Independent EU Mediation Needed to Solve Incidents Like Kerch Strait Clash - MEP

Situations like the incident with the detention of Ukrainian naval vessels in the Kerch Strait could be solved with the help of independent European mediation, but the policies of EU member states lack common interests to act as one, Mario Borghezio, a member of the EP's Europe of Nations and Freedom Group, told Sputnik.

'A truly independent and authoritative European mediation would be very important in situations like this, but to date, there is no real common European Union foreign policy, based on values and interests that are truly shared by all member states. It is a shame', Borghezio said.

State Dept Says Kerch Incident Should Remind EU Why Nord Stream 2 'a Bad Idea'

The recent conflict between Russia and Ukraine in the Kerch Strait should serve as a reminder to European allies of the United States why the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline project is a "bad idea," a senior State Department official told reporters in a press briefing on Tuesday.

"I would say the Kerch incident is a reminder that the less infrastructure you have, the less gas infrastructure you have bypassing Ukraine because of Nord Stream 2, the weaker the deterrent – deterrence is to Russian acts of military aggression," the official said in Brussels.

EU to offer to ‘extend Article 50’

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the EU will offer to extend Article 50 beyond March next year if Theresa May loses the Parliamentary vote on the Withdrawal Agreement.

May is due to travel to Brussels on December 13th, two days after the Parliamentary vote on the 11th. The report quotes ‘EU Sources’ saying EU leaders “would be open to the idea of extending the Article 50 process if it meant avoiding a no-deal Brexit.”

EU ON BRINK: Germany unleashes Brexit burden WARNING as migration row erupts

EU ambassadors held long talks over the bloc’s subsequent seven-year price range because it appears to prop-up the in poor health Union within the wake of the United Kingdom’s departure. However issues became nerve-racking when German Ambassador Michael Clauss reminded his fellow EU opposite numbers Germany was once ready to dig deep to fund the Brexit shortfall however demanded member states must be ready to step as much as the plate over the migration factor. Mr Clauss advised the EU Council Germany’s price range contributions may just upward push to about one-quarter of the entire EU price range following Britain’s go out.

In a Letter To The EU, European Film Companies and Sports Leagues Disavow Article 13, Say It Will Make Big Tech Stronger

A coalition of some of Europe’s largest film companies and sports leagues have published an open letter to the European Union officials negotiating the final stage of the new Copyright Directive; in their letter, the companies condemn “Article 13,” the rule requiring all but the smallest online platforms to censor their users’ videos, text-messages, photos and audio if they appear to match anything in a crowdsourced copyrighted works database...

Europe unveils plan to reduce dollar hegemony in global trade

The European Commission on Wednesday unveiled its roadmap on expanding the euro’s global role, RBC writes. Brussels seeks to make the European currency more attractive in international accounts and in the global financial system, expand the use of the single currency on the oil and gas markets and in strategic industries. The program documents do not directly talk about plans to break the dollar’s global hegemony, but this is implied, the paper says. The European economy is compared to the US in scale, but the euro still takes a back seat. The Eurozone’s annual GDP per capita purchasing power parity in 2017 stood at $14.9 trillion, while that figure in the US was $19.4 trillion, according to the World Bank, but the dollar plays a more significant role. Meanwhile, Trump’s eccentric policy, including import duties levied on European goods and unilateral sanctions against EU trading partners, forces Europe to think about its own economic sovereignty.

France's Yellow Vest movement strikes a victory for working people across the EU

The French government’s decision to suspend the proposed levy on fuel was a victory for the French people, whose tradition of fighting and struggling for the right to a quality of life consistent with human dignity is centuries old.

In forcing Macron – whose disregard for those at the sharp end of the neoliberal god he worships has been inordinate – to back down, the Yellow Vest movement has rendered working people throughout the EU a great and significant service, reminding them that passivity in the face of injustice only succeeds in inviting more injustice.

Macron’s initial ‘let them eat cake’ refusal to countenance backing down (before, that is, he did back down), proclaiming with the bombast of the mouse to the cat that “People complaining about rising fuel prices are the same ones who complain about pollution and how their children suffer,” will follow him all the way to his resignation or the next French presidential election, whichever comes first.

Nato accuses Russia of breaking nuclear missile treaty

Western military alliance Nato has formally accused Russia of breaching the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, which banned land-based nuclear missiles in Europe.

Following a meeting, Nato foreign ministers issued a statement supporting US accusations of Russian violations.

The US has threatened to withdraw from the treaty because of Russian actions.

Russia denied being in breach of the INF deal, saying it "strictly abides" by its conditions.

The deal banned ground-launched medium-range missiles with a range of 500-5,500km (310-3,400 miles).

Ukraine, NATO discuss ban on Russia entering ports of ‘civilized countries’

During NATO Foreign Ministers’ Session, Ukraine proposed to ban Russian vessels from entering other countries’ ports, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavel Klimkin stated on Tuesday during a press briefing in Brussels on the outcomes of the meeting of the North Atlantic Council with Georgian and Ukrainian foreign ministers.

"We have also discussed the need to put an end to the Nord Stream 2, and that it would be the most suitable sanction for Russia. Also, we talked about the possibility of banning Russian vessels from civilized countries’ ports," the Ukrainian top diplomat stated.

Klimkin added that this initiative remains under discussion. "How this discussion will proceed depends on our future talks," the minister said.

US Ambassador Calls Poland ‘Defense Bastion’ Against Russia

The US ambassador to Poland, Georgette Mosbacher, thinks the country plays a key role in the global strategy of US President Donald Trump, she said in an interview with the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita.

“There is no doubt that Russia will not give up provocations, which means that Poland must remain the basis of stability in the region,” Mosbacher told the newspaper. “Poland is a kind of bastion in that region that defends it against Russian aggression.

She added that Poland plays a key role for US security. The strengthening of Western Europe generally influences American security, according to the ambassador.

The non-binding accord was approved in July. The United States backed out last year. EU countries including Hungary, Austria, and Poland have pulled out or expressed reservations.

Legal Advice on Brexit Deal Reveals the 'Unthinkable,' Leaving MPs Furious

No wonder the UK government tried to hide the Legal Advice on the withdrawal agreement provisions, said the Deputy Leader of the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) as details on the realities of the backstop have been made available to the parliamentarians.

Theresa May's government suffered an impressive defeat at the House of Commons on Tuesday, when the MPs voted it was in contempt of the Parliament. The government ministers were ordered to publish the full legal advice by Attorney General Geoffrey Cox on Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit withdrawal deal.

The Brexit legal advice revealed "central weaknesses in the Government's deal" and it is "unthinkable the Government tried to keep this information from Parliament," Shadow Brexit Secretary Sir Keir Starmer said upon the partial release of the document.

Denmark Mulls Sending Criminal Foreigners to Prison Abroad in 'Important Signal'

Not content with designating a uninhabited island to host migrants pending deportation, Denmark is mulling over building special prisons abroad. Lithuania is one of the East European nations that Denmark is currently negotiating with in order to place criminal migrants sentenced to expulsion.

According to Denmark's new policy, criminal foreigners sentenced to expulsion should be imprisoned abroad, Danish Radio reported, citing negotiations that are underway to put this plan into action.

"As soon as possible and by the end of 2019 at the latest, an agreement with a partner country to establish Danish prisons abroad, so criminals sentenced to expulsion will serve their sentences abroad rather than encumber the Danish prison service and Danish society", the Danish draft budget said.

In this shocking new documentary featuring EU insiders and commentators, independent author Phillip Day covers the history and goals of the European Union, as well as the disturbing, irrevocable implications this new government has for every British citizen.

US tries to stop Ireland banning imports from Israel’s settlements

A prominent US politician has lobbied Irish lawmakers to reject a proposed ban on imports from Israel’s illegal settlements.

Peter King, a member of Congress for New York, is among those who have opposed a bill being debated in Dublin.

Although the bill – aimed at forbidding goods from Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank – seeks to uphold international law, King has depicted it as subversive.

King has tried to convince Fianna Fáil, one of Ireland’s largest parties, to withdraw its support for the proposed ban.

DAILY MAIL COMMENT: Britain will never forgive a Brexit betrayal from vain and arrogant MPs that would shatter the integrity of our democracy

In a febrile, fractious Commons yesterday, the Government suffered three defeats in quick succession, each more crushing than the last.

The first two – relating to publication of the full legal advice surrounding the withdrawal agreement – were largely procedural. More embarrassing than truly disastrous.

But the third, in the form of an amendment by arch Tory rebel Dominic Grieve, could have the effect of giving Parliament, rather than the Government, total supremacy in shaping Brexit.

In principle, this may sound admirably democratic. But in a hung Parliament, where the majority of MPs are in conflict with the will of the people and want Britain to remain in the EU, it is a recipe for chaos and betrayal.

True, this vote makes the chances of crashing out with no deal vanishingly small. But it also means that Brexit may never happen at all.

The Real Significance Of The French Tax Revolt

At some point, it is too much. Just as the citizens suffering under Soviet rule finally said no more, the people suffering under social-democratic rule might someday do the same. Observers have waited decades to see reforms that might forestall such a thing. Reforms haven’t happened. Now the people are in the streets, setting fires and protesting the police. -- And it’s not just France. It’s spreading to Belgium and the Netherlands – the building of a European Spring. -- What we see in Paris today might be the end of social democracy as we know it. What comes in its place is what the battle of ideas today is really about.

US Secretary of State Pompeo Gives Speech at NATO Summit in Brussels

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is holding a press conference in Brussels during a summit of foreign ministers of NATO member states.

Earlier in the day, Pompeo addressed US foreign policy, stating that Washington is trying to establish a liberal world order based on democracy.

"We are rallying the noble nations of the world to build a new liberal order that prevents war and achieves greater prosperity for all", he noted.

The diplomat announced that the US would suspend its obligations under the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty.

"The United States today declares it has found Russia in material breach of the treaty and will suspend our obligations as a remedy effective in 60 days unless Russia returns to full and verifiable compliance," Pompeo said.

In a major victory for the continuity remain campaign, the European Court of Justice’s Advocate General Manual Campos Sánchez-Bordona has announced that the UK can unilaterally withdraw its Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty notification, although domestically this would require a Parliamentary vote and a co-operative executive. The ECJ is not bound to accept the opinion of the Advocate General, but it almost always does…

Remoaning MPs, MSPs, and MEPs have been arguing for a unilateral mechanism to remain in the EU and it looks like the ECJ will grant them their wish. Yet another unholy alliance of domestic and foreign interests working to reverse the 2016 result…

'Migrating Here Is No Human Right' - Swedish MEP Slams UN Pact

While Sweden Democrat Kristina Winberg warned of 'millions of Africans' trying to enter Europe illegally, her compatriots gathered in Stockholm to voice their discontent regarding a major upcoming intergovernmental UN pact that Sweden intends to be part of.

Right-wing MEP and Sweden Democrat Christina Winberg has warned that the UN document called the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration (GCM), scheduled to be signed in Morocco on December 11, is the first step towards "turning migration into a human right".

In her opinion piece, published by the tabloid daily Aftonbladet, Winberg stressed that the GCM makes no distinction between refugees and migrants, or legal vs. illegal migration.

UKRAINE URGES NATO TO SEND WARSHIPS TO CONFRONT RUSSIA

Still bound and determined that the maritime incident last weekend in the Sea of Azov portends a full-scale war with Russia, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko called on all NATO nations and other allied states to start relocating warships en masse to the sea to “assist Ukraine” in a conflict.

"We cannot accept this aggressive policy of Russia. First it was Crimea, then eastern Ukraine, now he wants the Sea of Azov. Germany, too, has to ask itself: What will Putin do next if we do not stop him?"

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Poroshenko does a magnificent job of playing the crazed dictator, turning events around 180 degrees, so that the world can be brought around to see things his way.

Poroshenko's major problem right now, is that he cannot get re-elected next March, without a magnificent distraction, to make him appear to be on the keening edge of actually "winning" something, like a conflict with Russia.

So, what does he do, at the behest of NATO and the US?!?

He created an "incident" in the Sea of Azov, which, under maritime law, is actually under Russia control. His commanders never told the Russians that they were going to do this, hence they got stopped, and their staff got arrested.

And as for Crimea, and I hate having to say this perpetually, because in the wonderful words of Ron White, "You can't fix stupid", Russia never annexed Crimea.

Let's set the way-back machine (which is nearly IMPLODING, with the force of having to use it over and over again) to 2014.

The duly elected Ukrainian President, Yanukovich , was well and truly thrown under the proverbial bus, as he was considered as "too Russian Centric" to meet the needs of the US/NATO/WORLD BANK/ crowd.

So Western elements got rid of Yanukovich, and "Installed" Petro Poroshenkco as the Western-centric President, with an election more crooked than is a dog's hind leg.

Because this guy kept screaming about an "imminent Russian invasion" for the first four years of his presidency, I seriously doubt that NATO is going to run "pass interference" for him in the Azov Sea.

Poroshenko has been a complete, nearly laughable embarrassment to all the Western influencers which put him into power, and now are experiencing a most painful and extreme case of "Buyer's Remorse" because of it.

Oh, and about Crimea getting "annexed by Russia"?!?

That never happened.

After the putsch in Kiev, the Crimean officials understood that there was no more representative government there, they did two things: first, post putsch, they asked the Crimean people if they wanted to stay with Ukraine, or petition the Russian Federation to join it. Overwhelmingly, the Crimean people voted to leave Ukraine, and petition the Russian Federation for membership. and the Russian Federation agreed.

Even President Obama, on a television interview, confessed that the Government of the United States of America, played a role in getting Yanukovich out. President Obama admits that the US government brokered a deal in support of regime change in Kiev.

So, Petro Poroshenko, you can take your "impending war" with Russia to a dark place the sun cannot reach; this is merely lies, on top of lies, and you know it, as does Russia.

Kiev Saves No One, Russia Protects Europe From Ukraine’s Barbarism – Maria Zakharova

Russia, is protecting Europe from the barbarism and militarism from Ukraine that are hanging over the whole continent, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, commenting on the statements of President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko that Russia intends to seize Berdyansk and Mariupol.

“Former German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel gave an absolutely clear description of what is happening in Ukraine in an interview with the German TV channel N-TV: “I think that in no case should we allow Ukraine to draw us into the war. Ukraine tried to do it.” And after Poroshenko declared that “Russia allegedly intends to seize Mariupol and Berdyansk,” we can confidently say, paraphrasing his own saying: “it is Russia that protects Europe from “barbarism, tyranny, terrorism, aggression, militarism that have hung over our entire continent”, wrote Zakharova on her Facebook page.

Breakthrough for Anti-Mass Migration VOX Party in Spanish Regional Election

Theresa May Brexit advisor Olly Robbins admitted deal was ‘a BAD OUTCOME’ in secret letter

Mr Robbins, the Prime Minister’s Europe advisor, said the Brexit deal’s backstop proposal didn’t guarantee security cooperation with the EU. He claimed it would require some regulatory controls between Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK. The revelation of the warning, details of which were published in The Telegraph, will increase pressure on the Prime Minister to publish the Attorney General’s full legal advise on the deal.

Currently the Prime Minister is refusing to release the text in full but a later today there will be a cross-party attempt in Parliament to force publication.

In his letter to the Prime Minister, dated October 19, Mr Robbins warned: “We should not forget that the backstop is, even with a UK-EU customs union, a bad outcome.”

EU countries mass BOYCOTT of UN meeting making MIGRATION a HUMAN RIGHT

A NEW United Nations initiative to class migration as a HUMAN RIGHT is being boycotted by European Union (EU) member states, including Italy, France and Austria, who have all rejected the proposals in favour of tougher border controls.

This week’s unveiling of UN proposals for universal migrant rights is being treated with such suspicion that only Britain, Holland and Denmark have signed up unreservedly. The so-called UN Global Compact for Migration aims to set out universal rights and conditions for migrants – but one Member of the European Parliament has pointed out that of adopted then even the criticising of the very concept of migration would be considered a hate crime.

Israel's Gas Pipeline to Europe Too Punny and Too Expensive to Really Worry Gazprom

The planned capacity is much smaller than what Russia provides, besides, the demand in Europe is rising anyway. It’s being billed as a counter to both Arab and Russian power but that’s not really true. This will supposedly deliver 20 bcm annually to Cyprus, Greece and Italy and come at a significant cost because of the challenge of it. But the first train will be 10 bcm according to IGI Poseiden’s website, the company building the pipeline. 10 bcm is similar in size to the Southern Gas Corridor bringing gas in from Azerbaijan. The agreement has been some two years in the works, with the four countries’ energy czars signing a memorandum of understanding regarding the pipeline in December 2017. It is considered a technically difficult project to complete not only because of the depth of the undersea route, but also because it will have to pass through a volcanic area in the ocean bottom between Cyprus and Greece. No discussion of cost was in the announcement.

L'Antidiplomatico Interview: Andre Vltchek interviewed by Alessandro Bianchi

Italy is part of both EU and NATO. As I am writing in my new essay, it is a nonsense to believe that "Europeans are brainwashed; that they do not know what the West is doing all over the world". They know, or they at least suspect - most of them. But they pretend that they don't know. In Europe, there is a shadowy deal between the government, corporations and the people. People want more benefits, and they do not care that the benefits come from plundering the world. If they get their benefits, they shut up. If they think they are getting too little, they protest, like recently in Paris. But do they care if tens of millions of 'un-people' die for those benefits? Of course not! The same when it comes to Russia, China or Iran. Europeans in general and Italians in particular, know that there is some sort of vicious propaganda against those countries that refuse to yield to the Western diktat. But they will do nothing to stop it.

The draft was submitted to the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs by Sandra Kalniete, a lawmaker from Latvia. The document will be discussed by the committee on Thursday.

'This is the start of a revolution': Paris rioters steal police assault rifle, torch dozens of cars and vow to 'stay in the streets until Christmas' as fuel protests continue into the night and spread across France - and even to Holland

The centre of Paris was on lockdown tonight after masked protesters stole an assault rifle from police, clashed with riot squads and set fire to cars and Christmas trees on the Champs-Elysees in furious demonstrations against the French government.

Protesters said today's actions were 'the start of a revolution' that would eclipse the mass strikes and occupation of universities and factories in1968 when the country was on the cusp of civil war.

Fires and clouds of tear gas covered the French capital from early morning until late in the evening, in some of the worst violence ever seen in the French capital as more than 5,000 demonstrators brought chaos to Paris for the second week running.

Swedish Nurses Enroll in Self-Defence Classes After Rise in Violence

Swedish nurses who work in the emergency room of a hospital in Kalmar are taking self-defence classes due to a rise in violent incidents from patients.
The hospital has also taken active measures to increase the number of security guards stationed at the emergency room to better deal with situations before they escalate into violence, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

Andrea Berg, a nurse in the Kalmar hospital ER, is behind the initiative saying that she had even seen colleagues beaten by patients who she described as stressed due to factors including long wait times. Berg added that she had also seen a rise in violence outside of work saying, “As a woman, you are much more exposed.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I would like to hope that other European countries are learning how deadly unfettered immigration is, and rather than criminalize any comments on what it has caused, start to deal with these crises we are seeking, intelligently and responsibly.

Otherwise, Europe... will be only a fleeting memory, in contrast to the horrific vile actions of those who would destroy the people who welcomed them into their country, and frequently into their homes.

Yes, the EU’s New #CopyrightDirective is All About Filters

By Cory Doctorow

When the EU started planning its new Copyright Directive (the “Copyright in the Digital Single Market Directive”), a group of powerful entertainment industry lobbyists pushed a terrible idea: a mandate that all online platforms would have to create crowdsourced databases of “copyrighted materials” and then block users from posting anything that matched the contents of those databases.

At the time, we, along with academics and technologists explained why this would undermine the Internet, even as it would prove unworkable. The filters would be incredibly expensive to create, would erroneously block whole libraries worth of legitimate materials, allow libraries more worth of infringing materials to slip through, and would not be capable of sorting out “fair dealing” uses of copyrighted works from infringing ones...

Merkel Ally Suggests Blockading Russian Ships From All EU And US Ports

A close senior political ally of German Chancellor Angela Merkel told Reuters on Friday that the European Union and the United States should consider banning all Russian ships that originate from the Sea of Avoz from entering EU and US ports until last Sunday's Kerch Strait crisis is resolved.

German conservative Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer, who is said to be most likely to succeed Merkel as leader of the Christian Democratic Union (CDU) party, told Reuters:

One answer might be, for example, to stop Russian ships coming from the region - from the Sea of ??Azov - from entering European or U.S. ports until this situation with Ukraine is resolved.

And turning her attention to US sanctions targeting Russia and Germany's less than eager willingness to go along, Reuters reports further:

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Forgive me, but has Kram-Karrenbauer gone absolutely stark raving, gepolitically insane?!?

Blockades are considered an act of war, just in case her European history is a little fuzzy, which it appears to be.

Russia was precisely within its rights to capture and hold the invading Ukrainian boats, courtesy of maritime law. But that this woman is even THINKING about a blockade, makes me very concerned about her true mental health.

Poroshenko has been screaming about a potential "Russian Invasion" ever since he took office in 2014.

First: as from March 2020, the United States will begin to deploy in Italy, Germany, Belgium, and Holland (where B-61 nuclear bombs are already based), and probably also in other European countries, the first nuclear bomb with precision guidance in their arsenal, the B61-12. Its function is primarily anti-Russian. This new bomb is designed with penetrating capacity, enabling it to explode underground in order to destroy the central command bunkers with its first strike. How would the United States react if Russia deployed nuclear bombs in Mexico, right next to their territory? Since Italy and the other countries, violating the non-proliferation Treaty, are allowing the USA to use its bases, as well as its pilots and planes, for the deployment of nuclear weapons, Europe will be exposed to a greater risk as the first line of the growing confrontation with Russia.

A Savage ‘War To End All Wars,’ and a Failed Peace

Europe lost an entire generation, killed, maimed or forever psychologically broken by the war. Many Europeans lost faith in the snake oil of nationalism and turned away from the standard frameworks of monarchy or liberal democracy. Some found solace in socialism, whereas others doubled down on ultranationalism in the form of fascist leaders.

Despite 9 million battle deaths – a number unfathomable when the war began – WWI solved little and sowed the seeds for the European cataclysm of 1939-45. It is an uncomfortable truth, especially for the United States, a nation that tends to see itself as being at the center of the world; the US played mostly a late, and bit, part in the drama across the Atlantic.

Police Disperse 'Yellow Vests' Protest in Brussels With Tear Gas, Water Cannons

The demonstrators in Belgium, dressed in the yellow jackets that have become a symbol of the protests in France, have gathered close to the district where the Belgian government and parliament are based.

The police have dispersed the riots that broke out in Belgium on Friday, using water cannons and tear gas.

Earlier in the day, reports stated that the groups of "yellow jacket" demonstrators, protesting against high taxes and living costs, have already disrupted traffic in Brussels.

"In connection with the rally of ‘yellow vests,’ the Rue de la Loi street (the small ring), tunnels Loi (toward the city centre) and Cinquantenaire (toward the centre) are closed to traffic," the police of central Brussels said.

EU ‘to extend sanctions’ against Russia in December

Tusk will chair a summit of EU leaders on December 13-14, which is due to roll over the bloc’s measures against Russia’s defense, energy and banking sectors for another year over “Moscow’s role” in Ukraine.

Siding with fascism: Western ideologues pose greater threat to the West's security than ISIS

A Western ideologue unravelling is no pretty sight. It’s like watching a lobster boiling in a pot. And like that lobster he or she eventually pops.

‘Popping’ recently over Russia have been key figures of the Western geopolitical and ideological firmament – people for whom the world is made of a Western bloc of nations divinely ordained to command, and the rest of the world condemned to obey.

A prime example of what I mean concerns the Atlantic Council in Washington, one of the more notorious of an ever expanding network of neocon think tanks in our world, within whose Washington offices you will find gathered cranks of inordinate dimension.

For such people Russia is not a country of 146 million people whose contribution to the world in the fields of art, science, culture and so on has been profound throughout its history and remains so today, but instead is a cancer that needs to be removed – preferably by force.

'It is game, set and match to you': Farage congratulates Barnier on 'beating' Britain in Brexit talks at a half-empty European Parliament as the EU insists NO other deal is available

Nigel Farage today congratulated his arch nemesis Michel Barnier on beating the UK in the Brexit talks - declaring Brussels had won 'game, set and match'.

But he warned the deal is so loathed in Britain that it does not stand a chance of getting backed by MPs and the UK could be set to crash out without a deal at all.

It came after Mr Barnier said the agreement thrashed out with Theresa May is the only deal on the table.

Speaking in a half empty chamber in the European Parliament for a standard plenary session this morning, Mr Farage it is a 'good deal' for the EU but hated in Britain.

The ex Ukip leader said: 'It is a good deal for the European Union. For the UK, I think it is probably the worst deal in history.'

He added: 'Mr Barnier, I have to say, I wish you were on our side really, because it is game, set and match to you.'

Lashing the PM's divorce deal, he said it 'shattered any illusion' that Britain will become an independent country after March next year.
