The unelected EU Commission have now formally rejected the budget of Italian government in an unprecedented move. They will now demand a new budget from Italy ready within three weeks. Who the hell do they think they are?
Westmonster has previously reported on how the Italian government had to submit their budget to be approved by Brussels, with the EU having briefed out they were likely to veto to. Democracy, EU style!
EU Commissioner Valdis Dombrovskis has now confirmed: “For the first time the Commission is obliged to request a Euro area country to revise its draft budgetary plan.
“But we see no alternative than to request the Italian authorities to do so.”
The fiercely Eurosceptic Italian Deputy PM Matteo Salvini had previously made clear that he stood behind the budget that was submitted: “We do not multiply bread and fish, but certainly our economic manoeuvre will make Italians better.”
Before this overruling of elected politicians, only 44% of those in Italy said they would back remaining in the EU. That number may well now fall even further.
Brexit Britain’s Nigel Farage responded by saying: “Italy has three weeks to respond to the Brussels gangsters, this is national democracy versus globalist bureaucracy.”
You can either be an independent nation, or you can be ruled from Brussels.
