    BRUSSELS are likely to buckle to Britain’s key Brexit demands, due to uproar among EU countries over fears of an economic decline in the case of a no deal departure. The EU27 will give in to Prime Minister Theresa May’s demands to make the Irish border backstop a legally temporary measure. The key British demand is the only obstacle holding up Mrs May’s deal from passing in Parliament. The DUP and dozens of Brexiteers have vowed to vote down the deal this month unless changes are made to the backstop.

    BRUSSELS has warned the remaining 27 European Union countries that they must urgently explain how their airline licenses comply with the bloc’s rules on ownership or face losing their rights to fly after Brexit. In a letter sent last week, Violeta Bulc, the EU commissioner responsible for transport, revealed not every national government had set out detailed plans on how airlines would meet “ownership and control requirements in all possible scenarios” of Brexit.

    The police said ha that 50-thousand protested last week, but this week they say the number was up to 84-thousand. The media locally is admitting that today's protests were predominately peaceful in France. The Interior Minister for the government of President Emmanuel Macron Christophe Castaner heaped praise on the police, working long hours without being fully compensated for their overtime, receiving one-time partial payments in the hundreds of dollars for thousands of dollars worth of work in the last two months of 2018. Some eight thousand protesters estimated in Paris. Other statistics included 6700 for the protest called in the...

  • Macron Govt: Yellow Vests Have Destroyed 60 Percent of Speed Cameras

    01/10/2019 7:52:33 PM PST · by ameribbean expat · 29 replies
    Many Yellow Vests, whose protests grew from an objection to a “green” tax on fuel — now abandoned — which was seen as falling disproportionately on the non-metropolitan working class, see the country’s thousands of speed cameras as part of a “racket” designed to generate extra revenue for the state rather than preserving life, especially since the speed limit was dropped to 50 miles per hour on many roads in 2018. They did indeed raise over a billion euros in fines in 2017, according to the Court of Auditors, and were expected to raise significantly more in 2019.

    Members of the "yellow vests" protest movement have vandalised almost 60% of France's entire speed camera network, the interior minister has said. Christophe Castaner said the wilful damage was a threat to road safety and put lives in danger. The protest movement began over fuel tax increases, and saw motorists block roads and motorway toll booths. Some protesters feel speed cameras are solely a revenue-generating measure which takes money from the poor.

    The New York Times is quick to the typeset to explain how Brussels is desperately offended because President Trump and Secretary Pompeo have lowered the importance of the EU.

(snip) -- BRUSSELS — The Trump administration downgraded the diplomatic status of the European Union’s delegation to the United States last year without making a formal announcement or informing the bloc about the change, a European official said on Tuesday.
