  • The European Commission document, cited by the Italian tabloid, shows that the guidelines were set up “to reflect diversity” and to combat “stereotypes deeply rooted in individual and group behaviour.”

– Mary, mother. Jean Father. Long live Christmas. I hope that no one in Europe will be offended … – said Matteo Salvini, head of the Right-wing League and former deputy prime minister, adding that the actions of the European Commission were “crazy”.

Giorgia Meloni, leader of the Fratelli d’Italia (Italian Brotherhood), assessed that “in the name of a blind ideology, the culture of nations (European) is being suppressed. Our history and our identity should not be erased, but to be respected.”

Helena Daly issued a statement, Tuesday, announcing the withdrawal of the guidelines. However, she added that she is already working on their new version.
