London real estate will benefit because the exodus of banksters for Frankfort, Paris and Dublin will make London real state more affordable. Otherwise what's the benefit? Meanwhile average earners in Frankfort, Paris and Dublin will now enjoy the benefit of real estate being driven up beyond their means in exchange for jobs as lickspitles to the influx of financial princelings in their midsts.
Totalitarianism: a political system in which the state recognizes no limits to its authority and strives to regulate every aspect of public and private life wherever feasible.

Schengen's death rattle (Re: The EU death watch thread

Postby rowland » 07 Jul 2016, 04:39

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/686 ... on-Frontex

In a bid to minimise the effects of the migration crisis on Europe MEPs agreed to replace the union’s border agency, Frontex, with a new European Border and Coast Guard Agency (EBCG), which will be granted more powers.

The passport-free Schengen area - which the UK is not part of - has been blamed on allowing terrorists, people traffickers and economic migrants to travel freely across the continent.

An impressive 483 MEPs voted to bring in the new plans this autumn, while 181 voted against and 48 abstained.


This is one of the biggest things dragging the EU down into oblivion. Jettisoning it will slow the descent. More such reforms would amount to a piecemeal dismantling of the EU. The Eurocrats have gone from denial to bargaining. That's progress.
Big government is for those who can't handle freedom. Political correctness is for those who can't handle reality.

Gun-free zones are where the gun violence happens. Ban gun-free zones before many more get killed. Also, gun violence in Europe is as bad as in US, and getting worse.

The most bigoted people in the world insist that they are the most open-minded, the cruelest people in the world insist that they are the most compassionate, and the most illogical insist that they are the most logical.

Just because Al Gore says there's a planetary emergency doesn't mean there's a planetary emergency. And just because somebody says it's science doesn't mean it's science.

So strengthening the border agency makes the EU weaker? Please let me know more.

Spain will suffer a wane of demand for real estate from British buyers who were extremely active in this market. And in London the weak pound will play its part to attract new foreign investors (according to brokers' forecasts https://tranio.com/united-kingdom/news/real-estate-markets-could-wobble-as-uk-votes-to-leave-the-eu_5152/) The real estate market in Britain may even benefit from heightened foreign interest.



Yes heightened foreign interest..in selling as quickly as possible!

Germany needs to ban axes.

Postby rowland » 19 Jul 2016, 06:58

Seriously, what are axes good for? Chopping firewood? Get a furnace. Cutting trees? Chainsaws are better. Resisting tyrannical government? Guns are better. Killing people on a train? Well...

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news ... an-8445784

The horror began at around 9mpm local time when the teenager stormed a train that was travelling close to Wurzburg in southern Germany.

He then shouted "Allahu Akbar" - which means God is greatest - before launching into the terrifying attack on innocent passengers and then attempting to flee.


Kids these days.

Make Finland great again...

http://www.express.co.uk/news/world/692 ... U-Brussels

The Scandinavian state has taken a tough stance on new arrivals from Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia after officially declaring the three ‘safe countries’.

The rule change has allowed Finnish ministers to deny 77 per cent of asylum applications from Iraqis last month, with those migrants now set to be deported back to the Middle East.

Finland became the 13th EU member state to draw up its own safe countries list earlier this year, following in the footsteps of the UK, Germany and France.

But the policy will cause friction with Brussels bureaucrats, who want a blanket list of ‘safe countries’, taking the power from member states’ hands.

Gotta love that gun control...

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news ... ly-8476548

Reports have named Ali David Sonboly as the 18-year-old gunman who killed 9 people in a shooting spree at a McDonalds and shopping centre in Munich last night.

The taxi driver's son had both German and Iranian citizenship and had been born and raised in the city before last night's rampage after which he shot himself dead.

He used an illegal Glock 9mm pistol and had 300 rounds of ammunition when he went on what police have called a "classic shooting rampage".
