AN EVALUATION OF THE LEGA'S CLAIM My discussion of the arguments deployed by the Lega has highlighted how most of them can be interpreted as partisan constructions. The speciousness of the arguments certainly diminishes their relevance as acceptable justiﬁcations for secession. From a ‘just cause’ perspective, which accepts a ‘remedial right of secession … for groups that have suffered certain kinds of injustices and for which secession is the most appropriate remedy’,92 the Lega's claim cannot carry much weight.
A proposition to abandon the reference to independence in the party's name (the Lega is still ofﬁcially named ‘Lega Nord per l'independenza della Padania’, the ‘Northern League for the independence of Padania’) was withdrawn when it roused violent protests of its rank-and-ﬁle (Giovanna Pajetta, ‘Più poltrone, meno voti: Lega a congresso’, Il Manifesto , 2 March 2002). 50 Oliver Schmidtke, ‘The Populist Challenge to the Italian Nation-State: The Lega Lombarda/Nord’, Regional Politics and Policy 3:3 (1993), 140–62, at p.
4 in 1993). 78 Following Pagliarini's interpretation of data on per capita spending, the Lega can justly claim that several northern regions receive per capita less than average. Its representation of the redistributive policies of the Italian state as being marked by a North–South dichotomy in which all southern regions are favoured and all northern regions disadvantaged, however, can only be regarded as misleading. Social scientists who have analysed the territorial dimension of the redistributive policies of the Italian state conﬁrm this more nuanced picture.
