This is modern Europe, Britain save yourself, Vote Brexit – This is acceptable behavior now in Calais France? (Video)

I was just speaking to an engineer who is originally from Trinidad who expressed hope that Britain will come to its senses and will vote for Brexit. He has family in the UK and knows well the incompetence of the bureaucrats in Brussels.

How can the Europeans allow this to happen to them? Is the welfare state so worth preserving (good luck with that) that you guys are willing to flush what you have down the toilet?

European Union co-funded Cannes winner “I, Daniel Blake” (A subtle propaganda?)

Cocktails and only the right kind of politics please.

I have to say that I was not in Cannes this year as I had kids to take care of, the dog needed a bath, and my Learjet is in the shop. (Maybe next year.) Nor have I seen I, Daniel Blake. (Which I have no doubt is extremely well done.) But it is interesting that the most celebrated movie of the festival was funded to some extent by the European Union.

Will the cronies lose? Will Britain vote for Brexit? Will the UK leave the European Union? Will sanity win?

Lord, we certainly hope so. Britain should run at a deliberate pace away from Brussels and never look back. Never look back.

Be friendly with Europe. Do business with Europe, (they want to do business with you) but know that you are better Britain, our friend, as a sovereign state.

Spain’s debt now worth more than value of the economy

This is the slow but steady decline of Europe over the last decade. Spain has felt much of the brunt. Not long ago the country was knocking on first tier European status. No longer. But at least Spaniards can find some (cold) comfort in the fact that “Europe” doesn’t end at the Pyrenees as the French used to say anymore. Now it ends, it seems, at the Belgian border.

Business support for Brexit grows as David Cameron looks increasingly desperate, says ISIS wants UK to vote Brexit

If Britain votes to leave the European Union next month it will be a victory for anti-crony forces in the world, which is to say most people in the world. It will be the first time the expansionist technocratic European attempt at a superstate will have been rebuked in a way Brussels can’t dismiss.

However, most of the big power players want the UK to stay in the EU to make life easier for them. The big banks want the UK to stay.

Some personal thoughts on socialism

Socialism and crony capitalism go hand in hand. The bigger the government the more crony the government. The more powerful a government the more likely it will be that corporations, unions, special interest groups, and individuals will want to buy it. You think corporations don’t like regulations? Au contraire mon frere. They often love them. Much more often than not. Heck, they often even write the regs themselves. Do you really think that General Electric wants a small government for instance?

Brussels looks to kill tea as Britons know it if the UK stays within the EU

British tea, it’s a deeply loved institution. But the EU wants to ban certain kettles and toasters for environmental reasons, (the world is going insane) both appliances being key to the afternoon snack.

This was supposed to stay on the down low before the upcoming “Brexit” vote lest it tip the scales away from Britons staying within the German dominated European super state.

Bluster: Obama says UK would be at ‘the back of the queue’ for trade deals if Britain leaves the EU (I doubt that very seriously, Obama’s gone soon.)

This is beginning to get ridiculous. Britain is our most important ally. We have the deepest historical ties with the United Kingdom. Right now many people in the UK are fighting for their country’s very survival. They are seeking to maintain their sovereignty in the face of a European Union which is a bureaucratic and some would argue authoritarian institution. Brussels grows cronies like the cow pasture down the road from my house grows mushrooms. (And both the mushrooms and the EU politicians are full of the same thing.) The EU is a technocratic and often unrepresentative administrative empire and this empire wants to rope Britain in (permanently) to take the country down a peg.
