Diplomatic relations between the UK and EU are fast approaching zero degrees Kelvin.
One day after Theresa May not only cemented, but allowed herself Brexit negotiating breathing room with her stunning, yet cunning decision to announce snap elections which would only boost the leverage of her party, Brussles has retaliated and as the FT reports, Brussels is starting to “systematically shut out British groups from multibillion-euro contracts” while urging companies to migrate to one of the 27 remaining EU members.

The EU needs to unify quickly—and the easiest way forward is for a core group to leave the rest behind.
European leaders agreed last week that a core group of European nations must move rapidly toward unity, leaving the rest of the 28-member bloc behind. German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at an EU summit in Malta on February 3, “The history of recent years has shown that there will be a multi-speed EU, and not all members will participate in the same steps of integration.” Continue reading
American tanks of “Atlantic determination” are already on the move in Poland
There are already over 3,500 American soldiers of the Third Armored Brigade and the Fourth Infantry Division plus some military equipment in Europe. The American and Polish military held joint exercises, which are part of the largest deployment of US military forces in Europe after the Cold War initiated by the administration of former US president, Barack Obama, to deter the “growing Russian aggression” in Eastern Europe. According to plans, these actions will continue for not less than nine months. Continue reading
Mario Giro says coming ‘battle of interests’ could have terrible consequences for western world
A senior Italian official has warned that the UK and the European Union are heading into an “economic cold war” over Brexit that could wreak havoc on the west and weaken the continent.
Mario Giro, Italy’s deputy foreign minister, said that while many countries in the EU had said the UK’s vote to leave the EU represented a loss to the union, there were more hardliners in the EU against the UK than it appeared. Continue reading
Having listened stoically for the past two months to accusations without evidence that Moscow “hacked the US election”, and that Hillary’s loss was indirectly due to Putin’s alleged meddling, which resulted in Obama’s expulsion of 35 Russian diplomats, on Wednesday Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov finally snapped, and lashed out at the ongoing US election scapegoating fiasco, saying that leaders and top officials from the UK, Germany, and France have “grossly interfered” in US internal affairs, “campaigned” for Hillary Clinton, and openly “demonized” Donald Trump.
Unlike US accusations of Russian interference, at least Lavrov’s claim can be substantiated with a simple google search of news event in mid to late 2016. Continue reading
DONALD Trump has promised to work quickly with Britain to secure a “quick and proper” trade deal after Brexit, which he predicted would be “great” for the country.
The president-elect said: “Brexit is going to end up being a great thing.
“We’re gonna work very hard to get it done quickly and done properly. Good for both sides.” Continue reading

- Suggests corporation tax and red tape could be slashed to lure in business
- Comes as Theresa May prepares to deliver speech setting out Brexit approach
- Jeremy Corbyn accuses government of risking a ‘trade war’ with Europe
Philip Hammond has delivered a stark warning to the EU that Britain will slash taxes and battle for business if the bloc tries to ‘wound’ us in the looming Brexit talks.
The Chancellor said the UK would do whatever it takes to ‘regain competitiveness’ if it is denied a good trade deal.
The threat comes as Theresa May prepares to flesh out her plans for cutting ties with Brussels – making clear that she is ready to leave the European single market and customs union in order to regain control of immigration. Continue reading
While the article is correct in world war already having begun in the cyber theater, it’s wrong about one thing: World War III was the Cold War. We’re moving towards World War IV.

WORLD War III has already begun in cyberspace, experts said today.
With nations across the globe stockpiling weapons on a scale not seen for decades, 2017 could see the cold war develop into a full scale conflict costing millions of lives.
Already largely due to Vladimir Putin’s sabre-rattling, China’s increasing belligerence and a new USA with Donald Trump at the helm a country as peace-loving as Sweden has been placed on a war footing. Continue reading
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.”
Theresa May urged to boost funding or ration care to head off escalating cash crisis and avoid ‘1990s-style decline’
The body that represents hospitals across England has issued a startling warning that the NHS is close to breaking point because of its escalating cash crisis.
Years of underfunding have left the service facing such “impossible” demands that without urgent extra investment in November’s autumn statement it will have to cut staff, bring in charges or introduce “draconian rationing” of treatment – all options that will provoke public disquiet, it says.

The drama of Britain’s stalled nuclear facility at Hinkley Point C grew more Shakesperean this week, with the Chinese firm involved in its construction now under investigation in the United States for espionage.
It was announced on August 11 that the Chinese CGN firm and engineering advisor Szuhsiung Ho have been indicted on charges of industrial espionage in the United States. The charges relate to alleged attempts to steal nuclear secrets to aid the Chinese nuclear energy program. Continue reading
It is all over, then. In the great Shakespearean tragedy that was Brexit, virtually every player is dead on the stage bleeding from multiple stab wounds. Mostly in the back.
There is only one woman left standing: Theresa May, the Home Secretary who will now take over from Cameron as Britain’s second Prime Minister in history. Cameron confirmed her expected succession on Monday after Andrea Leadsom, May’s only rival in the race for leadership of the Conservative party, pulled out of the contest.
So who is May, and what will her premiership be like? Below are five things you need to know; Continue reading
British Home Secretary Theresa May has unveiled a series of new proposals aimed at combating Islamic extremism “in all its forms.”
The plan is part of the Tory election manifesto, a declaration of policies and programs to be implemented if Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative Party stays in power after the general election on May 7.
The home secretary has pledged that a future Tory government would — among other measures — ban Islamic hate preachers, shut down extremist mosques and review whether Sharia courts in England and Wales are compatible with British values.
May has also promised to crack down on Islamic extremism in British prisons, to monitor how police are responding to so-called honor crimes, female genital mutilation and forced marriage, and to change the citizenship law to ensure that successful applicants respect British values. Continue reading
