THE EU is trying to squeeze more money out of the UK by delaying the Brexit process over citizen’s rights, Government sources claim.

The European Union already has members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps under sanctions, which Trump on Friday singled out as he detailed a more aggressive approach to Tehran.

Has the Spanish Government scored an own goal, for no matter about the rights and wrongs, the legitimacy or not and the support for the Catalonia Independence referendum by the Spanish actions this could solidify support for the referendum which may or may not have been there originally.

To make matters even worse they instructed or the Spanish courts did to use excessive force to stop the referendum.

Courts do not usually create actions by themselves, but others have to make applications to them, was this the Spanish Government or one or more of their supporters. In bringing these many actions this may be increasing support for the Catalonian independence movement and be bringing it even closer to an affirmative conclusion.

The detention of 15 high-ranking officials and the suspension of the Catalan government, last week by the Spanish government, in order to halt the referendum on independence set for tomorrow appears to have united separatists, federalists, and a significant number of unionists in defense of the vote.

“I have always been opposed to this referendum, because I am a federalist. However, the latest Spanish aggressions against Catalonia in order to humiliate our people is intolerable. That’s the main reason why I have decided to vote, and I will vote “YES” because I do not want to belong to a dictatorship like Turkey any longer. I think that the creation of a new state would give us the chance to build a more fair country and society” said David, a Barcelona citizen.

My family and I have always voted for unionist parties. We like Spain and most of our…

FOR the past few months many have doubted the words which stood out from Theresa May’s Chatham House speech back in January: “No deal is better than a bad deal.”

Croatia, the War, and the Future

One would need to be totally blind, or stupid, not to see the politically orchestrated communications from the pro-EU-leaning leftist Croatian mainstream media and European Commission (EC) President Jean-Claude Juncker’s announcement mid-last week. Croatia’s so-called demographic experts say that Croatia could take at least 50,000 new immigrants in short-term to make up for the potential work-force losses that emerged through mass exodus of people due to unemployment the day before EC’s Juncker in his annual state of the union speech made an announcement regarding “swift inclusion in Europe’s visa-free Schengen area”. The fact that no special reference to the rich and large Croatian diaspora earned no mention as part of Croatia’s demographic “experts” contemplating immigration earns concern and utter disillusionment; after all, Croatia’s government’s mouth is full of calling upon the Croats from the diaspora to return to Croatia! Were this not a lip service only, there would…

For those that voted to Brexit this is a step in the right direction, but there are many other hurdles to pass in the next few month to 2019.

Slowly but surely progress is being made, now the EU need to accept what will be occurring and negotiate more than they are at present.

The Divorce Bill is but one stage, Irish border and EU and UK nationals are others. However, the main other areas need to be discussed being trade, security, financial market dealings and many others, these should be being discussed in tandem with the aforementioned. To not do so will be chaos not only for the UK but also the EU.

Discussions should be by Adults and not, as it appears, children and should be for the benefit of all not just a stated few.

#AceNewsReports – Sept.12: But many legislators branded the bill a government power grab, and vowed to change it before it becomes law……#AceNewsDesk reports

After a debate that stretched past midnight, the House of Commons backed the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill by a vote of 326 to 290……….That means lawmakers approve the bill in principle, but the government will now face attempts to amend it before a final vote later this year………A key plank in the Conservative government’s #Brexit plans, the bill aims to convert thousands of EU laws and regulations into U.K. domestic laws on the day Britain leaves the bloc in March 2019…………Prime Minister Theresa May said the measure provides “certainty and clarity” ahead of the divorce………..#Brexit Secretary David Davis said that without it, the U.K. faces “a chaotic exit from the European Union.”But the opposition says it would give the government dangerous new powers…

The EU is not a country and it is not about to become one. If Europe were a country, German tax dollars would be allocated toward paying down Greece’s debt.

There are so many twists and turns that organisations and people are making over Brexit that at times it is impossible to understand and ascertain where any of them are in relation to an eventual Brexit outcome..

Surely it would be in the best interests of the UK for everyone of us to make clear where we stand.

As this article states both McDonnell and Corbyn both were strongly against joining the EU and retaining in the EU, but were prepared to follow the Labour Party line of staying in the EU, although their visible support was hard to see. Surely they should have stood by their long held principles.

They are not on their own as Cameron tried to dupe the UK population into believing he would negotiate the best deal for the UK or would walk away, which would be his basis to put to the country in the referendum and we can all see he was not successful in achieving a best deal and therefore would never have walked away.

Ukip with Farage were always to come out of the EU completely, while the Lib Dems were always for staying no matter what the deal.

Currently the Conservatives would appear to wish to leave the EU, but cannot decide on what deal, while Labour appear to want to come out, but at the sametime stay in for the parts they like.

In the last election the country were apparently not with UKip or the Lib Dems, but more for the undecided Labour and to some extent the possible out Tories.

So we are now negotiating with the EU, but on what basis. There is still a mishmash of detail from the Tories, while the official line from the EU is to punish the UK for daring to exercise its right to leave the EU.

While in the EU various people and the 27 other EU members are unsure what they also want. They want the best deal for themselves rather than a combined approach from each of the 27.

From my point of view how the 27 are behaving is how the EU is and was for the 28, when it should have been with one voice, The EU bureaucrats again appear to be in it for themselves, well they are politicians or similar and so are only there for their own power, which is my view of most, if not all politicians.

Will it be when the UK leaves the EU, for that was the will of the people, a good result for the UK, well that is for the future and so will how the EU continues, if it so does.

Currently the EU is not working for the majority of the populations within the UK, but is for its officials, so you can see why its officials do not wish any changes which could rocks their current lifestyles, but then again this could be said for the political elite in any country.

These negotiations need to be continuing and the bombastic and intransigent approach from both sides needs to change. I may be biased, but I do feel this is more so for the EU negotiators in the allout requirement to punish the UK as an example to other counties who may have an inclination to leave or some other manner of change for the EU. If they do not then I do feel the EU will not continue, as it may not anyway, but if they do achieve a reasonable settlement for the UK then the EU may have more of a survival chance than at present.
