Sure Italy has historically been a bit whacky on governments, but this time it's different

The new Italian government is best thought of as Nigel Farage on LSD, with regular snorts of cocaine

Their promises of tax cuts and welfare rises... allegiance to Putin... political inexperience...dislike of the EU

All whilst carrying quite a sick economy

This happening whilst Europe is consumed with Brexit...Poland & Hungary rejecting the rule of law, this addition of clowns on mescaline, could tip matters over the edge:

Dan O'Brien: Italy on the brink of sparking a financial disaster across Europe



Al Jazeerea -The populism and dystopia of Italy's new government
Italian populists could be in the driving seat of a coherent reactionary pan-European alliance for a "Europe of nations".

Regardless of whether their coalition survives or falls apart in a few months, the two parties have already won in Italy the kind of "cultural war" promoted globally by Steve Bannon.

They have established an ideological consensus across the political spectrum over the idea of an Italian nation that draws on our fascist and colonial past. Whether it will be this coalition, or a different one, that translates this fantasy into policy is unimportant. What is important is the alarming terms of the dystopian social contract that has gained popular acceptance.

I had intended to leave religion out of this referendum debate but the Yes side have insisted on bringing it to the fore in the form of Michael Harding on the PK debate, who effectively told us that Jesus would vote for abortion.

The proposition that the all-loving Jesus would support gross violence against children must surely cross whatever line there is on blasphemy - morally, if not legally.

The last census put the Catholic population at 78% so it's not unreasonable to assume that many people may wish to vote in line with their professed faith, esp. on such an important matter.

So here it is -
Catholics may not vote in support of abortion.

The official teaching of The Catholic Church -
ARTICLE 5
THE FIFTH COMMANDMENT
You shall not kill.


*Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.
*Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law.
* Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense.
*The inalienable right to life of every innocent human individual is a constitutive element of a civil society and its legislation.
*Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception.


So, what's it to be - Heaven or Hell?

Almost no Italian government lasts more than a year. Theyll be gone before they can get anything done.

Italy will be looked after by The Eurocrat Scum, the little countries, as we very well know will not be!

The Troika is only imposed on the little people!

The EU Terrorists only threaten the little uns!

More and more countries and Europeans decide they don't like the EU so much.

EUroweeneies double down declaring more and more people and countries "whacky", "racist" and "fascist".

Yeah, the EU is a wonderful harbour of peace and unity ("or fúcking else")

EU has it coming.Juncker and his cabal of globalist hoods have basically shat on Italy with its apocalyptic immigration policy. Parts of Italy have been turned into hell-holes.

Somebody quoting Dan O'Brien, a long term advocate of the interests and agenda of the richest of the rich, expresses outrage over policy making.

Without actually looking at Dan O'Brien's sewer of a legacy.

Of course since CyP has an intimate knowledge of Farage, Italy, Italian people, black shirts, cannelloni, etc., not to mention being whacked out on class A drugs, we would be wise to bow to his wacky opinion. However, I harbour some doubts...

There's no point in criticising such governments.
It only reflects the will of the voters.
Indeed, criticism is mostly used to deflect attention.

The simple matter is, such governments are symptoms of the problem.
The EU refuses to listen to the concerns of it's citizens.
And then it complains about the results when they vote accordingly.

The most negative aspect of all is that after Brexit and a whole raft of EU countries voting for parties that openly go against EU policy, the EU itself refuses to change.

What you're watching is democracy in action.

Italy has one thing going for it: the German contribution to their problems.

An undervalued euro for Germany but over valued for italy. A Germany obsessed with surplus and debt, despite the basics of economics saying everyone cannot run a surplus.

What right have foreigners to criticise another country for enacting the democratic will of its citizens.

The post financial-crises mismanagement in the EU is really Germany's fault. Merkel allowed Draghi to buy up more than €400 billion in Italian sovereign debt since 2012 . with the requests coming from Italy it's money the Germans can now say good bye to for good. Merkel has encouraged this type of aggressive panhandling across the EU with her approach and shouldn't be surprised by the professional begging play in Rome. The Euro doesn't work, let's face it. It's time to call it quits before the situation escalates to the next level.

When the foreigners have a grand little scheme whereby it shafts others then don't be surprised.

It's been quite a revolution for the right wingers though to have to see an ordo liberal country as the problem.

Dan o'Brien isn't going to turn around and say boo about neo libs.

Or was it the undervalued euro from a German perspective - effectively a permanent undervaluing based on an association with weaker economies sent Italy on thr toad to perditiion and helped Germany massively but when the balancing had to be done it was the ecb which means everyone.
Nicely played Germany
Ambrose Pritchard is on again about this point in the telegraph today.
