Northern Ireland has again become a lightning rod in the ongoing international tug-of-war that is Brexit. The United Kingdom is set to debate changes to a portion of the Withdrawal Agreement signed in January that address trade between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. The proposed legislation prompted an emergency meeting between chief negotiators for the EU and the UK on Wednesday.
In this interview with The New American's Alex Newman, British film producer Mark Sutherland gives an update on Brexit and warns about what is happening in the United Kingdom. He says the European Union has been "destroyed" by Coronavirus. Sutherland also points out that despite the government being led by the "Conservative" Party, Britain is moving further and further in the direction of the totalitarian left, where even the most basic rights such as free speech are under threat. Beware, because this insanity is coming to America soon!
Under the guise of “saving” Europe from the coronavirus and economic calamity, European Union leaders are calling for an enormous “Marshall Plan” that would supposedly stimulate the continent's bruised economies and transform the EU. The goal: “a new Europe.” Basically, the plan calls for bribing people with their own money. This includes extracting enormous amounts of money from taxpayers by saddling them with more debt, then spending that money on EU-backed schemes. However, if the proposed plot is anything like the original U.S.-funded Marshall Plan for Europe after World War II, it will be used primarily to advance globalism and socialism — not economic recovery.
After three-and-a-half years of turmoil, doubt, and globalist subterfuge, the day British people voted for on June 23 of 2016 has finally arrived. Today, Great Britain officially left the European Union. Forty-seven years after it joined the European Economic Community (aka the Common Market), which eventually became the EU, the United Kingdom is striking out on its own — a sovereign nation once again.
Is the European Union beginning to disintegrate? Spain has become the most recent nation to threaten a Brexit-style exit from the European Union amid anger over a European Court of Justice (ECJ) ruling last Thursday that a jailed Catalan separatist leader should not have been stripped of parliamentary immunity, overruling Spanish courts on the subject.
While the main topic of this posting is NATO, we want to point to the significance of Britain’s separation from the European Union. Brexit is important, not so much because of that nation’s departure and its effect on matters involving trade. The far more important consequence of Britain leaving the European Union is that the move establishes a brake on the steady drift of Europe into a European government supplanting the once sovereign states of Europe, followed by world government. With Britain leaving, other nations have begun to consider a similar path.
