“We need a mass cleansing..."

Not great, obviously. Just very disturbing. At school, we didn't spend that much time on the 1930s, but this sounds scarily reminiscent.
Footage has re-emerged of Italy’s new interior minister calling for a “mass cleansing” of migrants from “entire parts” of the country.

Matteo Salvini’s comments are being shared on social media after he announced a “census” of the country’s Roma community, setting the stage for deportations of the ethnic group.

And there was I thinking the heading meant that we had got too dirty for our own good :roll:

Such statements from prominent politicians are like chucking a burning match into an explosives store. As the fate of Yugoslavia demonstrated, apparently civilised countries can fall apart very quickly if the wrong buttons are pressed.
