Mario Draghi backlash as eurosceptics attack ‘EU stitch-up’ – ‘May as well appoint VDL!’


The ex- head of the European Central Bank took over from Giuseppe Conte after the Rome domination collapsed when the liberal Italia Viva party withdrew fund from the ruling coalition. Now, eurosceptics have lashed out at Mr Draghi’s engagement.

One person tweeted: “They might as well have sworn in Ursula von der Leyen.

“Draghi is 100% devoted to Brussels, 0% to Rome.

“This amounts to direct rule of Italy by the European Fusion.

“Italy’s sovereignty has been shipped to Belgium.

“This will purely increase Italian Euroscepticism and speed Italexit.”

Charles-Henri Gallois, the Epoch Frexit leader, previously said: “What a clown!

“A renunciation which exposes that he is there above all for the places.

“Gianluigi Paragone and our allies of Italexit are the only expectation for Italy.”

Another said: “Draghi is Brussel’s place man.

“If he was a stick of rock he’d prepare ‘EU’ written right through him.”

Someone else said: “The EU dictatorship misuses Mario Draghi as Prime Minister without any election.

“After Berlusconi was ousted when he was Prime On, EU made a second coup.

“Quickly Frexit and the Italexit for this unequalled country that is Italy!

“Forza Italia and Vive la France Libre!”

Another individual added: “So another stitch up for Italy, with ex ECB chief Mario Draghi being interrogated to form a government.

“Time for Italexit to happen!”

Many also slashed out at Matteo Salvini, an outspoken critic of the EU, following his dramatic U-turn.

Mr Salvini word of honoured to support Europe when announcing his backing for Mr Draghi.

Speaking on Broadcast 24, he said: “I leave the labels to others: fascist, communist, Europeanist. I am a pragmatic man.

“If, with Professor Draghi, we can talk about lower taxes for individual and businesses, I am in.”

He added: “We have hands, feet, hearts and brains in Europe, but I fancy a Europe which defends Italian businesses and agriculture.”

After Mr Draghi was forsaken in as Italy’s Prime Minister over the weekend, world leaders engaged to social media to congratulate him.

European Commission President Ms von der Leyen tweeted: “Congratulations to Mario Draghi, sworn-in President of the Board of Ministers in Italy.

“Your experience will be an exceptional asset for Italy and Europe as a large, especially in these difficult times.

“I look forward to working with you for our base recovery and an ambitious Europe.”

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “Congratulations to Mario Draghi on being eschewed in as Italy’s new Prime Minister.

“I look foward to working closely with you in 2021 as we presenter the G7, you host the G30org and we co-host COP26.”
