#THREAD to try to make sense of #Italy’s govt crisis: PM Conte will address the Senate at 15.00CET today. No vote of confidence is scheduled but it could be called by the League UNLESS PM uses the speech to announce his resignation. The latter is the most likely scenario. 1/n
If #Conte resigns Pres Mattarella will hear representatives from all parties & decide whether to: a) let PD/5Stars form a new govt; b) install a caretaker govt to pass the budget; c) call a snap election. Italy hasn’t seen a general election in the fall since 1919. 2/n
The reason for avoiding elections in the fall is the national #budget: deadline for approval is Dec 31. #Italy must send a draft of its 2020 one to @EU_Commission in early Oct. Running a campaign, an election and installing a new govt in the midst of it all is no joke. 3/n

Ho seguito la prima mezz’ora della maratona sulla #CrisiDiGoverno di @byoblu e mi sono dovuto fermare per la nausea. Dato che i grillini da ieri straparlano, mettiamo in chiaro qualche punto:
1) il governo era già morto dopo il voto ortottero per la #vonderLeyen. Quest’agonia era necessaria per arrivare alla conversione del decreto sicurezza bis;
2) il #M5S ha fatto una chiara scelta di adesione all’europeismo liturgico, sedendosi di fatto accanto a Macron. Fare la manovra finanziaria con loro e con Tria al MEF, quando la tua intenzione è fare una manovra coraggiosa ed espansiva è semplicemente IMPENSABILE;

#LaStrateggia" della Lega di cui vaneggiano Borghi e Donato non è mai esistita. L'intera Lega si è adeguata al volere di Rinaldi-Giorgetti e #ScenariEconomici

Dopo una conversazione surreale, Scenari mi dedica un articolo
#maratonamentana
#vonderLeyen
#M5S
La conversazione twitter comincia con un tweet di Gustinicchi, che, però non mi cita. Come per la "strategia" su #VdL deve essere vizio il dire le cose senza che gli altri lo sappiano.
Interessante notare, però, che le persone che io ho citato NON sono di Scenari. Son passanti?
Il Tweet di Gustinicchi mi è stato indicato e, con cortesia, rispondo che se vuole posso mettere la rettifica: Becchi, Palma e da Landriano non appartengono a Scenari Economici, ma la risposta è quella in pic.

Thread on a chat I just had with @Nigel_Farage on @LBC he got a little angry and hung up on me! Never answered my question give it a retweet

The call went like this;

Me: Hi Nigel could you apologise for calling the EU anti democratic, when you just voted on @vonderleyen.
Nigel: #vonderLeyen was the only candidate, I wouldn't call that democratic!

Me: how many candidates were there for @brexitparty_uk leader?

Nigel: Well I'm the only member so I voted for me!

Me: so undemocraticlly elected by yourself with no other candidates or votes?
Nigel: spluttered anger....

Call ends!

So @Nigel_Farage care to Apologise for your lies? Or hypocricy?

Ursula #vonderLeyen may become the most hard core EU-federalist EC President ever. She'll push for:

I. Wild transfers of powers to the EU
II. Hard EU regulation
III. Ever more transfers of European taxpayers' money
IV. EU protectionism

An overview of what she has promised:
I. Wild transfers of powers to the EU:

- Scrapping of national vetoes in foreign policy, energy and climate
- Annual rule of law monitoring mechanism for all member states
- A conference on the future of Europe (Macron's idea) to improve the Spitzenkandidatensystem by 2020
I. Wild transfers of powers to the EU (part 2):

- Greater immigration burden sharing
- 10k border guards by 2024
- Right of legislative initiative for the EP

II. Hard EU regulation:

- Reduce EU emissions by 50% in 2030
- An EU minimum wage
- Gender quotas for company boards

Es muy probable que Ursula von der Leyen será apoyada mañana por una mayoría neoliberal del Parlamento Europeo, con los votos de EPP-PPE, Renew Europe (con dudas), ECR, ID (extrema derecha) y la mitad de S&D (por ejemplo el @PSOE, ¡Vergüenza!). #PlenoPE eldiario.es/internacional/…
Como era de esperar, la "Gran Coalición" del Parlamento Europeo (derecha, liberales, socialdemocracia) seguirá existiendo. Así es el PSOE, garante de las políticas de y para las élites.
Hay muchas razones por las que el Parlamento Europeo debería votar contra Ursula von der Leyen para presidir la Comisión Europea: su política económica, su apoyo a la OTAN y la militarización o su falta de ambición en cambio climático. ¿Y en política comercial? #EPlenary #PlenoPE

Ein extrem rechter #Soldat der #Bundeswehr soll laut #WeltamSonntag / @investigativ_de im Juni 2017 in #München ein Attentat auf die Bundesverteidigungsministerin Ursula #vonderLeyen vorgehabt haben. Ein #thread dazu.
Es geht um Samstag, 24.06.2017. Von der Leyen besuchte damals die #Bundeswehruniversität in München-Neubiberg & einen "Beförderungsappell" mit 600 Soldat_innen am Schloss Nymphenburg. Die Sicherheitsvorkehrungen waren extrem hoch, Pressefotograf_innen durften nicht nah ran etc.
Die Gefahr durch einen von einem oder mehreren Rechten Soldaten verübten Anschlag wurde also sehr ernst genommen. Es gab eine Hausdurchsuchung und ein Ermittlungsverfahren der Staatsanwaltschaft München.

To the English reading security bubble. There is a lot of noise on German twitter and in the media regarding the nomination of German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen as the candidate for the position of the next president of the European Commission. /2 #EUCO #vonderleyen
Quite of a lot of these comments, especially by the coalition partner @spdde are defamatory. the reasoning is mostly along the lines, that no one in Brussels knows her, that she mismanaged the #Bundeswehr and so on and so forth. Let me give you some /3
facts about her almost 6 years in office. Under her leadership,
*Germany saw an unprecedented increase in its defense budget
*Germany took the lead in NATO's efforts to deter Russia

In case it's useful, a few points about Ursula von der Leyen as seen from Berlin:
- Yes, her defense ministry is seen as scandal-plagued, with major equipment problems & a handful of sleaze allegations.
- However the gigantic apparatus was long this way & a known as a political "ejector seat" for legions of ambitious pols. No one expected her to hold on this long (since 2013) but she's paid a high price in popularity (2nd from bottom in latest minister ranking).
- A political moderate from Merkel's CDU, she was staunchly loyal to her during the 2015-16 refugee influx. But she cornered the chancellor as labor minister with a drive for boardroom gender quotas after industry failed during a decade of voluntary measures to make headway.
