Italy on the edge of crisis: Should Europe be worried?




Share prices across Europe have slumped over the latest political crisis in Italy. The country could be facing yet more elections within months.

The populist Five Star and League parties failed to form a governing coalition after the Italian president, Sergio Mattarella, rejected a leading eurosceptic as economy minister. The technocrat Carlo Cottarelli has been charged with forming an interim government – but its future already looks doomed before its even been created.

  1. With the euro Italy cannot spend to much at the expense of their currency as they used to do with the Lira. In exchange they got low interest rates. While other countries restructered their economy, Italy kept on protecting the elderly and ate their youth. Young people in Italy should realize that not the EU is their enemy, but their own country policies.

  2. So the people vote, the elites ignores it because it doesn't go the way they want. That's modern democracy, apparently. The way things are going, that's a sign of things to come in other EU countries.

  3. The UK must have at least 10 million "near the poverty area"!!! It's not just Italy, it's the UK, the U.S., Spain, Portugal, pretty much the whole of Africa, and swathes or Asia!

  4. Italians are tired of being told what to do from ipocrites…it's easy to say, help someone while watching from safe distance…the new italian govern choose to take a stand and speak for a right cause.
    No offense, but as an italian, i cant understand how foreign people can judge a country that is the only one that actively helped a large amount of immigrants with basic needs : a roof, something to wear, and to eat. All that graving on the citizen taxes, no help from Europe or Usa btw.

  5. The Italians know how we on the right in America feel. The people in Italy have to deal with the fake news as well it seems! My prayers to Italy and may it be great again!

  6. PROPAGANDISTIC GARBAGE FROM JEW MEDIA. BUT AT LEAST, UNLIKE THE PBS("PUBLIC" BROADCASTING STATION) VIDEOS, THESE CLOWNS DON'T DISABLE "PUBLIC" COMMENTS FROM THEIR VIDEOS, THEREBY BECOMING A DICTITORIAL LOUDSPEAKER FOR JEWS WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THE TRADITIONAL CULTURES IN EUROPE AND NORTH AMERICA. THIS IS ALL GOOD, HOWEVER, BECAUSE NOW, LIKE NEVER BEFORE, THERE IS A LONG DOCUMMENTED UNMISTAKEABLE HISTORY OF NEFARIOUS DOINGS BY JEWS WHO ARE TRYING TO DESTROY THE WEST. AND MOST DELICIOUSLY, IN THE FUTURE, IT WILL BE NOT THEM, BUT THE THING THEY LOVE THE MOST- THEIR OFFSPRING, HUNTED DOWN LIKE THE AGGRESSIVE SUBHUMAN ANIMALS THAT THEY ARE. EVERYTHING WILL COME TO LIGHT AND ALL PEOPLES IN THE WORLD WILL SEE WHAT THEY DO WHEN TREACHEROUS JEWS ARE LET INTO A SOCIETY.

  7. Instead of banning memes, trying to skew elections, filter FB news and import the third world that will vote for their chosen parties, why don't the EU just announce citizens will no longer be able to vote for their future, all countries are dissolved into one totalitarian state and freedom is gone. At least that would be some honesty for a change.

  8. When all of you Europeans see schools shootings and wonder why Americans don't submit to common sense knife control …. Ahem ahem.. I mean gun control … This is why.. 20 years after government disarmamant of the people they take your rights away … Freedom of speech , freedom of the press and now your vote …. Wowsers…

  9. The Euro makes no sense, and Italy in the Euro makes even less sense. A political currency, formed for political reasons, and without an independent central bank to regulate it is simply not viable. Italy, moreover, is a very different economy from Germany, with different fiscal and industrial bases. The idea that such an economy would be tied to German standards is untenable.

  10. This is pure bullshit… the people are happy and they set an example for us to follow before islam rapes everything you love about your homeland, why do you think they had to edit in a storm to make you think it's bad there when the reality is that the people as HAPPY ABOUT THIS CHANGE!!!!!!!!! bought and paid for media by Goerge Soros and the EU Union. Enjoy the quiet rape of your children just like all of us here in England and the rest of the EU!!

  11. It's an insult to the voting public. To appoint an unknown, pro-EU, IMF banker. It's everything the Italian people voted against!

  12. ["Likewise Mr Snow can you describe the UK as a democracy? – Brexit springs to mind 17.5 Million people voted to leave which is a clear majority but it seems some people who don't like the result are attempting to subvert the result"]
