What Happens Next (In Europe)?
the odds of another crisis are higher than a rally to fresh records. [...]
“The 2009-2015 rally originated from two main drivers: a massive stimulus, and credit expansion in China,” said Goette, who’s a partner at his firm in Zug, Switzerland and helps oversee 1 billion Swiss francs ($1 billion).

“European earnings have not followed suit so far. Skepticism regarding central-bank operations has started to emerge.”

Civil servants will be banned from helping Brexit ministers, Cameron says - Politics live | Politics | The Guardian
He put Brexit on the table because it was popular and feared to lose votes to UKIP. Opportunist. Career Politician. Needs a script. And now is changing the script in order not to lose the plot. The public voting yes. // David Cameron has made it clear that civil servants will not be allowed to help ministers who want to make the case for Britain leaving the European Union. He set this out in a letter listing four rules that will apply to ministers who want to campaign for Brexit. [...] [ and makes clear what his cabinet and peers can vote on ] Ministers will only be free to dissent on the issue of staying in the EU or leaving. [...] Ministers who speak from the frontbench will be expected to support government policy. But “we need to be flexible and apply common sense”, Cameron said. [...] This implies that Outist ministers will not be allowed to make the case for leaving the EU from the Despatch Box. [ Meaning his Brexit-Op is a dickless stunt. ]

Es wird schon nicht so schlimm werden, denken viele, mit leisem Ekel. Aber es wird schlimm. [...] Gegen alle Errungenschaften wie Mitgefühl, Kultur, gegen den Sozialstaat, gegen die Demokratie - was da poltert und pöbelt, ist die Macht der Frustrierten, gegen die anderen. Gegen die in der Unterzahl, gegen die Dummköpfe, die nicht wählen gehen, oder zu krank sind, gegen die Analphabeten und Denkfaulen. Der Rest zuckt mit den Schultern.

Henriette Reker mit Messer attackiert - Aufstand? Fehlanzeige. - SPIEGEL ONLINE
ufstand der Anständigen? Fehlanzeige. Trotz des Attentats eines Rechten auf eine Lokalpolitikerin hat nicht einmal jeder zweite Kölner gewählt. So viel Apathie war nie. [...] Die Oberbürgermeisterwahl 2015 ist eine einzige Blamage für Köln. Und sie ist ein alarmierendes Signal. Nicht in irgendeiner strukturschwachen Problemgemeinde mit hoher Arbeitslosigkeit haben sich die Menschen von der Politik abgewandt, sondern in einer florierenden Großstadt, die sich selbst für ungeheuer fortschrittlich hält.

What now for Jeremy Corbyn? - BBC News
His opponents outside the party won't let him forget his past associations - reaching out to Irish Republicans and vocal opponents of Israel - peacemaking in his view, unacceptable to others. That, combined with his economic views, out of step with the mainstream, means for most Conservatives his success is a political gift. They believe his election is a chance, not just to poke fun week after week, at an accidental leader, but to maim Labour for a generation. And his election expresses a fundamental truth - the least palatable for Labour at Westminster. The party's core was unable to offer an idea, or a personality attractive enough to inspire or convince. What was, for them, an uncomfortable fantasy is now real. [...] Could that powerful niche ever expand to become a true national movement capable of winning a general election? That really would be breaking the rules.

Europe's economic challenge not just about Greece - BBC News
IMF, Christine Lagarde, said: "I remain firmly of the view that Greece's debt has become unsustainable." [...] Greek debt will reach 201% of GDP some time next year. [...] It is unlikely a portion of the debt will be written off but there may well be an agreement to extend current loans and to lower the rates of interest. [...] [ the overall health of Europe as a whole and its individual parts in question] [...] the eurozone economy splutters. There is a recovery - the eurozone is growing at an annual rate of 1.3% - but it is patchy. In the [Q2'15] France and Italy, which account for 40% of the eurozone economy, flat-lined. Italy which had only recently emerged from recession fell back, managing growth of just 0.2%. [...] [ ECB: on balance, outlook remains on the downside ] The eurozone economy is still smaller than it was in 2008. [...] The fundamental challenges to the European economy remain - how to innovate [...] modernise [...] [ EU project living up to its potential ]

Die Griechen können sich per Referendum aus dem Euro wählen, die Briten über einen EU-Austritt abstimmen: Europa droht auseinanderzubrechen - weil wir alle uns zu wenig dafür einsetzen.

Eine gemeinsame europäische Strategie für den Flüchtlingsansturm über das Mittelmeer ist nicht in Sicht.

Spain enters a new political era - BBC News
Anti-austerity parties, linked to the Podemos movement on the far left, which is barely one year old, have the prestige of holding power in Barcelona, and could form a coalition to rule in the Spanish capital. Across the country the ruling Popular Party (PP) of Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy has been punished. The PP will hold onto the fact that they still have the highest share of the vote of any single party. But they have lost absolute majorities in regional parliaments across the country, including in traditional heartlands like Valencia, where the party has been badly damaged by corruption. [...] What is also eye-catching is that significant support nationwide has shifted from the PP to parties on the left, even though the PP has taken Spain's economy from the height of the financial crisis in 2012 through to a period of impressive growth. [...] That could be because the social impact of the recovery is still not being felt by enough of the people bit.ly/1J0fkU3 & !> bit.ly/1Ht0Nfi

Wall Street shareholders are the winners. And everyone else is a looser. No shared economic interest. Brexit is easy way out, the quickest and with short-term view only. The future is about being remarkable. The Purple Cow (Seth Godin). Differentiation in a flat world of borderless competition. UK ended up here because of UKIP. Why UKIP? UKIP is a Protest Party (opportunistic in itself and for those disenfranchised voters). See European Election 2014 results. A symptom of short-term view policy folly by Career Politicians who do not represent the common good nor make policy decisions base on shared economic interest.

In a SPIEGEL interview, she says her country is retreating into insularity and to attitudes prevalent in Victorian times. [...] It's a retreat into insularity, into a mood of harshness. When people feel they're being mistreated, they lash out against people who are weaker than themselves, immigrants for example. What's happening here at the moment is really ugly. The government portrays poor and unfortunate people as being morally defective. This is a return to the thinking of the Victorians. Even in the 16th century, Thomas Cromwell was trying to tell people that a thriving economy has casualties [...]

[...] The buzzword is "inclusion" and it refers to a trait that Western industrialized nations seem to be on the verge of losing: the ability to allow as many layers of society as possible to benefit from economic advancement and participate in political life. & http://youtu.be/hPPBYNKmuWc?t=3m52s IMF talking about over 70% of EU banks are Zombie Banks.

Jürgen Trittin: Plädoyer für linke Reformen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Heute ist es für viele Menschen, gerade wirtschaftlich Schwächere, schwer geworden, dem Begriff "Reform" etwas Gutes abzugewinnen. Viel zu oft war Reform ein Synonym für sozialen Rückschritt & Ausschluss aus der Gesellschaft. Reform heute ist neoliberal aufgeladen, es steht für Deregulierung, für weniger Sicherheit, mehr Armutsrisiko & weniger Demokratie. Diese reale Erfahrung hat die Angst vor Veränderung erhöht. So haben Konservative leichtes Spiel. Das Bittere ist: Für diese Diskreditierung von Veränderung, für die Umdeutung von Reform sind auch Regierungen der linken Mitte mitverantwortlich. Links reden, rechts wählen - das ist keine deutsche Marotte. Als Folge der Finanzkrise wurden in Europa erst einmal reihenweise konservative & wirtschaftsliberale Regierungen gewählt. Gerade dort, wo die Krise wirklich zugeschlagen hat, zeigte sich wieder einmal: Krisen sind keine guten Zeiten für eine Politik der linken Mitte. [GroKo: Das allermeiste bleibt, wie es ist.] youtu.be/yAmiQJYqjxM

Monitor - Nationalistische Kleingeister So viel 19. Jahrhundert...
Klar: Wohlstandsversprechen allein werden es nicht richten. Erst wenn die Benachteiligten spüren, dass sie aufschließen können und wenn wir Profiteure wirklich bereit sind zu teilen, wird der europäische Gedanke die nationalistischen Kleingeister wieder in ihre Flaschen zurück drängen. Ein frommer Wunsch? Mag sein. Aber was wäre die Alternative? + !!! + Jon Snow from Channel4 in Response to apparent NO Vote Campaign Win - "The scale of YES and NO participation in Scotland's referendum sends a powerful message to westminster: Address the UK's democratic deficit."

BBC News - Farage hails 'extraordinary' UKIP win in European election
Anti-EU parties from the left and right have gained significant numbers of MEPs across all 28 member states in the wake of the eurozone crisis and severe financial squeeze. However, pro-EU parties will still hold the majority in parliament. Turnout across the EU is up slightly at 43.1%, according to estimates. Turnout in the UK was 33.8%, down slightly on last time.
