Royal Navy warships ‘should be sent to Gibraltar’ during Brexit negotiations as Spain pushes for joint sovereignty

As mentioned in previous posts, Spain will be gunning for British territory now that Brexit is in motion. The Brexit leaves the rest of the EU bitter and as a form of punishment will support Spain’s bid to take Gibraltar. Great Britain will receive no support since it exited and is no longer part of the EU.

British nuclear submarine ‘surfaces off Gibraltar’ as row with Spain heats up

 

British warships must be sent to Gibraltar to “protect it from Spain” during Brexit negotiations, a former Ministry of Defence special adviser has said.

Known as The Rock, Gibraltar lies at the end of the Iberian Peninsula in Spain, but its 30,000 residents have voted several times to remain a British Overseas Territory.

After an overwhelming 96 per cent Remain vote in June’s EU referendum, Spanish foreign minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo swiftly called for the UK to share sovereignty, but the move was snubbed by Westminster. Continue reading

Beyond the EU

BERLIN/NUUK/REYKJAVÍK/TÓRSHAVN (Own report) – Whereas the Brexit has been met with wholesale rejection by the German and other EU member states’ establishments, it was positively assessed in the little noticed countries of Northwest Europe, growing in strategic importance. Iceland’s president recently invited Great Britain to enhance its cooperation with the “triangle of non-EU countries,” meaning Iceland, and the autonomous regions Greenland and the Faroe Islands, which are part of the Kingdom of Denmark. Greenland left the European Community (EC) in 1982; the Faroe Islands have never been members and Iceland officially withdrew its application for EU membership in 2015. All three countries refuse nuclear weapons and NATO’s missile defense shield on their territories, while showing a greater openness towards Russia than most other western countries. Iceland and particularly Greenland have been growing in their strategic importance with the impending opening of Arctic sea routes and exploitation of Arctic natural resources. German experts have already suggested inciting Greenland to secede from Denmark. This would offer Germany greater influence on Greenland and consequently on the Arctic’s political, economic and military affairs.

IMF boss Christine Lagarde calls turn away from globalisation world’s top challenge

In today’s world up is down, down is up, left is right and right is left. Retaining national sovereignty is now an offense to those who want to destroy it.

 

The risk of countries turning their back on global co-operation is the biggest challenge facing the world, as low growth and rising inequality fuel the rise of populism, said IMF managing director Christine Lagarde.

“It did not take the Brexit vote to understand that low growth, rising inequality, and a lack of jobs have combined with social and geopolitical concerns to fuel the rise of populism and inward-looking forces,” Ms Lagarde said in the text of a speech on Thursday at the Centre for Global Development in Washington.

Italy’s finance minister INCREDIBLY blames nation’s banking crisis… ON BREXIT

As said in the previous post about Italy, it’s convenient to blame others for your problem to keep the attention away.

 

BRITAIN’S vote to leave the European Union (EU) is to blame for the disastrous state of Italy’s banks – and not Rome’s heavily criticised policymakers – according to the finance minister.

Pier Carlo Padoan has sought to deflect attention from himself against allegations the Italian government could have prevented the country’s current banking crisis by laying fault with the Brexit vote, despite the financial crisis hugely pre-dating the referendum.

The minister said instability of several of the banks aren’t the cause of the turmoil now rocking the Italian financial system, reported German newspaper Spiegel. Continue reading

Flexible Union with a European FBI

BERLIN (Own report) – Berlin is applying intense pressure in the aftermath of the Brexit, to reorganize the EU. Under the slogan, “flexible Union,” initial steps are being taken to establish a “core Europe.” This would mean an EU, led by a small, tight-knit core of countries, with the rest of the EU member countries being subordinated to second-class status. At the same time, the President of the European Parliament and Germany’s Minister of the Economy (both SPD) are calling for the communitarization of the EU’s foreign policy, reinforcement of its external borders, the enhancement of domestic repression and the creation of a “European FBI.” The German chancellor has invited France’s president and Italy’s prime minister to Berlin on Monday to stipulate in advance, measures to be taken at the EU-summit on Tuesday. German media commentators are speaking in terms of the EU’s “new directorate” under Berlin’s leadership. At the same time, Berlin is intensifying pressure on London. The chair of the Bundestag’s EU Commission predicts a new Scottish referendum on secession and calls for Scotland’s rapid integration into the EU. German politicians in the European Parliament are exerting pressure for rapidly implementing the Brexit and reorganizing the EU. Chancellor Merkel has reiterated her veiled threat that “reconciliation and peace” in Europe are “anything but self-evident,” should European countries choose to no longer be integrated in the EU.

Why Britain’s Vote on EU Membership Is So Momentous

Watch the Brexit vote today. Whichever way it goes, it could mark a turning point for Europe and the world.

Britain’s referendum on its membership in the European Union is its most important decision in a generation. But regardless of which option the Brits choose, June 23 could mark a major turning point, both for Britain and for the EU. The referendum is forecast to be close.

The Fate of Europe

Even if Britain votes to stay, it will not deepen its ties with the European Union. Britain has no appetite for handing over more power to Brussels.

On eve of defining British EU referendum, rivals race for final votes

British Prime Minister David Cameron and his eurosceptic opponents made final pitches for wavering voters on Wednesday on the eve of a defining referendum on European Union membership with the outcome still too close to call.

The vote, which echoes the rise of populism elsewhere in Europe and the United States, will shape the continent’s future. A victory for “out” could unleash turmoil on financial markets and foreign exchange bureaux reported a surge in demand for foreign currency from Britons wary sterling may fall.

“Quitting Europe is a risk to your family’s future because a vote to leave on Thursday means there is no going back on Friday,” Cameron said.

Most pollsters said the result was too close to predict, and would depend on turnout on the day and any late swing among the substantial number of undecided voters.

“It’s our last chance to sort this out and take back control,” said former London mayor Boris Johnson, the main leader of the Leave campaign and favorite with bookmakers to replace Cameron in the event of Brexit. Continue reading

BREXIT PREDICTION: Globalists are going to steal the referendum with massive fraud… ‘remain’ will be declared the winner even if ‘leave’ wins the vote

(NaturalNews) Here at Natural News, we fully endorse the BREXIT vote to leave the European Union. (Heck, we even support #Texit for Texas independence!) Yet I predict that “remain” will be declared the winner for a simple, obvious reason: The globalist slave masters of the EU will not voluntarily allow the peasants escape to their control.

Financial markets already know the vote has been rigged

The financial markets across Europe have already factored in what they believe is a near-certain win for the “remain” vote, even though most real people on the street desperately want to leave the EU. What do the financial kingpins know that gives them this confidence? They know the vote results have already been rigged. Continue reading

Smug German boss says EU will SURVIVE without UK as France & Germany are MORE IMPORTANT

However Brussels would crumble if France and European powerhouse Germany decided to leave, Alexander Lambsdorff MEP has said.

The deputy president of the European Parliament said a British exit from the EU following the June 23 referendum was not a “horror scenario” and it would live on whatever happens.

He said: “The EU is imaginable without the UK, but not without Germany or France.

“The UK was not in at the beginning and they are just too peripheral for their membership to be the determining factor. Continue reading

EU Referendum: Massive swing to Brexit – with just 12 days to go

Exclusive: polling carried out for ‘The Independent’ shows that 55 per cent of UK voters intend to vote for Britain to leave the EU in the 23 June referendum

The campaign to take Britain out of the EU has opened up a remarkable 10-point lead over the Remain camp, according to an exclusive poll for The Independent.

The survey of 2,000 people by ORB found that 55 per cent believe the UK should leave the EU (up four points since our last poll in April), while 45 per cent want it to remain (down four points). These figures are weighted to take account of people’s likelihood to vote. It is by far the biggest lead the Leave camp has enjoyed since ORB began polling the EU issue for The Independent a year ago, when it was Remain who enjoyed a 10-point lead. Now the tables have turned. Continue reading

Germany May Be a Bigger Threat to the European Union than Brexit

Destroy to rebuild and retake Europe is the German plan.

Two polls were recently released that call the European Union in question.

A poll in Italy reported that the Five Star Movement (a populist political party that wants to hold a referendum on whether Italy should remain in the European Union) was the most popular political party in the country ahead of local elections scheduled for next month.

On the same day, British researchers who surveyed nine EU countries reported that 45 percent of respondents believed that their country should hold a referendum on whether to remain in the EU. Continue reading

MPs warn voters being ‘conned’ as Brussels keeps plans for EU army secret until after referendum

British voters are being “conned” by Brussels officials who are keeping plans for a European army secret until after the referendum, leading Tories have claimed.

Liam Fox, the former defence secretary who served under David Cameron, told The Telegraph that the ambitions showed the EU is wedded to the “dangerous fantasy” of creating a single defence force.

Another eurosceptic Tory MP said voters were being “deceived” and “hoodwinked” about the true scale of the EU’s drive to create a single army.  Continue reading

It is an EU army that could bring about war

The general has hit the nail on the head: A Brexit will only strengthen the union and allow for a European superstate, or United States of Europe, to act with impunity. Germany, the powerhouse of Europe running this show, is only pretending to care about a Brexit.

With London in, Germany will subdue it. With London out, it’s free reign.

David Cameron says Brexit could lead to continental war. Former Nato secretaries general suggest the EU is a “key partner” for the defence organisation. But ion [sic] the future, the opposite will be true, for this simple reason.  A vote to Remain would embolden Brussels in the goal of ever-closer union. This will include a European army, enshrined in the EU project through the Maastricht and Lisbon treaties. And an EU army would undermine deterrence and cripple Nato, weakening European defences when we face increasing threats from Russia, the Middle East and radical Islam.

A German defence white paper, leaked last week but supposed to be kept under wraps until after the referendum, leaves no doubt of Germany’s intention to drive through the merger of Europe’s armed forces “and embark on permanent cooperation under common structures”. Germany has begun to combine substantial elements of the Dutch forces with their own. Continue reading

Will Brexit Mean the End of the UK’s Control of the Falklands and Gibraltar?

 

Leaders in the territories fear the worst.

Britain is scheduled to hold a referendum on June 23 that will allow the people to vote on whether or not to remain in the European Union.

Many policymakers and citizens want to stay, and many want to leave—impassioned arguments pervade both sides of the debate. Continue reading

Bank of England busy preparing for Brexit vote

The Bank of England is consumed with preparing contingency plans for Britain to leave the EU, with staff across its financial stability, monetary policy and regulatory wings ready to calm any turmoil.

In the days leading up to the June 23 poll, the Bank will hold additional auctions of sterling to ensure the banking system has sufficient funds to operate in a potentially chaotic moment.

Three exceptional auctions of cash have already been planned for June 14, 21 and 28. But stuffing the banks full of cash will not prevent foreigners and UK households and companies dumping sterling in the event of a Brexit vote. Continue reading
