Damage to Israel’s Security Inflicted by Submarine Affair Will Linger for Decades

The agreement with ThyssenKrupp included provisions for what would happen if corruption were discovered on the German end; in that situation, the corporation would be able to cancel the existing deals. But it included no provisions on what would happen if corruption were discovered on the Israeli end.

The Edition: can Remainers unite against Boris?

James Forsyth writes in this issue’s cover article that the Remain side’s inability to unite may well cost them this election and, if Boris Johnson wins, put the last nail in the coffin for Remain. On the podcast, Alastair Campbell also explains why the People’s Vote campaign seems to have imploded in recent weeks.

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson admits electoral pact plot as rumours swirl ‚Remain Alliance‘ could target 60 seats

Talks have been under way between the unashamedly pro-EU Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and the Greens maximise their chances in key constituencies in the December 12 election.

The pact would see two of the three parties stand aside to favour the one with the best chance of victory – replicating the success in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election.

‚I am not a Russian spy‘: Jill Stein slams Clinton’s accusations

„I am not a Russian spy,“ Stein said Saturday on CNN’s „Smerconish.“ „I think this is a completely unhinged conspiracy theory for which there is absolutely no basis in fact. Not for myself and not for Tulsi Gabbard. I think it’s really outrageous that Hillary Clinton is trying to promote this crazy idea.“
She added, „You know, you can’t just slander people. You have to present some basis and fact.“

Green Party Torches Hillary Clinton For Claiming Jill Stein Is ‘Totally’ a Russian Asset

“Brazen Orwellian doublespeak” — that’s what the Green Party is saying in response to Hillary Clinton’s accusation that their 2016 candidate, Dr. Jill Stein, is “totally” a “Russian asset.”

“Clinton has spent her entire career as an asset of Wall Street, the police state and war — the real dangers to everyday people in the United States and around the world,” Green Party communications manager Michael O’Neil said in a statement to Rolling Stone on Friday.

The rebel alliance has taken control of parliament – and Brexit. What happens next?

Every Monday, a group of unlikely bedfellows meet in Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary office. Jo Swinson, Liberal Democrat leader; Ian Blackford, the SNP’s Westminster leader; Caroline Lucas, the Green party’s sole MP; and Liz Saville Roberts from Plaid Cymru all gather to discuss their common aim — preventing a no-deal Brexit. This rebel alliance is more than just a group therapy session: last week, they succeeded in taking control of parliament and immediately started to give instructions to the Prime Minister.

The war on democracy must be diverse!

Lucas, the ostensibly leftish leader of the Green Party, proposed forming an entirely undemocratic ‘emergency cabinet’ made up of her and her exclusively female chums. Its job would be to trash the thing that 17.4million of us voted for – leaving the EU. And how did the woke left respond to Lucas’s lunacy? By pointing out that her proposed cabinet consisted entirely of white women! Yes, it wasn’t the fact that Lucas was essentially proposing a coup against democracy that got the woke lobby’s back up – it was that there were no black faces in her clique against the masses.

800 years of democracy is unravelling before our very eyes: Distinguished historian DAVID STARKEY on how our self-satisfied politicians have launched a coup over Brexit

(17.3.2019)

The referendum was a very British revolution. And it’s been followed by a very British counter-revolution, which shows every sign of succeeding.

Don’t be deceived by the lack of violence or the comparative good manners of those now seizing control. This is a coup, and what is at stake is the nature and legitimacy of Parliament itself.

Ruled by comfortable, smug elites, Parliament is choosing to ignore the ordinary British people as they attempt to hold power to account.

To leave the peoples with no choice other than right-wingers and / or the second US on the planet is part of the paneuropean dialectic tactics. @UKLabour, @TheGreenParty THEY are the traitors. So let THEM sneer, keep your values and make it better! @labourleave @GreenLeavesorg

#GreenLeaves #glvlog #Brexit Brexit News – Green Party resignation

Green party’s Mark Hill comments on resignation of Leslie A Rowe, Richmond Green Party Parliamentary candidate 2005, 2010 & 2015.

Leslie Rowe Resignation letter to Green Party of England and Wales.
Monday, 25 March 2019

Dear Green Party, It is with great sadness that I tender my resignation from the Green Party. This is not because I have changed my mind on the need for a strong ecologically based political party in UK politics, quite the opposite. It is because the current leadership of the Green Party has taken the Party away from its guiding principles of democracy and fighting for a sustainable society and embraced the undemocratic autocracy and neo-liberal economics of the EU.

Minor UK opposition parties table vote of no confidence in government

The SNP, the third-largest party in the House of Commons, was joined by the Liberal Democrats, Welsh party Plaid Cymru and the Green Party, but not the main opposition Labour Party, in tabling the motion.

The parties want the government to debate the motion before parliament rises for the Christmas recess.

E-mail: GreenLeaves meeting on Sunday 16th in London

Dear all

I am very concerned about the latest moves in the Commons. There is a strong call for a Deal, even if that means mortgaging our future so completely to the EU that it would perhaps be worse than remaining in the EU as full members. Meanwhile there was a call from our ex-leader Caroline Lucas MP yesterday that demanded a referendum choice between Deal or Remain.

I want to test opinion within the Greenleaves group about how we should pitch our opposition to these two proposals. I would potentially be available to run a meeting on Sunday afternoon in central London.

The EU is an outsized behemoth beyond reform – the Green case for Brexit

(8.6.2016) Why do I disagree with so many of my colleagues, on this matter? Well, let me start by noting that I agree with the Green party’s assessment that the EU is in need of wholesale reform; I just don’t believe that it is reformable. Even if it is reformable, many of the reforms that others have made or are pushing for make it worse, as has been argued. So while I agree with the Green party’s quite negative analysis of the EU as it is, I just can’t support the idea that we must stay in to reform it.
