May Will Offer Her Brexit Dire Deal For A 4th Vote because She Has No Plan B

After the Easter recess, the UK Parliament is back at work today and Brexit-related news is back in the headlines. Nothing has changed since May struck an agreement with the EU for a six-month extension of Article 50, which the EU made conditional on The Prime Minister getting her Brexit-In-Name-Only treaty accepted by British lawmakers before elections to the European Parliament in May.

Talks with tho opposition Labour Party, aimed at finding an alternative to Mrs May’s Brexit deal remain deadlocked with Labour’s insistence on a second referendum the biggest obstacle. Though the Tory and Labour representatives resumed talks on Tuesday, widely cirulated rumours suggest the talks could fall apart in the coming days.

Whatever happens with the talks is of little irrelevance because the EU has been clear that the withdrawal agreement (suspected to have ben drafted by Angela Merkel because of its one sidedness,) is the only deal it will accept. That deal has already been thrown out three times by The British House of Commons. Though the margin of defeat has shrunk in each successive vote it is still substantial. So long as the Irish Backstop, the section which would keep Norther Ireland tied to the EU while mainland Britain left, remains the immovable object blocking the deal’s progress it’s unlikely that May will be able to win over enough Brexiteers to push the deal through.

MayTheresa May looks as if she is about to throw up after hearing the latest Brexit – Picture: Zero Hedge

With few viable alternatives apart from another extension and another and another, the Financial Times reported on Tuesday, surprising absolutely no one, that May, now if not recognised as the most stupid, arrogant, stupid politician ever, surely a contender, is preparing to bring the virtually unaltered withdrawal agreement back for a fourth vote.

Just like the third vote, May will need to embrace some procedural maneuvers to satisfy Speaker Bercow’s condition that the deal must be “substantially different” than prior votes if May wants to bring it back. This time, the withdrawal agreement will come packaged in a more far-reaching withdrawal agreement bill.

And a vote could come as soon as next week.

Downing Street sources suggest a fourth vote on May’s bill could be the last chance to avoid Britain’s participating in the upcoming elections to the EU Parliament, something May had desperately sought to avoid and which would result in the anihilation of the Conservative Party bloc in the European Parliament.

If , as is probable,the bill is defeated again May would be prohibited from bringing it back for another vote until a new session of parliament begins in November.  We guess May, ever a fanatical supporter of the EU and globalism, would stubbornly try to find some kind of procedural loophole to keep bringing her deal back and keep Britain in the EU until opposition evaporates from sher fatigue.

Even if it should eventually manage to pass the Commons, there are still procedural hurdles to negotiate before Brexit could be officially delivered. The Daily Telegraph reports:

The treaty the bill is intended to implement includes provisions such as the UK’s £39bn exit payment to the EU, protection of citizens’ rights, a transition period and the so-called backstop to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland. If the legislation is rejected, as currently seems likely, the government could not reintroduce it again in this session of parliament.

“It would be quite a big thing,” admitted one ally of Mrs May. In those circumstances the bill could only be brought back if the current parliamentary session was ended.

Approval for the legislation would kick off a tortuous passage through parliament during which the bill could be amended. Attempts to add a customs union or a second referendum would be expected. Even if the bill did eventually become law, Downing Street said there would still have to be a separate “meaningful vote” on Mrs May’s deal under the terms of 2018 Brexit legislation. However, that would be expected to be a formality if MPs have already approved the bill to put the draft treaty into effect.

Whatever happens, May’s deal, along with May herself, may soon become a footnote in history. That’s because, as the Telegraph reported,  Sir Graham Brady, the leader of the influential 1922 Committee of Conservative members with no official government position, is planning to confront the boss on Tuesday and demand that she sets a date for her resignation or the party’s members will change the leadership rules to allow her to be ousted (after surviving a no confidence vote late last year, May is immune from further challenges for a year under the current rules).

Other prominent Conservatives, including Nigel Evans,  member for Ribble Valley (where I live though I didn’t vote for him,) have called on May to resign immediately.

Readers know this blog regards Theresa May as a creature on the same level as the bacteria and algae that pass their whole existence in sewers, so it will be no surprise to see us bringing you a link to an article in The Slog that suggests Mays’ betrayal of Brexit has been carefully planned to ensure we could nerver leave the EU:

HOW MAY WAS INSTALLED, HOW SHE HID DEFENCE TIES TO THE EU, HOW THE MEDIA LIED ABOUT THE OCTOBER  BREXTENSION

In a triple-header of revelations today, The Slog assembles the evidence to condemn the Prime Minister as an anti-democratic, unconstitutional and enthusiastic supporter of Superstate hegemony and coordinated European defence. We trace her suspicious rise to power, the defence agreements signed during 2018 that nobody knew about, and how the media have been cowed into censoring the real nature of the October 31st Article 50 extension agreement.

PM cancels Easter break for team negotiating with Labour in a bid to STOP Farage

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who s>uccessfully lobbied for a referendum on Britain’s future in the EU and then led the Leave campaign to a surprising (but only to the political establishment and mainstream media,) victory launched his new Brexit Party this week to get MEPs elected in May now it appears certain that Mrs May’s desperate efforts to overturn the result of the democratic vote have partially succeeded by gaining a delay in the date we actually leave. However, Mrs May is even more desperate to avoid Mr Farage and his party gaining a majority of UK seats in the European Parliament and to do that she has ordered her negotiators work through Easter in a bid to cobble together a dodgy deal with Jeremy Corbyn’s far left Labour Party to get her thrice rejected ‘brexit-in-name-only” deal accepted by the House of Commons before the new 22 May deadline.

Mrs May cannot do that without Labour’s support and has infuriated her own party by betraying manifesto pledges to offer the left wing extremists of Labour sweetners that will win their support. Funny thing about the name May, it rhymes with betray.

A Downing Street source told The Sunday Mirror: “These talks have been constructive and serious and both sides want to see further progress over the Easter recess. If we can keep up the pace of negotiations, we can get a deal over the line and avoid having European elections.”

Mr Farage is dead set on winning more seats than May and Corbyn’s parties in the European Parliament election. Writing in the Sunday Express today he said: “As time has gone on, this arrogant elite has stuck two fingers up at their own manifestos, lied to the electorate, and done everything possible to thwart the result.

“They have concocted and confected all sorts of bogus arguments to try to kill Brexit. The sheer scale of their betrayal of the country is difficult to grasp.”

He has called upon people to stop supporting the establishment if they want to see the 2016 referendum result to go through.

He continued: “In light of this, the best option open to Brexiteers is to punish both of the Establishment parties and back The Brexit Party. The Conservatives and Labour have been as bad as each o.ther when it comes to choking off Brexit. In their own ways, both have connived to let down the upstanding citizens of Britain who voted to Leave in 2016“

Mr Farage has urged people to support his party in the upcoming election so that Brexit can be delivered.

Spain’s Election Problem: Muslim Population Grew By 20% in 4 years As Spanish Nationals Are Marginalised

Pablo Iglesias, PODEMOS party leader

Catalonia has the fastest growing Muslim population in Spain – and more Islamic centres than any other region in the country. In spite of a strong separatist movement, the left has total hegemony in regional politics and the patriotic forces are being marginalised by the socialists, their elected politicians are excluded from key positions and known supporters are being fired from jobs and having trouble getting hired elsewhere, Defend Europa reports.

From 2011 to 2015, the number of Muslims in Catalonia has grown by 19.5%. That translates to 83,000 more people than 4 years ago. Not only that, the risk of terrorist attack has tripled in just this year (under the socialist government, almost 30,000 more Muslims, mostly uneducated, illiterate single males, have arrived). From 2011 to this year, the number of immigrants has doubled. They constitute more than one million people in a population of only 7 million.

This “wonderful” multiculturalism, the creation of the EU and being promoted by the socialist government in Madrid exploded in the Barcelona terrorist attacks of 2017. After seeing this, what was the reaction of the Catalan politicians? Well no, with the Catalan separatists hamstrung as the duopoly parties close ranks against them, its graft and corruption as usual in Spanish politics.

Campaigning for Spain’s general election, brought about when the minority socialist government, which gained power in a bloodless coup only last year, lost a confidence vote in the national Assembly. Campaingning for this election, to be held on April 28, begins on Friday this week and accusations of political espionage described as the country’s ‘Watergate’, external meddling and breaches of electoral law are flying in all directions.

Last month Spain’s judiciary launched a probe into an alleged conspiracy by secret police and the former conservative government led by Mariano Rajoy to smear the reputation of the left-wing Podemos party founded in 2014.

On April 1 Spain’s Socialist administration claimed to have deactivated the so-called “patriotic brigade” of senior police officers. “The sewers no longer exist,” said Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska.
But Podemos’s leader Pablo Iglesias has since claimed the dirty tricks campaign against his party did not end when the more ideologically-aligned Socialist Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez came to power last June.

Last weekend Mr Sánchez’s deputy press officer, Alberto Pozas, was summoned by a judge in connection with the theft of data from a mobile phone belonging to Mr Iglesias’s former aide. The phone was stolen in November 2015, weeks before the first general election in which Podemos took part, when Mr Pozas was editor of a now-defunct sensationalist news weekly called Interviú.

Investigators found data from the mobile phone among the files of former police officer José Manuel Villarejo, jailed since 2017 while a court probes his role as alleged leading member of the “patriotic brigade”.

Among a series of accusations against Mr Villarejo, the former police commissioner is believed to have staged a phony police probe into alleged financing for Podemos from the Iranian and Venezuelan governments.

And while all this is distracting voters, the invasion of Spain by illegal immigrants from Africa goes on, as in so many other nations in Europe the ruling elite are oblivious to the concerns of their countrymen and women who are not so privileged, and are happy to replace the population with uneducated, unaware cheap labour.

And so the smears and corruption, bribery, entrapment and general malfeasance will go on until election day and a vote, which in common with the last three general elections in Spain is likely to throw up an inconclusive result. Did you really think the UK is the only European nation where democracy is in crisis?

Farage Says New Brexit Party Will Spark “A Political Revolution” And Terrify The Tories

the daily stirrer
Nigel Farage (Picture: http://www.dailymail.co.uk )

Nigel Farage, who led the successful Brexit campaign, warned backsliding elitist politicians on Tuesday that his brexit Party would spark a political “revolution” – a cliched line but appropriate given the mood of the country – and strike fear into the hearts of ineffectual Tories who have so far failed to deliver on the promise of the Brexit referendum if the UK is forced to contest EU Parliament elections as part of Prime Minister Theresa May’s, the Sun newspaper reports.

In an interview with the Sun, Farage confirmed the official launch of the Brexit Party would happen during an event in Coventry on Friday. He promised the new party would contest every region in the May 23 European Parliamentary elections, which he is sure will happen if the UK is granted another Article 50 extension. He spoke as Theresa May (it rhymes with betray,) was in Brussels begging for more time to get her Brexit-in-name-only deal throgh parliament after it has already failed three times. Any extension the EU offers is likely to be laden with more unacceptable terms and conditions.

The Brexit party, Farage said, would dedicate itself to leading a fighting back against “the betrayal of democracy” by May and the Conservative Party she leads and the opposition Labour and Liberal Democrat prties. Though a twitter account for the Brexit Party, Farage added that if you supported Brexit, “both parties have failed you.”

Farage says that beyond resuing Brexit from Remainers of both the Conservative and Labour Parties who have been determined to overturn the referendum result, the goal of the Brexit Party is to upend the British two-party system in its current form. His announcement followed remarks from Tory Brexiteer MP Anne Morris, who said she might vote for the Brexit Party if European elections happen.

Europe’s Nationalists Unite Behind Salvini Ahead Of EU Elections

With the EU elections due in May this year expected to deliver another body blow to the dream of a Federal European superstate, Europe’s more conservative nationalist  parties have today announced an alliance that is aiming to become the strongest group in the European Parliament, with a view to forcing to radical reform on the EU bureaucracy in Brussels, which dictates policy on security, migration, family and the environment, according to Euro News.

 

From left, Olli Kotro, leader of The Finns Party, Jörg Meuthen, leader of Alternative For Germany party, Matteo Salvini, Italian deputy-Premier and leader of the League party, and Anders Vistisen, leader of the Danish People’s Party

“The news is that we are broadening the community, the family. We are working for a new European dream today. For many Europeans, the EU (European Union) is a nightmare,” Italian Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini told reporters following a meeting of Europe’s nationalist party leaders in Milan. Salvini is spearheading the alliance, called “Towards a Europe of Common Sense,” which he says he hopes will “win and change Europe.”

Salvini was joined Monday by the far-right Alternative for Germany’s co-leader Joerg Meuthen, Olli Kotro of the euroskeptic populist party The Finns, and Anders Vistisen of the right-wing, populist Danish People’s Party. Those parties now come from other parliamentary groups, the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) and the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD). –AP

The alliance hopes to form a majority bloc following the May 23-26 elections – “the most numerous, important, determined and forward-looking group,” according to Salvini.

“We are not aiming to lose or just participate. Our goal is to win and change the rules of Europe.

Europe’s right-wing populist parties are currently divided into three groups: The Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF) group — which includes Italy’s the League, France’s National Rally, Austria’s Freedom Party and the Netherlands’ Party for Freedom — the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), which groups the Danish People’s Party and the Finns Party among others, and the Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy (EFDD), which has the Alternative for Germany (AfD) and the UK’s Brexit Party . –Euro News

The group’s top priorities are a halt to all illegal immigration, restore political sovereignty to EU nations, protect “European culture,” and enforce stronger European border controls. They see the main threat to Europe as Islamic extremism.

“As interior minister for 10 months, the No. 1 risk in Italy and Europe is Islamic extremism, Islamic fanaticism, Islamic terrorism,” said Salvini. “There are extreme-right and extreme-left minorities in Italy and in Europe, (but) they fortunately are controlled and of limited numbers.”

Salvini rejected the notion that the groups in his alliance are filled with political extremists bent on totalitarian rule. The far – right extremists narrative is of course purely left wing scaremongering by people who describe any suggestion that immigration should be controlled as racist and fascistic.

“Today at this table there are no nostalgic extremists,” Salvini said, adding: “The only nostalgics are in power in Brussels. Today, we look ahead with a clear memory of what happened in the past, but the tired debate of right, left, fascist, communist, is not what makes us passionate.”

Political experts say the May 23-26 European Parliament vote could prove to be a tipping point in post-war European politics, if traditional political powerhouses lose support and extremist, populist parties gain more clout.

The vote, which involves 705 seats this year, is run as national ballots in each of the bloc’s states. National political parties with common ideology then unite in EU-wide groups, like the center-right EPP, the center-left S&D Socialists or the liberal, pro-business ALDE.

The new euroskeptic alliance, launched under the banner “Toward a Europe of common sense,” expands on the parliament’s four-year-old Europe of Nations and Freedom Group (ENF), which already includes France’s far-right National Rally, Austria’s Freedom Party and the Netherland’s Party for Freedom. –AP

The alliance, which is holding a rally on May 18 in Milan’s central Piazza Duomo, says their invitation is open to all like-minded parties who wish to join the faction. If they win a majority in the EU elections, the group would cancel for good the process of inviting Turkey to become a member of the European Union – a process which has been stalled for years. Commenting on this, Salvini said Turkey is nothing to do with Europe, apart from a small enclave around Istanbul, Turkey is on the Asian continental land mass and is different religiously and culturally from anywhere in Europe.

Stupid Remainer Snobs

In the comment thread on a crisis in the Conservative Party because of Theresa May’s inept handling of the Brexit process I came across this exchange of comments, which I think illustrates perfectly why supporters of Britain’s annexation by The Fourth Reich have behaved so obnoxiously towards those of us who informed ourselves of how the EU works , its long and short term policies and its contempt for democracy shown in responses to previous referendums in member states that have not gone te way the EU demanded. Read the original article HERE
Then look at the articulate and well thought out comment by Sally Bettis and the nasty, mean spirited response from a Remain supporter. 
Sally Bettis

Most of the remainer posts on here are positively dripping with the superior, high minded condescension the referendum winners have largely come to expect from hugely embittered referendum losers unable to stomach democracy unless it agrees with their point of view.

They perfectly exemplify the arrogance of the liberal left establishment and EU Bureaucrat elite – the EU has been failing it’s citizens for decades, all the way back to the hugely misconceived project of monetary union. It’s citizens have legitimate reasons to think the EU has been failing, not just on immigration and monetary union, but on its security policy and its policy towards radical islam to.

Look at the situation in Germany today where Merkel tells us that multiculturalism is going well and we just need to change our attitudes – but look at what the consequences have already been of throwing open the gates and embarking on a process of integration which seems to have almost no chance of success. Look at how unsuccessful Northern Europe was in admitting asylum seekers in the 1990’s on a much smaller scale. The unemployment differential between the native born and foreign born in Northern Europe was enormous even before the latest wave of migrations.

Monetary union has been a disaster for all the reasons most US economists and many of us said it would be (but not most UK economists/’experts’, who said it would be a disaster if we did’t join!).

European Security policy with respect to North Africa and the Middle East has been disaster too.

On the migration issue and radical islam issues the EU leadership has got it fundamentally wrong.

The EU elite’s performance over the last two decades has entirely justified the revolt of provincial UK – that was what we saw with Brexit and if the liberal establishment had spent a little time in provincial communities they would have heard this. Provincial UK said you’re arguing that this is all about GDP – it is not, it is about who governs us being democratically elected and being able to make our own laws and control our own borders.

In the midst of all this there has been an endless post mortem on what Cameron got wrong. What he got wrong was not to call the referendum, but when the EU leadership made a totally pathetic, risible offer to him which essentially meant nothing in terms of immigration control; he should have said “sorry that’s not good enough, I’m going to back Brexit” that was the great mistake of his political career and cost him another 10 years in Downing Street.

I often get the same kind of responses from Remainers to my reasoned arguments in favour of leaving the EU because … well sombody who supported ‘Leave’ could not possibly be capable of stringing a few words together could they? 🙂
All of which serves to harden my conviction that leaving the EU is the only sane course of action. BTW great comment.
