‘Markets will teach Italy to vote for the right thing’: EU official’s comment causes uproar

You know what swamp is filled with nastier and uglier swamp creatures that the one that stretches from Washington DC to New York? Brussels. It is a den of crony nasties and arrogant technocrats. (They are often both.) The Germans still think they own The Continent.

Five Star leader, Luigi Di Maio, also weighed into the debate. “‘The markets will teach you to vote.’ The words of the European Commissioner, Mr. Oettinger, are absurd,” said Di Maio.

“These people treat Italy like a summer colony where they come to spend their holidays. But in a few months a government of change will be born and in Europe we will finally be respected.”

European officials were quick to distance themselves from the remark. European Commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas labelled the comment “unwise”.

“It is the Italians and only the Italians who will decide on the future of their country. Nobody else,” he said.
