hot shock a On Tuesday (La7) between the deputy of Green Alliance-Italian Left, Francesca PiccolottiAND Italo Bocchinoformer center-right parliamentarian and editorial director of The century of Italy. The topic of debate is Meloni government maneuverabout which the secretary of the Italian Left expresses doubts: “There is a big difference between taxing diapers and taxing luxury cars, between raising VAT on sanitary napkins and increasing it on yachts, between making millionaires pay an inheritance and Take away healthcare from ordinary citizens.”
Bocchino immediately and repeatedly interrupts her: “Let’s make the girl pay something soumahoro’s wife. You nominated the husband, who lived in a very luxurious villa paid for by his wife with the money she stole from immigrants’ food. You and your husband nominated him.“.
“We did not nominate the wife of Soumahoro, who is not under investigation – Piccolotti answers – I imagined it would be like this: every time a topic is debated, there are “they” who always bring up something else. I remember they are there dozens of center-right prisoners in Parliament and elected them.
And he explains: “We nominated Soumahoro but we didn’t know anything about this story, which we were probably naive about. We are certainly very disappointed and also a little angry. Soumahoro is not under investigation and is no longer in our group“.
“He also lived in luxury,” says Bocchino.
“The difference between us and you – responds the deputy – is that, when someone does not pay their employees and lives in luxury, they end up outside our group. His minister Santanchè did not pay compensation to the workers, but she is still a minister and remains in the Brothers of Italy“.
“He paid for everything,” responds Bocchino about the Minister of Tourism investigated by the Milan prosecutor’s office accused of false accounting and bankruptcy.
Piccolotti responds: “And I ignore all the prisoners there are.” in the League and in Fratelli d’Italia. There is Giuseppe Castiglione, former member of Forza Italia, in action today: was convicted of fraud in Cara di Mineo. He comes from their ranks and made money from immigrants, but you never stigmatized him.”
