The harder the EU tries to impose its globalist agenda on people in some of its member states, the less willing they will be to toe Brussels’ line, Italian journalist Marco Fontana commented on Sunday's election.
“There is a great deal of outside meddling in Italian politics, but it is coming from EU leaders, like Jean-Claude Juncker, rather than the imaginary “troll factory” in St. Petersburg,” Fontana remarked.
Juncker recently told the media "early March is very important for the EU. There will be referendums in Germany and Italy and I’m particularly worried about the outcome of the Italian elections. We need to be prepared to see the Italians failing to form a working government and, instead, having a provisional one."
Fontana slammed Juncker, saying such statements, made ahead of Sunday’s elections, as direct meddling and an attempt to influence the election outcome in a sovereign member of the European Union.
"Italian media worries more about ‘fake news’ from Russia than about statements by EU politicians, which can impact the outcome of the Italian elections," Fontana noted. The same is true of mainstream media in britain, Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria and in the USA where newspapers and broadcast news channels that were once respected around the world are still pushing the story of collaboration between President Trump and Russia swung the election when all the evidence to date shows if any collaboration took place it was between The Democrat Party and certain Russian oligarchs who contibuted to The Clinton Foundation in return for political favours.
Fontana, like many independent media commentators, believes that Brussels has failed to learn from Brexit, and the more they try to tell Europeans what to do the stronger the backlash could be. In spite of growing opposition to the Brussels agenda, the controlling bureaucracy becomes more authoritarian and more intransigent in response to every challenge.
"Let’s hope that this is exactly what is going to happen again, because the interests of the EU’s technocratic elite are starkly at variance with the interests of the Italian people!" Fontana continued.
"We have already seen the main achievements by the governments of Mario Monti (2011-2013) and Enrico Letta (2013-2014), which bled the Italian economy white, destroyed the social sphere, sent the value of Made in Italy goods down, forced the closure of many construction companies and drove dozens of business people to suicide," he emphasized.
He said that Juncker had probably tried to forestall the outcome of Sunday’s vote: if the winner fails to garner enough votes to form a Cabinet, the EU could try to persuade Italy to have a grand ruling coalition whose inability to govern will ruin the economy once again. He added that Germany had taken months to form a a new government and no one dared say that the absence of a government was weakening Europe. Italy is another matter, especially with Eurosceptic parties now leading in polls.
Juncker’s statement invited a joint chorus of condemnation from all of Italy’s political parties, save only for President Mattarella, who was the only Italian politician who refused to comment on it.
