Berlusconi whip warns of drugs, gay marriage if left wins
'Italy runs risk of State-sanctioned heroine dens'05 February, 19:54
(ANSA) - Rome, February 5 - Legalized drugs and same-sex marriage await Italy if the center left wins in elections this month, the Senate whip of former premier Silvio Berlusconi's center-right People of Freedom (PdL) party said Tuesday.
"State-authorized heroine dens and gay marriage: this is what France's leftist government is proposing, and it's a risk for Italy in the unlikely event that the left wins," said Maurizio Gasparri. The center-left coalition led by Pier Luigi Bersani is currently the frontrunner in polls, but the center right is now within six points, according to an average of the latest surveys.
