Deal or No-Deal, Brexit Dooms the Euro

authored by Tom Luongo for Gold, Goats and Guns

Deal or No-Deal, when it comes to Brexit, the euro is toast. Markets, however, believe the fantasy of its survival. As we approach the end of July the euro clings to support at $1.11, mere pips away from a technical breakdown.

That breakdown will trigger a wave of asset liquidation and another round of negative headlines emanating from troubled German banks.

With 10 Downing St. now saying No-Deal is acceptable, the hard line negotiating tactics of the European Union have hit a rocky shore.

Because it looks like Boris Johnson is ready to give as good as he gets.

I’ve been saying this for a long time. The EU is not a tough nut to crack. They have no leverage in these Brexit negotiations.

Yanis Varoufakis bombshell: Pound to Euro Exchange Rate ‘Paradox,’ weakness of pound against Euro is good news for UK

posted by Phil. T Looker, 22 July 2019

Former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis claimed the reason why the euro is valued so highly compared to the pound or US dollar is because of a “delicious paradox” which sees the Eurozone actually being on the verge of a dramatic break-up, newly-resurfaced footage reveals.

Despite the uncertainty [surounding Brexit], the euro has largely remained strong since the 2016 referendum but, according to former Greek Finance minister Yanis Varoufakis, there is a shocking reason why this has occurred.

Mr Varoufakis called it a “delicious paradox”.

In a 2018 debate at the Oxford Union, the Greek minister explained: “Why do the money markets value the euro so highly compared to the pound, the American dollar?

“Suppose you are a Singaporean, Chinese, American or even a German investor, and for some reason, you agree with me that the fragmentation of the Eurozone is at an advanced stage, and the euro has never been weaker or more problematic.

“Should you sell your euros?

“No, let me share a secret with you. You should shift your euros to a German bank account.”

Mr Varoufakis explained that if the Eurozone breaks up and all the countries revert to their pre-euro currencies, euros held in German bank accounts will be re-denominated into Deutschmarks, which will be stronger than any other European currencies because of the country’s “huge account surplus”.

Court Overturns Fine Imposed By Biased Electoral Commission On Brexit Supporter.

A large fine imposed by a kangaroo court under the auspices of the UK’s democracy watchdog (allegedly,) The Electoral Commission,  on a young, working-class Brexit campaign organiser, Darren Grimes, has been overturned in the law courts. The case, which many Remain campaigners have used in their efforts to discredit and overturn the result of the 2016 referendum on EU membership.

The Electoral Commission is a supposedly impartial watchdog which has been criticised by Brexit supporters and Conservative campaigners for showing political bias both in the referendum and in cases arising from parliamentary and regional elections, is made up exclusively of pro – EU bureaucrats and former politicians. It’s judicial panel hit Grimes with the maximum individual fine of £20,000 although he is a student whose only income apart from his local authority grant is from a part-time job in a shop. His offence, apart from opposing the official narrative that sovereignty is an anachronism and all government power should be handed to supra national bodies made up of unelected bureaucrats, was based on accusations his youth-focused BeLeave group had been used as a conduit for the transfer of funds to the official ‘Vote Leave’ campaign, enabling it to exceed its spending limits.

After a cursory investigation of the allegations, the The Electoral Commission claimed that Grimes had exceeded BeLeave’s spending limits and wrongly reported them. For this he was reported to London’s Politically Correct Thought Police as well as imposing the excessive fine.

Grimes was adamant the judgement was incorrect and launched an appeal financed by crowdfunding, claiming that evidence had been ignored and his punishment was unjust as well as excessive. His legal fund was swelled by many contributions from individuals who supported Brexit. The arrogant elitists of the Electoral Commission went into overdrive in a bid to destroy an ordinary man for having the audacity to challenge them and proceeded to throw hundreds of thousands of pounds in taxpayer cash into railroading the court to uphold its fine and impose further penalties on Grimes .

The watchdog’s high powered legal team were unsuccessful however, with the County Court completely overturning the Electoral Commission’s fine after examining ALL the evidence in the case, concluding the verdict had been based on an extreme interpretation of a trivial human error.

“I am delighted and relieved that the Court has found me innocent,” Daren told the Guido Fawkes political blog after the verdict was announced, saying the case had “taken a huge toll on myself and my family”.

“The Electoral Commission’s case was based on an incorrectly ticked box on an application form – something that it had been aware of for over two years and had not been raised in two previous investigations,” he said.

“Yet the Commission still saw fit to issue an excessive fine and to spend almost half a million in taxpayer cash pursuing me through the courts… Today’s verdict is a victory against the Remain Establishment which has done all it can to try and discredit the biggest electoral victory in this country’s history,” he added.

“The powerful vested interests in this country don’t like the idea of the people taking back control… There has been a well- funded, coordinated campaign against me and those that have stood up to the Remain Establishment. Well today they have lost.”

N.B. had Guido not broken the story we would not have known of it as, predictably, it was totally blanked by mainstream 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:

British MEP Reveals Undemocratic EU Stitch Up Of Top Jobs

Brexit Party MEP Alexandra Phillips angrily blew the whistle on the undemocratic election process for choosing the European Parliament’s highly influential Committee chairs. The Newly elected MEP claimed the Federalist bloc had organised a “stitch-up behind closed doors”.

Phillips said she was “astonished” by the method the European Parliament uses to elect chairs of its committees. In a video uploaded to the Brexit Party MEP’s Twitter page (embedded below), Ms Phillips says: “So, I’ve just come back from my first committee as an MEP. I am on the Development Committee (DEVE) which is really important to me because I have lived and worked in India and Ghana and Kenya and Cameroon, lots of places.

“And I have seen how badly the EU as a corporate cartel and big business and big banking essentially rides roughshod with trade deals over developing worlds and then uses bits of aid to try and cover up the massive open wounds that they leave behind.

“But what astonished me, the agenda for this meeting was actually appointing the new chair of the Committee.

“But this is already stitched up behind closed doors by the big Parliamentary groups who decide that they will portion out the chairs of committees behind the scenes and then each candidate stands unopposed.

“So I went to the meeting and one chair and vice chairs were automatically appointed because they were the only candidates stepping forward.

“Remember this Parliament is 60 percent new MEPs who haven’t had experience in these areas before and so don’t know the systems and aren’t putting themselves forward.”

Alexandra Phillips tells of her shock at the lack of democracy or transparency in EU

EU leaders have also come under fire for undemocratically facilitating a backroom stitch-up for the bloc’s top job, that of President Of The European Commission. The person chosen to succeed Jean – Claude Juncker in the post is little known Federalist Ursula von Leyen, who emerged as the preferred candidate through a completely opaque process after better known figures were rejected by member states.

Much of the criticism centred around the abandonment of the so-called lead candidate (spitzenkandidat) process, which is designed to give a democratic mandate to the Commission presidency. Instead, leaders held a series of meetings across three days to fill European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker’s role before he is scheduled to step down at the end of October. But nobody seems to know who proposed von Leyen, who voted for her or what qualifies her for the job other than that she is German, a member of Angela Merkel’s CDU Prty know for loyalty to Merkel and a strong supporter of Merkel and Macron’s push to transfor the EU into a Federal superstate.

Following the talks among EU leaders, Ursula von der Leyen, who is currently Germany’s defence minister, a supporter of Federalisation and an advocate of an E U Army, was selected to be the next Commission President. She will become the next European Commission President if the European Parliament approves her appointment. Her path to power may not be smooth however. Member of the European Parliament from The Green Party and a coalition of socialist and communist parties have vowed to oppose her and claim they have the numbers to vote down her appointment.

Italy Arrests Captain Of Migrant NGO Ship After Illegal Docking

Italian leader Matteo Salvini continued to se the standard for leadersd of Eurosceptic EU member states when he ordered the arrest of the captain, crew members and passengers of a ship that crashed the Italian border control agency blockade to land its cargo of illegal immigrants on the Iitalian island of Lampeduesa. The captain of the migrant transport ship Sea Watch 3 had docked at Europe’s most southern port on the Italian island was arrested on Saturday following a protracted standoff, according to the New York Times.

Sea Watch 3 captain Carola Rackete

The 40 migrants onboard disembarked after 16 days on the Sea Watch 3, operated by German NGO Sea-Watch and operating under the Dutch flag and were taken to a detention centre for illegal entrants to Italy.

Captain Carola Rackete, 31, docked just before 2 a.m. after ramming an Italian government border-control vessel which was trying to stop them entering the port. Rackete was arrested on charges of “resisting a war ship,” which carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison.

A spokeswoman for the Sea Watch charity Giorgia Linardi said that the situation was still “unfolding,” and that the charges had yet to be formalized. She added that the migrants had been taken to a migration center on the island. The so – called charity is a politically motivated organisation whic specialises in helping illegal immigrants from third world nations entrer the European Union.

The Sea Watch, which rescued 53 people off the coast of Libya on June 12, had navigated toward Italy after rejecting an offer to dock in Tripoli, Libya, which humanitarian groups do not deem safe. Thirteen migrants had been allowed to disembark in Italy for medical reasons after the rescue. –New York Times

Italy’s Interior Minister, Matteo Salvini, closed the country’s ports to rescue ships last year and has demanded that other European nations (in this case The Netherlands, where the ship is registered, take in the undocumented migrants. On Friday, five countries offered to take them. Salvini, who has referred to the GNO vessel as a “pirate ship,” told RAI state radio that he had “ordered the arrest of an outlaw” who had recklessly endangered the lives of Italian border patrol officers. He also ordered authorities to sequester the ship “which goes around the Mediterranean breaking laws.”

</p

On Saturday morning, Salvini posted a video of the ship's arrival at Lampedusa on Twitter, writing "Outlaw commander arrested. Pirate ship confiscated. Maxi-fine to a foreign NGO. Migrants distributed to other European countries. MISSION ACCOMPLISHED.”

No wonder the man is so hugely popular with Italian voters.

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.

EU’s Top Eurofederalist admits EU wants an empire

Leader of the left-progressive group in the European Parliament Guy Verhofstadt (a.k.a. Verhofshit
) has said that in order to compete with the rest of the world, the European Union must become an “empire.”

Verhofshit, the Phlegm who would be Emperor of Europe
Guy Verhofstadt, the Phlegm who would be Emperor (Picture via Breitbart,)

The leader of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats in Europe (ALDE) told CNN that plans to reform the EU and devolve power from Brussels back to the nation-state proposed by the populist paries that have spring up in member states, and led by Matteo Salvin’s Lega (League) in Italy, Marine le Pen and her Rassemblement National in France and Hungary’s Victor Orban, leader of the Fidesz party would mean that the bloc “will die inside.”

“The world is developing into one not of nation states, but of empires. China is an empire. India is an empire. The US is an empire. We need to create a European Union that is capable of defending our interests,” Mr Verhofstadt said told an interviewer from the far – left American news company who spoke to the Eurocrat his luxurious Brussels office.

Mr Verhofstadt, who is also the European Parliament’s Brexit Coordinator, is an avid supporter of greater federalisation of the European Union. The populist movements, including Alernative for Germany (AfD) and The Sweden Democrats, both of which are making big waves in their domestic electoral systems are also among the parties expected to make big gaines in elections to the toothless European Parliament being held this week. UKIP, the party which led the ‘Brexit’ referendum campaign in the UK are not expected to figure significantly after fragmenting following theior success. A completle new group, The Brexit Party look like topping the polls in the UK where elections have to be held after the Conservative government completely botched the leaving process and failed to take the country out of the UK on 29 March.

Though the populist parties have routinely been labelled neo – fascist, xenophobic and racist by Eurocrats left wing politicians and mainstream media, they are none of those, in fact in casmanyes their policies, except on uncontrolled immigration and surrender of national sovereigny to an unelected committee of bureaucrats in Belgium, are more socialist than shose of mainstream socialist parties.

During a Euronews Raw Politics discussion last week, the former Belgian prime minister compared a proposed United States of Europe to the United States of America, saying: “The United States of Europe is a way to organise a common action on the European level by recognising, by guaranteeing the autonomy of the member states.”

He was talking though his arse of course, none of those are Empires but he is not alone, other Eurocrats have also voiced support for a United States of Europe, including former president of the European Parliament and German socialist politician Martin Schulz who called for its formation by 2025. There have even ben discussions about extending the European Union beyond Europe’s geographical borders. Such grandiose schemes are more reminiscent of the Nazi and Fascist dictatorships and Communist politbureaus of the twentieth century than a, supposedly democratic, free trade organisation.
