Brexit SPREADS across Europe: Italy, France, Holland and Denmark ALL call for referendums

{This is amusing. its almost like these other nations were thinking, ‘Hey! I didn’t know getting out was even an option! Lets take the shot!’)

POLITICIANS across Europe have called for their own referendums in the wake of Britain’s historic decision to quit the EU.

Italy’s Luigi Di Maio has called for a referendum as France, Holland and Denmark follow Britain

Italy’s anti-establishment 5-Star movement has now officially called for a on whether to keep the Euro.

Buoyed by big gains in local elections, Luigi Di Maio, a vice president of the lower house of parliament, said: “We want a consultative referendum on the Euro.

As expected, the EU will not let go gracefully

You have to listen very carefully for the one word answer Junker, one of the many many insanely overpaid unelected bureaucrats who are busy deconstructing Europe, gives when he is asked if the cascade of nations wishing to regain national sovereignty means the end of the EU. I had to play it several times.

  1. Dutch anti-immigration leader Wilders calls for Dutch referendum on EU membership

    Dutch anti-immigration leader Geert Wilders called on Friday for a referendum on the Netherlands’ membership in the European Union after Britain voted to leave the 28-member bloc.

    Wilders, who is leading opinion polls, said if he is elected prime minister in March general elections in the Netherlands he too will call a referendum.

    • XXX !!! BRAVO BRITS !!! XXX
      And never mind the stock market titters – Survival of our Civilisation is more than Merkel-Euros and Petro Dollars!

      I hope this puts some new wind into the sails of Marine Le Pen too who promised a referendum along the same lines.

  2. Good on you, Great Britain!
    So happy for you, our dear ally.
    The most encouraging news in a very long time. You’ve done for yourself and you’re doing for others. Bless you and yours.

  3. “…Rise, like lions after slumber
    In unvanquishable number!
    Shake your chains to earth like dew
    Which in sleep had fallen on you:
    Ye are many—they are few!”

  4. Trump Butterfly Effect.
    No coincidence he is now in Scotland. Press conference tomorrow.
    Next step: Marine Le Pen and, of course, Trump as POTUS.
    Followed by Eastern Bloc.
    Who is not sleeping tonight besides Cameron? Merkel.
    Sadiq Khan just lost a lot of his power.
    Nothern Ireland and Scotland now are talking about leaving U.K.
    Coming back to natural orders of things: Smaller is best.

  5. Brilliant! Every Briton can walk tall today. That movie Independence Day is going to sell out.

    Scotland may have voted Remain for the very same reason they couldn’t vote their own independence last year – subsidised and dependent on other people’s money. A moribund mentality serving a Political Class.

    Also the demographics of voters will be interesting.

    Now we scrutinize the politicians.

    • I’ll betcha you know precisely what the demographic of the voters is.

      Interesting how they kept referring to the fact that people with university degrees tended to be pro remain. Is the purpose of a university only to subtly brainwash intelligent people into becoming left wing voting-puppets?

  6. Brexit sparks calls for other EU votes

    France’s National Front leader Marine Le Pen said the French must now also have the right to choose.

    Dutch anti-immigration politician Geert Wilders said the Netherlands deserved a “Nexit” vote while Italy’s Northern League said: “Now it’s our turn”.

    Mateo Salvini, the leader of Italy’s anti-immigration Northern League, tweeted: “Hurrah for the courage of free citizens! Heart, brain and pride defeated lies, threats and blackmail. “THANK YOU UK, now it’s our turn.”

    • Pay close attention to the international monetary markets, the euro fell to $1.11 the speed of the EUs collapse can be charted by what the euro does. When the worlds money merchants don’t want to buy a nations currency as an investment that nation/currency has moved into the failed category.

  7. help we are drowning in liberal tears ! ” for god,nigel and st George ” I am now a free Englishman with thanks to the celtic people of wales, and true anglo Saxons of this once again ” green and pleasant land [ ed England ]

  8. I went to bed not daring to hope, I got up hearing a left-wing French radio stations female speaking in sombre tones, I turned o the Television and I was utterly delighted. I could not vote as I left the UK too long ago, but if I could I would have voted to leave because for me it was all about democracy, the simple need to vote for the people setting policy. Nothing would have stopped me, no fear no uncertainty or doubt, that was clear to me, the undemocratic EU has to die.

    I noted that Francois Hollande made a threat to people like me living in France that we would lose benefits etc., a man supposed to be caring for people threatening peoples like that, does he have no shame.

    Well Mr Hollane I would rather die free and thanks to my English compatriots I will die a free man, I can no longer be defined as a citizen of Europe, I am free. Thanks…

    • Agincourt , waterloo , trafalger , Normandy , no more Germanic and napoleonic law ” gods greatest gift ,to be born an Englishman “

        • With the exception of one man from Spain and one female Cherokee all of my ancestry is English. My country isn’t the only thing descended from England, now to regain our freedom and save our nation from the foreign invaders that are bent on destroying her.

            • A kid was kidnapped for Castile, his parents couldn’t pay the ransom so to save his life he joined the crew of the pirate ship. He jumped ship in New Orleans and made his way up the Mississippi to Cap Girardeau and settled there. This was in the 1700s before we bought the Louisiana Purchase.

    • They haven’t seen anything yet, this is the beginning of the end for the left, the people are speaking and the wise are listening. The left is in full panic mode because the power of the people is being felt, power to drive the left out of the civilized nations of the world.

        • Yucki you and Rita among others talk about how I am optimistic when things are darkest. Now you know why, during the Cold War the US lost every military campaign but one (Greece in the late 1940s) but won the war. I lived through times when I thought the only way out of being conquered was a nuclear war. Then I read history and know things have been this bad many times, WWII, the Napoleonic wars (despite our siding with France it was Britain fighting alone for freedom) for that matter the US revolution the world has been in massive trouble and the people defending freedom seems doomed to defeat. If they remain strong and continue to fight they win. Evil is never as strong as it seems.

  9. Thank you for that glorious banner,today every-one seems alive,with smiles on their faces,the lion awakes! On the subject of no-go areas,it occurs to me that the simplest way of bringing the wogs under control,is to cut off their utilities ,water, gas,electricity,until they behave themselves,as they attack fire-engines,ambulances and the police,they obviously do not want these protections of a civilised state ,so let them do without the rest of it.

      • Sounds good to me, this is what should have been done a long time ago. And it should have been done in all western nations.

        • sounds good to me, too.
          Although it does not sounds good for many people in Scotland. I think a lot of them thought they will still get handouts from UE.(majority of Scots were against Brexit) Also , unfortunately, many of than are leftists.

          • The left is doomed, Obama and the EU are the last great hopes for the left and both are going down in defeat. This is why the left is getting violent in the US and turning to oppressive dictatorial laws in the EU.

            Even the dumbest on the left know they are in trouble, they won’t admit it but they know. They are trying violence and oppression to hold on to power to avoid the pen or the noose. As long as we continue to fight we can’t lose, the only way we can lose is to believe the lies of the left and surrender.

    • They may call for referendums, but I am not sure they will get it, at the moment.
      I mean the politicians who call for referendums are popular but not as popular.
      Also in Britain situation is different than situation in other EU countries. British were always more independent from the continent, from EU.

      • Don’t give up, the only way we can lose is to surrender.

        This is the complete text of Patrick Henry’s speech
        at St. John’s Church in Richmond, Virginia on March 23, 1775.

        No man, Mr. President, thinks more highly than I do of the patriotism, as well as abilities, of the very worthy gentlemen who have just addressed the House. But different men often see the same subject in different lights; and, therefore, I hope it will not be thought disrespectful to those gentlemen if, entertaining as I do opinions of a character very opposite to theirs, I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve. This is no time for ceremony.

        The question before the House is one of awful moment to this country. For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.

        Mr. President, it is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth, and listen to the song of that siren till she transforms us into beasts. Is this the part of wise men, engaged in a great and arduous struggle for liberty? Are we disposed to be of the number of those who, having eyes, see not, and, having ears, hear not, the things which so nearly concern their temporal salvation? For my part, whatever anguish of spirit it may cost, I am willing to know the whole truth; to know the worst, and to provide for it.

        I have but one lamp by which my feet are guided, and that is the lamp of experience. I know of no way of judging of the future but by the past. And judging by the past, I wish to know what there has been in the conduct of the British ministry for the last ten years to justify those hopes with which gentlemen have been pleased to solace themselves and the House. Is it that insidious smile with which our petition has been lately received? Trust it not, sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss. Ask yourselves how this gracious reception of our petition comports with those warlike preparations which cover our waters and darken our land. Are fleets and armies necessary to a work of love and reconciliation? Have we shown ourselves so unwilling to be reconciled that force must be called in to win back our love? Let us not deceive ourselves, sir. These are the implements of war and subjugation; the last arguments to which kings resort. I ask gentlemen, sir, what means this martial array, if its purpose be not to force us to submission? Can gentlemen assign any other possible motive for it? Has Great Britain any enemy, in this quarter of the world, to call for all this accumulation of navies and armies? No, sir, she has none. They are meant for us: they can be meant for no other. They are sent over to bind and rivet upon us those chains which the British ministry have been so long forging.

        And what have we to oppose to them? Shall we try argument? Sir, we have been trying that for the last ten years. Have we anything new to offer upon the subject? Nothing. We have held the subject up in every light of which it is capable; but it has been all in vain. Shall we resort to entreaty and humble supplication? What terms shall we find which have not been already exhausted? Let us not, I beseech you, sir, deceive ourselves. Sir, we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on. We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne, and have implored its interposition to arrest the tyrannical hands of the ministry and Parliament. Our petitions have been slighted; our remonstrances have produced additional violence and insult; our supplications have been disregarded; and we have been spurned, with contempt, from the foot of the throne! In vain, after these things, may we indulge the fond hope of peace and reconciliation. There is no longer any room for hope. If we wish to be free — if we mean to preserve inviolate those inestimable privileges for which we have been so long contending — if we mean not basely to abandon the noble struggle in which we have been so long engaged, and which we have pledged ourselves never to abandon until the glorious object of our contest shall be obtained — we must fight! I repeat it, sir, we must fight! An appeal to arms and to the God of hosts is all that is left us!

        They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger? Will it be the next week, or the next year? Will it be when we are totally disarmed, and when a British guard shall be stationed in every house? Shall we gather strength by irresolution and inaction? Shall we acquire the means of effectual resistance by lying supinely on our backs and hugging the delusive phantom of hope, until our enemies shall have bound us hand and foot? Sir, we are not weak if we make a proper use of those means which the God of nature hath placed in our power. The millions of people, armed in the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us. Besides, sir, we shall not fight our battles alone. There is a just God who presides over the destinies of nations, and who will raise up friends to fight our battles for us. The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable — and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come.

        It is in vain, sir, to extenuate the matter. Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace — but there is no peace. The war is actually begun! The next gale that sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms! Our brethren are already in the field! Why stand we here idle? What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!/blockquote>

        • What most people don’t know is that Thomas Paine was English born and bred, he was a very recent immigrant to the colonies. I am not sure what his reasons for immigrating were but after we won our independence he went to Europe and tried to spread the revolution over there.

    • Benjamin Franklin once said: “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.”

    • The crash is coming no matter what we do, the left has created the perfect economic storm and we all have to ride out the storm.

      Gold is a good hedge but not as good as most people think, if we go back to the precious metal money standard (which we probably will) gold will be very expensive and you won’t be able to get change for most purchases. You need a lot of silver along with the gold.

      (FYI, I can’t afford to buy either so I am in trouble)

        • I won’t, remember that before we entered WWII a lot of Yanks went north to enlist and during Nam a lot of Canuks (sp?) came south and enlisted. We are brother nations from the same mother and when push comes to shove we will fight together. The above statements don’t mean there won’t be family fights where we call each other everything in the book.
