    Nigel Farage says Leavers should prepare for a second referendum now :
  2. Is Prince Harry "defying the odds"?

    There do seem to be some parallels between his mother and Meghan in regard to their charitable work and she seemed to do very well in her first public engagement today. It was just at first glance I saw ..." 36 year old divorcee "...and thought... WTF is he doing. It's easy to forget he is 33 himself now...and if it doesn't work out it's not that big a deal anymore.
  3. I think I've left it a bit late to join the party Enjoy the ride while it lasts
  4. Is Prince Harry "defying the odds"?

    I was tempted to make all kinds of analogies with certain past events but I thought that would be in poor taste so I won't do that but I think you know what I mean. There....I said it...without saying it. The best of luck to them. Stock up on popcorn....metaphorically...because as we know sugar is evil.

    Trump Doubles Down: "Iran Has Been Formally Put On Notice" During a surprise appearance in the White House briefing room on Wednesday, Michael Flynn vowed a forceful U.S. response to Iran’s “destabilizing behavior across the Middle East.” Flynn said Iran “continues to threaten U.S. friends and allies in the region,” with a ballistic missile test launch over the weekend and other actions. Flynn also accused Barack Obama for allowing Iran to become “emboldened.” “As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice,” he said, without elaborating what that meant.
  6. http://terroronthetube.co.uk/2017/01/31/schlomo-sees-berlin-fake-terror/ The Israeli politician and terrorist expert Shlomo Shpiro spends two hours in the Berlin Christmas market (Breitscheidplatz) the day before the event – no doubt, planning the event. Ten minutes before the Berlin Xmas event, he was strolling across that same market. ‘Just a coincidence’? He was sitting on a bus after dusk as a truck (supposedly) raced into the Christmas market and killed numerous people’. As a professor at the Bar-Ilan University in Tel Aviv, Shlomo explained to the German media that he ‘knows a life of constant fear of attacks.’ This was the very day of the Winter Solstice – December 21st. Currently ‘on a research trip,’ Shlomo almost become a witness to the hitherto most devastating attack in Germany: “I was amazed at the low police presence,” he said in an interview. He had seen “hardly any police officers, hardly security guards.” The fact that there would be an attack in Germany was only a matter of time for him. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr34N2pxZd4&t=9s

    Iran Just Officially Ditched The Dollar Following President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim countries, the Iranian government announced it would stop using the U.S. dollar “as its currency of choice in its financial and foreign exchange reports,” the local Financial Tribune reported. Iran governor Valiollah Seif’s central bank announced the decision in a television interview on January 29. The change will take effect on March 21, and it will impact all official financial and foreign exchange reports. “Iran’s difficulties [in dealing] with the dollar,” Seif said, “were in place from the time of the primary sanctions and this trend is continuing,” but when it comes to other currencies, he added, “ we face no limitations.” In a piece published by Forbes, Dominic Dudley contends that this move is significant “in the light of the recent ‘Muslim ban‘” announced by Trump. Iran nationals were added to the order issued by the current U.S. administration, which prompted the Iranian government to vow to stop issuing visas to U.S. citizens. Dudley notes that since 1975, “no Americans have been killed in terrorist attacks in the US by the citizens of the countries included in the ban,” while countries such as Saudi Arabia — “home of 15 of the 19 terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks” — were left out of the list of prohibited countries. Despite the country’s decision to halt the use of the U.S. dollar as its base currency for exchange with other nations, Iran’s top export is oil. In the global markets, oil is mainly purchased and sold in U.S. dollars. This fiscal year, Iran is expected to earn $41 billion from oil sales, with countries like the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and China as their top clients. It’s still uncertain how the country will manage to switch currencies without relying on the American currency. The shift, Dudley notes, “will add a degree of currency risk and volatility and is likely to complicate matters for the authorities.” That's usually the last thing a country does before being bombed back to the stoneage.
  8. EU Declares USA is new Enemy The European Union’s chief BREXIT negotiator, Guy Verhofstadt, told Reuters that Donald Trump is part of a three-pronged attempt to undermine the European Union. His comments reflect just how deranged the EU politicians really are for they will accept no blame whatsoever for any of their own policies that are dictatorial in nature and have sought from the start to federalize Europe while denying that was their goal all along. Verhofstadt told Reuters that the other two threats were radicalized Islam, which they themselves opened their own borders to accept with open-arms, and from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who just said that Europe should stay together. Putin even warned that the EU would not be a global player as is. Verhofstadt actually claimed that all three parties were working against the progress of the EU project. The EU is doomed and their own refusal to address the autocratic anti-democratic policies have sealed their fate. It was the USA that encouraged the formation of the Euro in 1985 at the Plaza Accord – NOT the political surrender of sovereignty of all members to Brussels.

    The noose tightens
  10. It's like a dream come true isn't it Just think...All those little control freaks from countries like Belgium and Luxembourg and Portugal that have found their raison d'etre in the Brussels bureaucracy would have to go back to being nobodies and Germany would have to stop hiding behind them.

    Europe Proposes "Restrictions On Payments In Cash" Having discontinued its production of EUR500 banknotes, it appears Europe is charging towards the utopian dream of a cashless society. Just days after Davos' elites discussed why the world needs to "get rid of currency," the European Commission has introduced a proposal enforcing "restrictions on payments in cash."
  12. Oh yes !...I remember...haha Perhaps I expect too much As for Trump he looks a natural to me...but if the MSM doesn't like you it doesn't matter what you do they will find fault. I think most people see through that now.
  13. I cringe whenever I see Mrs May on any kind of public relations jaunt....she looks awkward in that role. I think most people are prepared to put up with her on the condition she administers Brexit efficiently but I think things could turn ugly for her leadership if it doesn't all pan out. Although having said that I cringe even more when I see Boris doing anything.

    Demonetization and You...the cashless biometric control grid. " Every single thing that you do, everywhere you go, everyone you interact with, being tracked and controlled and data based and surveilled by a central government authority.......this is very soon coming to a country near you "...
