Matteo Salvini of Lega sent a warning to the bureaucrats in Brussels after the Pro-EU Italian President vetoes anti-Euro Economy Minister after he was selected by the Five Star Movement and Lega.
Salvini aired his dissatisfaction on Twitter; “No more servants than anyone, Italy is not a colony, we are not slaves of Germans or French, of the spread or the finance.
“At this point, with honesty, consistency and courage ever, the word must come back to you!! I’m not quitting.”
He went as far as to demand an election, stating; “If we are in a democracy, the only thing left to do is give the word back to the Italian people”.
Salvini then decided to take to Facebook to live-stream a message to around 70,000 people, a couple hours later it has now reached around 2.8 million viewers. Without the power of social media Salvini, Lega and the Five Star Movement never would of took of they are truly utilising platforms like Facebook to get the truth to the people.
Italy is undergoing a populist revolution.
The ordinary people in Italy are frustrating with the establishment and not having their voices heard in Brussels. I suspect Matteo Salvini will not be far from the change that is coming to Italy.
