And They Call Brexit A Farce? EU Chaos As Leaders Fail To Agree Choices For Top Jobs …

 


The Council of Europe – posing for pictures was about the only thing they could agree to do yesterday. (Picture via Politicalite)

The Council Of Europe, which consists of the political leaders of all EU member states (including the UK as Britain is still a member,) gathered for a summit meeting on Thursday to decide which candidates should be appointed to fill several top jobs when European Commission president Jean – Claude Juncker and several other senior figures step down at the end of their terms of office.  They were locked in debate for the whole day and late into the night but were unable to reach agreement on who will fill even one of the positions within the EU.

The current President of the EU Council and one of the people who will retire later this year, Donald Tusk, a former Prime Minister of Poland, said he will organise another summit on the 30th of June to readdress the matter. Tusk, who has been touted as a possible presidential candidate in Poland for the centre-right and pro-EU Civic Platform, is one of the politicians still pushing for political integration of member states, a position which has been shown by the rise of nationalism both in his own country and throughout the EU to be as popular as a plague of boils with EU citizens .

Choosing a replacement for Commission President Juncker was always going to be difficult as the position has previously gone to the candidate favoured by the German government but growing resentment among other member states of the way Germany has manipulated EU policy to its own benefit, added to the huge influx of Eurosceptic European Parliament members following the success of both left and right leaning nationalist movements in the EU election last month. All previous elections have led to the centre – right Christian Democrats of the European People’s Party (EPP) and the centre – left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) groups dominating the assembly. This grand coalition of establishment parties previously divided the leadership positions based on how the two groups performed in the EU elections.

In this year’s elections voters were more polarised in their voting intentions, with a big surge in support for the Greens, the far left, and for nationalist parties.  For many reasons, including the immigration crisis, economic stagnation, an EU expansionist agenda and the increasing awareness that the EU elite is completely out of touch with the problems that beset ordinary people in EU member states, the mood has swung against the consensus politics of the traditional parties. And then there are the minor local difficulties of Brexit and Italy’s launch of a parallel currency which must lead to it leaving the Eurozone. All of this severely weakens the long standing hegemony of the leading German and French parties, all of which have adhered to the neo – liberal consensus.

The failure of the EPP and the S&D to win enough seats for a combined majority in the European Parliament has forced them to look for deals with other groups, most of which seek to overturn the status quo. President Emmanuel Macron, and the new Renew Europe group of centre to centre-right liberal parties that he leads are determined to alter the balance of power in their favour.

Manfred Weber, Chancellor Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union (CDU) nominee is the EPP group choice to be the Commission President. Macron and his allies have refused to support Weber, and have called on Merkel to anoint another figure. Macron has suggested Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier or Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager as alternative option, but reports suggest neither name figured in the actual discussions yesterday.

The inability to agree on who will assume the presidency of the Commission will in turn, result in delays to the appointment of the new head of the European Central Bank (ECB). The first act of the European Parliament on returning from its summer recess  will be to elect its president from candidates suggested by the European Council, but as the current council, which has not progressed as far as considering that question yet, is unlikely to be able to agree on the candidates that position too is in limbo. Furthermore new European Commission President must be chosen prior to the first sitting of the ninth European Parliament, which takes place on the 1st of July.

Taking all of this into account puts into perspective the words spoken by Jean – Claude Juncker a few weeks ago: “Democracy is a fundamental problem.” For a group of elitists trying to merge 500 million people spread across twenty – seven different nations with widely differing cultural and economic needs into a single political entity, one can see that it is.

It was an understanding of the problems inherent in that which prompted many of us in Britain  to vote to leave the EU.

Will Italy’s Mini – Bot Break The Eurozone?

Most people in Britain are sick to the back teeth of Brexit and if you ask anyone in most other European Union member states what is the biggest crisis the EU is likely to face this year they will almost certainly say the crippling effect of Britain leaving the EU without a trade deal. That’s because they get their information via the carefully sculpted narratives presented in mainstream media.

But Britain is not the only EU member state to have had major misgivings for many years about the way the EU is run, the increasingly authoritarian attitude of the EU bureaucracy towards the democratically elected governments of its members or the direction in which the EU is taking, towards the welding of 27 sovereign states into a single politically entity, Federal Europe (or Greater Germany as many cynics like to call it,)

In spite of the news media’s selective reporting however, another crisis is developing that could destroy the single currency and break up the ‘Eurozone’, the member states that adopted the Euro. Unsurprisingly it has not been reported in mainstream media, and so is not on the radar for most people.  At the centre of this budding crisis is not the UK and Brexit, but Italy and its plan for a parallel currency.

Both party leaders in Italy’s ruling coalition, Matteo Salvini (League) and Luigi Di Maio (Five Star Movement) support the idea of a parallel currency as both parties, League from right of centre and Five Star to the left, have blamed most of Italy’s recent economic problms on the country’s being forced into the single currency when in reality its economy failed to meet the standards set by the EU for joining a system which effectively tied the weak economies of southern Europe including Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece and the economies of smaller EU nations to the powerful, manufacturing based economy of Germany.

Needless to say those weak economies have accumulated insupportable debt burdens because as long as they are in the common currency system they cannot devalue their currency or set their own interest rates to reduce the burden of servicing their debt, while solvent but small economies such as those of Belgium and Denmark have struggled because Eurozone membership deprives national governments of financial flexibiltiy.

Italy, with the world’s eighth or ninth largest economy last time I looked, cannot be pushed around as small counties like Greece and Ireland have been pushed around by the EU. The technocrat prime minister, Giuseppe Conte, appointed by the EU after Brussels showed its contempt for democracy by refusing to accept the elected leader of  a Eurosceptic party as political leader of a member state, is not calling the shots and threatened to resign over this issue unless Salvini and Di Maio cave in to Brussels diktat. And neither is in the mood to back down and appease the bureaucrats on this issue.

European Central Bank president and Federalist fanatic, Mario Draghi, proclaimed “Mini-BOTs are either money and then they are illegal, or they are debt and then the stock of debt goes up. I don’t think there is a third possibility.

Possibility Three

A week ago, I noted possibility number three in Italy’s Mini-BOT Trojan Horse Could Blow Up the Eurozone.

Possibility three is a Trojan horse designed as a stepping stone to get Italy out of the Eurozone. The Daily  Telegraph reported recently that Italian Tensions Hit Boiling Point Over Plans for ‘Currency’ to Rival the Euro.

The two parties that make up the fractious governing alliance – the hard-Right League and the Five Star Movement – want to introduce a new type of government bond that would be used to pay off the state’s debts to companies and individuals.

Both the League and Five Star are deeply eurosceptic and have in the past mooted the idea of abandoning the common currency, with Matteo Salvini, the League’s combative leader, last year calling the euro “a mistaken experiment that has damaged jobs and the Italian economy“.

The idea of introducing mini-BOTs has alarmed Europe, with Mario Draghi, the head of the European Central Bank, saying on Thursday that they would either amount to a parallel currency, in which case they would be illegal, or they would simply add to Italy’s towering debt.

He received support a day later from Vincenzo Boccia, the president of Confindustria, Italy’s employers’ federation, who said: “We are on the same wavelength as Draghi about the mini-bots because it would just mean more public debt.”

“There’s a complicated game going on between the League, Five Star, the Quirinale (the residence of the president of Italy, Sergio Mattarella), ministers and the prime minister,” said Prof Giovanni Orsina, a professor of politics at Luiss University in Rome.

A showdown between Rome and Brussels over who rules Italy looks certain, chiefly because, safe in the knowledge that the Italian people are behind them, Salvini and Di Maio are looking for confrontation.

Brussels (by which we mean the EU commission, the unelected bureaucrats who effectively govern the EU,) are determined Italy’s mini – bots scheme must be stopped at all costs. Meanwhile the government in  Italy wants to do it in order to prop up its perpetually wobbling economy and ease the yoke og German fiscal austerity membership of the Single Currency places on it, and therefore, one way or another, the Italian coalition will do it, but Rome would prefer the EU trigger the event and it looks as if the government in the eternal City might have manoeuvred Brussels into granting their wish.

The Italian budget is not even  close to meeting the EU’s rules for Eurozone members and the coalition government have no intention of trying to meet those rules, for them it is a question of who governs Italy, the democratically elected asssembly or the bureaucrats in distant Belgium.The EU has resorted to its usual bullying tactics and threatened Excessive Deficit Procedures against Italy.

The EU has kicked the can down the road almost as far as it can on debt targets but the Italian government is seeking confrontation and will not back own even as far as agreeing to cosmetic changes in their financial plans to give the appearance of trying to comply, therefore the fate of The Euro is sealed. The EU will either have to abandon its rules or fine Italy. If it does not fine Italy other, smaller, Eurozone members will quit as many are unhappy at the way Germany has, since the single currency was floated, manipulated the system to its own advantage.

The fine and resulting spike in Italian bond yields will act as the trigger for Italy to launch its Mini-BOTs.

The longer the EU holds off imposing that fine, the more time Italy has to prepare for the Mini-BOT launch which, because the Italian economy is profoundly in breach of Eurozone rules on it’s deficit, which the Lega / Five Star coalition government plan to increase (sic), is the only way of avoiding a default on Italy’s debt. The EU have already imposed one fine which Salvini has refused to pay. Further penalties have been threatened, but this is pure vindictiveness of the part of The Fourth Reich as some have taken to calling the EU Commission At the moment, France is also in breach of economic rules yet because France’s President Macron is one of the prime movers in the push for political unification, nobody is talking about taking action to punish French fiscal irresponsibility.

The most likely outcome is not a High Noon style showdown, the EU will try to do what it always does when faced with a crisis, by pretending there is no crisis just a minor local misunderstanding, while hoping it goes away. Bureaucrats are no more eager for confrontation than they are over having to make decisions for which they can be held accountable. But this crisis is not going to go away and with others festering in Poland and Spain, sooner or later the Europhiles who have driven the push for political unification (The European Project,) are going to have to face up to the fact that they have failed to sell their dream to the people of the member states, and the EU must reform by devolving power to the sovereign members of its members and return to being a free trade and political cooperation community of nations with broadly similar cultural backgrounds in the Romano – Greek or Celtic – Germanic cultures.

Whatever the short term outcome Italy is set to leave the Eurozone, it is a question of when rather than if. The Mini-BOT is the transition mechanism. Few see it coming.

The Biggest News Story Of The Year Is Being Suppressed

The really big news often does not get reported in mainstream media. Remember that bombshell report from the Organisation for the Prevention of Chemical Weapons in which their inspectors concluded the Douma Poison Gas Attack in Syria was not carried out by Assad forces but bt rebel groups supplied and supported by the USA and NATO? No?
Not surprising really, unless you read “crazy conspiracy theorists” like Caitlin Johnson, David Icke and me you will still be under the impression that President Obama had provided ‘irrefutable evidence’ of Assad’s guilt. That evidence consisted of nothing more substantial than Barack ‘was sure’ it was Assad, and the only reason a person would doubt him was ‘white supremacist racism Yo Blud!”

Such is the state of mainstream news reporting. For those of us who like to dig a bit deeper it is no surprise that the biggest story of the year so far in British news is being completely blanked by print and broadcast news.

It is global news, reported in the USA, Australia, Cyprus (where I get my info on it,) and India. Yet the UK media have thrown a blockade around it.

Why?

Because the story will expose the absolute corruption of our political system and send a shock wave through Europe that will probably tear the EU apart. The Government in the UK know it is inevitable the real story must emerge  of how our politicians have colluded with EU bureaucrats to overturn the referendum result and keep Britain in the Union as it moves closer to becoming a politically integrated superstate.

The news that the UK is out of the EU by law, having left on the 29th March 2019, by law. Theresa May had no constiutional authority to extend Article 50. This Judicial verdict in a case now before the High Court could and ought to bring down the UK government and see May and several of her ministers charged with treason. What news could and would be big enough to divert the worlds attention from fake news about The Russians allegedly interfereing in the US election, The inept attempts of the US Democratic Party to impeach and remove from office the elected president on charges of … well they’ll let us know when they have thought of something that might stick What news is big enough globally to distract not just UK news but world news?

Brexit has terrified ‘Brussels bubble’ – German insider

One Of The best Arguments For Leaving The EU

 

It is not often we look to the dear old Daily Express to keep us informed of the true left wing position on current issues but as the possibility of Britain  leaving the EU without a formal withdrawal agreement becomes a probability, and those Labour loony lefties, confuddled Conservatives and limp dicked Lib Dems  who led the Remain campaign and are still convinced that in a parallel universe they won continue to plot and scheme to thwart Brexit the arguments are becoming more toxic.

Yesterday I read a few paragraphs by someone claiming a no – deal break with Brussels with Brussels would result in all commercial arrangements currently in place between Britain and the bloc ceasing at 11pm on October 31. Well that’s wrongr but its an arguable case, but when the writer went a step further (a step beyond reality,) by claiming we would then be unable to trade with anybody I had to give up.

As Britain is now stuck in  Brexit limbo, with only Nigel Farage to argue against the threats and lies of the Brussels bureaucratic dictatorship until a new Conservative leader and bt tradition Prime Minister is elected, it was refreshing to hear on You Tube today a brilliant speech made by an anti EU Labour MP, Peter Shore. Unfortunately Shore died in 2001 and his anti EU speech was made over 40 years ago in an address to The Oxford Union (which in those days was so revolutionary it believed in free speech.

At the time, while Labour was, as ever, split on the question of EU membership it was the left, led by Tony Benn, with Shore among his closest associates, who saw the undemocratic, authoritarian and elitist nature of the EU. Conservative Prime Minister Edward Heath had taken Britain into the European Economic Community – the precursor of the EU – in 1973, but his Labour successor, Harold Wilson, was forced to call a referendum on the country’s membership after only two years.

The vote saw the country divided into Yes and No campaigns, as opposed to 2016’s “Leave” and “Remain”.

Testicularly deficient bureaucrats Jean Claude Juncker (left) who has said Britain must be made to pay for its decision to leave the EU and former Labour MP Peter Shore who warned us 40 years ago of the danger posed by the inward looking, authoritarian bloc.

Labour MP for Stepney Peter Shore was leading the No campaign’s debate alongside the most prominent eurosceptic figure in his party, the then Secretary of State for Industry Tony Benn when, just before the referendum, the prestigious Oxford Union and addressed issues which still exist today.

Winding up his speech Shore made a brilliant argument on why Britain should not stay in an exclusive  trading bloc that would restrict our ability to trade with the rest of the world.

He said: “We should put to ourselves the facts that the eight countries of Western Europe, important as they are, are not even half of Western Europe itself, let alone the whole of the continent of Europe.

(The EEC then had only nine members including Britain, but the point is still valid, the 27 current members only account for around 12% of the world’s sovereign nations with only Germany sneaking into the top twenty most populous nations at number nineteen. More significant, all those nations above Germany are growing economically, while EU economies are stagnant.)

Shore’s speech continued …

“Nor for that matter should we ignore the fact that there exist outside the continent of Europe altogether more European people or people of European origin? And that [there are more people] in the great continents of North America, Latin America and Australasia that exists in the whole common market put together?

Peter Shore at the Oxford Union in 1975 (Image: Oxford Union)

“Beyond that we should recall the fact that our horizon and the concerns that we have in the world as a country and as people are not limited to eight nations and 200million people in Western Europe, but to the 3000million people and 140 nations that exist in the six continents of the world

“The policies that we praise as a Government, the causes that we follow as people, the concerns that we have, are not confined and limited to this narrow area across the channel.”

Mr Shore concluded: “For that to happen to Britain it will be a contraction and a reduction of all the things with we have been concerned

“It is the world we belong to and it is mankind of which we are part, so let us hear.”

He was absolutely correct, while the European trading bloc confined its ambitions to being a free trade area which would enable its members to simplify the bureaucracy involved in international trade, being a member was a good idea. However when the EEC, or EC as it had become, morphed from a trade association to a political entity heading towards the absorption of its sovereign member states into a federal superstate it became a bad idea for the people of those member states, an idea that would only ever benefit the elites.

Shore, Benn and their colleagues in the campaign to take us out of the EEC were aware of the federalist ambition. And in those distant days most people in the Labour Party clung to the rather quaint belief that working class people were of equal worth with the professional, managerial and academic classes and the wealthy elitists of industry, commerce and finance and the insufferable luvvies of the mass entertainment media.

 

 

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative leadership contender Boris Johnson facing trial for his claim, during the EU Referendum campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Remainers claimed somebody in the Leave camp had said all the money would go to the NHS. Nobody actually said that but if fanatics want something to be true, they can easily convince themselves it is.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

‘Left-wing Intellectuals’ Are ‘Sneering at Ordinary People’ on Brexit

from Breitbart Europe

Labour Party chairman Ian Lavery has warned figures both within and without the party against “sneering at ordinary people” who support Brexit, in the wake of highly damaging European Parliament election results.

Labour and its hard-left leader Jeremy Corbyn — a lifelong Brexiteer prior to his elevation to the party leadership — officially endorsed remaining in the European Union ahead of the 2016 referendum, but fully committed to delivering the people’s vote for Brexit in its manifesto for the 2017 snap election which followed the vote to Leave.

However, the bulk of its MPs have worked steadily to reverse this position ever since, and much of its largely cosmopolitan, upper middle-class parliamentary leadership are now pushing openly for a so-called “confirmatory public vote” with Remain on the ballot.

How Much Does The UK Actually Send To The EU

Big kerfuffle this week over Conservative Party leadership contender Boris Johnson facing a court hearing over his claim, made during the EU Referendim campaign, that Britain sends £350million a week to Brussels. Originally the Rabid Remainers tried to claim somebody in the Leave campaign (they weren’t quite sure if it was Boris, Nigel Farahe, Jacob Rees – Mogg, Michael Gove or somebody else and didn’t really care,) had said all of the money would go to the NHS. Nobody had actually said it of course but such is the solipsism of the globalist camp that if they want something to be true, they can easily convince themseles it is true.

The claim is in fact true but misleading. If the amount paid into the EU budget is taken, then it is close to £350million a week. Our net contribution (i.e. after the amount paid by the EU to fund various EU supported projects means the net amount we contribute to the EU is somewhat less. However that £350million is not the full story:

from The Bruges Group

The true cost to Britain being a part of the European Union is close to £661 million per week since 2010, a number hidden from the British taxpayers due to an intricate payments system and largely ignored by the mainstream media.

Our estimated figure encompasses £80billion lost to the Treasury after the European Court of Justice forced tax rebates to multinationals.

A key area of controversy is on the rebate, an annual, purported “reduction” in United Kingdom’s contribution to the EU budget that’s equal to about 66% of the difference between what the UK contributes to the EU budget and its receipts from the EU.

Even after the rebate, in membership fees alone, Britain shelled out £70.6 billion since 2010.

Data derived from a briefing paper on “The UK’s contribution to the EU Budget” indicates Britain contributed between £8-10 billion per year. The same report acknowledged “the UK made the second largest net contribution to the EU budget in absolute terms, and the third largest net contribution per head of population” in 2015.

If the EU exceeds its budget, as it did in the fiscal year 2014-2015, UK is responsible for footing the difference. We did that year in the amount of £1.7 billion, as reported by the Daily Mail.

The EU demanded the amount after recalculating the income of member states dating back almost 20 years, penalizing the British economy that was found to be larger than previously determined. The article detailed Britain “paid the amount due” in full with two instalments not subject to rebates.

Parliament has no control over these payments since Britain is part of the EU and civil servants are legally obliged to pay these costs. Britain is increasingly relied upon as a financial support structure for Eurozone countries facing serious financial difficulty or at risk of defaulting on their debt

Brexit Is Now About More Than Leaving The EU

Until now we have not posted anything in the past few days on Brexit. Our position is well know to our readers, let’s face it, the saturation coverage left nothing new to be said.

The Hypocrisy and Snobbery Of The Remain Campaign And The Antidote

When I had to defriend a Facebook contact because she was arguing in favour of the EU, it was not simply because I support Brexit that I had become pissed of with her, it was the snobbish and condescending way she dismissed supporters of LEAVE and their case. People are entitled to their opinion on the European Union, but they should check the ‘facts’ they post in support of their arguments.
