Ted Malloch: The EU and the Battle of the Chlorinated Chickens
Can you believe this?
In a world full of crises and plaguing problems, endless wars, pestilence and corruption; the EU is bent out of shape over. Drum roll please:
American chlorinated chickens.
Yes, in a news conference this afternoon in Brussels, the President of the EU and the Prime Minster of Ireland, what they call Taoiseach in Gaelic, Leo Varadkar, stressed that the possibility of American filthy chickens sneaking into Ireland and then onward into all of Europe once a border is forced after Brexit between Ireland and Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom, would be the most devastating result and lead to the downfall of their almighty empire/project.
‘Let them eat chicken’, Trump should say, paraphrasing Marie Antoinette, from an earlier European saga that ended badly.
We Americans have eating our chickens, doing so for generations, and look what has happened to us: GREATNESS!
The EU is just too much to bear.
It is unbelievable.
Earlier in the day the socialist President of the European Council, one Donald Tusk (why do they need so many presidents?)
That is only a rhetorical question.
No answer is necessary.
He said in a very diplomatic tone, “there is a special place in hell for those who promoted Brexit.”
Not a theologian, Tusk has made a fool of himself and brought the ire of all British people on him. It backfired.
As time winds down on the Withdrawal Agreement between the UK and the EU at 11 pm GMT on March 29thwhich is triggered by Article 50, there appears to be no prospect for a deal.
The EU has been intransigent and punitive against the UK.
There is a stalemate, in this game of chicken(s).
It has made an utter mockery out of rational negotiation and compromise and has jammed PM Theresa May between a rock and a hard place.
Most everyone wants a deal for an orderly and smooth Brexit.
But some in the UK still want to remain in the EU, even clamoring for a second referendum vote where they can overturn the democratic decision they didn’t like back in June 2016.
Polls suggest however that even more Brits would vote to LEAVE the EU today — based on their bad behavior, no doubt.
Leaving without a deal has spurned all kinds of threats, fear mongering, and sabotage.
A toilet paper shortage?
A shortage of fruits and veggies?
Fair-minded people and the Tories who backed Brexit admit to wanting a deal as well but are willing to just walk away without one.
The UK would then revert to WTO trading rules, which apply to over 85% of world trade, presently.
If they did such they could also save some 40 billion pounds, which the EU is trying to extract from Britain to pay for the EU and its excessive and bloated budgets.
What the EU fails to realize is that Brexit is just the start of the backlash against the EU and its globalist supranationalism.
More is on the way.
As I only half jokingly said over a year ago on the BBC, “you just have to put any two letters of a European country in front of the word EXIT—and you have a movement against the EU.”
Europe needs to take a page from this British horror show.
Everyone can see how they are being treated and toyed with.
Who can tolerate this?
Watch this video where a Flemish populist MEP in the European Parliament spells out everything that is wrong with the EU right to the face of the EU President, Jean-Claude Juncker.
Maybe the time has come for the march of those chlorinated chickens.
