Fact of the Day: Benito Marriage

When Benito Mussolini became dictator of Italy, he tried to hide the history of his first marriage. His wife later caused him some political headaches, and both her and her son (who was named after his monster of a father) were eventually persecuted and died as a result.

He was not a nice man.

He was an absolute Buffoon who was under the delusion that he was a re-incarnation
of Gaius Julius Caesar and that he sure was not on the military stage and the international stage of diplomacy.
However he did curb the powers of the Mafia and he was accredited with getting the trains to run on time.
With regard to the latter, he would be most welcome to come to the Australian State
of Queensland where he would have his hands full fixing the train system here.
The ever suffering public here in Brisbane might even elevate him to Imperial Purple robes.
But as for his other qualifications he was a bloody clot!
