Italy’s ‘Super Mario’ Draghi Wins Parliament Backing For New Govt

Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi on Thursday secured final parliamentary approval for his government of national unity, allowing him to focus on his country’s unprecedented health and economic crisis. The lower house, the Chamber of Deputies, backed the former European Central Bank (ECB) chief and his mixed cabinet team of technocrats and politicians with 535 votes in favour, 56 against and five abstentions.

Matteo Salvini’s hardcore supporters lose faith in their ‘Capitano’

For years Matteo Salvini was their “Capitano”, a fearless hero who antagonised Brussels and toured Italy in a T-shirt emblazoned with the slogan “no more euro”. Now the one-time poster child of anti-euro populism has enthusiastically embraced a new Italian government led by Mario Draghi, the former central banker credited with saving the single currency Salvini once vowed the country would quit.

Salvini has a problem. His Lega business backers will lose if Italy leaves the Euro with a big devaluation. There is a division between those with money who are afraid to leave the Euro and those with no money who have nothing to lose.

Salvini gave up on leaving the Euro at the last parliamentary elections. This is not new it is just clearer.
The Brothers themselves are not that clear they are prepared to ditch the euro.

Anyone or any group in power is in power because they’re part of the agenda. And it they didn’t start off as part of the agenda, they are always infiltrated/subverted in order to make them part of the agenda. Only individuals are feared.

Either Salvini was a trojan horse from the beginning or Salvini was compromised long ago. Let’s go to the videotape. The EU doesn’t “fail”. This is all part of the long-range plan.
