  • The Emerging Brexit Betrayal

    03/18/2019 2:03:13 PM PDT · by Kaslin · 30 replies ^ | March 18, 2019 | Nicholas Waddy
    In June 2016, almost three years ago, 17 million citizens of the United Kingdom voted to exit the European Union — more than have ever voted for anything or anyone in British history. And yet, from the first hours after these votes were cast, Brexit opponents and EU apologists began to undermine the clearly-expressed will of the British electorate. Among the most galling of these attempts to sabotage British democracy have been calls for a “People's Vote” on whether to cancel Brexit — as if the “people” had not already been heard from! Sadly, it appears that the insidious forces...

    Jeb Bush calls on Republicans to challenge Trump Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush says Donald Trump should face a Republican primary challenge in 2020. Bush, who ran for president in 2016, told CNN the party “ought to be a given a choice.” “I think someone should run. Just because Republicans ought to be given a choice,” he said. “To have a conversation about what it is to be a conservative I think is important...And our country needs to have competing ideologies that people -- that are dynamic, that focus on the world we’re in and the world we’re moving towards...

    He also compares the European Union to the mafia The Who‘s Roger Daltrey says Brexit won’t affect British musicians. The frontman, who has previously defended his pro-Brexit views, was asked whether Brexit would be ‘bad for British rock music’. “No. What’s it got to do with the rock business?” he told Sky News. “How are you going to tour in Europe?” the interviewer replied. “Oh dear. As if we didn’t tour Europe before the f****** EU,” he said. “Oh give it up!” Daltrey then compared the EU to the mafia, saying: “If you want to be signed up to be...

    Theresa May has asked MPs to make an "honourable compromise" as she seeks to persuade them to back her Brexit deal at the third time of asking. Writing in the Sunday Telegraph, the prime minister said failure to support the deal would mean "we will not leave the EU for many months, if ever". Mrs May is expected to bring her withdrawal agreement back to the Commons next week for a third vote.

    It was widely reported that Theresa May paid a visit to Angela Merkel in Berlin shortly before the Chequers meeting. What did they discuss? We weren't told at the time. According to a confidential source who has seen a complete transcript of the meeting, the two leaders agreed to a plan that Mrs May allegedly told the Chancellor would "appease" Brexit voters while nonetheless enabling her to get rid of those Tories who were (in her words) "against progress and unity in the EU." According to the transcript, Mrs May is also reported to have agreed "to keep as many...

    As I write, I happen to be next door to the Canadian House of Commons - which is far from my favorite place. But, at its lowest and most contemptible, Ottawa's House has never screwed over the Commoners the way that of its imperial mother just has in London. Last night, sixteen days before Britain supposedly leaves the European Union in accord with the people's vote of three years ago, their elected representatives voted by 312 to 308 to rule out a "no-deal" Brexit - ie, a straightforward walkaway - ever. So the EU now has no incentive ever to...

    THE SYMBOLISM was painful. Facing the reality of another lost vote in the Commons on March 12th, Theresa May lost her voice too. The prime minister croaked that, now MPs had decisively rejected her Brexit deal for a second time, by 149 votes, they faced “unenviable choices”. But the truth is that, along with her voice, she has lost control of the Brexit process. That was brought home on the evening of March 13th when MPs voted once more against the alternative of leaving the European Union with no deal, on a motion proposed by a cross-party group of backbenchers...

    Sensing a threat to the ideal of a united Europe, French President Emmanuel Macron addressed the “citizens of Europe” directly in an open letter published last week in 28 languages, saying the EU faces an “urgent” threat ahead of upcoming European parliamentary elections. Brexit is one example of the "urgent" threats the European Union is facing today, Macron wrote. "It symbolises the crisis of Europe, which has failed to respond to its peoples’ needs for protection from the major shocks of the modern world." _________ The leaders of France’s left- and right-wing parties reacted with scathing editorials of their own...

    The U.K.’s Brexit deal with the EU has been rejected by U.K. lawmakers in another landmark defeat for British Prime Minister Theresa May. May’s Brexit deal was defeated for the first time back in January but she had hoped last-ditch tweaks to the deal, specifically on the contentious Irish border issue, would help persuade Members of Parliament (MPs) to change their minds. Her deal was rejected by 149 votes after 242 MPs voted for the deal and 392 MPs voted against the deal.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Robert Mueller brought an enviable reputation as the architect of the modern FBI and a force behind major criminal prosecutions to his job as special counsel investigating Russia’s role in the 2016 U.S. election but has encountered a relentless campaign by President Donald Trump to discredit the probe. Mueller, a longtime Republican, received bipartisan praise when he was named as special counsel in May 2017 to take over the Russia investigation after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey, whose agency had led the probe. Trump and allies in the Republican Party and conservative media have sought to...

    A woman in London was convicted on Friday over the genital cutting of her daughter, becoming the first person to be successfully prosecuted under the country’s law banning the practice. The 37-year old woman was found guilty of committing female genital mutilation in August 2017, when her daughter was 3. The girl’s father, 43, was cleared of charges. Neither parent was identified because of reporting restrictions placed on the case. “Female genital mutilation has an appalling physical and emotional impact on victims that usually lasts their entire life,” said Lynette Woodrow, a deputy chief crown prosecutor, in a statement. “A...

    The future of American health care is playing out over at our cousin’s place across the Atlantic — Great Britain — if anyone cares to take the time to look. And you should, because if any of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates win the White House and get their way in Congress, we’ll end up a British-style healthcare system. It’s a system that has been failing for years but is now near collapse. The vaunted National Health Service, which is full-on socialized medicine — “Medicare for All” is what it will be called in the U.S. — has hit an...

    Germany will not declare Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement a terrorist organization, a top official said Friday. Deputy Minister in the Foreign Ministry Niels Annen told news magazine Der Spiegel that the Iran-backed Shiite Islamist movement is a relevant factor in Lebanese society and part of the complex political landscape in the country. The comments come after Britain last month banned Hezbollah’s political wing, accusing the movement of destabilizing the Middle East. “The British move is a national decision that has no direct impact on the position of the German government or the EU,’ said Annen. The European Union had already added...

In Cornwall, Nevine Mann and her family have been buying extra food and supplies since last summer to make sure she is prepared if there is no deal as Britain leaves the European Union.
