Spain rescues 600 migrants at sea in day as flow from Morocco swells

Spain rescued over 600 migrants in 24 hours on Thursday as they attempted to cross from Morocco to Spain amid a surge in arrivals on what has become the fastest growing sea route to Europe, according to reports. The migrants were found in 15 vessels on Wednesday including a jet ski after sailing across the … Continue reading

There is an easier solution for Brexit…

  Since the ‘Leave’ campaign was victorious on June 23, there has been a lack of clarity regarding the solution for Brexit. While different ideas have been thrown about, nothing has been set in stone. Even recently elected Prime Minister Theresa May, who staunchly declared ‘Brexit means Brexit’, has not offered a solid direction for … Continue reading

The European Union does not promote peace and unity, and here’s why.

Many of those lauding the European Union do still manage to find fault with it. This can be from its treatment of Greece, to the crony corporatism that flourishes within its protection. Yet these profoundly detrimental attributes will be ignored by those who want to remain; instead, they will focus on heaping praise onto how … Continue reading

How ‘Brexit’ could collapse the entire European Union

The EU referendum could change more than Britain’s future; it could lead to the dismantling of the entire union.   A historic moment has arrived. Tomorrow, scores of voters across Britain will shuffle down to their nearest polling station to vote on the UK’s future within the European Union. It’s certainly come around quickly. Enmity towards the European project — something … Continue reading

How The European Union Betrays Left-Wing Values

The EU referendum draws tantalizingly closer. Support for both staying and leaving hangs very much in the balance.  One remarkable aspect of the debate is how people are becoming segregated, largely based on their political ideology. A key example is left-wing support for remaining. In fact, the two are disproportionately linked. A left-wing Eurosceptic is now … Continue reading

The left and the right in Europe are playing into the hands of Islamists

Perhaps one of the gravest threats to the stability of Europe today is radical Islam. From the terror attacks in London, Paris, Brussels and Madrid; to the Sharia courts established in large Muslim communities; epidemic abuses of young girls by grooming gangs; and radicalization among Muslim youths, the continent is facing a crisis. What makes the … Continue reading

How Recep Tayyip Erdogan is bullying Europe

  “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize” For long, Europe had stood as a bulwark against the Ottoman Empire — repelling invasion after invasion, in a drawn out series of conflicts that lasted centuries. The latter ultimately crumbled; meeting its demise in 1922. It was subdued at … Continue reading

The Far-Right Phenomenon arrives in Germany

  Many of us predicted that the refugee crisis would lead to unrest. Many of us knew there would be repercussions from it. Especially so in Germany. This is excluding practical considerations such as welfare, healthcare and housing. It ignores the stigma of “rapefugees”, which is largely over-exaggerated incidentally. Rather, it was inevitable that letting … Continue reading

If the Refugee Crisis isn’t managed appropriately, it could be the downfall of the EU

  The European Union ensures political unity across the continent. It enjoins the 28 member states to positively integrate with one another. Generation after generation of turmoil, hitting a climax during the first half of the twentieth century, eventually led the European nations to come together over trade relations and diplomacy, rather than focusing on their own … Continue reading

Is Marine Le Pen Finished? Has the Front National’s Momentum Sunk?

  The Front National started off tremendously. In the first round of the French local elections held over a week ago, the anti-EU Nationalist party bagged a historic victory, securing 28% of the vote and leading 6 out of the 13 contested regions. Leader Marine Le Pen took the party from the gutter of the political … Continue reading
