Could Italexit Come After Italy Elections?

Tom Parfitt of the Express UK decided to write an alleged straight news piece with a rather “alarming” title, but the title immediately makes me cheer for the exact opposite result his article is intending to frighten me to not support. The Italians have a ‘problem,’ from the EU standpoint. There seems to be a strong anti-EU political movement emerging in Italy that could produce an Italexit (I think that’s what they’ll call it).

Tom, thank you for bringing to our attention something we (that is, we who support individuals and free associations over coercive associations) should be cheering on and even supporting. Let’s hear it for ITALEXIT!
