Italians go to war against The Times


A war of words has erupted between Britain and Italy – over 12 lines in a Matthew Parris column which asked: “Are Italians the rudest people on the planet?”

According to the Times, Parris’s remarks have prompted a backlash in the Italian press. Il Giornale replied with a piece entitled: “God save us from the English” – which laid into inconsiderate British tourists, standards of hygiene, cuisine and kissing abilities.
