EU: Deafening Silence concerning Spanish abuses

EU's Deafening Silence

When something happens in Venezuela or Burma (I call it Burma, not the fancy name Myanmar), politicians are all too quick to react and to interfere in internal matters. When the country involved in abuses is an EU country, there is a deafening silence. People beaten on the streets, elected representatives arrested and threat of direct rule doing away with Democracy... just a list of niceties for which the Spanish government of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy is directly responsible, contradicting the view that "65 per cent of Catalans want to remain as part of the Spain". You could say that Mariano Rajoy himself contradicts such view because he panicked and resorted to violence instead of allowing the Referendum to happen normally to prove his point of view. Spain went several decades backwards. Judging by the number of Latin American people fleeing Spain and trying to settle down in Britain, those who are desperately trying to keep the United Kingdom in the European Union are shooting themselves on the foot because reality goes against their assertions about prosperity. What prosperity? Spain has been in doldrums for quite a while to the point that no political party has been able to gather enough votes to form a majority government and for quite a while Spain was de-facto without a real government.

I wonder what the reaction of the British mass media, the European mass media or the world mass media would have been if Nicola Sturgeon and the leaders of the Scottish Pro-Independence Movement and/or the people of Scotland had been treated in the same manner the people of Catalonia and its elected representatives have been treated. The European Union has just brushed Spanish violations of human rights and of political rights under the carpet.

In the EU, nothing is final. The fact that Austria, Poland and Hungary were taken to court when they asserted their sovereign rights on Immigration will generate heated debates. In Germany, Alternative für Deutschland entered the Bundestag as the third largest party and in Austria the Freiheit Partei is bound to be a member of the ruling coalition. Expect further developments.

Democracy Spanish style with politicians arrested, people beaten on the streets and Catalan Parliament suspended

This is Democracy Spanish style with politicians arrested, people beaten on the streets and Catalan Parliament suspended. Following General Franco's example, Mariano Rajoy is the Prime Minister of a very unpopular Partido Popular.

Repression, sooner than later, will lead to civil war and/or to the return of ETA and then Spanish people will be once again carried in body bags. This is the work of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy. Unable to deal with Spain's acute financial problems, unable to gather enough political support to form a majority government, Mariano Rajoy will lead Spain into a bloodbath.

The European Union, out of excessive caution that it might come to regret, is allowing repression in Spain - a member country of the European Union - while the Organisation of the United Nations has ordered an investigation.

Esto es democracia al estilo español con políticos arrestados, gente golpeada en las calles y el Parlamento Catalán suspendido. Siguiendo el ejemplo del General Franco, Mariano Rajoy es el Primer Ministro de un muy impopular Partido Popular.

La represión, tarde o temprano, conducirá a una guerra civil y/o al retorno de ETA y entonces el pueblo de España será nuevamente transportado en bolsas para cadáveres. Esta es la obra del Primer Ministro Mariano Rajoy. Incapaz de lidiar con los problemas financieros serios de España, incapaz de concitar el apoyo suficiente para formar un gobierno de mayoría, Mariano Rajoy conducirá a España hacia un baño de sangre.

La Unión Europea, debido a una cautela excesiva que llegaría a lamentar, está permitiendo la represión en España - un país miembro de la Unión Europea - mientras que la Organización de las Naciones Unidas ha ordenado una investigación.

Nigel Farage's contradictions: one thing in UK and another in Germany


Anne Marie Waters - a very clear message from a very concise and crystal clear politician. Whether she is given the reins of UKIP or not, the fact remains that she tells things as she feels.

Listening to LBC, you might believe that when you listen to Nigel Farage you are listening to two different people. Just this week, Nigel Farage complained that the mass media, the political establishment, and some members of the general public had created a climate of fear that led UKIP supports to hide their views for fear of being excluded, discriminated against, fired from jobs, not hired, or even physically attacked. In fact, Nigel Farage himself spoke about being afraid of leaving his family home because there was a constant threat against his life.

When I look at UKIP's website, I find that there is list of people whose only crime has been to have been at some point in time members of other political organisations and are therefore banned from becoming members of UKIP.

Therefore, UKIP is banning people who have committed no crime while at the same time complaining that UKIP supporters live in fear of being excluded, persecuted or even attacked. This is a lamentable contradiction in terms that Nigel Farage has not rationally justified or explained, and especially when a few days ago Nigel Farage gave his support to Alternative für Deutschland and spoke at one of AfD rallies in Berlin, at the Spandau Citadel, days before an election that gave AfD tens of seats in the Bundestag.

Nigel Farage opposes Anne Marie Waters in the United Kingdom and then supports a political party in Germany that says very much what Anne Marie Waters is saying the United Kingdom. You couldn't make it up.

The Independent: adding fuel to the flames

Alexander Lebedev

Dear Alexander Lebedev,

I know from statements that you have made that you give editors of your publications a free hand to run their publications. Unfortunately, I have to refer to you one particular publication – The Independent - in London.

More than once, I have had to contact The Independent because they have been publishing dangerous nonsense, including misrepresenting what has been said by high ranking officers of NATO. In one particular occasion I had to contact NATO headquarters in Europe and was told that what was reported by The Independent was absolutely untrue.

With regards to Brexit, day in and day out, The Independent is publishing articles that are not conducive to peaceful coexistence. Whether it is about politics or religion, there is a lot of tension and The Independence seems to have an agenda to fuel already existing tensions. Some of the articles are absolutely hysterical.

I know that you run many business at the same time but you should be aware of what your editors are doing and/or allowing others to do on your behalf.

Best regards

Karl Hohenstauffen

Alternative fur Deutschland: One surprise after another

Alternative fur Deutschland: One surprise after another

Founded about four years ago, Alternative fue Deutschland had a very successful rise entering regional governments and now the Bundestag becoming the third largest political party in Germany. From the point of view of the popular vote, more people have dared to challenge political correctness and mass media propaganda and votes for Alternative fur Deutschland have come from all other political forces. The messages are very straightforward and Immigration Issues have favoured Alternative fur Deutschland that says exactly what many don't have the courage to say in public.

Despite winning a fourth mandate, Angela Merkel might have to struggle to form a coalition with political parties that are at odds with each other and might ultimately have to rule with a minority party. Her Leadership has been eroded after barely managing to attract about 33% of the popular vote.

Alternative fur Deutschland is the third largest party in Germany as a whole but in some areas it is the second largest political party and this could be a run to the top. But some public expressions have shown that there are important differences of opinion within Alternative fur Deutschland. There are no differences regarding the main policy issues including Immigration and Islam but there seem to be disagreements in terms how to handle Germany's past.

Whatever the reasons behind Frauke Petry's decision to leave a party press conference, it is important to remark that there are sensitive issues leading to strong disagreements.

BNP: The reality BNP members should know about

BNP: The reality BNP members should know about

Statement of Accounts 2016 Electoral Commission

The British National Party was run from a room in an industrial park in Cumbria until head office was moved to a room above a supermarket. Looking at successive Statements of Accounts presented to the Electoral Commission members and those making donations to the British National Party will be shocked when they know exactly what is being done with their membership monies and donations.

 The picture is just a sample of the full Statement of Accounts presented to the Electoral Commission. As it appears, three people - the Leader Adam Walker, the Deputy Leader Clive Jefferson and the PA to the Leader pay themselves 122,691 Pound a year. But this is not all. Given how the party is run, it is very difficult to justify 162,162 Pound spent in what is labelled in the Statement of Accounts as Branch. For a party that barely appears on the news and given the fact that local branches of the organisation - the few that are still around - self-finance themselves - and given the fact that the party was merely able to stand less than 10 candidates in a General Election and took part in a few by-elections, the amount of 27,948 Pound as Campaigning fund is even more difficult to justify. Then comes 45,381 Pound claimed to have been spent in Commercial Activities.

But apart from the issue that after an initial analysis the numbers that appear on the Statement of Accounts 2016 are not credible, the question arises about where the monies actually go and serious doubts arise about what amount of money the Leader and the Deputy Leader are actually taking home and how much income they are actually declaring in their Income Tax Declarations sent to the Inland Revenue, in which case we could be talking about tax evasion.

Looking at past and present Statement of Accounts, the Deputy Leader Clive Jefferson, who at one point asked the party for monies to be used for private purposes, now appears to have become a lender to the party. Here comes the issue of legacies. Are legacies made to the party as an organisation or are legacies that should be made to the organisation being made to Clive Jefferson that then proceeds 'to lend money to the party'?

What is the situation from a legal standpoint? Is this done in accordance with present legislation regarding political parties and taxation for both political parties and individuals?

However, the bigger issue involves the members and those who continue giving money to the British National Party. Be very much aware of what is being done in your name and of who is benefiting from your hard earned money. If you are somebody thinking about becoming a member, about making a donation or writing a legacy to the British National Party or giving you legacy to the Deputy Leader of the British National Party, think very carefully because apart from publishing a website and organising phantom political campaigns with the few people still willing to stand in Elections, the organisation is being run for the sole benefit a few individuals at the top - less than five - who are cashing in monies that are supposed to be used for political purposes, monies that end up being used for private purposes.

We have no doubt that within the organisation and especially at local branch level there are true believers that are not there for private interest but have a legitimate interest. Unfortunately, the one body that was supposed to oversee the actions of the Leadership and what is done on behalf of the organisation - the National Executive Council - is now namely Clive Jefferson himself that also happens to be the Deputy Leader and National Treasurer.

Home Office: UK/EU Citizens

Home Office: A catalogue of errors is being made public regarding status of EU citizens

Mistakes made by Home Office staff concerning the status of EU citizens living and working in the United Kingdom are being publicised to show that some Home Office staff don't have a clue about Immigration Law.

People who are still duly entitled to live and work in the United Kingdom are having to go to court to counter the ignorance of Home Office staff that are sending threatening letters and unduly taking away rights from people that are fully entitled to live and work in the United Kingdom because the United Kingdom as long as so called Brexit is fully implemented in 2019 will still be a member country of the European Union.

How could this be happening? Aren't Home Office staff properly trained? Do they have an understanding of Immigration Laws and of the status of EU citizens in the United Kingdom?

We know about cases that are mentioned by mass media. What about cases that are not even mentioned by mass media? How many people are being wrongly told that they have no rights?

Whenever and wherever irregularities occur, those involved in committing irregularities should be made accountable and those in charge should be made accountable.
