‘Brexit is CATASTROPHIC!’ Juncker finally admits British ‘never felt comfortable in EU’

Reproduced from


JEAN-CLAUDE JUNCKER made another plea to the British people to reconsider leaving the European Union after a chorus of fresh calls for a second Brexit referendum.

The President of the European Commission said the European Union’s hands were “outstretched” to welcome Britain back into the bloc. 

Speaking in European Parliament, he said: “When it comes to Brexit I am sure that there will be no winners from this situation.

“This is a lose-lose situation, it’s a lose-lose situation both for the British and for the members of the European Union.

“I continue to feel that the exit of Great Britain is a catastrophe. 

“It is a defeat that we all have to deal with the consequences of but the causes of the British decision run much deeper.

“As Mrs May has said the British have never felt entirely comfortable with the European Union so the guilt lies upon many shoulders. 

“Mr Tusk said that our hands remain outstretched.

“The British people, the British government may wish to find a different way out of the Brexit situation, we’re very much willing to deal with them. 

“We are not throwing the British out, we would like the British to stay and if they so wish they should be allowed to do so.”

Mr Juncker also addressed outrage by Brexiteer’s over the EU’s attempts to bring Britain back into the fold on Tuesday. 

He said: “I did note that in London, there was a rather irritated response to this proposal.

“Note that even if the British leave, according to Article 50, then Article 94 would allow them to exit again.

“I would be happy to facilitate that so I certainly wouldn’t want to push anyone into a corner.” 


SAV Comment – No Thanks – Penny Dropping with you now is it ? – should have listened to the people of the UK and the rest of the EU years ago.  Here is just  one reason why !





Pound euro exchange rate update:

Pound will ROCKET this year with Brexit clarity


Reproduced from


THE POUND is “very, very” undervalued and could make some major gains against the dollar this year as more clarity about Brexit emerges.

The pound could rocket in 2018 as Brexit uncertainty clears up, Peter Kinsella, senior FX and rates strategist at the Commonwealth Bank of Australia said. 

Speaking to CNBC about which currency would make the biggest gains against the dollar in 2018, he said: “It’s a toss up between sterling and the euro.

“I think sterling’s very undervalued, I’ve thought that for quite some time.

“The initial optics when we get to the beginning of Brexit negotiations in March will probably be poor for sterling.

“Because I think what you’ll find is the European Union negotiators as they said, slaughter a few unicorns, and I think that was the term they used.”

Kinsella said this might have a negative impact on the pound in the short term but that clarity around Brexit will push sterling up by the end of the year. 

He said: “I think short-term that will be poor for sterling but over the medium term, sterling is very very undervalued.

“If we get some kind of a trade deal I think that will be good news for sterling.”

In a note on Monday, ING FX strategist, Viraj Patel, who sees sterling above $1.50 this year, said: “Judging by GBP’s rally since late November, which has continued in the first few weeks of the new year, a reassessment of the Brexit political games looks to be underway.

“But we feel there is more upside to come – especially if a transition deal were to be signed, sealed and delivered in 1Q18.”

The pound rose 0.4 percent against the euro to 1.1289 at 12:57 in London. 

Sterling was little changed against the dollar at 1.3786 at 12:57 in London.

Sign: Ban Gruesome Festival Where Horses Are Gutted By Bulls for Entertainment

Every two weeks in the Mexican state of Yucatan, a gruesome festival known as Torneo de Lazo takes place, in which innocent horses are mauled by bulls. “Cowboys” ride the terrified horses around while bulls trained to attack charge at them and rip up their flesh with their horns. The bulls suffer too as the “cowboys” try to lasso them down.

Stop Barbaric Annual Slaughter of Pilot Whales


SAV comment – we were on the streets campaigning about this back in the 90’s.

Go to ‘About Us’    – then scroll down immediately below the photos of Joanne; there you will see the article ‘Superstore protestors seek end of slaughter’.  Below this is a photograph showing the reality of what this slaughter is about.  Please support.


Migrating pilot whales who are unfortunate enough to swim past the Faroe Islands are pushed to shore by fishermen, where they are then speared and slaughtered. Oftentimes their meat is left on the bloody shore to rot. Sign the petition to stop this barbaric whale slaughter.

Goldie the wolf; and her family of beautiful cubs have been sentenced to death.


Petition Link –


Goldie the wolf is a mother of four beautiful cubs. And she has been sentenced to death.

Urge the local council, the Stadtrat Goldenstedt, to allow Goldie and her family to live!

Goldie is an amazing and beautiful creature who has lived in the area near Goldenstedt, Germany for years. Two years ago, she met her partner after he traveled more than 400 km from an area near Poland to establish a family with her. Last year, they had four beautiful cubs and started a pack. But now Goldie and her family are in danger.

The city council of Goldenstedt has unanimously adopted a resolution to immediately kill the entire pack. Why? Because locals want to protect their cattle and can’t be bothered to simply make their fences and livestock pens wolf-resistant.

That’s not a good enough reason for the town to go on a killing rampage. These elegant animals deserve to live. Don’t let the Stadtrat Goldenstedt slaughter Goldie and her pack. Sign the petition now!

Thank you,

Take action: Oil and sea turtles do not mix


Help us protect sea turtles from the Trump administration’s short-sighted plan to expand offshore oil and gas drilling.

We still remember the horrible Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

  • 134 million gallons of oil spilled in the ocean.

  • As many as 320,000 sea turtles impacted including the critically endangered Kemp’s ridley sea turtle.

Click here to take 3 simple actions to oppose this drilling expansion and to protect sea turtles and other marine wildlife.


As you may know, the Trump Administration has recently proposed further opening federal waters to oil and gas drilling. An expansion of oil drilling in our oceans will be a severe blow to decades-long efforts to protect endangered and threatened sea turtles and other marine wildlife.

We have 60 days to comment on this disastrous proposal.

Please take action today and help us protect America’s sea turtles.

Thank you!

Turtle Island Restoration Network

PS – Your actions matter. Together we can fight for healthy oceans and the sea turtles. #ProtectSeaTurtles


UK- Take Action Against UK Supermarket Plastic

Hi there,

I’ve just signed a petition calling on UK supermarkets to go plastic-free, and it would mean a lot to me if you’d add your name too!

From turtles entangled in six pack rings to whales with stomachs full of plastic bags, the effects of plastic pollution can be devastating.

UK supermarket Iceland has just announced its own-brand packaging is going plastic-free.

By ditching plastic packaging, supermarkets have the power to lead the way in dramatically reducing the amount of single-use plastic produced.

Please join me in calling on UK supermarkets to ditch throwaway plastic packaging.

Thank you!
