Italy: The Good and Bad News

Italy: The Good and Bad News

1) 👍 Meloni’s national-conservative FDI (ECR) is surging and reaches a new record high in the latest Ipsos poll: 20.5%. This puts them in a virtual tie for first place, the first time we have seen this.
2) 👎 the latest Ipsos poll has Lega (ID) falling into third place, behind even the left PD (S&D), the first time we have seen this in a few years.
While the V4 Report is the first and foremost supporter of Meloni (Fdl), we also like Lega even if we disagree with its recent strategy, which obviously is not working out for Salvini. Something is not right with him, but he needs to cease with the self-promotional makeover campaign.
Moreover, we detest the PD and everything they stand for.

Salvini needs to reassess his strategy of supporting this unity government of Master Draghi, who has done nothing to stop the inflows to Italy. Like Matteo Renzi, Draghi thinks the solution must focus on migrant relocations to others in the bloc, which is counterproductive and unrealistic.
Who in Lega is giving this awful advice to Salvini? The solution for Salvini/Lega is not merging with Berlusconi (EPP) or trying to “out EU” the PD, but ditching the controlled-opposition status and returning to the principles that helped Lega achieve national prominence.
Italy and Europe need both a strong Meloni and Salvini for the next elections. At this point, Salvini is losing credibility and needs to re-evaluate the advice he is getting from his inner circle of Lega, which convinced him to join this government after his initial reluctance.
Yes, we are very dismayed over Salvini’s recent judgments, but also realize how vital it is to keep the right coalition strong and united.
Does one wonder what Berlusconi and EPP Forza are up to? It’s not a party we trust in any way, shape, or form.
Something stinks here. 👇👇
Part II of the story 👉 Salvini-Berlusconi talks regarding turning an alliance into a formal federation.
It has always been understood between the three parties on the right (Lega, Meloni’s FdL, and Forza) that the party with the largest votes would produce the PM.
With Meloni gaining in the polls, is Salvini looking for another strategy to boost his polls by merging with an EPP Party in Italy led by a man stuck in a permanent mid/life crisis?
The V4 Report is beginning to seriously question Salvini’s judgment. It’s just not about him.
Now that Meloni is closing in on him, Salvini is reaching out to the EPP faction of Berlusconi and Forza. 👇
