Salvini says Italy should stop paying EU - update

Northern League says migrant crisis shows 'hoax' of Europe

(ANSA) - Milan, May 26 - Northern League leader Matteo Salvini suggested Tuesday that Italy should stop sending any money to the "cage" that is the European Union. "I would start to close taps," he told Radio Padania. "Italy should suspend its payments to the useless cage that is the EU," he added, claiming the EU is unresponsive to Italian needs. He particularly condemned an EU plan for distribution of migrants, complaining that too many will be left in Italy which he said reveals "the hoax Europe that cares" about public input.
