French won Waterloo, says Italian telecoms chief
Shock YouTube revelation rewrites history
Those of you looking for insights into the key events which shaped modern Europe are advised not to ring Telecom Italia Mobile exec Luca Luciani, whose grasp of history is clearly a Wellington short of a Waterloo.
The proof? Try this pumped-up motivational speech (in Italian, but available here with English subtitles):
Yeah - go get 'em tiger. For the record, Luciani allegedly trousers in excess of €800,000 a year to deliver his revisionist insights. We suggest he invest a very small percentage of his salary here. ®

In 1800 the Irish Parliament passed the Act of Union which incorporated the island into the United Kingdom and was ruled directly by London. This state of affairs lasted until 1922.
Can I re write history to make Churchill and American and GW bush a Brit ??
Waterloo and somehow Mussolini
We are rather off subject, but Mussolini and his mistress were given a blast of machine gun fire and then both hung upside down from a lamp post (or similar ).
Well according to old film I have seen of the event.
