UK Would To Be Forced To Pay $63 Million For New EU Parliament Building

 

1054550208

If a plan to redevelop the European Parliament building, one of the most opulent buildings ever constructed and less than 30 years old, is approved before the UK transiton period ends in 2020, the British taxpayers will have to to share the multimillion costs for new building, which the UK won’t use or need after leaving the European Union.

The $487 million reconstruction of Brussel’s European parliament buildings will not be started until after Brexit day, but according to EU lawyers what maters is the date the project is approved. If we get caught it may add up millions to the UK’s multibillion divorce bill for leaving the European Union.

According to the Times, the revamp of the EU building, finished only in 1993 at a total cost $1.2 million, is designed to separate the MEPs from visitors, press and other public they accidentally mix with due to the current structure. This is what is described as “far from ideal by the cited officials.

Apart from ensuring members do not have to rub shoulders with ordinary mortals the plan will also give them a new more luxurious restaurant and kitchen, according to the cited internal documents.”

 

There are security reasons for the upgrade according to EU freeloaders, and the building was found unsafe after ceiling in the debating chamber collapsed; five years ago and structural problems were detected.

The preliminary plan suggests two options. According to the Times, which cited internal documents, the preferred one is demolishing the block and building it from the scratch, which will cost $46 million more than refurbishment. The confidential papers state that the final decision is to be taken in “the second semester of 2019,”after the European elections next May over fears of public criticism and being exploited by the euro-sceptics.

German Government In Crisis After Coalition Rebellion Over Immigration

Hot on the heels of Italy’s rejection of EU federalism and the open doors approach to immigration and with the fragmentation of Spain and the shambolic attempts to bully Britain into abandoning Brexit ongoing, Europe has another immediate political crisis on its hands, and this one could be the big one that rips the economic heart out of the EU.

The Wall Street Journal reports today, a rebellion over immigration in German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s conservative bloc is threatening the stability of her fragile coalition. Merkel’s weekend decision to veto a plan by her interior minister aimed at controlling and reducing illegal migration, and the minister’s refusal to back down, has as we reported earlier this week, already shattered the fragile unity in her coalition between conservative backers and opponents of her liberal asylum policy, just months after the ramshackle coalition government was cobbled together.

With neither side giving way  Merkel faced a showdown within her conservative camp over the the future of immigration policy that threatens her political future, because she has committed herself publicly to continuing her ‘open borders’ approach. The Local reports, after late-night talks failed to offer a resolution to the heated immigration dispute, a parliamentary session was suspended Thursday to allow the rival camps confer on strategy.

Specifically, Merkel is facing a rebellion from her hardline Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, who demands that German border police be given the right to turn back migrants without identity papers or who are already registered elsewhere in the European Union. The chancellor fears that such a move would be seen as stoking the wave of nationalist and anti EU feeling that has swept across the EU since the immigration crisis came to the fore in 2015 and be seen as Germany abandoning frontline Mediterranean countries such as Italy and Greece, after forcing unwelcome immigrant quotas on them. With Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia and the balkan states already at loggerheads with Brussels over it’s authoritarian handling of the crisis,  Merkel has urged a negotiated EU response instead.

The top-selling German newspaper Bild argued that “if no agreement is reached, Angela Merkel must face a vote of confidence and every lawmaker must decide … Keep going with Merkel’s way or face an adventure called fresh elections.”

Meanwhile, Augsburger Allgemeine reported on Thursday that Seehofer’s CSU is considered breaking off their alliance with the Merkel’s CDU in the Bundestag. In other words, an outright rebellion within the government, ending the ruling coalition.

The AA quoted an unnamed senior figure in the CSU who said “we aren’t far away from a split. It is touch and go for our united Bundestag faction.”

The tensions have been building for years: Seehofer, from Bavaria state’s CSU party, has long been harshly critical of Merkel’s decision to open German borders in mid-2015 to a mass influx of over one million asylum seekers. At the height of the crisis, tens of thousands of people fleeing war and misery in Syria, Iraq and other countries crossed the Austrian border into Germany per day in the Alpine state of Bavaria.

The consequences are well known: the mass refugee arrivals, together with numerous high-profile crimes committed by migrants and terrorist attacks by ISIS-sympathizers since, sparked the rise of Germany’s anti-immigrant AfD party, which entered parliament last year, upending German politics while support for Germany’s establishment parties cratered.

As positions in Merkel’s latest domestic battle hardened, the CSU’s Bavarian state premier Markus Soeder said that “in immigration, we must no longer do things by halves. We must think about the local population, not just the rest of Europe.”

What makes the rebellion especially surprising is that Merkel’s CDU and the more conservative CSU are traditional sister parties, but the emotional immigration issue has opened a rift between them that is deepening as the CSU faces an electoral threat by the AfD in a state poll in October.

In sharp contrast to Merkel, Seehofer has voiced open sympathies for right-wing populist governments that are tough on immigration, from Hungary to Austria and Italy. When Seehofer met Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz on Wednesday, Kurz announced that the interior ministers in Vienna, Rome and Berlin had formed an “axis of the willing” to combat illegal immigration.

Which is just the thing Merkel, and her liberal, globalist influencers who include George Soros and, hates to hear. Recent developments in world politics, from the Brexit vote and Donald Trumps shock victory in the 2016 US presidential election and the gains made by nationalist parties in elections throughout 2017, the inclonclusive German election last September that left Merkel stranded, at the mercy of her coalition parties to the victory of Eurosceptic Italian parties and the vote by the Catalan province of Spain to secede from the national government all combine to suggest the game is up for the globalists. Globalisation could only ever benefit the rich and powerful.

Disillusionment With EU Grows as Swedish Support Slumps By 30%

Immigrant criminals and Swedish criminals are viewed differently in the eyes of Swedish law.
We ask why it is, in Sweden, that when a Swede kills two immigrants it is an act of terrorism that shames the nation, but when an African immigrant kills a Swedish mother and her young child, in the eyes of the government it is somehow the victim’s fault? The big concern is that, given the desperation of our Conservtive and Labour party leaders to make us more European, such politically correct insanity will be inflicted in Britain next

Another Setback For Macron As French National Assembly Rejects Immigrant Boats

Another setback for Macron came as he intensified his lobbying to push the EU more rapidly towards financial and political integration. Always a supporter of the insance open doors immigration policy, Macron, who is on record as having said Europe cannot survive without a continuous influx of illiterate peasants from Africa and Asia had to watch as French national assembly members voted to back the Eurosceptoc Italian government’s decision to close its ports to ships carrying illegal immigrants rescued from the waters of the Mediterranean after being dumped at sea by criminals who run the people trafficking rackets.

French conservative lawmaker Eric Ciotti said no French port should take in the Aquarius, the humanitarian ship stranded in international waters in the Mediterranean since Saturday.

“No French port – not Corsica, not Nice, not Marseille [should take in the Aquarius],” Mr Ciotti told the French television channel CNews, adding that the migrant ship should “head back towards the Libyan coast”.

“Do we want Nice to become the next Lampedusa?” he said, referring to the Italian island which has become a popular landing point for migrants. “I hope France will hold firm on this issue”.

Italy and Malta have both refused to let the rescue ship, whose passengers include 11 children and seven pregnant women rescued off the coast of Libya by the French charity SOS Mediterranée on the weekend, to dock, prompting the European Union and the UN’s refugee agency to call for an end to the standoff.

On Monday, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez, a socialist who took power less than two weeks ago, said that the ship could dock in the eastern port of Valencia, where it is currently headed.

So while the little grandmotherfucker Macron is strutting around pretending to  be a world leader, the future is looking bleak for France just a year into his presidency.

Italy vs EU Clash – When Will It Kick Off?

The League / Five Star coalition Italian government’s economic policies will almost certainly bring the country (opulation 60 million) into conflict with the financial diktat of the Brussels wannabe bureucratic dictators, if the county’s new hard line on immigration do not do so first.

On Italy this is likely just the calm before the next storm given the Five Star and League coalition government’s economic policies are almost inevitably going to be in conflict with the fiscal rules set by Brussels — though the confrontation may take longer to come to a boil because of the presence of technocrats in the new government, a compromise required by Italian president Sergio Mattarella for the government to be formed on June 1. Signs are that the coalition paln to press ahead with the program agreed by League and Five Star leaders regardless of attempts by the EU appointed technocrats to bring the government into line behind Brussel’s push for fiscal integration of its member states.

Over the weekend however, Italy once again roiled Europe,  by demonstrating its drastic shift in immigration politics, when the country’s new populist leader, Matteo Salvini, now operating as Minister of the Interior, made good on his warning last weekend that “the good times for illegals are over”, writing an urgent letter ordering Malta to accept a ship carrying 629 shipwrecked North African migrants currently sitting off the Italian coast – calling Malta the “safest port” for the passengers, and advising that Rome will no longer offer refuge.

rsz_gettyimages-655958494-640x480_0The M V Aquarius carrying over 600 undocumented economic migrants

The Italian message to Europe was simple: having been the port of landing for tens of thousands of migrants in the past two years, Rome would no longer accept boat after boat of North African (or middle eastern) refugees.

Italy’s vocal resistance to accepting further migrants sparked outrage among European leaders who are still ‘on message’ about immigration but Hungary’s Victor Orban and a few others expressed support for the Italians. The move prompted prominent Marxist billionaire (if there’s one thing the left are consistent in it’s hypocrosy,) George Soros, who funds many ‘charities’ involved in helping illegal immigrants get from Africa and Asia to Europe, and the person many have accused of being behind Europe’s unsupportable migration patterns, to urge the EU to compensate Italy for the 100,000+ migrants landing there, noting that the strong showing of far-right parties partly is due to Europe’s ‘flawed’ migration policies.

So just get that straight: Soros and EU leaders including Macron of France and Germany’s Angela Merkel think that the swing in the political balance to the right, which has been triggered by mass immigration can only be fixed by more mass immigration. That only makes sense if you believe the warnings of ‘conspiracy theorists’ that the elite plan to flood Europe with ignorant, semi literate third world peasants and displace the indigenous populations because primitive, religion obsessed peasants are easier to control than educated, questioning Europeans.

Italy of course it a bit too big to be pushed around as Greece, Cyprus, Portugal and Ireland have been pushed around by the EU and with Britain on the way out, Spain fragmenting and Poland, Hungary, Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovenia already at loggerheads with the EU it’s only a matter of time before the whole thing explodes.

 

 

EU’s arrogant plan to break defiance in Italy is a dangerous game

After Eurosceptic parties Lega and Five Star Movement thwarted the atempt of pro – EU president Matarella to overturn the democratic vote and prevent the Eurosceptic coalition from forming a government, the EU, showing its usual comtempt for democracy and the welfare of the people has decided to punish the nation and its people, in similar ways to those used to punish Greece, Portugal and Ireland when the diktat of Brussels was defied. The result is Italy no longer has a lender of last resort ready to buy up its sovereign debt, and therefore has no last line of defence for its always dodgy commercial banking system.

As long as Italians remain defiant and refuse to accept a government of EU approved bureaucratic appointees, The European Central Bank will progressively removing its shield as quantitative easing is wound down and purchases of Italian bonds fall to zero. There will be no protection by the end of the year. The Draghi pledge to do “whatever it takes” to prop up Italy’s membership of the single currency system no longer holds.

No ECB rescue will be possible unless the Italian parliament formally authorises the government to invoke the EU /IMF bail-out mechanisms (OMT-ESM) and accepts austerity imposed by Brussels. This would amount to a “Troika” regime similar to the one that wreaked havoc on society in Greece in order to protect the interests of European .

The bail out funds would then have to be approved by a vote in the German Bundestag and the Dutch Tweede Kamer. The terms they would impose on Italy would effectively put that nation under German occupation. An Italian government would not be able to act without permission from Berlin. It is inconceivable that either Lega nationalists and Five Star Eurosceptics would accept such an arrangement. Some of them would see it as a tactical opportunity to free their country from the “German cage” of monetary union.

President Sergio Mattarella may be a man of Virtù but he is also an unelected placeman of the old “casta”. Should he try to deliver Italy to EU budget commissars through a technical government, in defiance of his own parliament, he risks a dangerous breakdown of civil order.

What the EU are overlooking is that Italy, with a population of almost sisty million and the eighth largest economy in the world, might not accept being bullied as Ireland, Portugal and Greece with their small populations and weak economies had to. They are making the same mistake with Britain, and despite the best efforts of Theresa (the appeaser) May to yield to all their demands are making a civilised process leading to Btitain’s exit from the Union impossible.

Europe has gone back to the ridiculous circumstances of the 2011 crisis when Brussels prioritised saving the failinjg single currency over the economic interests of membr states and a Eurozone member state could lose access to the capital markets and slide into bankruptcy, like any private company, or the City of Detroit, or Orange County (1994).

Italy however, despite its perpetual political and financial chaos chaos, is not a poor nation. The country does not have a debt problem as such. While public liabilities (sovereign debt etc.) are high at 132pc of GDP, private liabilities are low. The Bank of International Settlements estimates that total (core) debt is 263pc of GDP, compared to 290pc in the Netherlands, 303pc in France, 321pc in Portugal, and 338pc in Belgium.

Italians have greater financial wealth per capita than the Germans. They have €1 trillion in bank accounts and $3 trillion in liquid assets. The country has a current account surplus of 2.6pc of GDP. It has a primary budget surplus of 1.7pc of GDP, and a better fiscal record lately than France or Spain.

It is rich but it has become trapped in a “bad equilibrium” with an overvalued intra-EMU exchange rate, as a direct result of being forced to accept the Euro single currency twenty years ago, when although it did not meet the qualifying standards set by the EU itself, it was admitted thanks to creative accounting because the project was never about economic stability, but was seen a major step towards political union and a European Superstate.

Italy To Become The Hub Of The EU’s Change Or Die Dilemma

The Eurosceptic,  populist coalition that won the right to form a new government in Italy, Five Star Movement and Lega have agreed their government. The legislative program is very independent and nationalistics  And the bureaucrats in Brussels hate it.

At the moment Brussels is trying to scare the outsiders now in charge in Italy, just as they scared greece, Portugal and Ireland, to soften their stances on reform and maintain a status quo which is destroying a great country and culture. The problem is, excluding Britain which is on the way out, Italy is the third largest EU member nation by both population and economy. And the leaders of the coalition have made clear the position that what is good for Italy is their main priority and what’s god for Brussels and Germany (which are the same thing realy,) are minor considerations.

The League and Five Star Movement leaked demands for $250 billion in debt relief from the ECB.  There was also a demand for developing a mechanism for countries to leave the euro, according to a, now discredited, report from Reuters.

The final proposal doesn’t have any of this inflammatory language, but don’t think the leak wasn’t part of their negotiating strategy or part of where the are ultimately planning to take their country.

The rest of the proposal is hostile enough to Brussels (see below) to cause a major schism with other south European nations and possible the Visegrad group led by Poland’s Eurodissidents supporting the Italians.  And with ECB President Mario Draghi now signaling the need to consolidate European sovereign debt under its umbrella, the stage is set for a huge bust up.

Here’s conservative economist Martin Armstrong’s take:

So everyone else understands what this is about, the ECB President Mario Draghi has come out and proposed interlocking the euro countries to create a “stronger” and “new vehicle” as a “crisis instrument” to save Europe. He is arguing that this should prevent countries from drifting apart in the event of severe economic shocks. Draghi has said it provides “an extra layer of stabilization” which is a code phrase for the coming bond crash. [emphasis mine]

In effect Armstrong is telling us that Draghi understands how bad things truly are and that Italian leadership knows they have the upper hand in debt negotiations. They are prepared to push Brussels hard to get what they want.  And well they should.  League leader Matteo Salvini understands how ruinous the euro as administered by Germany has been for Italy and most of Europe, particularly Greece, Cypris, Portugal and Spain.

So, to him, if the price for Italy to stay in the EU is to force the northern countries to accept debt consolidation and write-down then so be it.

If they won’t agree to that, then Italy’s new leadership is prepared to back to the people and say, “We tried.  Screw them. Let’s walk.”

The rest of the coalition proposals are a mishmash of right and left policy prescriptions that will drive the IMF and Brussels mad.  But it is a credit to these very different parties that they have managed to agree the compromises they must make work if they are to take back their country from the insanity of the status quo in Europe, which serves no one’s ends except the globalist cartel which stands behind the public faces of the EU – Juncker, Merkel, Tusk, Macron, etc.

One is calling for lower taxes and regulation, the other wants generous pensions and universal income.  These are not easy differences to overcome. But they have, to no one’s complete satisfaction. Both leaders and their parties understand the main issues facing their government are immigration and Italy’s relationship with the EU.

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.
The Labour Case For Brexit by Kate Hoey M.P.
After my short intro is a savage indictment by Brexit supporting Labour MP Kate Hoey of the way the Labour Party has abandoned the working class and is now trying to betray the party’s proud heritage and its roots in the industrial areas by taking Britain into an undemocratic, corporate controlled, capitalist friendly, elite dominated globalist control freak project.
Dutch Referendum This Week Shows why We Should Leave The EU.

Cameron’s EU Package: Not A Deal But A Few Turns In The Spin Machine
As we and almost everybody else predicted, David Cameron’s deal to improve Britain’s relationship with the EU is worthless. It changes nmothing, and can be vetoed once we have voted to stay in.

EU Refuses to Block Eurozone Integration to Reach Agreement With UK
Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann said at the E?U summit on British membership terms that the European Union wants to reach an agreement with the United Kingdom, but it is not prepared to compromise the banking union (financial integration) or the further integration of monetary union (UK being forced to abandon the pound join the Euro?) to achieve this goal.
Cameron’s EU Deal Worthless. It Can Be Vetoed In European Parliament?
Opinion polls show Britain is evenly divided on the question of whether to leave or remain in the EU, though it has been suggested up to 10 million other voters, many of them women, have yet to make a decision. How they cast their vote will shape the future of the world’s fifth largest economy and the EU itself. But what is really at stake is more important than economics …

Twilight Of The Roman God?

French president Emmanuel Macron as Jupiter (Source: https://staticmediapart.fr/etmagine/)

When Emmanuel Macron came from nowhere to be elected President of France
following a landslide victory a year ago, he pissed people off almost immediately by
telling journalists he would not answer their questions because they were not smart enough to understand his thoughts. Shortly after that he declared he would rule “in the style of a Roman god,” and compared himself to Jupiter, the Roman equivalent of Zeus or Odin. It’s no wonder then that just a year later the wheels have come off the bandwagon and the man, who was once seen as the saviour and deliverer of his country, a symbol of hope and renewal, seems to have turned into a source of mirth, widely ridiculed by the French for his grandiose posturing and inept efforts to deliver on his promises.

In early May 2017, Macron won the French presidential elections with 66.1 percent of the vote, one of the biggest landslide results in the history of the French Fifth Republic. A month later, his party, ‘Republic on the Move’ (LREM), scored another impressive victory by winning a majority of seats in the French parliament. It should be noted that these results were largely due to a stitch up, with France close to ruin after the disastrous socialist policies of former president Francois Holland, and Marine le Pen’s Front National party topping the polls only months before the election, the socialists and Gaullists (conservatives) combined to advise supporters to vote Macron, because Le Pen had to be stopped and the crumbling dream of a federal European superstate preserved at all costs.

Under the boy wonder’s stewardship it is now becoming clear those costs will be far greater than anyone imagined. Macron, while supporting the USA’s military interventions in the middle east, has thrown his weight behind more immigration and more Islamification for Europe, and following strong performances by Eurosceptic parties in German, Austrian and Italian elections, combined with growing resistance to the authoritarian attitude of Brussels towards member states, has called for acceleration of the push to political integration of the EU member states.

Some of Macron’s reforms so far have attempted to revive the French economy and increase the country’s competitive advantage on the international stage by targeting labor laws and social benefits. However measures such as a public sector pay freeze and making it easier for workers to be fired while also capping redundancy payouts have been disastrous for Marcon’s standing in popularity polls. The changes have also led to Marcon being dubbed The President for The Rich. The benefits and subsidies system is seen as  the foundation of France’s social and economic structure, and is guarded by powerful trade unions.

The reforms were also aimed at reducing the country’s high unemployment rate but as Macron insists on speeding up the admission of unskilled, illiterate migrants from the third world, it seems he is trying to solve one unemployment problem and simultaneously importing another.

A former Goldman Sachs investment banker, which was always going to ensure the left treated his every move with suspicion, Macron’s policies also angered students to the extent that they blocked several educational facilities across France, including the famous Sorbonne, in response to the government’s plans to introduce admission criteria and rank young people who apply to universities.

Meanwhile the powerful rail workers union began calling rolling rail strikes, which have severely disrupted train services throughout the country, with the goal of forcing Macron to rethink his plan for a major overhaul of state rail operator SNCF.

In the face of rising discontent with his government among all sectors of French society, Macron has maintained a god – like remoteness from public opinion as he drives ahead with a program of reforms which will prepare France for the transition to a province of Federal Europe.

His own party, however, which he formed only a year before the election as a stop Le Pen option when it became clear the traditional parties could not win, still accuse Macron of infringing upon worker’s rights and doing favors for corporate “bosses” at the cost of others.
