Cat pictures from the Sheriff

Matteo Salvini likes to wear clothes of the police: Shirts in the summer, Jackets in the Winter, the logo is always clearly visible: "Polizia". When he jogs in the evening through Rome, he pulls out a Polo shirt to the police, the photographer he says in advance. But above all, of Italy is wearing Minister of the interior and Deputy Prime Minister from the right-wing Lega officials clothes on his many travels through the country, for the bathroom in the masses when the big one occurs in the people. The Outfit yells: I'll take care of your safety to the borders, to the Nation, trust in me only.

Cheap disguise? Salvini give the Sheriff with a star, writes the left-leaning newspaper "La Repubblica" full of irony. The number makes him incredibly successful.

Tilted balance of power

It is now eight months since then, in Rome, the populists rule, Lega, and Cinque. But actually, only the Sheriff ruled, he moves faster and faster. And if he has to respond to an attack, according to his salvos in the social media of the attack of the little that remains. Also in Italy it takes almost Salvini true, abroad, anyway. Luigi Di Maio, of the "Capo politico" the Five stars? Overwhelmed, pushed away. Although the labour Minister is also Deputy Prime Minister and twice as many people sitting in the Parliament, like the Lega, managed Salvini in only eight months, to tilt the balance of power. In the surveys, the Lega, in the parliamentary elections of 4. In March, only 17 percent of the votes had won, now at 33 percent of voting intentions. The Cinque Stelle, the 33 per cent had achieved at 25 percent – and the trend: rapidly declining.

nothing Happens Surprising, then Salvini will win this year, the European elections, and clearly. Early parliamentary elections were to be held, would be the Lega by far the strongest party in the country. Salvini's rise is a political lesson from these unsettled times, a tactical masterpiece.

This began when he invented before the elections, as a Populist, as a man of the people, would show it to the Establishment: the lobbies, the banks, the European Union. This is a travesty. The Lega, which he heads since the end of 2013, is the oldest party in the country. They ruled Italy with the civil Right of Silvio Berlusconi, as Di Maio was still in primary school. In Lombardy and in Veneto, the economically strongest regions in the country, the governors of the Lega such a good Job that the liberals, in all of the world's exporting entrepreneurs forgive the racist Rotzigkeit. Of due to bad Elite: The Lega has long been part of the Establishment.


The Rest is Propaganda, and Salvini is almost unbeatable. A whole Team takes care of its communication on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, it is hard political slogans, cute pictures of animals switches to a mess in an hour, very often photos of Salvini, the food, everything. Salvini is everywhere all the time, in the flesh or on the net, which is nowadays almost the same.

His second Coup was the fact that he is the great weakness of the Cinque, their political inexperience, this sometimes comical Amateurism, as the ramp is realized, for himself and his Lega. Reminder: the social-democratic Partito Democratico, after the elections once the coalition negotiations with the stars, had then, that You didn't want to be a Junior partner. Salvini thought a corner, on the Numbers, and treated the actual senior partner from the beginning, as would be the Junior. Political professional Salvini, and the apprentice Di Maio: The asymmetry in Power is so obvious, every business, every day, that appears to be almost funny. In the case of the Lega, a strictly structured party with staff for each Post, have fun well delicious.

A newspaper drew this recently, a nice comparison from the football: It was a bit like in the summer, when world-class Teams of Serie A in the training camp in South Tyrol against a "selection of the Dolomites" will compete. In the case of the Cinque point, the rule is that after two parliamentary mandates, and so no one from the management team with Salvini likes to break: if there Were elections, would be gone Di Maio and several of his Ministers in the early of the policy, retired. This prospect makes you vulnerable to blackmail. The Lega looks, instead, left to possible new elections, they could alliieren again with Forza Italia and Fratelli d’Italia, if the constellation with the stars zerbräche.

Also Salvini's third Intuition proves to be aptly named: Immigration, his favourite topic, always works. If it is not running with other topics as well, such as the recent budget dispute with Brussels, it switches quickly to the tried-and-tested: "Stop invasione", "Closed ports", "First the Italians" – all with the Hashtag. Salvini dictated the political Agenda, with provocative ease, sometimes even out of the holiday. A few days ago, when the mayor against the new asylum law rebelled, he was just in Bormio in a ski Lodge. He held the phone in front of the head and began a long monologue, broadcast live on Facebook. Behind him stood his daughter, sticking her head into the picture.

curse of the highly acclaimed

the Sheriff ruled. This is also the reason why so easy, because the Opposition, the left and the right, still paralyzed by the defeat in the election. The social Democrats are looking for a new leadership and a new provision, part of a feud but meanwhile, dear to each other, as they stood up to Salvini. So far, at least For the coming Saturday mass demonstrations against the budget are planned – "on all the squares of Italy", as it says in the announcement. Forza Italia is waiting in turn to the fact that Berlusconi is determined to finally have a successor, plunges into the deep: 8 percent of Italians say they would choose the former largest party. Salvini has also eat the civil rights.

Politically, he is just without competition. L’uomo forte, the strong man. He often says: "With the Opposition we have, I will rule for thirty years." His opponents can only hope that soon the curse of the hubris catches up, like the other rapid increase, and are highly acclaimed in front of him, happened, least, Matteo Renzi. That he Disguise it so exaggerates with the Slogans, the Ego, the. He annoyed the Italians, maybe even right on the nerves. But it is not so far.
