- ‘EU MASSACRED Italy!’ Salvini Lashes Out at Sanctions Threat from ‘Franco-German EU’

MATTEO Salvini has sent a stern warning to the EU accusing the Brussels bloc of “massacring” Italy’s agriculture and fishing as he defied sanctions threats over his government’s rejected budget plan.
The Italian Deputy Prime Minister claimed he was not worried about possible sanctions the European Union may impose on Italy if a new budget plan is not presented within three weeks as requested by the Brussels bloc. Mr Salvini argued the EU has sanctioned Italy many times in the past resulting in the “massacre” of its agriculture, fishing and commerce. The Italian eurosceptic minister claimed the EU is run by France and Germany as Brussels only seems to serve their best interests.
He said: “They have sanctioned us thousands of times. They have massacred our agriculture, our fishing, our commerce. “But France and Germany haven’t respected the EU parameters for years. “If there is a rule that tells you that on Wednesdays you wear white, on Wednesdays you wear white. “If I wear white, and the French wear yellow, and the Germans wear blue but then they sanction me, the only idiot who respects the rules, I am then led to believe that the Franco-German European Union only serves the interests of France and Germany. “That said, we are calm. We don’t go back.”
