Italians are wanting to leave the EU as a new poll has found that 40% of the country wants to leave Brussels over their handling of the coronavirus crisis.

The poll also says that 7.3% of Italians want to scrap the Euro and go back to the Lira whilst 40% support leaving the EU.

41.7% support remaining, according to a poll undertaken by Bidmedia, who asked the nation do “you agree to leave the euro and the EU?”

Last month in another poll 88% of Italians feel let down by their EU allies, and the polls are a strong warning to Brussels over the fragility of the bloc.

In a shock poll Italians have described China as a friend despite coronavirus origination from Wuhan and infecting the world, and half said Germany in now an enemy.

Tensions have risen even further after it emerged that Hungary was given €5.6bn from the EU commission, whilst Italy received €2.3bn.

Hungary has just a sixth of the population and only 213 deaths, compared with Italy having a devastating 24,114.

Hungary has a population of 9.7m compared to Italy having over 60m. Hungary has 2,098 coronavirus cases, compared to Italy having more than 181,000 cases.

German Christian Democratic Union leader, Friedrich Merz hit out against Italy’s Eurobonds demands, on Sunday.

The leading politician has suggested “the EU can fall apart because of this,” as Italy have previously warned they could leave Brussels.

Merz is strongly thought to be the next successor to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Finding himself in a backlash, Merz made serious allegations that the Italian Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte is using the coronavirus crisis for his own purposes.

He accused Conte of not wanting any aid from the EU.
