Romanian near-fascists to Alessandra Mussolini: We can be rude about our gypsies, but you mustn't.

A tale from Der Spiegel, which in the words of an SNP MEP, 'warms the heart':

The less than loveable Identity, Tradition, Sovereignty ragbag group in Brussels has had quite the falling out over recent events in Italy, "the murder of an Italian woman...which police suspect was perpetrated by a Romanian immigrant from the Roma community".

Alessandra Mussolini commented "Breaking the law became a way of life for Romanians", and the Partidul România Mare or Greater Romania Party does not like that interpretation at all: "The unconsciousness of this lady who makes easily generalizations, leaving us to understand that all the Romanians are living like delinquents and are making dreadful crimes -- remind us of her grandfather, the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini". And this comes from Corneliu Vadim Tudor (no relation) the non-MEP leader of the GRP. The GRP wants La Mussolini expelled from ITS.

Righty-ho. The GRP has designs on Moldova, the Vojvodina, bit of Ukraine and other places where Romanians are to be found other than Romania itself, and its publications "include articles that denied the Holocaust in Romania and took deliberately antagonistic positions toward Romanian Roma, ethnic Hungarians, and other minority groups". So, a nice bunch all round.

The ideological ancestors of both made common cause in the Axis, of course.
