The 73-year-old declared his support in a letter to Right-wing newspaper Il Foglio, which was published on the front page. Mr Berlusconi is friends with the former prime minister and invited him and his wife Cherie to his Sardinian villa for a holiday five years ago. In his letter, embattled Mr Berlusconi said Mr Blair had the right credentials and should get the job as soon as legally and politically possible. He added: I work to ensure we do not lose a great political legacy. Mr Berlusconi has been involved in scandals since April and has denied allegations that he paid prostitutes to go to parties at his official residences.

Paul and Brandy Romero, from Eunice, traded their cockatoo and $175 (108) for the children.

No NHS training for spotting child abuseHEALTH staff in London are not being trained to spot signs of child abuse, a report warns today. Nine of the capitals primary care trusts and hospitals have been named by health regulator the Care Quality Commission as failing to meet basic standards on child protection. Some failed to train staff to recognise and report child abuse, or did not make a member of staff responsible for safeguarding children. Haringey primary care trust, which was criticised over the death of Baby P, was one of those which failed to meet standards. The Care Quality Commission graded every health and adult social care service in England. Investigators looked at 44 core standards, including food and clean- liness. Barking, Havering and Redbridge hospitals trust scored the lowest in the country, with a grading of double weak. Fifteen of the 73 trusts in London were also weak but nine were given the highest possible rating -- double excellent -- which the Royal Marsden in Chelsea won for the fourth year running. The commissions London director, Colin Hough, said: The variation between excellent and weak is still too wide. A spokesman for NHS Haringey said: These results refer to last year. We are taking forward a major programme to improve the way we protect children at risk.
