    EU referendum: BCC boss John Longworth 'suspended over Brexit comments'

    John Longworth told the BCC's annual conference the UK could have a 'brighter economic future' outside the EU

    The director-general of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) has reportedly been suspended over comments he made suggesting Britain would have better prospects if it left the European Union.

    John Longworth told the BCC's annual conference on Thursday that the UK could have a "brighter economic future" outside the EU.

    His comments prompted an emergency meeting to discuss how to reconcile his views with those of other members, The Financial Times reports. (...)

    Typical of this benighted time. Hugs and 'muh feels'.

    When will this era of faggotry end?

    If I were a Brit, I'd consider this worse than that creepy Starbucks campaign to have baristas scribble on your coffee cup about having a conversation on racism. I NEVER NEVER NEVER want strangers to hug me. I will not sign a waiver for it and if by chance somebody hugs me unallowed, and uses it for publicizing for any political purpose, they will feel a burn.

    Brexit would be a victory for xenophobes

    Britain’s EU referendum will be a vote on immigration. The out camp know that voters are aware of the economic and political risks of Brexit, but hope that their resentment of "uncontrolled" immigration from the EU will trump these concerns.

    Growing up in a Yorkshire village in the latter half of the '70s and the '80s, the idea of significant numbers of people coming to live in Britain, let alone Yorkshire, was just funny.

    The Irish aside, there just weren’t any. And they would not have been received warmly. The bigotry was jarring, the suspicion of foreigners unapologetic. Yorkshire was not exceptional; much of Britain was like this.

    Things have changed enormously for the better over the thirty years since. From being home to one of the lowest proportion of people from other EU countries in the EU in the mid-1980s, Britain is now home to a comparable proportion of people from other EU countries as Germany and France.

    Over this period, the UK has gone from being one of the more insular EU countries to one of its more open and cosmopolitan ones. Openness to immigration is sign of a flourishing, confident society; hostility to it an indicator of a fearful, resentful one. (...)

    The author is a Reuters Breakingviews columnist. The opinions expressed are his own.

    It is June 24 and a majority of Britons have voted to leave the European Union. U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he’s inspired by their victory and calls for a similar referendum on the North American Free Trade Agreement and Trans-Pacific Partnership in the United States. Breakingviews obtained an early copy of Trump’s speech (three-quarters of which is composed verbatim of Trump’s previous comments on the topic).

    I just got off the phone with my English politician friend Boris Johnson. I congratulated him on his huge victory in convincing the people of Britain to do what we should be doing here.

    Yesterday, the British held a referendum and decided they’ve had enough. No more sending good manufacturing jobs overseas. No more letting bureaucrats in Brussels decide the shape of their bananas or whatever. Seriously, it’s crazy.

    No more giving Romanian plumbers jobs that belong to English workers. And no more allowing freeloading migrants to cross the English Channel. Migration has been a horrible thing for Europe.

    We might have fought with the Brits over the years. They even tried to keep me out of the country. I know Great Britain very well. I know the country very well. I have a lot of investments there. The Brits are sending a message as clear as day across the pond: We will no longer surrender this country, or its people, to the false song of globalism.

    America First will be the major and overriding theme of my administration. (...)

    We can only hope. It would perhaps be one of the only times in history where a British political initiative actually had a positive impact on the historical development of the rest of the continent...

    I been's gathering blue-collar sentiments on the EU topic across Southern UK regions and it appears to be "Fuck the EU, we're leaving".

    • Up in Scotland there's more EU suport and their always reliably dodgy leaders will use Brexit as an excuse to demand another independence voat. (They can't afford to leave because they won't be able to carry their share of the debt that will come with it... but hey, that's their problem.)
    • Amongst the toffs (toffee noses aka the rich) there's a lot more suport for the EU, because the EU system alows them to push down working man's wages.
    • Amongst the shitliberals and Hampstead Prawn Sandwich brigades there's alots of EU suport, because they suport faggotry and globalisation.
    • Up in the North of England the anti-EU sentiment appears to be pretty strong.

    Bottom line - apart from hipsters, Scots, faggots, shitlibs, kurupt politicians, the Landed Gentry and other select elite shitheads, it looks like the UK is heading for a Brexit.

    Italy Heads to Polls for Second Round of Local Elections

    Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s ruling party could face setback in battle against anti-establishment movement

    By
    GIADA ZAMPANO

    ROME—Millions of Italians headed to the polls Sunday for runoff elections that could see Italy’s anti-establishment 5 Star Movement win a decisive victory in Rome.
    Voters in more than 120 city councils were returning to the polls in the second round of local elections for new mayors and town councilors that could represent a setback for
    Prime Minister Matteo Renzi’s ruling center-left party.
    After disappointing results in the first round of voting two weeks ago, the battle for Mr. Renzi’s Democratic Party is focused on four main cities: Rome, Milan, Turin and Bologna.
    In Rome, Virginia Raggi, the mayoral candidate for the upstart, euroskeptic 5 Star Movement, did better than expected in the first round, winning 35% of votes. Roberto Giachetti, the Democratic Party candidate, trailed by around 10 points.
    While Mr. Renzi has looked to minimize the importance of the local vote, political figures and analysts instead see them as an important test for the 41-year-old premier, as he struggles to revive Italy’s stagnant economy.
    A victory for 37-year-old lawyer Ms. Raggi would give the 5 Star Movement, which has been closing in on the Democratic Party in recent polls, a major opportunity to prove its ability to govern. Indeed, any success in solving Rome’s intractable problems—a huge debt burden, suffocating traffic and overflowing garbage—would boost the movement’s chances at the next national elections.
    The strong showing of the 5 Star Movement and the poor results of the Democratic Party—Italy’s largest party—in some big cities during the first round of voting stems in part from Italians’ frustration with high unemployment and uncertain recovery. The 5 Star Movement has also benefited from popular frustration with Italy’s traditional parties.
    Unlike other European populist parties, the movement has mostly targeted corruption and nepotism among old-guard politicians, rather than capitalizing on rising anti-EU sentiment.

    Anger at traditional parties has peaked in particular in Rome, with a streak of corruption allegations, disastrous management and political upheaval fueling the 5 Star Movement’s popularity.
    At the same time, the Democratic Party has suffered some high profile setbacks. Giuseppe Sala, the party’s candidate in Milan, is in a tight race with center-right rival Stefano Parisi. The party is also facing tougher-than-expected challenges in Turin and Bologna, traditional strongholds.
    A loss in either Milan, Turin or Bologna would strengthen the hand of those within Mr. Renzi’s party who oppose his economic reform agenda, thus “limiting the premier’s room for maneuver,” said Wolfango Piccoli, co-president of research firm Teneo Intelligence. That could slow the pace of reform, analysts note.
    A clear defeat in the local elections would cast a shadow over a key constitutional referendum looming in October, on which Mr. Renzi has staked his political future. He has promised to resign if it fails, which would likely pave the way to early elections next year.

    Fuck the continent. Britain has always stood alone and dominated the globe because of it. What has European identity done for them? Flooded them with immigrants while their currency backs the whole Union.

    Obama and Clinton both backed Britain to stay in the EU.
    Obama's immigration policy is deadlocked.
    The people are sick of the refugee/immigration crisis.
    It's not a problem, it's a freaking crisis.

    I would love to see Merkel's face.
