Spiegel Online also shows the lack of courage of Europe

and its inability to work together on issues that matter.

Mass migration from 20 African countries and turmoil in the Middle East is unsustainable and there should be no talk of “quotas” or spreading the influx across European countries.

The solution is a joint military operation to clear out the troublemakers from at least half and preferably all of Libya. We should not be squeamish about this but instead very precise and very severe by hunting down and eradicating people smugglers using all available means.

The present Government in Libya needs to be replaced. The boat people in Sicily, Greece and en route to Britain, and in Britain, should be repatriated to a cleared area which should be policed by European troops initially and then by contractors from Blackwater(now XE), Executive Outcomes from South Africa and Saladin Security Services. In that cleared area, we can then build infrastructure using these people as our primary labour source but always under our direct control.

Overseas aid to African countries needs to be curtailed because as it is most of it is siphoned off by corrupt African dictators who run their countries very badly and cause impoverished Africans to flee from their despotic and cruel regimes. The worst examples of these regimes and their despotic leaders should be overthrown and replaced, one a time, as an example to all the others and that process needs to be continued until these African countries which purport to be able to be competent to run their own affairs demonstrate that they really are capable of doing so. This would stop the people smuggling, the problems associated with rescuing them from the sea and the need to agree or fail to agree squalid compromises in secret in smoke filled rooms.

Opinion – Greece Calls Referendum on Bailout Terms – WSJ – John Gelmini

There has to be a signal to others to obey the rules and Greece cannot be given special bailout treatment because other countries which have endured just as much and are at least trying would demand the same.

Whilst there is nobody on earth that can transmute Greeks into Germans or Britons, the Greek people are the ones calling for others to put their hands in their pockets, whilst insisting that they are 100% in the right. It does not work that way, not for them nor for the Scots who demand independence, tax raising powers and increases to the Barnett Formula. Greeks, whether they like it or not, have to understand that the free ride is over.

People who do not contribute to the costs of things really have no right to a say in anything, unless their position has been caused by a cataclysmic or unforeseen event that they had nothing to do with. That said the Greek people will be “consulted” and the rest of us will be presented with the bill without getting so much as an acknowledgement such is the contempt with which we are held by our political masters who see us as little more than cannon fodder or sheep to be corralled and fleeced.

Dr Alf who has brought us this news refers to opinion from newspapers about the possibility of GREXIT, the risks of contagion and the ghastliness of Greece’s creditors.

Just how sanguine would they be if their advertisers decided not to pay them on the grounds that THEIR banks were being beastly to them?

We will never know  for sure  but what we do know is that their lurid headlines sell newspapers and keep television pundits in a job.
