Prodi confirmed as Italy winner

Yet again:
"Romano Prodi's narrow victory in the upper house of parliament in Italy has been confirmed by an appeals court.

The certification of overseas ballots was the final check needed to confirm Mr Prodi had won the closest election in the history of the Italian Republic.

A court had already confirmed that Mr Prodi's coalition had won a majority in the lower Chamber of Deputies."
And yes, yet again Berlusconi refuses to concede:
"Speaking to supporters in the northern city of Trieste, he said he had no intention of making any formal telephone call to Mr Prodi conceding defeat, as he believes the new centre left coalition will quickly become unglued."
And having no intention of being found wanting adhesives himself, he then began glueing himself to the furniture.
