MEPs order champagne and scotch to their desks: European Parliament revealed to have alcohol delivery service and special restaurant serving gourmet meals

As well as receiving a salary of over £75,000, MEPs get a 306 euros (£243) daily subsistence allowance to pay for food and drink while away from home.

Vote Leave chief executive Matthew Elliott last night said: ‘This is literally the gravy train that the £350 million a week we send to Brussels is paying for.

‘If we weren’t paying for the fine dining and extravagant cuisine of MEPs we would have more money to spend on our priories like the NHS.

‘Too many in Brussels seem more concerned with their lunch menu than they are with dealing with the challenges the EU is incapable of solving.

‘If we want to take back control of our borders, economy and democracy we have to Vote Leave on 23 June.’

Britain caves in on talks over Turkey joining EU: Leave campaigners say climbdown makes mockery of Cameron's claim country will not join EU until 'the year 3000'

Britain last night caved in on Turkey, agreeing to let it take another step towards full EU membership.

During talks in Brussels, UK diplomats initially resisted allowing the country to open a new phase in its negotiations with the EU. But within only a few hours, Britain backed down.

Leave campaigners said it made a mockery of claims by David Cameron that Turkey is not on course to join until ‘the year 3000’.

Sir Cover-Up 'blocks questions on the EU': Cabinet Secretary accused of 'contempt' after stopping release of information about impact of EU on public services

Tory MPs have accused the Cabinet Secretary of showing ‘contempt for parliament’ by blocking the release of sensitive information about the impact of the EU on public services.

In a strongly-worded letter, four Conservative MPs have accused Sir Jeremy Heywood of ordering civil servants to refuse to answer parliamentary questions that might jeopardise David Cameron’s bid to keep Britain in the EU.

Flashback: How much extra did the UK have to pay the EU?

At the moment the UK is £1.9bn out of pocket, with the promise of further rebates and repayments.

All this reveals the complexity of EU affairs, and the fact that even a Eurosceptic government with no wish to pay any extra ends up having to pay something all the time it is a member of the EU.

Flashback - Price for rejecting refugees: €250,000 per head

The European Commission on Wednesday proposed a new system for enforcing the relocation of migrants around the EU, giving countries that refuse to accept refugees an expensive “pay-to-not-play” option.

The measure, which would set a price of €250,000 per migrant for countries that want to avoid EU-imposed quotas for the resettlement of asylum-seekers, is part of a raft of new proposals aimed at rebooting the EU’s beleaguered strategy for dealing with the migration crisis.

Flashback: Top EU officials see monthly salaries rise above 31,000 euros

Is this Remain's last chance? The EU's top bureaucrat set to wade into the Brexit battle after poll leads for Leave mean he can break a secret deal with Cameron to keep quiet

Jean-Claude Juncker is poised to make a major intervention on Britain's EU referendum after a string of polls handed Brexit a large lead with just nine days to go.

The President of the European Commission had promised David Cameron he would stay out of the Brexit battle for fear of making it look like Brussels was bullying British voters.

But the pair secretly agreed the gloves could come off if Brexit was ahead going into the final week, it was reported today.

Flashback: FURY over £74MILLION wage rise for EU chiefs - funded by OUR taxes

All 55,000 Brussels civil servants are to benefit from the 2.4 per cent salary hike, backdated to July.

This is despite a year marked by a shambolic reaction to the migrant crisis and the stuttering economic performance of the eurozone.

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will get an extra £8,300 next year.

His basic salary will rise to £230,490.68 plus a residence allowance of £34,573.56 to cover the cost of accommodation in Brussels and annual expenses of £12,490.56.

Mr Juncker’s basic pay is 60 per cent higher than the £142,500 annual salary earned by David Cameron.

The commission president is among 10,000 Brussels officials who earn more than the Prime Minister.

Brexit Chances Surge: Live Chart Of Bookmakers’ Odds

Two polls putting Leave well clear of Remain – five points according to yesterday’s Guardian/ICM poll, seven points according to a Times/YouGov poll – have seen bookies slash their odds on Brexit, implying that it’s more likely than ever before – as shown by the chart above. A few weeks ago, the betting markets thought there was an 18 per cent chance of Leave: now it’s 41 per cent.>>>

CHAOS ERUPTS IN PARIS AS RIOT POLICE UNLEASH ON 50,000-STRONG LABOR PROTEST

French police unleashed tear gas and water cannons on demonstrators Tuesday as tens of thousands packed the streets of Paris in an outpouring of opposition to the government's anti-labor agenda.

The CGT labor union, which helped organized the march, hoped Tuesday's mobilization would be the largest since protests launched over new labor standards, which allow employers to more easily fire workers and create precarious, lower paid positions in place of permanent contracts.

"I’ve been to all the demos since March because I want to live in dignity, not just survive," Aurelien Boukelmoune, a 26-year-old technician, told AFP in Paris. "I want the reforms to be withdrawn, pure and simple. Only then will it stop. For the government's sake, they should withdraw the law, otherwise we'll block the economy."

Murdoch Newspaper Urges UK Exit from European Union

According to the YouGov poll for The Times, "Leave" held 46 percent support compared with 39 percent support for "Remain." Undecided voters were 11 percent, while 4 percent won't vote.

Last Monday The Times/YouGov had reported a 1 percent lead for the "Remain" campaign.

In another, though not unexpected, boost for "Leave," media tycoon Rupert Murdoch's Sun newspaper called on its readers to vote to quit the 28-member EU.

Jun 14 07:53

SUN SAYS We urge our readers to beLEAVE in Britain and vote to quit the EU on June 23

WE are about to make the biggest ­political decision of our lives. The Sun urges everyone to vote LEAVE.

We must set ourselves free from dictatorial Brussels.

Throughout our 43-year membership of the European Union it has proved increasingly greedy, wasteful, bullying and breathtakingly incompetent in a crisis.

Next Thursday, at the ballot box, we can correct this huge and ­historic mistake.

It is our last chance. Because, be in no doubt, our future looks far bleaker if we stay in.

EU-Turkey refugee deal illegal, court challenge claims

According to the complaint filed with the Luxembourg-based court last week, the EU is violating international law and its own statutes by sending asylum seekers back to Turkey, The Daily Telegraph reported Tuesday, citing a legal memo sent to member states by the European Council’s legal service. The memo was obtained by the civil liberties website Statewatch.

Luxury hotels, private jets, limos and even EU-branded chocolate: Vote Leave dossier reveals how eurocrats spend £28m of your money on lavish expenses and perks

Eurocrats have lavished tens of millions of pounds on expenses and other perks, including trips to luxury resorts, expensive meals and flights by private jet.

In a dossier published today, the Vote Leave group claims the ‘exorbitant’ expenditure by EU officials also includes Caribbean cruises, thousands of pounds of alcohol and chocolate and team-building days.

The figures were culled from the European Commission’s own website, which lists so-called ‘discretionary spending’.

Pro-Brexit campaigners said the findings showed how Eurocrats were able to live a ‘life of luxury’ at our expense

CYPRUS OFFICIALS IN STEALTH TALKS WITH VICTORIA NULAND ON TURKISH TROOP PLAN

After losing control of the Cyprus Parliament to an increasingly nationalist vote in an election on May 22, Anastasiades has remained behind at the presidential palace in Nicosia, where he met on Tuesday with the NATO official now conducting Cyprus negotiations for the United Nations, Espen Barth Eide. The Cyprus Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, is due to met US Secretary of State John Kerry, on June 13.

So sensitive is the US-Turkish plan for Cyprus that American reporters for Associated Press and Reuters at the State Department have refused to ask Nuland about the talks. Gayane Chichakyan, a Washington-based reporter for the Russian government television company Russia Today (RT), has also refused to lift the news blackout.

Stripped of distractions, it comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error.

EU to Target Internet as Part of Counter-Radicalization Plan

The European Union plans to target the internet in its efforts to try to stop young people developing extremist views.

Interior Affairs Commissioner Dmitris Avramopoulos said Tuesday that the internet is "our most important battleground" against radicalization.

He said, "The recent attack in Orlando perfectly demonstrated (that) the perpetrator was strongly radicalized on his own, purely by using the internet."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There is absolutely no basis for that last comment. But we know the elites are terrified that the people of the world are waking up to the true nature of society. While there is a free internet, the elites cannot lie to the people with impunity. They are losing control, and they do not like it one bit!

The Treasury 'grossly exaggerated' the economic and financial impact of Brexit, says academic review - and Cameron and Osborne are 'treating us like children'

Most economic modelling has found that a Brexit vote in the June 23 referendum would make little difference to Britain's economy, the study by the influential Cass Business School concluded.

It said the Government had ignored waves of research in favour of publishing 'highly prejudiced' reports warning the UK would be poorer by £4,300 per household by 2030 and be hit by an immediate recession.

And in a damning verdict on George Osborne's approach to the referendum campaign, author Dr David Blake, a professor of Pension Economics at Cass Business School at City University London, accused the Treasury of becoming a 'propoganda machine' for the EU.

Both polls by the firm, carried out between June 10 and today, showed Leave on 53 per cent to Remain on 47 per cent. The new data follows a poll last week with a 10-point Brexit lead.

Billionaire George Soros Preparing For Economic Collapse: “Trading Moves Big and Bearish”

Is there really a great collapse coming, and a more permanent shift to Americans and westerners becoming more like serfs?

Why is George Soros selling stocks, buying gold and making “a series of big, bearish investments”? If things stay relatively stable like they are right now, these moves will likely cost George Soros a tremendous amount of money. But if a major financial crisis is imminent, he stands to make obscene returns. So does George Soros know something that the rest of us do not?

[...] Mr. Soros also argues that there remains a good chance the European Union will collapse under the weight of the migration crisis, continuing challenges in Greece and a potential exit by the United Kingdom from the EU.

While Russia has already indicated that the deployment of of Iskander missile systems would be one certain response to neutralize the the anti-ballistic missile defense system, Russia has wasted no time in developing future responses.

'Leave' Takes Shocking 19-Point Lead In Brexit Poll - "If It Happens, Gold Will Be The World's Strongest Currency"

The headlines go from bad to worse for the UK and EU establishment as yet another new poll this weekend, by Opinium, shows "Brexit" leading by a remarkable 19 points (52% chose to leave the EU against 33% choosing to keep the status quo). This result comes after 2 polls Friday night showing a 10-point lead for "leave" which sparked anxiety across markets. This surge in "leave" probability comes despite an additional 1.5 million voters having registered this week (which many expected to increase "remain" support). Further anger towards EU was exposed when former cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith warned that seven new prisons will need to be built in the UK by 2030 to cope with the rising number of migrant criminals (presumedly due to 'staying' in the EU).

What else is the EU elite hiding from us?

With ten days to go until the referendum, how much are David Cameron and our partners keeping back from voters about the EU’s plans for the future?

The question is brought into sharp focus by yesterday’s leaks of British diplomats’ cables, discussing policies not intended to be publicly aired before the vote is safely out of the way.

In one, our representatives in Amsterdam say the Dutch have agreed to co-operate in delaying controversial Brussels announcements until after June 23.

In another, the Foreign Office’s people in Ankara advise ministers to consider offering visa-free access to as many as 1.5million Turks with ‘special passports’, to complement the EU’s plans to open up the border-free Schengen area to Turkey’s population of 80 million.

Brexit vote is about the supremacy of Parliament and nothing else: Why I am voting to leave the EU

Stripped of distractions, it comes down to an elemental choice: whether to restore the full self-government of this nation, or to continue living under a higher supranational regime, ruled by a European Council that we do not elect in any meaningful sense, and that the British people can never remove, even when it persists in error.

For some of us - and we do not take our cue from the Leave campaign - it has nothing to do with payments into the EU budget. Whatever the sum, it is economically trivial, worth unfettered access to a giant market.

We are deciding whether to be guided by a Commission with quasi-executive powers that operates more like the priesthood of the 13th Century papacy than a modern civil service; and whether to submit to a European Court (ECJ) that claims sweeping supremacy, with no right of appeal.

Conservative donor withdraws support over David Cameron's 'irresponsible' EU campaign

One of David Cameron's biggest donors has withdrawn his financial support for the Conservatives and is considering quitting the party over the way the Prime Minister has handled the referendum, the Telegraph can reveal.

Edi Truell, a pensions expert who has donated over £270,000 since 2010, said he will only hand over money if Boris Johnson or Michael Gove take over from Mr Cameron after a Brexit vote.

It came as Priti Patel, a Government minister, accused Mr Cameron of "undermining" the Conservative manifesto by warning that the triple lock on pensions could be at risk if the UK votes to leave.

CYPRUS OFFICIALS IN STEALTH TALKS WITH VICTORIA NULAND ON TURKISH TROOP PLAN

Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades is holding secret negotiations this week with Victoria Nuland (lead image, right), the US State Department official in charge of Turkey, Ukraine and Russia, on a plan to maintain Turkish military forces in Cyprus under the flag of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).

Anastasiades has sent his aide, Nicos Christodoulides (lead image, left), to negotiate in Washington; he met with Nuland on Monday.

After losing control of the Cyprus Parliament to an increasingly nationalist vote in an election on May 22, Anastasiades has remained behind at the presidential palace in Nicosia, where he met on Tuesday with the NATO official now conducting Cyprus negotiations for the United Nations, Espen Barth Eide. The Cyprus Foreign Minister, Ioannis Kasoulides, is due to met US Secretary of State John Kerry, on June 13.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

This is completely insane; what right does the US government have to tell Cyprus that they have to accept a continued Turkish military presence, under NATO command?!?

Shouldn't the Cypriot people have the right to a referendum on such an issue?!?

Apparently, in Barack Obama's, John Kerry's, and Victoria Nuland's world, not at all.

Secret plan to open our borders to 1.5m Turks: British diplomats admit it would be a 'risk' but tell ministers the move would be a 'symbolic gesture to Turkey'

A secret plan to open Britain's borders to 1.5million Turks was revealed today after British diplomats said the move would act as a 'symbolic gesture to Turkey'.

Senior diplomats advised ministers that the EU's proposals to grant visa-free travel to Turkey's 75million population in the borderless Schengen zone could lead to the UK giving the same status to 1.5million 'special passport holders'.

EU officials have also quietly delayed the publication of of documents on the visa-free deal with Turkey until after June 23 to avoid deterring British voters from staying in the EU, according to reports.

It Begins: One European Bank Fails, Another One Needs An Urgent Cash Injection!

Interesting news this week as Belgium-based Optima Bank has been shut down by both the National Bank of Belgium (which also acts as the Belgian regulating body) as well as the ECB. According to the national supervisor, the bank would have been unable to meet its commitments to its clients and was forced to cease all banking activities after some potentially fraudulent transaction were unveiled. It’s surprising to see the main media have tried to keep this silent as even the website of the National Bank of Belgium didn’t bother to issue the press release in English (whereas all other press releases on the home page can be read in English). There’s no statement from the ECB either, nor has this news been translated on the English version of website of the state-owned national television station.

Cheered on by a military audience, Hillary was already assuming the role to which she most ardently aspires: that of Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces.

Greediest snouts in the EU trough: Not sure how to vote? Read about the stinking wealth and hypocrisy of those Brussels fat cats the Kinnocks and it may help you decide

Former Labour leader Lord Kinnock of Bedwellty, his wife Lady Kinnock of Holyhead and son Stephen Kinnock, Labour MP for Aberavon, have all been busy banging the drum for Remain.

It’s amusing to remember, however, that it was not always so in their household. Forty-one years ago, Neil Kinnock was a leading figure in the campaign for Britain to vote to leave the then European Economic Community. He believed then that it threatened British jobs and industry.Now, he is vigorously promoting the opposite view. So what could he possibly have seen on the EU gravy train — which has enriched his family by many millions of pounds — to make him change his mind?

EU referendum: Swedish foreign minister warns Brexit 'could cause break-up of European Union'

Brexit could cause the European Union to break down by triggering efforts by other nations to secede, the Swedish foreign minister has said.

An exclusive poll for The Independent found that the campaign for Britain to leave the EU has opened up a 10-point lead against Remain in a reversal of the position one year ago.

Margot Wallstrom, the foreign minister of Sweden, said other nations could follow the UK with referendums and demands from reform if it votes Out on 23 June.

Sir James Dyson: 'So if we leave the EU no one will trade with us? Cobblers...'

“When the Remain campaign tells us no one will trade with us if we leave the EU, sorry, it’s absolute cobblers. Our trade imbalance with Europe is running at nine billion a month and rising. If this trend continues, that is £100bn a year.”

He jabs at a graph. “If, as David Cameron suggested, they imposed a tariff of 10 per cent on us, we will do the same in return. We buy more from Europe than they buy from us, so we would be the net beneficiary and based on these numbers it would bring £10bn into the UK annually. Added to our net EU contribution, it would make us around £18.5bn better off each year if we left the EU,” he concludes with quiet triumph.

NATO Will Suppress Protests In Poland

On May 18th, 2016, the well-known Polish politician Mateusz Piskorski was arrested on charg-es of spying for “third countries.” Shortly before, he wrote an article that predicted the beginning of mass political repressions against NATO opponents in Poland and Europe as a whole. He was right. Katehon presents the following exclusive translation of his article:

Predictions concerning the upcoming NATO summit in July in Warsaw are beginning to clearly indicate that today the alliance’s goal is first and foremost preventing the emergence of social movements demanding the liberation of Europe from underneath the tutelage of the United States. As can be seen, the Financial Times’ inadvertent uttering of the words of one of the Polish Army’s senior commanders show just what decisions can be expected this summer. These are decisions which completely undermine not only the sovereignty of Warsaw in the field of foreign policy, but also clearly speak to the fact that from this moment on NATO is supposed to be a police force ready to participate in the pacification of eventual social protests or intervene in the affairs of domestic Polish politics.

Asked during the Facebook Live event hosted by Buzzfeed if he was losing sleep over the result, he replied: "Of course."

He went on: "I am very concerned about the outcome of this referendum because I think it is so important for our country. It is bigger than a general election.

"At a general election you pick a team, if you don't like them you can kick them out in five years' time. With this, we are going to live with this decision."

How Finland became a battleground in the Russia-NATO information war

Despite the positive coverage that the alliance receives in the Finnish national mass media, only 22 percent support Finland’s accession to NATO, while 55 percent are against membership, according to one of the numerous polls on the subject conducted in the country. The long history of political-military neutrality that Finland observed in its relations with the Soviet Union and the Western bloc during the Cold War may explain Helsinki’s reluctance to formalize its relations with NATO today. “We are taught in schools how neutral politics kept us away from trouble [during the Cold War],” explained a government worker on conditions of anonymity. Twenty-five years after the end of the Cold War, the government is struggling to keep Finland’s foreign and military policy in balance... NATO’s Strategic Communications Center of Excellence has been studying hybrid warfare and training NATO officials in strategic communication strategies since 2014, according to its official webpage.

Some countries, such as Germany, seem more inclined to favor a soft, pragmatic approach in the event of a Brexit, while others, led by the government of France, are calling for a more punitive response.

Unelected government minister tells voters not to 'overrule their democratically elected MPs' by backing Brexit

An unelected peer has told voters not to defy their 'democratically elected leaders' by backing Brexit.

In a bizarre statement this morning, pensions minister Ros Altmann said the majority of MPs support Britain staying in the EU and said voters should follow their lead by voting Remain in the June 23 referendum.

'They're your democratically elected leaders,' she wrote. Voting Brexit overrules your own MPs.'

...

One Twitter user - accountant Rob Henderson - replied angrily to Baroness Altmann by telling her: 'Extremely disappointed in you. How dare the paupers of the nation have a different view from their masters eh?'

Security minister says Britain would be SAFER from terrorists if we decide to cut ties with Brussels

Britain would be safer from terrorists outside the EU, David Cameron's own security minister has insisted.

John Hayes said the Brussels club's ability to fight extremism was compromised by the 'grand scheming' of bureaucrats.

Trying to coordinate security links through the bloc was a 'distraction' and a 'waste' of effort, he argued.

The claim, in an article for the Telegraph, directly contradicts the view expressed by the Prime Minister and Defence Secretary Michael Fallon on the issue.

EU referendum: No single market entry for Britain after Out vote, German finance minister warns

During an interview in a Brexit-themed issue of German weekly Der Spiegel, he said:

“That won’t work. It would require the country to abide by the rules of a club from which it currently wants to withdraw.

“If the majority in Britain opts for Brexit, that would be a decision against the single market. In is in. Out is out. One has to respect the sovereignty of the British people.”

He also suggested an Out vote could trigger referendums across the Continent.

You can't rule it out. ... How would the Netherlands, which has traditionally been very closely allied with Britain, react, for example?"
