Kommentar Konflikt in Nordirland: Böses Omen #Nordirland #LyraMcKee #Brexit #Europa #Politik #Schwerpunkt


 
This, I think, is a must see for everyone concerned about #Brexit, modern #politics, #democracy and/or the #EU.

Carole Cadwalladr is a journalist and she has investigated the influence of facebook on the Brexit referendum.

She went back to her hometown, because the majority there voted to leave the EU, despite the facts that there are almost no immigrants and they have massively benefited from the EU because it has made massive investments in the region. "In the light of their benefits, why on earth have they voted to leave?" is the question she is asking. She is trying to find what it is that has been told to th... show more

In the shadow of Brexit, Britain has become one front in a pan-continental battle for the soul of the European project

Elections to the European parliament can be awkward for admirers of the EU. A ballot in every member state is the most directly democratic feature of the union’s institutional architecture and such a poll should, in theory, bind millions of people in a sense of collective political enterprise.

In practice, it rarely feels that way. Awareness of the parliament’s functions is thin. Turnout is low. Parties tend to reserve their best candidates for domestic races. An election of apparently minor consequence invites protest voting, which yield MEPs who have no interest in doing the job properly. #Europeanelections #Brexit #UKnews #EuropeanUnion #Foreignpolicy #Politics #Hungary #Europe #ViktorOrbán #Thefarright


 
Tom Watson is right. We need another #brexit referendum because things have changed since 2016. A lot.

Lesetipp: Ein Interview mit Slavoj Zizek. Wir kriegen leider nicht das Interview selbst sondern nur eine Zusammenfassung, aber die beinhaltet schon eine Menge weiterbringende Gedanken. Hier ist mein Favorit:
“Why should the Left automatically accept this idea that patriotism is bad? Patriotism means for me that you have great trust in the greatness of your nation, for example what Angela Merkel did: accepting one million refugees, this is true patriotism: trusting in the greatness, tolerance, productivity of Germany.”

On this he goes for checkmate: “My point is to label anti-immigrant populists as non-patriotic. They don’t trust their own nation. How can you believe like Trump in American greatness, if when a couple of thousand refugees are approaching your border you proclaim a state of emergency?”
Das ist doch mal ein schöner Spin!

I am "suffering" from Trump fatigue and Brexit fatigue.
And I like it.
No more news, please. I will wait until the Americans and the English have figured out how to go on with their position in the world.
I'm so tired of it all.

In the mean time, the rest of us, in the EU, China, Russia, Brazil, Canada, Japan and India, are minding our own business. Let's get on with it, let's fix our own problems, let's see what new alliances we can forge for the future.
