Italy: Master Draghi’s unity government opens the floodgates…as the arrival of illegals soar!
Draghi is now criticizing European nation states which do not want any more Afghans. Lega is part of this government, choosing to play the role as the controlled opposition, just like the pathetic CSU/EPP (Seehofer) of Germany.
It’s a shame. Draghi’s record could be worse than the last regime.
– The number of illegals arriving in Italy from Tunisia and Libya has ‘doubled’ in the first eight months of this year compared to last year. In August alone, more than 10,000 illegals arrived.
The negligence at the border is despicable but it has gone on for years in Italy…with the exception of 2019. 🧐
* Under Draghi’s unity government, the situation has gotten worse. Just utterly mind-boggling that Lega still supports this government.
Matteo Salvini recently started to protest the governments reckless open entry policy with more vigor, but he has chosen to focus on the weak interior minister instead of ‘Boss Draghi’, who appointed the pro-migration interior minister to begin with.
Moreover, facts are facts, and Salvini is part of this government coalition.
** In defense of the ‘Salvini of 2019’, no doubt, the record clearly shows that Salvini was the best interior minister of Italy…and Europe.
Despite our vigorous disagreements with his recent judgements, Salvini was abandoned in 2019 by many so-called anti-migration leaders (Sebastian Kurz especially), who were busy cozying up to the establishment and new EU Commission.
It was a missed opportunity and we remember it well.
*** It would be great if Salvini stops taking advice from Lega insiders (the party was insignificant until it took tough stance on migration) and eventually assumes this role of interior minister again…this time inside a Giorgia Meloni government.
Lega’s strategy to be considered “cool” by the EU establishment is backfiring…as evidenced by its sharp and sudden fall in the polls. Since it’s peak in 2019 (when Salvini took on the establishment), Lega has fallen almost 50% in the polls. Some strategy. 🤦♂️
