but this time no horse-trading seem to work and save his government.
