Today at 4.30 pm, at the end of the summit, a meeting is scheduled between British Prime Minister Theresa May and President of the European Council Donald Tusk. It is expected that May will open the doors to advance negotiations, in view of the European Summit on December 14 and 15.

The Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR), which prepares the statistics that the chancellor bases the budget on, is predicting that annual economic growth will be *below* 2% for the next five years. That's one of the worst forecasts in living memory. The chancellor says he hopes to prove the bleak economic forecasts released in his budget wrong. It's believed that clarity around Brexit would increase consumer confidence and lead to higher growth. While this may be true, it's seems astonishing to me that the car-crash that is Brexit is still even on the table. One way to achieve clarity would be to admit that Brexit isn't workable, and instead focus on economic recovery from the past decade of so-called austerity and undoing the harm of our amoral government. What all of t

But no formal offer will be made until the EU agrees to begin talking about a new trade deal with the UK. No new figure has been given - but it is thought it could be up to £40bn, which would be double what the UK's offers so far add up to. The UK and the EU have yet to agree on the so-called "divorce bill" with the UK due to leave the EU in March 2019. Some Conservative MPs have reacted angrily to the possibility of the UK agreeing to pay more - yesterday one, Nigel Evans, said it would be like a "ransom payment" to the EU while another, Robert Halfon, said it would make voters "go bananas". But despite this, BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith said leading Brexiteers in Theresa May's cabinet, like Boris Johnson and Michael Gove, had agreed to support he

You cannot change that, even though you hate facts, you scary Guy. Stop pretending Europe and the dictatorial, megalomaniacal EU are one and the same. And second, using a term like <b>‘radical’ </b>after importing and facilitating tons of radical muslims that have already killed thousands of us and our children and want to kill us all and conquer our land, women and possessions, is just another confirmation of your hatred towards the western people that pay your salary and luxurious lifestyle. <i>“Done with federalizing Europe (he is talking about the supranational dictatorial EU of course) at a slow pace, no more ‘step by step’”</i> Like a true dictator he is done with slowly misleading the European peoples and is ready for a full on take over.

Brexit has been a trap to keep everyone busy while Boris and his cronies![boris.jpg](https://steemitimages.com/DQmZBHyzWjinUr3rVB2P9cXudiN69SbSLV3fHTLxq55qCuF/boris.jpg) hand over the power to command/blame our own military. Myself I believe this to be so they can waste masses of money and it obviously carries the huge bonus(for them of coarse) of being centralized. Local concerns are drowned out and the fuel bill for the big green killing machine keeps us all tax slaves. Weather Brexit happens is probably already decided but reading between the lines of what we are being fed, it appears we are going to re-write our constitution using the copy and paste technique…how convenient.(https://www.politico.eu/article/how-the-eu-withdrawal-bill-could-change-the-course-of-brexit/) Haha us pesky Brits do like to throw a

Up until now it had been hoped that the UK would stay in the single market, an option they would likely have if they continued to pay into the EU budget, and an option that most economists believed would have eliminated a lot of the economic impact of Brexit. In an interview with Sophy Ridge on Sky News she said >Often people talk in terms as if we are leaving the EU but we still want to keep bits of membership of the EU. We’re leaving, we’re coming out. This has sparked concerns on how the markets may react. https://cdn.pixabay.com/photo/2016/06/22/19/53/eu-1473958_960_720.png
In my [Christmas song](https://steemit.com/music/@steevc/don-t-get-me-anything-for-christmas-a-seasonal-song-on-ukulele) I mentioned a book about [Brexit](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brexit) (probably the word of the year). Coincidentally my other half got this one as a 'secret Santa' gift. I read it yesterday, but can't say I was too impressed. It spoofs the [Enid Blyton](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enid_Blyton) books I read as a kid with one of them acting as a [Boris Johnson](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boris_Johnson) type. Only took an hour or so to read, but I don't think I'll be reading it again. It's added to my [Goodreads list](https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1851287309?book_show_action=false&from_review_page=1). I've not read a lot of books this year due to lack of time.

http://i.imgur.com/vp3VdvX.jpg Contact me if you're British and need to keep an EU passport after Brexit :) Man or woman, I'm not picky. In fact, a random English guy already contacted me on Reddit to ask how life in the Netherlands was. He happened to be gay; maybe we'll meet up sometime. And I heard from several British translators living on the continent that they were getting an EU passport, either by marrying their partner or through a naturalization exam. There are 500 million people living in the EU, including the UK, and while most of them are probably married, half of them are godless sinners. The exaggerated number is a reference to the slogan on [Boris Johnson's campaign bus](http://s1.ibtimes.com/sites/www.ibtimes.com/files/styles/lg/public/2016/05/15/borisjohnson.jpg). Meanwhile, a soft Brexit is already happening: http://i.imgur.com/G6EybA1.jpg *Images from Twitter*

Will this ever end?</p> <p> Ever since Theresa May took over the reigns from David Cameron, she has vowed to respect and honour the wish of the people and lead Britain out of the EU. However, someone has just come along and thrown an almighty spanner in the works and the government has spiralled back into chaos. As someone who wants Britain to remain in the EU, I’m tempted to join other Remainers in rejoicing, but the hard reality is the majority of those who took part in the referendum voted to leave and that needs to be respected. Sure, there were some “I-shouldn’t-have-voted-to-leave” Regretters and “I-thought-we-were-going-to-win

<html> <p><img src="https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CukuBusWYAAsvws.jpg" width="1200" height="797"/></p> <p>As is well known, on 23rd June the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. The British Government had clearly stated that it would implement the result of that referendum vote. But Britain does not have direct democracy. It is governed by 'The Queen In Parliament' - the technical phrase for the executive, legislative and judicial powers (which are not divided as they are in many modern states, in accordance with 18th century ideas of good government). So unless the Act of Parliament states that a referendum result is binding, it isn't. And the Act of Parliament calling this referendum didn't state that.</p> <p>But there is narrow law, and there is political expediency and reality. The British people voted for Brexit (the common term now given to the process of Britain exiting the EU). And Brexit they will get. While legislators (MPs and Lords) could theoretically ignore the referendum result, in p
http://cdn.wccftech.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Brexit.jpeg The Vice-Chancellor of Germany has stated that the future of the EU might be in jeopardy if Brexit is not handled properly. Sigmar Gabriel said that, if the United Kingdom’s exit caused other countries to follow suit and leave the Union, that would cause the EU to go “down the drain.” He told a news conference that Brexit had damaged Europe’s reputation, causing the continent to become regarded as being unstable. The UK Prime Minister Theresa May is currently weighing the country’s options regarding the exit vote, while her cabinet remains split on leaving the single market. A last chance for the EU to learn from its mistakes Lee Gibson Grant of the Drachmae Travel Club says: “We need to ask ourselves what is the EU, and what does it really stand for, before we hear more comments coming from Germany representing the EU to the world. Brexit could have been dealt with much better as the opportunity to avoid Brexit was on the table.
<html> <p>Take a look at the odds currently being offered on the Labour leadership election and no one would blame you for seeing the incumbent's, Jeremy Corbyn, reelection by the 500,000-strong membership as anything but a foregone conclusion. Indeed this is how those on the political scene are treating the contest. Ladbrokes are offering a generous 1/8 on Corbyn whilst William Hill is taking no chances with 1/11 reflecting the absolute confidence with which many expect Corbyn to claim victory.</p> <p>His rival, Welsh MP Owen Smith, has so far refused to rule out an official split in the Labour Party reminiscent of the late 1970s when staunch socialist Michael Foot was elected as leader of the party and the more moderate factions of the party broke away to form the Social Democrats. <em>The Independent</em> reported at the end of July that a group of rebel MPs were planning to mount a legal challenge to the Labour Party which, if successful, would see the assets of the Labour Party transferred over to the 'n
Global Real Estate Bubble will burst from 2016 to 2018 --------------------------------------------------------------------------- On June 23, 2016, the world changed after Brexit, when UK decided to leave EU. The British pound drops 10% in one single day and make history as this had not happened for 30 years. Brexit also ignited other hidden serious issues with the Global Debt based Ponzi scheme Fractional Reserve Monetary System. Currently the world is in debt of US$300 trillion vs US$100 global GDP. For every dollar the global economy generates, more than twice are being spend. Simple logic tells us that overspending what you can earn cannot last, as many nations have to borrow to continue to finance their deficits. What if nations already in debt borrows from each other’s debt, thereby increasing their debts mutually. Isn’t something have gone wrong with the global fractional monetary system. All Ponzi schemes must come to an end, even the longest in modern history now over 40 years. Quantitative Ea
