After years of war in Europe, European leaders came together to build peace from the ruins led by Churchill.
In his own words"
"We hope to see a Europe where men of every country will think as much of being a European as of belonging to their native land, and that without losing any of their love and loyalty of their birthplace.
We hope wherever they go in this wide domain, to which we set no limits in the European Continent, they will truly feel "Here I am at home. I am a citizen of this country too"."

"In this urgent work France and Germany must take the lead together. Great Britain, the British Commonwealth of Nations, mighty America — and, I trust, Soviet Russia, for then indeed all would be well — must be the friends and sponsors of the new Europe and must champion its right to live. Therefore I say to you “Let Europe arise!” Winston Churchill.

Ein "Europa", in dem Großbritannien Mitglied ist, wäre für Churchill unvorstellbar gewesen. Die Brexiteers können sich eher auf ihn berufen als die Remainer.

Während die Brexit-Party von Farage an Zustimmung gewinnt, macht sich Anne Soubry für ein zweites Referendum stark. Würde es in ihrem Sinne ausgehen, wäre das das Ende der Referenden. Ich denke, Farage freut sich über die Hilfe von Soubry für seine neugegründete Partei.

Sturgeon: Brexit should trigger Scottish independence vote by 2021
Scotland’s first minister says ‘independent nations’ wield more power in EU than Scotland does within the UK.

Scotland should hold a referendum on independence before 2021 if the U.K. leaves the EU, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said.

Announcing plans for legislation setting the rules of a second independence vote, Sturgeon told the Scottish Parliament that the Brexit process had revealed "the limits of Scotland's influence within the U.K." and strengthened the case for splitting from the union.
“A choice between Brexit and a future for Scotland as an independent European nation should be offered in the lifetime of this parliament," the Scottish National Party leader said. "If Scotland is taken out of the EU, a referendum within that timescale must be open to us. That would be our route to avoiding the worst of the damage that Brexit would do.”

Neoliberalism promised freedom – instead it delivers stifling control
The dominant system of political thought in this country, which produced both the creeping privatisation of public health services and this astonishing attempt to stifle free speech, promised to save us from dehumanising bureaucracy. By rolling back the state, neoliberalism was supposed to have allowed autonomy and creativity to flourish. Instead, it has delivered a semi-privatised authoritarianism more oppressive than the system it replaced. ...

... Workers find themselves enmeshed in a Kafkaesque bureaucracy, centrally controlled and micromanaged. Organisations that depend on a cooperative ethic – such as schools and hospitals – are stripped down, hectored and forced to conform to suffocating diktats. The introduction of private capital into public services – that would herald a glorious new age of choice and openness – is brutally enforced. The doctrine promises diversity and freedom but demands conformity and silence.

Much of the theory behind these transformations arises from the work of Ludwig von Mises. In his book Bureaucracy, published in 1944, he argued that there could be no accommodation between capitalism and socialism. ...

England’s SENSE OF SELF. The DISUNITED KINGDOM

On St George’s day, Matthew Durkin argues that Andrew Marr of all people should know the real grievances behind the Brexit vote — English nationalism.
In the rush to define the meaning of the 2016 EU referendum result, veteran broadcaster Andrew Marr kicked off his Sunday morning show three days after with a monologue to set out his thoughts on the vote.
"If the genie of English nationalism is now out of the bottle, it cannot be left up to Nigel Farage to define what that means."

"We’re losing our identity. I love being English and I don’t want to be a European."
Gillian Duffy

The following year, Farage developed the idea further, suggesting in an interview with Andrew Neil that “the English parliament should be in the House of Commons” without MPs from Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland. Neil countered that Westminster could be “the imperial parliament” of the union, with connotations that perhaps highlight the difficulty of squaring national political aspirations with British institutions accustomed to absolute sovereignty. ...

Polling since the referendum shows that one of the strongest predictors of support for Brexit was identifying as English rather than British but, in the adversarial climate of the negotiations, the identity question has been reduced to simplistic exhortations to “believe in Britain”. This leaves a vacuum for those English Brexit voters who, regardless of their view on the EU, wanted England to be a normal European country, not the centre of “Empire 2.0”. ...

As things stand, the United Kingdom is leaving the European Union: but it could just be that, in the process, England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland will become reconciled to finding a new place within it.

How US billionaires are fuelling the hard-right cause in Britain
Dark money is among the greatest current threats to democracy. It means money spent below the public radar, that seeks to change political outcomes. It enables very rich people and corporations to influence politics without showing their hands.

Among the world’s biggest political spenders are Charles and David Koch, co-owners of Koch Industries, a vast private conglomerate of oil pipelines and refineries, chemicals, timber and paper companies, commodity trading firms and cattle ranches. If their two fortunes were rolled into one, Charles David Koch, with $120bn, would be the richest man on Earth.

The Kochs’ chief political lieutenant, Richard Fink, developed what he called a three-stage model of social change. Universities would produce “the intellectual raw materials”. Thinktanks would transform them into “a more practical or usable form”. Then “citizen activist” groups would “press for the implementation of policy change”. To these ends the Kochs set up bodies in all three categories themselves, such as the Mercatus Center at George Mason University, the Cato Institute and the “citizens’ group” Americans for Prosperity. But for the most part they funded existing organisations that met their criteria. They have poured hundreds of millions of dollars into a network of academic departments, thinktanks, journals and movements. And they appear to have been remarkably successful.

As researchers at Harvard and Columbia universities have found, Americans for Prosperity alone now rivals the Republican party in terms of size, staffing and organisational capacity. It has pulled “the Republican party to the far right on economic, tax and regulatory issues”. It was crucial to the success of the Tea Party movement, the ousting of Democrats from Congress, and the staffing of Trump’s transition team. The Koch network has helped secure massive tax cuts, the smashing of trade unions and the dismantling of environmental legislation.

But their hands, for the most part, remain invisible. A Republican consultant who has worked for Charles and David Koch told Mayer that “to call them under the radar is an understatement. They are underground.” ...

... Until now, there has been no evidence that Charles and David Koch have funded organisations based in the UK. But a few weeks ago, a reader pointed me to one line he found in a form submitted to the US government by the Charles Koch Foundation, which showed money transferred to a company that appears to be the US funding arm of a UK organisation. Once I had grasped its significance, I set up a collaboration with the investigative group DeSmog UK. We could scarcely believe what we were seeing. ...

Die Koch Brothers sind das Gegenstück zu George Soros. Natürlich ist Soros gut, die Koch Brothers sind böse, denn sie unterstützen ja die Republikaner.
In Wirklichkeit ist es aber so, dass sich die Großkonzerne gut mit der One-World-Ideologie vertragen - die Grenzenlosigkeit gefällt ihnen und die damit verbundenen größeren "human ressources", die Zerstörung der Solidarität durch identity politics gefällt ihnen, die Entwurzelung der Menschen von ihrer Kultur, Geschichte, Religion, Klasse oder (intendiert) Geschlechtlichkeit gefällt ihnen, da diese Menschen viel leichter manipulieren und zum Konsumieren anregen kann.

Stimme dem zu. "Such instruments of control crush autonomy and creativity. It is true that the Soviet bureaucracy von Mises rightly denounced reduced its workers to subjugated drones. But the system his disciples have created is heading the same way."

Wenn Farage die Zustimmung zu seiner Brexit-Party drastisch senken will, muss er nur ein radikal neoliberales oder gar libertäres Programm vorschlagen. Dann sind als erstes die Labour-Leute weg, dann die Unabhängigen und die wet-Tories. Der Weg der meisten "rechtspopulistischen" Parteien in Europa, egal ob FN, FPÖ oder Lega, war ein anderer. Angefangen haben sie als beinahe Libertäre und geendet als Anhänger des Sozialstaates, der aber eben nur für die eigenen Leute ausgebaut bzw. erhalten werden soll.

US deal damned whether we’re in EU customs union or not
No matter what type of Brexit the UK pursues, Brexiters’ dream of a transatlantic trade deal is going nowhere. The White House is against doing a deal if the UK stays in a customs union with the EU. However, many politicians in Congress are against any deal if we’re outside the customs union and the Good Friday Agreement is damaged as a result.

This damned if you’re in, damned if you’re out problem comes from the way America does trade deals.

Nicola Sturgeon has handed Theresa May a lifeline with her call for a new referendum on Scottish independence
The first minister’s argument is clear: independence is a route to “avoiding the worst of the damage Brexit will do.” In the current climate, this feels like a winning message

Nicola Sturgeon has announced plans to hold a new referendum on Scottish independence. The first minister told the Scottish parliament she will soon introduce legislation to prepare for another vote by 2021 if Scotland is taken out of the EU.

I write this just a stone’s throw away from Holyrood and a short walk from the Edinburgh polling place where I voted in 2014’s historic independence referendum. But now, five years on, everything has changed – or so Sturgeon wants us to believe.
During her speech, Sturgeon suggested that the case for independence is "even stronger now", given the "profound changes" that have occurred since 2014.
She told Holyrood: "With all of our assets and talents, Scotland should be a thriving and a driving force within Europe. Instead we face being forced to the margins, sidelined with the UK."

Whatever your political persuasion, it is hard to argue with the diagnosis that Brexit has materially changed the UK’s political landscape. On the cusp of leaving the EU, the Britain which 55 per cent of Scots voted to remain a part of in 2014 no longer exists.

Brexit has been a political gift to the SNP. 62 per cent of Scots rejected it, in every single region – the most resounding Remain vote of the UK’s four nations. A year on from a barnstorming performance in 2015’s General Election, the referendum result gave the SNP a clear mandate: oppose Brexit at all costs.

Throughout the Brexit process, the Scottish Parliament has found itself ignored and sidelined, despite frequent attempts to engage in dialogue with Theresa May. The Brexit process has also highlighted empty promises that Scots were fed in the run up to 2014’s independence referendum, like the unionist campaign line that “Scotland shouldn’t leave the UK, it should lead the UK”. Aged most badly are the frequent assertions by Better Together, the main unionist campaign group, that the only way to protect Scotland’s EU membership was to reject independence.

So, Menasse, der EUphoriker schreibt also, dass die Champagnerkorken knallten - für unsere Eurokraten nur das Beste -, als das Abstimmungsergebnis 2016 bekannt wurde.

Was hat die EU rausgeschlagen:
- 40 Milliarden Euro "Abgeltungsgebühr"
- Regeln gelten für UK auch in der Übergangszeit, gleichzeitig kann UK nicht mitbestimmen über Regeln
- Streitschlichtung über EuGH, dessen Rechtsprechung bekannt sein dürfte
- Sonderregelung für Nordirland nur mit Zustimmung beider Parteien
(Vertrag über die künftigen Beziehungen zwischen UK und EU wurde auf später vertagt, womit die Regierung May ihren ersten Fehler machte.)

Für die Bremer Politikwissenschaftlerin Schmidt verleiht die "harte Verhandlungsführung der EU-Kommission (...) nun faktisch einen Zwangscharakter." Man hat damit das Exempel, das man statuieren wollte - und dies an einem der mächtigsten Mitgliedstaaten. Man kann sich also vorstellen, was passieren würde, wollte etwa Ungarn oder Dänemark ausscheiden... Das sind Bedingungen, die man militärisch besiegten Staaten auferlegt.

Und weiter: "Der ehemalige Bundesverfassungsrichter Dieter Grimm kritisiert den geringen Spielraum der EU für demokratische Politik aufgrund dieser ‚Überkonstitutionalisierung‘. Viele die Integration prägende Regeln sind nicht verhandelbar, obwohl in der EU Bereiche stärker vereinheitlicht sind als in den Vereinigten Staaten oder Kanada."

Jeremy Corbyn refuses invite from the Queen to attend banquet with 'racist and misogynistic' Donald Trump
Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn has turned down an invitation from the Queen to attend a state banquet in Buckingham Palace with US President Donald Trump.

In a statement published on Friday, Corbyn said that Prime Minister Theresa May should not be "rolling out the red carpet" for a president who expresses "racist and misogynistic" views.

"Theresa May should not be rolling out the red carpet for a state visit to honour a President who rips up vital international treaties, backs climate change denial and uses racist and misogynist rhetoric," Corbyn said.

Will a big defeat for the Tories in this week’s local elections force Theresa May to rethink on Brexit?
The Conservatives are braced for a bloody nose in this week’s local government elections.

Most of the 8,400 seats on 248 councils up for grabs were last fought on the day David Cameron won an overall majority at the 2015 general election. So the Tories have more ground to lose.

Certainly the contest comes at a bad time for the Tories; their support among those who voted Leave in the 2016 referendum has slumped since the UK failed to depart the EU on schedule in March.
