Berlusconi's back: Former Italian PM will reform his Forza party

Controversial (or disgraced, take your pick) former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has announced that he's reforming his Forza party.

He's vowed to stay in politics - saying that it can be "done outside Parliament" - ahead of a Senate committee vote to decide whether he be allowed in public office.

Berlusconi also hit out at the rulings of judges, calling sentences he has received ridiculous. Yesterday a court ordered one of his firms to pay out £450m in damages.
