    What he is doing is undermining the EU.

    The EU was designed to take many countries and combine their economies to create one economy bigger than Americas to trade with China.

    Why?

    To undermine America's leverage and influence on the world. Our economy is so large it dictates the world economy.

    So our "allies" in Europe got in bed with China to create the EU.

    The EU is now china's biggest customer, not America.
    They supply the EU with everything.

    Not by much though. It takes every one of those EU countries working together to exceed our economies size and they are just barely bigger than ours now.

    This is why BREXIT is such a huge deal to the EU. If Britain pulls out completely then the purpose of the EU fails. With them removed América is back to having the largest economy and dictating global economy basically single handedly. Which means our thumb back on top of China again.

    The whole point of the EU was to undermine and shrink the US economy to unseat us as a super power.

    Trump is making moves to completely get Britain out of the EU. He's using trade because that's the EU's biggest weapon. They try to control what goods you are allowed to have and not have in your country as rewards and punishment.

    If Trump can get Britain completely off the EU's tit then the EU fails and other countries leave it as it no longer has the economy size to dictate policy in the world. Making it a failure and a failed experiment.


    Toppling the EU starts with Britain getting free of it.

    The Brits want Brexit - simple as. It warms my heart to see their population putting principle before any thought of personal gain or loss. We won't have any modern day Yeats writing about the Brits "fumbling in the greasy till" when it comes to Brexit.
    Six in 10 Brexit voters say economic damage is 'price worth paying' for quitting EU

    At last a lot of the silly talk and hysteria is dying down and people are seeing how silly the remoaner talk is.More and more EU citizens are realising that Britains got it right and now they wish they could leave as well.

    Brexit article branding Ireland ‘land of puppy farms, dingy bars and drug mule celebs’ sparks anger

    August 11, 2017 , By Gerard Donaghy
    A PRO-BREXIT article, which has branded Ireland a “land of puppy farms, rain-soaked holidays, dingy bars, drugs mule celebs, verbal diarrhoea and squeaky fiddles”, has caused a stir online, with one person reportedly making a complaint to the Met Police.
    The piece for Country Squire Magazine, titled ‘Get Stuffed, Eire’, warns that as Britain is Ireland’s biggest trading partner, Brexit could have ‘devastating effects’ on Ireland.
    Author Jim Browne raises valid concerns for Ireland that Brexit could result in reduced trade between the two countries, higher priced imports from Britain and a brain drain from Ireland.
    However it is the tone of the piece that has shocked readers, with the article branding Ireland “A ‘country’ where the burglars from Britain – with surnames like Kettle and Rafferty – return to build eyesore ‘palaces’ in ratholes like Rathkeale (a small Irish town swollen by the proceeds of crime)”.
    Referring variously to the country as Ireland and Eire, it goes on: “Eire’s history is basically British – before that it was a bunch of warring families and a corrupt church involved in an incessant spiral of gobshiteing and slaying – certainly not a nation.
    “The best things in Eire are all British – amongst them Cadbury’s chocolate, Jack Charlton and the English breakfast.
    “Even their much-heralded patron Saint was a Brit and they had to kidnap the poor fellow.”
    The piece adds that ‘lippy’ Taoiseach Leo Varadkar is “used like de Valera by the Germans” and that the British Government “should pay as much attention to whining Varadkar as it does now to the punctured gasbag Sturgeon”. (continued)

    We sit watching the mess like rabbits caught in headlights. If the Brits can so easily hand over 20 billion of UK Tax Payers money,then why do we seeshortages of policemen,pensioners dying of hypothermia in winter,people on the streets, NHS creaking at the seams etc. etc. It's a tragedy.

    May's Brexit vision is that the UK Leave the EU in name only. All areas of integration that currently exist will be rebadged.

    She is the epitome of weak leadership! What the hell is she doing offering the EU €20bn! Just get the UK out and offer the EU nothing!

    Public opinion in the UK is moving towards the acceptance of a Hard Brexit.



    I am coming to the conclusion that when the two year Brexit clock has stopped ticking the Sun will be producing a front page along the lines 0f the one it produced when the UK told the EEC what to do with its plan for a single currency a quarter of a century ago when Junckers job was held by Jacques Delors.
