Top 10 articles of the week 28/06/2013

We’re back on schedule this week (articles of the week are usually published on a Friday) and in a period where we’ve seen the US Supreme Court rule that it is unconstitutional for the federal government to define marriage between a man and a woman, and ex-Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi given a lengthy custodial sentence, here are my top ten articles this week.
