    I'm ashame as a European, always in crisis as our politicians don't plan. Block all aid and visas for any country that don't take back their citizens directly

      This is the plan and it's working. Nothing significant will be done.

    She will do nothing because if they turn the boats back, that means the UK can send the boats back to France

    The locals are outnumbered. I can't see how they can keep control of Lampedusa, because there will be another 100 thousand arriving by the end of the year as it will be a free trip to free housing and accommodation and healthcare in Italy. The local citizens may as well give up their homes now and ask if they may be given a shelter and some water and give the migrants their homes. They will be overpowered soon anyway.

    If Georgia Meloni 🇮🇹 were wise - she should distance herself from the EU 🇪🇺 - which is now more or less a military alliance too.
    The Chinese 🇨🇳 BRI could be the greatest achievement for Italy unless she simply doesn't understand it yet.

      The Chinese want BRI exactly because Italy is in the EU.

      Lol the EU has its faults but casting their lot with China is probably the worst thing Italy can do. Bast case scenario Italy starts ignoring the EU and starts doing its own thing like Hungary and Poland
