The populist movement in Europe

During the last French democratically held elections, there was a big shock as it seemed as though a right-wing party would actually be a front running contender to win the general election. Hard fought though the national front and Merine Le Pen narrowly missed out. Defeated by the centrist Macron. The liberal left of Europe thought that they could breathe a sigh of relief. That however was not the case. Not long after the cracks within the parties, Europe-wide were being put to the test. The Alternative for Germany (AFD) gained 94 seats in the Bundestag (Germany’s government), the anti-immigrant businessman Andrei Babis became the prime minister of the Czech Republic (a politician plagued by corruption allegations I may add), and then there was in Austria the right-wing Freedom Party, which took 26% of the national vote to become a coalition partner. Further south you have the five-star movement in Italy. Not to mention Brexit and the election of Donald Trump to the highest position in the land, President of the United States of America.

Throughout Europe the governing political bodies have drastically fallen out of favour with the voting public. But why is this? Well. One reason is the sway held by the Philanthropist and businessman George Soros. He has single handedly destroyed the very essence that made Europe so great, with his Open Borders policy (amongst others). For once the people of Europe are fighting back. What the liberal bureaucrats never envisioned (or were completely blind to), was the fact that it is the people that hold the true power. Not pencil pushing desk jockies. Oh, but I could not just blame this on just one man. After all, it has been a collective fau-par. The overbearingness of the European Union: its authoritarian rule over its members have indeed cast aside the loyalties that once were awarded to the Union. Just like the Soviet Union fell, so is the European Union. Alll from the miscalculations from the top. This is a problem with the extreme left. They think of good ideas, but when it comes to putting in that all too important hierarchical system, they fall depressingly short.

The rise of this populist movement has been quite ingenious. Toning down the rhetoric has taken these parties from merely ‘surviving on scraps’, to actual being in positions of power. Really able to make change happen. Le Penn was a master at this.  Now, because of the lessons learnt, the right now has the ability to bring the liberal elitists to their knees. In my opinion, they should be put behind bars. Their dirty tactics have destroyed the Union that was supposed to bring all the European countries together.

Come the European Elections next year there comes the time that the liberal elitists can finally be brought to justice.  I hope that the new order will bring to these liberals what they deserve. To see Europe taking a different direction is going to be something that is going to be monumentally significant to the entire global system. What I am worried about though is that we will be replacing one authoritarian regime with another.

The European agreement to the Aquarius illegals

Once again, the rescue ship operating in the Mediterranean has rescued more migrants making the perilous journey from North Africa over the Med and into Europe. This time 68 people have been said to have been taken on board, including women and children, if the reports are to be believed. As we know. The EU tends to report what it wants just to look good. It has been the island of Malta that on this occasion has agreed to take in all refugees. But there is a twist to this. They are offloading them to France, Portugal, Spain and Germany in a deal that was brokered by the European Union in order to disperse even numbers to its core supporters. Italy said no. Infact, according to an article by dw.com (2018, online), it has been Italy that has seen the Panama registration, of the privately-owned Aquarius ship henceforth revoked. This allows the ability to dock and undock in ports around the world. It means that it if it were to dock in a country. It would not be able to exit any port. A ploy by Rome to have the Aquarius ships activities halted.

The European Union’s inability to deal with this migrant crisis underlines the clear lack of positional judgement needed to stem the flow of illegals entering European borders. Nothing of any serious consequence is really being done. The open borders policy that the European Union is sticking by is a huge mistake. Why? It is turning countries against them. No citizen wants to live in fear of reprisals from migrants. Where they originate from is vastly different in terms of cultural ideals than what European countries are awarded. Will more people being killed by these migrants of Syria, Iraq, Somalia et al, be needed to address the problem they pose. How many people need to die before the EU has the guts to say no?

Unfortunately, because of the corruption culture that is widespread in the EU parliament, they are still able now to make wads of cash from these med crossings. They say they are fighting against human trafficking… God. They are a product of it. They are enforcing it, financing it all to line their greasy pockets. All the while everyone is none the wiser. After all, to the bureaucrats, we are just pieces in a big game of chess, easily maneuvered to bear the economic brunt.

At this point in time, the Aquarius is on her way back to France to dock in her home port of Marseilles whilst she battles to get back her Panama registration. So, in the short term, it seems as if the Italians have won a small victory in their ever-increasing disdain for the Union. I fear though that there is going to be a lot of drownings due to there not being any rescue option for them. Their flimsy boats I just don’t think are going to be able to sustain the back and forth crossings. At some point, something will give. The impact toll on human life will make the mainstream medias feelers stand up on end, they will be reporting pictures of children, the travesty that will have unfolded.

In my opinion there needs to be some serious questions being raised to do with the governments of the African countries lying along the med. It is just not enough to dump their problems onto those that live in Europe. What about incentives to stay, a no entry policy, unless you have an actual job to go to. That’s what happens in other countries. You cannot just arrive somewhere with nothing and expect the people of that country to fork out millions of Euros to sufficiently keep you in food and shelter. While you scream injustice. Is this fair at all, really?

The Brexit Scapegoat

The top story that has been constantly at the forefront of the British news has? The terrible Brexit negotiations handled by the British Prime Minister, Theresa May and the in-party squabbles of the conservatives. I am a blue supporter. I always have been. However, the ability of this current conservative party and the ground it has given away to the communist hard-left labor party is a real travesty to the democratization of the United Kingdom.

Unfortunately, Britain has probably ‘thebrexit’ most unfit, unqualified leader that the conservatives have had ruling the party… ever. She has given in to leftist liberals, given too much privileges away. For Christ sake, she decided to not even stand up to live political debates in the lead up to the last general election. Why? People, she isn’t a good public person. Her trip to Africa was a clear example of how uncomfortable she is in the public eye. Away from being on camera the prime minister can hide behind pre-made speeches, she is able to hide behind well devised speeches. On the global stage, she just cannot do that. In these countries, important trading partners to the UK after Brexit. I found that she was just unable to create a lasting image of solidarity. Something that emerging countries look to places like Britain to ascend to, a framework that they can mirror.

Most people in Britain would love to see Boris Johnson as the new Prime Minister. Yes, he is an amazing public speaker, calls it how he sees it. In the current political climate here in the UK, I don’t see that being the most ideal situation for the conservatives, at all. Jeremy Hunt? He can’t even manage the National Health System. How can he be trusted to manage a whole country? The Home Secretary, Sadiq Khan, I think the whole issue of  knife crime in the capital alone and his inability to tackle this problem will not even put him as a front runner for the big job. Now, currently there is no suitable candidate that could viably take over from Theresa May, without bringing the whole conservative party to its knees. I see that the party, until Britain has formerly left the European Union will not oust her. I do see though that the conservatives will use her as a scape goat for the awful way she has handled Brexit. Unfortunately, she has given into the liberal left. Given them too much room to spread their toxic feelers, as to say.

After March you are going to be hearing a lot of “right, she has gone, we can start making the putting in the steps that are going to make Britain great again”. It is going to be an interesting political time, Just before the EU parliament elections. What a time to be in this part of the world. I can’t wait.
