Top German Politician Warns EU Determination To Punish Britain Will Harm Europe.

A leading German member of the European Parliament has warned that top EU negotiators frustrate Brexit in order to punish Britain and keep other Eurosceptic member-states in line as opposition to the Union’s authoritarian style of governance grows all around Europe.

Hans-Olaf Henkel, deputy chairman of the European Conservatives and Reformists Group – to which Britain’s ruling Conservative Party is aligned– claimed that Belgium’s former prime minister Guy Verhofstadt and France’s former foreign minister Michel Barnier “want to make a mess out of this whole unhappy situation” in an article published by The Times.

Verhofstadt, once described by UKIP’s Nigel Farage as “high priest” in “the temple of European federalism” by Brexit campaign leader is the European Parliament’s chosen representative in the Brexit negotiations.

EU Brexit negotiator Verhofstadt responds to Nigel Farage?

Barnier,  a former member of the unelected European Commission (Euronazis), as well as being Frane’s former foreign affairs chief, is the bloc’s chief negotiator.

“Mr Verhofstadt is an ambitious politician who wants to achieve a United States of Europe,” wrote Henkel, alleging that the attitude he typifies “was responsible in no small part” for the British public voting to Leave the European Union in June 2016.

“Mr Verhofstadt now wants to punish the British,” he continued.

“My impression is that Mr Barnier wants to do the same. The reason is simple. They would seek to make sure that Brexit is such a catastrophe that no country dares to take the step of leaving the EU again.”

Unfortunately many nations that are far more natural trading partners for Britain than the EU are falling over themselves in their eagerness to do business with British firms one we are free of the suffocating blanket of EU bureaucracy.

In Henkel’s estimation, failure to reach a reasonable separation agreement Britain would be “a terrible situation for us all,” he said, adding, “in Germany we value the ties we have with the British”. He probably means that German politicians are crapping themselves at the prospect of having to explain to German taxpayers just why they have to pick up the tab for the Union’s dept crippled ‘Club Mediterranean’ nations one the only other net contributor to the EU treasury has gone.

The UK will be the Eurozone’s single largest export market after Brexit, and Leave campaigner and former environment and rural affairs minister Owen Paterson MP has recently noted that Germany sold around 950,000 cars to British buyers in 2016 alone.

Other European leaders, such as Hungarian foreign minister Péter Szijjártó and Flemish minister-president Geert Bourgeois, have also said that attempting to “punish” the British would be damaging for the EU, with European exporters losing competitiveness and market share in the UK (mostly thanks to bureaucratic restrictions on trade and idiotic labour laws pushing up costs,)  as it reclaims its powers to conduct an independent trade policy and strikes deals with global economies such as Australia India, and the United States.

“The European Project Was Always Bound To Fail” – Europe Abandons The Union

After Brexit European Union Moves To Abolish Free Speech!
While European citizens are increasingly at risk of arrest for “hate speech” and “xenophobic remarks” (both terms for which there is no legal definition in any state of Europe,) the law does not apply equally to all Europeans, the ruling elites it sems can say what they like about whom they dislike.As I have previously mentioned (elsewhere if not here), in the mid 1980s I spent some time working for the European Union. It was not a long contract, I could have embedded myself and spent ten years picking up big fat freelance contractor fees for doing very little. The incessant meetings, consultations, steering groups, committees, policy documents and blah blah blah were driving me insane. In the end even the lovely and equally married Marie Dondelanger could not keep me in Luxembourg, which BTW is a delightful place to live and work.

My experience was similar to many people with a ‘doer’ mindset who have been involved with the EU’s bureaucratic machine and its culture of not doing but counting and measuring, documenting, regulating and planning.

The European project was always bound to fail. Europe is a continent riven by geographic and cultural barriers. It has spent two millennia not only indulging in massive and constant internal wars, but also keeping written records of them, informing each generation of all the times their forebears were wronged. Over the centuries, great empires have risen and fallen, leaving behind distinct groups of people with different histories, languages and cultures and enough chips on their shoulders to power a Google data centre.

Any project attempting merge these diverse economies and cultures into one centrally controlled, bureaucratically governed superstate over the course of just 70 years was doomed from the outset. It would inevitably encounter insurmountable levels of nationalistic resistance, both pragmatic and emotional, and eventually the project would implode. That is where we now find ourselves.

Crises proliferate, and though they all have different outward appearances each stems from the same underlying issue: Human beings value their national and regional identities over the supranational dream. The sovereign debt crisis and repeating Grexit scares, born of the introduction of the euro in 1999, have exposed Northern Europe’s unwillingness to subsidize the south. TheBrexit referendum, scheduled for June, can trace its roots to the 2004 enlargement of the European Union, which unleashed a wave of Polish and east European migration to the United Kingdom. Meanwhile, amid the ongoing immigration crisis, national leaders are appeasing their populations by bypassing European rules and re-erecting border controls to stem the flow of refugees across their territory.To be fair here, the EU rules on free movement were never meant to grant people from outside the Union free access through its borders or free movement within the EU.

In all of these situations, the same factors are at work: The driving forces within Europe are national in nature, and member nations will ultimately put their own interests first.

Today’s problems were both predictable and predicted.  Having identified the flaws in  a system is one thing however, to propose ways of fixing those flaws without introducing new and even more serious flaws is quite another. And after many years tickering around the edges, the EU’s flaws have become terminal.

There are still many different ways that the demise of the European Union’s current form could come about. For example, the project could unravel via market forces, as it nearly did in 2012 when investors tested the commitment of the core to save the periphery and found it to be (barely) willing to do so. Or a disaffected populace could elect a nationalist party such as France’s National Front, which could either lead the country out of the European Union or make the bloc so unmanageable that it ceases to function.

Perhaps the most likely scenario at this point would be for the European Union to survive as a ghost of its former self, with its laws ignored and stripped back to the extent that it holds only a loose grip on its members.

When Britain joined in 1974 after a referendum, those of us who voted for the EU were led to believe our country would be joining a free trade association. In fact, as I was reminded every morning on the way to my office in the Baitment Jean Monnet, by a large stone plaque in the lobby, the original vision in the years that followed World War Two, the intention was always to dissolve the sovereign nations of Europe and by geographic expansion and economic integration to create a single European state.

£1 Billion Migrant Bill:Remain Campaign Rattled As Welfare Spending Soars

david-cameron-eu-deal-644868

David Cameron with Europe’s three Presidents (which should tell you all you need to know about how bloated EU bureaucracy is; ‘Gaulieter’ Martin Schultz, who says public opinion is irrelevant; Donald Tusk who says the European Council with veto and deal that benefits Britain; and bottom, Jean Claude Drunkard, President of the EU commission who has brandy for breakfast

The UK welfare system is expected to pay out more than £1 billion to unemployed European Union (EU) migrants, government data has revealed. The figure does not include spending on the estimated 1 million plus non-EU illegal immigrants in the country. The findings will come as a major blow for the campaign led by David Cameron and supported by most of the Labour party (and even Jeremy Corbyn a longtime opponent of the EU is supporting ‘In’ although in a very lukewarm way) to keep Britain in the EU. Supporters of the ‘Brexit’ campaigns have argued that they demonstrate what anti – EU campaigners have wanted for a long time, that there is an urgent need to reclaim control of our own borders.

This news will be particularly hurtful to the IN campaign because one of their main (though entirely dishonest) arguments is that being in the EU brings our economy net benefits.

In 2013/14, British taxpayers forked out a whopping £886million for unemployed EU migrants living in the UK, and a further £814 million for EU migrants in work, according to a government paper. Ironically, it was released in support of a dossier entitled The Best of Both Worlds, which aims to make the government’s case for Britain remaining within the EU.

In the foreword to the report, the Prime Minister David Cameron wrote: “Our special status gives us the best of both worlds. We will be in the parts of Europe that work for us – influencing the decisions that affect us, in the driving seat of the world’s biggest market and with the ability to take action to keep our people safe.”

But the government was not keen to release the report, and Mr Cameron’s own MPs have ridiculed him. Philip Davies, MP for Shipley told The Express: “It’s amazing we’ve got some figures at last, but one has to question how reliable they are. He’s right; with the supposedly politically neutral civil service having backed IN (bigger bureaucratic empires, bigger jollies for civil servants) the figure could well be deliberately understated, and the issue has been misreported by mainstream media and the ultra globalist BBC.

“It’s quite clear that immigration has gone up recently so the figures must be well over a billion pounds now, even by the Government’s own estimates.

“At last we are laying bare the huge cost of being a member of the EU. The changes the Prime Minister has negotiated are trifling – the only way to restrict benefits to EU migrants is to leave the EU.”

The eye-watering figures, and the failure to renegotiate a better deal have led to a number of pro-Brexit politicians warning that the only way to take control of immigration from the EU, and the welfare payments that come with it, is to leave the EU. It is also the only way to limit the flow of illegal immigrants into the country after they have illegally entered the EU through countries that cannot or choose not to enforce border controls.

Head Of European Institute: Brexit ‘Better’ For Everyone, Any Problems For UK Would Be ‘Short Term’

will-scribe-no-to-eu-01

 

Brexit would be the best result of Britain’s in / out referendum for both Britain and the EU i a Belgian professor who heads up the European Institute at the London School of Economics (LSE) has said.

Professor Paul De Grauwe (right) told ‘Terzake’— the evening news show on the Flemish public-broadcaster VRT — Eurosceptic sentiment in the UK favouring Brexit is very strong, and it would not disappear merely because British voters elect to stay in the European Union (EU) at the referendum. He said:

“There is a lot of hatred against Europe. The media and a major part of the political elite dislike the European Union. This will not disappear after the referendum.”

Hatred is a strong word and is probably inappropriate but modify that to say there is a lot of concern that too much of Britain’s national sovereignty is being eroded because of our EU membership and you have the truth.

According to Flanders News, Professor De Grauwe has lived and worked in the UK for four years. As head of the LSE’s European Institute — a centre dedicated to the interdisciplinary study of integration and fragmentation in Europe — he represents a sort of authoritative voice on the European question.

Acknowledging that the goal of ‘out’ campaigners “is to bring as much sovereignty back from Brussels to London as possible” he said there would not be a workable solution  if the UK chooses to remain in the EU. He explained:

“The anti-Europeans will just continue their strategy. They will block all efforts to integrate further, and they will try to have powers devolved to Westminster again. This is not in the EU’s interests. That is why it’s probably better for the EU that the British leave.”

Although he first told VRT Brexit would “probably not” benefit the UK, he went on to concede that any problems would be short-lived.

Britain would have to negotiate a new trade deal with the EU in the short term, but would be in a strong position due to debt problems in the Eurozone. It might be a rough ride, but only during a period of transition, once the economy was disentangles from EU bureaucracy and freed of EU restrictions on trading, the economy would surge ahead as the Eurozone continues to stagnate.

Why You Will Soon Be Sorry You didn’t Vote UKIP

The EU is anti democracy, the unelected bureaucrats of the EU Commission (the guys who really run things) regard the European parliament as irrelevant. And yet the members of the pro integration Social Democrat – Christian Democrat alliance that has a safe majority believes it has the right to select the next President of the EU Commission.

Here’s a brief note on the three leading candidates:

from The Daily Stirrer, How Can Mainstream Politics Respond To The Anti EU Surge Across Europe?:

… the next president of the EU executive branch, the European Commission, will be appointed soon after the elections. In the EU administrative structure, the commission is largely in charge of what goes on. Bizarrely, because of the Lisbon Treaty, that fine example of EU democracy which was a rehashed version of the European Constitution vetoed by voters in France, The Netherlands and Ireland, but which the EU bureaucracy went ahead and adopted anyway (sic), no one knows who ultimately decides who becomes the president, although the EP claims that it, somehow, has the democratic right to determine the appointment.

The three leading candidates the EP has proposed make current president, the Stalinist billionaire José Manuel Barroso who has said that for the Europe project to succeeed individual nations must cease to exist and that the European Parliament is irrelevant and if the MEPs do not approve a recommendation, the bureaucrats “just go ahead and do it anyway”.

Against the candidates to replace him however, Barosso looks like a raving Eurosceptic: for the socialists there is Martin Schulz, who thinks it’s “possible and necessary” to have a United States of Europe; the liberals offer Belgian Guy Verhofstadt, who has likened Cameron to a “mad man threatening to blow himself up”; and, for the EPP, the uninspiring Jean-Claude Juncker, for 18 years the prime minister of Luxembourg, infamous for saying important EU decisions should be taken “in dark secret rooms”.”

“When it becomes serious, you have to lie,” Junker once offered as an excuse when a European Commission answer to a query by a political leader in one of the member states was expose as a fabrication.

So the fresh faces of European democracy are all 55-plus men owing their careers to the dated notion of “ever closer union” that led to the big gap between voters and Brussels in the first place. Even in Germany, only 17 per cent of voters can identify their compatriot Martin Schulz as a lead candidate, according to a recent poll.

Feeling outraged at the contempt these smooth faced pen pusher and bean counters have for us? Or maybe your dream of a utopian future fearures a the military boot stamping down on a human face forever, that George Orwell foretold. Here’s what the BBC Europe correspondent Chis Morris reported today:

Parliamentary leaders are waiting to see whether their cunning plan to nominate the next president of the European Commission will actually bear fruit.

The centre-left Socialist group has, somewhat reluctantly, backed the bragging rights of the candidate from the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP), Jean-Claude Juncker.

“The EPP – despite substantial losses – remains the largest group in the European Parliament,” said Johannes Swoboda, the head of the Socialist group in the outgoing parliament.

“Its candidate for commission president therefore has the clear right to start negotiations to seek a majority in the European Parliament.”

When I asked Mr Juncker last week if he could direct me to the clause in the Lisbon treaty that gives him the “clear right” to be nominated, he looked at me with barely concealed distaste.

“You see it from your perspective,” he said, “and I see it from mine. It’s about democracy.”

Let’s (briefly) be clear. The Lisbon Treaty says EU leaders must take the results of the European elections into account when they decide whom to nominate.

The parliament gets to vote on the nomination, but it has also interpreted the treaty language to mean whichever parliamentary group wins the elections should automatically win the nomination as well.

OK, that’s a little peep at how things get done in Europe, bitter and acrimonious infighting kept out of public view and secret deals made by sleazy political operators behind closed doors.

That is why you should have voted UKIP, that is why we should get out and that is why those left wing Nazis, particularly the self congratulating idiots who are too politically illiterate to understand what they are supporting is fascism, should be marginalised and subjected to ridicule at every opportunity.

Ghandi, Buddha, science tits and some common sense,

Recently I have found it hard to be amusing on this blog. The news being reported by mainstream media is a parody of what is actually going on in our world, and it is very difficult to parody a parody. Likewise when we try to satirise the antics of government supra national bureaucracy and corporations that are obviously telling us lies and we are then attacked by ‘useful idiots’ who are eager to tell us these same fascistic polictical and commercial organisations are wholly benign and we simply are not qualified to question them, the satirists task becomes impossible.

Earlier I was looking at a thread on an article about climate change which a science tit had claimed the notorious and totally discredited ‘hockey stick’ graph was right after all. One regular commenter in that forum who claims to be a science tit said, “The hockey stick was always right, the science is settled and only right wing nutters are interested in trying to pick at the theory until it unravels. A consensus of scientists agreed Mann’s hypothesis was correct and so it must be accepted as fact; that is how science works.”

Um, no it’s not actually. Science works by sceptics picking at the fabric of a theory until it unravels. If the hypothesis has any worth it does not unravel, then it can be considered a scientific fact.

I’m constantly reminded these days, when I encounter those people who wave their educational qualifacations at us or tell us “I’m a scientist,” as if that will put us in awe of their superior intellect as they parrot the propaganda of the govrnment – corporate alliance of a scene in The Wizard Of Oz (not my favourite film I hasten to point out)

Dorothy and her companions, the cowardly lion, the tin man and the straw man have arrived in Oz to ask the Wizard to grant their wishes. The straw man asks for a brain. The Wizard whose magic, as any fule kno, relies on smoke and mirrors, tells him, “If you want people to admire your intelligence you don’t need a brain, all you need is a diploma.”

how true those words have become in our modern, crazy world. Still I can take comfort from the words of Gandhi:

‘When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it – always.’ ― Mohandas K Gandhi.

And if you want to discover the truth, The Buddha has some wise advice:

Believe nothing you hear or are taught without first testing it against your own experience and common sense.

Is using taxpayers money to pay prostitutes ever justifiable?

We all had a good laugh at the antics of Silvio (Don Vito) Berlusconi as we thought, “Oh well, Italy, you know …”

But as Boggart Blog has said many times, they’re all at it. And paying for it with our money.

Dominic Strauss Khan, former head of the International Monetary Fund, former future President of France and alleged rapist was freed following accusations made by a hotel maid who said he raped her in New York. The woman was found by prosecutors working for the Politically Correct Thought Police in New York to be an unreliable witness on account of being black and a bit dim. Now however he has been named in another sex scandal.

A 30-year-old woman named Florence who describes herself as “a libertarian and part-time high-class prostitute” has lifted the lid even further on the can of worms that is the international gravy train bureaucracy. And once again the apparently insatiable sexual appetite of the one-time French presidential favourite is at the centre of the scandal.

Talking about sex orgies at which both she and DSK were present Florence is reported to have told police that “every girl in the room” had intercourse with him during each of a series of eleven sex sessions in a variety of locations – from a Brussels recording studio to a luxury hotel a stone’s throw from the White House.

Le Parisien, which cited the woman at length, said the 62-year-old economist had “exceptional vigour”, and was “above all interested in newcomers” to such parties. “With the older ones it was less intense,” she said.

Fair play to the old goat if at age 62 he can keep it up through eleven encounters in quick succession (although viagra is cheating a bit) but if my tax money is paying for high class prostitutes I want them brought to me here, NOW!

Alternatively I suggest we take up our pitchforks and cudgels and take to the streets to get rid of these elitist scumbags, both locally and internationally.
