(Nigel Farage at :52)"...... but other things are going on and there's a, I really think very big story out there and you'd struggle if you went through today's newspapers to really find it, the 'Sunday Times' has done more on it than anybody else, but it's what's going on in Italy.
Often we get the impression in this country from those that wish us to remain in the European Union and would like to force a second referendum on us that we're the ones with the problem that everything in Brussels and across the EU is hunky dory.
Well its not isn't it.
Remember Catalonia, remember what's going on with Poland, with Hungary big arguments with the European Commission but tomorrow a new government will be formed in Italy.
It is made up of the Lega (League), who before were the Northern League, they now dropped the 'Northern' bit in a bid to get votes across the whole of Italy and they're joining up with the Five Star Movement.
The Lega (League) are on the Right of politics, the Five Star are just a bit to the Left.
I know both of these parties very well.
I sat for ten years in the European Parliament with the Lega and I currently sit with the Five Star Movement and the founder of it Beppe Grillo and I did a deal back in 2014.
We have before seen a government in Greece elected saying that it would break all of the rules and then in the face of Brussels deciding not to.
I wonder how significant is this Italian government tomorrow and to help us through that I'm going to go to Peter Foster, the Europe editor of 'The Daily Telegraph'........"

He is interesting.
Screw them all. Britain, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium and all of Scandinavia. Never again should Americans sacrifice their blood and treasure to save them. NATO does absolutely nothing to enhance American security. The US should dissolve this pact that will draw us into yet another costly war. Time to say goodbye and good luck to the Europeans who can’t even defend their own borders. Who really needs them?
Seriously, the friend group partner groups of political power in Italy can not get any thing done. Italy is a basket case. I wish the Italians could tell The EU to take a flying leep. I just know that Italy can not do much of anything. lets us hope that I am wrong and Italy does tell The EU to bugger off.
If France and Italy went to war, a food fight or something would probably break out.
Italy has a government? Since when? It’s been Italian anarchy since the 1950’s. Sort of like Popogigo meets Pinnochio at a pie eating contest. Always a mess; never a real winner.
Hey, I’ve got an idea. Since Comrade Fascist leader Obama is out of a job, why not make him Prime Minister? He can’t screw up Italy anymore than he did the U.S. - but he can try. (He looks like Benito when he does his chin-in-the-air power look).
Besides, Michelle would love to work on the docks of Naples. Might meet some of her Chicago buddies there.
Burlesconi has a big sign outside his home that says - MISS ME YET?
I do not think the new Italian government will be as Eurosceptic as the Brexit. Only one half of the coalition that is forming the new government is truly Eurosceptic. There will be compromises or the coalition will fail and the result will be some softening of the Eurosceptic position.
The observable political divisions in Italian politics and the Italian people are many times more numerous than the political divisions seen in the U.S. In Italy they stand out and keep Italian governments hung up by them because of how the voting system gives so many of them an independent place in Italy’s legislature. In the U.S. many political divisions are submerged within the two main parties, that are actually made up of smaller groups with differences from each other.
While their are “only” six parties with major representation in the two main Italian national legislative bodies, there are others with some representation in the national and the regional governments, from over 100 other parties.
The whole lot are not worth the blood of a single American soldier or one taxpayer dollar.
