May days in Britain : Comments

By Binoy Kampmark, published 19/12/2018

If there is a good reason to be suspicious of a second referendum, former Prime Minister Tony Blair's endorsement of it would be one.

I think a second referendum could easily confirm the leave result. The Brits must now have a sense they are being bullied by Brussels and remaining would be giving into blackmail. Like Basil Fawlty not mentioning the war it would be a bloodless re-run of WW2. Since Germany is the richest country in the EU it's like subjugation by stealth.

If a second referendum voted remain the ardent leavers could make the UK ungovernable. Former British colonies like Australia and Canada with fabulous resources are there to help out Old Blighty if there is a hard Brexit.

The UK should simply unilaterally declare they are divorced as of this minute from the EU.

They should confiscate all EU property in the country, threaten to confiscate all EU citizen held property in the country, if the EU want to play hard ball.

It wouldn't take very long for all the French who depend on supplying the UK for their living to don their yellow jackets & move their protests to Brussels.

It really is time for a cultural revolution Chinese style in the west.

Brexit Betrayal March

The problem in England is the same as in France.

Our nations leaders are SNAKE-OIL SALESMEN for Globalism.
That's why Macron tried to do deals and buy the people off instead of simply putting them first.

Come on Aidan are you still living on that planet out Mars way?

The rights of the UK have been getting trampled by that bunch of bureaucrats in Brussels for years, & they want more billions before they will let go of their cash cow. The only way to treat people like that is to take them head on, & trample them in return.

Time to grow up a bit, & do a bit of reading. You might just manage to come back to earth, with a bit more knowledge.

Could it be very few thought the first vote would succeed so did nothing to make sure it would fail, there has been an article suggesting the remainer don't bother voting because any new vote will be rigged to stay.

Christmas pay rise means EU chiefs make UK average annual wage every month.

The monthly paychecks of EU chiefs Jean-Claude Juncker and Donald Tusk are close to the average yearly salary for British workers, it has been revealed.

The presidents of the European commission and European council are now receiving ($37,000) each month after receiving a £495-a-month pay rise backdated to July 2018.

The average annual wage in the UK in 2018 is £29,500, according to the Office for National Statistics.

Juncker and Tuskís annual pay of £352,800 is also more than double that of UK prime minister Theresa May, who made £150,400 last year.

The pay of the EUís top brass is calculated automatically by the EUís statistics authority based on the cost of living in Belgium and Luxembourg and the salaries of civil servants across member states.

That meant an across the board increase for top EU officials of 1.7% in 2018 Ė up from 1.5% in 2017, revealed German newspaper Bild.

The European commissionís six vice-presidents have seen their monthly salary go up by £450 to almost £27,700.

The other 22 commissioners, including Britainís Julian King, are receiving an extra £395, which takes their monthly salaries to around £23,900.

Top EU officials who run the various departments of the commission are now receiving more than Ä20,000-a-month (£17,991) for the first time.
