Correct, the Oirish are also after a chunk of that 5 billion, how else are they going to afford their new andReading another report, Brussels says the 5 billion is an across the board figure to compensate all sectors for post-Brexit losses.
It’s just that Macron seems to be making it all about fish, by demanding the lion’s share to compensate French fishermen.
Haha, typical EU lefty - you better do as we say or else we are taking our ball and going home.Barnier ORDERS Frost to budge or EU chief will CANCEL crunch Brexit meeting in London.
Once you’re calmed down and stopped your hissy fit, can you please show you knew what you were voting for in 2016 by letting us know what the EU’s immigration policies are going to look like in ten years time.
I wonder if HG could provide a guide as to where the threshold is for people to make decisions? Are parliamentary elections are okay, or should that be left to the inteliigensia of correct thinking people like himself and friends (should any actually exist) in case we make a mistake again?Brexit is a mess because it is a massively complex issue that should never have been put to a referendum. The electorate did not have a clue as to the full implications of their vote, and the government are totally out of their depth as they don’t have anywhere near enough relevant knowledge or understanding...
What looks like an hysterical hissy fit to you is only an observation of current events. I was originally going to vote for brexit until I looked into it a bit deeper. Every single claim by the leave campaign was false or pure paranoia without tangible evidence. This remains completely unchanged, unless you can pull one out that has subsequently transpired to be true...Once you’re calmed down and stopped your hissy fit, can you please show you knew what you were voting for in 2016 by letting us know what the EU’s immigration policies are going to look like in ten years time.
French MEP Nathalie Loiseau said: “Much progress has been made. But there are still important disagreements, and the UK must move on them.
“In the same way that we are preparing for reciprocal access to our markets, the UK must accept reciprocal access to our waters for our fishermen.
These are (to me) logical and obvious “next steps”. An elected president and pan-European political parties are sensible ideas.So the EU are seeing the light and may move to a more democratic process of electing the Commission President, not before time allowing the actual voters to select the EU President as opposed to a carve up between parties and countries. This is after the 2019 farce and hopefully will bring further democracy to the EU.
Of course I doubt it will happen by the time of the next EU elections, and if it does and its not the result the EU wants will be kicked in to touch the election after.
The Spitzenkandidaten process is a joke, farce way of doing any thing, another reason to leave.
Parliament aims to enhance democracy and enable full participation in the European political space, based on lessons from the 2019 European elections.www.europarl.europa.eu

It does create a few new problems.
There will be an inevitable clash over legitimacy between an elected president and elected national politicians clash. It’s one of the reasons we don’t have an elected House of Lords.
National political parties will have to demote themselves and give way to pan-European political parties.
Lots of legal challenges over the correct split of powers between national and federal governments (look at the growing pains of the US federal government).
Oh no - that’s a terrible idea; it’s far too British and, ergo, un-European.The next question is, what use is a President, just have an elected house of representatives, the group with the largest set of elected representatives is the majority and the leader of the majority group is President if you want to use that word.
Simple, elegant and works, most times.
