Possibility of Italexit Increases. Brussels Freaking Out.

Word in of a new poll from Italy showing an increase of people wanting to do Italexit (Italy Exiting the EU) after the EU has so far proved to be a fat lot of help during the Coronavirus outbreak.

 

A new poll has found 40 percent of Italians would support quitting the EU and scrapping the euro as its official currency.

A further 6.1 percent would support just quitting the EU, while 7.3 percent support remaining in the bloc but scrapping the euro.

Just 41.7 percent agreed in maintaining the status quo.

The results come from a survey carried out by pollsters Bidimedia between April 15 and 16, who asked 3,400 Italians: “Would you agree to leave the euro and the EU?”

Politician Calls for Promotional Platforms to Pay for News Content

One of the first news stories I came across today was ex. Culture Committee Chairman Damien Collins calling for British Ministers to copy the Aussies in making Google and Facebook pay for news content.

This doesn’t really make much sense to me as a nearly 21-year veteran of using the Interweb, as these platforms are mostly intended as a place to promote content with a snippet like the one above in order to help drive traffic to the news websites.

This is a concept so simple that even a Bernie Sanders supporter can make instructional videos about it telling people how to promote their content online, and then make money with it.

They can do this through Google AdSense ads like the ones scattered over this blog, as well as other options such as Amazon Associates, Ebay Partner Platform, Media.net, BuySellsAds + others. Continue reading “Politician Calls for Promotional Platforms to Pay for News Content”

The Drudge Report Ain’t No Fun Anymore

There have been a handful of posts like these going around about the once well known news service The Drudge Report, which for those of you who don’t know is a news aggregation service that has been sharing news from around the interweb on social media since before it was cool (much like I try to do with this place, kind of).

This one here being the most recent I have seen pointing out it isn’t what it was….

Apparently there is a reason for this Continue reading “The Drudge Report Ain’t No Fun Anymore”

The Liberal Democrats Still Suck

For many years, the Liberal Democrats have had some sort of yellow bird as their logo, much like a Canary, which for many years (since at least the 17th century), has been a popular avian pet to keep in a cage.

The Canary-like logo is perhaps appropriate for them seeing as they also seem to want to keep the British population trapped in a cage, more commonly known as the EU, despite the fact a significant chunk of the British population voted to part company with the EU way back in 2016.


Despite this democratic vote to leave, the Liberal Democrats have been part of the problem of elitist moron politicians throwing a spanner in the works, and have vowed to continue doing so, and therefore must be destroyed like a rabid dog, never to inhabit elected government ever again.

PM of Luxembourg Decides to be an Arse***e

I haven’t had chance to properly read the stories yet, but on Monday (16th Sept) there was due to be a meeting to discuss Brexit or something between British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson, and his counterpart from the diminutive European country called Luxembourg.

It would seem that the Luxembourg PM decided to be an arse, and try to set up Boris by hosting a press conference outside in front of hostile protesters who seem to provide credible evidence that the people of Luxembourg have started mating with vegetables.

The other day, former British Prime Minister David Cameron crawled out of the woodwork to apparently launch a new book, slagging off the popular replacement for his replacement Boris Johnson as well as his former friend Michael Gove.

Mr Squeaker Vows to Continue Being a Pain in the Arse

The Speaker of the UK Parliment John Bercow MP (aka “Mr Squeaker”) has apparently launched an all-out attack on new British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, and apparently is toying with the idea of “procedural creativity” to continue screwing-up Brexit for the majority who democratically voted for it.
