Mr. Bossi, a key partner of Mr. Berlusconi, is among others very negative about immigration. And what is funny, (or indicative of Italian politics) is that his constituency is composed by small business owners in Northern Italy who depend upon immigrants (often illegal to pay them less) to continue producing and exporting.

Mr Bossi divorced his first wife, which is a sin for the catholic church, and lives with a second wife. But he is one of the active supporters of the "family values"....

Recently he stated that Muslims should pray and preach in Italian in the mosques there so that they can be understood by the Italians. Funnily enough, he had nothing to say when the Pope reintroduced the mass in Latin, a language that fewer people in Italy understand as compared with Arabic.

Logics in Italian politics !
