Phony War and Splitters

The old post was getting a bit long in the comments.  Just a new place to drop updates in comments

EU itself looking shaky


because the europroles are revolting


Back on Splitter Island we have the lefties ripping themselves apart and the Tories manoeuvring to get a new leader.  None of the prospects fill me with optimism.

    Poland getting desperate that Treasure Island UK stays so that they can continue to export their unemployment problem, claim child support in the UK for alleged kids back in Poland and send back wages and other benefits.

    Also, maybe, it’s getting a bit hard not to see the EU as just the fourth reich without bullets?

    Now desperate Polish politician claims Britain MUST hold a second EU referendum

    A TOP Polish politician has said that Britain should hold a second EU referendum but warned that Brussels has to “radically change” if the UK were to return.

    ooh look! again with the promises of reform (that never happens) as long as our pocket remains to be picked, our freedom to be stomped on, our ability to have another referendum if it doesn’t happen…gone. Fuck off and when you’ve done that…fuck off some more

    MERKEL’S WORST NIGHTMARE: Germany calls for Referendum as ‘people want to be free of EU

    BELEAGUERED Angela Merkel is facing calls for a referendum to free German people of “EU slavery” in the wake of Britain’s sensational decision to cut ties with Brussels.

    Far right figures in Alternative for Germany have promised to call their own vote if they clutch power in country’s general election in autumn next year.

    A party spokesman branded Brussels a “bureaucracy monster”, before adding: “Next year the AfD will enter the German parliament and Dexit will be top on our agenda”.

    They called the vote a Dexit as it stands for a Deutschland exit from the EU.

    Eurosceptism has swept across the continent after the people of Britain backed Brexit in the historic EU referendum on June 23.

    ‘far right’ now means a little bit less than SFA these days. It basically means anybody not happy to run up the red flag at the drop of a hat.

    Juncker: Brexit WASN’T about immigration it was CAMERON’S fault & free movment will go on

    DAVID Cameron has had a dressing down from European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker who angrily dismissed his claims Brexit was due to immigration – and instead declared it was actually the PM’s fault.

    There are calls for Jruncker to resign. His speeches yesterday morning were rather bizarre. More about his badfeelz than actual…you know…political issues to be addressed.

    REVEALED: The EU’s £1TRILLION plans kept secret until AFTER the referendum

    EUROPEAN Union leaders are preparing to unveil a raft of unpopular changes and power grabs in announcements delayed until after Britain’s EU referendum.

    As Britain voted to leave the EU, Brussels leaders begin plans to set out their new military strategy, believed to include plans for a controversial EU army.

    And they will announce how they intend to spend their £1trillion budget for the next seven years this week after ‘delaying’ their proposals until after the referendum.

    They will also present a raft of measures that cover everything from their plans to introduce EU border checks and the accession to the European Convention of Human Rights.

    According to insiders, politicians from the 28 member states have been waiting for months as bureaucrats dragged their heels on settling their draft budget and tabling a number of key proposals.

    The budget proposals, known as the multi-annual financial framework, were shelved at the last minute last month.

    Made me laugh yesterday. BBC gets called out for it’s pathos and hysteria over referendum result

    (my emphasis vVv)

    Owen Paterson, who supported Leave, made the comments after he was questioned over Tory plans for post-Brexit Britain.

    The MP for North Shropshire responded angrily to suggestions the government had not reacted appropriately to the decision to leave the EU.

    Mr Paterson criticised the BBC for its role in the financial struggles seen across the UK since the public voted to leave the European Union.

    He asked Jo Coburn on BBC Daily Politics: “Was it the BBC’s plan to completely overhype the hysteria on this?

    “You’ve moved into Project Hysteria, this relentless hyping of figures when we know major players in the city’s financial institutions took a huge punt on Remain and they got it wrong.

    “So it dropped, now we’re seeing this morning; the bank shares coming up, the FTSE come up, the pound come up and all this massively overhyped and it is totally irresponsible.

    “Because one point I think we should make to Jean-Claude Juncker is that while we are here and until the treaties change, nothing has changed in law.

    “We are full participants… and all the treaties remain in tact.”

    Interviewer commenced some intense lemon sucking at that point

    The people of the UK, particularly of England, have voted to abandon a sinking ship. Can you blame them?

    Merkel, due in part to her hatred of white Germany’s past, unilaterally invited uncontrolled masses of migrants from known terrorist cultures into Europe.

    Governments of Europe were failing to protect the citizens against the inevitable lawlessness of the migrants.

    The Police of Europe were persecuting citizens who tried to protect themselves against migrants when the Police failed to do so.

    The MSM of Europe, under government instructions and on ideological grounds, were deliberately withholding crucial information from the people and blaming “racists” for the migrant crime wave.

    Now that Britain is leaving the European Union they’re moving to insist that English no longer be used in that institution. And the thing is that these sorts of things just don’t work that way. Which language people use is a market. Just as which currency they do, which pub they go to or how fashion changes over the years. These are not things decided by bureaucrats miffed that the world isn’t giving them enough respect. They’re things that we decide ourselves and with language it’s something that we decide every time we open our mouths.

    I say this not because I am the traditional monolingual Englishman (my Russian was once good enough to do business in that language, my Portuguese and French are good enough to navigate through life in those two countries, my Italian would come back with a month or two in country. Not claiming fluency in any language, not even English, but I can cope) but because markets just don’t work in that manner. Language is simply a means of communication – people will use whatever language aids in that. Demanding that people use one or the other simply does not work. As the French actually ought to understand.

    It is this immigration policy of Merkel’s that ultimately engendered the Brexit and will be responsible for the demise of the EU, if that occurs. Although you will hear other explanations, nothing else really comes close. And Merkel is the mother of it all.

    As I sat in Parliament today listening to a tedious and poorly attended debate on the taxation of multinationals, my mind kept wandering to why a person in her position could pursue such a self-destructive policy. It clearly wasn’t popular with her citizens—and why would it be? A certain amount of immigration is necessary for Europe, most of whose countries have declining native populations, but not this. And there were clearly alternatives. The EU and America could have spent their money on refugee camps, most likely to better effect.

    How did this lead to Brexit? I have a theory. Philosophers who are way smarter than me have studied this perplexing priority — that despite leading moral lives we tend to care more about a small problem in our vicinity (my roof is leaking), than a larger problem far away (a mudslide kills hundreds).
    Even more, research shows that the larger the suffering, the less we react. Meaning our heartstrings will be pulled harder by the photo of one starving child – than many children equally in pain. It’s weird but true. We care less when there is more.

    What we are seeing with Brexit is a play on this weird reflex. Because a starlet once lived in London, this compels her to express an oh-so-brave stance against Brexit (even though a week ago she might have thought Brexit was a laxative). Yet, has she said anything about Venezuela, or Syria, or Afghanistan, or the Taliban? I must have missed it.

    My point: it’s no longer a comparison between one starving child and many, it’s a choice between exercising one’s moral superiority in a risk-free environment (let’s go on Twitter and call pro-Brexit people racist or dumb) – and calling out real horror (islamists chucking gays off bridges and buildings).

    This moral cowardice as expressed by the most well-known of earthlings is what led to Brexit. Brexit wasn’t just evidence of a natural concern over one’s well being in the face of rising Islamism amidst the European Union’s lax immigration policy, it’s also a big middle finger (or two “middle” fingers, if you’re British) to those who cannot prioritize injustice, or evil.
