Hilltop town in Tuscany in revolt over plan to take in 50 refugees

A picturesque hilltop town on the coast of Tuscany, for decades the favourite haunt of Italy’s intelligentsia, is in revolt over a plan to settle 50 refugees within its medieval walls.

Capalbio, which lies a couple of miles from white sand beaches, is known as “the pearl of the Maremma” – a region in southern Tuscany known for its wild coastline, rolling hills and “butteri”, Italian cowboys who farm long-horned cattle.

The refugees are due to arrive next month, part of a nationwide scheme to find accommodation for the tens of thousands who wait months, sometimes years, for their asylum applications to be processed.

    The refugees are all gay and those are pretty high walls.

    What? But but but why won’t the elites take in the refugees? After all they favour a borderless world and cultural understanding

    Here is a plan that would do wonders.
    Resettle ALL new refugees and asylum seekers in the highest income postal codes and within 1/4 mile of the highest elected officials.
    Work from the top down and see how fast this problem goes away.

      You have my vote. Could you imagine one of these shit heels showing up with Turdeau’s daughter for dinner one day.

      Hey “Dad”, pass the potatoes.

    Remarkable how similar the tactics are across Europe and North America. The Soros employees running those governments are trying to inoculate the best places with this trash.

    It might be ironic were it not tragic.
    Abandonment of coastal towns, lowland villas and farms of the Roman period and a retreat to easily-fortified hilltop towns such as Capalbio in Tuscany was a feature of early mediaeval Italy. Why? – because of arab muslim invaders and slave raiders.
