UK: Independence Day.

UPDATE 25/6/16 – Junker tries bully tactics to get his own way and stop the world seeing his EU failings !

‘Get out as soon as possible’ Jean-Claude Juncker gives UK marching orders post-EU vote

To leave the EU, the ‘leaving’ nation has to implement Article 50 of the EU Treaty of Lisbon, which then gives them 2 years to negotiate leaving terms. –

From what we see and hear in the UK today, Article 50 can only be started by the nation which is leaving, not by the EU.

They can pressure the leaving country, but they cannot start Article 50.  It has never happened before – the UK leave is the first time.

Juncker is attempting to put the UK under pressure because he is aware that there is a lot of bad feeling throughout the EU member states about the way in which the EU is being run and where it exactly is going.

At the same time, leaders fear that Brexit could trigger a domino effect as the bloc without Britain becomes less attractive to liberal, rich northern states such as Denmark and the Netherlands, where demands are growing for copy-cat plebiscites.

This management is his responsibility and he does not want to be seen as someone who does not have control – hence the ‘marching orders’ he is now giving.  Note he is not implementing Article 50; because as we say, that is started by the leaving state only when it is ready to implement.  Each day that Article 50 is NOT implemented, more people become aware of the massive failings of the EU and those controlling it.  Junker does not want the world to see this, hence his tone.  See below to get our view (twice – live Turkish exports and Serbia) to see just how the EU IGNORES the wants of the EU citizen.  The EU does nothing – no wonder Junker does not want the world to see this !

Well, the UK will implement Article 50 when the UK is ready – and Mr Junker will have to face the music until that happens, which could be another 3-4 months, only when a new Prime Minister is elected in the UK and ready to take up the very important negotiations of leaving.



Well it has all been happening here (in the UK) during the last 18 hours.  We cannot post on all events as things are happening so quickly.

The UK has now voted to leave the EU and we saw the Prime Minister David Cameron say that he is resigning at around 8am this morning.

The UK has now sent a clear message to Europe; and to be honest, we don’t think the EU was really expecting a UK leave.  Everyone has been taken by surprise; especially EU leaders as the UK vote out now sets a precedent for In / Out votes in many other EU nations – Denmark, The Netherlands and France to name just 3.  Angela Merkel is attempting to play down the situation as expected, but it can be said that the UK exit vote is not going to do her political campaigning in the EU any good at all.

Many UK citizens who voted to leave the EU based their decisions on a few facts:

–   They are not listened to by the UK (their own) government

–   They are never listened to by un elected hierarchy at the EU – Commissioners and others


We sent a letter to the EU Enlargement Commissioner (Hahn) regarding Serbian strays and other animal welfare issues for future new EU member states. This is what we got back:

The bankers at the city of London have been responsible for the 2008 crash which put the country into recession.  The bankers were bailed out to whatever they needed by the government; the man on the street was not.  So now the man on the street is getting his revenge – at both the UK government, The EU politicians and the London City bankers.

And the common man of the UK has won – with major resignations in government and the city bankers going into total mayhem.

In the UK today we have a new ‘Independence Day’ – freedom from the useless regulations of the EU and its non elected importants.  Why worry EU, soon you will have Serbia to calm all your concerns.


The Human Liberation from the EU has started!

The German Chancellor is outraged.
Who would have thought?
The loss of her strongest partner is reality.
And when all this was not bad enough, Cameron, her faithful servant, announces his resignation.

The dirty German media already starts the day with catastrophe reports: the Dax falls by ten percent off! The market is about to crash!
As if the average citizen would have made a gain in the DAX ever make a profit.

The Netherlands sign indirectly as the next exit candidate and Norway also looks not good.
Merkel made a statement, calling the 27 EU Member States “to analyze and evaluate the situation with calm and reason”.

The number 27 is only on paper, because the three mighty already met.
“The EU is strong enough” ends the Chancellor her favorite “1001 – Nights” tales for useful idiots.

We, who fight for the rights of animals, tried to help EU.
We have given her time, we have shown tolerance and understanding, when and where the lengthy processes have demanded it.
We have been waiting for a response years, we have given EU time.
We got in response indifference, ignorance, contempt.

Certainly are thousands of people who voted for the Brexit, the same people who signed for the 8hours campaign.
They feel betrayed, cheated and exploited by the EU.

The EU has understood after the Brexit that we have lost confidence in it.
And it has done everything that this confidence finally disappears.
Our struggle for exploited, suffering, mistreated animals has been ignored and betrayed.
The suffering of animals, especially the “livestock”, proves in transports, in slaughterhouses, on farms, that the EU has no right to exist.
It is the Hangman of the animals.

Brexit has been just the beginning.
There will be others as well, and they come soon!
The time of useful idiots is over.
