‘EU Survival is AT RISK’ Brussels’ Chief Reveals ‘Existential Crisis’ in Shock Admission

  • ‘EU Survival is AT RISK’ Brussels’ Chief Reveals ‘Existential Crisis’ in Shock Admission
    by JOEY MILLAR, http://www.express.co.uk/
    THE VERY survival of the European Union is now at risk, two chief Europhiles have admitted in a surprisingly open condemnation of the project.

    As the bloc celebrates the 60th anniversary of its founding, the duo admitted it was in danger of collapsing unless major changes take place. The grim assessment was made by two of the ’s biggest names, Guy Verhofstadt, the European Parliament’s Brexit negotiator, and Manfred Weber, an MEP and key ally of Angela Merkel in her German coalition government. Enthusiasm which had greeted the union when it was first formed had long since given way to “disillusion and disarray”, the pair admitted.

    In a joint opinion piece for website Politico, they said: “Now, for the first time, the European Union’s survival is at risk. Faced with this existential crisis, it cannot survive unchanged. “When they signed the Treaty of Rome 60 years ago, six nations that had been at war for decades took a crucial first step toward establishing an unprecedented period of peace in Europe.

Full Steam Ahead! Queen Set to Sign Brexit into LAW as May Prepares to Trigger Article 50

  • Full Steam Ahead! Queen Set to Sign Brexit into LAW as May Prepares to Trigger Article 50
    by ALISON LITTLE, DEPUTY POLITICAL EDITOR, http://www.express.co.uk/
    THE Queen was poised to sign Britain’s Brexit into law as early as this morning, it emerged yesterday as Parliament prepared to pass the crucial legislation to put last year’s historic referendum vote into action.

    A copy of the European Union (Notification of Withdrawal) Bill was set to be raced to Buckingham Palace for the monarch to give her Royal Assent – possibly at her desk after breakfast when she customarily deals with official papers.

    But Theresa May confounded predictions she would today exercise the power newly conferred on her by the legislation to trigger up to two years of formal exit talks with the EU. The Prime Minister is now expected to invoke Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty towards the end of the month – just before her self-imposed deadline of March 31. But MPs can grill her on her plans today in the Commons when she reports back on last Thursday’s EU summit in Brussels.

Marine Le Pen as President would Spell ‘Total Collapse’ of EU And Euro, US Ambassador Says

Marine Le Pen, a ferocious Eurosceptic, is surging in the polls. Marine Le Pen described the EU as a “nightmare”.

  • Marine Le Pen as President would Spell ‘Total Collapse’ of EU And Euro, US Ambassador Says
    by ROMINA MCGUINNESS, http://www.express.co.uk/
    FRANCE’S ambassador to the United States said if Marine Le Pen became the French president it would spell the end of the European Union and the collapse of the euro.

    Gérard Araud claimed it would be a “total disaster” if became France’s president. Mr Araud said that the leader of Front National would trigger a “political earthquake” if her much-trumpeted bid to pull out of the EU via a ‘Frexit’ referendum was approved by voters.

    In a candid interview with the Washington Post, he said: “In diplomatic terms, I would say it would be a total disaster… It means the collapse of the EU, because the EU, without France, doesn’t make any sense.” 

    The government official added the far-right chief would plunge the entire world into financial chaos if Mrs Le Pen severed ties between France and the soon-to-be 27-member bloc.

    He added: “It (Frexit) means the collapse of the euro and a financial crisis, which will have consequences throughout the world.”

    Earlier this week, Thierry Dana, France’s envoy in Japan, also warned against voting for Mrs Le Pen in the upcoming presidential election – which will be staged in April and May – in an comment piece published by the French centre-left daily Le Monde on Tuesday. Mr Dana pledged “not to serve” under the hard-right candidate if she is voted into power in the spring.

MULTI-SPEED EU: Euro Leaders to Discuss Proposal ‘Some Nations Can Move Faster’ in Bloc

Revelation 13 New King James Version (NKJV) –
The Beast from the Sea: 13 Then I[a] stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast rising up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns,[b] and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads a blasphemous name. 2 Now the beast which I saw was like a leopard, his feet were like the feet of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority.

  • MULTI-SPEED EU: Euro Leaders to Discuss Proposal ‘Some Nations Can Move Faster’ in Bloc
    by ALIX CULBERTSON, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EUROPEAN Union (EU) bosses are pushing an agenda in which some member states are favoured over others after Britain leaves the bloc, a new document has revealed.

    The draft declaration, to be discussed today at the EU Summit in Brussels, says the future of the bloc will see members working together to promote “the common good”. However, the draft says there must be an understanding some countries will move “closer, further and faster” in some areas.

    Put together by the European Commission, headed up by Jean-Claude Juncker, the final point of the two page document, says: “We will work together to promote the common good, on the understanding that some of us can move close, further and faster in some areas, keeping the door open to those who want to join later, and preserving the integrity of the single market, the Schengen area, and the EU as a whole.

    “An undivided and indivisible Union, which acts together whenever possible, at different paces and intensity whenever necessary.” The draft, to be adopted in Rome later this month after Theresa May triggers Article 50 to leave the bloc, backs up plans for a multi-speed Europe which leaders of four major European countries championed earlier this month.

Brussels Crumbling? Verhofstadt Warns of EU ‘CRISIS’ Amid Brexit ‘DISASTER’

  • Brussels Crumbling? Verhofstadt Warns of EU ‘CRISIS’ Amid Brexit ‘DISASTER’
    by JOE BARNES, http://www.express.co.uk/
    BREXIT has left MEPs and eurocrats fearing for the future of the European Union, with a key Brussels figure warning the bloc is in “crisis” in the wake of Britain’s historic EU referendum decision.

    Guy Verhofstadt, who is the European Parliament’s lead negotiator, described the vote as a “disaster” for the EU, claiming it is important for all parties to reach a successful arrangement.

    attended her final EU summit before she is expected to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty, afterwards spelled out her desire to get down to business and begin Brexit negotiations with Brussels.

    Mr Verhofstadt, however, warned his European Parliament colleagues will have the power to veto any deal between the UK and EU which is presented to them. Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, the Belgian politician said: “The fact that a big country like Britain is leaving the , I think the most negative fallout from this brexit referendum has not been, for now, economically.

Brussels Sidelined as Europe’s Superpowers Meet at Versailles to Thrash Out Bloc’s Future

Daniel 7:7 – ” … behold, a fourth beast, dreadful and terrible, exceedingly strong. It had huge iron teeth; it was devouring, breaking in pieces, and trampling the residue with its feet. It was different from all the beasts that were before it, and it had ten horns.”

  • Brussels Sidelined as Europe’s Superpowers Meet at Versailles to Thrash Out Bloc’s Future
    by NICK GUTTERIDGE, BRUSSELS CORRESPONDENT, http://www.express.co.uk/
    EUROPEAN superpowers will meet to thrash out the future direction for the struggling bloc this evening, but eurocrats appeared to have been sidelined from the process.

    France, Germany, Italy and Spain will come together at the grand palace of Versailles for a crisis summit as infighting over where to go next threatens to consume the EU from the inside. The conference has been called by French leader Francois Hollande in response to the publication of Jean-Claude Juncker’s white paper last week, which maps out five potential pathways for the project. 

    But before it even began the two heavyweights appeared to be on a collision course, with the outgoing president favouring a two-speed Europe and the EU boss opting for a full-blown superstate. Neither Mr Juncker nor the EU Council president Donald Tusk will be in Paris this evening, and their diaries show that they do not have any meetings or telephone calls scheduled with the four leaders who will be present.

Deutsche Bank MELTDOWN: Shares Plunge as Bank Tries to Raise £6.9BILLION in Call for Cash

breaking-get_ready_for_the_collapse_of_deutschebank

  • Deutsche Bank MELTDOWN: Shares Plunge as Bank Tries to Raise £6.9BILLION in Call for Cash
    by LANA CLEMENTS, http://www.express.co.uk/
    DEUTSCHE Bank shares have dived by six per cent after it announced a shock share sale aimed at raising €8billion (£6.9bn) of cash in a desperate bid to shore up the German giant.

    The chief executive John Cryan previously said such a move would be a last resort for the bank. Now Germany’s largest lender wants to raise the extra capital amid reports of more legal issues, which could lead to more big fines for the troubled firm. It is the fourth time the bank has had to turn to investors for extra cash since 2010 and suggests Mr Cryan’s previous plans to save the bank has failed.  

    The boss has tried to slash costs for the bank by cutting thousands of jobs as well as bonuses for its workers, on top of selling off parts of the business. Mr Cryan said: “On strategy, it’s obvious we had a change of heart. “These measures will make Deutsche Bank stronger and place us back firmly on a path to sustainable growth.”

    Deutsche last month posted a larger than expected net loss of €1.4bn (£1.2bn) for 2016, as it struggled to cope with costs of regulator fines, as well as low interest rates. This year the bank has already settled a huge £5.2bn ($7.2bn) penalty relating to the 2008 financial crisis, as well as a £504million charge over a Russian money laundering plan.

    Now the lender reportedly faces further hits over previous actions in the forex market. Deutsche has now revealed plans to  the huge rights issue of 687.5 million new shares on March 21, priced at around a 39 per cent discount to Friday’s closing price of 19.14 euros. It’s also looking to raise another €2bn (£1.7bn) by listing stake in its asset management business and sell off other assets.
