France and Germany, along with a host of up to 21 other countries, are set to demand Hungary and Poland either accept migrants under the quota system or leave the European Union (EU).
The two nations have ignored Brussels’ insistence that they take migrants presently residing in great numbers in Italy and Greece. Public opinion in Hungary and Poland is also strongly against being forced to accept thousands of migrants from non-European cultures.
The europhile, who watched from the United Nations as Theresa May triggered Article 50, reportedly said: “Britain has shot itself in the foot. We intend to shoot you in the other.”His comments, made to the BBC’s UN correspondent Nick Bryant, signal a bitter road ahead for Brexit negotiations, despite top Brussels chiefs outlining how they want friendly talks.The very undiplomatic words raises the prospect some resentful European countries could secretly be wanting to deliberately punish the UK for invoking Article 50 and leaving the European Union (EU).
The Council of Europe has claimed the UK media, “online sources”, and “certain politicians” are inciting “hate speech” and “hate crimes”, and demands the state strengthens “mechanisms” to “tone down” and silence such voices.
The Advisory Committee for the Council also said the “media should be promoting intercultural dialogue”, “training” journalists in the right way to report, and hiring more ethnic minorities.
European human rights judges have ruled that Theresa May’s policy of stripping British terror suspects of their citizenship while abroad to bar them from returning to Britain is lawful.
Judges at the European court of human rights (ECHR) unanimously threw out a claim by a Sudan-born terror suspect who took UK citizenship in 2000 that depriving him of his British passport violated his right to a private and family life.
The ECHR ruling also dismissed the man’s claim that he couldn’t properly appeal the decision from abroad because he feared that his communications with his lawyers would be intercepted by the Sudanese counter-terrorism authorities.
Brussels has weaponised migrants, with disastrous results.
The Brexit vote is history. A closed or open Britain is the defining battle now’, read a Guardian headline in the wake of the Brexit vote. This has been the elite narrative ever since. The question of whether Britain will now turn in on itself or extend outwards, shun migrants or welcome newcomers, has preoccupied both sides of the post-Brexit debate. Theresa May’s Lancaster House speech was dedicated to dispelling the idea that Brexit was a victory for Little Englanders, and arguing that instead it was an opportunity for a truly global, internationalist Britain. Among staunch Remainers, the spectre of post-vote xenophobia has fuelled their campaign to soften or better yet scupper Brexit.
The European Commission has published a document outlining five scenarios for how the European Union could evolve within the next ten years.
The so-called White Paper on the Future of Europe, which will be presented at the Rome Summit on March 25, 2017 to mark the 60th anniversary of the European Union, is intended to be “the starting point for a wider public debate on the future of our continent.”
Each of the five scenarios is based on the premise that “the 27 Member States move forward together as a Union.” The document does not consider the possibility that the EU could collapse or break apart, or even that the powers of the EU be significantly curtailed.
It’s a sentiment that only a few contemporary thinkers have touched on. And when they did, it was in a fleeting manner, without elaborating on why it is that if Israel falls, Europe will soon follow. It’s not a new sentiment. A year after the Six Day War, Eric Hoffer, America’s “blue-collar philosopher“, wrote a short paragraph about the matter…
The President of Finland, Sauli Niinistö made it clear to CNBC last week that while Russia’s actions involving Crimea must come to a peaceful resolution, the most important issues facing Europe right now are terrorism and migration. Despite Finland pledging $55 Million Euros to NATO, Niinistö also made it clear that European nations need to ultimately be responsible for their own security.
The man tipped as the next U.S. ambassador to the European Union (EU) has slammed the “undemocratic” and “anti-American” bloc, indicating the Trump administration will “encourage a reversal of the … drive to a socialist, protectionist, United States of Europe”.
In a furiously Eurosceptic article, Dr. Ted Malloch argued the U.S. could no longer support a federalist EU when putting “America, first”, as EU trade, foreign, and defence policies increasingly work against the interests of the U.S.
“Of course the Transatlantic Alliance must continue. Good European-American relations are absolutely essential. But European integration is not at all in America’s interest”, he wrote in The Parliament Magazine.
BRUSSELS politicians voted to pass a landmark trade deal between Canada and the EU this afternoon following a fractious debate between MEPs and mass protests outside the parliament building in Strasbourg.
French presidential hopeful Marine Le Pen launched a blistering attack on the proposed deal today, saying it would further enrich the powerful at the expense of working families.
She raged: “The CETA agreement was carefully hidden from citizens because none of you can justify it. You voted on it in private because debating in public, that’s something you hate.
“When citizens understand all of this they will never trust you again. That is why this is a terrible agreement. It will undermine thousands of jobs in Europe.”
To loud applause she blasted: “Are you not ashamed? You’re giving away our rights to legislate and you’re robbing our citizens of the protection of their rights that they expect from their representatives.
“You’re making it possible for multinationals to attack member states so you make sure no new legislation will displease them.
