The EU facade of invincibility is palpably crumbling. For years, it was only ever a facade anyway. Now Matteo Salvini is leading the Italians in open rebellion, as his Five Star party that won the most votes in athe recent Italian election has given the EU “il dito”!
“Britain is a friendly country, declared Salvini, “with a long history of trade with Italy. You made a free choice with Brexit and I very much hope that it will be possible to maintain completely open trade with the EU without any penalties,” he told The Telegraph. Continue reading
