    THE European Union is facing a crunch referendum in Italy which experts have warned could "shock" the troubled bloc to its core.

    The Wall Street Journal has said that the outcome of the October referendum on constitutional reforms is “more important than Brexit”, with the future of pro-Brussels PM Matteo Renzi riding on the result.


    Other international news organisation have suggested that Italy could become the weak link of European growth and the possible centre of a new political shock ready to weaken the EU.


    The Spanish newspaper El Pais called Italy “the new sick patient of Europe that could drag the continent back into crisis”.

    EU is the wet dream of the Jewish globalists


    Did you not see the leaked documents incriminating George Soros? he's financing pro-EU groups, radical feminist group, migrant groups (helping illegals come into Europe) abortion groups. All these things are leading to our destruction of Western civilisation. Plotted by the Jews long ago.
    Oh it's you. Blame the Jews because that's all you're capable of

    Pretty much. Although on a site like this, a bastion of the liberal left, your comment won't be here for long. TSR mods get very pissy about any other opinion that isn't leftist.

    TSR mods are fine with plenty opinions that aren't leftist. You won't get a post taken down for saying abortion should be illegal, or that you believe marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman, or that the free market is great, or that we spend too much on foreign aid, or that immigration has been detrimental in the UK. But, yeah, they might draw the line with people with Auschwitz in their name posting borderline antisemitic crap...

    That's not what I've seen on TSR. Most of the mods have an agenda and they are quick to take down any thing that doesn't sound like it came out of the socialist party manifesto. Baring in mind the current generation have grown up with the liberal agenda since they went to school, that way of thinking is like second nature to them, it's imbedded in them, and most of the TSR mods are millennials. So yeah, biased agenda.
    Sure, this agenda is highly prevalent, but I really don't think TSR is all that draconian. I do sometimes see threads taken down that express controversial views, but generally it is only when they are so controversial that TSR would do well not to allow them up (e.g. Holocaust denial). It doesn't really seem to be about left-wing vs right-wing. There are threads and posts in praise of Donald Trump still up, threads about disagreeing with homosexuality still up, threads criticising Black Lives Matter still up. Generally the posts that get removed are from new members posting deliberately inflammatory stuff.

    I bet the EU fatcats are wishing the nipped the migrant crisis in the bud before it cause all this. There's still time before Europe gets utterly ruined, c'mon Eurocrats, sort the borders out and protect our futures!

    They wouldn't be. The other guy claimed that anything that doesn't fit the leftist narrative is liable to be taken down, which is simply bulls**t

    I refuse to add to the express's viewing figures, but last I heard the referendum was about getting rid of direct elections to the upper chamber and instead having it filled with mayor and councillors. Please explain how this relates to the EU and 'merica.

    They are more important simply because they are a large euro member
