Italy’s far right deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini has accused the European Union of attempting to “swindle” the United Kingdom out of the Brexit people voted for in the landmark 2016 referendum, The Sunday Times reported. “My experience in the European parliament tells me you either impose yourself or they swindle you”, Salvini told the weekly as he urged prime minister Theresa May to take a harder stance in negotiations to sever ties with the trading bloc. May and her ministers are scrambling to forge agreements with each of the EU’s 27 member states after a week which saw her already fragile “Chequers plan” for Brexit knocked back by Brussels chief negotiator Michel Barnier.
