Mr Brexit,

Bratislava Blues: What next for the bickering EU? - BBC News


At EU summits, leaders traditionally pose for what's known as the "family photo".
But, as is the reality behind most family snaps, these 27 kids are variously bickering, sulking and winding each other up, while Jean Claude Juncker, the helicopter mum, and Donald Tusk, the more laissez-faire dad, fall out over parenting techniques.
Yet these are difficult times in the EU with its Brexit, migrant and monetary woes.
'Turbulent times'
"An existential crisis" said European Commission President Juncker this week.
"Turbulent times marked by crisis and conflict," said European Council President Tusk, the host of today's summit.

a.k.a. How the EUref was won! :p

Politics is more personality than policies these days. Encouraged by the media who focus more on the former than the latter. Look at how much media coverage reality TV contestants get in the popular media compared to the issues that really affect the daily life of Brits.

Yes, we know what happened.

The Walloon Parliament voted against the deal as it was because they had concerns. Those concerns were addressed, so the Walloons voted to accept the changes and the CETA deal was signed 1.5 weeks ago.

But according to the Express, Dutch campaigners now want a referendum on it.

You seemed to enjoy the EU being unable to sign CETA because of regional democracy at the time. Yet details is what democracy is about. Hence why the UK Parliament has a say in our Brexit details.

Remember these?

" It just proves, some say, that the Brits were right to vote leave: it is better to do own trade deals than being held hostage by continental politics and protectionism. “If the EU cannot do a deal with Canada”, Freeland asked, “then who the heck can you do a deal with?” Maria Åsenius, who heads the cabinet of the EU trade commissioner, said about the EU that “we won’t have much of trade policy if can’t get Ceta through”.

Well, other than Brexit the election of Trump is indeed big news. Haven't read anything about Brexit by my facebook friends for example, not much in the German press either but Trump is all over the place.
Farage is not know in Germany at all. I am pretty sure that most wouldn't know what UKIP is either and that most are now OK with the UK leaving the EU. There will be no going down on the knees by the Europeans for Britain. But there will be a lot of effort to make things work with the US. That is the difference between a world power such as the US and a little island on the fringe of Europe ;)

Eu humiliation.

Estonia's government collapses as Taavi Roivas gets vote of no confidence | World | News | Daily Express

"The EU member state’s falling government is now expected to be replaced by the traditionally pro-Russia Centre Party following the collapse.

With a 62-to-28 vote against Roivas, his Reform Party has been pushed out of power, leading to a new government between the Centre Party, the Social Democrats and the IRL."

Much the same impression I get from my Estonian friends.
They were probably just as well of under Soviet control as under the disastrous Eu dictatorship.

Sorry Dick even for you this post is 150% crap.
Being freed from the yoke of Russia, gaining its independence, having democratic elections is living under a disatrous EU dictatorship.
As I said you do post the most unbelievable crap of the first order..

It looks like it's (iron) curtains for the EU :nod:
