If too hard-pressed, the Italian government could play the Glass-Steagall/bank separation card, as financial meltdown threatens.
On May 29, just two days after Italian State President Mattarella rejected the list of ministers presented y Prime Minister designate Giuseppe Conte, the chairwoman of MoviSol Liliana Gorini issued a statement under the above title. She wrote:
On May 27, in Rome, the “populist” government put together by M5S and Lega, the two parties that had won the parliamentary elections, was rejected, in what can only be called a cold coup. The coup was executed by State President Mattarella, but the real string-puller is the ECB. Thus, the oh-so-democratic European elite has once again made perfectly clear that if they are not satisfied with the choice of the voters, they will disregard it!
