Brexit is not a stand-alone or binary question I have commented before that Brexit is about an emperor and the battle for supremacy between two Eunuchs charged with looking after his harem.
This Global Governance question seems missing again from the present discourse on Section 50, the context is much wider than the UK divorcing the EU, this is not a mere Marriage or even a menage a trios breaking up, this is more akin to a polygamous harem of the Ottoman Sultans involving some sort of internecine struggle between two of his, arguably high to middle-ranking eunuchs, for more recognition or status.
The Global Governance context was something high on the agenda of the Brussels elites back in 2006 when A Bruegel Policy brief entitled ´Global Governance: An Agenda for Europe´ was published to The Prime Minister of Finland’s office. The full paper is available at http://www.bruegel.org/
The full paper, only 25 pages long and worth a read may be found at this link.
(This Policy Brief builds on a paper prepared at the request of the Secretariat of the Economic Council of the Finnish prime minister. See “The EU and the Governance of Globalisation”, Bruegel Working Paper n° 2006/02, September 2006).
The Military-Industrial Complex and Brexit. A hypothesis.
The film suggests a plausible motive for a highly organised plot to remove Jo Cox from her position of MP. Her departure occurred just one week before the UK Brexit referendum and the film explains why this may have happened.
A similar Assassination took place in Sweden in another EU referendum campaign in 2003 of Anna Lindh, there are of course then question going back to the Assassination of Olof Palme and of Course JFK? Brexit is a Geo-Political Event and TINA will be obeyed.

Trailer Shadow World.
THE ONLY BUSINESS THAT COUNTS ITS PROFITS IN BILLIONS AND ITS LOSSES IN HUMAN LIVES.
Directed by Johan Grimonprez (“dial H-I-S-T-O-R-Y”) and in part based on Corruption Watch UK founder Andrew Feinstein’s globally acclaimed book The Shadow World: Inside the Global Arms Trade, the film reveals how the international trade in weapons – with the complicity of governments and intelligence agencies, investigative and prosecutorial bodies, weapons manufacturers, dealers and agents – fosters corruption, determines economic and foreign policies, undermines democracy and creates widespread suffering.
The film unravels a number of the world’s largest and most corrupt arms deals through those involved in perpetrating and investigating them. It illustrates why this trade accounts for almost 40% of all corruption in global trade, and how it operates in a parallel legal universe, in which the national security elite who drive it are seldom prosecuted for their often illegal actions. SHADOW WORLD posits alternatives through the experience of a peace activist and war correspondent, as well as through the voice of Eduardo Galeano who contributed selections from his stories for the film.
Ultimately SHADOW WORLD reveals the real costs of war, the way the arms trade drives it, how weapons of war are turned against citizens of liberal democracies and how the trade decreases rather than enhances security for us all. In shedding light on how our realities are being constructed, the film offers a way for audiences to see through this horror, in the hopes of creating a better future.
The Spiders Web, The Panama Papers and International Finance Capital.
Ylva Anna Maria Lindh (19 June 1957 – 11 September 2003) was a Swedish Social Democratic politician who served as Minister for Foreign Affairs from 1998 to 2003 and Minister for the Environment from 1994 to 1996. She served as a Member of the Riksdag (MP) for Södermanland County from 1982 to 1985 and 1998 to 2003.
On 16:00 10 September 2003, while shopping in the ladies’ section of the Nordiska Kompaniet department store in central Stockholm for a televised debate later that night on the referendum about Sweden‘s adoption of the euro, Lindh was stabbed in the chest, abdomen and arms. At the time, she was not protected by bodyguards from the Swedish Security Service; this proved controversial, given the similarity between Lindh’s murder and that of Prime Minister Olof Palme in 1986 (the first murder of a government member in modern Swedish history).
She was rushed to Karolinska University Hospital, where she underwent surgery and blood transfusions for over nine hours. Lindh reportedly experienced severe internal bleeding and liver damage; her condition remained grave, although she appeared to have improved immediately after the surgery. An hour later, however, complications necessitated additional surgery; at 05:29 on 11 September 2003, she was pronounced dead. After a private briefing of her relatives and the government (and contradicting news coverage that she was alive in “grave” but “stable” condition), the announcement of her death made headlines across the European Union.
The murderer escaped after the crime; according to eyewitness accounts, his actions appeared deliberate and systematic. A phone number was set up for anyone who might know anything about the crime, and a massive manhunt (centred on Stockholm) was launched in Sweden. After two days a photo of a man believed to be the murderer, taken by a camera on a floor above the murder scene, was released by police. Several items (pieces of clothing and a knife) believed to be connected with the murder were found outside the department store near a Stockholm metro station. At the crime scene, police obtained a handprint believed to be the killer’s. Images of the suspect from the store’s surveillance system were published on 13 and 14 September.
A man was apprehended on 16 September and detained as a suspect on “justifiable grounds” (the lowest level of suspicion), but was cleared of all charges and released. On 24 September, the police announced that a suspect, Mijailo Mijailović (born in Sweden to Serb parents), had been apprehended and arrested at a higher level of suspicion: “probable cause“. On 25 September, it was announced that Mijailović’s DNA profile matched that of hairs on a baseball cap left at (or near) the scene of the crime, and he resembled the man filmed in the store where Lindh was attacked.
After denying all involvement Mijailović confessed to the crime on 6 January 2004, providing a full account of the events of 10 September in an extra session of police questioning requested by Peter Althin (Mijailović’s counsel). He was found guilty in a trial held from 14 to 17 January, and after a psychiatric evaluation was sentenced to life imprisonment on 23 March. On 8 July, an appeals court overturned Mijailović’s sentence (after tests concluded he was mentally ill at the time of the murder), and Mijailović was transferred to a secure psychiatric ward. Prosecutors appealed to the Supreme Court of Sweden, which reinstated his sentence to life imprisonment on 2 December of that year. Mijailović renounced his Swedish citizenship, and has unsuccessfully requested to be transferred to Serbia.
Despite Lindh’s popularity and the timing of the assassination, the murder was not considered a political act (although a newspaper found a picture of Mijailović listening to Liberal People’s Party leader Lars Leijonborg in clothing similar to what he wore during the murder). Mijailović admitted that he found the speech “entertaining”, but denied allegations that it influenced his actions. In a 2011 interview with the newspaper Expressen, Mijailović said he had “felt hatred of [all] politicians” at the time, he had been high on a hypnotic drug at the time, and it was “a coincidence” that his victim had been Lindh. Mijailović has received counselling and other support services since his imprisonment.
Reaction and legacy
Lindh was an outspoken campaigner for Sweden to join the Eurozone in the referendum held on 14 September 2003. After the attack, all euro-campaign events were immediately cancelled. Television campaign advertisements were withdrawn, and all TV stations in Sweden halted commercials from the evening on the 10th through the 11th to help the public-service channels of SVT report news. TV3 merged its programming with ZTV and TV8, airing Efterlyst (a programme similar to America’s Most Wanted) for people to send information directly to the police to help find the murderer. All campaign advertising on billboards was removed and advertising in printed media cancelled. The murder was seen as an attack on Sweden’s open society, requiring unity rather than political campaigning.
Following a midday meeting on 12 September, by Prime Minister Göran Persson and the leaders of the other political parties in the Riksdag, the decision was made not to let Lindh’s murder affect the referendum. Information and resources on the referendum’s issues would be fully available, but no political campaigning or debate would take place. Party leaders unanimously pledged support for the ballot as planned, and to abide by its result. Despite speculation that sympathy for Lindh could influence the voting, the euro was rejected in the referendum. Following her death, Junior Foreign Affairs Minister Jan O. Karlsson, was appointed acting Minister for Foreign Affairs. In October of that year, Laila Freivalds was appointed the successor to Lindh’s cabinet post.
