Claude highlights some craziness in Italy:
After a wave of ugly rhetoric and dubious policies, a number of northern Italian councils run by the far-right Northern League (Silvio Berlusconiâ€™s biggest coalition partner in government) have gone on the rampage against anything foreign.
Top of the list, the town of Capriate, 20 miles from Milan, where the council announced a ban on kebab and â€˜ethnicâ€™ shops from the town centre. The news hasnâ€™t reached the foreign press yet, so youâ€™ll have to be able to understand Italian if you want to find out more here and here.
In a nutshell, a council ordinance tabled by the Northern League bans all â€˜ethnicâ€™ shops and businesses from Capriate town centre.
This is what happens when you have a population over-run by the sort of wingnuts who go around screaming about ‘dhimmification’ and ‘multiculturalism gone mad’. Italy is about half a step away from an official fascist state and yet hardly much is said about it. Why isn’t anyone taking the entire country to the European Court of Human Rights? Why aren’t we chucking Italy out of the EU?
