ANTI-BRUSSELS politicians thundered into the lead in Italy’s polls today as the country’s main left-wing party faces an uncertain future without its talisman Matteo Renzi.

The eurosceptic Five Star Movement (M5S) edged ahead of the socialist Democratic Party (PD) in one of the latest surveys released since the former prime minister was forced to quit following his referendum defeat.

In a result which will send shockwaves through Brussels the anti-establishment party scored between 29 per cent and 31 per cent of the vote in three bombshell polls released today.

And the surveys also provide an indication of how fragile the PD’s support base is, with the majority of left-wing voters saying they would rather back a new party set up by Mr Renzi.

When combined with the projected vote share for the far-right Legia Nord (LN), which would become the country’s third biggest party, the two eurosceptic movements are expected to hoover up close to 45 per cent of the electorate at the next Italian election.

On top of that Forza Italia, the centre-right party led by former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, has also taken an increasingly anti-EU tone this year which has seen its poll rating rebound to around 14 per cent.

The three polls, released simultaneously, will provide further headaches for a Brussels elite desperately trying to get to grips with the populist revolution sweeping the continent.
