Farage in talks with Grillo over EU grouping

Breitbart London is reporting that Nigel Farage is looking to do a deal with Beppe Grillo, the leader of the Italian anti-establishment Five Star Movement to form a group in the EU Parliament.

Under EU rules, groups have to have at least 25 members from parties in 7 different countries to be able to access funding and places on committees.

Grillo and Farage are both well known for their scathing attacks on traitorous politicians and admire each others' work. A deal with Grillo could help attract a much wider range of prospective partners and scupper David Cameron's attempts to woo UKIP's current partners away from the eurosceptic EFD group and into the Conservatives' europhile ECR group.
