Juncker will have to 'lump' budget says Salvini

'And drink some coffee' says interior minister

(ANSA) - Spoleto, October 16 - Interior Minister Matteo Salvini said Tuesday "Juncker? the Italian budget has passed.
    Let him like it or lump it, and drink some coffee".
    The deputy premier was responding to the European Commission chief's earlier assertion that other member States would be irked if the EC let Italy off lightly on its 2.4% deficit-to-GDP ratio in next year's budget.
    Juncker said the EC could not allow Italy's "slippage" from budget orthodoxy. Salvini replied "the slippages have arrived in these years from Europe which has brought precariousness and insecurity to an entire continent".
