But it's all true!!!!
It was 'suggested' by Pete, Peter Lundgren MEP - who reckons that Denmark and Sweden want out. UK lead for a new Nordic Bloc - supposedly more to join - who would then negotiate with the remnants of the EU. The EU will inevitably fail - as it get larger it's more difficult to please the ever increasing population of EU plebs.
I've seen the sky about to fall in so many times that I've become rather blasé about it. The Depression followed by lots of recessions, Hyperinflation and the Cold War where we were all going to be destroyed in a nuclear holocaust This was followed by dire warnings of a new Ice Age. Then, of course, more recently we were all going to die from bird flu, swine flu and mad cow disease and the Ozone Hole was going to gobble us up! Now it's terrorists, immigrants and financial ostracisation, probably followed by us falling off the continental shelf!
So at this moment in time it's just more supposition, speculation, guesswork and yet more half hearted promises from people who should a) keep their mouths shut until they can back it with fact and b) stop the spreading of things that may or may not happen in our lifetime if at all. How can we get on with it and make the best of things as long as there are people like that around ?
But they're politicians! That's their purpose in life - to confuse, obfuscate and witter on for no reason except to hear their own voices.
I agree. But it works both ways. Everyone guessing that we're all doomed is at least as unhelpful. Probably more so as it spreadsheet fear and pessimism. When you're a kid, there are times when you think you can do something but really you can't. And there are times when you think you can't do something but you can. When you're a kid you don't realise this so you just find out. When you believe you can't do something and someone tries to coerce you into doing it, you are filled with crippling fear and dread. Often you'll fail even if you try because your heart isn't I'm it. But if you try something you believe you can do, and you fail, you learn from it, try again, and ultimately succeed. Kids can do this because they haven't yet been ground down by naysayers. Some adults retain this ability well into later life. Some of them go on to achieve great things that others said was impossible. Nothing is achieved without optimism. We could look at what can't be done, then prove it. Or would could look at what could possibly be done, and help make it happen.
According to the Daily Mail Nigel Farage has quit as Ukip leader so looks like they will have to find a replacement for him,and no I am not offering
It's fairly important that we go forward with our eyes open and this includes taking account of what others have to say - whether we agree with what is said and whether it is substantiated or not - how can we 'make the best of things' with our head in the sand?
Yes, they do scrummy kangaroo burgers!
He's got a point though ... now the UK has voted for independence from the EU .. what is the point of UKIP now?
To give a voice to those who oppose those that want to block democracy by trying everything to ensure the result is ignored?
Farage really should choose his words better..."Answering questions from reporters, Farage said he and other Ukip MEPs would remain in the European parliament until the UK left and the roles no longer existed, something he hoped would happen within two years. He added: “The Ukippers will have been the turkeys who voted for Christmas.” http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2016/jul/04/nigel-farage-resigns-as-ukip-leader
