El líder del '5 Star Movement' (5SM) d'Itàlia, polític inconformista i antic humorista de peu, Beppe Grillo estudia la possibilitat que el seu partit abandoni el grup Europa de la Llibertat i la Democràcia Directa (EFDD), liderat per Nigel Farage, i s'incorpori. l'Aliança de Liberals i Demòcrates per Europa (ALDE), liderada per Guy Verhofstadt
, escriu Catalina Feore.

Grillo’s actions bring to mind the Groucho Marx quote: “Those are my principles, and if you don’t like them…well, I have others.” But it would also be fair to say that the Five Star Movement was always an awkward fit with UKIP and other EFDD fellow travellers. While Five Star is anti-euro, it is not calling for Italy to leave the EU. On the other hand, moving from one of the most Eurosceptic groups and joining one of the most Europhile ones is quite a leap.

Commenting on the possibility of the Beppe Grillo’s 5 Star movement joining the ALDE Group in the European Parliament, Patrizia Toia, head of the Italian delegation to the S&D Group, said: “The manoeuvre currently ongoing between the 5 Star Movement and ALDE to build an alliance in the European Parliament is not an edifying sight. Beppe Grillo, after forging an alliance with Nigel Farage, now wants to move from the Eurosceptics to the Federalists, forcing voters to the humiliating ritual of a fake online election that only serves to affirm the arbitrary choices of their “leader”.

“Per la seva banda, Guy Verhofstadt, candidat a la presidència del Parlament Europeu, negociador del Brexit i enemic número u de l'euroescèptic Farage, ara no exclou una aliança amb el Moviment 5 Estrelles, que va ser rebutjada per raó de decència política. grups com els Verds”.

EFDD: Avall, però no del tot fora

In order to form a political group in the European Parliament and acquire benefits, both monetary and procedural, MEPs have to put together a coalition that includes a minimum of 25 MEPs, elected from at least one quarter (currently seven) of the EU’s Member States. The EFDD current has 44 MEPs, from eight countries. A 5SM departure would mean that the EFDD would be left with 27 Eurodiputats (NB. Aquest article havia llegit anteriorment 17 eurodiputats, va ser un error, 17 és el nombre de diputats 5SM) de set països. No és un cop fatal, però molt proper.

L'EFDD és una tripulació variada. Inclou una descontentada eurodiputada del Front Nacional francès, Joëlle Bergeron, an Alternative für Deutschland MEP Beatrix von Storch (CORRECTION: originally wrote ‘only’ MEP from Alternative für Deutschland, this is incorrect, Janice Atkinson MEP (ENF) informs us that Marcus Pretzell is also an Alternative für Deutschland MEP, but belongs to the Europe of Nations and Freedom group – yes, confusing! – I have asked for an explanation) and a Polish Korwin MEP, Robert Jarosław Iwaszkiewicz. The eponymous leader of the Korwin party, Janusz Korwin-Mikke, is not in the group and is a controversial character who has been fined by the parliament for using racist language.
