Billions for the EU’s wars

euarmyWith billions in arms programmes at the EU and national levels, the European Union is seeking to become an operating global military power. At its last summit it agreed not only to enhance co-operation among the member states’ armed forces to facilitate their combat deployment—for example in Africa—but also to rapidly establish a “defence fund” to reallocate funds from civilian to military use.

In a few years, Brussels will already be allocating €1½ billion annually for both research and development of new military technology.

Juncker Became EU Commission President After Establishing His Corporatist Credentials In Luxembourg

Ed – Reading about the extent to which Amazon is doging taxes makes my blood boil. Juncker turned Luxembourg into a Tax Haven where tax dodging corporations can avoid paying in to the European and world societies which sustain them. This is a disgusting example of the part played by the EU in the globalisation network enabled and overseen by the un-reformamble EU and Juncker during his term as Prime Minister in Luxembourg

The favoured candidate for the presidency of the European Commission has dedicated himself to making society less fair

“…What heavy industry the duchy had was vanishing by the early 1990s. During Juncker’s reign as Luxembourg’s prime minister from 1995 to 2013, the duchy reinvented itself as Europe’s largest tax haven: a land fit for Bernie Madoff to trade through. It allowed conglomerates to avoid tax through intermediate holding companies solely.

UK Column: EU To Take Control Of British Nuclear Deterrent

Ed – Although this article was posted in January the potential for mischief threatens the future. There is another article below which indicates the EU has not given up on getting their hands on our nuclear deterrant.

Posted at UKColumn, and written by David Ellis, Strategic Defence Initiatives, Wednesday, 25th January 2017

“The recent British referendum has made no difference to the speed and tenacity with which the Conservative Government under Prime Minister Theresa May and Secretary of State for Defence Sir Michael Fallon (a strong EU advocate and former EU Movement supporter) are continuing the path to EU military union. There has been no change in the advancing integration of UK military forces into the EU structure — the subject is simply not discussed in political, public and media forums, which is testimony to the usual EU policy of implementation by stealth where possible.

German Public Broadcaster Accused Of Suppressing Stories Critical Of Merkel’s Open Door Immigration Policy

Ed – The methods used here by German news channel WRD are eerily similar to the BBC’s suppression of, and bias against, any story which puts the EU’s actions and policies in a bad light. Suppressing this story about Merkel’s unilateral declaration of open border immigration without consultation is a good example. This German reporter is merely stating facts. Apparently the German media is demonstrably biased and we here in Britain should remember that and think of their public service channel WRD/ARD in the same light as our own BBC as the Liberal left propaganda arm of the ruling political class.

You Won’t Believe What the British Government Is About to Privatise Next

Ed – After we have departed the fraudulent, corrupt and anti-democratic EU there is going to be a reckoning with the Conservatives’ privatisation religion. It is time for democracy to take a hand and restore a mixed economy. Capitalism with Socialist characteristics.

A new political party anyone?

By Graham Vanbergen

Back in March 2016 I wrote a piece for the European Financial Review entitled “Mass privatisation masks Britain’s failed economic policies” which tells the story about how the Chancellor at the time, George Osborne, was selling off state assets at an unprecedented rate to shore up a failing economic plan.

The plan entailed reaching a target of £60 billion of state asset sales by year end 2016. The target was then extended so by the end of this parliament in 2020, that total will have reached a staggering £100 billion, (not including buildings or land, because the government refuses to respond to FoI requests on such sales) – more than Thatcher, Major, Blair and Brown combined.
