Salvini is getting ready for a “serious step” which is “leaving the Eurozone”, while Macron’s plan has “collapsed” due to a “colossal mistake”; and Europe is “turning towards fascism.” This is what’s going on in the Old World in the view of former Member of the Hellenic Parliament Yannis Varoufakis.
Yannis Varoufakis has shared with Sputnik his rather gloomy vision of Europe, noting that it’s “moving towards fascism.” As for Greece, Varoufakis believes that the country is now at the “fourth memorandum” stage, with “all the worst things” and the government is limited to distributing “pocket money”.
Speaking of the wage increases in France and Spain, Varoufakis notes that “we’re locking the stable door after the horse has bolted.” He also argues that the confrontation between Rome and Brussels makes no sense.
“By blackmailing Salvini with driving him out of the eurozone, they are actually threatening him with his own dreams,” he told Sputnik.
Sputnik: How would you assess the current situation in Europe with these Yellow Vests protests on the one hand and wage increases in Spain and France on the other?
Yannis Varoufakis: I would say this is a sign that any excuse for reforming the eurozone architecture has collapsed. In fact, Macron’s retreat before the Yellow Vests is akin to announcing the completion of the project. This is the end of Macron.
