Italy’s Salvini: EU Commission President Juncker has “ruined Europe and Italy”

Deputy premier Matteo Salvini has suggested EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker had “ruined Europe and our country.” Disputes over Italy’s budget with the EU come ahead of next year’s EU elections.

The far-right, Euroskeptic head of Italy’s League party appeared to strengthen his line against EU opposition to Italy’s tax-cutting budget on Friday.

Speaking at an agricultural trade fair in Rome, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said: “The EU said yes to (past) budgets that impoverished Italy and made its situation precarious.”

“So I don’t get up in the morning thinking about the judgment that people like Juncker and (EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre) Moscovici, who have ruined Europe and Italy, have of the government and of Italy,” Salvini added.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
