    Sign of the times and the EU.

    Remember how the EU pointed the finger at Viktor Orban for firing tear gas at the migrants and pushing them back, why are they now backing Greece for doing the same thing with those coming through Turkey.

    Seems almost like a little too late type of thing, a foothold situation has already occurred in many countries of Europe, now they have to watch their backs too, not just the front gates...

    It annoys me to change the ethic after Merkel's open arms policy which then turned into free kitchens if they go home. It's gone I think, the globalists dream was taken too far and the recoil is on for years to come. The downfall of the EU I hope comes in time, not because of the want to destruct but because I want individual nation states to be free.

    I am not very familiar with European politics but I watch Stuart Varney on the Fox Business Channel almost every day. He is a British expat who came to the US to become a journalist in the early 70's. He claims he left the UK out of disgust because it became a socialist state around that time.

    This streamer makes me laugh a lot.


    Ash appears on the BBC predominantly and has gone to another level, one I think she needs a slap for, by another woman of course and preferably from a minority so she gets the message.

    Sickens me.

    Hundreds of Yellow Vest protestors clash on the streets of Paris in anti-government demonstration as they defy ban on street crowds due to the coronavirus pandemic

    Violent anti-Government Yellow Vest protests continued in France today - despite a ban on street gatherings because of the killer coronavirus. A crowd estimated at around 800 gathered in central Paris to call for an end to President Emmanuel Macron's administration. By early afternoon fighting had broken out between elements of the crowd and CRS riot police, who fought back with tear gas and baton charges. 'There were 20 arrests for offences related to violent disorder,' said a spokesman the scene, in Boulevard Arago, close to Montparnasse station. It was the 70th Saturday in a row that the so-called Yellow Vests, who are named after their trademark fluorescent motoring jackets, have taken to the streets (pictured, protestors clashing with riot police).

    Would it be wrong for me to wish illness upon them?

    EU clutches at bazooka to stop members going it alone on coronavirus

    BRUSSELS/LONDON (Reuters) - The European Union is considering the drastic step of suspending nearly all incoming travel to the 27-member bloc to combat not only the coronavirus but also the “every country for itself” ethos spreading rapidly through member states.

    The EU’s 27 leaders will hold a teleconference on Tuesday to discuss the proposal, which would cover 30 European countries — all EU member states except Ireland, plus the four non-EU countries that are part of the Schengen border-free zone.

    But at least eight EU states have already taken matters into their own hands, unilaterally shutting out foreign nationals or partially closing their borders to one or more neighboring country. They include the EU’s biggest state, founder-member Germany.

    Those decisions have left Schengen, a pillar of European free movement for 35 years, in tatters, for now at least.

    French President Emmanuel Macron, a passionate integrationist, on Monday condemned the closures after a phone briefing with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other EU officials.

    This is why they build ships and submarines with watertight compartments. Better to all drown with a clear conscience, right?

    Very telling for the EU all this.

    It shows that crisis doesn't pull them together to act as one as they run back to fight the fire. Nigel said this will be their beginning of their end.

    Oversees donations and EU funding ? After all this bailing.

    Nigel might be right on this one too.

    Yeah, these yellow vests had gone irrational. Now they are protesting for the sake of protesting.

    One more reason to replace all the politicians with AI. World would be such a beautiful place without politics.
