Yeahhhh this is still going on. The Italian election really threw up a lot of complications. Salvini’s Lega Nord got the most votes within their coalition (with Berlusconi’s Forza Italia), and it was that coalition that won the overall vote. But the coalition combined didn’t have enough to form a government.
That left the option of some coalition, which Salvini initially refused to do, as he held the Five Star Movement to be cuckservatives who never actually stick to their guns. And of course, the big question is ‘Who will be the Premier?’
The anti-mass migration populist La Lega party is polling in second place nationally, passing the former ruling Democratic Party (PD), as leader Matteo Salvini works to form a government with the Five Star Movement.
The Bidimedia poll puts La Lega at 20 per cent – ahead of the PD, which is at 18 per cent, but still behind the Five Star Movement (M5S) which remains the single largest party in the country at 34 per cent.
La Lega shocked many by winning a larger vote share than their coalition partner Forza Italia (FI) in the Italian national election in March, and now leads the centre-right coalition which beat the standalone M5S on election day.
As a result of the election, La Lega leader Matteo Salvini, known for his fiery rhetoric against mass migration and for promising to deport 500,000 illegal migrants, has put himself forward to be the next Italian Prime Minister.
Initially, Salvini refused to consider the possibility of a deal with M5S despite both parties being anti-establishment, Eurosceptic, and anti-mass migration. “The 5-Stars have changed their minds too many times and on too many topics, so for me it’s a big ‘no’,” Salvini said.
In recent weeks, the Italian firebrand has been more open to the idea of a populist coalition, holding consultations with M5S leader Luigi Di Maio this week.
Talks have already run into a major hurdle as Di Maio has demanded that Forza Italia leader and former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi not be allowed in the new government. La Lega has since replied to Di Maio, saying that Berlusconi is a part of the centre-right coalition and that Di Maio must speak with all the parties in the coalition and not just one.
“Salvini needs to choose between the revolution and the restoration, whether to abandon Berlusconi and start to change Italy or remain attached to Berlusconi and not change anything,” Di Maio said Tuesday.
The key message here is that the alt-right is winning. Salvini can’t truly be called an alt-right leader. But he is a leader for the alt-right. He has proven that he is committed to sorting out this mess of an invasion from the 3rd world that Italy is currently plagued in, he doesn’t have any time for Islam or talk of integration, and he’s got that passion that captures people’s hearts, and is so rare nowadays.
People need a true leader to follow. They are sick of suits who stand by and bullshit while you get invaded.
There are rumours that he wants to make Tommy Robinson the ambassador for England and give him citizenship so ha can make him Minister in charge of ‘cleaning the streets’…
