EU warns Italy: Change budget or face the consequences


European Parliament President Antonio Tajani has warned Italy that its citizens will “suffer” the price of a “bad budget” unless its government makes significant changes to its plans.

“We’ll see if Italy wants to change the budget,” said Tajani, “it is a matter of substance.” “Changing manners is good, but the content is more important.

It is not a good budget. If they change it, the judgment of Europe will change. “The problem is trusting a government that makes a very serious mistake. If it does not fix it, Italians will pay the price.”
