Europe

Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party set to storm EU elections with shock win

Latest reports indicate that the new Brexit Party, led by Nigel Farage, is on course to cause a political earthquake at next month’s EU Parliament elections, with a new survey showing his anti-EU group ahead of both Labour and the Tories. YouGov, one of Britain’s main polling companies, has Farage’s Brexit Party at 27 percent, five points ahead of Labour and well ahead of PM Theresa May’s Conservatives at 15 percent, with just a few weeks to go until elections on May 23.

The newly-formed party has surged 12 percent in less than a week, with Farage’s former party, UKIP, suffering the most from the pro-Brexit group’s incarnation, plunging seven percent over the same period.

The pro-EU, second referendum advocates, Change UK – The Independent Group, headed by former Tory Heidi Allen, are trailing in the Brexit Party’s wake, polling at a lowly six percent.

Topping the EU election polls is familiar territory for Farage, having led UKIP to victory in 2014, securing 26.6 percent of the vote. His former party nosedived in the YouGov survey under the leadership of Gerard Batten. Farage launched his new party on Friday, claiming they would mirror UKIP on policies, but when it came to their members and candidates up for election, there would be no far-right faction, which has dogged his former party.

One of those candidates standing for election will be Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of Tory Brexiteer Jacob Rees-Mogg. She has twice stood to be a Conservative MP, but has now left after 35 years to join Farage’s army of Brexiteers.

COMMENT

There was a referendum, there was a result and the democratic process was seen to have been done, only it was not. The political classes had NO INTENTION of allowing the will of the people to be fulfilled.  After all, the British public were lied to back in 1975, something that was later admitted. NOBODY voted for a superstate, NOBODY voted for our country to be dictated to by Brussels.

In the meantime, the public have been played by politicians, who have terrified them that we will be in some sort of economical wilderness if we leave without a deal. We do not need a deal, we are the UK, WE ARE the deal!

 

Brexit day, but no Brexit

Did anyone really expect them to let us leave today?

'Today... should have been the day we left the EU': Geoffrey Cox tells MPs it is 'last chance' to deliver Brexit as Boris U-turns AGAIN to say he will back May's deal in decisive vote - after No 10 warns alternative is a FIVE-YEAR delay and an election

  • Theresa May's deal faces a make-or-break vote and will warn not to vote for it would be a 'betrayal' of public
  • PM will throw down the gauntlet to Labour and her own Eurosceptic MPs, amid fears that she risks defeat
  • Boris Johnson has thrown his weight behind the deal - but hardcore Brexiteers say no to 'surrender' to EU
  • If the Prime Minister does lose, allies fear she could be forced to call a General Election as early as next week
  • Mrs May made move after deciding to take step of splitting deal in the hope of getting it through Commons
  • MPs will vote only on the 'divorce' element and not political declaration on future relationship with the EU

So where does this leave us now?

It is my assertion that May was put in to sabotage Brexit. She was a remainer, she has close ties with the Rothschilds who are behind open borders and world government, so there is no way that this woman should have been put in charge of this sensitive process.

The first thing she did was to throw away her majority by calling an election when she had no reason to, then she has allowed nearly THREE YEARS to pass, in which time the fanatical remain camp has been waging a war of fear and disaster in every way possible.  We now have an army of fanatical people desperately upset because we do not want to give up our sovereignty.

Most people do not actually realise that we DO NOT need a deal, WE ARE the deal, the EU needs the UK more than the UK needs the EU, trade is covered by the WTO and trade, employment agreements are not the issue here, the issue is that the political classes do not want us to leave.

On March the 25th, Greece was celebrating its independence day from the Ottomans, (even though they have since handed ultimate sovereignty to the EU) yet the UK had people protesting to RELINQUISH  our independence!

Let that sink in!

Had we left with a hard Brexit back in 2016, the dust would have settled in a matter of weeks and everything would have been running smoothly since. I doubt very much that we will leave now, we will either be fobbed off with a reversible token gesture, or May will call an election which will be won on the basis of a second referendum (on that note, why do we not use the same argument with a general election, after all, 2/3 years later, we could argue that many people who voted have died and all those how have reached 18 since the last election need a voice?) and the next referendum will be won by remainers, not because they are a larger number, but because they are fanatical in their will to give up our sovereignty and at the same time, disillusioned Brexiteers will not bother to vote, after all…………….what’s the point?

Thirty-one migrants picked up in Kato Pyrgos

The Cyprus mail reported: A group of 31 Syrian migrants were picked up near Kato Pyrgos late Monday. Despite the bad weather, their vessel had docked in occupied Limnitis from where the passengers were taken to Pyrgos. Among the Syrians on the boat were a family with two young children aged 5 and 6 and 27 men. The migrants were taken to the Polis Chrysochous police station. Later in the day they are expected to be taken to the reception centre at Kokkinothrimithia in Nicosia.

OPINION

Here we are repeating ourselves again, but I believe that many people do not realise the gravity of what is going on. Italy has turned on their immigrants, which is understandable considering they do nothing but make demands and show nothing but contempt for the countries that take them in. Most of these are now being dumped in Cyprus instead, the numbers have grown exponentially over the last year or two and here we are constantly saying what we think we should be seen to say.

The reality is, that they are being quietly dumped in Cyprus, they are coached on how to behave, what to do and what to say, so they can quietly slip under the radar until they are granted asylum and then they can move on to mainland Europe, where they are counted as ‘European migration’

THIS IS ALL PART OF AN AGENDA!

There are SIX BILLION people in the world, living in abject poverty, how many can we take? Every time we take one in, we encourage a hundred more to make their way here, but that does not matter to the left wing white shaming Snowflakes, who have nothing but contempt for everything that Europe stands for.

We SHOULD NOT take these people in, NONE OF THEM, migrations within Europe is one thing, but this is an invasion and it is not an accident.

Sadly this situation is actually being created and we should direct our attention to those who are causing this. Fortunately, our leaders here in Cyprus are not warmongers, they are just corrupt thieves!

We need to see through the narrative, Europe is under attack, we are under attack, along with everything we stand for. People need to stop saying what they think they should be seen to say, it’s time to call a spade a spade!

MPs seek say on ‘golden visas’

The Cyprus Mail reported………

A LEGISLATIVE proposal is to be tabled to the House plenum in January aiming to give parliament a say in the criteria governing the issuing of passports to foreign nationals under the citizenship-by-investment scheme. The bill, authored by the Greens, is expected to go before the plenary session on January 11, the first session following the Christmas recess.

It stipulates that the criteria for these naturalisations need to be submitted by the government to parliament, before they are published in the government gazette. Currently, the terms and conditions for the citizenship-by-investment programme are determined by the cabinet, with no further scrutiny.

In prior discussions in parliament, the interior ministry said it was opposed to the Greens’ bill, arguing that it would deprive the government of the flexibility in periodically updating or revising the naturalisation scheme. Ruling Disy said also they are against the provisions of the bill, while main opposition Akel are in favour.

The Greens tabled the proposal after another bill they had submitted – mandating the publishing of the names of foreign investors granted passports – failed to muster support in committee. In October, the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development placed Cyprus’ so-called ‘golden passport’ programme on a blacklist of schemes identified as posing a threat to international efforts to combat tax evasion.

My opinion

Is this what it has come to? We sold our soul to the EU and now we are prostituting our land for profit, selling off land that was for the main part owned by Cypriots in the past, much of which was placed in the name of the Church for tax reasons under the Ottomans, but was subsequently kept by the church and now, in partnership with corrupt developers, it is being sold off to people who do not have nexus with Cyprus, people who do not care, people who are only interested in gaining a foothold in Europe.

This is yet another shameful scandal for Cyprus, this administration (and those that preceded it) have NO IDEA about implementing effective and unifying Nation building policies, no....they only care about profit and pulling the ladder up, but meanwhile, hardworking Cypriots struggle with pitiful salaries and overpriced property prices created by a bubble that has no logical basis, no form foundations and one that will surely burst, taking down innocent people with it, but the instigators will not suffer, just as the instigators of the crisis that resulted in the THEFT of innocent people’s bank deposits did not affect them.

I feel that this ‘Golden Visa’ policy’ will not end well. Cyprus is a small island and we cannot keep selling off to non-Cypriots, that is not racist, that is not divisive, it is based on a desire to avoid being overrun and pushed out.

What I find to be the greatest tragedy, on the note of Nation building is that there is not and never has been any inclusive policy to unite Cypriots, to make it easier for them to move to Cyprus, live in Cyprus and most importantly offer their children a state English speaking school. In fact, English was actually REMOVED as an official language back in the 80s, making it even harder for Cypriots who are living outside of Cyprus to return.

What saddens me the most, is that this administration is willing to sell its soul to people who have no interest in Cyprus whatsoever, yet they will do NOTHING to encourage a unified Cypriot Demography. If this continues, Cyprus as we know it will cease to exist and one day, those of us who remain will wake up strangers in our own land.

Scared of Brexit? Don’t be!

Are you falling for the the bullshit that we are being spun by the political classes? We were lied to when our nation was dragged in the 'Common Market' and over 3 or 4 decades our country has been become wrapped up in so much red tape and political dishonesty it does not bare thinking about.

We have a youth who have been convinced that we will be isolated in some sort of poverty trap when we leave (if they let us) but in fact, we are in a different world to the one that gave up when we sold our soul to the EU. There is now a world trade agreement, we do not actually need trade agreements with Europe, they are already in place, but they are being used to scaremonger innocent people. We are worth more to the EU than they are to us....let us not forget that!

After a year of political high drama and turbulence, and given the seeming parliamentary impasse over the Prime Minister’s deal, there are massive anxieties about the consequences of leaving the EU without a withdrawal agreement in place. Will it plunge us into an economic depression as some doom-mongers predict? Will prices rocket and essential goods be in short supply? Will there be riots on the streets as the ugly new social divisions opened up by Brexit play out?

I don’t doubt for one moment these concerns are wholly understandable and we are right to focus on them. But we should also count our blessings. We are not the only country experiencing turmoil — and for many of our neighbours it is far worse. Around Europe, many leaders are spending Christmas contemplating chaos and confusion politically, and widespread public dissatisfaction, growing unrest and even violence. For some, economic winter is already descending.

The level of corruption that has engulfed the EU is beyond imagination, but what are we to expect from an administration that does not have accountability? What are we to expect from a club that makes decisions in private, one that punishes it's members by making them forfeit their pension if they criticise the EU? This 'club' is rotten to the core.

We have seen this club create debt throughout Europe and then force the citizens who were INNOCENT to pay the price. The UK will have absolutely no commercial losses by leaving, despite the scaremongering, but we may just be saving ourselves from the downward vortex that is engulfing the EU, one that will not end well.

There is only one thing we should fear more than leaving, that is remaining.

The END GAME: WHY the WEST is LOST

Cultural Marxism may appear to represent some long lost ideology that fell with the Berlin wall, but it is not, it is very real and it is gradually being enforced on society today. The west, which despite the 'white shaming agenda' is the pinnacle of progress and modern civilisation, is falling at an alarming rate.

The cultural lack of respect for our society, or even our continent has not just opened the doors to an influx of those who despise the very values that we stand for, it has opened the floodgates. Political correctness has been used to gag the masses and thanks to strict policing of social media, it has increasingly become offensive to protect our wonderful society for the fear of offending.

It is not yet clear if it is too late, but my guess would be that it is, because the population of Europe represents such a small fraction of the world's total that on further investigation, it becomes clearly apparent that within a generation or two, the Europe that we know will have gone for ever.

Those on the left, may consider that to be a good thing, within Germany, there have even been politicians celebrating the end of the German Race as a national identity, but do they really understand the full implications of becoming the minority to those who hold our society in contempt?

I believe that we are approaching civilisations' darkest hour, it may be within my lifetime that a European country will become the first to fall in to 'indigenous ethnic minority' and that day, will be the day that the annihilation of everything we hold dear will become recognised.

The political classes in anticipation of a backlash are pushing for further distribution of migrants to the far reaches of Europe, with plans to extend that in to leafy villages so that there is nowhere to hide, nowhere to continue our way of life and nowhere that it will be acceptable to object.

This is without doubt, a snowball effect, as the number grow, as our identity is eroded, as the emerging generations show less and less respect for their heritage, the numbers supporting open borders and globalisation will grow, while the persecuted indigenous Europeans, who are a tiny minority in the order of things, are slowly eradicated.

The truth about migrants

The level of deceit that is being instigated by the political left to cover up the catastrophic effect of mass migration is COLOSSAL! Throughout Europe, there is violent crime that is being 'covered up' in order to protect the greater migration agenda.

Vasilia & Vavilas Re-Visited

There are many stories of Cypriots leaving Cyprus as children and losing touch with friends, family or neighbours for decades.

Cyprus is a small island which has had massive numbers of its population emigrate, due to poverty in the 50s & 60s then another 200,000+ after the Turkish invasion of 1974, making Cyprus the nation with the highest proportion of its population (regardless of ethnic group) living abroad in the world.

New EU ‘superstate plan’

The foreign ministers of France and Germany have proposed creating a “European superstate” limiting the powers of individual members following Britain’s referendum decision to leave the EU, Polish public broadcaster TVP Info has reported.

German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier

The foreign ministers of France and Germany are due to reveal a blueprint to effectively do away with individual member states in what is being described as an “ultimatum”.

Under the radical proposals EU countries will lose the right to have their own army, criminal law, taxation system or central bank, with all those powers being transferred to Brussels.
