Nigel Farage slammed the European Unions attitude towards Italy and mocked the EU for ‘biting off more than they could chew’.
Over the weekend Italy’s eurosceptic coalition collapsed, however, a snap election in the coming months could see the far-right League and anti-establishment 5-Star Movement join forces and unite on the EU/eurozone issue.
Together the parties have over 55% of the vote share.
“The upcoming elections will not be political, but instead a real and true referendum … between who wants Italy to be a free country and who wants it to be servile and enslaved,” Far right League leader Matteo Salvini said on Monday.
“Today Italy is not free; it is occupied financially by Germans, French and eurocrats.”
It certainly looks like eurosceptics are spreading and any referendum on the EU in Italy would see the country vote against it.
Nigel Farage slammed the European Union yesterday and mocked their behaviour towards Italy.
He said: “Brexit is not the biggest problem the EU now faces. Italy has now been mentioned, they are net contributors to this budget. they pay in about 4 billion euros every single year. There are signs within Italy voters are tiring of paying that money.”
“They question what the Euro has done to their economy, they feel they are a victim of the European Union’s immigration policies and as a result of all this they voted in a new government, only to find that bullying, hectoring from the European Commission has been listened to by the Italian President and in the last 48 hours their democracy has been traduced.”
