Unfortunately vince the centre parties never get a look in,, even though the majority would prefer to vote for them. Everyone is so scared that the Extreme Left or Extreme Right will get into power they get frightened into voting for the opposite

Well, some migrant numbers are starting to come in, and Italy's new government appears to be stemming the tide. Their migrant traffic is DOWN 80% over last year, but Spain's new socialist government has seen a 350% increase in migrant traffic.

All according to the UN Migration Agency.

Overall, migrant traffic into the EU is down about 50% from last year.

Different allowances from country to country is bound to have an overall effect on the continuity of the union.

Hugely significant poll, even allowing for +/- 2% this is bad news for Merkel.

Pippa Malmgren, who is a leading US economic advisor, has ripped into business scaremongering around the Brexit uncertainty.

Dr Malmgren, who also serves as an advisor to the UK Department of International Trade, pointed out that foreign investment in the UK is still rising despite Project Fear.

She added that Britain is far better place to do business than Europe, where taxes and regulatory red-tape are an economic barrier to investment.

These remarks follows news that the pound has fallen to its lowest level against the dollar and the euro this year.

At the same time, Britain’s economy rebounded in the second quarter this year despite Brexit uncertainty according to Office for National Statistics figures.

Dr Malmgren, who previously served in the White House under George W Bush, discussed the British economy in light of the growing risk of a no deal Brexit.

The businesswoman told Bloomberg: "The key thing to remember is that many of the investors are saying I may not like the uncertainty of Brexit, but it is not easy to make money on the continent.

"It is not an either-or situation. Foreign direct investment in the UK is still rising.

The UN continues to push its globalist agenda with propaganda.

The UN is claiming that there is no migrant crisis in Europe. Sounds like that Iraqi general during the Iraq War.

In this case, it's Filippo Grandi. He claims that while there was a migrant crisis in Germany a few years ago, there is no such crisis in Europe and that reports are just drama. And of course, he attacked the populist countries of Europe whose leaders want their borders secure and their citizens protected. And of course, as with all of Grandi's kind, he threw around those terms of 'xenophobia' and 'racist' to try to make everyone cower in fear and silence dissent.

Grandi and the UN spout all of this knowing that nearly 200,000 migrants applied for asylum just in Germany last year. Citizens are beginning to see their culture, values and social mores disappear as a result of each country's citizens becoming minorities in their own country.

There is nothing to indicate that population and economic trends are waning on the continents that most attempt to cross European borders. This migrant steam is never-ending.

This type of rhetoric doesn't help the EU strengthen. It weakens it.

More noise being made in Sweden by Populist Democrats who want to see Sweden leave the EU. The leader of one of the parties there (Akesson) believes, and I think rightly, that "no supranational body should have authority over the Swedish parliament."

Countries in Europe have lost control of what is best for their citizens.

“The EU is a supranational political union where other countries’ politicians, for which we cannot vote, and they have greater influence over Swedish legislation than I have in Sweden’s parliament. I find it very difficult to accept that situation.”

Akesson is not rejecting cooperation between European countries. He's rejecting the EU process. "It is clear that we must work together to solve common problems internationally, especially in Europe, and I have never been opposed to it." Akesson also characterized the EU as "a major source of corruption."

The migration issue is at the root of all of this Populist Democrat rejection of the EU. Akesson has accused the Migration Board of activism instead of doing their job by deporting unsuitable migrants.

This message is resonating with voters in Sweden. The Democrats look to gain as many as 31 seats in Parliament. However, it won't be enough to surpass the Social Democrats, who are projected to lose seats.
