    The leader of Italy's far-right League party announced on Sunday that it had reached an agreement with the anti-establishment Five Star Movement on a nominee to be the country's next prime minister. Matteo Salvini said the two eurosceptic parties had also selected members of the cabinet after intense political wrangling. "We are agreed on the head and the ministers of the government and we hope that no-one will veto a choice that represents the will of the majority of Italians," Salvini said, adding that neither he nor Five Star Movement chief Luigi Di Maio would take the role of premier....

    Italy's President is expected to confirm a coalition between the League and the Five-Star Movement (M5S) today, cementing the nation as having one of the most Eurosceptic governments on the continent. Sergio Mattarella will be asked to approve the formation of the coalition government today-the two parties have been in talks since March's election......... Luigi Di Maio, the leader of the Five Star Movement, sent a stern message to the EU yesterday by insisting that he will attempt to renegotiate EU rules as part of an effort to put Italians first.....

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II thinks European courts that protect Islamist hate preachers “denigrate” Britain and has demanded her dinner guests “Give me THREE good reasons” to remain inside the European Union (EU). The loaded challenge has been widely interpreted as an expression of Euroscepticism since the Royal biographer Robert Lacey made the revelation in a blog post in the Daily Beast. The EU and the European Court of Human Rights are known for their history of protecting the “rights” of extremists and blocking deportations. Last night Breitbart London revealed that Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem...

    Poland consolidated its rightwing shift on Sunday as the Conservative Law and Justice Party wins 242 of 460 seats in parliament, ending 8 years of centrist rule. Exit polls showed voters had handed an absolute majority to the Eurosceptic party that is against all Muslim immigration, wants Polish family-focused welfare spending and has threatened to ban abortion. For the first time in many years, it appears there will be no left wing members in Parliament. Times of Israel Poland took a decisive turn to the right in its parliamentary election Sunday, tossing out the centrist party that had governed for...

    It looks like a political oxymoron, but Jean-Marie Le Pen's National Front is poised to strike an alliance with France's large immigrant Muslim community. A generation after France's right-wing party began its surge with a tough anti-immigration campaign tinged with both racism and anti-Semitism, three factors are coming into play that could spell a strategic realignment. These factors, which are still little grasped outside political circles in France but will have an enormous impact, include: * The Islamicization of France is largely a fait accompli. It is assumed that 6 to 8 million citizens or residents of France, 10% to...

    If you ask an MP from any party where he stands on the EU, he is likely to say something like: "I want a Europe of democratic nations, working together, but keeping their own identities". Fine. Who doesn't? The trouble is that such a Europe is not on the menu.When we politicians talk about "a Europe of nations", we are being both presumptuous and dishonest: presumptuous, because it is not in our gift to dictate how other countries relate one to another; and dishonest, because we are holding out to our electorate the prospect of something that is not on...

    These new politicians have an eccentric policy goal: to destroy the Parliament to which they have been elected. Annabel Crabb reports from London.The new face of nationalism in Britain is unnaturally tanned, handsome and impeccably well known in Middle England. It belongs to Robert Kilroy-Silk, the former daytime chat show presenter who has become the British emblem of vaulting dissatisfaction with the European Union. The urbane, champagne-quaffing Kilroy-Silk campaigned in the European elections against abolition of the pound; his principal message is Save The Quid. Mr Kilroy-Silk is not short of one himself. The comfort of his 40.5-hectare estate in...

    Governing parties across Europe have expressed dismay at the European election results, which have been characterised by low turnout and significant gains by Eurosceptic and opposition parties. Anthony Browne, The Times Europe Correspondent, left, reports from Brussels. Are there discernible voting trends across Europe? There are three. The first is that electorates across Europe have massively punished incumbent governments, particularly those that have been in office for more than 12 months. This was the case in the UK, France, Germany and Italy. The second trend is the rise of the Eurosceptics. A disparate group of Eurosceptic parties made significant headway...
