EU news on Dutch referendum:
VICTORY! Dutch people power CRUSHES expansionist Brussels…and Brexit ‘will be NEXT’
THE DUTCH people have tonight delivered a devastating blow to the whole European Union project and handed a huge boost to Brexit campaigners by sinking a Brussels plot to expand further into Eastern Europe.
Except that the EU is just going to ignore the Dutch people, of course:
‘Your vote means NOTHING’ Brussels insists land grab plot WILL go ahead despite Dutch ‘no’
Arrogant Brussels politicians insisted the plot to bring Kiev further into their sphere of influence will go ahead, even though it was last night overwhelmingly rejected by the Dutch people.
Germany’s Angela Merkel told journalists the Dutch ‘no’ vote will be “managed as we have managed other difficult issues before”, whilst French president Francois Hollande said the EU will “implement and apply” the rejected treaty.
And EU President Jean-Claude Juncker today expressly REFUSED to rule out steamrollering the Dutch people’s democratic rights and enforcing the deal on them anyway.
I came across some EU talking head, saying:
“Diversity is humanity’s destiny. There is not going to be, even in the remotest places of this planet, a nation that will not see diversity in its future. That’s where humanity is heading. And those politicians trying to sell to their electorates a society that is exclusively composed of people from one culture are trying to portray a future based on a past that never existed. Therefore that future will never be.”
First point: What makes these people think they can see the future? I don’t think anybody ever knows what the future will bring. In fact, pretty much what defines the future is our complete ignorance of it. I have no idea what humanity’s “destiny” is. Nor do I believe that there is any fixed “destiny” for which we’re destined, like the terminus at the end of some railway line.
Second point: I take it that “diversity” won’t include smoking any tobacco. So what the heck does “diversity” mean?
And it seems the EU is planning on punishing Britain even if it votes to remain in it:
Last Friday I received an email from a long-standing Belgian contact containing the following extract:
You might be interested to learn that there is some debate already here about the best punishment for the UK once it has decided to stay in the EU.
The ‘here’ referred to is Brussels, just in case you were wondering.

Flu jab given to millions is ‘useless’
No surprise there then. Elsewhere, more bans:
New York City bans chewing of tobacco at Major League ballparks and other venues
De Blasio said “We don’t want our young people to think smokeless tobacco is a cool thing.” All sport venues and recreational areas are affected in the said law. He added “We are taking a huge step forward to ensure that our youth are not exposed to dangerous practices.”
The ban also includes the usage of e-cigarettes inside the ballparks as written in CNN.
No “health” risk to anyone. It’s just that “we” don’t want people chewing tobacco. “We” might not want people doing any number of other things as well, including watching baseball. And what “we” want is the only thing that matters.
And I hope Britain’s jailbirds have the spirit of Ozzie ones.
Metropolitan Remand Centre staff still off work after smoking ban riots
DOZENS of prison staff traumatised by prisoners during Victoria’s smoking ban riots have not returned to work more than 10 months after the rampage.
Prison guard union figures reveal 30 Metropolitan Remand Centre workers are battling stress, anxiety and depression and have been unable to work following the 14-hour siege in June last year.
