an italian town overrun by pakistani and other mohammedans, a christist from sri lanka, and other assorted local villains involved in prostitution, gang warfare and other such fun stuff. no wonder italians love to live in india safe from all these nuisances; enriching themselves is the icing on the cake.
in that context, the word 'toady' springs to mind.
natwar singh, formerly chief of the toady brigade, has finally discovered a vertebra or two. alas, a bit too late in the day, a cynic might say.

Death in Brescia
It's an ancient Italian city known for its conservatism. But in 17 days in August, seven people were callously murdered. Ed Vulliamy reports from an area riven by racism and organised crime

'See you soon,' chirped Hina Saleem to her boyfriend Beppe Tampini, after receiving a phone call from her father. 'I won't be late.' She also informed her boss, Grumail Multani, at the Pizzeria Antica India where she worked in the northern Italian city of Brescia: 'Some relatives have arrived from France - with presents! I must greet them, but I won't be late for work.' During the hours that followed, both Beppe and Multani tried to call the 21-year-old on her mobile - without success. The call home had been a trap: Hina's father, aided by three male relatives, had cut his own daughter's throat, after a family council condemned her to death for her liaison with Tampini, a local carpenter.
