<p>The Sunday Times reports <a href="">Matteo Salvini, Leader of Italy’s Right, Warns EU is ‘Swindling’ Britain Out of Brexit</a>.</p>

<p>In an exclusive interview with The Sunday Times, Matteo Salvini urges Theresa May to adopt a tougher stance in her Brexit negotiations with the EU, saying:<strong> “My experience in the European parliament tells me you either impose yourself or they swindle you.”</strong></p>

<p>The far-right interior minister, a former MEP and considered Italy’s most powerful politician, says <strong>May should be prepared to walk away without a deal: “Because on some principles there is no need to be flexible and you should not go backwards.”</strong></p>

<p>He also accuses the EU of trying to punish the UK for voting to leave the bloc: <strong>“There is no objectivity or good faith from the European side.” </strong>The leader of the anti- immigrant League party made an extraordinary intervention as May dispatched members of her cabinet across Europe to sell her Chequers deal.</p>

<p><strong>“I remember the referendum stage as an example of participation and freedom; I hope it can be an opportunity for the British.”</strong></p>

<p>He added that the Italian government would welcome one-to-one talks with May.</p>

<h3><u><strong>No Opposition</strong></u></h3>

<p>Salvini is the effective leader of Italy. He is the one calling the shots.</p>

<p>Five-Star, part of the current coalition, is also anti-EU. The way Italy's parliament is structured, 60% is a massive majority.</p>

<p><strong>There is no real opposition to the current government. The EU will not be pleased to say the least.</strong></p><img src="" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>
