(ANSAmed) - Rome, August 22 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi likened the shaky government to a capsizing boat on Thursday. "They'll say it's my fault if the ministers (from my party) consider pulling government support...But if two friends are in a boat and one throws the other overboard, who's to blame if the boat tips over?" said Berlusconi, who faces a ban from office over a conviction for tax fraud. Berlusconi also said that "the Constitution and good sense offer many routes" for finding a solution to his pending ban. "If I wanted to smile, I could say that political and institutional figures can't not know that. The same applies to all of them," he said.
