Prime Minister Theresa May today survived a vote of no-confidence brought by elements within her own party. May has announced that she will seek EU concessions on the Irish Backstop issue.
The debate over Brexit in the U.K. has morphed into a no-confidence vote in the Theresa May government itself. May has announced she won't seek reelection in 2022.
They’re usually called the Brussels police. Now some may call them the Thought Police. Whatever the case, they recently arrested the driver of a Hungarian-government-commissioned van — because they didn’t like the anti-migration message it bore. Welcome to 1984, effete social-justice-warrior style.
A migration scheme, the Brexit delay, and carbon fuel taxes cause huge, continent-wide backlash against UN-EU globalist elites.
When is “far right” actually moderate? When it’s defined by the far Left. Such appears the case with Spain’s Vox party, which was vaulted to prominence in December 2’s Andalucían election.
That recent reports of a plan to overthrow the French government came from Le Figaro, the nation’s oldest national daily and a newspaper of record, speaks volumes.

The Italians don’t have anyone like the Nebraska principal who recently tried to ban even candy canes and red and green items at Christmastime.
