Juncker raises prospect of emergency Brexit summit next week | Politics | The Guardian

Jean-Claude Juncker has raised the prospect of an emergency summit of EU leaders next week to decide on a Brexit delay, blaming ongoing chaos in Theresa May’s cabinet.

The European commission president said a letter from May requesting an extension to article 50, delaying the UK’s exit beyond 29 March, had not arrived overnight as expected.

Juncker sends DESPERATE letter to MPs in last-ditch attempt to win Brexit deal support

This is about tim, but is it too late.

All along the EU have been of the opinion that the UK will not leave the EU, buoyed up by the unrelentless campaign by remainers to overthrow the 2016 Referendum result.

The Remainers have and will not ever respect the referendum result and are clearly no respecters of democracy.

If, as is more than likely, Mays deal is not supported then No Deal is the only alternative. In no way should there be any approach to remain in the EU.

If there is another referendum, which I feel there should not be then the only two options should be No Deal or if possible a renegotiated Mays deal, with the proviso that should it not be possible to renegotiate then the fallback is no deal.

If another referendum is forthcoming and remain is one of the questions then I see no point in voting as the leave vote will be split, giving an advantage to those who do not respect democracy, the remainers.

Should it come to pass that we remain in the EU, then I see no point in ever voting again, as if a referendum can not be respected why should any other vote be respected.

As to lies being made, I would says lies were made by both leave and remain and in effect lies are made in every election, for do we really believe what is stated in any Manifesto.


On Monday, a letter from Mr Juncker is expected to try to reassure MPs the Irish backstop would keep the UK in a temporary customs union if it needed to be triggered. Mr Juncker and Mrs May are currently exchanging letters ahead of Tuesday’s vote to try to determine what can be done to help the deal pass through Parliament. One option that has been discussed is the possibility of the European Commission making additional pledges to conclude a trade deal with the UK by the end of 2021 in a hope to ease Tory fears the backstop could become a permanent arrangement.

GW: That EU Irish Backstop fillip has now been rumbled hence the ”desperate letter”

EU May Shrink to Point Where it No Longer Has Major States – Juncker – Sputnik International

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker is due to visit the United States on July 25, in a bid to add to improving EU-US relations, which were tarnished after President Donald Trump slapped import duties on steel and 10 percent duties on aluminum.

Speaking at the Carlos de Amberes Foundation in Madrid, European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker warned that against the backdrop of a growing global population, Europe may finally “shrink” to the threshold when there will be no major states there.

Describing Europe as “the closest continent,” Juncker predicted that no EU member will make up more than one percent of the global population within the next few years.

Merkel’s minister BACKS Theresa May’s Brexit plan in shock EU intervention | UK | News |

Mr Seehofer appeared to back Theresa May as he blasted the European Commission’s chief Brexit negotiator Michel Barnier for declaring Britain will be excluded from counter-terrorism initiatives across the bloc once the UK leaves the EU.

In a penned letter to the European Commission, the first of its kind from a senior European politician, Mr Seehofer criticised the EU for its hard line in negotiations, warning their stance would prevent Bruseels from reaching an “unlimited” security deal once Britain leaves the bloc.

This comes after Mrs May was rejected by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker and other leaders during Brexit talks, when she insisted the commission’s plans to restrict cross-border security measures would risk lives.

Mr Barnier said the UK would be out of key crime-fighting and anti-terrorism initiatives, including Europol, the EU’s police intelligence agency, the Schengen information system, which enables members countries to transmit shared intel on criminals and missing people and the European Criminal Records Information System.

Croatia Drowning Its Diaspora In EU Financial Problems

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…
