The EU is all a frenzy with visions of plum cakes and $$$$ signs at the prospect of BREXIT. Bullying the UK and PM Theresa May seems to be their strategy as they demand a blackmail fee of $62 billion which includes pensions, health care costs, benefits, vacations and much more in their tally. A rather arrogant demand that would seem to delegitimize the bounds of integrity.
Unless you are Soros – and nervous.
The terms being demanded are not just about money but include a long laundry list that effectively calls for the UK to remain under the thumb of governance of the EU Commission, including adherence to the Single Market system, and that the UK must continue to abide by the international agreements of the EU. Both of which rather defeat the entire purpose of being a sovereign nation.
As a part and parcel of the blackmail, unless the UK pays up in full, any and all trade will cease. The top tier trading partners for the UK include; US, Germany, France, Netherlands, Ireland, Switzerland, China, Belgium, Italy and Spain. The US, Switzerland and China would be exempt leaving a hole of about 40% of their total trade subject to cancellation.
However, from a NET trade stand point, Germany, Norway, Belgium, France, Spain, Italy and the Netherlands are all negative partners amounting to about -$120billion on total exports of about $408billion or roughly 30%.
So, if the UK were to call the bluff, could they create a new market source? And what would be the trade impact on the EU countries attempting the blackmail?
The UK’s top import countries include; Germany, China, US, The Netherlands and France. That would mean Germany, The Netherlands and France stand to lose the most as they rank in the top tier of both highest partners of imports and exports with the UK.
Together, France and the UK account for over 30% of the EU budget, leaving Germany, Italy and Spain holding the proverbial bucket. Italy’s top export partners include; Germany, France, US and UK. Spain’s top export partners are France, Germany, Portugal, UK and Italy.
The circle becomes ever tighter as we consistently see that Germany is definitely central and would have the most to lose.
Interestingly, this also makes the France election even more pivotal because a Le Pen win could tip the balance and leave Germany holding a suitcase of shredded newspaper in the blackmail heist while facing FRAXIT. Which could explain why Soros and the Rothschild cabal are shaking in their boots, and ramping up a Macron win so as to put the plum cake pressure on Theresa May.
Utilizing his Socialist charm, Macron recently called all politicians that don’t vote for him “morally weak”. As in maybe he can guilt or shame them into supporting him? Strange philosophy. But perhaps not so strange when you are worried you are going to lose.
While ‘media polls’ claim Macron is a sure win, they also claimed Hillary was a sure win, Trump was unpopular, and Russia is the scapegoat for any and all things not pro-Soros. That being said, the election is truly up for grabs.
It is no surprise that Merkel is backing Macron given Germany’s shirt is in the game should Le Pen win and the entire Brussels blackmail would quickly sputter, falter and end in a death spiral.
It could also mean that both Italy and Spain would most likely reconsider their positions as they can’t economically afford to pick up the slack of both the UK and potential France exodus in terms of both $$$$ and migrants. It would also mean that the poorer more dependent EU countries would be all that was left outside of Germany and the EU Commission would be more like Robin Hood stealing from the rich Germans to give to the poor everyone else.
Ultimately this would destroy Merkel and put Germany on the chopping block. Unfortunately, of the six parties running in the 2017 election cycle, only one is not Socialist/Liberal, AfD, and they have yet to create a following.
