Note that Cameron said "the British people."

The British people duly spoke. 17.4 million said "leave." 16.1 million said "remain."

This was not a "split decision."

The choice has been made.

“Thousands of U.S. ground forces would be needed, even if positioned outside Syria, to support those physically defending the zones. A limited no-fly zone coupled with US ground forces would push the costs over one billion dollars per month.”

Lords could 'delay start of Brexit UNTIL 2020' as fall out from Supreme Court continues

A spokesman for Clifford Chance said: “The Government may be able to secure the passage of its legislation through the House of Commons but not the House of Lords.

"Unlike defeat in the House of Commons, defeat for the Government in the House of Lords would not end Brexit, but it could delay Brexit for at least a year (amendments to the bill passed by the House of Lords but rejected by the Commons could have the same delaying effect)..

“The Parliament Acts 1911 and 1949 allow the House of Commons to override the House of Lords, but only after a gap of a year. That could potentially push Brexit back to mid-2020.”

Bad news Nicola! Sturgeon's EU dream in peril as MEPs brand Catalonia referendum 'ILLEGAL'

NICOLA Sturgeon's dream of keeping Scotland in the European Union were dealt a hammer blow today as Brussels politicians reacted with open fury to Catalonia's independence plans.

Fuming MEPs could not hide their contempt for efforts by the tiny Spanish region to split from the rest of the country and made it plain they would not welcome it into the bloc.

They fired volley after political volley at its plans for an independence referendum, which were touted by three Catalan MEPs at a highly controversial conference in Brussels this week.

The level of anger directed at secessionist politicians in Spain does not bode well for Ms Sturgeon, who wants to haul Scotland out of the UK in order to keep it in the single market.

‘How many referendums do you want?’ Piers Morgan OBLITERATES ‘sneaky’ Remainer Tom Brake

“You’ve taken the position that you want another referendum,” Piers Morgan, 51, probed. “Everyone knows why you’re doing this, you would like to see this overturned. You see this as a sneaky way of overturning it.”

“It’s not a sneaky way if it’s on the front of every newspaper,” the disgruntled politician hit back. “This is the single most disastrous fiasco that’s happened this century.”

Fuming by the guest’s reluctance to accept the 52 per cent majority that voted to leave the EU on June 23, Piers raged: “With the greatest respect, I voted remain but we lost and the majority of the country wanted to leave.

“You might think it’s a fiasco but it’s happened. You can’t have another vote.”

From Yin to Yang – Pussy Riot–3, in Washington

The ascent of Donald Trump is more than a change of tenant of the White House on 1600, Pennsylvania Ave. It is a momentous swing from Yin to Yang, from dark feminine to bright masculine paradigm, from Cybele to Christ. Tremendous resistance to the regime change proves its unique importance.

Pussy Riot–3, in Washington, another obscene attempt to use women and their bodies for political and religious anti-Christian purposes.

If you prefer a more up-to-date comparison, this is a new Pussy Riot. Perhaps you remember there was a Russian group of that name. They were anti-Putin like the American lot is anti-Trump; they blasphemed like their American counterparts; they were guided and supported by Louise “Madonna” Ciccone, who starred in Washington threatening to blow up the White House.

Mainstream British Press Propaganda Ramps Up Dangerous War Rhetoric against Russia

The British press are in full hysteria propaganda mode when it comes to demonising our new greatest threat on planet earth; not climate change, a global pandemic, international terrorism, or America’s new foe in the South China Sea – but Russia.

The Telegraph 31/12/16: “Systemic, relentless, predatory’ Russian cyber threat to US power grid exposed as malware found on major electricity company computer.”

The Independent 13/12/16: “Highly probable Russian interfered with Brexit referendum.”

The Express 15/01/17: “Russians forcing RAF to abort missions in Syria by ‘hacking into’ their systems”

Trump’s Inaugural Address Was Like No Other in History

He is rich enough, and independent enough, and cantankerous enough that he may not get stuck in the swamps of political compromise.

Donald Trump’s inaugural address is going to go down in history as one of the great ones.I say this as a man with 59 years of public speaking experience and a Ph.D. in American history.

Trump’s speech was different from any previous inaugural address. He spoke directly to his political base. He did not try to pull the country together in some kind of vague, pie-in-the-sky, common-ground political rhetoric. He threw down the gauntlet from the very beginning. Standing in front of the Capitol building, surrounded by former Presidents and politicians, he said that everything they had done in the past has been a way to extract power from the American people and to feather their own nests. This, of course, is exactly what they have done. Nobody had ever said this before in an inaugural address.

Trump’s Inaugural Speech – Promises, Hopes and Opportunities

Could 21st century capitalism dump imperialism? Maybe.
Just hours ago Donald Trump was finally sworn in as the President of the United States. Considering all the threats hanging over this event, this is good news because at least for the time being, the Neocons have lost their control over the Executive Branch and Trump is now finally in a position to take action.

The other good news is Trump’s inauguration speech which included this historical promise “We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow”. Could that really mean that the USA has given up its role of World Hegemon? The mere fact of asking the question is already an immensely positive development as nobody would have asked it had Hillary Clinton been elected.

If truth can be said, President Trump has declared a war far more dangerous to himself than if he had declared war against Russia or China.

Trump made it abundantly clear that Americans’ enemies are right here at home: globalists, neoliberal economists, neoconservatives and other unilateralists accustomed to imposing the US on the world and involving us in endless and expensive wars, politicians who serve the Ruling Establishment rather than the American people, indeed, the entire canopy of private interests that have run America into the ground while getting rich in the process.

Watch out for provocations against Russia

Recently, Britain became the voice for a potential war with Russia. First, former NATO commander General Sir Richard Shirreff's book, 2017 War with Russia, came out in May; after that, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson called on the British people to participate in street demonstrations against Russia. Last week, Defense Secretary Michael Fallon stated that war with Russia is not likely in 2017, but Britain would be ready for war against Russia in two years. There is a climbing tension between countries, nothing short of the one the world experienced when Cold War tensions occasionally peaked. British politicians are ignoring the fact that a war between Russia and the Western bloc would drag the whole world into it. Only 100 years ago the world was dragged into a serious war that went on for four years. The ambitions of European politicians thrust the world into an irreversible conflict in three weeks. This conflict was the First World War and led to deaths of 20 million people.
