PRESSURE was today mounting for a new election in Italy after a “people’s revolution” forced Italy’s pro-Brussels Prime Minister to quit.

In a stunning setback Matteo Renzi resigned after he was crushed in a referendum to change the country’s constitution to hand him more power by 60 per cent to 40 per cent in an unusually high turnout of 70 per cent.

The referendum, which would have led to far reaching political changes, was seen by many voters as a vote on their confidence in Mr Renzi and his relationship with the EU.

Former Ukip leader Nigel Farage declared it as the latest “people’s revolution” to rock the EU.

He said: “This is a hammer blow to the euro and the pro-EU establishment who have given the Italian people more poverty, unemployment and less security because of mass immigration.”

The humiliated outgoing Italian Prime Minister declared: “My experience of government finishes here.”
