Finally, the Brits Get an Independence Day of Their Own!

The joy I feel today is indescribable. Not because England is our mother country but because that hideous abomination known as the European Union is finally starting to unravel. Plus the fact that despite the best efforts of the international banking elites and the professional bureaucracy to derail the people’s choice, the people are finally going to get their way.

Oh sure, I know that this Brexit is not as clean as Nigel Farage and the original Brexiteers would have wanted. Yes, I know that the devil is in the details and that this contains significant portions of Theresa May’s nonsensical bad faith stipulations, but one never gets 100% of what one wants. Not in the political sphere nor in the personal. That’s not the point. The point is this: the people of Great Britain (mostly England) voted almost four years ago to “Leave” the European Union. This was a major electoral upset. Moreover, it portended future globalist defeats, the most significant one being the surprise victory of Donald John Trump five months later.

In both cases, the elite never saw Brexit or Trump happening. Too bad, it ain’t my fault that they’re so hidebound and -dare I say it?–stupid. At this point, I hope that they continue to be as insular and incestuous as possible. Go on living in your East Coast/London/Portlandia/Hollywood Bubble; keep on looking down your noses at us Deplorables. No skin off my ass. We, the people, don’t care. They stopped listening to us decades ago. Now the tables have turned and we’ve stopped listening to them. (Hurts, don’t it?)

And that’s another major point: we’ve stopped caring what they think. Their echo chamber is discredited; their concerns are unimportant. Gone are the days of Walter Cronkite and Huntley and Brinkley: now when we turn on CNN or MSNBC we are treated to the sight of braying jackasses like Don Limon and Lawrence O’Donnell. Their denunciations of us no longer sting. If we do watch them, it’s only for comic relief.

But here’s the third point, and it’s equally crucial: the elites fought back —hard–and tried to derail the people’s will. In Britain, they elected Theresa May to slow-walk Brexit and bless her heart, she did a bang-up job doing so. Here in America, the elites went 24/7 coming up with faux scandal after faux scandal, throwing everything but the kitchen sink at the Trumpster. Why I remember Michael Avenatti being lionized as the next Bobby Kennedy; now, of course, he’s rotting in the same jail cell as Jeffrey Epstein. (Think about that for a moment.) At any rate, in neither case were the elites able to overcome the historical forces that Brexit and Trump represented. And that’s a good thing. A very good thing.

Of course, like all good narcissists, they will never give up. Think of how monomaniacal one has to be to believe oneself to be morally superior to tens of millions of ordinary people who (bless their little hearts), believe they have a right to their own opinions. Or votes. Since we’re talking about Old Blighty, let us consider Sir Patrick Stewart for example. In the most recent iteration of the Star Trek canon, he reprises his role as Capt Jean-Luc Picard, who has been retired from active duty for 14 years. Now he plays Picard as a bitter old man who is dissatisfied with the nativist, xenophobic turn that the United Federation of Planets has taken. (Seems like millions of Romulans have become refugees and the crusty old Picard is now channeling Nancy Pelosi.) In any event, Stewart has openly admitted that the new Star Trek: Picard television series is a rebuke to Trumpism and Brexit. Several times in fact; and in as contemptuous a manner as possible.

Well, he’s entitled to his opinions. But Stewart has gone farther than engage in honest debate. Like many in the Democrat Party here, he has called his countrymen rubes and has publicly heaped invective upon them, going the Full Hillary (who viewed millions of her countrymen as deplorables). His disdain for his country is so palpable that it causes me to worry for his sanity. After all, if he hates what England “has become” and can’t stomach the concerns of the majority, then why doesn’t he do the honorable thing and give up his citizenship? Or his knighthood? I mean, how oblivious, ignorant or stupid (or some combination thereof) do you have to be to not understand that a British knighthood is the singular product of an ancient, sovereign land, one with its own peculiar institutions and customs?

(For a brilliant, in-your-face, full-on gloat on the Remoaners, please read the following diatribe by John Delingpole:

The likes of Stewart and Sir Elton John (another British “knight” who hates Great Britain) want to have it both ways, to have the honors of their homeland bestowed upon them but to live as wealthy cosmopolitans, unconcerned with the concerns of the common people. Do they not understand that their honors were made possible by the innumerable sacrifices of millions of people who bled for their country over many generations? That those men did not fight at Crecy, Agincourt or Trafalgar for vague, nebulous concepts like “Europe” or “democracy”, but for a real people inhabiting a real island called Great Britain? And that maybe their descendants don’t want to see their beloved homeland overrun by people who have nothing in common with them? (Come to think of it, would Sir Winston Churchill, who wrote The River War, be happy to know that today, in his beloved country, the most popular boy’s name is Mohammed?)

Yeah, I’d rather take my cues from La Hurley than some crusty old fart who hates his country.

What it all boils down to is this: you can only push the people around for so long; eventually, the bill will come due. In the meantime, let all good patriotic nationalists hoist a tankard of ale today and say these words: “For Harry, England and St George!”


  1. George: ‘…let all good patriotic nationalists hoist a tankard of ale today and say these words: “For Harry, England and St George!” ‘
    No. Let’s not.
    The Scots have unfinished business.
    [Robrt Burns]
    Scots, wha hae wi’ Wallace bled,
    Scots, wham Bruce has aften led;
    Welcome to your gory bed,
             Or to victory!
    Now’s the day, and now’s the hour;
    See the front o’ battle lour;
    See approach proud Edward’s power—
             Chains and slavery!
    Wha will be a traitor knave?
    Wha can fill a coward’s grave!
    Wha sae base as be a slave?
             Let him turn and flee!
    Wha for Scotland’s king and law
    Freedom’s sword will strongly draw,
    Freeman stand, or freeman fa’,
             Let him follow me!
    By oppression’s woes and pains!
    By your sons in servile chains!
    We will drain our dearest veins,
             But they shall be free!
    Lay the proud usurpers low!
    Tyrants fall in every foe!
    Liberty’s in every blow!—
             Let us do or die!

      Who am I to argue with the Archbishop of Canterbury?

    • George Michalopulos says

      Brendan, I am not at all unsympathetic to the plight of the Scots –indeed I wish for their independence and the restoration of the Stewart dynasty. However, in the Brexit scheme of things, the majority of votes for Leave came from England, not Scotland, hence my decision to reward the British with an English toast as opposed to a Scottish one.

      I remain open however to the possibility of toasting the Scots at some future date (as well as the French and the Italians; the Greeks unfortunately will have to suffer under another foreign yoke until the scales fall from their eyes).

      • “…reward the British with an English toast as opposed to a Scottish one.”
        When HMQ ascended the throne, the Royal Mail covered the state with cast iron pillar boxes (post boxes) set nine feet into the ground bearing the logo EIIR (Elizabeth II Regina). When it was pointed out to the Palace that this logo was incorrect in Scotland as she was the first (not the second) to reign in Scotland under that name, the Scots were told they would just have to suck it up as the Scottish style did not matter.
        Shortly thereafter, numbers of these pillar boxes began liberating themselves from their concrete settings – propelled by dynamite. To cut a long story short, EIIR pillar boxes were only to be found in England, Wales and Northern Ireland;
        whereas those in Scotland now bore the more accurate Royal Cypher: ER.

        • George Michalopulos says

          Love it! Ya gotta hand it to the Scots!

        • Tim R. Mortiss says

          More Bobbie Burns:

          “The good old rule sufficeth them, the simple plan:
          Let him take, who has the power,
          And let him keep, who can.”

      • It must be said that were Scotland to vote for independence, it would not be to resurrect an anachronistic monarchy but to rejoin the European Union.

        I confess, having taken in the past several centuries of Western European history, I cannot quite ‘get’ the antipathy for the EU. An unprecedented decades long span of peace and economic prosperity, what a profound tragedy!

        • George Michalopulos says

          At what cost? Liberty? The intrusion of several million non-Europeans into that beautiful continent? Although the globalists believe in the sameness of all men, the fact remains that Europe will soon erupt into a horrendous racial war in which millions of non-Europeans will be exterminated.

          That however remains to be seen. If you think there was “peace” during the last 70 years, what do you call the bloodletting that was in the former Yugoslavia, or Cyprus? Northern Ireland and now Ukraine?

          • I must say, you seem to be making my point for me in that you bring up conflict examples from continental Europe from the past 50 years that didn’t involve a single active member state of the EU. The exception might be the Northern Ireland conflict, but that could be argued to be an intra-UK conflict not one between nations, and in any case a trivial affair in the broad scope of European history. Yugoslavia was a member of the Warsaw Pact. Greece hadn’t joined the EU at the time of the Cyprus invasion. Neither Russia or Ukraine are members of the EU.

            Speaking of the latter, it is a little grim that the godless secular nations of the EU seem to be at peace while two nominally Orthodox Christian countries are at war with each other. It wasn’t the dreaded US State Department that annexed the Crimea via military force and sent Russian troops into Eastern Ukraine.

            One can argue that in some areas Americans may have more liberties than EU citizens, but in others they have less. Having lived in both I do not think there is anything so simple as a liberty “winner”.

            I confess, I am not really following how you are categorizing Europeans versus non-Europeans, from your prophecies of ethnic cleansing it almost sounds like you view the quality of ‘Europeanness’ as being primarily racial in nature, but that can’t possibly be what you mean.

            • “it almost sounds like you view the quality of ‘Europeanness’ as being primarily racial in nature”

              Well, considering that all European people are white, and all white people are European, then yes, Europeanness is primarily racial. What else do all Europeans have in common? Language? Religion? Not since Pax Romana, and not even then, either.

              • Come now, claiming all European people are white is an ahistorical claim across the past couple millennia of European history. Using a relatively modern social construct like race to attempt to define ‘Europeanness’ leads to absurdities.

                • Gail Sheppard says

                  Universal Qualifier Upside-down A.

                • I won’t deny that non-white people have lived in Europe in varying times and places, but they’re not Europeans, merely guests. Europeans are those sons of Japheth who have put down roots in the continent, raised families, built civilizations, fought and died to protect their land from invasion, and lived there for thousands of years.
                  Race is not a social construct; it’s a very real thing. It’s not the be all and end all, for sure, but it’s definitely real.

        • “…were Scotland to vote for independence,
          it would…be…to rejoin the European Union.”
          Not necessarily. Did the Scots vote for the EU?
          Or did they vote against rule by the English without the EU?
          There are too many factors involved to be sure.
          “I cannot quite ‘get’ the antipathy for the EU.”
          Enoch Powell put his finger on it fifty years or so ago:
          ‘A Single European State cannot be a democracy
          because there is no European Demos to give it legitimacy.
          It can only be imposed from the top down.’

          The French voted against it – then it was imposed on them.
          The Dutch voted against – then it was imposed upon them.
          Then the Irish voted against it – but were forced to vote again,
          and threatened what would happen if they voted against again.

          Take me. I am a Scottish Nationalist. I have no time for the SNP.
          I voted for the EEC in the 1975 referendum, because
          (being young and foolish) I believed the Government’s lies.
          In the last referendum I voted for Brexit. Why? Because,
          at long last, I could fork it into the liars for the past fifty years.

          “An unprecedented decades long span of peace…”
          What had the EU to do with it, pray;
          with neither Army, not Navy, nor Air Force?
          But it wants an Army now (and no doubt the other arms),
          to be under the control of an unelected bureaucracy
          whose accounts are run like a Greek American Archdiocese.
          “…and economic prosperity”?
          Tell me: Did the former Federal Republic of Germany
          have to become one of the United States of America
          before they could sell a million Volkswagens there?
          Did Japan have to absorb the USA before all the radios
          were made in Japan (or under licence in Taiwan)?
          Did Scotland have to overrun the USA
          before Sinatra could have a Scotch on the rocks?

          Prosperity comes from making things people want,
          at a price they can afford and are willing to pay.
          All the rest is flim-flam invented by parasitic bureaucrats
          trying to persuade you to pay their salaries and fees.

          • I understand you may not support the SNP, but quite a few of your fellow Scots do! There would be perhaps a bit of a tragic irony if Scotland got its independence but then you were on the losing side of 48% that had to to rejoin the EU because 52% voted to join. Those are, as they say, the breaks.

            Come to think of it it’s almost a whole new take on the tired No True Scotsman trope: If you hate the EU so much you move to England to get away from it are you still a Scot?

            Don’t worry, America has a soft spot for Scots, I’m sure you can move there and experience the liberty of medical bankruptcy for yourself.

            • You have completely misunderstood my point,
              and show no understanding of what happened.
              Did the Scots vote for the EU, or against English rule?
              When they voted to remain in the UK was it because they liked the UK?  Or was it because they were told by the EU that if they left the UK they would be thrown out of the EU? Or was it because they were told by the UK that if they voted to remain in the UK they would get more local powers in Scotland?
              Well, once more believing the liars, they voted to remain in the UK and are now out of the EU and at the mercy of a UK government stuffed with people who are trying to destroy the Scottish Parliament – which is the complete opposite of what they were told they would be voting for if they voted as they did.
              This is not over yet; not by a long chalk.
              From my personal point of view?
              I don’t care about economic arguments.
              As I show above, these arguments are mince anyway.
              I am a Scottish poet – I’m a cultural nationalist.
              To me the Scots are a nation and should be independent.
              End of story.

              • Antiochene Son says

                “To me the Scots are a nation and should be independent.”

                I agree with this. Which is why I am most puzzled by the SNP’s foreign policy aspirations, which would turn Scotland into a cultural cesspool not unlike London. It is very shortsighted of the SNP to fight for independence, only to turn their nation over to the globalist order which will destroy their nation, and throw open the floodgates of immigration and every form of leftism.

                Is Scotland more likely to stay Scotland within the UK or without?

                • Given the nature of the current SNP leadership, the jury is out on that question.

                • Tim R. Mortiss says

                  It has never been doubted that Scotland is an ancient nation, and continues to be a nation. It has always been understood that it has the legal, and moral, right to exit the Union.
                  But it entered into the union because of some inescapable facts: it had a small population, and minimal resources. These facts were great impediments, particularly where it shared the island of Great Britain with the English.
                  It’s always seemed to me that Scotland was enabled to fulfil much of its destiny precisely because it was in the union. But that’s just one man’s opinion. However, the fact that it is a nation does not mean that it should choose to be ‘independent’. That does not necessarily follow.

                  • “It has never been doubted that Scotland is an ancient nation”
                    That is precisely what English rulers doubted for centuries, to which much of Scottish history testifies.
                    “and continues to be a nation”
                    The EIIR and ER dispute shows that if the Scots do not assert themselves they will disappear.
                    ‘…it entered into the union because of some inescapable facts’
                    The chief fact was that the Lords sold out for money.
                    The Church of Scotland sold out for ‘Protection’.
                    The people were opposed and had to be suppressed by force.

                      I always toast the King over the Water. Though I suspect my Scottish ancestors were against Bonnie Charlie.

                      What harm in saving the Pretender?
                      But who Pretender is? And who is King?
                      God save us all! That’s quite another thing…

                  • Antiochene Son says

                    Ultimately the choice should be left with the nation in question. No nation (or other recognizable sub-national unit of government with sovereign potential, such as a US state) should be ruled over by a collectivity against their own will, if those concerned determine it is against their own interest.

                    • Michael Bauman says

                      Antiochean Son, that principle is embedded in the U.S. Constitution courtesy of the 10th Amendment–probably the most ignored and overlooked amendment of the Bill of Rights. It is so simple that even the most dedicated word twister can do little to it:

                      The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

                      Only the delusions of “implied powers” and “the penumbra of the Constitution” can really twist it. Therefore both political parties tend to ignore it as it would invalidate about 90% of what the federal government does.

          • Brendan I have no skin in the game but in June 2016 referendum the Scottish people voted by almost 2/3 to remain in EU. That is a fact. U may not like it or you may be delirious over it, but that is the historical fact.
            In GE people vote on wider issues and they only returned 7 tory MPs. Johnson is detested in Scotland as u know.
            Historically Scotland has had French connections and of course scandanavian.
            I personally wish for Scottish independence. English claims it can’t be are an insult. And against historical fact and prosperous existence of say Danemark. Many of scotland’ s ill can be put down to it’s ‘soft colonial relationship’ with england. Sure will not be all sunny days, especially in Scotland, but nor is life is it? And independence gives a Momentum of it’s own to life.
            As to EU. That is for if independent, the Scottish people to say and EU to agree.

          • Tim R. Mortiss says

            “Did Scotland have to overrun the USA
            before Sinatra could have a Scotch on the rocks?”

            A splendid line. I’m going to steal it for certain!

        • Peace? Hah!
          “During its history, the United Kingdom’s forces (or forces with a British mandate) have invaded, had some control over or fought conflicts in 171 of the world’s 193 countries that are currently UN member states, or nine out of ten of all countries.”

          • Tim R. Mortiss says

            “And there’s another country, I’ve heard of long ago,
            Most dear to them that love her, most great to them that know;
            We may not count her armies, we may not see her King;
            Her fortress is a faithful heart, her pride is suffering;
            And soul by soul and silently her shining bounds increase,
            And her ways are ways of gentleness, and all her paths are peace.” 

        • Antiochene Son says

          EU membership turns over a vast amount of national sovereignty over to an unelected commission. Around the time of Brexit there was an estimate that about half of the UK’s legal code then in force was made in Brussels, or somehow connected with EU law.
          As Nigel Farage has said many times, if the EU had remained a trade treaty, it would have been fine. But it has taken on the trappings of a nation-state: flag, anthem, parliament, and is headed towards a military force. They are doing to the European nations what the 1789 coup-détat at the Philadelphia Convention did to the American states. (And almost as underhandedly.)
          The good thing is, the UK will never go back into the EU. They had so many special carve-outs and exceptions to make EU membership palatable, which would never be granted again in the future. Prominent europhiles like Guy Verhofstadt are already lamenting that there never should have been exceptions to EU treaties. Member states had better take notice and get out while they still can.

  2. The slogan was: “Cry God for Harry, England and Saint George”. Very noble, I’m sure. Except England had invaded France, not vice versa, with the object of making Henry of England into Henri de France. It was not about England’s freedom, but about England’s imperial ambitions. This particular ambition was checked, with a large measure of Scottish assistance, at the Battle of Bauge in 1421 and at Orleans in 1428 (when Scottish pipers led Jeanne d’Arc’s entry into the city) at the raising of the siege.

    • Tim R. Mortiss says

      But Brendan, you do err. Salic law was not devised for the realms of France. So Henry was quite right in his claims, as clearly stated by the Archbishop of Canterbury:

      • You have not identified any error I may[?] have made.
        You have only asserted that I am in error;
        citing a Roman Catholic bishop’s ‘opinion’ as ‘evidence’.

              You got me. A few hours after I posted, I remembered that the French bishops were Roman Catholics, too. In fact, everybody in both lands were Roman Catholics. Then I realized I’d been outmaneuvered…..
              But my Scots background, while real, is of the Canadian highland-games type; loved to go to those as a lad, especially. Some major forbears were Patersons. But when all is said and done, I remain an Englishman.
              At least in Monomakhos terms… the non-tragic history of England.

      Winds of the World, give answer! They are whimpering to and fro –And what should they know of England who only England know? –The poor little street-bred people that vapour and fume and brag,They are lifting their heads in the stillness to yelp at the English Flag!Must we borrow a clout from the Boer — to plaster anew with dirt?An Irish liar’s bandage, or an English coward’s shirt?We may not speak of England; her Flag’s to sell or share.What is the Flag of England?

By the breath of my mad typhoonI swept your close-packed Praya and beached your best at Kowloon!”The reeling junks behind me and the racing seas before,I raped your richest roadstead — I plundered Singapore!I set my hand on the Hoogli; as a hooded snake she rose,And I flung your stoutest steamers to roost with the startled crows.”Never the lotus closes, never the wild-fowl wake,But a soul goes out on the East Wind that died for England’s sake —

      Ye have but my waves to conquer. Go forth, for it is there!”
      Man or woman or suckling, mother or bride or maid –Because on the bones of the English the English Flag is stayed.”The desert-dust hath dimmed it, the flying wild-ass knows,The scared white leopard winds it across the taintless snows.What is the Flag of England? Ye have but my sun to dare,Ye have but my sands to travel. Go forth, for it is there!”The West Wind called: — “In squadrons the thoughtless galleons flyThat bear the wheat and cattle lest street-bred people die.They make my might their porter, they make my house their path,Till I loose my neck from their rudder and whelm them all in my wrath.”I draw the gliding fog-bank as a snake is drawn from the hole,They bellow one to the other, the frighted ship-bells toll,For day is a drifting terror till I raise the shroud with my breath,And they see strange bows above them and the two go locked to death.”But whether in calm or wrack-wreath, whether by dark or day,I heave them whole to the conger or rip their plates away,First of the scattered legions, under a shrieking sky,Dipping between the rollers, the English Flag goes by.”The dead dumb fog hath wrapped it — the frozen dews have kissed –The naked stars have seen it, a fellow-star in the mist.What is the Flag of England? Ye have but my breath to dare,Ye have but my waves to conquer. Go forth, for it is there!”
      Rudyard Kipling
      The Union Jack?  The English Flag? Really?
      I always thought the English Flag was the Cross of St George, corresponding to the Cross of St Andrew for Scotland and to the Cross of St Patrick for Ireland. The Union Jack is a melding of all three together to symbolise the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland (now Northern Ireland).
      However, to the English ruling class, English and British became synonymous as the English (in their own minds) were superior, not equal to the others – and not even First Among Equals. They were First Without Equals. Therefore the Union Jack is the Flag of England and the others don’t matter. The ER, EIIR postbox cyphers were a perfect illustration of this mentality; which is exactly the same mentality that is displayed by Bartholomew and the Phanariot Ascendancy faction – for that is what they are: a faction withing the Holy Orthodox Church.

        Kipling for my money is one of the greatest poet’s in the English language.

        • PS: I apologise for the messed-up linebreaks in the Kipling. Unfortunately the arrangement that appears in the reply window is not necessarily what appears in the finished post.
          I should have just sent the link. Mea culpa.

  6. I agree. I love Kipling. Google: ‘youtube peter bellamy a pilgrim’s way’ and click on the red cover of the ‘Barrack Room Ballads’ cd for a real blast of Kipling as authentic English folk music.

  7. “Comic book giant Marvel has introduced its own band of all-British superheroes to fight alongside the Avengers and the Fantastic Four – calling the team ‘The Union’. Scottish hero ‘Kelpie’ joins up with heroes representing England, Ireland and Wales, as well as leader ‘Britannia’…”

    Would that be All-Ireland? Or just the Northern six counties?
    Will this one sport a shamrock? Or a bowler hat and sash?

    • I am given to understand that that the ‘Irish’ component ‘Snakes’
      of this Marvel ‘Union’ does indeed represent the Six Counties.
      As Saint Patrick had previously expelled the snakes from Ireland,
      this is highly appropriate. So, who re-introduced them?
      The Anglo-Ascendancy! [Ireland’s Tourkratia!] Who else?

      It is also interesting to note that England is personified by ‘Union Jack’.
      The Union Jack is (of course) not England’s Flag,
      which is the Cross of Saint George;
      with the Cross of Saint Andrew for Scotland
      and the Cross of Saint Patrick for (All) Ireland.

      To claim the Union Jack for England is to make as Imperial a claim
      as the Ecumenical Patriarch is trying to assert over World Orthodoxy.

  8. Most palms flourish in areas with mean annual temperatures between sixty four
    and eighty two degrees Fahrenheit, but a couple of hardy
    varieties don’t mind damp, chilly toes. Palm family is exclusive within the facet that most of its members have muli objective advantages to the mankind, unrivalled by few
    other bushes. The feminine timber bear edible fruits
    of about 20 cm diameter. Over a lifecycle beginning from fruit
    to tree, the sugar palm or toddy palm offers six forms of edible parts at different phases.
    It is usually recognized as the Jelly Palm due to
    it edible crimson berries which might be harvested and made into a variety of sweets, jams & jellies.
    Coconuts are harvested every two months all year long. It isn’t a very common decorating scheme, but placing a
    number of touches of the islands into your
    own home can keep your house feeling like a seashore in Maui
    12 months round.

  9. George Michalopulos says

    As disappointed as I am in the “conservative” government of Greece, I must give credit where credit is due: both Greece and Bulgaria are closing their borders, thus preventing Erdogan from flooding Europe with more “immigrants”. So yes, I’m tickled pink that the odious, globalist, secularist government of Tsipras was given a well-deserved electoral shellacking.

    A must-watch from The Duran:

    • When there are Greek Islands with a couple of hundred inhabitants
      and several thousand Muslim refugees (some of whom desecrate churches),
      we are entitled to ask: What is going on? Is this colonisation?
      It is reminiscent of the Seljuk and Turkoman invasions of Anatolia
      in the decades and centuries after the Battle of Manzikert.

      • Michael Bauman says

        The EU is now apparently using Greece as the line of defense against the barbarian hordes invading from the east. Not the first time for Greece. At least the EU is sending money.

    • We here in Bulgaria have no intention of being flooded by unwanted economic migrants.  Bulgaria has an almost 20% native Muslim population.  The current events remind one of the Goths pouring across the Danube in 370s AD. 
      And why should Greece and Bulgaria pay the price for USA and Uk etc war mongering?
