In response to Chris McGovern: Let’s get out before Italy falls on top of us,
If Italy leaves the euro – which would be a wise long-term decision though painful in the short term – it will have to leave the EU, since leaving the euro once you have joined is against EU rules.
That is why the EU is desperate to keep Italy in both the euro and the EU, where the only way for it to deal with its debt problem is to impoverish the country. The EU has shown with Greece that it is willing to do this. The only countries it would change the rules for are Germany and France – who are of course the two countries that inflicted the euro on the EU in the first place.

If, as you say, the EU is in ‘celebratory mode’ over the situation in Italy, those running the show are more foolish than I believe them to be and the celebration will be short-lived unless Brussels attempts some sort of jiggery-pokery as it did with Greece. Salvini will become even more popular outside the coalition. As Barbara Kolm (Austrian economist) said in 2013, the EU will ‘not exist in its present form in ten years’ and predicted much of what has happened since. She told us that the EU’s response to the people’s demand for change and reform would be ever more integration and a drawing of power to the centre, as it slowly destroys countries’ sovereignty and autonomy in every area of people’s lives, aided and abetted by the puppets within member governments.
Bernard Connolly’s book The Rotten Heart of Europe has always been a must-read for anyone wishing to inform themselves of the corruption within the EC. He was a senior economist within the EC and when his book was published Helmut Kohl attempted to get it banned in Germany. Connolly was sacked and visited by the EU’s Security Service, which no one ever mentions, along with Marta Andreasen, another whistleblower who was sacked and shut down when as senior accountant for the whole EU budget she attempted to make it more transparent and to root out its fraud. Remainers would do well to acquaint themselves with these two authors.
Barbara Kolm also predicted the social unrest that is evidenced in countries such as France, which the MSM does not wish us to know about but is now in its 42nd week of protests, up to 200 people have had life-changing injuries inflicted upon them during this time and include shattered jaws and eyes destroyed. A French journalist is keeping a list of all those whose who are injured.
