Of course they are all in the Lega del Norte. This time it is the turn of Reform Minister Roberto Calderoli.
Earlier Justice Minister Roberto Castelli entered the fray:
“Does the sterling pound not have economic foundations? Does Denmark live in poverty because it is outside the euro? Are the Swedes poor?” With these three questions Justice Minister Roberto Castelli replied to journalists, on the sidelines of a convention in Milan, which expressed the perplexities regarding the economic foundation of the proposal launched by the League to go back to the lira. “It is about making a choice: looking powerlessly at the continuous closure of our businesses that are not absolutely competitive at the moment or taking the risk of change. The League, since its foundation, has always said things that government does not like, only to find out years later that they were right.” When asked about the scenarios that will arise from the traditional, imminent League meeting in Pontida, Castelli ensured that it will be “a great event that will mark the return of Umberto Bossi. In that occasion the proposals on the lira-euro issue will be specified better.”
