EU on alert as report warns of bankruptcies across bloc – Ireland at risk


This is the real reason the EU did and do not want the UK to leave the EU.

We were and still are until 31 December 2020 a major contributor to the EU, eventually our money will be sorely missed.

That is when they have fritted away the supposed Brexit penalty, sorry the leaving divorce bill payment of an assumed amount of £39 billion.

If we do leave with a deal then £39 billion ,ay keep the EU afloat for a month or two.

But if we leave with No Deal, would they receive a Penny.

The EU desperately need the UK or should I say our money if they have any hope of survival.

GW: Basically the EUSSR is spending more money than [[[they]]] have got – always have – the accounts are unaudited – & unfortunately most of the money has gone into various blackholes. A good bit of it goes on keeping Brussels Bureaucrats in an opulent lifestyle while the tax payers struggle.  I talked with a colleague who was in Brussels on Brexit evening & he said that the whole place was rather depressing.  The architecture was especially unattractive but opulent & that very nearby there was a slum like district – cheek to jowl with the EU Parliament monstrosity????  He assumed that was where the ”staff” were housed – skivvies who support the various Bureaucratic Bar Stewards higher up the food chain who have their own wineries etc –  Verhofstadt & Co – I can’t verify because my trip there was just to the bijoux tourist bits.

Brexit news: Next countries to quit ‘EU cult’ REVEALED as Brussels to face more struggle | UK | News | Express.co.uk


The  has been facing threats of further withdrawal from the bloc as several member countries swung towards the eurosceptic right in the past couple of years. Ms Fordwich suggested the Netherlands and Sweden could soon follow  Britain if the UK were to secure a beneficial withdrawal and trade deal after March 29. Speaking to RT America, the business expert said: “It’s like a sort of club, or a cult. You can’t have one person leave and take what they want and do better because what would happen to all your members?

“The other members would leave and do the same thing. So you have to prevent this.”

 eurosceptic party Sweden Democrats (SW) has issued a dire warning to Brussels, suggesting the Scandinavian country could very well leave the bloc unless eurocrats accept to make substantial changes to its core institutions. A shocking poll in 2017 suggested more than half of  would prefer to quit the EU.

Ms Fordwich continued: “There were rumours of Nexit, the Dutch leaving and The Netherlands, and Swexit after the right swing in Sweden.

“That’s the fear. The Dutch and the Swedish are two they fear might want to go.”

EU membership has many benefits, but economic growth is not one of them – new findings : The Conversation


From Winston Churchill in the 1940s to the Nobel Peace Prize Committee in our era, peace and prosperity have always been put forward as the two main goals of European integration. The EU founding fathers saw the European project as a way of taming nationalist passions by serving mutual commercial interests: a common political and economic entity that would guarantee both peace and economic progress.

In his famous United States of Europe speech in Zürich on September 19, 1946, Churchill argued that “the sovereign remedy” to the plight of post-war Europe was “to recreate the European family, or as much of it as we can, and to provide it with a structure under which it can dwell in peace, in safety, and in freedom”.

How many Muslim women actually wear the burka in the UK? It’s probably less than a few thousand – The i – Weekend Reads #55


Given the reaction of some parts of the media, one could be forgiven for assuming that Europe and the rest of the Western world has become besieged by burqa-clad women. The “fear” is now so rife that empty bus seats in Norway were mistaken for a group of women wearing the burqa.

Meanwhile, in a much derided stunt in Australia, far right leader Pauline Hanson wore a full-face covering burqa into the senate chamber. Hanson’s aim was to prohibit Muslim women from covering their faces and to get the burqa banned in the country.

To look at it, the burqa is simply a veil which covers the body and face – and yet it is also sometimes associated with oppression, terrorism, and extreme religious beliefs. Some burqas only have a mesh screen for the wearer to see through. The niqab, on the other hand, is a face veil worn with a headscarf which leaves the eyes uncovered, while the hijab is a scarf which covers the head and neck. In Europe, the term “burqa” is used to refer to women who wear robes to cover the body and face, but their eyes may be left uncovered, as seen in the main image of this article.

The Netherlands welcomes Trump in his own words//Quand les Néerlandais présentent les Pays-Bas à Donald Trump


Observer of the Near East

  • Français:

Le prix de la meilleure réaction à l’investiture de Donald Trump est attribué aux Pays-Bas.
Prouvant une bonne fois pour toutes que les Néerlandais ont de l’humour, la chaîne nop3 a diffusé ce dimanche dans son émission  Zondag met Lubachune vidéo qui devrait « parler » à Donald Trump, selon ses propres mots. Ainsi, imitant avec brio la voix pompeuse du milliardaire, le présentateur a entrepris de présenter les Pays-Bas au nouveau président américain.
Imitant sa manière de parler, Arjen Lubach a également repris les idées chères à Donald Trump. Par exemple, on apprend que les Pays-Bas ont construit un mur gigantesque pour se protéger des eaux venant du Mexique. Le pays regorge également de politiciens handicapés à propos desquels on peut se moquer.

  • English:

If there’s one Trump-inspired satire you should absolutely watch, it’s the one at the end of this post. Created by Dutch satirical TV show Zondag earlier…

GW: This is such a sad end for someone who had their life ruined by paedos. These perps should be brought ”to book” for what they did and we should NEVER accept that sex by adults with vulnerable children is OK. As we can see from this case it is not something the victims can just ”get over”. Are you listening Ms Goddard?
