It’s Only Your Money Until The Globalists Say It’s Theirs

July 29, 2017

The EU (Euronazi) bureaucrats have come up with a splendid new scheme to fill the hole in the EU budget that is already threatening the future of the bloc and will go critical after Brexit which will leave Germany as the only net contributor to the budget. They are going to claim that all the money in the EU belongs to the EU. If there is the slightest hint that a government has a problem servicing its debts or a bank, any bank in the EU, does not have enough capital to meet its obligations, you had better get your money out yesterday.

In fact it might be a good idea to get your money out and put it in offshore investment trusts anyway.

Although it’s your money, the EU have decided they have the right to freeze Personal Accounts to prevent financial problems blossoming into crisesfreeze Personal Accounts to prevent financial problems blossoming into crises. And one they have taken control of your accounts, they will also have the right to do what they like with your money.

Or to put it in the anodyne, non scary language bureaucrats prefer:

European Union states are considering measures which would allow them to temporarily stop people withdrawing money from their accounts to prevent bank runs, an EU document reviewed by Reuters revealed.

The move is aimed at helping rescue lenders that are deemed failing or likely to fail, but critics say it could hit confidence and might even hasten withdrawals at the first rumors of a bank being in trouble.

The proposal, which has been in the works since the beginning of this year, comes less than two months after a run on deposits at Banco Popular contributed to the collapse of the Spanish lender.

Giving supervisors the power to temporarily block bank accounts at ailing lenders is “a feasible option,” a paper prepared by the Estonian presidency of the EU said, acknowledging that member states were divided on the issue.

EU countries which already allow a moratorium on bank payouts in insolvency procedures at national level, like Germany, support the measure, officials said.

“The desire is to prevent a bank run, so that when a bank is in a critical situation it is not pushed over the edge,” a person familiar with German government’s thinking said.

The Estonian proposal was discussed by EU envoys on July 13 but no decision was made, an EU official said. Discussions were due to continue in September. Approval of EU lawmakers would be required for any final decision.

Under the plan discussed by EU states, pay-outs could be suspended for five working days and the block could be extended to a maximum of 20 days in exceptional circumstances, the Estonian document said.

Spooking Customers

Charlie Bannister of the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) says “We strongly believe that this would incentivize depositors to run from a bank at an early stage.” Why Might Customers Want to Run?

Here are a trillion reasons: There are over €1 trillion nonperforming loans (both government and private debt) held by EU commercial and central banks right now and the figure is growing every month. Non performing loans are those on which no interests or less that the contracted rate of interest is being paid.

Non-Performing Loans
Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal, and Ireland have a combined €606 billion in non-performing loans.

The entire European banking system is over-leveraged, under-capitalized, and propped up by QE from the ECB. Simply put, the EU banking system is insolvent.

That the EU has to consider such drastic measures proves the point.

Our Tax money Funds Euronazi Brainwashing Program In School

How the EU’s billions fund Brussels Beanos

Move over, Dennis the Menace. The European Union has produced a series of cartoon strips, games and colouring books that rival the antics of Minnie the Minx, Desperate Dan and other classic comic characters.

The cartoons teach children how EU cash has funded fire engines, hospital wards and infrastructure as part of a drive to counter the impression that the 28-member bloc is wasteful.

Children can also learn about the intricacies of the Common Agricultural Policy, the work of competition lawyers and the virtues of free movement.

One such comic, published recently by the Publications Office of the European Union, has the very Naziish title ‘On the Road to Victory’, and features a class of international students from Slovakia’s capital, Bratislava. “Inspired by the EU budget”, they take a trip across Europe.

The comic was drawn by two cartoonists under the guidance of the EU Directorate-General for Budget, which oversees the bloc’s €144

I love the way teacher says proudly there is only 1% fraud but omits to mention the other 99% is spent on vanity projects, social engineering initiative, eugenics programmes, and funding jollies to exotic destina tions for bureaucrats You don’t have to defraud the EU to enjoy a millionair lifestyle, just get yourself a seat on the gravy train. I speak from experience.

"We Are Not At War With ISIS Or Russia, We Are At War With The ECB": says Grillo

November 14, 2014

People sometimes ask me why we gave up making this blog funny or satirical most of the time. The answer is simple: While the world situation is highly dangerous at the moment our western leaders are such inept clowns it is hard to make fun of them as they do increasingly accurate impressions of The Three Stooges.

Beppe Gillo, leader of Italy’s Five Star movement (the Italian UKIP) is a comedian and he agrees that there is no point slapping a pie in the faces of Obama, cameron and Hollande (the FUKUS axis leaders) when left to their own devices they will do a Norman Wisdom style stumble and fall face first into a cowpat whenever a situation that requires a modicum of intelligence is required.

Beppe Grillo (Source)

Grillo also feels, as this blog does, that wile our leaders beat the drum for war in Ukraine, war in Syria, war everywhere, the real war we are involved in right now is with our own elites.

Italy’s Grillo Rages “We Are Not At War With ISIS Or Russia, We Are At War With The ECB”

Next week, Italy’s Beppe Grillo – the leader of the Italian Five Star Movement – will start collecting signatures with the aim of getting a referendum in Italy on leaving the euro “as soon as possible,” just as was done in 1989. As Grillo tells The BBC in this brief but stunning clip, “we will leave the Euro and bring down this system of bankers, of scum.” With two-thirds of Parliament apparently behind the plan, Grillo exclaims “we are dying, we need a Plan B to this Europe that has become a nightmare – and we are implementing it,” raging that “we are not at war with ISIS or Russia! We are at war with the European Central Bank,” that has stripped us of our sovereignty. (from Zero Hedge)

Beppe Grillo said yesterday:

It is high time for me and for the Italian people, to do something that should have been done a long time ago: to put an end to your sitting in this place, you who have dishonoured and substituted the governments and the democracies without any right. Ye are a factious crew, and enemies to all good government; ye are a pack of mercenary wretches, and would like Esau sell your country for a mess of pottage, and like Judas betray your God for a few pieces of money. Is there a single virtue now remaining amongst you? A crumb of humanity? Is there one vice you do not possess? Gold and the “spread” are your gods. GDP is you golden calf.

We’ll send you packing at the same time as Italy leaves the Euro. It can be done! You well know that the M5S will collect the signatures for the popular initiative law – and then – thanks to our presence in parliament, we will set up an advisory referendum as happened for the entry into the Euro in 1989. It can be done! I know that you are terrified about this. You will collapse like a house of cards. You will smash into tiny fragments like a crystal vase. Without Italy in the Euro, there’ll be an end to this expropriation of national sovereignty all over Europe. Sovereignty belongs to the people not to the ECB and nor does it belong to the Troika or the Bundesbank. National budgets and currencies have to be returned to State control. They should not be controlled by commercial banks. We will not allow our economy to be strangled and Italian workers to become slaves to pay exorbitant interest rates to European banks.

The Euro is destroying the Italian economy. Since 1997, when Italy adjusted the value of the lira to connect it to the ECU (a condition imposed on us so that we could come into the euro), Italian industrial production has gone down by 25%. Hundreds of Italian companies have been sold abroad. These are the companies that have made our history and the image of “Made in Italy”.

An Avalanche Of Upshitcreekness

July 31, 2014

argentina default

We are kind to our readers here at Boggart Blog, we give you lots of new and very amusing words like upshitcreekness to play with when you are trying to describe the state of the world. Upshitcreekness describes no only how far up shit creek we really are, the depth of the shit beneath our canoe, the conspicuous lack of a paddle and the stinkyness of our surroundings.

The reason we invented upshitcreekness today is to adequately describe the situation in high finance following the debt default by Argentina and the collapse of Portugal’s Banco Espirito Santo this week. “But do those affect us, Ian?” You might well ask.

Not directly or immediately, but they demonstrate that in spite of all the blether from mainstream media, the debt crisis and the fragility of banks’ balance sheets has not gone away. There is no recovery.

“But haven’t Whitehall and Washington been pumping out data that shows a strong economic recovery is underway, everybody now has fourteen jobs, wages are rising and prices are falling and everything is hunky dory because that nice Mr. Rothschild lent us the money to sort it all out.

Well the numbers that they crank out to make everybody feel good are almost as phony as the numbers that the Argentine government has been cranking out for the past few years. Cristina Fernández the government finance chief says well, we only have 10% inflation. But everybody knows that a broad snapshot shows for necessary purchases it’s 30 to 40%. And here they say we have 2% inflation. I would say that based on a household budget (which excludes luxury goods that are being heavily discounted because nobody is buying) inflation is realistically in the 8-10% range here, and in the USA it’s going much higher because the US$ has been dropped by many trading and oil producing nations as the currency of bilateral trade. This has been going on for a while but contracts are made eighteen months to two years in advance so the effect does not kick in at once.

If we observe the actual economy rather than the fiat money and quantitative easing economy it has been obvious for a while that the upshitcreekness was being masked by printing money and statistical prestadigitation.

The growth is all a fantasy. It’s all a result of the assumption that there is no inflation, when there really is because what we have is inflation masquerading as economic growth. But the bottom line is the economy is really contracting, although jobless figures are massaged by simply not counting the long term unemployed and counting those in part time jobs as having a whole job and not a fraction of a job, the labour force is actually shrinking. GDP may be growing but that’s only because the government keeps printing money and handing it out in benefits, there is actually less economic activity. That’s why we’re using less energy, that’s why the people’s standard of living is going down, and real incomes are falling and job opportunities are disappearing. It’s because we’re in a recession, a depression even, and no one wants to admit it.

And as in 1939 the leading economic powers see war as a way out, which is why the USA and its allies are madly angling for war in Ukraine.

And if there’s a war we’re fucked, I’m fucked, you’re fucked, we’re all fucking fucked. That’s what is meant by Upshitcreekness.

Well that’s the external threats dealt with, noe we need to deal with the enemy within (the EU)

If The Government Does Not Keep Junkhead Junckers Hands Off The City, we can say gooodbye to nationhood.

Yes, thanks to economic mismanagement by Conservative and Labour governments since the 1960s we are far too dependent on our financial services business. And the money hungry bureaucrats of the EU have coveted the revenue that brings in for many years.

What The Media Is Not Writing About Flight MH17

July 21, 2014

Only hours after the tragic downing of Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine, Western politicians, led by the dickhead in chief Barack Hussein Obama were jumping up and down screaming “It was Russia wot done it.” The sycophants in mainstream media were quick to join in, stating that the US / EU backed fascist government in Kiev had compelling evidence that pro Russian separatists in east Ukraine, with the complicity of The Kremlin were responsible for the outrage.

What immediately struck the more level headed and intelligent commentators of new media was that political leaders and their tame political hacks were just too quick off the mark.

“But it It had to be Russia; it had to be Putin, we so desperately need it to be Putin” they howled when the voice of common sense pointed out that the government of Ukraine saying it was pro Russian dissidents it hardly the compelling evidence they claimed it was

President Obama held a press conference to remind everyone that he is the most wonderful human being that ever lived and reiterate that if world leaders who just accept his supremacy and do what he told them there would be no more conflict. he went on to claim – even before an investigation – that it was certainly pro-Russian rebels in the region who were responsible. His ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, did the same at the UN Security Council – just one day after the crash and at a time when the back box flight recorders were still missing.

While western media outlets rush to broadcast government propaganda on the event, there are a few things they will not report.

They will not for example remind you that the crisis in Ukraine started late last year, when EU and US-supported seditionists led moves to the overthrow the elected Ukrainian president, Viktor Yanukovych. Without US-sponsored “regime change,” it is unlikely that hundreds would have been killed in the unrest that followed. Nor would the Malaysian Airlines crash have happened.

The media has also reported unequivocally that the plane must have been shot down by Russian forces or Russian-backed separatists, because the missile that reportedly brought down the plane was Russian made. But they will not report that the Ukrainian government also uses the exact same Russian-made weapons. They will not report that while it is known that the Ukraine army have Buc missiles, launchers and trained crews, there is no evidence that the Pro – Russian dissidents did.

When lack of evidence of the rebels is pointed out the media luvvies scream “but that isn’t proof that they didn’t have them.”

Exactly. It is impossible to prove a negative. And the fact that the Ukraine Army did have SAM launchers capable of firing they type of missile allegedly responsible for bringing down the aircraft does not prove the Ukraine Army fired it. just because the rent boy President, brack Obama wants a thing to be true does not make it so. The fact that he can belive a thing is true because he wants it to be true only proves he is a solipsist.

We had a solipsist as Prime Minister of the UK not long ago, the traitor and war criminal Tony Blair. And he was as keen on war and killing as Obama. but I digress.

Mainstream media will not report that the EU / US sponsored government in Kiev has killed 250 people in the breakaway Lugansk region since June, according to OSCE monitors nor that the USA has strongly backed the Ukrainian government in these attacks on civilians, which a State Department spokeswoman called “measured and moderate.”

Their hysterical commentators will not point out that Russia and the pro Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine have anything to gain but everything to lose by shooting down a passenger liner full of civilians, thus bringing down on their cause the anger of the world. Nor will they comment that the Ukrainian usurper’s government could give itself a kind of legitimacy gain by blaming the attack on Russia, or that the Ukrainian leader is openly gloating about Russia being blamed for the attack.

They will not report that the missile that apparently shot down the plane was from a sophisticated surface-to-air missile system that requires a good deal of training that the separatists do not have.

They will not report that the separatists in eastern Ukraine have inflicted considerable losses on the Ukrainian government in the week before the plane was downed.

And they will not even breathe a word about how similar this craptangle is to last summer’s US claim that the Assad government in Syria had used poison gas against civilians in Ghouta. Assad was also gaining the upper hand in his struggle with US-backed rebels and the US claimed that the attack came from Syrian government positions. US false claims and unsubstantiated accusations led us to the brink of war in that case too. Public opposition and support for Assad from Russia, China and Iran forced Obama to back down then, we have learned since then that US claims about the gas attack were false.

The word of a liar and a bunch of fascist thugs is not evidence so let’s all calm down for one simple reason. For decades we have been brainwashed with propaganda about American military supremacy. But now with a US President who seems hellbent on starting a real war with Russia and it’s allies are we sure we are willing to bank on the US wiping out their enemies without any return of fire.

We are very foolish if we are.

Told You So – You Wouldn’t Vote UKIP, Now Tha Nazis Are In Charge

July 16, 2014

BERLIN (Reuters) – The head of the European Parliament said on Wednesday that the “radically anti-European” views of Jonathan Hill, British premier David Cameron’s nominee for the European Commission, might prevent him getting onto the EU’s executive body.

As the progressive liberal (aka authoritarian fascist) bandwagon rolls on through the ancient nation states of Europe, Hitler and Mussolini, Stalin and Sultan Suyeman must be laughing their megalomaniacal heads off in whatever firey pit or dark abyss they inhabit.

First we had the new President of the EU Commission, Jean – Claude Drunkard telling European leaders he wanted half the new Commissioners to be women and would veto appointments if he did not get his wish. It has always been the prerogative of member nations to nominate their own choices.

jean claude drunkard e u commission
Jean – Claude Drunkard prepares to address the European Parliament (source)

Now we have the Kraut who says democracy must not be allowed to stand in the way of creating a European federal Superstate (run, no doubt, by a committee of unelected bureaucrats).

Martin Schulz, the German socialist president of the parliament, warned national leaders on Tuesday that unless they nominate what he calls “enough” women as commissioners, the parliament will reject the entire incoming college of commissioners.

Schulz, who was one of the organisers of the new system of “Spitzenkandidat” or lead candidate which in effect chose Jean-Claude Juncker as president of the commission despite opposition by British Prime Minister David Cameron, says that the three or four women’s names now circulating are not enough.

According to EU Observer, Schulz said: “Looking at the information currently available on the number of female candidates, the commission would not receive the backing of majority in the European Parliament. I will make that point to the [EU leaders] tomorrow.”

Schulz meant the heads of state and government who make up the European Council, which meets today, Wednesday, in a special session to discuss candidates for the other top jobs in Brussels which become vacant later this year.

Although commissioners are nominated by member states, they must be approved by a majority of the European Parliament.

If these shits are allowed to have their wait we will no longer have democracy in the sense rule according to the will of the majority but democracy of demographics, or label politics. In order to maginalise the majority, wannabe dictators will demand that the correct number of women, GayBLT, Muslims, Jews, Black, Asian, and Orientals in government.

Quotas (aka tokenism) have long been a dream of the authoritarian left. One might think even people as stupid and self centred as the ‘progressive left’ would have learned from the example of the incompetent, war mongering, child murdering, cocaine addicted rent boy who is posing as President of the USA the folly of selecting people for top jobs by demographic.

But no, according to the EU having tits is the second best qualification for a job. The best apparently is being a neo Nazi piss head who is usually so rat arsed after lunch he falls asleep in meetigs and dribbles on his order paper. And its all in the name of ‘diversity’.

The more “diverse” these cherry picked commissioners get, the less they will pay attention to such trifling matters as fixing the economy, creating jobs, reining in the rampant greed of corporate industries and anything else that voters might think is important. They will all have politically correct proportions of XY and XX chromosomes, melanin, and sexual preferences. And they’ll all have spent at least eighteen years being brainwashed with globalist propaganda in state run educational institutions so that they think exactly the same way.

Some people are suggesting Cameron ought to veto any European Commission nominee not suported by the national assembly of their country. Boggart Blog would go further. Cameron should veto with immediate effect the £52million the Euronazis get from our tax money.

Farage Turns Back On EU National Anthem?

July 2, 2014

So when did Europe become a nation we were all asking as the kerfuffle about UKIP’s protest over a ‘backroom stitch up that saw another federalist appointed to the presidency of the European Parliament.

Now while we at Boggart Blog sympathise with UKIP’s anti EU position we do think this prostest is being taken far too seriously. Protesting over a backroom stitich up in the EU. If they were to protests about every backroom stitich up in the EU they wouldn’t even have time to go for a dump.

from Huffington Post UK:
“The Ukip MEPs’ show of defiance took place as a chamber orchestra opened the parliament’s first session, which saw German socialist Martin Schulz elected president, by playing Beethoven’s Ode to Joy”

Well at least its a decent tune and although it is German they could have picked The Horst Wessel Song which would have signalled the intentions of the EU very clearly.

Oh Nigel, You Cad. Clegg Caught you Telling A Porkie

March 28, 2014

farage clegg europe debatePicture source: BBC News

The mainstream media commentariat (Ed Bollocks fans, and wannabe Euro Federalists all, even those who work for The Telegraph and The Daily Mail) are trying to spin the EU Election debate between Nick Clegg and Nigel Farage as a win for Clegg and a display of embarrassing ineptitude from Farage. Fortunately we the punters mistrust the media more than any other profession … except maybe politicians, lawyers, accountants, bankers, doctors, scientists, teachers and civil servants.

We would rather trust estate agents, used car salesmen and pensions brokers that journalists, but only just. And with good reason it seems because apart from those media shills, anyone who watched the debate (I didn’t myself) seems to score it a win on points for Farage. Clegg even had to resort to accusing his opponent of telling porkies:

“He accused Farage of not telling the truth in claiming the population of Romania and Bulgaria is 29 million. Who in the audience was to know that the real figure is 28.635 million? Clegg must have known but it didn’t stop him. “He also accused Farage of supporting a tyrant, Vladimir Putin to which Farage replied: ‘I don’t support Putin … but if you poke the Russian bear with a stick he will respond‘. A fair point, well made.

Not only a failure to score the point, but for its nitpicking irrelevancy an epic fail typical of an EU bureaucrat, which is perhaps a hint about where Clegg will be heading when he loses his Sheffield Hallam seat at the next election.

As for the debate itself, (‘scuse me while I light a Chuchillian cigar) Never … has so much of so little substance … been said to so many by so few.

Clegg dared to claim that EU membership is about “your job – or the job of someone you know” and “if we cut ourselves off from Europe, jobs will be lost”. Clegg’s image of a post-EU Britain as a kind of western North Korea, isolated, impoverished and living on porridge is risible.

No one is proposing to “pull up the drawbridge”, as he ridiculously put it – we would continue trade, just as well as Norway and Switzerland do now. We would not be “withdrawing from the world’s largest economy”. Pulling out of the EU (in time to avoid spawning that Federal European Superstate – well catholicism is the largest religion in Europe) would not stop us trading with EU nations, as Norway, Switzerland and other non EU European nations do now, in fact without the dead hand of EU bureaucracy stifling our advantages we would probably do better.

Only an agenda driven ideologue would suggest that leaving the EU would be as big a social disaster as was New Labour’s policy of exporting proper jobs to low labour cost nations and masking the mass unemployment by vastly expanding the public payroll. Only an idiot or an economists (which are the same thing) thinks that hiring a million tax eaters results in the economy growing.

Mr Farage has spent years on the town-hall circuit revving up the party faithful, so his rhetoric tends to be even more overblown. Does observing European law really represent “the destruction of all the great principles of British liberty”? The laws in most European nations are very similar to ours as a result of what is mistakenly called “The Judeo – Christian culture” (really it’s the Romano – Germanic culture)

What is really debilitating is EU bureaucracy and the way we are surrendering sovereignty to unelected officers of the European Commission.

Farage however has built his political career on exposing the flaws in EU membership. If polls are in any way indicative of reality (and Labour supporting science heads tell me statistics are always right, cuz its science, innit?) UKIP are on the verge of a potentially game changing victory in the Euro elections. This is largely because Nigel Faragem whatever his faults, has an ability all other politicians have lost; he speaks the language of the man in the pub.

The public are not stupid which is why Labour are tanking in the aforementioned polls. Punters recognise facts presented in ways that related to ordinary lives, not the lives of posh boy politicians, greedy bankers and reality challenged academics, clear, simple arguments resonate with the voters, and that, according to what I see and hear, Farage won.

Scaremongering about our reliance on membership of the EU, or fantasies about how the economy will benefit from mass immigration are seen for what they are, politically correct bullshit. The EU empire is crumbling before it even got off the ground, as those of us who understand economics (i.e. are NOT economists) always predicted it would. The Eurozone buys more from us than we buy from them, so they need us more than we need them. They also need our £40 million a day cash injection because like all bureaucracies, Brussels eats other peoples’ money.

Farage makes a good, clear case for a British exit and not only was it well argues, it was what the majority of people wanted to hear.

Yeah, That’ll Put The Wind Up Putin

March 25, 2014

Yesterday mainstream media reported Russia is engaged in a military build up along the Ukrainian border while Moldova’s breakaway province of Transnistria, makes noises about wishing to join The Russian Federation. We think David Cameron should be talking to Transnistria about the advantages of their joining the British Empire, check our our post on Transnistria from yesterday’s Noggart Blog and you will understand why.

Into the fray steps Barack Hussein Obama who is drawing red lines on the map again. The last one he drew went from Kuala Lumpur to Diego Garcia.

To counter that Russia’s show of military muscle, Obama and the US – of sector-wide sanctions on the Russian economy. According to administration officials, financial services, energy, metals and mining, defence and engineering are all in the crosshairs.

Once again Obama is all huff and puff and no substance, promising yesterday that “if Russia escalates the situation”, by which we assume he means they invade and annex the Russian – speaking east of Ukraine, then the US and the EU will impose “a greater cost”.

Based on Obama’s track record for wimping out when people challenged his authority as President Of The Entire Universe And Everything Else besides, we should be under no illusions as to what the US President might mean by full-on sanctioning of the Russia economy.

So as Russia lines up the tanks, planes, helicopter gunships, EMP weapons possibly and thousands of well equipped troops, in response Obama has threatened to cancel the bus passes of retired Russian oligarchs living in Florida.

Yeah, that’ll put the wind up Putin.

If William Hague Looked Like This I’d Vote Tory

moldova-foreign-ministerNina Shtanski, Foreign Affairs Minister of Moldova Breakaway Province Transdniestria

There’s more trouble brewing around the Back Sea as in the wake of Crimea’s rejoining The Russian Federation and the EU and USA leaders retaliating by cancelling the bus passes of seven Russian senior citizens or something, another former Soviet republic looks set to split with the ethic Russian province of Transdniestria demanding it be allowed to secede from Moldova and rejoin Russia.

Now the only thing I know about Transdniestria is they’ve got the best looking foreign affairs spokesperson in the world, in fact next to Nina, William Hague and John Kerry look like the front and back ends of a motorway pile up. And former US Secretary of State and wannabe President Hillary Rodham Clinton looks like something from the middle. (And forget the Presidency Hilly, no way is The Emperor Obama going to quit after his two terms are up).

The trouble in Moldova will be another blow to the EU / New World Order dream of an extended Europe, pulling all the former Soviet states, the Balkans, Turkey, the middle east and north Africa under the control of the corporate – banking cartel.

The glamorous foreign minister of the breakaway region is calling on Vladimir Putin to make her country his next conquest in eastern Europe.

Though few have heard of Transdniestria which sounds like a fictional country in a 1950s spy thriller it is in fact a strategically important location and senior Western politicians are alarmed that following the annexation of Crimea it’s reunion with Mother Russia may be the next step in a Kremlin masterplan to redraw the frontiers of Europe.

That a top diplomat in staunchly pro-Russian Transdniestria, who has a penchant for revealing black dresses, is gushing in her praise of Putin’s takeover of the Black Sea peninsula can only add to their worries.

Nina is openly inviting The Kremlin to make the same move in her landlocked territory of 509,000 people, wedged between strife-torn Ukraine and Moldova. Read more:

Bizarrely, on the same day as Nina got em out for the boys this news broke, we learned that:

Britons Rate Russia More Favorably Than European Union

Even bearing in mind that few Britons have lived in Russia, that’s still quite a surprise but how credible is it?

from Zero Hedge

One would think that for all its demonization in the Western press, not to mention the countless comparisons to Hitler and/or the Antichrist, that Putin’s Russia would be viewed relatively negatively especially in that bastion of western thought: Britain. Yes, perhaps: it certainly doesn’t have a sterling image. However what is remarkableis that depite recent events in the Crimea, Britons still see Russia in a more positive light than the European Union, despite recent tensions with Moscow over Ukraine, according to a poll published on Saturday.

Perhaps this is not surprising, because as AFP reports, voters in Britain are also equally divided about whether to remain in the 28-member bloc, a subject on which Prime Minister David Cameron has promised a referendum in 2017 and which is the reason for the blistering ascent in popularity of such political parties as the UKIP.

The league table of 27 “liked” countries and institutions put the European Parliament — for which elections are being held in May — sixth from bottom, and the EU fourth from bottom.

Only Saudi Arabia, Iran and North Korea ranked below the European parliament when those polled were asked how positive or negative they felt towards them. Israel was fifth from bottom and Russia was seventh from bottom. Canada was top.

But does it make sense for Britons to look east for leadership and security. Well as a commenter at Zero Hedge remarked:

“I would too if I realized I stood a good chance of being hacked to death in the streets by a fanatic Muslim.

Stuff like that doesn’t happen in Russia.”

VOTE UKIP or anybody else that is not linked to the three main parties.
