Corbyn Called for the EU to be Defeated in 2010

TalkRADIO have unearthed footage from the Durham Miners Gala in 2010, where Jeremy Corbyn called for the European Union, among a raft of other international organisations to be ‘defeated’.

“They, the world’s bankers, International Monetary Fund, European Union, they are utterly united in what they want. Utterly united in deflation, suppressing the economy, and creating unemployment. Utterly united in that.”

“We will not be silenced by these people. We will win through. We will defeat them”

Less than six years later and he got got his wish…

Belgian Government Collapses Over UN Migration Pact

Guido would like to thank the Belgians for putting our domestic political crisis into perspective. The Belgian Prime Minister Charles Michel resigned last night as his government collapsed after he signed the controversial UN migration pact that his coalition partners opposed. Will they beat their 2011 record of going 589 days without an elected government?

The largest party in the coalition, the centre-right Flemish secessionist N-VA stopped supporting the Government, and after Michel attempted to stay in power with a “coalition of good will”, the opposition proposed a no confidence motion and he resigned. At least the UK still has a Government… of sorts…

French Finance Minister Calls for “Europe to Become an Empire Again”

The French Finance Minister has told the French-German Business Forum that “Europe has to become an empire again.” Speaking candidly to the assembled delegates, the minister spoke to Macron’s vision of a united Europe, saying unification as an Empire has to occur “in the next 25 years.”

Describing a federal European empire as “European sovereignty” he told the conference that whilst it should be built “brick by brick,” “rapid progress” is needed. “We should be looking at weeks and months much more than years.” With Merkel announcing her support for a European army last week, the building of federal European sovereignty brick by brick looks well under way…

EU Commission: Visa Free Travel Even If No Deal

On Tuesday, EU Commissioners made the recommendation that even in the event of no deal, UK citizens would be placed on the visa-exempt list for short stays across the Schengen Area for up to 90 days.

“The European Commission has proposed to the EU legislator to exempt UK nationals from visa requirements for short-term stays”.

Turns out kids will still be able to frolic around Europe visa free, on their summer holidays. Another Remainer lie bites the dust.

Hungarians Reject Immigration

hungarians3

Hungarians have rejected EU quotas for mandatory migrant resettlement in a referendum last night. Eurosceptic President Viktor Orban scored an overwhelming majority of 92.3% to 1.4% but the turnout of 42% was below the 50% needed for the vote to change Hungarian law and the National Election Committee has now declared the result void. Interesting that the Hungarian vote to join the EU in 2003 saw a turnout of only 45.6% when rules were different. The EU, death by a thousand referenda…

EU Leaders Discussing Brexit Without Britain, Again

merkel hollande

Leaders of every EU member state bar Britain will meet in Bratislava in mid-September to “continue a political reflection” post-Brexit. The event, which was scheduled after the last meeting in Brussels, is ostensibly for the leaders to debate “further reforms in line with our strategic agenda”. This will almost certainly include extensive discussions around Brexit. Frustratingly both Merkel and Juncker don’t want to engage the UK in any of these negotiations until Article 50 is triggered, that the meeting is happening in the first place should be an encouraging sign to Brexiteers worried about a betrayal. Presumably MI6 will be earning the taxpayers’ shilling and the Foreign Office will still be fully aware of the EU’s strategy… 

Creagh: Vote Remain For Dolphins in the Thames

Creagh River

Mary Creagh has come up with a brilliant environmental justification for staying in the EU. Apparently we have Brussels to thank for “seals and even dolphins making regular appearances down river… where once it was dangerous to swim or swallow the water, it is now safe for humans and wildlife”. Righto…

Does Creagh’s argument that “the EU played a huge part in these environmental improvements” stack up? Well, the EU’s $100 billion-a-year Emissions Trade Scheme infamously bankrolled a scam allowing Chinese and Indian firms to generate a harmful greenhouse gas called HFC-23, then claim money from European taxpayers to destroy it. The Environmental Investigation Agency called it the “biggest environmental scandal in history”. Even if EU membership means we can drink from the Thames, not sure that makes up for the millions of taxpayer cash blown on a greenhouse gas scam…

European Parliament Vice President: Dave’s EU Deal “Not Legally Binding”

Technocrat scum

Yesterday a senior Eurocrat argued it is “time for an EU ban on referenda”, today the same website has published an interview with the Vice President of the European Parliament in which he claims the PM’s renegotiation is not legally binding after all. Alexander Graf Lambsdorff says Brussels “clearly went too far” during its negotiations with Dave and suggests the deal could be altered if we stay in the EU:

“their agreement is in no way a document of the European Union, but a text of hybrid character, which is unspecified and not legally binding”

Incidentally, when was the last time the PM or anyone from the Remain campaign mentioned the renegotiation?

Oxbridge Careerists Want To Remain, War Heroes Want To Leave

How about this for some statistical analysis demonstrating unequivocally that Remainers are more likely to be Oxbridge careerists. Research by MyVoucherCodes finds 79% of Oxbridge MPs want to stay in the EU, while just 16% of MPs who started their career as a politician want to leave. Only 19% of MPs with military backgrounds are Remainers. So Oxbridge careerists want us to Remain, and war heroes tend to back Brexit. Talking of which, when is the apparently Eurosceptic Johnny Mercer getting off the fence?

Lost In Translation: PM Flounders In Poland

fdhghdfhd

All hasn’t gone to plan for the David Cameron in Poland today, with the PM spectacularly misjudging the mood on welfare in Warsaw. Dave triumphantly exited discussions about EU reform with the Polish Prime Minister Beata Szydlo, claiming the negotiations were “excellent” and that they had agreed to work together on the issue of migrant benefits. Unfortunately for the PM, the Polish premier had a rather different take on their talks, telling reporters that they did not “see eye to eye”. Guido can only assume that something was lost in translation…

Yet More Pro-EU Sockpuppets Funded By Brussels

Simon Hix Makes It Rain

BSE have a new line: “Britain is the best connected country in EU negotiations,” they claim, pushing a new report by the Economic and Social Research Council as evidence. Indeed Britain is so “well connected” that we have not once succeeded in blocking an unwanted EU measure in recent years. This is despite trying over seventy times.

So, who is behind the report? It was published as part of ESRC’s “UK in a Changing Europe” project, which is directed by Professor Anand Menon. Who is a “visiting expert” at the European Commission, reporting directly to the President.

What about ESRC themselves? They have just won the contract to lead the EU India Platform for the Social Sciences and Humanities – a 1.5-million euro project funded under European Commission’s 7th Framework Programme. They are literally paid by Brussels.

And what of the report’s author? Simon Hix was previously directly awarded a contract directly by the European Commission. Worth £53,700.

Yet more pro-EU sockpuppets funded by Brussels, then wheeled out by BSE. Guido will be watching out for more…

EU Literally Chucking Taxpayers’ Money Down The Toilet

Sewer_Plant

Get Britain Out have uncovered some rather unsanitary revelations about EU waste in the 2014 audit. In a section titled “Example of projects without added value”, the report mentions a scheme devised in 2006 in which millions were spent building a sewage plant and network for two Greek municipalities. There was one minor snag: unfortunately the genius EU technocrats forgot about the linking of households and businesses to the sewage network. A full 8 years later at the close of 2014 the proper plumbing had still not been put in place. The report states:

“Project delivered but remains unused: A CF project in Greece consisted of the construction of a sewage plant and of a sewerage network for two municipalities. The infrastructure works were completed in 2013. However, the project cannot be used until connections from private households and industry to the sewerage network are also constructed. From the initial announcement of the project (in 2006) the municipality had enough time to design and implement such connections to the sewerage network. However, at the end of 2014, our audit found that such connections were still not in place. The project of the private connections has been procured during 2015.”
While Guido can sympathise that it’s always hard to find a good plumber when you need one, 8 years does seem rather a long time…

Revealed: US Trade Rep’s Wife Worked For EU Too

FROMAN WIFE

It was revealed yesterday that Obama trade representative Michael Froman, who took it upon himself to intervene in the referendum debate to warn against Brexit, was previously paid by the EU. Froman worked as part of the European Commission’s Forward Studies Unit, a department tasked with monitoring and evaluating European integration. The cosy relationship doesn’t end there…

Not only did Froman work for Brussels, his wife Nancy Goodman did as well. She took on a post at the Directorate General For Competition, which is also part of the European Commission. Froman confirmed the pair’s conflicting interests in a speech to Brussels in 2013:

It is nice to be back in Brussels, and I am particularly pleased to make this city my first stop in Europe as U.S. Trade Representative. It doesn’t seem like that long ago when my wife Nancy and I were camped out in the lobby of the Berlaymont, phone directory in hand, cold-calling offices in hope of finding someone to take us on as stagiaires [Commission trainees]. After a few days and some persuasion, my wife found a position in DG Competition [Directorate General For Competition] and I found one in the Forward Studies Unit, the predecessor to today’s Bureau of European Policy Advisers.

So not only was Obama’s Brexit-bashing trade rep in the pay of Brussels, his wife was too…

EU Sock Puppets Revealed

Earlier in the week when “Universities UK” said it was essential that the UK stayed in the EU, Guido smelt a rat. Sure enough, they are in the pay of the EU. Dan Hannan has produced this new video showing who gets those €uros. The sock puppets range from the CBI to Friends of the Earth, who then speak up for the gravy train continuing. Quelle surprise….

Guy Verhofstadt Tells Syriza’s Alexis Tsipras What To Do

Guido has many times enjoyed Nigel Farage giving Guy Verhofstadt a tongue lashing. This time liberal Guy is the one doing the venting, demanding that Syriza implement actual reforms rather than just pay lip-service to them. Verhofstadt in “talking sense shocker”…

Dave Leaves Juncker Hanging

The PM is in Latvia for a meeting with EU leaders, where he bumped into his old high-fiving friend Jean-Claude Juncker:

At least one of them learnt their lesson from last time

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
