Anger as Italian MP praises Norway gunman
4 August 2011
Anders Breivik, the far-right extremist who confessed to the killings of 77 people in Norway two weeks ago, has found ideological support in what some may consider an unlikely place: the halls of the Italian parliament.
Borghezio’s remarks, and those of other right-wing Italian politicians, seem to indicate that mainstream political discourse in the country is moving further rightwards on the political spectrum.
The Northern League in the present European parliament is in the same coalition, the EFD, as the Ukip party in Britain. After this month’s European elections, they intend to have a coalition with extreme right parties like the National Front in France and Geert Wilders‘ PVV party in the Netherlands.
Borghezio is a good friend of Geert Wilders.
Borghezio was expelled from the EFD group in the European parliament at the request of Ukip leader Farage. However, Borghezio’s party, the Northern League which did not expel him but defended him, then stayed in the EFD.
There used to be another extreme right organisation also called the Northern League during the late twentieth century in Britain and other countries.

Two rival candidates in the looming European parliament votes are to set aside their differences this evening at a Glasgow event challenging the resurgence of fascist parties across the continent.
Organiser Hope Not Hate Scotland said the meeting was “especially topical” given Ukip’s recent attempts to make inroads into Scotland.
Hope Not Hate’s Rab O’Donnell said it was crucial to cast a vote against racist right-wing organisations.
With voter turnout historically as low as 34 per cent, it was easy for such groups to seize power with a small but hardcore base of supporters.
Meanwhile, Ukip’s 13 English MEPs have sought to bolster their influence in Brussels with the far-right alliance Europe of Freedom and Democracy, whose Italian co-president Francesco Speroni described mass murderer Anders Breivik as acting “in defence of western civilisation.”
“Whatever way the independence referendum goes, it’s still going to be those MEPs sitting in the European Parliament,” Mr O’Donnell said.
“If Ukip increases its seats in the European parliament it will see the same far-right shift that is happening in Westminster.”
The free event, part of the Friends of May Day calendar, is from 7pm in Partick Burgh Halls, Glasgow.
