The Telegraph is not just euroskeptic but eurohostile, so it’s no surprise they are taking up the banner of democracy for others. But as in the 1930’s politics will make strange bedfellows in our time.
“We have three deaths in front of us: democracy, politics, and the Left,” said Fausto Bertinotti, the elder statesman of Rifondazione Communista and one of Italy’s great post-war figures.
“We are living in a neo-Bonapartist financial system. Not a single decision has been taken by the Italian parliament since the end of August except those imposed by the foreign power that now us under administration.”
It is still a bit weird to see AEP raising the spectre of the Red Brigades in his offensive against the eurocrats.
