Eyeties get land for kids promise from government
ITALIANS have been ordered to get shagging by their government and will be offered a chunk of free land if they have a third kid.
Despite frequently boasting about what magnificent and virile lovers they are, Italian men are shunning their duties in the bedroom – preferring to shop for shoes and watch football.
Now parents who have a third child between 2019 and 2021 will get a piece of farmland, the Italian government has said, in a policy it hopes will solve two problems at once.
The plan, cooked up by the far- right League and included in the draft budget for next year, is a bid to reverse the country’s falling birth rate.
Italy has the lowest birth rate in Europe. Last year some 464,000 births were registered, a record low, leaving the country with a significantly older population and a demographic time bomb.
Agriculture Minister Gian Marco Centinaio said: “Something is needed to turn the trend around. That’s why the ministry wants to contribute, favouring rural areas.
One Eyetie babbled: “Mamma Mia!”
