EU on the brink: Farage and Soros warn Italy to follow UK with Italexit in rare deal | Politics | New



He also said he was “delighted” at the tougher tactics employed by Boris Johnson’s government in the latest negotiations with the EU.

But with a decision on whether or not to extend the impending transition period, he warned that the Tories could still betray Britain at the expense of Europe.

The Brexit Party leader’s comments come after the astonishing admission of pro-European billionaire businessman George Soros that he also believes Italians are on the verge of resigning.

Mr Soros, who has reportedly helped fund pro-remnant groups and has been criticized for being one of the EU’s biggest supporters, also revealed he wanted to create “perpetual bonds” that would lock countries in. the institution forever, even if it was against the democratic will of its constituents.

The coronavirus crisis has put a strain on the weakening of the EU and Italy is furious at the way it has been abandoned by its European partners who have refused to provide medical supplies or economic aid without the Italy does not cede government functions to Brussels.

In an interview with Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf, Mr Soros said: “I am particularly concerned about Italy. What would remain of Europe without Italy? Italy was the most pro-European country.

“Italians trusted Europe more than their own governments, and for good reason. But they were mistreated during the 2015 refugee crisis.

“The EU applied the so-called Dublin Regulations which put the full burden on countries where refugees first landed and offered no financial burden sharing.

“That’s when the Italians decide to vote for Matteo Salvini’s Lega and the Five Star Movement in a landslide.

“More recently, the relaxation of state aid rules, which favor Germany, has been particularly unfair to Italy, which was already the sick man of Europe and then the hardest hit by COVID- 19. “

In response, Mr Farage said: “I am truly amazed for the first time in my life to find that I totally agree with George Soros.

“Italy has suffered terribly since joining the wrong currency and when the Covid 19 crisis hit the EU did not offer a hand of friendship.”

He added that Italy’s problems underline why Britain must complete the work of exiting the EU and end the transition period in time on December 31.

The remnants and the EU are pushing the UK government to extend the transition, which would mean that, even if it is not a member, Britain would still have to obey EU rules and pay even more money. money in the coffers of Brussels.

But Britain’s chief negotiator David Frost and Cabinet Minister Michael Gove have insisted the transition will not be prolonged.

Mr Frost also wrote to Mr Barnier, the EU’s chief negotiator, outlining Britain’s conditions for an agreement that includes banning access to our fishing waters or subjecting them to EU laws.

Mr Farage said: “I am absolutely delighted with David Frost’s letter to Michel Barnier; this is exactly the right tone. But I’ve already been disappointed with the Conservatives about Europe, so we’ll see what happens.
