  • Brexit bottom line: EU worked for the elite, but not for the British people

    Which is why the elite don't see what the problem is To listen to the howling and wailing from the political and media elites, you’d think the British people were forcing their government to close all the hospitals and burn all the schools down. The reaction to Britain’s exit from the European Union has been that over-the-top hysterical. The British Empire survived for many centuries before anyone ever conceived of the EU – which was only established in 1993 – and I think it can probably do just fine once again not being a member of it. But you’d never...
  • Carry on trading, beg German car bosses (Brexit)

    Daily Mail ^ | 01:13 GMT, 27 June 2016 | By John Stevens, Europe Correspondent For The Daily Mail
    German manufacturers last night demanded that Britain be allowed to continue trading with the EU without any barriers. The car-making industry said punishing Britain makes no sense – and it called on the German chancellor to give the UK a favourable trade deal. Eurosceptics have repeatedly argued it is not in the EU’s interests to bring in tariffs as the UK imports more from Europe than it exports, and any weakening of the British economy would also have a ripple effect on Europe. Matthias Wissmann, of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA), said: ‘Even if many “experts” are...

    Is it any wonder that citizens of one of the greatest and strongest nations in human history would recoil from an international order that was proving mainly that it could enrich an elite without seeming to lift a finger to preserve the nation’s core values and traditions — the very things that had made it great and strong? Is it any wonder that citizens of other great countries are —wondering what loyalty they owe to that same elite? And so we launch yet another phase in human history, where what’s old — nations pursuing their own interests — is new...

    BREXIT THE MOVIE is a feature-length documentary film to inspire as many people as possible to vote to LEAVE the EU in the June 23rd referendum. BREXIT THE MOVIE spells out the danger of staying part of the EU. Is it safe to give a remote government beyond our control the power to make laws? Is it safe to tie ourselves to countries which are close to financial ruin, drifting towards scary political extremism, and suffering long-term, self-inflicted economic decline? BREXIT THE MOVIE shows a side of the EU they don't want us to see: the sprawling self-serving bureaucracy, the...

    An MP has revealed the petition calling for a second referendum on Britain’s membership of the EU is being investigated for fraudulent signatures added. After it was revealed the plea, which has garnered the support of over three million people, was in fact set up by a Leave campaigner before the referendum, reports surfaced of thousands of signatories to it potentially being fake. Data on the parliamentary petitions website shows over 39,000 of those who have added their names to it come from Vatican City; the city state’s total population is just 800. The website also purports that 23,000 signatories...

Yes, had he not angered so many UK voters with his "back of the line (queue)" crack if they left, the outcome might have been different. Once again this narcissist wannabe king of the world was rebuked in Great Britain with his insults and threats if Great Britain left the European Union. This guy is delusional!

    One of the main takeaways from the EU Referendum is the chasm which exists between the British electorate and the people who purport to represent them in Westminster. To get an idea of what this looks like, you need only glance at the list of MPs who opposed Brexit, which includes nearly every single Labour member of the House of Commons, and compare it to the electoral map of UK on the day after the vote. Even if the hatred of ordinary, working class voters expressed by the BBC is muted in the monologues of Labour politicians, the antipathy for...

Speaking in Berlin following a meeting of the six founding member states of the EU, French foreign minister Jean-Marc Ayrault told the UK not to play a “cat and mouse” game following the historic Brexit vote. He said: “Of course a new prime minister must be appointed, that will probably require a few days but this is quite urgent.

    Over the last few months, the tourism industry of Costa Rica has enjoyed an increase of British and European visitors thanks to the inauguration of two flights from London, but officials fear that this joy will be diminished by Brexit. The people of the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, which means that European tourists can no longer easily travel to London to catch a flight to Costa Rica. At a press conference following the Brexit referendum, the president of Costa Rica’s National Chamber of Tourism (Spanish acronym: CANATUR) mentioned that the new situation is dispiriting since our...

    LONDON — British voters didn’t just shock the world and the financial markets by voting to leave the European Union hours ago: They also ignored President Barack Obama, handed Hillary Clinton a potential economic burden and injected new energy into the populist currents roiling politics on both sides of the Atlantic. The surprise 52 percent - 48 percent result in favor of leaving the European Union — which British networks projected just before 5 a.m. local time — came after a tense night of vote-counting throughout the United Kingdom. British Prime Minister David Cameron later announced he's resigning, citing a...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's vote to leave the European Union is a triumph for Nigel Farage, the abrasive anti-immigration politician who tapped into a deep well of popular anger that rivals failed to understand. On a night that seemed to start badly for the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), with the last opinion polls predicting defeat for the Leave camp in Thursday's referendum, Farage said at first it looked like Remain would win. But it ended with victory for him and on Friday morning he declared jubilantly that the vote for a British exit from the EU, or...

Only Donald Trump had backed the campaign to leave Republican strategists had panned Trump’s decision to travel to the UK in the midst of campaign turmoil, and in the wake of his blistering attack on Hillary Clinton earlier this week.

    Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II thinks European courts that protect Islamist hate preachers “denigrate” Britain and has demanded her dinner guests “Give me THREE good reasons” to remain inside the European Union (EU). The loaded challenge has been widely interpreted as an expression of Euroscepticism since the Royal biographer Robert Lacey made the revelation in a blog post in the Daily Beast. The EU and the European Court of Human Rights are known for their history of protecting the “rights” of extremists and blocking deportations. Last night Breitbart London revealed that Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem...

Brussels would be able to speed up development of its common security policy, foreign policy and anti-terrorism powers because Britain is one of the main opponents to further European integration, he said.

The escort force arguably suffered the most, declining to a modern low of just 13 Type 23 frigates and six new Type 45 destroyers. And now the escort force has shrunk even further.

    Conservative MP at the centre of a love triangle said he wished he had never hired the blonde assistant with whom he had an affair because of the “grief” it had caused. Steve Double, 49, a former pastor, told The Telegraph he had dumped his lover, who is 23-years his junior, by telephone last week after news of the relationship began to circulate.
  • The knowledge economy is a myth. We don’t need more universities to feed it

    Governments around the world believe that to remain competitive in a global economy they must become smarter. In an attempt to boost its knowledge intensiveness, the UK government has just launched a plan to overhaul the university sector. It aims to transform universities by creating many more of them. The hope is that this will increase the number of people with degrees, and the UK will be a more competitive economy. The idea of the knowledge economy is appealing. The only problem is it is largely a myth. Developed western economies such as the UK and the US are not...

    The BBC has warned English football fans not to dress as crusaders when attending the Euro 2016 tournament this summer as they might cause offence to Muslims. The advice comes via their ‘iWonder’ website, aimed at a younger audience, which asks such pressing questions as “Was Shakespeare a feminist?” and “How green is my commute?” Posing the question: “Is it wrong to dress as a crusader for an England match?” the answer appears to be a resounding “yes”. “Crusaders were the perpetrators of violent attacks across Europe and the Middle East on Muslims, Jews and pagans,” the website intones, suggesting...

    Here is the headline from the standard.co.uk: A haul of weapons and more than £30,000 in cash were seized by police in a major drugs bust this morning. I thought the U.S. was being converted to a bunch of wimps.  This is pathetic.  Any normal 15 year old could come up with better weapons than this collection from the kitchen drawer and utility closet.  A golf club or Cricket bat would be more formidable.  A tip of the hat to Just an Earth-Bound Misfit, I. The Metropolitan Police must be hard pressed to justify their jobs.  No wonder the...
  • Dutch Populist Geert Wilders: If Britain Leaves the EU, the Netherlands Will Follow Suit

    The European Union has had a bad couple of years. There were the major crises in southern European states, especially in Greece; support for the EU has eroded; and the Dutch voted against an EU treaty with Ukraine last month. That's bad enough for the federalists in Brussels, but it may get even worse in the month ahead. In June, British voters will decide whether their country remains in the EU or will cease to be a member state. Although most recent polls show the Remain camp in the lead, they realize they can't afford to make any unforced errors....

    Canada once again backed Israel at the UN this week when it voted against the World Health Organization’s (WHO) resolution singling out only Israel for “mental, physical and environmental health” rights abuse. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s Liberal government joined the Israel, the United States, Australia, Paraguay, Guatemala, Micronesia and Papua New Guinea as the only countries to vote against the resolution, which was co-sponsored by the Arab Group of States and the Palestinian delegation. …

    Former Mayor of London Ken Livingstone has been fired from his radio show, in response to anti-Semitic comments made last month. Livingstone has already been suspended from the Labour Party, where he was until recently a senior policymaker, after claiming in an interview that Adolf Hitler was a Zionist, and appearing to back some of the Nazi dictator’s earlier policies before he “went mad.” “Let’s remember when Hitler won his election in 1932, his policy then was that Jews should be moved to Israel. He was supporting Zionism before he went mad and ended up killing six million Jews,” Livingstone...
