May’s appeal falls flat as EU seizes control of Brexit date
(as an aside, the way the MSM reverentially treat President Macron is just laughable, considering that he’s the most hated president in French history and his country is in a state of open revolt at the moment)
The European Union has kindly allowed a two week extension until Brexit, in the hope of forcing MPs to accept Theresa May’s withdrawal agreement. The alternative is a no deal Brexit (cue ‘Project Fear’). The twists and turns and legalities of all this are starting to baffle not just this commentator. On the 13th of March MPs voted against a no deal Brexit, but this vote was ‘indicative’; it has no legal standing. The default (legal) position remains a Brexit on 29th March, a week today, deal or no deal. As far as I understand it, MPs will have to vote for an extension (a ‘meaningful’ vote) for the extension to take place. The EU has no say in the matter, beyond offering an extension. Of course, what the EU is angling for is that MPs accept the withdrawal agreement, either before 29th March or during the extension period. The alternative is (cue the sound of thunder and lightening) a no deal Brexit. The withdrawal agreement (which is actually a legally binding treaty with the EU), contains the ‘backstop’ arrangement, which potentially keeps Britain in the EU indefinitely, and with no voting rights. Anyone who signs-up to the withdrawal agreement is, effectively, committing treason, and of course Theresa May should have been carted off to the Tower a long time ago.
People are often surprised when they discover I’m a Brexiteer, since I’ve lived in France for many years. I am pro-Europe, but I’m not pro-European Union because it is run by neo-cons, globalists and banksters and is now far removed from Europe’s socialist roots. Consider the following:
The EU has raped Greece, and has impoverished huge swathes of other Europeans with its policy of austerity and other neo-con goodies (the Labour Party manifesto, by the way, with its policies of nationalisation, etc, is against EU law).
The EU goes along with the totally ridiculous ‘Salisbury poisoning’ false flag, and the following Amesbury poisoning. The official narrative of these events just keeps getting more and more bizarre.
The EU is quite happy to go along with American led sanctions against Russia, despite the fact that these sanctions hurt European countries far more than they do Russia.
The EU is quite happy with NATO encroaching right up to Russia’s border, and deploying missiles. The EU is not concerned about a nuclear war taking place on European soil.
The EU just loves American and Israeli led wars in Africa and the Middle East, wars that have caused a Biblical flood of refugees into Europe.
Further afield, the EU recognises Juan Guaidó as the legitimate president of Venezuela; ie, the EU goes along with totally illegal ‘regime change’ operations by the US.
I could go on and on with this. My point is that the utterly corrupt and shabby institution that is the European Union needs to be taken down. Brexit will be the first big kick. Other European countries will then follow.
If Brexit does happen (against all the odds), we need a Corbyn-led government. Otherwise, if the Tories get in again they’ll turn Britain into a Dickensian theme park, which they’ve half done already.
