As with Marine Le Pen and Geert Wilders previously, those who wish to destroy Europe are embarking on a legal witch hunt in order to hound from office Italy’s most effective politician for decades.
Italy’s hardline Interior Minister and Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini, has largely curtailed illegal migrant entry into Italy provoking the ire of those who favour open borders and cheap labour markets, whilst destroying Europe (and the wider Occident) in the process.
As a result of a judicial ruling, Salvini could face the judgement of his peers in the national parliament after a judge said he should be investigated for preventing 177 illegal migrants entering Italy.
Salvini himself remains confident the bulk of Italian MPs will back him, whilst any attempt to force him from office could lead to a massive public backlash after his personal popularity (and that of his Lega party) soared in the latest opinion polls.
Coincidentally (or not!) Salvini and the populist government in Rome have been engaged in a war of words with France.
Salvini said he looked forward to the day when the French people could free themselves from their “terrible government”. He added: “The opportunity will come on May 26th (the European elections) when finally the French people will be able to take back control of its future, destiny, pride, which are poorly represented by a character like Macron.” He continued that he felt close to “the millions of men and women who live in France under a terrible government and terrible president.” He had earlier blamed French oil interests in Libya for a lack of interest in ‘stabilising the situation’ after NATO’s ill-fated intervention in 2011, which helped exacerbate the illegal migrant flow into Italy.
France has been rocked by massive violent protests since November last year by the so-called ‘Yellow Vests’ who object to the naked plutocracy of Macron’s neo-liberal government.
