    Operation Black Vote has released what it calls a "hard-hitting" poster urging black and ethnic minority voters to take part in the EU referendum. It features "an elderly Asian British woman being berated by an aggressive thug", according to Operation Black Vote's description. The campaign says it is meant to show everyone has the same voting power.Magnus Djaba, chief executive of Saatchi and Saatchi London, the ad agency which created the poster, said: "This is a message about democracy, not a message about race. Whichever community you're from, it hits home."

    More than 300 prominent historians, including Simon Schama and Niall Ferguson, are warning voters that if they choose to leave the European Union on 23 June they will condemn Britain to irrelevance. In a letter to the Guardian, the academics and writers argue that the referendum offers a chance to underscore the “irreplaceable role” Britain has played, and should continue to play, in Europe’s history. “As historians of Britain and of Europe, we believe that Britain has had in the past, and will have in the future, an irreplaceable role to play in Europe,” the letter says. “On 23 June,...

    The UK Prime Minister David Cameron on Sunday said that Turkey would only be able to join the European Union “in about the year 3000,” hitting back at claims that Britain would lose the power to vote over Turkey’s membership if his country leaves the bloc. ‘Vote Leave,’ a cross-party campaign, is urging British citizens to vote to leave the EU all together in a June 23 referendum. The ‘Leave’ campaign predicts that 142,000 Turkish citizens could head to the UK every year if Ankara joins the EU. But for Cameron, who wishes for the UK to stay in the...

    Austrians have headed to the polle to elect a new president in run-of elections. Early results by one polling institute gave far-right candidate Norbert Hofer a marginal lead at almost 51 percent. Norbert Hofer was projected to become Austria's first far-right president with 50.9 per cent of the votes, according to pollsters of the ARGE Wahlen group say. His lead over Green Party rival Alexander van der Bellen remains too narrow to call a definite winner. Former Green party chief van der Bellen was projected to gain 49.1 per cent of the ballots. ARGE said they were fairly certain that...

    The European Union expressed concern Wednesday about the rule of law in Poland and warned that it will take action by next week unless Warsaw makes progress on fixing the problem. The EU's executive Commission has been holding informal talks with Warsaw since November amid concerns about the conservative government's respect for Poland's Constitutional Court and the way judges are appointed. The Commission said if the tribunal "is prevented from fully ensuring an effective constitutional review, there can be no effective scrutiny of compliance with fundamental rights of legislative acts." Warsaw has until Monday to respond.

The leaked documents are being used, properly in some cases, to portray the treaty as a giant handout to Big Business cronies. Just as importantly, the almost 250 pages of text also confirm once again that the controversial new “trade” regime aims to merge the regulatory regimes of the United States and the EU under unaccountable transnational institutions. In short, the threats to...

The plan is part of the European Commission’s plan to overhaul its current asylum rules that neared collapse last year after more than a million refugees and migrants flooded across E.U. borders, the Financial Times reported Tuesday. The reshuffle is aimed at alleviating the strain on frontline nations, including Greece and Italy, that have grappled to absorb the heavy incursion of migrants. Officials who saw the proposal in advance said the fine would...

    The feud between the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European side of Greece's troika of creditors is old news. However, Wikileaks' publication of a dialogue between key IMF players suggests that we are approaching something of a hazardous endgame. Ever since the first Greek 'bailout' program was signed, in May 2010, the IMF has been violating its own "primary directive": the obligation not to fund insolvent governments. As a result, the IMF's leadership has been facing a revolt from its staff members who demand an exit strategy arguing that, if the EU continues to obstruct the debt relief necessary...

The final outcome of an “advisory” referendum showed a “no” vote of 61 per cent and a turnout of 32 per cent – just above the 30 per cent threshold needed for the result to be valid.

    Erdogan has boasted that he is proud of boldly blackmailing EU leaders into paying him protection money. Erdogan's threats were almost criminally sinister: "... the EU will be confronted with more than a dead boy on the shores of Turkey. There will be 10,000 or 15,000. How will you deal with that?" According to the agreement, 80 million Turkish citizens will have visa-free access to the European Union. The nightmare scenario for a desperate EU is that no matter how much it bows to extortionist demands from Turkey, the migrant crisis will continue to grow. Even if Turkey closes down...

    London, Paris, Stockholm and Berlin are among the European cities featuring some 900 'no-go areas' of large immigrant populations, Hungary's government has claimed. On a new website aimed at drumming up opposition to the EU's proposed migrant distribution scheme, the country claimed authorities in the regions had 'no control' over residents. It also claimed that in these areas 'with a high number of immigrants', the 'norms of the host society barely prevail,' the site said.

    Predominantly Catholic nation Slovenia 'choking under the surge' of Muslim refugees. After Brussels terrorist attacks and with the European Union estimating that 3 million more migrants will arrive in Europe this year, the patience of Slovenians, traditionally known for tolerance, is wearing thin.

    The physical damage was easy to see. The attackers' bombs shattered an airport terminal and a subway station. But when one of the European Union's top leaders expressed his sympathies to the men, women and children hurt and killed in Brussels on Tuesday morning, he hinted that the three attackers purportedly acting on behalf of the extremist group Islamic State had caused even greater damage. "These attacks have hit Brussels today, Paris yesterday," said European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker. "But it is Europe as a whole that has been targeted." When the European Union was created in 1993, one of...

    Brussels wounded It’s time for votes of no-confidence. It’s time for the governments of Britain, France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and more to fall. I’m not talking about violent revolution. There are mechanisms for the peaceful replacement of governments in most European nations at times when the existing government is seen widely to be inadequate for the task at hand. It is time to put those mechanisms to use. The existing governments are responsible for policies that have turned Europe into a war zone, and that war is just beginning. The political and media elites have failed Europe and the...
