Lega's Salvini: Euro is wrong currency, we are working on Plan B

The Leader of Italy’s Eurosceptic, anti-mass migration Lega party has hit out at the Euro single currency once more, insisting that a government he led would ignore EU rules on it.

“If necessary, we will ignore the 3% ceiling,” Matteo Salvini has said in reference to EU rules that warn countries must not run annual deficits higher than 3% of economic output.

He is reported as saying: “The Euro is, and remains, a mistaken currency.

“There is no way to leave alone in a sudden way. Our experts are working on a plan B”.

He also accused journalists of “pumping out the propaganda of the European Union”.

Looks like Brussels have got their hands full with this guy – and he could be the next Italian Prime Minister!
