Berlusconi wants euro exit unless EU policy changes - update

Italy, France, Ireland, Portugal may be forced out, says ex-PM

(see related) (ANSA) - Rome, May 6 - Ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi, the leader of the opposition centre-right Forza Italia (FI) party, said Tuesday that Italy and other countries may be forced to drop the euro unless the policies of the European Union and the European Central Bank (ECB) change. "The idea of leaving the euro seems adventurous to me, but if we don't manage to change the policy of the ECB and the EU, reality will impose this on us, on France, on Ireland and Portugal," Silvio Berlusconi said on Italian radio.
