Lorenzo FONTANA is a member of the vile racist, sexually intollerant, xenophobic Lega Nord, which not only espouses and incites violence in pursuit of its political aims but also practices such violence this Italian party expelled from the Independence & Democracy Group by Farage following clear allegations of racist behaviour. That party is partly defined by its homophobia.
With hindsight it seems Farage did not act on principles but seemingly for personal gain in the IndDemGroup as he seems all too willing to prostitute his party, his Country and his principles now that it happens to suit him financially and in terms of authority in forming his squalid Pan EU Political Party grouping of The EFD.
It is also noted his untrustworthy and duplicitous little side kick Mark Croucher is also acting with Farage to assist in the promotion of this Racist homophobic claque when previously he made much of telling lies about people to try to damage them by falsely branding them as anti Jewish, BNP supporters and anti homosexual based on his own concocted lies. We note it is he who actually practices and assists these disgusting values!
EFD group supports the new "EU Diplomatic Service"
Lorenzo Fontana is a new MEP. He represents Lega Nord, the controversial racist and xenophobic party that espouses and practices violence sits alongside UKIP in the pro EU membership EFD group, which Nigel Farage co presidents!.
On October 21st 2009, he voiced his support for the EU diplomatic service, saying that:
"The proposal to establish the European diplomatic service is a leap forward..." You can find his speech at http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/...V&detail=3-198
Mr President, ladies and gentlemen, I believe that, given the importance of the subject under discussion, Parliament should have had more time to explain its position to the Council. Instead, the committee process lasted only a few days and we are now holding a debate in Parliament two days after the adoption of the provision within the Committee on Constitutional Affairs.
The proposal to establish the European diplomatic service is a leap forward when compared with what is strictly provided for by the treaties. Furthermore, the European External Action Service, as it is described by the report, appears difficult to integrate with the Member States’ foreign affairs ministries. What will happen to these ministries? Will they dissolve? That seems unlikely.
Moreover, how will the powers of these embassies, with regard to visas, for instance, fit in with the work already carried out by the national embassies? Who will the so-called ambassadors of the European Union be appointed by? By the Commission, as seems likely, or will the Member States be able to appoint their own? Moreover, the idea of calling the future representatives ‘ambassadors’ is provocative, given that the European Constitution, which provided for a European foreign affairs minister, has not been adopted. We cannot pretend that the European Constitution was not rejected by the French and the Dutch.
"is a leap forward when compared to what is strictly provided for in the treaties"
He also said:
This seems to go against everything that UKIP claims to stand for, so why are our MEPs putting up with this?
Perhaps Farage wants a job in the new EU diplomatic service? If that is the case, then on recent performance we can expect the MEPs to back him to the hilt.
"Mr President, I will try to stay within my speaking time. The Lega Nord , the party I represent, voted for the Treaty in the Italian Parliament and I personally was the rapporteur."
