The absurdity of a proxy election being analysed; with incomplete data and extrapolated to future events, regarding constitutional matters perhaps even of life and death and war and peace. When the body to which the elected people are to be sent is a toothless sheen of lipstick upon the fascist Pig which is the EU, and a flawed institution from which the electorate has already voted to secede from is perhaps reflected in the low turnout in the UK this time again, and historically.


Perhaps what it really tells us is the people who choose not to vote are actually the more articulate, why participate in what is only really a show, a pretence designed merely to give some sort of legitimacy to something with no democratic legitimacy what so ever.

On Sunday, the European Parliament will be transformed into a big media hub where around 1,300 journalists will follow and report from the elections.

“The media interest for these elections has been much higher than for previous elections. We never had so many journalists registered for the election night. This clearly demonstrates the growing importance of this trans-national democratic exercise, which is unique in the world” said Jaume Duch, spokesperson of the European Parliament mentioning also the more than 200 journalists coming from non-EU countries, including 54 from the US and 21 from Japan and 20 from China.

The Appearance of Democracy must be seen to be done?

“the hemicycle has been equipped with 110 TV stand-up positions – of which 55 positions in the chamber, 45 live positions for radio stations”

The scripted narrative will surely deliver a Tory landslide or will it? We will see tomorrow how strong the Establishment spin machine remains in France. There seems to be rather a lot of Rovian type telekinesis being practised by the Neo-Liberal apologists who invariably do not acknowledge their ideological master.

´´The aide said that guys like me were “in what we call the reality-based community,” which he defined as people who “believe that solutions emerge from your judicious study of discernible reality.” I nodded and murmured something about enlightenment principles and empiricism. He cut me off. “That’s not the way the world really works anymore.” He continued “We’re an empire now, and when we act, we create our own reality. And while you’re studying that reality—judiciously, as you will—we’ll act again, creating other new realities, which you can study too, and that’s how things will sort out. We’re history’s actors … and you, all of you, will be left to just study what we do.”

The United Kingdom general election debates of 2010 consisted of a series of three leaders’ debates between the leaders of the three main parties contesting the 2010 United Kingdom general electionGordon BrownPrime Minister and leader of the Labour PartyDavid CameronLeader of the Opposition and Conservative Party; and Nick Clegg, leader of the third largest political party in the UK, the Liberal Democrats. They were the first such debates to be broadcast live in the run-up to a UK election.
The debates ran without a break for 90 minutes and were broadcast weekly by ITVBSkyB and the BBC over three successive Thursday evenings starting on 15 April. They were moderated by Alastair StewartAdam Boulton and David Dimbleby respectively. The first half of each debate focused on a particular theme (domestic, international and economic affairs), before general issues were discussed. The questions were not disclosed to the leaders before the debate.
In addition to the leaders’ debates, on 29 March, the three main parties’ financial spokesmen participated in a debate focusing on the economy, with the Chancellor of the Exchequer Alistair Darling debating with the Shadow Chancellor George Osborne and Liberal Democrats’ Treasury spokesman Vince Cable on Channel 4. Debates also took place between 19 April and 5 May, a series of debates also took place on the BBC political TV series The Daily Politics, between members of the incumbent Labour Cabinet and their ConservativeLiberal Democrat counterparts and representatives from the Green Party, the Scottish National PartyPlaid Cymru and the UK Independence Party.
Debates were also held in Scotland and Wales and Northern Ireland, due to the devolved nature of various aspects of government in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. In Scotland and Wales, representatives of three main parties were joined by respective nationalist party representatives who stand MPs only in Scotland and Wales, while in Northern Ireland, due to the main parties having no seats, debates were held between the four largest Northern Irish parties. The arrangements for the UK-wide leaders debates were criticised for being restricted to the main UK parties excluding other national minor parties and nationalist parties in Scotland and Wales, for covering many domestic matters which are devolved from Westminster, and also for being held in three locations solely in England.

The term “United Kingdom general election debates” of 2015 refers to a series of four live television programmes featuring the main political party leaders that took place in March/April 2015 in the run-up to the general election. After various prior proposals and arguments over which parties should be represented,[1][2] there was a single debate between the leaders of seven British parties:[3]
There was a second debate involving the “challengers”, those in the above list who were not members of the outgoing coalition government. There were also two programmes – one with Cameron and Miliband; one with Cameron, Miliband and Clegg – in which the leaders answered questions but did not debate head-to-head.
Following the result of the election, a survey of 3,019 people, carried out by Panelbase, found that 38% of voters considered the debates to have influenced their voting intention.[4][5]

The United Kingdom general election of 2017 is scheduled to take place on 8 June 2017. Each of the 650 parliamentary constituencies will elect one Member of Parliament (MP) to the House of Commons, the lower house of Parliament.
In line with the Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011, an election had not been due until 7 May 2020, but a call for a snap election by Prime Minister Theresa May received the necessary two-thirds majority in a 522 to 13 vote in the House of Commons on 19 April 2017.
The Conservative Party, which has governed since 2015 (and as a senior coalition partner from 2010), is defending a majority of 12 against the Labour Party, the official opposition. The third largest party, the Scottish National Party, won 56 of the 59 Scottish constituencies in 2015. The Liberal Democrats, and the Northern Irish Democratic Unionist Party, are the fourth and fifth largest parties, with 9 and 8 seats respectively.

Negotiation positions following Britain’s invocation of Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union in March 2017 to leave the EU are expected to dominate the election campaign. Opinion polling for the popular vote since the election was called has given May’s Conservatives a significant lead over Labour led by Jeremy Corbyn.

So very little has changed since 2016, I think the prelim or predicate in the article by Yannis nails the reasons why.” The process any member state must follow to exit the EU is governed by Article 50 of the bloc’s Lisbon Treaty, which, ironically, was authored by a British diplomat keen to deter exits from the EU. ”

The EU has hardened its stance on Federalism of a very curious sort More Brussels and less Europe federalism with an ECB and Commission that simply does not allow subsidiarity in questions of monetary policy which is causing the French and Italian problems going on at the moment for which Mr Macron and Mssrs Tusk and Junker seem so blissfully in denial of. Karl Bildt was prescient in these pages here on these questions more generally.
The importance of Subsidiarity and the competencies of the commission are highlighted in this blog.

Another problem is the question of EU military unification a process which has continued under the radar of the Brexit Fuss.

So its as we were. Democracy Unfolded Emergent Reality of Brexit. (a poem)!/v/tonefreqhz/s1spzamx

Hierarchy and Fascism – How the Ruling Few are Destroying Democracy

Most people of course will recite the “life liberty and the pursuit of happiness” when asked what they recall of the document but mine would be the lines that follow:

“That to secure these rights governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…”

This says everything. Our rights are unalienable. And the only purpose of government is to secure these rights.

So why is it, how is it, that government is the very thing which we find ourselves defending against its tyranny?

There is now evidence that the EU (via companies it funds) have donated to Remain campaigns in the following;

1. EU referendum.
2. 2017 General Election.

How long until the evidence shows the interference in these EU elections?
