TODAY’S FACTORS AND EVENTS
Draghi’s comments are extremely prescient given that Brexit is now just a month from happening. Furthermore, he delivered the speech in a country where eurosceptic tensions have been rising recently. This is reflected in the two anti-establishment parties currently sharing power in a coalition government.
There have also been significant wins for the far-right in regional elections. This is raising concerns about the upcoming European Parliament elections this year and the potential for the far right to gain further political standing.
