What now for the EU ?

No, but they liked that too, no wonder your a fan.
Evidence is that the popularity of physiognomy grew throughout the first quarter of the 18th century and into the 19th century, pre-NAZI Germany. It still has some scientific validity today apparently. Don't forget about eugenics and the Galton Institute too...British!

Barnier ORDERS Frost to budge or EU chief will CANCEL crunch Brexit meeting in London.

MICHEL Barnier has threatened to call off Brexit trade talks in London this week unless Boris Johnson caves in on fishing.

The Brussels diplomat has told Lord Frost he will not travel to the capital for another “Groundhog Day” round of talks on post-Brexit fishing rights and common standards, according to EU sources. He wants guarantees that his UK counterpart is prepared to budge before committing to further weekend of negotiations. Mr Barnier was said to have issued the ultimatum after growing frustrated with the lack of progress over the main sticking points.

In online talks, he said his team would only travel to London if they believed a deal was possible by next week.

Both sides were forced to hold negotiations via video link after a coronavirus outbreak in the EU’s team.

But the bloc’s negotiators were expected to return to the Capital to resume face-to-face meetings after a period of self-isolation.

It was said Mr Barnier had grown frustrated after a number of “pointless” discussions in which his UK counterpart had refused to agree to the bloc’s demands.

An EU source said: “The British are frankly laughing at us, time is very short. If nothing moves in London we risk going towards no deal.”

Another insider added the Brussels diplomat had made “no decision” on whether to resume in-person wrangling after talks were halted because of a coronavirus scare.

His warning came as European Commission chief Ursula von der Leyen said the wrangling over the EU-UK future relationship could still end in failure.

The European Commission chief said an agreement was far from certain because of the disputes over access to Britain’s coastal waters and common standards, including state aid.

Britain is still refusing to sign up to follow the bloc’s evolving standards and offer European fishermen sufficient guarantees for opportunities, she said.

Mrs von der Leyen said: “These are decisive days for our negotiations with the United Kingdom. But, frankly I cannot tell you today if, in the end, there will be a deal.

“However, there's still three issues that can make the difference between a deal and no deal.

“We will do all in our power to reach an agreement, we're ready to be creative.”

She insisted the EU would have to support a “compromise” at next month’s summit of leaders if they are to get the agreement over the line.

“It is when we managed to join forces that we Europeans can achieve the most. It is when we negotiate hard, and then stick to the compromise found that we move forward fast,” she said.

French President Emmanuel Macron is still holding out for the near-parity access to Britain’s fishing waters.

His hardline stance risks scuppering chances of a Brexit compromise being reached in the coming days.

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.”

Posted on: the "what-now-for-the-eu" thread; and, the "trade-deals" thread.



(it's funny how much this mirrors my response to proclamations from the EU and the few dribbles of scare stories our Remain chums have tried)
 
You can tell so many things from a face, intelligence, sincerity, strength, determination, guilt, pressure...etc. A few key figures in this party of liars show exactly why we are heading into a spiral of doom.

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...

I have no idea what EU policies on immigration will be in ten years time..
Nope, it's you blarting like a girl and swinging your claw hammer around ineffectively. You big, Jew-hating crybaby.
 
Did you mean physiognomy?
No phrenology you daft bugger, a pseudoscience that uses features of the skull to measure mental traits. Perfectly suited for you because you are in everything pseudo, like the pseudofactual drivel that you sprout permanently.
 

Failure to get Brexit trade deal would wipe extra 2% off UK output: OBR​


The independent body had already forecast Brexit would cost Britain 4% of GDP in the long run even if Britain secures a free trade agreement with the EU, compared to it staying in the bloc.

It looks to me like the EU are actually going for a no deal. The UK is in no position to negotiate and the only sensible thing to do is to beg forgiveness and ask to remain in the union. But that will not happen.

Is that one of larger boats in the French fishing fleet getting scuttled for the insurance as they might not be able to keep up the payments due to unforeseen quota reductions?
 
A couple of weeks old but from the French perspective:

Brexit: Macron throws himself into the water for French fishermen​

The French president fears being let go by other European countries on the fisheries issue. He tries to mobilize his troops against the British.​

For Brussels, fishing is certainly important, but the European recovery plan has provided for a fund of 5 billion euros to cover the commercial and human damage caused by Brexit. Concretely, it is about a drawing right of the Member States which could, for example, buy back the boats of fishermen bankrupted by the closure of the British EEZs… A tragic outcome for a sector which is modest in terms of economic weight but whose culture radiates enormously within coastal communities.

Article is in French. Use a translator plug in.
Brexit : Macron se jette à l'eau pour les pêcheurs français

It doesn't seem so long ago that British boats were scrapped on the say so of the EU.

I think I know why you liked the antisemite - Jeremy Corbyn's - face so much:

easy, they will have no policy and will be getting overrun by migrants from Africa that experiencing a massive population boom.

To be fair to the EU, they have spent billions on an armed border force. They seem more determined to keep brown people out than they were in the past.

A bit like the EU parliamentary assembly, really; mainly for white people (with the exception of the cleaners).

Freedom of Movement is only for white majority countries.
 
The EU will be seeing, at the low end, 30 million migrants a year by the end of this decade.

Africas population will double to 2.5 Billion by 2050, and the complacent, rich, prosperous Europe, lands of free benefits, is next door.

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.

Not being flippant but read the first couple of paragraphs and this:

Potential reforms should be considered ahead of the 2024 elections, such as remote voting in specific circumstances, lowering the minimum voting age to 16, common admission, campaigning and funding rules, and the establishment of a European Electoral Authority. The upcoming Conference on the Future of Europe could examine these topics and others, say MEPs, such as transnational lists that would increase the visibility of European political parties and movements, the establishment of collective responsibility for the Commission and the transformation of the Council into a second EU legislative chamber, building on the momentum of youth participation.
