Lining their pockets with YOUR money - MEPs charging for ‘ghost offices’ that DON’T exist

BRITISH taxpayers are funding hundreds of “ghost offices” for MEPs.

Each member of the European Parliament gets £3,841, or 4,342 euros, every month which is meant to go towards expenses and includes funding an office in their own country.

But an investigation by The MEPs Project – a freedom of information initiative set up by journalists – found offices for 249 members do not exist, could not be located or requests for the address were refused.

So far just 133 out of the 748 MEPs have revealed what they pay in office rent.

They've ruined Christmas! EU meddling will see UK shelves empty of butter and cream

BRITAIN’S shelves will be bare of cream and butter by Christmas because of EU meddling in markets, farmers warned today.

And what festive cream and butter products there are will be cripplingly expensive – meaning families might have to eat their mince pies dry and skip the brandy butter.

Peder Tuborgh, chief executive of the farmer-owned firm, Arla, said the UK would be facing a butter and cream shortage in the run-up to the festive period.

The boss of the dairy giant said that because of a fumbled EU scheme aimed at reducing production there was insufficient milk being supplied by farmers to create vital dairy products.

Speaking to Radio 4’s Today programme on Thursday, Mr Tuborgh insisted the industry knew there would be a shortage of cream and butter at the end of the year.

One of the key reasons for Britain’s vote to leave the bloc was the notion of regaining sovereignty over trade matters, which all member states cede to the EU Commission which negotiates on their behalf.

Merkel: Europe Still Can’t Rely on Washington

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has reiterated earlier remarks that Europe can no longer rely on the United States.

In claiming that EU members — and Europe as a whole — can no longer rely upon Washington, German Chancellor Angela Merkel has issued a call to arms, saying that the continent must take its fate into its own hands.

Just two days before the G20 summit of world leaders, which will include the attendance of the increasingly polarizing figure of US President Donald Trump, Merkel doubled down on earlier remarks, affirming that Europe "really must take our fate into our own hands," according to the Washington Examiner.

EU and Japan reach free trade deal

The European Union and Japan have formally agreed an outline free-trade deal.
The agreement paves the way for trading in goods without tariff barriers between two of the world's biggest economic areas.
However, few specific details are known and a full, workable agreement may take some time.
Two of the most important sectors are Japanese cars and, for Europe, EU farming goods into Japan.
The outline plan was signed in Brussels after a meeting between the Japanese Prime Minister, Shinzo Abe, and the European Commission president, Jean-Claude Juncker, on the eve of a meeting of the G20 group of leading economies in Hamburg.
It comes hard on the heels of the collapse of a long-awaited trade agreement between Japan, the US and other Pacific ring countries, the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), which was scrapped in January by US President Donald Trump.

Hopefully, when the details kick in, this will be a truly "win-win" situation for both Europe and Japan.

Trump backs NATO defense pact, criticizes Russia

U.S. President Donald Trump affirmed America’s commitment to NATO’s mutual defense pact on a visit to Poland on Wednesday and called on Russia to end “destabilizing activities” and “support for hostile regimes.”

“The United States has demonstrated not merely with words but with its actions that we stand firmly behind Article 5, the mutual defense commitment,” Trump said in a speech in Warsaw, near a monument to the 1944 Warsaw Uprising, when Poles fought for two months against overwhelming German forces during World War II.

On his last trip to Europe, in May, Trump did not state his commitment to the mutual defense clause, causing disquiet among U.S. allies — particularly as the president was highly critical of NATO during his election campaign.

Trump later said in Washington that the U.S. stood by the clause, which states that an attack on one NATO member is considered an attack on all of them. But his remarks in Warsaw were the first time he had done so on European soil.

Huge eruption: Just WHAT was this Pompeii victim doing when he died?

A PHOTOGRAPH of the remains of a Pompeii victim appears to show him in a very compromising position, suggesting he may have been little ‘busy’ when the volcano erupted.

...

The photograph was originally uploaded to Instagram by the Pompeii Archaeological Park, with many users taking advantage of the victim’s rather compromising position on almost all social media platforms.

One wrote: “When you say ‘enjoy until the last moment…’”

Another quipped: “He died holding his loved ones.”

'This can't go on' EU ministers hint they may start turning migrant boats back to Africa

EUROPEAN ministers today suggested they are now considering a radical shift in their migration strategy which would see EU vessels start turning migrant boats around and sending them back to North Africa.

Interior chiefs from Estonia, Belgium and the Netherlands all said Brussels needs to find ways of significantly upping the rate of deportations of economic migrants if it is to survive the latest spike in the continent’s migration crisis.

Eurocrats are now set to draw up a code of conduct, at the behest of Italy, which will govern how NGOs operating search and rescue missions in the Mediterranean should coordinate their operations with EU member states in the future.

A number of prominent Italian politicians have accused charities of acting as a taxi service for migrants and even communicating with people smuggling gangs to coordinate rescues - allegations aid workers furiously deny.

‘Everything wrong with the EU’ MEPs call for end to Parliament's £100m travelling circus

They tore into Strasbourg’s £410 million white elephant as “a symbol of all that is wrong with the European Union” and said it is bad for taxpayers and the environment.

Submerged SUPER-VOLCANO at favourite Brit holiday destination alarms scientists

Volcanologists are warning over the destructive power of the Phlegraean Fields, also known as Campi Flegrei, near to Naples, Italy, as it is showing signs of erupting.

The huge volcano - technically an eight-mile wide caldera - which is mostly underwater in the Bay of Naples, is bigger than the nearby Mt Vesuvius – which is responsible for one of the deadliest eruptions in human history when it obliterated the nearby Pompeii in 79AD.

The ancient volcano last erupted in 1538 although it was only minor, lasting for eight days.

However, its formation some 39,000 years ago saw lava and rocks thrown hundreds of kilometres away in what was the most violent eruption in the past 200,000 years in Europe.

Swedish music festival cancelled after rapes as organisers say 'certain men can't behave'

ONE of Sweden’s largest music festivals will not take place in 2018 after a spate of rapes at this year’s event.

Bravalla festival will not take place next year after its furious organisers said: “Certain men cannot behave.”

It has been an annual event in Sweden attended by more than 50,000 people since 2013.

However this year’s event has been marred by three allegations of rape and at least two other sexual assault reports - all of which took place between last Thursday and Sunday.

There were also 23 reports of sexual harassment, including one in which a 15-year-old girl was targeted in the middle of a crowd.

Poland & the Coal Collapse: We’ll Have to Import from Russia

According to the publication Rzeczpospolita, the Polish company Weglokoks plans to import Russian coal and has already received permission from the government of the country to do so.

This decision is dictated by "a huge backlog in production," notes Rzeczpospolita: this year Poland, which itself is a large coal country, may not have the 5 million tons of coal required to meet demand. Miners should produce 150,000 tons of coal per day, but at present the production capacity is 80-110 thousand tons.

Poland Wants Trump Vow of Ongoing Protection From Russia

Officially, Poland is seeking protection from “Russian activities” for so long as Russia has activities. In practice, the government’s push for “assurances” from President Trump center on getting a commitment to keep US and NATO troops there permanently.

That’s been a priority for Polish governments since they joined NATO, with many envisioning a financial windfall from hosting foreign troops, and openly complaining when that didn’t immediately materialize after they joined.

Poland finally got some US and NATO troops in the past year, with the establishment of a “spearhead” force pointed at the Russian frontier, nominally to respond to any “threats” Russia might make. Polish officials clearly see the risk of losing the foreign deployments if calm is restored.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It looks to me as though the Polish government is attempting to make "financial hay" from a permanent US and NATO deployment; that is the real reason, while alleged "Russian aggression, coupled with a potential invasion, is the "good reason".

Over 5,000 troops and around 100 aircraft involved in drills in Russia’s WestMore:http://tass.com/defense/954501

A massive command and staff exercise in aviation and troops management has begun in Russia’s Western Military District, the District’s press service said in a statement. The military drills involve more than 5,000 troops, as well as around 100 planes and helicopters.

"The drills particularly involve aviation, air defense units, missile forces and artillery, radar troops using electronic warfare, as well as special forces deployed to the Western Military District," the press service elaborated.

During the exercise, the troops are supposed to fight off a simulated enemy’s missile strikes and airstrikes. Combined units will escape the strikes, while aviation units and radar troops will eliminate various targets simulating cruise and ballistic missiles, combat and surveillance unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as warplanes and helicopters.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

It's no accident that these military drills are taking place in the Western part of Russia.

Take a look at the following map:

Map of Russia and Surrounding Countries

Notice that you have Ukraine on Russia's Western border, which it itching for a fight after Crimea held the referendum to petition the Russian Federation to allow it to be accepted as a member in 2014.

Notice that you have Estonia, which is hosting at least 800 British Troops to "deter Russia" (whatever the heck that means)

British Troops in Estonia to "Deter Russia"

Notice that you have NATO troops deployed to Poland this year:

NATO troops deployed to Poland to "deter Russia"

Russia details agenda for Putin's meeting with Trump

Russian President Vladimir Putin will demand the return of two diplomatic compounds seized by the United States when he meets in Germany this week with President Trump for the first time, the Kremlin said, as a senior Russian official warned that Moscow’s patience on the issue was running out.

Putin’s foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said his government showed “unusual flexibility” by not retaliating in December when then-President Obama confiscated the two compounds, in New York state and Maryland, and expelled 35 Russian diplomats as punishment for Moscow’s alleged meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Ushakov urged Washington to “free Russia from the need to take retaliatory moves,” according to The Associated Press.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I hope that these meetings are substantive in nature, and will help to ratchet international tensions down on issues like the US illegal intervention in Syria; removing sanctions against Russia for something it absolutely DID NOT DO (read; the alleged "annexation" of Crimea, which never happened) and the NATO encirclement of Russia.

Trump Hopes To Quietly Steal Putin's Natgas Business In Europe

One month ago, after the shocking collapse of the Gulf nation status quo with the announcement of the diplomatic, naval and financial blockade of Qatar by the Saudi alliance, we said that while it is unclear how this latest political fiasco plays out, one thing was certain: with Saudi Arabia and Qatar suddenly adversaries, any likelihood of a Qatari natural gas pipeline crossing Syria - the fundamental cause behind the Syria proxy war in the first place - was gone.

But one key question remained: why would Europe vacate all hopes of an alternative provider of cheap, copious LNG and concede the role of quasi-monopolist supplier of this critical for Europe resource to Gazprom, and thus Russia whose leverage over the continent would only grow as a result.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The question has to be here; how do you get the US's LNG to Europe, and still keep it affordable?!? That's the one bit the Trump administration has to figure out, to make this work.

Trump to promote U.S. natgas exports in Russia's backyard

President Donald Trump will use fast-growing supplies of U.S. natural gas as a political tool when he meets in Warsaw on Thursday with leaders of a dozen countries that are captive to Russia for their energy needs.

In recent years, Moscow has cut off gas shipments during pricing disputes with neighboring countries in winter months. Exports from the United States would help reduce their dependence on Russia.

Trump will tell the group that Washington wants to help allies by making it as easy as possible for U.S. companies to ship more liquefied natural gas (LNG) to central and eastern Europe, the White House said.

Ireland should consider leaving the EU

Irexit is becoming more of a mainstream idea in Ireland. UK think-tank Policy Exchange has this morning published a paper by Ray Bassett, an experienced Irish diplomat who retired as an ambassador last year. The Irish Diplomatic Service has for decades been in awe of and subservient to the EU. Now the reality of Brexit is making even some diplomats question this fundamental tenet of Irish foreign policy in the face of increased hostility from the European Commission. The financial crisis of 2008 confirmed that a small country on the Western periphery of Europe will never be a priority of the European Central Bank. Membership of the Eurozone has cost Ireland dearly for little benefit, most of Ireland’s external trade is in sterling and dollars…

Norway to ban the use of oil for heating buildings by 2020

The Scandinavian country, which is the world's largest producer of oil and natural gas outside the Middle East, will wholly stop the use of both oil and paraffin to warm buildings from 2020 onwards.

The country, which hopes to ban the sale of all fossil fuel-based cars by 2025, has made a concerted effort to introduce policies which shrink domestic emission of greenhouse gases.

Vidar Helgesenlaid, the nation’s Environment Minister, laid out the plans in a statement, saying: “Those using fossil oil for heating must find other options by 2020.”

The country advises its citizens to research alternatives to oil such as heat pumps, hydroelectricity, and even special stoves that burn wood chips. By some stage, the legislation could be widened to include restrictions on using natural gas to heat buildings.

Lavrov: No visible difference between NATO forces in constant rotation and permanent positioning of NATO forces

NATO has repeatedly increased its military presence in those parts of Europe where there was an agreement not to, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a news conference.

"Your question is about the need for restraint in the issues of arms buildup between NATO and Russia: there are statistics, at least, and no one has denied it, we have presented it more than once that NATO has repeatedly increased its presence in those parts of Europe where it was agreed not to build up the armed forces on a permanent basis. NATO says that this is being done on the basis of rotation, constant ongoing rotation. Therefore, there is no difference between permanent deployment and the rotational deployment in the current NATO plans. We don't see it, "- said the Minister.

He also noted that the number of NATO exercises has increased many times, while the rationale for these exercises is of the nature of deterring the Russian Federation.

A Labour rebel tabled an amendment to the Queens Speech to keep us in the single market and Customs Union. It was defeated by 322 to 101 votes, with 49 Labour rebels voting for it against their leadership’s view. 3 Shadow Spokesmen had to resign.

The BBC who have run a year long campaign to Keep us in the single market did not report this on the radio news, nor the big split in Labour. I wonder why?

Putin signs decree extending ban on Western food imports

Russia has renewed retaliatory sanctions against the European Union after the bloc extended bans against Moscow over the Ukraine crisis.

President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on Friday, extending the counter-sanctions until the end of 2018.

The decree extends a ban on Western food imports for another 18 months.

On Wednesday, the EU formally extended its economic sanctions against Russia, which were imposed in July 2014 after the Crimea region separated from Ukraine and rejoined Russia after holding a referendum on the issue.

In a related move, Russia on Friday said it was suspending its contributions to the Council of Europe for 2017.

The suspension comes after a lengthy dispute regarding delegates from the country who were stripped of authority after Crimea's reunification.

The Kremlin said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov had informed the Council of Europe's Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland of the decision in a phone conversation.

Banking Giant Tells Clients to Prepare for Government Collapse, Third General Election

Citigroup has warned clients that Theresa May’s position as prime minister is “unsustainable”, warning them to prepare for the government to collapse within a matter of months.

The multinational banking corporation believes the parliamentary majority which the prime minister secured through her deal with Ulster’s Democratic Unionist Party is “not comfortable enough for crunch votes”, according to a report in The Times.

“In our view, May’s premiership is not sustainable beyond a few months, perhaps a year at most, and will be under pressure in the face of contentious parliamentary votes from the very beginning,” they said.

Highlighting the “numerous opportunities for parliamentary rebellion” over Brexit, they suggested there could be a “harsh backlash” from what it describes as “the anti-EU British media” if her government gives way on items such as the 100-billion euro settlement demand.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Considering Citigroup's Eurocentric "vision", which is solidly anti-Brexit,no matter how it handicaps small businesses in Europe, this position is hardly surprising.

Eurocrats dropped a Brexit bombshell on Theresa May as they published a list of extensive demands which would see the European Court of Justice (ECJ) and the EU Commission retain their stranglehold on the UK long after our departure.

The dynamite revelations were buried deep in a series of positioning papers published by Michel Barnier’s team this evening and are likely to be ferociously opposed by British negotiators.

Paris ‘No Go Zones’ Where Migrants Terrorize Women Threaten its 2024 Olympics Bid

Paris’s aspiration to stage the Olympic Games in 2024 is under threat partly because of so-called ‘no go zones’ in the city where immigrants from Asia and Africa pester and abuse women.

Areas like Place de la Chapelle, formerly a quiet square behind the Gare du Nord train station, have been transformed in a short space of time into havens for immigrant rough sleepers and drug dealers which are said to be increasingly intimidating for many people, especially women.

According go the Sunday Times of London, since 2015 a huge influx of immigrants – mostly single men – have begun sleeping in parks, on the streets and under the arches of the Metro bridges in northeast Paris.

They have been accused of verbally abusing women in the streets, routinely shouting “Bitch” and “Dirty whore”. Street robbery and drug taking have also become rife.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Were I on the Olympics Organising Committee, Paris would not even be in the running for hosting the Olympics, because of these ongoing problems.
