Northern League MP expelled from House
PD are 'mafia accomplices', Buonanno says on 'empty out jails'05 February, 13:04
"(The PD are) accomplices of the mafia," read a placard waved by the member of the anti-immigrant and anti-euro party against the so-called 'empty out jails' decree.
On Tuesday Buonanno waved handcuffs against the PD, who rule with the centre-right New Centre Right. The League member recently blacked up to deliver an anti-immigrant rant to the House.
The populist regionalist party has a history of similar stunts.
The anti-establishment 5-Star Movement (M5S), ledd by firebrand comic-turned-politician Beppe Grillo, has lately taken a leaf out of the League's book.
It sparked a brawl in the House last week, blocking lawmakers' work, and aimed a string of sexist insults including rape threats at Speaker Laura Boldrini.
