    NOT the mainstream neolib, neo McCarthyist, pro globalism, big corporate media:

    ‘Europe’s populist wave’

    https://www.rt.com/shows/crosstalk/428419-german-election-brexit-eu/

    “Italy’s recent election again demonstrates that the EU’s neoliberal agenda is under continued pressure, even under threat. Where is this grand historic project going? How should we understand the Italian election results, the German election, and Brexit in totality? Is the current leadership of the EU capable of governing effectively and in line with the wishes of the people it claims to represent?

    CrossTalking with Adriel Kasonta, Theofanis Exadaktylos, and Marco Bassani.”

    NOT the neolib corporate mainstream media… Italy going the way of Greece?….and a new Green ‘cryptocurrency’

    https://www.rt.com/shows/keiser-report/428539-episode-max-keiser-1235/

    “In this episode of the Keiser Report, Max and Stacy discuss the debate over whether to call it Italeave or Quitaly as voters are punished by the market and by technocrats for taking the wrong democratic decision of so-called populism. As investors increase their bets on Italy leaving the euro, what is the answer for Italy?

    In the second half, Max interviews Abraham Cambridge of TheSunExchange.com about their pilot program with the UN Development Program to bring buy-to-lease solar cells to Moldova. Through The Sun Exchange, anyone can go solar and start building wealth powered by sunlight and this is what the UN is seeking to trial at the University of Moldova.”

    The idea suggested by Rudy Guilianni? of Trump pardoning himself makes one word spring to mind. Is this not almost a definition of the word ‘wanker’?

    The once PM and former Finance Minister, who said the benefit is like a DRUG, he has been knighted at last, by the old boys and old girls network:

    And with Paula Bennett he also defended MSD’s approach to use questionable ‘evidence’ to move people off benefits:

    “Is the statement that if a person is off work for 70 days the chance of ever getting back to work is 35% justified?”

    Maybe their ‘evidence’ is not so reliable?

    But congratulations, SIR BILL English, it sounds weird somehow, not fitting, with a funny ring in the ears.
