A former Cabinet Minister and Johnson's sister is now claiming that Brexit financiers backing Johnson are doing so for personal financial gain - this has now been put into the hands of the police
It seems Trump and his UK ventriloquists dummy have other things in common other than their incompetence, threat to decency and democracy and CLOWNISH APPEARANCE
Both are under scrutiny for possible criminal activity AT THE SAME TIME - NOW THAT HAS TO BE SOME SORT OF A RECORD
Out feller is way out in front as far as the number of votes that he has lost

The latest and greatest threat to democracy is the suggestion by Johnson that the British State Judiciary should follow the US pattern and become appointed by the politicians
Fascism in large red letters

Philip Hammond in The Times:

”Boris Johnson asserts, ever more boldly, that we will leave the EU on October 31, “with or without a deal”. But as his sister has reminded us, he is backed by speculators who have bet billions on a hard Brexit — and there is only one outcome that works for them: a crash-out no-deal Brexit that sends the currency tumbling and inflation soaring. So they, at least, will be reassured to see no evidence at all that his government has seriously pursued a deliverable deal; still less that it has been pursuing a deal that could get us out by October 31.”

I wonder if any of our Brexit-supporters here could explain to the rest of us precisely how such a crash-out, no-deal Brexit Would benefit the 64 million or so people in the U.K. who don’t have billions staked on it?

I do have to smile sympathetically, too, when I hear Brexiteers saying they “Just want it done and over on 31/10/19”. Of course, even if we crash out on 31/10/19, it’s wont be ‘done and over’, it won’t be ‘the end’ of Brexit, it will be just the beginning. There’s no such thing as a ‘no-deal Brexit’ - the deals will still have to be done. It’s just that, instead of being done pre-Leaving, when we have a strong negotiating position, they will have to be done post-Leaving, when we will be in a far weaker position.

Never have so many been given it straight up the arse by so few.

Raggy - there may be some reported vandalism from the remain side in the 'little helpers' link I gave earlier. Maria Caldwell says her car's tyres were damaged with nails and screws. That is possible. On the other hand when I lived near one of the many areas where building work is going on, I went through about three sets of tyres over a two year period due to nails and screws being driven over. So quite possibly vandalism by leave supporters, but not proven without more information.

But ieven so, it is hardly a threat of rape, or violence, or bricks thrown through windows.

Churchill's clumsy idiocy was responsible for depriving me, at Souvla Bay, of what might have been a wonderful great uncle, who might have been showing this little lad how to play footie in the park in Whitefield and taking me to Prestwich carnival to pay for me on the rides and play roll-a-penny with me and tell me stories and sing some of those ould Irish songs.

27 Sept
"Police in Lewes in East Sussex are investigating a spate of suspected hate crimes committed overnight on Thursday, including the bricking of an anti-Brexit campaigner’s window, antisemitic graffiti on a garden fence and Nazi symbols daubed on a house.
Eugene Gill woke up to find a half brick had been thrown through his kitchen window where he was displaying a “Stop Brexit” poster, residents in The Avenue found "Fuck the Jews Soros's Whores Traitor's [sic]" sprayed in 2ft-high red letters along a fence, and a wall on Paddock Close was sprayed with the slogan: "Save Old Sussex Kill a DFL SOS" with the S’s written in the style of the Nazi SS logo. DFL is a derogatory term for someone who has moved down from London to the South Downs market town."

WHAT JOHNSON'S SISTER SAID
Well worth a read, especially how her brother "honoured Jo Cox's memory" tpby using her death to promote something she had given her life defending
These are truely sick bastards

Brexit Secretary Stephen Barclay has reprimanded members of the Government for attempting to present a watered down version of the backstop - "The Backstop has to go"
This indicates that there are no meetings with Europe planned because Johnson has no intention of coming to an understanding with the E.U.
Europe can't agree to removing the backstop betraying its member states and the British Parliament have forbidden leaving without a deal
Johnson is promoting mob rule to replace the democracy he can't control - hence the IMPENDING VIOLENCE
No doubt BORIS'S LITTLE HELPERS will be there to give the boys in blue a hand

Interesting extract from the Supreme Court ruling:
In paragraph 34, the Supreme Court states that its ‘proper function’ under our constitution is to give effect to the separation of powers (which justifies court intervention in relation to prorogation). Then, in what appears to be an innocuous sentence in paragraph 55, it says that it is to be “remember[ed] always that the actual task of governing is for the executive and not for Parliament or the courts.”
In paragraph 46 it says:

    “Ministers are accountable to Parliament through such mechanisms as their duty to answer Parliamentary scrutiny of the delegated legislation which ministers make. By these means, the policies of the executive are subjected to consideration by the representatives of the electorate, the executive is required to report, explain, and defend its actions, and citizens are protected from the arbitrary exercise of executive power.”
The Benn Act then arguably destroys the very principle of parliamentary accountability, which the Supreme Court cited as a cornerstone of the British constitution.

If the Benn Act is unconstitutional, the next question to ask is whether the Court has the ability to rule that it violates constitutional norms and provide a legal remedy.
The way is now open for Boris Johnson to refuse to comply with the Benn Act on the legitimate ground that the Act is unconstitutional and that the courts (and ultimately the Supreme Court) will agree; and even if the Court won’t go so far as declaring it an actual nullity, then at least they will refuse to enforce it.

The Law of unintended consequences kicking in early?

Surely the distinction is that Mr Johnson has been found guilty of acting illegally, by a panel of judges. Mr Trump has not as yet. And of course he won't be, because in impeachment the redict is purely political, and there's a Senate majority that will dismiss all charges, irrespective of any evidence.

Illegal and unlawful are essentially synonymous terms.

I noticed a Johnson defender making that distinction this morning, Raindog. The two words illegal and unlawful have been used interchangeably for several days in much of the media and by politicians, so I'd suggest that trying to hang on to the distinction in the current context is, for now, fruitless. We all know what we mean. I've been saying unlawful, simply because that's what the justices said. But I'm not that bothered.

Do you seriously think it will end with just that? It is the thin end of the wedge. Below an old article but nothing has really changed.

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/9289992/At-the-heart-of-Europes-crisis-is-the-abolition-of-the-nation-state-an

At the entrance to the Visitors Centre of the European Parliament, there is a plaque with these words:

    “National sovereignty is the root cause of the most crying evils of our times….The only final remedy for this evil is the federal union of the peoples.”
They were written by Philip Kerr, later the Marquess of Lothian, who was a British diplomat and arch-appeaser in the build up to the Second World War.

Guy Verhofstadt (at the LibDem conference)
“In the world order of tomorrow, the world order of tomorrow is not a world order based on nation states or countries, it’s a world order that is based on Empires

Those rose tinted glasses you insist on wearing are doing you a great disservice! It seems pretty obvious to me that complete federalism is the end game, with all that it entails. There is plenty of disseminated data floating about in cyberspace that can be pieced together to see what the varlets are up to. You just require the nous to gather it up and ponder! The drawback of having a particular political persuasion is that it infects you with tunnel vision dictated by the party line. It will sleepwalk you into a nightmare.
Take a look about, smell the coffee and try thinking for yourself.

"take back control..vote labour"
No Dick - that should be, "Learn to co-operate with other peoples in order to build a better world for all"
Britain has historically proved it is not fit to be in control of anything and nowadays it it proving itself "not ready for independence" as it used to tall its Colonies

I agree with Steve that it is uncertain how any future vote on Britain would go and , given the right circumstances, I'm not sure how I'd vote on being part of a confederation of States whose political aims I basically oppose (I really can't forget what happened when Greece attempted to adopt policies based on humanitarianism and fairness for all)
The dangerous rise of right wing extremist Populism disguised as democracy makes it imperitive to stay in Europe at present, but if Brtian does leave, it can only be described as democratic if the people who vote for it to do so hare given all the facts and consequences and be allowed to have them discussed openly with the xenophobic hate taken out

It looks as if asked to give an extension the 27 national governments will agree - but I'd be pretty sure that, if there was a referendum across the EU, the popular vote would be to refuse any extension, and wave goodbye.

From The Independent, September 2019

"Does the public support Leave or Remain?

Polls show the public now consistently supports Remain.

The polling has showed Remain in front in a hypothetical re-run of the original referendum since soon after the Brexit vote in 2016.

That's not necessarily a slam dunk - Remain was also ahead in many polls before the original vote - but there has been clear daylight between the two for several years now, and there is evidence the gap is growing.

The most recent results from NatCen's "What UK Thinks" report show Remain on 55 per cent and Leave on 45 per cent.

The running average at Britain Elects, which takes in all relevant polling, shows Remain at 53.3 per cent and Leave at 46.7 per cent.

I'm getting fed up of saying this. The nonsense about fears of a "European army" was one of the many lies propagated during the leave campaign, and, though I've mentioned this umpteen times here, it's depressing to see the lie still being told in this thread (cf post of 01.57pm yesterday). So here it is again: the European Commission can't propose a European army, no matter what the expressed aspirations of EU leaders are. It is beyond its remit.

Not nonsense, not a lie, FACT:An Advisory Mission in Iraq, a Military Training Mission in the Central African Republic, a Maritime Operation in the Mediterranean and an Assistance Mission in Ukraine are among the most recent additions to over 30 civilian missions and military operations launched by the EU since the Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) became a reality almost 15 years ago.EU Factsheet

I believe Europe should have a stronger and more united voice in the world – and it needs to act fast. That is why we must have the courage to take foreign policy decisions by qualified majority. And to stand united behind them.

The cornerstone of our collective defence will always be NATO. We will stay transatlantic and we have to become more European. This is why we created the European Defence Union. Our work for our European Union of security and defence is embedded in comprehensive security. Stabilisation always comes with diplomacy, reconciliation and reconstruction.

Our servicemen and servicewomen work side by side with police officers, diplomats and development aid workers. These men and women deserve our utmost respect and recognition for their tireless service for Europe.

Apparently, the earliest we can have an election now is Bonfire Night (I have my Guido Fawkes effigy ready and I have a little placard next to it which says "I wouldn't give you tuppence for the guy"). But it behoves all the opposition parties to continue to refuse him an election until no deal is off the table and we've extended. That's not frit, Boris dear boy. That's tactics. We don't need any assistance to make you look like an even bigger failing idiot than you already are, but every little helps. It's good to see them all united on this. I was slightly worried that the SNP were getting a bit over-excited about it but all's well. Wouldn't it be good to see that united front continuing. I saw quite a good idea in the paper this morning. Unite under Jeremy Corbyn to win an election with him as PM (there's no alternative right now) on condition that there's a firm commitment to bring in PR as quickly as possible during that first term, then promptly call another election under its terms. In the meantime, that new referendum will keep us where all sane people know where we should be in our best interests, right here in the EU. We live in hope!

Your mistrust of Europe is hardly conducive with the threat of sectarian violence that now hangs over Northern Ireland Stanron
The possibility of a return to that violence was raised by a Northern Ireland Baroness in The House of Lords yesterday
ou people have not shown the slightest interest your Brexit is already doing to other countries and you have compounded that by accusing Ireland of being intransigent on the border issue, despite the increase in paramilitary activity and the recent sectarian attack in Glasgow   
Now you are making Europe the threat in the same way you have made The British Parliament an obstacle to your ambithings
It's about time you people got yourselves a big mirror and contemplate what you are doing to peace and stability

You are expecting me, a Europhobe, to believe two impossible things, although it is after breakfast. First that the EU will not get the veto removed by promising to various opponents that if they vote 'correctly' they will be guaranteed a position on the Commission a few years after retiring and second that the politicians will resist the temptation.

I believe that the veto has little time left.

I'm getting fed up of saying this. The nonsense about fears of a "European army" was one of the many lies propagated during the leave campaign, and, though I've mentioned this umpteen times here, it's depressing to see the lie still being told in this thread (cf post of 01.57pm yesterday). So here it is again: the European Commission can't propose a European army, no matter what the expressed aspirations of EU leaders are. It is beyond its remit. If individual EU countries want to get together to join forces, well good for them, but an official EU army is impossible unless ALL 28 MEMBER STATES AGREE. As the UK does not agree, the whole notion has been effectively vetoed. To put it simply, while we are members, there will never be a European army of the kind being vexatiously postulated by lying brexiteers.

So what's the lie? "As members of the EU we will be forced to participate in a European army" (a lie oft embellished with the threat of our young lads and lasses thereby being vulnerable to conscription).

So what's the truth? There will be no European army, no matter what any EU bigwig says, while we are members of the EU. What's more, if and when we leave the EU it will mean one state fewer demurring at the notion, therefore actually increasing the possibility of its happening.

I really do think that this one should be put to bed once and for all.

Something far more sinister slipped quietly under the wire yesterday when a court ruled that it wasn't illegal for referenda such as this to be funded by foreign money, so letting one of the Brexiteer backers off the hook

A typical pack of lies and distortions by little jimmy. I really cannot understand why he is continually allowed to post garbage.

THE REALITY

The National Crime Agency (NCA) has said it has found 'no evidence that any criminal offences have been committed' after the Electoral Commission referred allegations against Leave.EU and businessman Arron Banks.

Britain's FBI accepted a referral from the Electoral Commission of a number of alleged offences against Leave.EU, its chief executive Elizabeth Bilney, businessman Arron Banks and a company called Better for the Country Ltd.

It claimed that Mr Banks was not the true source of £8 million in loans, and that the company through which they were made, the Isle of Man registered Rock Holdings Ltd, should not have been used to make donations because it is registered outside the UK.

But, in a statement the NCA said it had 'found no evidence that any criminal offences have been committed under PPERA or company law by any of the individuals or organisations referred to it by the Electoral Commission.

'It will therefore take no further action against Mr Banks, Ms Bilney, Better for the Country Ltd or Leave.EU in respect of this specific matter'.   

Banks, nicknamed the 'Bad boy of Brexit', has been dogged by claims he was backed by the Kremlin to help bring about the UK's divorce from the EU - but he has repeatedly branded it 'b*****s'.

What a frighteningly appalling display of goose-stepping violence in yesterday's Westminster gathering - made the Winter Palace Gatherings way back look like tea on the lawn
I fear this is the start of something really nasty

Some time ago. Marine LePen called or an international confederation of ultra-right groups - incidents like these and Russian interference in British and American politics are signs that this is beginning to happen
Even the efforts of a group of locals in Co Galway banded together to block the establishment to a refugee center went international this week and was heralded as a great victory by the European arm-raisers
I have little doubt that, (if he survives), Johnson will turn to Tump (if he avoids impeachment) to create a Brave New World (Adolph and Benito ride again - no prizes for guessing which is which)
Happy days really do seem to be here again

All recent polls on the sibject indicate that there is now a majority against leaving the EU.

Hmmmmmmm!!!!!! LINKS???

Comres sept 2019
Three in five of the British public agree that Parliament has had plenty of time to debate Brexit and we should just get on with leaving the EU (60%), including one third (35%) of 2016 Remain voters.

All recent polls on the sibject indicate that there is now a majority against leaving the EU. That is especially true among the young - in 2016 the voting breakdown among 18-30 year olds was 70-30 in favour of Brexit. The number of young people who have come on the electoral roll since then is several times as large as the Leave majority over Remain back in 2016. The only peole calling for a fresh referendum are Remainers, those opposed to one are virtually all Brexiters.

Reasons for regaining our sovereignty
(I draw your attention to the jean claud junker quote below, before you start your 'taking the cuntry' back bullshit)


1)Defence:
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/mar/08/jean-claude-juncker-calls-for-eu-army-european-commission-miltary

https://www.politico.eu/article/angela-merkel-emmanuel-macron-eu-army-to-complement-nato/

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/eu-army-angela-merkel-macron-germany-france-military-european-commission-juncker
2) Common Foreign Policy
https://www.ecfr.eu/article/commentary_prominent_europeans_call_change_in_approach_eu_foreign_policy

https://www.cer.eu/publications/archive/policy-brief/2019/should-eu-make-foreign-policy-decisions-majority-voting
Common Taxation or harmonisation
https://www.irishtimes.com/business/economy/eu-commission-pushes-ahead-with-plan-to-end-unanimity-on-tax-1.3746080

and to clarify the nature of the beast:Jean-Claude Juncker's most outrageous political quotations:
1) On Greece's economic meltdown in 2011
"When it becomes serious, you have to lie.

2) On EU monetary policy
"I'm ready to be insulted as being insufficiently democratic, but I want to be serious ... I am for secret, dark debates"

3)On British calls for a referendum over Lisbon Treaty
“Of course there will be transfers of sovereignty. But would I be intelligent to draw the attention of public opinion to this fact?,”

4) On the introduction of the euro
"We decide on something, leave it lying around, and wait and see what happens. If no one kicks up a fuss, because most people don't understand what has been decided, we continue step by step until there is no turning back."

5) On eurozone economic policy and democracy
“We all know what to do, we just don't know how to get re-elected after we've done it”

All the above are individually reason enough to want out of the EU, but the remainiacs simply refuse to acknowledge these facts and simply deny them!
