Vancouver to Investigate Real Estate Buyers for Money Laundering


Premier John Horgan of BC in Canada was joined by Finance Minister Carole James and Attorney General David Eby at a press conference in Victoria, BC, where they announced plans to move forward with a public inquiry in light of recent findings on money laundering.

The real estate bubble in Vancouver was built on a tax-free principal residence exemption and greedy politicians who were eager to benefit however they could. Now that the bubble has burst, they need to blame someone other than themselves. They released a report claiming that dirty foreign capital was the cause of the real estate boom. The real estate market is now under investigation for money laundering. It had been obvious for a long time that capital was parking in Vancouver. Now the twist will be to investigate and see where the money came from. If they can determine it is tainted, they will confiscate the property. Now that the boom is over and money flow has ended, it is time to investigate everyone to see if they can pick up some extra cash with allegations of money laundering. That should help prices decline even further.

British Elections


Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party is poised to dominate the upcoming European elections in the U.K., according to spread betting firm Sporting Index. Nigel appears to be leading with his new party to take 28 seats. Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives will win perhaps seven and Labour will take 13 with the Liberal Democrats coming in at about 12 seats. Of course, the Sporting Index predictions have been consistently wrong on their forecasts. As Nigel pointed out at the WEC in Rome, we were the only ones who got it right.

They made a forecast that was good on the trend. About two hours before the vote on May’s Brexit deal, the spread betting firm forecast she’d lose by 60 votes. She was defeated by 58. The Guardian ran the headline:

Don’t bet against the Brexit party winning the EU elections

The complete mess that PM May has created over BREXIT is just indescribable. She is determined to accept Brussel’s demands regardless of the consequences. She has even admitted that she could give into Labour’s demands to stay in customs union. Her entire policy seems to be to push it to the end and hope that the choice between a hard exit and her way will end with her victory. This has been a very dictatorial approach. PM May offered lawmakers a vote on whether her Brexit deal should be subject to a referendum, in a last-ditch bid to save it. Last time MPs voted on a second referendum, there was just a 12- vote difference, with 280 backing a confirmatory vote on a deal and 292 because Parliament is dominated by those who are against BREXIT as is PM May. This rising fear is that Senior Labour MPs are talking behind the curtain urging that Jeremy Corbyn should vote for a second referendum or face an unequivocal victory of Nigel Farage in the European elections.

LAGOM – “Just the Right Amount” & European War


QUESTION: Hi Martin,

The Rome WEC was a real eye-opener for me. Thank you for coming over to Europe. Especially the reports you released in advance of the conference. “The Fate Of Europe” pdf was especially informative. You’re explaining the structural defects of the EU make it clear it really is a doomed project, and just a matter of time before it, helped along by the ECB, descends into chaos.

Upon arriving home in Sweden I noticed this poster for a Swedish MEP candidate.

”Lagom” is the Swedish notion of the middle way. Not too much, not too little. Basically, blending in and being inoffensive. On the one hand, it’s cute, on the other hand, it’s sad. He’s clearly passionate about his political philosophy, but even if elected, there is Juncker, Tusk, and Verhofstadt waiting in Brussels to dictate to him what he has to do, and the structural flaws of the EU that make it all moot anyway.

Rome had this quality of crumbling neglect about it, like nothing had been repaired in 20 years. Unlike Sweden, that dutifully reinvests a lot of the tax revenue it collects back in infrastructure, Rome appeared starved of money and dying.

What does the computer say about civil unrest and war in Europe? I have the gnawing feeling it’s coming.

BIK

P.S. Thank you for Socrates and your life’s work.

ANSWER: Oh yes. I am familiar with Lagom. My interpretation would be “just the right amount,” so he is a skeptic partially. Unfortunately, the tension should begin to become more pronounced starting in 2020 going into 2022. I am not sure it would be a war, but certainly a rising trend toward independence.

Fear of Jeremy Corbyn Becoming Prime Minister in UK is a Threat to the Pound


There is a lot going on in Britain. Many fear that Jeremy Corbyn will now win because Theresa May has made a real mess of BREXIT. Consequently, the Telegraph is reporting that Britain’s wealthiest individuals are preparing to leave the country. The fear that Corbyn will take over Britain as the prime minister is rising. He is so left-wing that the #1 question coming from the UK is whether a win for Jeremy Corbyn could be the reason the computer has been projecting the fall of the British pound back to 1985 levels. It is clear that Corbyn just hates the rich. What he preaches has failed, but it does not matter. People like him just feel better hurting others.

Prime Minister May plans to submit another proposal but she is just resubmitting the same ideas rephrased. If she fails this time, the conservatives will ask her to resign. That could take place in June/July giving rise to some very interesting volatility overall.

Remarkable Success – Nigel Farage Brexit Party Leaps to #1 in Weeks…


There’s a remarkable political restructuring happening on the other side of the Atlantic. Nigel Farage has led the U.K. Brexit Party into the leading political force in a matter of weeks.

With frustration over the intransigent unwillingness of the political elites who control power in the U.K. to deliver on the Brexit referendum, the grassroots “Brexit Party” was formed.  According to recent polling the movement now leads in advance of upcoming EU Parliament elections.  It’s possible another political earthquake is about to happen:

(Via Breitbart Media) New polling for the upcoming European Parliament elections shows another astonishing surge in support for Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, while the governing Conservatives have crashed to fourth place on just 11 per cent.

The Opinium poll of 2,004 people, conducted online between the 8th and 10th of May, showed support for Mr Farage’s weeks-old party up 6 points to 34 per cent, more than Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour — down seven points to 21 per cent — and Theresa May’s Conservatives — down three points to just 11 per cent — combined.

The Conservative Party’s stunning collapse puts down in fourth place behind even the Liberal Democrats, who have been only a third force in British politics since the 1920s, and barely even that after arch-europhile Nick Clegg led them to near-obliteration in the 2015 general election. (read more)

Nigel Farage looking & sounding like a leader on . Love him or loathe him, at least he believes in what he says & argues it with passion. His popularity comes from his authenticity & his new surge is happening because democracy is being denied to those who voted for Brexit.

Macrone orders that Italian is no longer to be Taught in France


Macrone just signed a law where Italian will no longer be taught in France. The idea that Europe is one big happy family is so far from the reality that this is part of the backdrop behind the bearishness of the Euro. The old resentments remain. There has always been a strong resentment between the Italians and the French and this latest change by Macrone only fuels these old resentments that prevail within the Eurozone. What should have remained as a simple trade union has attempted to federalize Europe which is only increasing the tensions throughout the continent.
