    New Italian government plans to curb Sunday shopping - Di Maio

    ROME (Reuters) - The new Italian government will introduce a ban on Sunday shopping in large commercial centres before the end of the year as it seeks to defend family traditions, Deputy Prime Minister Luigi Di Maio said on Sunday.

    So I suppose Italians will shop online on a sunday. A blow to bricks and mortar retailers. These people lack the capacity to think.

    Is it me, or is a large part of Europe suddenly shifting to the right? Italy, Poland, Sweden, and others.

    Too bad you Brits are still mired down in the mucky muck of liberalism. Well like they say, people get the kind of government they deserve.

    The shops should not open on Sunday, okay restaurants, bars etc but not shops, we are not open on Sunday, we are a Roman Catholic nation predominant.

    "A blow to bricks and mortar retailers."

    We are the second most wealthy nation on this Continent, so the Sunday not open does not effect our business.

    Also Switzerland is the first most wealthy nation on this Continent, so the Sunday not open does not effect their business.

    This is America. Everything but Chick-fil-A and hobby lobby are open on Sundays.

    There are still plenty of businesses in small town America that adhere to the closed on Sunday way. That is not necessary a bad thing.

    So you need the fucking government to tell you to stay home with your family?

    If that's the case you shouldn't have a family

    Try wrapping your head around this a little better! Then come back and talk to me! Use some logic on the situation and you will realize that it many times is not the persons decision where they are on sunday! Further more look at some stats. You wil see a large correlation between an uptick of divorce and the disappearing of these laws!
