Presidents, prime ministers, congresspersons and parliamentarians worldwide regularly negate the democratic will of their nation’s voters by refusing to support legitimate election results. Strangely, their treasonous actions continue without serious reprisal or punishment by the voter. This emboldens them. The reality of votes cast and “democracy” past does not does bode well for the people of the United Kingdom, their future as a nation or their hopeful return to sovereignty once called, “Brexit.”

While the name has not changed; the definition certainly has.

It has become all too easy for democracy to be turned on its head and popular nationalist mandates, referenda and elections negated via instant political hypocrisy by leaders who show their true colours only after the public vote. So it has been within the two-and-a-half year unraveling of the UK Brexit referendum of 2016 that saw the subsequent negotiations now provide the Brexit voter with only three possibilities. All are a loss for Britain.

One possibility, Brexit, is the result of Prime Minister, Theresa May’s negotiations- the “deal”- and currently exists in name only. Like the PM herself, the original concept of Brexit may soon lie in the dust of an upcoming UK Parliament floor vote in exactly the same manner as the failed attempt by the Greeks barely three years ago. One must remember that Greece on June 27, 2015 once voted to leave the EU as well and to renegotiate its EU existence as well in their own “Grexit” referendum. Thanks to their own set of underhanded and treasonous politicians, this did not go well for Greece. Looking at the Greek result, and understanding divisive UK Conservative Party control that exists in the hearts of PMs on both sides of the House of Commons, this new parliamentary vote is not looking good for Britain.

The Fleeting Illusion of Election Night Victory.

Similar to Greece, the current state of Brexit leaves it now before the parliament – not the voters- as a poor Hobson’s choice. In a week, this faux- Brexit as it is currently- the spawn of an utter, and possibly deliberate, failure in the negotiations- will be decided. Here in the UK blame can be laid at the feet of just one national politician, who, like Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipris, first appeared to their desperate country dressed in the mantle of “Hope” and “Change.” Too quickly Tsipris was stripped bare, following Syriza’s staggering 2015 national election victory and his subsequent tepid and inept attempt to renegotiate with Brussels about its destructive debt structure and leave the EU. His public disrobing then- like that of UK Prime Minister Theresa May via her “deal” – would thus reveal the life-long scars of their true national allegiance gnawed into their backs by the lust of their masters in Brussels.

On Dec. 11, 2018, the most historic vote in modern UK history will take place. At stake is Britain. Like Greece, the whispered coercions to UK Parliament members by the arrogant likes of European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker and President of the European Council Donald Tusk and their EU members have begun. These are the men who have already beaten back the democratic attempts of Greece and Catalonia while affecting recent populist socialist movements in national elections in Italy and in Spain.

The farcical justifications from UK politicians have begun anew, trying desperately to convince Britons that this failure of negotiations and political will is actually good for them, their futures and for the UK. These de rigueur protestations are growing louder day-by-day as the public is told again and again, “This is the best we can do.”

Is it?

As must be remembered, David Cameron, a Tory, called for the national Brexit vote in order, not to free the UK from the clutches of EU unelected dominance, but instead to further certify and strengthen the Conservative Party’s ongoing destruction of the UK’s social services, privatization of national assets , privatization of Britain’s healthcare system (the NHS), and increased austerity for UK families. All this, while an increasingly impoverished Britain saw their parliament approve tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, benefit reductions for workers, increased retirement age, and more funding for US/Israeli inspired wars under diktat from Brussels via Washington.

Ironically, like a cluster bomb of white phosphorous over a Syrian village, Cameron’s Brexit vote blew up spectacularly in his face. Two decades of ongoing political submission to the EU by the Cons and “new” labour had them arrogantly misreading the minds of the UK voter.

So on that incredible night, it happened. Prime Minister David Cameron… the Cons… New Labour…The Lib- Dems… and even the UK Labour Party itself, were shocked to their core when the unthinkable nightmare that could never happen, did happen . Brexit had passed by popular vote!

David Cameron has been in hiding ever since.

After Brexit passed the same set of naïve UK voters assumed, strangely, that Brexit would be finalized in their national interest as advertised. This belief had failed to read Article 50- the provisos for leaving the EU- since, as much as it was mentioned, it was very rarely linked or referenced by a quotation in any of the media punditry. However, an article published four days after the night Brexit passed, “ A Brexit Lesson In Greek: Hopes and Votes Dashed on Parliamentary Floors,” provided anyone thus reading Article 50, which is only eight pages long and double-spaced, the info to see clearly that this never before used EU by-law would be the only route to a UK exit. Further, Article 50 showed that Brussels would control the outcome of exit negotiations along with the other twenty-seven member nations and that effectively Ms May and her Tories would be playing this game using the EU’s ball and rules, while going one-on-twenty-seven during the negotiations.

In the aftermath of Brexit, the real game began in earnest. The stakes: bigger than ever.

Forgotten are the hypocritical defections of political expediency that saw Boris Johnson and then Home Secretary Theresa May who were, until that very moment, both vociferously and very publicly against the intent of Brexit. Suddenly they claimed to be pro- Brexit in their quest to sleep in Cameron’s now vacant bed at No. 10 Downing Street. Boris strategically dropped out to hopefully see, Ms May, fall on her sword- a bit sooner.

So, the plucky PM was left to convince the UK public, daily, as the negotiations moved on, that “Brexit means Brexit!” A UK media that is as pro-EU as their PM chimed in to help her sell distortions of proffered success at the negotiating table, while the rise of “old” Labour, directed by Jeremy Corbyn, exposed her “soft” Brexit negotiations for the litany of failures that ultimately equaled the “deal” that was strangely still called “Brexit.”

Too few, however, examined this reality once these political Chameleons changed their colours just as soon as the very first results shockingly came in from Manchester in the wee hours of the morning on that seemingly hopeful night so long ago: June 23, 2016. For thus would begin a quiet, years-long defection of many more MPs than merely these two opportunists.

What the British people also failed to realize was that they and their Brexit victory would also be faced with additional adversaries beyond the EU members: those from within their own government. From newly appointed PM May to Boris Johnson, from the Conservative Party to the New Labour sellouts within the Labour Party and the Friends of Israel, the quiet internal political movement against Brexit began. As the House of Lords picked up their phones, too, for very quiet private chats within House of Commons, their minions in the British press began their work as well.

The Kingdom’s New Waterloo?

Two weeks ago, Ms May announced the details of her very much anticipated “deal.” This was the culmination of her “tough” negotiating style with the European Union negotiators on Brexit.

The definition of pro-Brexit supporters in Ms May’s Conservative Party has amounted to two possible choices in result: the “hard Brexit” which completely severs ties with the EU. This would separate British law from European law on topics ranging from trade to migration to product regulation. The other strategy, a “soft Brexit,” would maintain some of these ties without a complete separation from the EU’s common market.

The details that Ms May released on Wednesday are without a doubt a very soft Brexit- one that pays no homage to the original vote. This is because the deal has a provision that would still keep the UK in the EU Customs Union (the system setting common trade rules for all EU members) indefinitely. This is an outrageous inclusion and betrayal of a real Brexit by Ms May since this one topic was the most contentious in the debate during the ongoing negotiations because the Customs Union is the tie to the EU that the original Brexit vote specifically sought to terminate.

Worse, this deal would have the UK parliament forfeit its current direct rights to EU law and courts in the advent of problems within the Customs Union after the deal. However, Britains are supposed to believe the protestations, now, that the EU will promise to provide smooth sailing from now on.

The issue of the “Back-stop” has Ireland furious as well. This is designed to avoid a crisis over Northern Ireland, which is part of the UK but wants to retain an open border with neighboring EU member Ireland. Imposing border controls between Ireland and Northern Ireland could threaten the Good Friday Agreement, the deal that ended serious violence in Northern Ireland in 1999. Unlike Ms May, Ireland does not trust the EU. Due to the Back Stop and the Customs Union, the EU will be able to force its will on the UK, as France has already said it will do over fishing rights, but the UK will not be able to cry foul, because Ms May will have given up the nation’s EU commercial rights of any kind over grievances.

Ms May’s failure was so obvious that cabinet defections- new ones- began immediately including Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab, who said, he cannot in good conscience” support the deal. His was followed by Work and Pensions secretary, Esther McVey, who added, ” We have gone from no deal is better than a bad deal, to any deal is better than no deal.”

When, on Thursday, PM May went to Parliament to defend her deal, she was met by howls of laughter as she attempted to show confidence before the whole House of Commons when defending her indefensible deal. Next, Tory Jacob Rees-Mogg, who has grandstanded throughout as an MP from the hard Brexit camp, submitted a letter of no confidence in May’s leadership — which may see her soon join David Cameron in hiding.

As it stands before parliament next Tues., the choice is a Hard Brexit “No” vote or “Yes” to Ms May’s excuses for this deal. This choice also amounts to whether she will see her hand the keys to No. 10 over to the nightmare of Brussels, Jeremy Corbyn.

Yes or no, both, at this minute, are being sold as the only two choices, with EU President Junker helping this coercion by insisting that there will be no new negotiations and “this deal is the ‘best deal for Britain,” and that, “This is the only deal possible. So, if the House (of Commons) says no, we would have no deal.”
Both sides predict gloom and doom for Britain, and here, they may both be correct. This all the more highlights the failure and the treason of Ms May’s deal.

The last option is a new Brexit referendum. After a successful “No” vote. “The prospects of a second referendum have advanced considerably,” wrote the ultra-conservative Financial Times’s Robert Shrimsley, who added. “Parliament will not stomach a no-deal exit. So the hardliners risk provoking the crisis that kills their dream, by smoothing the path to a second referendum.” This, of course, ignores Junker’s threats against further negotiations and the very questionable outcome from the voters who are tired of elections and this Brexit but will likely, then, have a new leader in the Commons.

As it stands, only one possible outcome, the “Hard Brexit,” is in keeping with the spirit of the Brexit that was voted for long ago. But if the fate of Greece is followed by EU vengeance on the UK in retribution, the Brits will be hit hard, fast and often. Considering the Tories, not surprisingly, have no plan for this, the pound will likely dive and prices soar in Venezuela style fashion. The deal, however, is a clear victory for the EUP and a new referendum as no guaranteed result except to continue to fracture Britain with yet another vote. All choices, if these are choices, are very bad for Britain.

The question that should be most important to all British citizens, the one that must draw their attention to this Brexit finale, is no longer: “Brexit: ‘Yes?’ or ‘No?’” The question must now be:

“How many UK politicians will, a week from Wednesday, sell their vote, their soul and their country to EU?”

Their vote will answer this. The British people are in the hands of their politicians; the same collective UK cadre that has, for the past two decades, routinely beholden the UK to an unelected EU central body of monetary, military and sovereign control.

What could go wrong?

The Eight Hundred Pound Corbyn in the Room.

Throughout the negotiations, there has at all times been a specter looming in the back of the minds of the Brexit negotiators and particularly in the black souls of Junker and Tusk. Arguably there is a much bigger reason for the failed Brexit negotiations and the final desperate measures of Ms May and her ilk to pass their “deal.” This reason, a voice of reason long discounted like the UK people themselves, now stands larger than ever. One diminutive little man. He stands for what they do not. This politician is pro-UK, pro-worker, pro-Labour, pro- NHS, pro-union, and pro- Palestine. He is also anti-privatization, anti- EU, anti-war, anti-nuclear war, anti-global warming. Worse, he is a devote socialist and a rare politician who publicly holds Israel accountable for its crimes!

Yes. Behind all that has gone on with destroying Brexit, there is another nightmare, one that is the Kryptonite that Brussels is terrified of to its marrow. His name is Jeremy Corbyn.

However, Brussels is not scared of just the man himself nor his ideals and sincerity to his cause. No. What EU and EUP politicians, those that support all things Zionist, fear the most is his leadership: Unapologetic, populist, socialist, leadership. That is rising.

Corbyn is what the United Kingdom once was fifty years ago. During that too-long forgotten time, the workers and their vote forced political will in favour of their country and their families. Politicians feared their vote and Britain slowly reversed the social degradation that was the legacy of the industrial revolution and the engines of capitalism and capitalists run amuck. Corbyn is, and always has been, Old Labour; not the bastardized form that slowly infected parliament under the moniker of “New” Labour over the past twenty years. What hucksters like Tony Blair and the Labour Party elite were, in fact, offering as “new” was really just a quasi Conservative Party light platform that slowly morphed over the years into what the Conservative Party had once been itself under Thatcher and John Major. This left the British voter with the choices of only the Tories or the Conservative Party subsets such as the ineffective Lib-Dems, plus a few non-influential nationalist parties like DUP in Ireland and Plaid Cymru in Wales.

Hence, election-after-election, voters continued to see their country gutted by virtue of their own vote due to a lack of true choice or opposition candidates. The ongoing results were privatization, social service cuts, and imposed austerity on the UK majority that saw UK poverty levels skyrocket, as shown by last week’ scathing UN report. Instead, Britain became a haven for the wealthy and their massive tax dodging schemes- as shown by the Panama Papers- as poverty increased under more and more White Hall approved austerity. All pro- EU factions of all UK parties within the Parliament, however, were universal in their excuses and false justifications for their ongoing gutting of what remained of British socialism… election-after-election.

Except one.

Corbyn is real Labour. He is an unabashed supporter of, and a throwback to, a time when the UK was an economic powerhouse, but also had enough for everyone- by law! By all accounts and his consistent thirty-five-year track record as an MP, he is genuine. Minimized by his Labour colleagues and the UK press during decades of Labour Party decline, he has now emerged as the voice of reason, a champion of the worker, formidable in debate with his Tory adversaries and unflappable under the torrent of daily media and cross-bench White Hall criticism.

Few remember, as they should, that Corbyn, as leader of the Labour Party, has already survived a very contentious attempt by his own party members and the Friends of Israel to oust him as the leader. His success against this coup strongly shows that he has very powerful and connected political interests behind him: those which have spearheaded his ascent and believe in socialist reforms. They and Corbyn understand the true state and direction of current Britain; about this Brexit deal and about Ms May’s faux negotiations and her treason. They don’t like any of it.

To the troika (EU Commission, EU Central Bank and IMF) Corbyn is a much bigger threat than the failed attempts at sovereignty in Catalonia, Italy, Spain, Greece or Britain. Corbyn may prove to be- if he becomes PM- real leadership: leadership worth following. His sincere path to a return to an old-time Labour platform that returns control to the UK worker rather than elite and the powerful business interests is anathema to the capitalist forces ruling the EU. His consistent leadership reminds his growing group of followers, both in Britain and worldwide, of the good old days when the people did matter to their government and when there was enough for everyone- by law! He is a very dangerous man; for his is a message, not just for the UK but one being heard as a rallying cry in many capitalist dominated countries worldwide.

If Corbyn comes to power, his will- finally- be the first successful attempt at the return to a socialist Britain; the first non- military defeat for the EU and Capitalist forces worldwide. If he becomes PM, which seems increasingly likely, Corbyn’s example will be closely followed by other socialist national leaders in their own countries- sincerely or not (see: Bernie Sanders) – where the 1% have all the wealth, all the services and all the control over an increasingly impoverished world. Anti-populist forces like the EU have so far globally stopped all forms of democratic expression including those elections that were –temporarily – successful, such as Syria, Yemen, Egypt, Honduras, and Ukraine. So, Brexit and Corbyn must be defeated.

While Brexit might be the unintended spark for a desperate world to watch glow, it is Corbyn who holds in his palm a very large box of matches.

The Mathematics of Treason: Tithing for Politicians.

PM May will not be going quietly. With her Prime Minister-ship, Brexit, EU control over the UK, Tory Control over parliament, and certification of the national rise of socialism at stake, her job is to cajole and lie-again- to an election weary Britain, one that has already suffered the distortions of the Scottish independence referendum ( SNP), the ill-fated Brexit referendum, and then a national election- the one that saw May and her Cons club cling to power only by buying Irish DUP support for UK 1.5 Billion pounds. All this in thirty-three months.

The cycle has begun anew.

This time the stakes could not be higher. Ms May has already shown her desperation by offering bribes in the form of peerages to PM’s willing to vacate their current public anti-deal opposition. This week, Downing Street announced that John Hayes, a former MP and Transport Minister, who proclaims to be a staunch Euro-sceptic, would suddenly become Sir John in a rare honor. Earlier this week furious young Tory MPs claimed that now older Euro-sceptics had refused to put in the No Confidence letters against Theresa May because they were hoping for a peerage of their own Thus, Best for Britain champion Virendra Sharma said, “It seems like Downing Street will do anything to get their bad Brexit deal through.”

But it is Prime Minister Theresa May’s words that Britons should take notice of, particularly two all revealing sentences, that together show the strange mind and divisive, if not delusional, rational used to pass this bad deal. Beyond the oft-debunked claim by the PM that, “Brexit is Brexit,” she would now, this week, have the MPs and the British public believe that:

“This is the best deal we could get,” and, “We have to follow the will of the voter and pass [this] Brexit.”

The arrogance of these two statements is as incongruent as it is revealing.

Here, Ms. May would actually have the original Brexit voter believe that she has done such a good job negotiating this deal that her current Brexit- which it is not – must now be passed by parliament in order to honor the will of the Brexit voter- which it does not: the same voters that would never have voted for Brexit in the form she has turned it into. Such is the delusion and arrogance of Ms May.

Ridiculous? Maybe not.

Ms May must rely on getting her votes this time from parliament, not the people. She needs 326 votes. Here lies the real threat to Britain.

There are 650 seats in House of Common so 326 is the magic majority. In terms of purported party loyalty, the Cons sit with 315 seats and an only coalition majority. But Labour’s opposition and 257 seats are fractured at best between true labour and faux labour members. The Scottish National Party is third with 35 followed by the Liberal-Democrats with 9. The remainder of 31 seats is split between nationalist parties like Ian Pasley’s Irish DUP, (10 seats) which have come out against the deal publicly, but has already shown it can be bought for the right price (1.5 Billion pounds), as in the last election of 2016.

The UK public must fear the Cons continued allegiance to Brussels. Yes, many have expressed outrage and insisted that they will not vote for this deal. However, with the Cons not having yet been successfully punished at the polls, it is surely a matter of time before the first defector- after a very lengthy and public set of excuses and self-serving rationale- joins the many other existing Tory yes votes. When that happens the floodgates will open and the defections will pour in for their just rewards to come. So, it is safe to assume that the Cons numbers will swell in support by the time of next Wednesday’s vote.

While Corbyn tries to hold ranks in order to achieve the Trifecta of defeating the deal, Ms May’s political future and becoming PM in one blow, there is, however, no chance of party unity on this vote. Like the Cons, it is just a matter of time and the next few days before the first public Labour defections and excuses- likely the same ones- “force” that slippery slope towards UK sovereignty to get suddenly steeper.

It is not likely that the minor parties will vote for the deal as they are ultra-nationalist, such as Plaid Cymru, since a ”yes” vote will see their platforms as utter hypocrisy and therefore doomed. If PM May and here supporters win, it will be the Conservative Party that will be convicted of the crime.

Ms May and the EU can start the count with a firm 90 seats, however. When it comes to UK parliamentary hypocrisy, the leader by far is the self-proclaimed Friends of Israel who are indeed just that. While voting for all things Israel and demonizing all reasonable and factual discussion of Britain’s burgeoning war machine or Israel’s ongoing genocide in Gaza so, they really hate Corbyn. It is fair to say that most will do as they are told and sell out Britain to central control and Zionist EU interests.

At this juncture, with a final parliamentary vote only days away, it should behoove the British voter to also look more closely at the failed attempt by Greece to leave the EU and the politicians then, who, in a matter of weeks, also turned tail on their country to also answer a call from Brussels. Brexit, as it stands now before Parliament, is a terrible deal: a deal that is worse than staying in the EU and a deal that will certainly punish the UK- as was the final result in Greece- for its attempt at sovereignty and populist democratic will. For all this, just like in Greece, is anathema to Brussels and just like in Greece the evil of Brussels does not just stop resistance; it puts it down and then punishes such indiscretions economically and brutally afterwards. Such it is today in Greece, as Alex Tsipras, PM in name only, goes hat in hand selling his countries airports, beaches, islands and infrastructure for pennies on the Euro merely to service existing loans from Brussels in order to beg for more.

Greece was not a case study in leadership. It was a case study in political treason. Will it be repeated this coming Tuesday!

Regardless of the eventual total, what should be a very easy defeat for this treasonous “deal” being sold as a Brexit fait accomplit, like Greece, the final tally may well be a disastrous defeat for Britain. It is likely that all of the UK will be following the final total of the vote. However, the total they should be counting is that of those MPs that turn on them and their country in the lead-up to Tuesday. For, if this deal is passed, it is these faces who must be remembered as the men and women who decided to thumb their nose at the British people and their country. And this they will surely do unless public pressure and outrage- which has not shown itself in decades- is made obvious to them all. Now.

Count Down to Tuesday…

The UK’s Telegraph reports 100 Tory MPs have now indicated they will vote the deal down in Parliament. But will they… after the days to come?

After Sunday’s EU unanimous vote, Ms May strangely offered to debate her deal for the first time, with Jeremy Corbyn. However, at the same time as the whole of Britain pricked-up their ears at this exciting news, Ms May backed out. Likely because she knows every one of her excuses will be cannon fodder for the Labour leader- and his rise in power.

The Express Newspaper polled 3154 British adults about their opinion on the latest Brexit developments and no one is happy. Four in ten (42 per cent) of Britons oppose the deal, whilst only 19 per cent are in favor of it.

The remaining 39 per cent answered, “don’t know”. Here, the UK media has done its job via disinformation, thus giving the confidence to those PMs who do vote for the deal, that all will eventually be forgotten, regardless, by the next election.

Three of the many events from recent days should tell the UK voter just how important a real Brexit, one that does extricate Britain from EU control, really is and illustrate how much Brussels is worried about the outcome of this vote.

One: EU Parliament passed Theresa May’s deal in 38 minutes.

Nothing spells winning at the negotiating table like enthusiasm from only one side and this was the message on Sunday. With the last sticking point being the centuries-long contention between Spain and the UK regarding Gibraltar- one so explosive that the UK keeps a large military presence there today- PM May rolled over quickly on that too, leading Conservative MP, Andrew Bridgen to say, “It appears that there is no-one the prime minister will not betray to achieve her sell-out deal.”

It is safe to that Junker, Tusk and their twenty-seven EU brethren members understood the UK Prime Minister’s negotiating style in exactly the same way.

38 minutes? Guess who won these negotiations?

Two: Italy.

Down south, this past week in Italy the newly elected Italian government, led by populist Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte, and ethno-centrist Interior Minister Matteo Salvini, released their proposed annual national budget. Within twenty-four hours, the EU, Tusk and Junker stated clearly that they were not satisfied with Italy’s sovereign decision on how to spend its own national coffers. The EU demanded that Italy revise the budget to suit their unelected whims.

Three: Greece.

Britains should consider this arbitrary bullying of Italy and of the UK. Then they should consider the sad EU imposed current condition of Greece. Next, they might dwell on the failed outcomes of previous elections within the nearby EU nations, and how similar movements were defeated in their nation as well. Last, they must pay closest of attention to what is actually in the souls of their own politicians and what they truly support.

If not these examples, then the UK citizens would do well to look at the state of subjugation, austerity and further poverty in all these countries and their own: the same countries who also saw, so recently, their hopes so quickly destroyed- like Brexit- by the false-flag allegiance of their elected politicians.

Then, Britons can collectively bend over-like their politicians- and begin to get used to taking it… themselves!

    Italy’s fiscal irresponsibility IS the EU’s business. Half of the German and nearly all of the big French banks will collapse if Italy defaults on its debt.

  2. The Democratic Unionist Party is not ‘Irish’ or nationalist. It is a party of loyal Ulster supporters of Northern Ireland’s place in the United Kingdom.

    It is not run by ‘Ian Pasley’; Dr Ian Paisley (sic), later Lord Bannside, founded it but ceased to be its leader in 2008 and died in 2014.

  4. This article by Brett Redmayne is certainly right re the horrific sell-out by the Greek government of Tsipras the other year, that has left the Greek citizenry in enduring political despair … the betrayal of Greek voters indeed a model for UK betrayal of Brexit voters

    But Redmayne is likely very mistaken in the adulation of Jeremy Corbyn as the ‘genuine real deal’ for British people

    Ample evidence points to Corbyn as Trojan horse sell-out, as covered by UK researcher Aangirfan on her blogs, the most recent of which was just vapourised by Google in their censorship insanity

    Jeremy Corbyn was a childhood neighbour of the Rothschilds in Wiltshire; with Jeremy’s father David Corbyn working for ultra-powerful Victor Rothschild on secret UK gov scientific projects during World War 2

    Jeremy Corbyn is tied to child violation scandals & child-crime convicted individuals including Corbyn’s Constituency Agent; Corbyn tragically ignoring multiple earnest complaints from child abuse victims & whistleblowers over years, whilst “child abuse rings were operating within all 12 of the borough’s children’s homes” in Corbyn’s district … not very decent of him

    And of course Corbyn significantly cucked to the Israel lobby in their demands for purge of the Labour party alleged ‘anti-semites’

    The Trojan Horse ‘fake opposition’, or fake ‘advocate for the people’, is a very classic game of the Powers That Be, and sadly Corbyn is likely yet one more fake ‘hero’

  5. My question is: how anti-EU is Corbyn exactly? I know he was Euro-skeptic back in the 80s, when he was under the influence of Tony Benn. But now? He seems to have maintained a very studied silence on this issue in public recently. To be sure, it makes sense that Corby would oppose the EU, since their ‘Growth & Stability Pact’ would render illegal most of the reforms he has proposed (such as re-nationalizing British Rail). But I would feel a lot better about him if I really knew where he stood.

  6. One must remember that Greece on June 27, 2015 once voted to leave the EU as well and to renegotiate its EU existence as well in their own “Grexit” referendum.

    I don’t actually remember Greece ever voting to “leave the EU.” I followed the link provided, but it said nothing of the kind either. I do remember an ‘OXI’ vote in 2015 on the Troika’s bailout package; but as I recall, it said nothing about actually leaving the EU. And once the Troika rejected the result of that referendum, those fakers Tsipris and Varoufakis just knuckled under and accepted their country’s defeat.

    Who can forget the 1970s, when Britain was so economically powerful that it was overtaken by Italy?

  8. This politician [Jeremy Corbyn] is pro-UK

    Is that the UK as it used to be, home of the indigenous British? Or the UK as it will be when the Labour-Conservative policy of mass immigration has made the indigenous British a powerless minority in, most likely, a Muslim country?

    They cannot support this Brexit deal.

    The will withdraw their coalition with the Tories and bring this government down should May find a way to pass her Brexit deal.

    The DUP said this after being allowed to read the actual Attorney General’s advice on N. Ireland and Brexit which clearly said that the UK could remain stuck in the backstop indefinitely and without choice.

    Italy’s fiscal irresponsibility IS the EU’s business. Half of the German and nearly all of the big French banks will collapse if Italy defaults on its debt.

    OK, the German and French banks made some bad loans to Italy, so the next question is who pays for the bailout.

    Following the US Sub-Prime precedent, it’s going to be the German and French public, with the bank directors keeping their bonuses and the loans covered at full dollar (euro).

    Who can forget the 1970s, when Britain was so economically powerful that it was overtaken by Italy?

    It’s true that the early 1970′s were an economic disaster area for the UK with crazy militant trades unions, factory strikes, a collapsing pound sterling (exchange control) and 25% inflation.

    However 2018 isn’t 1973. UK militant trade unionism is long gone and miner’s leaders no longer make secret visits to Moscow. Corbyn is in a new world of militant Neoliberalism with globalists doing the wrecking.

  18. The author appears to have only very limited knowledge of UK politics.

    Corbyn may be an authentic anti-EU Marxist, but most of his MPS are Globalist quislings and he has to keep quiet about his actual beliefs these days. A Corbyn government would not take us out of the EU; his MPs would not stand for it. Most of his voters might be anti-EU but most Labour activists are also Globalists.

    Boris Johnson has been consistently anti-EU since at least 2015 and should not be compared to Theresa May, a Remainer.

    While Boris may have opportunist tendencies, there is no reason not to see Jacob Rees-Mogg’s views as genuine; if anything he has been more consistent than Corbyn.

    Edit: There are also major errors re Greece, which never tried to leave the EU. The Greeks saw leaving as inconceivable.

  19. @Digital Samizdat

    Yes, Greece’s unwillingness to consider leaving the EU fatally weakened her position. The Greek people wanted to have their debts forgiven, but stay in the EU. They never voted to leave.

    I disagree with this naysaying. We take this deal. We wait until a point in the next few years when the EU is looking particularly weak and vulnerable and then we get a better one, and so on and so on. That is exactly how the bureaucratic apparatus of the EU trapped us within their ever-tightening death grip anyway.

    Furthermore, by taking this deal we destroy the EU’s strongest argument – its show of inevitability. Without that, it is simply an anti-national bureaucracy staffed by ludicrous pricks.

    Anyway, how on earth is this worse than staying in the EU? Please no tired analogies of “seat at the top table” or other such rubbish, as if that is how the EU makes any decisions at all and as if that seat means that such decisions would be substantially more in Britain’s interests…has there ever been a more facile argument for giving up a country’s sovereignty?

    My theory is, give “capitalism” and financial interests enough time, they will consume any democracy. Meaning: the wealth flows upwards, giving the top class opportunity to influence politics and the media, further improving their situation v.s. the rest, resulting in ever stronger position – until they hold all the power. Controlling the media and therefore the narrative, capable to destroy any and all opposition. Ministers and members of parliaments, most bought and paid for one way or the other. Thankfully, the 1% or rather the 0.1% don’t always agree so the picture can be a bit blurred.

    You can guess what country inspired this “theory” of mine. The second on the list is actually the U.K. If a real socialist becomes the prime minister of the U.K. I will be very surprised. But Brexit is a black swan like they say in the financial sector, and they tend to disrupt even the best of theories. Perhaps Corbin is genuine and will become prime minister! I am not holding my breath.

    However, if he is a real socialist like the article claims. And he becomes prime minister of the U.K the situation will get really interesting. Not only from the EU side but more importantly from U.K. best friend – the U.S. Uncle Sam will not be happy about this development and doesn’t hesitate to crush “bad ideas” he doesn’t like.

    Case in point – Ireland’s financial crisis in 2009;

    After massive expansion and spectacular housing bubble the Irish banks were in deep trouble early into the crisis. The EU, ECB and the IMF (troika?) met with the Irish government to discuss solutions. From memory – the question was how to save the Irish banks? They were close to agreement that bondholders and even lenders to the Irish banks should take a “haircut” and the debt load should be cut down to manageable levels so the banks could survive (perhaps Michael Hudson style if you will). One short phone call from the U.S Secretary of the treasury then – Timothy Geithner – to the troika-Irish meeting ended these plans. He said: there will be no haircut! That was the end of it. Ireland survived but it’s reasonable to assume this “guideline” paved the road for the Greece debacle.

    I believe Mr. Geithner spoke on behalf of the financial power controlling – more or less-our hemisphere. So if the good old socialist Corbin comes to power in the U.K. and intends to really change something and thereby set examples for other nations – he is taking this power head on. I think in case of “no deal” the U.K. will have it’s back against the wall and it’s bargaining position against the EU will depend a LOT on U.S. response. With socialist in power there will be no meaningful support from the U.S. the powers that be will to their best to destroy Corbin as soon as possible.

    I hope I am wrong.

    My right wing friends can’t understand the biggest issue of our times is class war. This article mentions the “Panama papers” where great many corporations and wealthy individuals (even politicians) in my country were exposed. They run their profits through offshore tax havens while using public infrastructure (paid for by taxpayers) to make their money. It’s estimated that wealth amounting to 1,5 times our GDP is stored in these accounts!

    There is absolutely no way to get it through my right wing friends thick skull that off-shore accounts are tax frauds. Resulting in they paying higher taxes off their wages because the big corporations and the rich don’t pay anything. Nope. They simply hate taxes (even if they get plenty back in services) and therefore all taxes are bad. Ergo tax evasions by the 1% are fine – socialism or immigrants must be the root of our problems. MIGA!

    Come to think of it – few of them would survive the “law of the jungle” they so much desire. And none of them would survive the “law of the jungle” if the rules are stacked against them. Still, all their political energy is aimed against the ideas and people that struggle against such reality.

  25. ” This is because the deal has a provision that would still keep the UK in the EU Customs Union (the system setting common trade rules for all EU members) indefinitely. This is an outrageous inclusion and betrayal of a real Brexit by Ms May since this one topic was the most contentious in the debate during the ongoing negotiations because the Customs Union is the tie to the EU that the original Brexit vote specifically sought to terminate. ”

    Here I stopped reading, maybe later more.
    Nonsense.

    What USA MSM told in the USA about what ordinary British people said, those who wanted to leave the EU, I do not know, one of the most often heard reasons was immigration, especially from E European countries, the EU ‘free movement of people’.
    “Real’ Britons refusing to live in Poland.
    EP member Verhofstadt so desperate that he asked on CNN help by Trump to keep this ‘one of the four EU freedoms’.
    This free movement of course was meant to destroy the nation states

    What Boris Johnson said, many things he said were true, stupid EU interference for example with products made in Britain, for the home market, (he mentioned forty labels in one piece of clothing), no opportunity to seek trade without EU interference.
    There was irritation about EU interference ‘they even make rules about vacuum cleaners’, and, already long ago, closure, EU rules, of village petrol pumps that had been there since the first cars appeared in Britain, too dangerous.
    In France nonsensical EU rules are simply ignored, such as countryside private sewer installations.

    But the idea that GB could leave, even without Brussels obstruction, the customs union, just politicians, and other nitwits in economy, could have such ideas.
    Figures are just in my head, too lazy to check.
    But British export to what remains of the EU, some € 60 billion, French export to GB, same order of magnitude, German export to GB, far over 100 billion.
    Did anyone imagine that Merkel could afford closing down a not negligible part of Bayern car industry, at he same time Bayern being the Land most opposed to Merkel, immigration ?

    Britons, again in my opinion, voted to leave because of immigration, inside EU immigration.
    What GB will do with Marrakech, I do not know.

    Marrakech reminds me of many measures that were ready to be implemented when the reason to make these measures no longer existed.
    Such as Dutch job guarantees when enterprises merged, these became law when when the merger idiocy was over.
    The negative aspects of immigration now are clear to many in the countries with the imagined flesh pots, one way or another authorities will be obliged to stop immigration, but at that very moment migration rules, not legally binding, are presented.

    As a Belgian political commentator said on Belgian tv ‘no communication is possible between French politicians and French yellow coat demonstrators, they live in completely different worlds’.
    These different worlds began, to pinpoint a year, in 2005, when the negative referenda about the EU were ignored. As Farrage reminded after the Brexit referendum, in EP, you said ‘they do not know what they’re doing’
    But now Macron and his cronies do not know what to do, now that police sympathises with yellow coat demonstrators.

    For me THE interesting question remains ‘how was it possible that the Renaissance cultures manoevred themselves into the present mess ?’.

    The expression class war is often used without realising what the issue is, same with tax evasion.
    The rich of course consume more, however, there is a limit to what one can consume, it takes time to squander money.
    So the end of the class war may make the rich poor, but alas the poor hardly richer.

    About tax evasion, some economist, do not remember his name, did not read the article attentively, analysed wealth in the world, and concluded that eight % of this wealth had originated in evading taxes.
    Over what period this evasion had taken place, do not remember this economist had reached a conclusion, but anyone understands that ending tax evasion will not make all poor rich.

    There is quite another aspect of class war, evading taxes, wealth inequality, that is quite worrying: the political power money can yield.

Nevertheless, practically all “democratic” countries continue to delegate all legislative powers to elected “representatives.” These are nothing more than consenting hostages of those with the real power, who control and at the same time hide behind those “representatives.” The more this becomes obvious, the lower the calibre of the people willing to be used in this manner – hence, the current crop of mental gnomes and opportunist shills in European politics.

    Once Article 50 was invoked the game was over. All the trump cards were on the EU side. Now we know that, even assuming Britain could muster a competent team to plan and negotiate for Brexit that all the work of proving up the case and negotiating or preparing the ground has to be done over years leading up to the triggering of Article 50. And that’s assuming that recent events leave you believing that the once great Britain is fit to be a sovereign nation without adult supervision.

    As it is one has to hope that Britain will not be constrained by the total humbug which says that a 51 per cent vote of those choosing to vote in that very un British thing, a referendum, is some sort of reason for not giving effect to a more up to date and better informed view.

[but the privateers will use the government itself and mass media to defeat such platforms and to suppress labor with new laws and domestic armed warfare]. Why would a member of the British masses allow [the Oligarch elite and the[ir] powerful business and foreign political interests restrain democracy and waste the victims of privately owned automation revolution? .. ..

    [Corbyn's Labour platform challenges ] privatized capitalist because the PCs use the British government to keep imprisoned in propaganda and suppressed in opportunity, the masses. The privateers made wealthy by their monopolies, are using their resources to maintain rule making and enforcement control (via the government) over the masses; such privateers have looted the government, and taken by privatization a vast array of economic monopolies that once belonged to the government. If the British government survives, the Privateers (monopoly thieves) will continue to use the government to replace humanity, in favor of corporate owned Robots and super capable algorithms.

    Corbyn’s threat to use government to represent the masses and to suppress or reduce asymmetric power and wealth, and to provide sufficient for everyone extends to, and alerts the masses in every capitalist dominated place in the world.

Then we have the flirting with East-European mobsters to pull them in the EU sphere corrupting top EU bureaucrats. Then we have all of south Europe being extremely unstable, including France, both its populations and its economy.

    It’s sad to see the British government doesn’t see the disaster ahead, any price would be cheaper then future forced EU integration. And especially at this point, the EU is so unstable, that they can’t go to war on the UK without also committing A kamikaze attack.

I do agree with you… that Corbyn has yet to be tested for sincerity and effectiveness as PM, but he will likely get his chance and only then will we and the Brits find out for sure. The main point I was hoping to make was that: due to the perceived threat of Labour socialist reform under Corbyn, he has been an ulterior motive in the negotiations and another reason that the EU wants PM May to get her deal passed.

However, in the mind of those in the DUP Ian Paisley will always be the patron saint of the party, since it was he who lead it to respectability as an opposition party and his tough negotiations were integral in the peace between north and south and the Brits. If you’ve ever been to a DUP meeting, you would see, even today, how venerated he still is and how decisions being made are done with respect for his platform and what he once and still does stand for. So, despite this being inaccurate technically at this time, the DUP will always be Ian Paisley’s DUP. (IMHO)

    Read enough to see that the article has many errors of fact and perception. It is bad enough to suspect *propaganda*, but Brett is clearly not at that level.

    An important point that you hint at is that the Brits were violently and manipulatively forced to accept mass immigration for many years.

    Yet strangely, to say anything about it only became acceptable when some numbers of the immigrants were fellow europeans from within the EU, and most having some compatibility with existing ethnicity and previous culture.

    Even people living far away notice such forced false consciousness.

    As for Corbyn, he is nothing like the old left of old Labour. He tries to convey that image, it is a lie.

    He may not be Blairite-Zio New Labour, and received some influence from the more heavily Marxist old Labour figures, but he is very much a creature of the post-worst-of-1968 and dirty hippy new left, Frankfurt School and all that crap, doubt that he has actually read much of it, but he has internalised it through his formal and political education.

    Soros is nothing more or less than a modern day Bela Kun – the Soros of Hungary’ during his day, and George is simply carrying on the ancient tradition.

    From the article:

    Ms May has already shown her desperation by offering bribes in the form of peerages to PM’s willing to vacate their current public anti-deal opposition. This week, Downing Street announced that John Hayes, a former MP and Transport Minister, who proclaims to be a staunch Euro-sceptic, would suddenly become Sir John in a rare honor.

    I thought only the queen could bestow that “honor”.

    What exactly does a peerage mean in real terms? That they’re permitted to rape little boys as often as the rest of the British aristocracy/media pedophiles?

    England has slavishly served its Jewish supremacist masters for over a hundred years. Since it waged a genocidal war on South Africa to steal the gold and diamonds on behalf of ((De Beers)).

    It continued its notorious treachery as it waged wars of envy on Germany. Particularly when Germany was engaged in an heroic war to slay the ((commie demon)) that had seized ‘Russia by the hair of it’s head’, and then went on to enslave half of Europe, all thanks to the sniveling, blood-stained treachery of Perfidious Albion.

    So now, with memories of Dutch families – starved in death camps by the thousands, and German and Polish girls raped in the streets by Red Army orcs, the chickens have come home to roost in Merry Olde. Where now it’s the British school children who’re raped wholesale by orcs.

    L’chaim!

    I suspect that the number one motivation for the British working and middle classes to demand an exit from the Jewish supremacists at the EU / ECB, is so they don’t have to sit by and watch with horror as Pakistanis and others engage in the wholesale gang rape of their children, protected by the pedophiles in their government and ((media)).

    Jeremy Corbyn has mounted a forceful defence of immigration from the EU and elsewhere before his party conference speech, causing a fresh split in his shadow cabinet. The Labour leader is expected to use his speech to promise a Labour government will not “sow division” by promising to cut immigration.

    I thought only the queen could bestow that “honor”.

    The reigning monarch, king or queen, is presented with an honours list created by the Government (in reality, the ruling party). The reigning monarch then bestows those honours on the individuals on the list. The monarch has virtually no choice in the matter.

    England has slavishly served its Jewish supremacist masters for over a hundred years.

    Well over three hundred, actually. It was the Judas, Cromwell, accepting his 30 pieces of silver to commit regicide that began the descent into hell. That was followed by the “Dutch” bankers funding William of Orange’s invasion of Britain and his treasonous British supporters. The creation of the privately owned Bank of England soon followed. Britain has been in thrall ever since.

    That’s my recollection as well. If I remember, the term ‘Grexit’ was coined by some financial analyst who was just making a recommendation, not a prediction. I never remember Syriza publicly supporting the idea. I even remember the question of Grexit being put to them directly, only to have Tsipris shoot down the suggestion. That was before the negotiations had even begun, and that was when I knew that Greece was f*cked.

  62. @Simon in London

    Thank you for your comment regarding Grexit. Since the article was about political hypocrisy and its threat to the upcoming vote, I did not dive into the lengthy history of what became known as Grexit, but which I use as an accurate parallel. Since several comments have rightfully exposed my brevity on this, here’s a bit more info. that bolsters my point.

    Syriza came to power as a majority power after winning the national election on a Euro-skeptic platform and then attaining a parliamentary majority by effecting a coalition with another Euro-skeptic party. Tsiras immediately watered things down by only insisting on debt restructuring at a time when, again, the EU was holding this over Greece’s head and when they were already broke. Then the bank’s were closed which outraged the country.

    Tsipras and Co. then start to renegotiate with only the threat of leaving as cards to play in Brussels and they act tough. And they lose.

    But Syriza is in a bind because they promised to bring home a win, not a staggering lose, so all this heads to a vote in parliament. Accept the EU’s negotiations/terms or, if not Greece would be on its own bankruptcy, debt default, Drachma, or otherwise.

    Will of the people was 50/50 at best. Yes, there were polls that were highly misleading.Any assertion that public opinion was stacked against leaving belie other polls to the contrary as well as the Greek’s memory of the recent bank closings at home and the year before in Cypress.

    So, on vote day the Euro-skeptics did have a majority and if they had voted according to the platform that elected them, all would have voted not to accept the “deal” and this would have triggered the country- or so was said- leaving; hence the moniker: Grexit.

    This was definitely the in minds of Tsipras &Co., since they had previously been to see Putin looking for alternate funding rather than that of the EU.

    In synopsis, after a lengthy public charade, Greek MPs took a poorly negotiated deal from the EU- by vote- only because of the political and national hypocrisy on the part of their Parliament; a vote that doomed their country to economic servitude.

    That was Grexit. Sure sounds like Brexit.

    I hope my analogy is a bit clearer now. Thanks to all who weighed in on this.

    Yes, it’s true: Varoufakis resigned in protest after the negotiations failed. But tell me: where was Professor Game-Theory before and during the negotiations? Couldn’t he figure out from the start that, without the Grexit option, Greece had absolutely no leverage at all? (No ‘BATNA,’ as the experts would say: Best Alternative To a Negotiated Agreement.) And didn’t Prof. Game-Theory promptly move on to the UK right after resigning his job as Greek FM to campaign against Brexit? … which is to say, in order to campaign in favor of the EU — the very institution which had destroyed his own country?

    What happened in Greece, and what Tsipras tried, is not very clear, not all machinations have been made public.
    The Treaty of Maastricht does not allow euro countries to support each other.
    Greece could not pay its euro debts, according to Maastricht it should have left the euro zone.
    Alas, Merkel had other ideas ‘this is the end of the EU’, and Greece was bailed out.
    Reality was that Brussels took over the government in Athene.
    Tsipras tried to re introduce the drachme, but nobody was prepared to lend him money.
    As Greek cash literally ran out, food shortages, medicines lacking, Tsipras bowed to the inevitable: the end of Greece as an independent country.
    Varoufakis is one of the great economists of our time, alas what he wants is politically impossible, creating a real euro monetary union, with internal income transfer.
    But Merkel, it seems, does not want this, then she’s no longer empress of the European continent, but just a provincial civil servant of Brussels.
    On top of this, Europeans do not exist, Germans do not want to pay for Greek lack of management.

    Greece exists since the middle of the 19 century.
    Five times, when it still had the drachme, it could not meet its foreign obligations.
    As long as it had the drachme, any time it solved its own problems.
    GB never wanted the euro, Greece got it, at the vote just Dutch ministerof finance Zalm voted against Greece getting the euro.

    After it got the euro W European banks lent Greece money galore, rich Greeks transferred some € 80 billion to Swiss banks.
    So much money went into Switserland that the country had to make the Swiss franc more expensive.
    The banks that lent Greece the money either did never read Maastricht or expected a bail out, despite Maastricht.
    Soros hired prime time on German tv to explain the Germans their obligations, if WWII was mentioned, I do not know.
    So mainly German and Dutch taxpayers saved W European banks.

    The whole problem began with a country never able to rule itself properly, tax evasion the great national sport, who wanted Greece to have the euro, do not know, possibly Brussels, the euro is a political project.
    Then banks and rich Greeks saw their chance, Brussels too, Greece now is under Brussels rule.
    Terrible unemployment under young people, sea ports and airports sold to foreign investors.

    Then Draghi appears, maximum inflation of the euro two percent, Draghi makes money in order to buy worthless bonds of S countries, at the same time lowering the value of the Greek, and other debts, with two percent per year.
    Cancelling debts, politically impossible, making the debt disappear by 2% inflation per year, no problem.

    So, in a nutshell, the EU euro Greece ECB success story, of which rich Greeks, EU, and W European banks reaped the fruits, and the taxpayers footed, and still foot, the bills.

    The Night of the Long Knives was when Hitler made an agreement with the Zionist Oligarchs and agreed to murder several thousand of the SA Revolutionist leaders (including Ernst Rahm) in order to ensure the continuance of the International Banker Control over Germany. Hitler betrayed the very people who helped him to power, in order tp receive the ultimate gift, from Marshall Hindenburg, the Post of Chancellor (political leader), of Germany.

    Having failed to seize power in 1923, (a phony attempt which led the phony Nazi, Hitler, to be arrested and placed in a phony Prison (actually a 5 Star Hotel), where he prepared and awaited further orders. The Nazis were steered away from Revolution. And Hitler was legally awarded the leadership post. Hitler’s leadership post was of the same content as that of Macon, Merkel, and Obomber, and casino Trump. Servants of the Bankers of the 6 pointed star – do I need a verb?

    I’ve always been a harsh critic of Nazi Germany’s racial chauvinism, and consider their hubris the reason they lost that critical war. Because when they lost, the Fiend won, and enslaved half of Europe, and now menaces Europa’s very existence.

    There were no good guys in that war, except for the average men who fought it honorably, which does not include the Red Army Rapists or some of the Nazis who also committed atrocities or the leadership on any side. Atrocities all around, including the Allies, especially at the end and after the war was “over”. [see Yalta, Dresden, Eisenhower's death camps, mass expulsions, etc..]

    Adolf Hitler (your would be savior of Europe?

    no, his arrogance and the arrogance of the Nazis doomed Europe. But their motivation to kill the Bolshevik fiend, was noble and honorable and I wish we would have allied with them towards that existential goal. Once Europe and the Free World was safe from the drooling Beast, then it would have been prudent to rein in Hitler.

    Your preoccupation is with the “Red Army Rapists” and “Bolshevik fiends,” and deal lightly with “some of the Nazis” who also committed atrocities.”

    My family was there, including in WW I. War is not pretty. Belgium was a neutral nation, as was Holland, and Luxemburg, Poland, and Czechoslovakia, and Yugoslavia, and Greece, and Denmark. They did nothing to provoke an attack from Germany. Hitler and the Nazis also wanted the return of their African colonies (what right does any European nation have to colonialist colonies)?

    The German Nazis, after 1933, were completely at the service of international finance, (and Agent Hitler, always obedient to the German & international Financial oligarchs, and some industrial ones (Krupp), led Germans down a terrible – negative path). Do you believe that Trotsky & Lenin, & possibly Stalin, were the only Agents (servants), of the German Power Elite? [Lenin was never an Agent, only a Revolutionary who the Germans believed would serve their interests.] Trotsky, might have served the British. But with Hitler, there is no doubt.

    There’s a political aspect to all this that seems to make a bailout more likely.

    On any rational (financial) analysis Greece and Italy should never have got the sort of loans that they did from French and German banks. The reason that they did, was probably because their economic failure would have risked the EU/ Euro, so the banks were no doubt encouraged to make the loans for political reasons – in exchange for guarantees from the EU bureaucracy.

    Now that the banks are calling in their insurance, the EU has to deliver either by 1) screwing down Italy the same as they did Greece, or 2) getting the French and German public (or better the whole EU) to bail out the banks.

    Italy seems to following a more independent route than Greece, so the only remaining option for the EU may well be a bailout – but that would be political poison in both France and Germany.

    It’s the intense indoctrination of Anglos since 1945 along the lines that Nationalism is bad and Racial Identity is bad. Hence the frantic virtue signaling of open frontiers and multiculturalism among the educated (indoctrinated).

    For example, it’s still completely unacceptable in middle class British society to support Nationalism (you’re a Nazi) or Anglo racial identity (other races are welcome to their identities – but if you’re and Anglo you’re a racist).

    It will eventually be resolved by the people who don’t care (the working class), who will toss out their elite and their “educated” middle class collaborators – in fact it’s already happening with Brexit – check out the Daily Mail comments section.

    And people voted for Brexit because they bought into Farage’s lunacy that the EU will cave despite Britain being a rounding error for it. =))

    That’s an innumerate way to describe the EU’s second biggest economy.

    This is kind of funny because if majority rule was to be followed, no deal with the EU would be on the table because a majority of EU citizens don’t want any deal with the UK without freedom of travel

    They’re so desperate to flood the UK with the assorted hill tribesmen that Merkel brought over that they’d vote to harm their economies to make it happen? I doubt it.

    Heck, staying in the EU is probably the choice of the British electorate now so why should the referendum be kept?

    More fantasy. Britain voted to leave the EU in the face of terrifying and heavily marketed official government predictions that voting to do so would lead to immediate financial meltdown. Safe to say, this did not happen. Indeed, our economy, though pitiful, continues to outperform the rest of the EU top four.

    There’s a certain type of jealousy-ridden European who disguises their envy in blowhard dismissal of the vote and ridicule of the UK. You also seem to have taken it as a personal rejection, like a child whose parents divorce. Such a sentiment is touching in a child but pathetic in an adult. It’s about the EU, not you.

    Class snobbery goes back a long time before 1945, and it’s hardly unique to Anglo-Saxons either. To be sure, in modern Western countries, it usually chooses to hide behind political correctness rather than show its true face; but it’s still pretty much the same thing down deep.

    German’s leaders had no right to attack Belgium.

    Where the Belgians placed their army, police, or girl scouts (as long as it happened within the national boundary of Belgium), was none of Germany’s business. According to you, Belgians should have opened their borders, roads, and rails, (and spread their cheeks), to the German army that was attacking France. Had the Belgians done that, they would be reviled, until today, as abject Cowards. Belgians are not Czechs; If attacked, they will resist. Maybe even now.

    Belgium, in 2018, is, with most of the rest of the nations on this planet, a puppet of Zio American Anglo imperialism. What don’t we know.

    In 1914, & 1940, Belgians resisted the Army that violated its sovereignty. Wish they would do that today. That is my father’s wish – from his grave in the Veterans Cemetery at Farmingdale, Long Island.

    The weird thing about explaining facts, especially in power politics, is that one is accused of moral judgments.
    I simply tried to explain that both in 1914 and in 1940 Germany had no choice, military necessity.
    Right does not exist in wars, war begins when right is no longer recognised
    Spinoza aleady explained that without power there cannot ne justice.
    A moral judgment about the German WWI and WWII occupations of Belgium should begin with the French attack of 1870.
    The main point in such a discussion should be: were the British clever in trying to save their empire at any cost ?
    Considering the present end result my conclusion is: they behaved very stupidly, they accomplished nothing, but death and destruction.
    Had GB read the mene tekel around 1900, present Britons might be a lot richer than they’re now.

    >”Europe is doomed by the International Banksters,”

    Adolf Hitler worked for the “International Banksters.”

    yea, so?

    I’ve already told you I’m not a Hitler fan. He did some great things, he did some stupid things. But in fairness to Hitler, his enemies (Bolshevism, Perfidious Albion, etc..) were far worse than he ever was.

    Your preoccupation is with the “Red Army Rapists” and “Bolshevik fiends,” and deal lightly with “some of the Nazis” who also committed atrocities.”

    Perhaps that’s because the Nazis were a survival response to the genocidal Bolshevik fiend that had recently starved to death millions of the world’s most successful farmers. Because they were successful and capable and people of ability.

    And the Bolshevik fiend had is sights set on Germany as its ultimate prize. Hitler and the Nazis were simply the only choice the German people had if they didn’t want to end up like the Kulaks. Or Hungarians under Bela Kun, etc…

    So yea, I see the Red Army Rapists as the face of Bolshevism/Soviet commie slavery and genocide.

    Whereas the Nazis were heroically trying to save themselves from Stalin’s genocidal goons. That they were arrogant was likely why they lost. Millions of Russians and Poles and Ukrainians and Norwegians and others held their noses and donned the German uniform to heroically fight the Fiend, but they did so with huge reservations because the only ones they hated more than the Soviet menace, were the arrogant Nazis. But that was the choice they had. It was either Stalin’s goons and gulags, or the Nazis.

    In a way this is playing out in a fashion today. Open borders Hillary vs. the arrogant buffoon. No one really likes the arrogant buffoon, but we had no other choice. Open borders Hillary would have guaranteed her’s and the Democrat’s hold on power for perpetuity. The ZUSA would have become a one-party nation overnight, when the hoards flooded in. It would have been the death knell of the Deplorables. They would have taken the guns from law abiding Americans and put them at the mercy of their legions of orcs.

    A dystopian hell on earth, like they’ve done to Libya and elsewhere.

    That was the fate we very nearly dodged. In this way Trump really is akin to Hitler, because both men represent(ed) the last hope of their respective ‘Kulaks’ (productive, middle class white people), before the commie, Antifa, BLM, La Raza hoards descended upon them and stripped them of their property and even lives, in many cases. [see Africa, South]

    They did nothing to provoke an attack from Germany.

    I have relatives from Norway. It was also invaded and occupied, and atrocities were committed, but if the Germans had not invaded, the Allies would have. It was a World War, and it was going to determine the fate of the entire planet’s people for generations to come.

    Hitler and the Nazis also wanted the return of their African colonies (what right does any European nation have to colonialist colonies)?

    As I’ve said over and over, I’m not here to defend the many errors and crimes of the Nazis.

    Do you believe that Trotsky & Lenin, & possibly Stalin, were the only Agents (servants), of the German Power Elite?

    now this is just silly

    To resist, one needs a moral and political (& economic) compass. The Founders of the USA followed John Locke, and blazed new ground. Jefferson was/is key to the American Revolution.

    Jefferson owned slaves. Didn’t you just morally condemn Germany for wanting some of their colonies returned? How it is a man who owned African slaves can be lauded, yet a nation that had their colonies taken from them by other colonizers, is condemned for doing what others were doing. And if you want to compare Hitler’s morality to that of his enemies, wasn’t it FDR’s and Churchill’s good buddy Stalin who invaded and subjugated and enslaved half of Europe as his colonies?

    Your (sanctimonious?) moral compass seems to oscillate wildly with the bromides of the era.

    Where the Belgians placed their army, police, or girl scouts (as long as it happened within the national boundary of Belgium), was none of Germany’s business. …

    Belgium, in 2018, is, with most of the rest of the nations on this planet, a puppet of Zio American Anglo imperialism. What don’t we know.

    What you don’t seem to understand is that the reason Germany invaded, was because it wanted to avoid Germany (and Belgium) becoming a doomed people slated for the trash heap of history, which is what has happened, since Germany was crushed by the forces of evil = Jewish supremacist genocidal designs to subjugate, genocide and enslave the West.

    And now as Belgium has decided to sign away its existence;

    https://www.firstorderhistorians.com/2018/12/06/parliament-of-belgium-agree-to-marrakech/

    that fateful decision is a direct consequence of Germany losing the war to the genocidal Jewish supremacist$. Duh.

    toward the Restoration of Our Republic!

    we can not restore our doomed Republic unless we’re willing to examine why it’s dying ((being murdered)). And the historical contexts for this civilization-ending zeitgeist.

    Sure, the Nazis were arrogant and alienated too many potential allies. But the forces they heroically fought, and ultimately lost to, are the exact same forces that have doomed Belgium to a dystopian, ‘multicultural / diversity’ hell on earth. Genocide in fact, and slow and excruciating at that, just like the Holodomor. In fact I’d heard it said that the reason the Fiend favored genocide by deliberate starvation, was because it was cheap, it was excruciating, and it was humiliating.

    Which is exactly what Belgium is going to be put though, as the Belgian people will be forced to fund their own genocide and be terrorized on their own streets by the teeming throngs of orcs set to descend upon them.

    Banks operate on hardly any own money, no more than five % of balance total.
    This has two consequences, profits in relation to share capital are very high, losses cannot be sustained.
    The whole bankster problem is in theory quite easy to solve: minimum own money for banks say thirty percent, then losses can be paid, one would expect, by those who own the bank.
    Secondly, three types of banks, independent of each other: for payments, for ordinary people who just want their savings in a safe place, and the speculation banks, for those who want to speculate.
    Alas, banksters successfully prevented such legislation, or even had such legislation abolished, as happened in the USA.
    Far more ‘own money’ in banks, I must admit, is easier said than done, it must be saved somewhere, saving is not consuming.
    And of course the FED, Bank of England and ECB problems remain.
    Central banks should serve the people, not the banksters.
    Economic monetary theory argues that it is unimportant if a central bank is commercial, or a state bank.
    I agree that the theory is right, but, as with all theories, within the assumptions.
    Cannot imagine that a state owned FED would ever have allowed unregulated derivatives to exist.
    USA financial regulations at the time of the 1929 crash still were worse than German regulations after the German crash that occurred around 1880.

    not much of a “reign” if you’re ordered around like a dog, and forced to beknight notorious pedophiles

    But as you just pointed out, Cromwell changed everything. He did not just remove and execute a ruthless, lying, treasonous King. He thereby at the same time broke and destroyed forever the historic power-base and all-powerful Church-backed intimidation of a tyrannous, out-of-touch Monarchy who still proclaimed themselves to be the executive face of God’s power on earth. Unfortunately, that took the Church itself down too – the only real opposition to Jew sabotage and nation-wrecking treason. Now, the “Royal Family” is nothing more than a gilded masthead on a sinking ship, doing little more with their enormous inherited wealth and pointless lives than travel the world waving to crowds, acting as Diplomats to the Commonwealth nations who the “real” professional diplomats largely ignore – and, as you pointed out, shaking hands by direction with whatever worthless, populist scum of the day the civil servants who control their agendas tell them to greet.

    And contrary to what every American still seems to be taught in High School, they have almost no political power whatever, being prohibited by the all-important “Royal Protocol” (insisted on by Jew media) from ever commenting publicly about anything at all – including their own ridiculous and disastrous lives. Princess Diana, anybody ?

    I have no doubt at all that 50 years from now – probably much less – the British Royal Family will have become no more than a formal, costumed, purposely-antiquated tourist-money museum-piece, kept around only to show naive, impressionable Japanese and fawning, emotional southern European tourists how Olde England – or at least a miniscule part of it – used to be.
