DOMINIC LAWSON: The 'Norway Option' has as much life in it as Monty Python's dead Norwegian parrot

Norway, like its fellow EEA members not in the EU (Liechtenstein and Iceland), is a full member of the EU's Single Market. As a result, it must accept the directives of the Single Market.

These rules are decided upon by representatives of the EU member states in Brussels, having been set in train by the legislative machine of the European Commission.

But, being outside the EU, Norway has no say in them and no vote.

This point was made most forcibly by the former Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg as a Remain campaigner in the 2016 referendum. He ridiculed the so-called 'Norway' option as 'fax democracy'.

Norway, he explained, is part of the Single Market 'but they have to wait by the fax machine for Brussels to send them the rules … we would be left powerless and voiceless, waiting, like the Norwegians, by the fax machine'.

If US Quits INF Treaty, Europe Loses

The statement issued by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization on December 4 regarding the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty following the meeting of the foreign ministers of the alliance in Brussels puts the seal on the US decision to withdraw from the pact.

Washington has successfully rallied its European allies. Armed with NATO solidarity, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave Russia a 60-day ultimatum to return to compliance with the Treaty. Pompeo hopes to make Russia the culpable party.

However, quite some time ago, the US had already made up it mind to scrap the treaty. The Congress even made provision in the Pentagon budget for R&D relating to intermediate missiles. But an alibi was needed. In 2002, the US unilaterally withdrew from the ABM Treaty and dealt a body blow to international security without bothering to explain. On the contrary, INF Treaty is vital to European security and an alibi is necessary.

'Slave Law' Overtime Rules Send Hungarian Workers Into the Street in Protest

On Saturday, Hungarian trade unions protested a change in the country's labor code in Budapest, increasing a workers’ allowable overtime from 250 to 400 hours a year in a move union leaders have dubbed as a “slave law.”

Union workers claim that the law, which was proposed by the right-wing Fidesz party, headed by Prime Minister Victor Orban, is a way to increase Hungarian companies' profit at the expense of workers by adding an extra workday per week.

Trump Challenges Macron: EU Army 'Didn't Work Too Well' in WWII

Emmanuel Macron earlier voiced the idea of building a European military so that fellow EU nations could defend themselves from wide-ranging threats. The French leader subsequently came under fire from the White House, which called on him to pay his fair share of NATO membership.

Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to deliver a rebuke to Emmanuel Macron, chastising the French president's ideas of a pan-European army and divisive environmental policies.

Trump scolded Macron for his proposal to create a single European army so that Europe would have a greater military autonomy. The 45th POTUS has repeatedly claimed that many NATO members have not been dishing out enough cash for the alliance's needs.

"The idea of a European Military didn't work out too well in WWI or WWII. But the US was there for you, and always will be. All we ask is that you pay your fair share of NATO," he added.

Theresa May is warned by Cabinet ministers that she will have to quit if her Brexit deal is defeated in Commons vote and she fails to renegotiate better terms with the EU

The Prime Minister is being warned she will have to resign should her crunch Brexit vote end in disaster next week, it has emerged.

Several Cabinet ministers have warned her she is heading for a heavy defeat and urged her to seek fresh concessions from Brussels.

They fear if Mrs May goes ahead with Tuesday's vote and loses by a large margin it will prove fatal for her leadership – and open the door to a softer 'Norway-style' Brexit.

Armoured vehicles bearing EU flag STORM Paris in sign European Army ALREADY created

Riots have been raging across the city for the last few weeks as anger about the high cost of living and increased fuel taxes threaten to topple Emmanuel Macron’s Government.

Shocking scenes today saw riot cops confronting the so-called Gilet Jaunes – after the high-vis yellow vests they have worn.

But one particular video has caused a stir after it was posted on social media.

JEREMY PAXMAN: My dog could have won a better Brexit deal than those forelock tugging drones we sent out to battle Brussels

The outcome of the 2016 referendum was clear.

By a margin of more than one million votes, the British people said they wanted to leave the EU. Yet more than two years later we are in paralysis, faced with a piece of paper that no one wants – and with seemingly no way forward other than to take the Prime Minister’s Deal.

When Mrs May says it is ‘far from perfect’ she is not exaggerating.

Can you imagine Winston Churchill allowing his negotiators to dance the hokey-cokey with a bunch of foreign bureaucrats and then expecting the British Parliament to agree to a half-in, half-out arrangement which continues EU control until the organisation feels inclined to give it up? And which, by the way, makes it impossible for the UK to strike its own trade deals?

Swiss govt brushes off EU deadline for backing new treaty

The Swiss government will seek more political consultations on a draft treaty setting out ties with the EU, it said on Friday, ignoring an ultimatum to sign off by Friday or face punishment. The EU is Switzerland’s biggest trading partner. The cabinet said in a statement that much of the draft – negotiated over more than four years – was in Swiss interests but it would refrain from initialing the pact for now given some differences that remain. It would revisit the subject in spring 2019, it said. EU sources have said Brussels will ban EU-based banks and brokers from trading on Swiss stock exchanges beyond the end of 2018 as a punitive measure should Bern not clearly back the deal by Friday, Reuters reports. That would prompt Swiss retaliation.

NATO Is COMPLETELY VULNERABLE To Russian Electronic Warfare Systems

NATO experts acknowledged the vulnerability of their communications and digital infrastructure to Russian electronic warfare systems and therefore plan to develop a concept of protection against such systems by 2019.

“The recent exercises on the eastern border of NATO, the presence in the Baltic States and the war in Ukraine have demonstrated the success of the Russian strategy of electronic warfare (EW). Both the potential of electronic attacks (for example, suppression) and electronic support (for example, target detection) show that the existing NATO tactical communications infrastructure is vulnerable to EW and will face serious threats,” the document for research of the NATO Scientific and Technical Organization says.

Israel Signs Pipe Deal to Rival Russia as Gas Supplier to Europe

Following two years of negotiations, Israel has signed an agreement with Italy, Greece, and Cyprus to lay the longest gas pipeline in history, Israel’s Channel 2 reported Saturday night.

The pipeline will traverse a distance of 1,242 miles and lie at a depth of between 1.8-to-3 miles. It will provide gas to Europe from Israel’s offshore fields.

PUTIN ANNOUNCED: Soon the end of negotiations with Serbia

Russian President Vladimir Putin expects the negotiations of the Eurasian Economic Union with Serbia on the Agreement on Trade Preferences soon to be completed.

"We expect that negotiations on preferential trade agreements with Singapore, Israel, Serbia and in the future with India and Egypt will soon be completed," Putin said at a meeting of the Supreme Eurasian Economic Council, according to the Russian agency Tass.

Speaking about EEU member states, Putin said that they should consider the idea of creating a common payment infrastructure, which, he said, would improve the stability of the national payment systems of the EEA countries, enabling them to be less dependent on dollars and other foreign currencies.

Irish Senate Approves Boycott of Goods Made in Settlements

The Irish Senate voted, on Wednesday, to pass a bill to boycott the trade and importing of goods originating from illegal Israeli settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories.

The bill was submitted to the Senate by independent Senator Francis Black who hopes that, with support, the vital bill will become law. Palestinian ambassador Ahmed Abdelrazek, along with lawyers who worked on drafting the bill and the legislation’s sponsoring organisations Trócaire, Christian Aid and Ictu (Irish Congress of Trade Unions) all applauded the passing of the bill.

Neo-Nazis push Israel’s bogus anti-Semitism definition at EU

A new European Union declaration could make it harder to criticize Israel as a racist state without being dubbed an anti-Semite.

Politicians in Brussels on Thursday rubber-stamped the document.

The declaration asks all EU governments to “endorse the non-legally binding working definition of anti-Semitism employed by the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance.”

The move, passed by EU member states’ home affairs ministers, has already been condemned by a number of Israeli and French academics.

Russia regrets EU stance on non-deployment of weapons in space - foreign ministry

The Russian Foreign Ministry said it regretted that members of the European Union had abstained from the UN General Assembly vote on two Russian-led resolutions regarding non-deployment of weapons in space. The documents, headlined ‘No first placement of weapons in outer space’ and ‘Further practical measures for the prevention of an arms race in outer space,’ were passed by the UN General Assembly earlier in the day. The assembly also voted to support another Russian-led document on space, headlined ‘Transparency and confidence-building measures in outer space activities.’ "Once again, we are disappointed by the stance of European Union countries regarding both documents. They were again unable to express their own opinion and preferred to abstain," the Russian Foreign Ministry said. The resolution on non-deployment of weapons in space was supported by 128 UN members.

Independent EU Mediation Needed to Solve Incidents Like Kerch Strait Clash - MEP

Situations like the incident with the detention of Ukrainian naval vessels in the Kerch Strait could be solved with the help of independent European mediation, but the policies of EU member states lack common interests to act as one, Mario Borghezio, a member of the EP's Europe of Nations and Freedom Group, told Sputnik.

'A truly independent and authoritative European mediation would be very important in situations like this, but to date, there is no real common European Union foreign policy, based on values and interests that are truly shared by all member states. It is a shame', Borghezio said.

State Dept Says Kerch Incident Should Remind EU Why Nord Stream 2 'a Bad Idea'

The recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine in the Kerch Strait should serve as a reminder to European allies of the United States why the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is a "bad idea," a senior State Department official told reporters in a press briefing on Tuesday.

"I would say the Kerch incident is a reminder that the less infrastructure you have, the less gas infrastructure you have bypassing Ukraine because of Nord Stream 2, the weaker the deterrent – deterrence is to Russian acts of military aggression," the official said in Brussels.

A coalition of some of Europe’s largest film companies and sports leagues have published an open letter to the European Union officials negotiating the final stage of the new Copyright Directive; in their letter, the companies condemn “Article 13,” the rule requiring all but the smallest online platforms to censor their users’ videos, text-messages, photos and audio if they appear to match anything in a crowdsourced copyrighted works database...

Europe unveils plan to reduce dollar hegemony in global trade

The European Commission on Wednesday unveiled its roadmap on expanding the euro’s global role, RBC writes. Brussels seeks to make the European currency more attractive in international accounts and in the global financial system, expand the use of the single currency on the oil and gas markets and in strategic industries. The program documents do not directly talk about plans to break the dollar’s global hegemony, but this is implied, the paper says. The European economy is compared to the US in scale, but the euro still takes a back seat. The Eurozone’s annual GDP per capita purchasing power parity in 2017 stood at $14.9 trillion, while that figure in the US was $19.4 trillion, according to the World Bank, but the dollar plays a more significant role. Meanwhile, Trump’s eccentric policy, including import duties levied on European goods and unilateral sanctions against EU trading partners, forces Europe to think about its own economic sovereignty.

France's Yellow Vest movement strikes a victory for working people across the EU

The French government’s decision to suspend the proposed levy on fuel was a victory for the French people, whose tradition of fighting and struggling for the right to a quality of life consistent with human dignity is centuries old.

In forcing Macron – whose disregard for those at the sharp end of the neoliberal god he worships has been inordinate – to back down, the Yellow Vest movement has rendered working people throughout the EU a great and significant service, reminding them that passivity in the face of injustice only succeeds in inviting more injustice.

Macron’s initial ‘let them eat cake’ refusal to countenance backing down (before, that is, he did back down), proclaiming with the bombast of the mouse to the cat that “People complaining about rising fuel prices are the same ones who complain about pollution and how their children suffer,” will follow him all the way to his resignation or the next French presidential election, whichever comes first.

Nato accuses Russia of breaking nuclear missile treaty

Western military alliance Nato has formally accused Russia of breaching the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which banned land-based nuclear missiles in Europe.

Following a meeting, Nato foreign ministers issued a statement supporting US accusations of Russian violations.

The US has threatened to withdraw from the treaty because of Russian actions.

Russia denied being in breach of the INF deal, saying it "strictly abides" by its conditions.

The deal banned ground-launched medium-range missiles with a range of 500-5,500km (310-3,400 miles).

Ukraine, NATO discuss ban on Russia entering ports of ‘civilized countries’

During NATO Foreign Ministers’ Session, Ukraine proposed to ban Russian vessels from entering other countries’ ports, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin stated on Tuesday during a press briefing in Brussels on the outcomes of the meeting of the North Atlantic Council with Georgian and Ukrainian foreign ministers.

"We have also discussed the need to put an end to the Nord Stream 2, and that it would be the most suitable sanction for Russia. Also, we talked about the possibility of banning Russian vessels from civilized countries’ ports," the Ukrainian top diplomat stated.

Klimkin added that this initiative remains under discussion. "How this discussion will proceed depends on our future talks," the minister said.

The US ambassador to Poland, Georgette Mosbacher, thinks the country plays a key role in the global strategy of US President Donald Trump, she said in an interview with the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita.

“There is no doubt that Russia will not give up provocations, which means that Poland must remain the basis of stability in the region,” Mosbacher told the newspaper. “Poland is a kind of bastion in that region that defends it against Russian aggression.

She added that Poland plays a key role for US security. The strengthening of Western Europe generally influences American security, according to the ambassador.

The non-binding accord was approved in July. The United States backed out last year. EU countries including Hungary, Austria, and Poland have pulled out or expressed reservations.

Legal Advice on Brexit Deal Reveals the 'Unthinkable,' Leaving MPs Furious

No wonder the UK government tried to hide the Legal Advice on the withdrawal agreement provisions, said the Deputy Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) as details on the realities of the backstop have been made available to the parliamentarians.

Theresa May's government suffered an impressive defeat at the House of Commons on Tuesday, when the MPs voted it was in contempt of the Parliament. The government ministers were ordered to publish the full legal advice by Attorney General Geoffrey Cox on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal deal.

The Brexit legal advice revealed "central weaknesses in the Government's deal" and it is "unthinkable the Government tried to keep this information from Parliament," Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said upon the partial release of the document.

Denmark Mulls Sending Criminal Foreigners to Prison Abroad in 'Important Signal'

Not content with designating a uninhabited island to host migrants pending deportation, Denmark is mulling over building special prisons abroad. Lithuania is one of the East European nations that Denmark is currently negotiating with in order to place criminal migrants sentenced to expulsion.

According to Denmark's new policy, criminal foreigners sentenced to expulsion should be imprisoned abroad, Danish Radio reported, citing negotiations that are underway to put this plan into action.

"As soon as possible and by the end of 2019 at the latest, an agreement with a partner country to establish Danish prisons abroad, so criminals sentenced to expulsion will serve their sentences abroad rather than encumber the Danish prison service and Danish society", the Danish draft budget said.

US tries to stop Ireland banning imports from Israel’s settlements

A prominent US politician has lobbied Irish lawmakers to reject a proposed ban on imports from Israel’s illegal settlements.

Peter King, a member of Congress for New York, is among those who have opposed a bill being debated in Dublin.

Although the bill – aimed at forbidding goods from Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank – seeks to uphold international law, King has depicted it as subversive.

King has tried to convince Fianna Fáil, one of Ireland’s largest parties, to withdraw its support for the proposed ban.

DAILY MAIL COMMENT: Britain will never forgive a Brexit betrayal from vain and arrogant MPs that would shatter the integrity of our democracy

In a febrile, fractious Commons yesterday, the Government suffered three defeats in quick succession, each more crushing than the last.

The first two – relating to publication of the full legal advice surrounding the withdrawal agreement – were largely procedural. More embarrassing than truly disastrous.

But the third, in the form of an amendment by arch Tory rebel Dominic Grieve, could have the effect of giving Parliament, rather than the Government, total supremacy in shaping Brexit.

In principle, this may sound admirably democratic. But in a hung Parliament, where the majority of MPs are in conflict with the will of the people and want Britain to remain in the EU, it is a recipe for chaos and betrayal.

True, this vote makes the chances of crashing out with no deal vanishingly small. But it also means that Brexit may never happen at all.

At some point, it is too much. Just as the citizens suffering under Soviet rule finally said no more, the people suffering under social-democratic rule might someday do the same.

Now the people are in the streets, setting fires and protesting the police. -- And it’s not just France. It’s spreading to Belgium and the Netherlands – the building of a European Spring. -- What we see in Paris today might be the end of social democracy as we know it. What comes in its place is what the battle of ideas today is really about.

US Secretary of State Pompeo Gives Speech at NATO Summit in Brussels

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is holding a press conference in Brussels during a summit of foreign ministers of NATO member states.

Earlier in the day, Pompeo addressed US foreign policy, stating that Washington is trying to establish a liberal world order based on democracy.

"We are rallying the noble nations of the world to build a new liberal order that prevents war and achieves greater prosperity for all", he noted.

The diplomat announced that the US would suspend its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

"The United States today declares it has found Russia in material breach of the treaty and will suspend our obligations as a remedy effective in 60 days unless Russia returns to full and verifiable compliance," Pompeo said.

'Migrating Here Is No Human Right' - Swedish MEP Slams UN Pact

While Sweden Democrat Kristina Winberg warned of 'millions of Africans' trying to enter Europe illegally, her compatriots gathered in Stockholm to voice their discontent regarding a major upcoming intergovernmental UN pact that Sweden intends to be part of.

Right-wing MEP and Sweden Democrat Christina Winberg has warned that the UN document called the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), scheduled to be signed in Morocco on December 11, is the first step towards "turning migration into a human right".

In her opinion piece, published by the tabloid daily Aftonbladet, Winberg stressed that the GCM makes no distinction between refugees and migrants, or legal vs. illegal migration.
