Are we at Vaffa day between Pd and 5Stelle? The spark that threatens to blow up Giuseppe Conte’s red-yellow government is the Mes. The dem secretary, Nicola Zingaretti, has returned to ask that the executive to stop “prevaricating” and drawing on European funds – resources that are anything but “free”, it must be said – with an appeal to the grillini and the prime minister. In response, the Minister of Economic Development sent the request back to the sender causing the Pd to go haywire.
“Minister Patuanelli claims that the position of the M5s on the Mes does not change. Every now and then the grillini come back to the ‘Vaffa day’ with their mind”, declares the dem Stefano Pedica. “It is a pity that they now have government responsibilities and that times have changed. And above all, after the coronavirus, our country has changed, which now more than ever needs responsible people with a broad vision of the future”.
“You have to have courage, vision and concreteness, also to get the discussion on the Mes out of the current confrontation anchored to the past and instead focus it on the opportunities and possible things to do for the common good”, said the Gypsies in an intervention on the Courier of the evening. “The Mes – added the governor of Lazio and secretary of the Democratic Party – has been criticized and fought by many, but now it is a financial instrument totally different from that of the past (…). The motionless dance of words, slogans, cunning let us leave them to the right, we also in our party devote ourselves to giving answers to people and rebuilding Italy together “.
But “the position of the Movement does not change”, as reiterated by Minister Patuanelli, leading exponent of the 5 Star Movement. “Patuanelli maintains that the position of the 5 Star Movement on the Mes funds for health does not change and remains the same as months ago1 Exactly, this is exactly the problem. In these months everything has changed, in Europe tools have been put in place never seen before and standing still just means being shortsighted and irresponsibly ideological “replies in a note the deputy group leader of the Democratic Party in the House, Michele Bordo. The majority of Giuseppe Conte wobbles over European funds for the coronavirus crisis and this tear seems decisive this time.
