FT | Beppe Grillo bids farewell to Farage parliamentary alliance

Beppe Grillo, the comedian leader of Italy's populist Five Star Movement (M5S), has bid farewell to a parliamentary alliance with Britain's Ukip, after its members voted to leave the Eurosceptic anti-establishment grouping in the EU parliament.

[...] M5S is instead seeking membership of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe led by former Belgian prime minister and federalist Guy Verhofstadt. Just under 80 per cent (78.5 per cent) of the populist party's members voted to join the liberal group.

You can not make this stuff up.

You might find me At The Edge Of Time.
