re: Post EU Referendum
 
There is no imminent implosion. This is merely wishful thinking of the Dicky boy set, and has been for 40 years.

Unfortunately though, as it's now become fashionable to win referendums and elections with lies and gross distortions of the truth, we are now a step closer to precisely that.

I want to believe that EU members know that it's all just a lot of populist nonsense, but I've been surprised by how gullible the electorate is.

Maybe it's limited to the anglosphere, but hey, twice in a row the world has been blindsided by populist fantasies (although admittedly, they've been anglosphere fantasies so far). Worryingly, the consequences haven't quite had a chance to set in yet, so there's a lot more alternate reality that can be sold before things start to get dicey.

We shall see.

https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...tential-crisis

"The European Union is facing an existential crisis, the president of the European commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will say on Wednesday, as he announces a raft of economic and security plans in the search for common ground in the wake of the British vote to leave.

In his annual state of the union address to the European parliament, Juncker will say commonality between EU member states has never been so low, with governments everywhere quicker to say what they don’t want from Brussels rather than work together."

There you go, straight from the horses mouth,
Or should that be donkeys mouth. :lol:

...and that was before the disastrous Bratislava bust-up were the situation deteriorated from very bad to even worse.

BULGARIANS are growing increasingly angry at the EU, with demands growing the nation should quit the crumbling bloc - just 10 years after joining."

Question are you actually capable of reading any of the links you post ?

I make that at least three times you posted this opinion which as usual has little basis in fact.

At least this link's only 2 months old.... And somewhat more accurate than usual. But still not quite there.

Juncker - State of the Union address 2016

I've highlighted the most important part you missed out.


Our European Union is, at least in part, in an existential crisis.
Over the summer, I listened carefully to Members of this Parliament, to government representatives, to many national Parliamentarians and to the ordinary Europeans who shared their thoughts with me.
I have witnessed several decades of EU integration. There were many strong moments. Of course, there were many difficult times too, and times of crisis.

But never before have I seen such little common ground between our Member States. So few areas where they agree to work together.
Never before have I heard so many leaders speak only of their domestic problems, with Europe mentioned only in passing, if at all.

Never before have I seen representatives of the EU institutions setting very different priorities, sometimes in direct opposition to national governments and national Parliaments. It is as if there is almost no intersection between the EU and its national capitals anymore.

Never before have I seen national governments so weakened by the forces of populism and paralysed by the risk of defeat in the next elections.
Never before have I seen so much fragmentation, and so little commonality in our Union
Maybe there's hope for you yet! :cool:

SHOCK CLAIM: Chemtrails 'will wipe out humans' causing biblical-style floods, says expert


US eco expert Michael Tamez says the little trails of clouds that you see left behind by jet aircraft are more sinister than the average human realises.

And that it's all to do with "Stratospheric Aerosol Geoengineering" that is being kept secret from the public.
Jeez.....
