Italian protest party leader Beppe Grillo said he wanted a "German invasion" of Italy to ensure "honest, competent" politicians, in an interview with Germany's top-selling newspaper Tuesday.
"In our parliaments there are still 30 MPs who have been convicted of serious offences. I'd also like honest, competent and professional people in the right positions," Grillo, 64, told Bild newspaper.
"In this respect, I would be glad about a German invasion of Italy," he quipped.
