    Default Beppe Grillo: "Northern Europe waiting to drop Italy like a hot potato"

    Telling the German business paper Handelsblatt that his Five Star Movement was “the French revolution – without the guillotine”, he added: “The northern European countries are only holding onto us until their banks have recouped their investments in Italian sovereign bonds. Then they’ll drop us like a hot potato.”


    Beppe Grillo: Northern Europe waiting to drop Italy like a hot potato - New Articles - The Independent

    Peter Matthews' view that Irish Banks need another €60 Billion was augmented somewhat yesterday with the Govt's rehashed position on the Mortgage Timebomb but Ireland had a good day at the Bond Markets & the state of our Banks slipped unnoticed.

    Also going unreported in the Media is the worsening Spanish & Greek Economic maelstrom.

    Italy however could eventually prove too big to ignore with the rise of Beppe G & that Berlo Comback making waves.

    What is the Eurosceptic gameplan in Italy?

    What will be the real consequences of the rise of Euroscepticism in Italy- if any?

    Is it remotely possible that the Treaty of Rome could eventually be torn up in Rome?

    or as Beppo states could Italy get the boot?

    In short. No.

    The collapse of Italy would be a nightmare for Northern Europe, so of course they're not.

    They're looking for Italy to get it's act together and to stop dragging them down, which I think is fair enough.

    The whole Maastricht Treaty and everything that followed it needs to be ripped up. It's the only way to keep the EU intact and avoid massive social unrest.

    Why don't you start a party? You have all the one line answers, so should be easy.

    Yep all the Germans fault. Nothing to do with Italians constantly electing shysters, their corrupt political system and their inability to accept that cuts and changes are necessary.

    Even if the Italian government and the whole EU announced that Italy was leaving the euro, it wouldn't leave the euro. Italians would ignore the decree.

    The Italians need to be able to devalue their currency to make their exports competitive. No one is going to buy a Fiat over a Volkswagon if they are the same price.
