- Europe’s ‘Free World’ Impostors Are Falling — German, French and British Leaders on the Brink
The British Parliament yesterday found the Government of Theresa May in contempt of Parliament, for refusing to turn over the Legal Advice from the Attorney General on the legal impact of Prime Minister May’s phony Brexit deal, which leaves Britain in the Custom’s Union and does not resolve the difficult issue of the border between the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Parliament also ruled that the Parliament, not the Prime Minister, shall determine what steps to take if her Brexit deal is voted down next Tuesday in the Parliamentary vote, as it is expected it will. May’s government, as the old English nursery rhyme goes, is about to have a great fall, with no hope that all the King’s Horses and all the King’s Men can put it together again. The problem is, that she will likely be replaced with somebody as crazy as Boris Johnson as the Tory party leader, although a new general election could result from the chaos, probably bringing in Jeremy Corbin and the Labour Party.
Then look across the Channel. French President Emmanuel Macron, who is implementing the insane Paris Climate accord by taxing carbon at the expense of the already declining standard of living of the citizenry, finally backed down to the mass strike phenomenon of the “yellow vests,” and postponed a planned tax on fuel, only to discover that the people will not stand down in return for a few crumbs. He may soon fall as well.
Next door in Germany, Angela Merkel (who was anointed the “leader of the free world” by the British when Trump was elected) is stepping down as head of the CDU on Friday, after having lost support from her party. She says she will remain as Chancellor, but, as the London Daily Expressheadlines today: “END OF MERKEL: Friedrich Merz CDU victory THIS WEEKEND could spark IMMINENT exit” as Chancellor. Helga Zepp-LaRouche, head of Germany’s Bürgerrechtsbewegung Solidarität party, noted today that the two candidates vying to replace Merkel as CDU chief are disasters in their own right.
