There has been a lot of speculation surrounding what the changes will be in the relationship between the UK and the European Union as a result of the Brexit referendum. One thing we do know, is that according to a senior MEP, English will no longer be an official language of the European Union.
Danuta Hubner, the head of the European Parliament's Constitutional Afairs Committee (AFCO), warned Monday that English will not be one of the European Union's official languages after Britain leaves the EU. As Politico reports, English is one of the EU's 24 official languages because the UK identified it as its own official language, Hubner said. But as soon as Britain completes the process to leave the EU, English could lose its status.
"We have regulation, where every EU country has the right to notify one official language. The Irish have notified Gaelic, and the Maltese have notified Maltese, so you have only the UK notifying English. If we don't have the UK, we don't have English." said Hubner.
As we reported, during a Tuesday speech to EU lawmakers European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker didn't speak any English, instead making the ...
In his first appearance in European Parliament since the Brexit vote, UKIP leader Nigel Farage was greeted with raucous jeers and boos (presumably for enabling The Brits to exercise their democratic right to self-determination). Once EU President Martin Schulz had demanded (ironically) that they listen, Farage began his 'victory' speech by reminding his so-called peers of their laughter when he first suggested UK should leave The EU - "you're not laughing now... are you!"
"..and the reason you're so upset, the reason you're so angry, the reason you're not laughing is simple - you as a political project are in denial"
Other MEPs were vocal...
Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission
"Europe isn't exclusively a cerebral affair. Obviously we have to think but equally when you're sad, it's acceptable to be sad and I am sad after this vote in the UK and I make no secret of it. The British vote has cut off one of our wings, as it were, but we're still flying."
Guy Verhofstadt, leader of the EU Liberal group
"What makes it so hard for me...is the way it succeeded. The absolutely negative campaign. Mr Farage's posters showing refugees like in Nazi propaganda, which he copied at that moment. I never thought it was possible that somebody in this house should do a thing like that."
Marine Le Pen, leader of the far-right French National Front
"The British have chosen a route which it was thought was closed for all time and you were some of those who believed it was closed. Those who said 'It's all irrev ...

Everyone knows the key to investing success - Buy low, sell high. So why do the CEOs of the biggest companies in the world buy back their company's stock at all-time highs and when prices were at decades lows in 2009, they bought nothing?
These MBA geniuses aren't dumb in the traditional sense. But their decisions to squander hundreds of billion of shareholder money making horrible investment choices points to their greed and corruption.
Executive compensation is tied to earnings per share.
Since these dimwits are too narrow minded and myopic to figure out ways to increase revenues and profits through capital and intellectual investment, they turn to Wall Street stock buyback schemes to boost EPS artificially, while suppressing wages of their workers and shipping jobs overseas. Boosting their own wealth is all that matters to these greedy bastards.
It's baked in the cake that these CEO "investments" will result in hundreds of billions in losses.
And not one of these dumbass CEOs will lose their job for doing so. Because all the other dumbass CEOs were doing the same thing. Who coulda knowed?
Two explosions following heavy gunfire took place moments ago at Ataturk International Aiport in Istanbul, the third busiest airport in Europe. The interior ministry adds that there have been at least 40 inuries and at least 10 people have been confirmed dead.
An eye witness told CNN Turk television that blasts took place shortly after gun fire between police officers and unknown persons near the airport's car park. The Turkish justice minister says an attacker opened fire with a Kalashnikov rifle.
Local media reports that both blasts occurred outside as the attackers attempted to enter the terminal. The attackers reportedly detonated the explosive after being fired on by police. Officials say the attackers had not yet gone through the x-ray security checkpoint.
Taxis are reportedly carrying injured people away from the airport. Turkish officials currently suspect that the incident was a suicide attack, and Turkish broadcaster Haberturk reports that roughly 40 people are injured.

The candidates, the pundits and the media in general seem increasingly detached from the real world we live in as a campaign of taunts and insults replaces real debate on issues, says Darrell Delamaide.
