In picking Enrico Letta, another eurofundamentalist, to replace the dreadful Monti as prime minister, Italy’s parliament has swapped gravediggers, but their country’s burial continues apace.
Ahead of a meeting between Letta and Angela Merkel, EUObserver reports:
Letta says he wants to see Europe reach its four goals of a banking union, a fiscal and economic union, as well as a political union….
Letta said both he and his government are “profoundly pro-European. . . . In the past five years of crisis we did not find sufficient solutions because there was not enough Europe. This is my objective – and also that of Germany, because both our countries have a federalist vocation…”
“Europe always advanced when Italy and Germany worked together . . . “
Oh dear. Letta is no patriot, no democrat, and no economist. It seems that he is not much of a historian either.
