Brussels threatens to withhold £172bn of Italy’s bailout funds

EU plebe states? Euros for groupthink.
Those EU recovery funds…well, like dog training, one has to please the Eurocrats first before they are rewarded with a treat.
The EU Commission expects countries to present a strategy for “greening” their economy and spending money on tackling climate change.
Not good enough!

Brussels threatens to withhold £172bn of Italy’s bailout funds. Insiders say the EU Commission is not satisfied with Rome’s so-called Recovery Plan to access a €200billion chunk of the bloc’s coronavirus bailout.

Questions have also been raised over plans set to be submitted by Bulgaria and Austria.

EU member states must submit their spending plans before being allowed to request funds from the bloc’s €750billion coronavirus recovery fund.

The V4 Report and others believe this Next Generation scheme is another step towards a federal EU. But by golly, it’s already darn close to being one.
Brussels has an insatiable thirst for power and it is gradually increasing its scope year after year.
Without more pushback, the superstate will eventually suffocate the European nation-states.
The UK was smart to bail out.
