d’Andria is rapidly becoming a thought leader on Eurozone current affairs and has just been giving his opinions on the future of the Euro to one of the UK’s most widely read newspapers, the Daily Mail.
The opinion piece pitches the Euro as a “mutual suicide pact” for weaker members of the EU. The columnist, Nick Wood, explains how many EU countries are re-thinking their commitment to the single currency.
He writes: “Even in Italy, one of the most pro-European of EU states, the ground is shifting. The newly reconstituted PSDI party – the successor to the Social Democrats who ruled the country for 50 years – is far more Eurosceptic, branding the imposition of the technocrat Mario Monti as Italian PM as a “coup” and a “denial of democracy”.
“Its new national secretary Renato d’Andria has floated the idea of Italy quitting the EU as well as the euro and switching its gaze to the south where it could lead the formation of a new entity, the Mediterranean Union, made of countries from southern Europe, North Africa and parts of the Middle East.”
