The Demolition of Western Civilisation

The Demolition of Western Civilisation

Please forgive me that I don’t talk about the flu called “Corona”. I truly believe it is a deception and will remembered as the attempt to destroy the private economy as well as the capitalistic system.

Ever Closer Union?

Ever Closer Union?

Brexit, from the citizen’s perspective, has become a disgrace. Although British politics have always been rather frank about engineering things to go a certain way, with snap referendums and impromptu votes peppering the litany, Brexit has become an albatross around the nation’s neck, states Oliver Taylor.

Plebiscites and Subversion?

Plebiscites and Subversion?

If there’s a continent that epitomises repeat referenda, it has to be Europe. Indeed, history seems to repeat itself often across Europe, and the advent of the European Union has spurred many such second-guesses of the initial public sentiment. More than that, this phenomenon has a history, as European nations repeatedly went back to the voting booth in order to cement public opinion over the last few centuries, thinks Shannon Berkley.

Tariffs and Trade Wars

Tariffs and Trade Wars

It’s official: the planet’s two biggest economies are currently involved in a trade war. After U.S. president Donald Trump imposed a punitive 25 percent tariff on Chinese goods worth $50 billion, China's commerce ministry issued a statement of retaliation, states Rachel Smith.

Deutsche Bank's Precarious Dilemma

Deutsche Bank's Precarious Dilemma

George Soros surprised many by making a €100 million bet that Deutsche bank would collapse following the Brexit vote, and some believe that the collapse of the 147 year old bank is not a matter of 'if', but 'when'. Many experts postulate that the Brexit ‘Leave’ vote was the final nail in the coffin, writes Thomas Hughes.

Brown's Bottom

Brown's Bottom

The now-infamous sale of the UK’s gold reserves under then-Chancellor of the Exchequer Gordon Brown, who went on to become British Prime Minister, happened between 1999 and 2002. The gold price was then at its lowest in twenty years, after a sustained bear market. Brown managed to justify and oversee the sale of around half of the UK’s gold reserves, approximately $3.25 billion, which constituted about a quarter of the country’s foreign currency net reserves, reports Oliver Taylor.

The Future of the Petrodollar

The Future of the Petrodollar

China’s recent launch of yuan-denominated oil futures on the Shanghai International Energy Exchange is much more than business as usual. Indeed, the move is a focus point for a growing tendency among nations to buck the dominance of the petrodollar, reports Oliver Taylor.

BBC defends £2mn EU handout

BBC defends £2mn EU handout

Critics of the British Broadcasting Corporation have said that financial contributions from the EU could unbalance its reporting of next year’s expected referendum on whether the UK should remain a part of the European Union.

The War on Cash

The War on Cash

We have become accustomed to the idea of cash, the feel of cash between our fingers, the action of counting through the bills and sending them on yet another voyage, traveling between the countless checkpoints of its many owners' hands in exchange for goods, services, information, loyalty, and more reports Thomas Hughes.

The Autocratic Governance of Europe

The Autocratic Governance of Europe

Perhaps one of the most commonly deployed public relations tactics of the European Union is the strategy of making itself appear to be reasonable and progressive, despite the fact that its actions speak otherwise, writes Thomas Hughes.

The New British Premiership

The New British Premiership

Officially taking office on July 24, 2019, few UK premiers have faced what Boris Johnson will face. With Brexit looming and mutating from a national bent to a political party, Johnson will need extreme tact and political manoeuvring to serve a popular term.

The Rise of the PetroYuan

The Rise of the PetroYuan

Since the agreement was struck between the United States of America and Saudi Arabia in the 1970s, the U.S. have enjoyed its unchallenged status as the world’s financial hegemony, states Oliver Taylor.

The United States of Europe

The United States of Europe

It is not fiction, nor speculation. As awkward as the “United States of Europe” may sound, or as Orwellian as the “European superstate” brand may seem, the concept of the European federation is more than just a fantasy - it is a plan that is rooted within the reality of the current European Union system, states Thomas Hughes.

Revisiting the Maastricht Treaty

Revisiting the Maastricht Treaty

The 1992 Maastricht Treaty is more correctly known as the Treaty on European Union (TEU) and together with the Rome Treaty - the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) - forms the EU’s constitutional basis. Now years down the line, it can be easier to see where earlier predictions tally with realities in the European Union. A hotly divisive topic, amalgamation of the European nations was nonetheless relatively quietly manifested, states Oliver Taylor.
