THE European Union is facing a “crisis of legitimacy” in the wake of the migrant crisis as Hungary and Europe’s far right continue to rail against the imposition of refugee quotas.
Social sciences professor Peter Wilkin claims there is no doubt the EU is facing an “existential crisis”, which has only been heightened by the UK’s vote to leave the already crumbling bloc on June 23 this year.
But Hungary too is likely to play a part in the union’s downfall, the social sciences professor said. This is because the far right electorate continues to rail against the EU with anti-immigration protests and violent demonstrations ignored by inward-looking Brussels bureaucrats. (more…)
MEDDLING Brussels has said the British press should not report when terrorists are Muslims in a slew of demands to the Government to crack down on the media.
A report from the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance (ECRI) found there was an increase in hate speech and racist violence in the UK from 2009 to March 2016.
Blaming the press, ECRI Chair Christian Ahlund, said: “It is no coincidence that racist violence is on the rise in the UK at the same time as we see worrying examples of intolerance and hate speech in the newspapers, online and even among politicians.”
The report makes a whopping 23 recommendations to Theresa May’s Government for changes to criminal law, the freedom of the press, crime reporting and equality law. (more…)
MARINE LE PEN has dealt a crippling blow to the European Union by promising she will hold a referendum to decide whether France remains in the Union if she becomes president.
The president of the National Front, a right-wing Eurosceptic party, issued the warning to Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission after branding his state of the Union speech to MEPs at the European Parliament in Strasbourg, France, “insipid”.
Expressing his “regret” at the historical Brexit vote, Mr Juncker insisted the EU is “not at risk”. (more…)
THE European Union appeared more fractured than ever today after a powerful group of eastern states laid down a series of demands over migration and the economy.
Members of the influential Visegrad group, which comprises of Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic and Slovakia, rejected migrant quotas and blasted the overbearing EU Commission with an incendiary ultimatum.
The group represents a faction of nations which have become increasingly concerned by authoritarian Brussels, with Poland and Hungary both locked in bitter legal battles with the EU.
Their demands come after a separate clique of Mediterranean states, including France, Spain and Italy, formed their own interest group to counter the power wielded by Angela Merkel.
The developments are a sign of the spiralling disintegration of the EU which is seeing the bloc fray into a series of powerful factions, each fighting to impose their own interest on bureaucrats in Brussels. (more…)
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker slammed UKIP leader Nigel Farage at the first European Parliament meeting since the Brexit vote on Tuesday, asking “why are you here?” and showing he will not be walked over when it comes to exit negotiations.
“To some extent I’m really surprised you are here,” Juncker said to the outspoken Brexit leader, who campaigned on a platform of taking back border control and who yesterdayapologised to New Zealandersfor Britain turning its back on them when it joined the ECC.
Yesterday the British people stood up for their freedom. Today the world is a different place.
Celebrities and politicians swarmed television studios to plead with voters to stay in the EU. Anyone who wanted to leave was a fascist. Economists warned of total collapse if Britain left the European Union. Alarmist broadcasts threatened that every family would lose thousands of pounds a year if Brexit won.
Even Obama came out to warn Brits of the economic consequences of leaving behind the EU.
Every propaganda gimmick was rolled out. Brexit was dismissed, mocked and ridiculed. It was for lunatics and madmen. Anyone who voted to leave the benevolent bosom of the European Union was an ignorant xenophobe who had no place in the modern world. And that turned out to be most of Britain.
While Londonistan, that post-British city of high financial stakes and low Muslim mobs, voted by a landslide to remain, a decisive majority of the English voted to wave goodbye to the EU. 67% of Tower Hamlets, the Islamic stronghold, voted to stay in the EU. But to no avail. The will of the people prevailed. (more…)
