Conseguenze europee e globali dell’embargo petrolifero (navale) alla Russia

(l’#Italia potrebbe trovarsi priva del 26% di petrolio raffinato a livello domestico coinvolgendo 8mila #occupati)

il commento di Alberto Clò

Secondo i dati Eurostat, la Russia, sempre nel 2021, è stato di gran lunga il primo fornitore petrolifero dell’Europa con una percentuale in termini di volumi superiore al 25% seguita dalla Norvegia col 9%.

Lo è stato anche nel gas col 44,5% dei volumi importati

seguita anche qui dalla Norvegia (poco meno del 19%)

Nel gas vi è una differenza più marcata tra le % in volumi e in valori, riconducibile alle differenti tipologie di contratti d’acquisto.

Nearly 2 years ago, on 31st Jan 2020, there was a dinner at Brown’s Hotel in London, organised by Telegraph columnist Allison Pearson. The assembled guests were jokingly labelled as The Brexit Batallion.

When I first heard about this I was intrigued to see who had been invited. Some of the names we’re familiar to me, but many of them were not. I’ve been meaning to look into this for some time. Now I have. Let me share with you what I’ve found out. #GaslitNation ImageImage
As that Orwell bloke pointed out, if you want to control a population, it helps to control the narrative. If all we see & hear, from multiple sources, is the same information, then it can only reinforce the feeling that “it must be right” & a majority will go along with it.

Every MP who supports a watering down of the parliamentary standards requires closer scrutiny.
WHY? Because it seems likely that each and every one of them has either broken those rules or would like to!

In the case of Owen Paterson, "No previous case of paid advocacy has seen so many breaches or such a clear pattern of behaviour in failing to separate private and public interests”.
#OwenPaterson #ThickAsThieves
#cashforquestions #expensesscandal…
Let's look more closely at those MPs supporting a watering down of parliamentary standards on expenses, payments, and paid lobbying, in case they, like Owen Paterson, have misused public office for personal gain.

For anyone who hasn’t realised just how deep the #BackToNormal lunacy runs, take a look at some of the “nearly 50” @Conservatives who are actively supporting @UsforThemUK’s dangerous & irresponsible campaign to make 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿schools #COVID19 MITIGATION-FREE!

The ring-leader is @SteveBakerHW, of #CRG AND #ERG fame. Neither he or his #CRG mate @Mark_J_Harper appear to have any understanding of #airborne viral transmission.
Mr Harper’s clearly also a fan of the unscientific & reckless #LivingWithCovid mindset.

But it’d be unfair to give @halfon4harlowMP ALL the credit for causing unnecessary harm & suffering.

Several other high profile @Conservatives are members of the @UsforThemUK support group.

Some of the “usual suspects”-

The Government’s position on #Erasmus post #BrexitDeal is profoundly damaging to future relations. Such a lack of generosity shows Johnson to be mechanically transactional. It’s that base - the Government don’t want to educate Europeans, as more travel to UK than vice versa.
Unfortunately, the EU missed an opportunity to act with true grandeur and magnanimity by allowing gratis participation by British students - NI students not affected owing to different status.
Thus British students are further marginalised. The EU could have exercised soft power by making this unilateral offer, not contingent upon cost.

Πέθανε σήμερα ο Cesare Romiti, μάνατζερ της Fiat για δεκαετίες και άρχισαν τα διθυραμβικά αφιερωματα στα ιταλικά ΜΜΕ. Σύνδεσε το όνομά του με τον πόλεμο των 35 ημερών κατά των εργαζομένων της φιατ το 80. Είχε προφητικά εισηγηθεί την απόλυση χιλιάδων Image
(αόριστα) απ τις εγκαταστάσεις της mirafiori, για την ανάκαμψη της φιατ. Κατάφερε να συσπειρωσει εκατοντάδες χιλιάδες εργαζόμενους, από διάφορους κλάδους σε μαζικές κινητοποιήσεις. Στην είσοδο κάθε εργοστασίου της φιατ, ήταν βαμμένη η προτομή του Μαρξ.
Ήταν ένα κίνημα όμως που προδοθηκε από το PCI και το psi, που αποδείχθηκαν αποζημιώσεις και λιγότερες εκείνη την περίοδο, απολύσεις, παρουσιαζοντας σαν νίκη του εργατικού κινήματος. Μέχρι το 86 απολύθηκαν πάνω από 60000 εργάτες, η παραγωγή μειώθηκε λίγο, η φιατ αύξησε

Την προηγούμενη εβδομάδα σε μεγάλη μονάδα (900 κλίνες), στην επαρχία Σητείας, η εργοδοσία ανακοίνωσε την περικοπή μισθού κατά 20%. Το ξενοδοχείο ΔΕΝ έχει επιχειρησιακο σωματείο και διαχρονικά αρνούνταν να υπογράψει την τοπική σύμβαση Image

Οι ζωές των εργατών μετράνε;

Όταν είχαμε κάνει, μαζί με την Εύη Συγίζη και την Όλυ Τσουμάνη, τις καταγγελίες από το Εργατικό Κέντρο Άρτας για την εγκληματική αμέλεια της εταιρείας "Ήπειρος" που οδήγησε στον θάνατο του 29χρονου παληκαριού Χρήστου Ζορμπά εν ώρα εργασίας, Image
από διάφορες πλευρές ήταν για "ανθρώπινο σφάλμα".

Οι πληροφορίες πλέον μιλάνε για ηλεκτρολογικούς πίνακες χωρίς ρελέ και για πόρισμα της Επιθεώρησης που "καίει" την εταιρεία. 40 εκατομμύρια ευρώ ετήσιο τζίρο έχει η Ήπειρος και 20 εκατομμύρια ευρώ επενδυτικό πρόγραμμα o όμιλος
Optima. Και, παρ' όλα αυτά, δεν διέθεσαν τα ψίχουλα που χρειάζονταν για την ασφάλεια των εργαζόμενων.

Η εταιρεία ήδη επαναπροκήρυξε την θέση του Χρήστου. Ζητάει νέο ηλεκτρολόγο. Να περάσει ο επόμενος. Θέσεις εργασίας - παγίδες για φτηνές εργατικές ζωές.

#GE2019 #GeneralElection2019

Are you still #undecided?
Are you thinking of voting #LibDem? Think very hard: your vote may get you a very bad #Brexit.
You want to #Remain & that's why you're voting #LibDem?
But the #LibDems can't #RevokeArticle50 unless they win the election. In 2017 they won 12 seats. They need 326 MPs to win. How many do they need to claim a mandate to #Revoke?
Maybe the #LibDems can form a minority government?
Could a minority government #RevokeArticle50? Even for that the #LibDems would need at least 200 seats. And what other parties would they then need for success? The #SNP might vote to #RevokeArticle50, but would they be enough?

We *can* have a new PM who properly treats 2016 as the advice of 26% and, #NowWeKnow, rejects that advice and buries #Brexit as the preference of extremists like the #ERG & @jeremycorbyn. We can and, despite the complex route, I believe we will. The insanity must end.

Today is possibly .@theresa_may's last day as PM, if .@BorisJohnson can command a majority (which is in some doubt...)

So it's a great opportunity to look back at some of the *highlights* of Mrs May's premiership in memes👇
13 JUL 2016: May was appointed as PM and named her Cabinet shortly thereafter, surprising many by giving 3 of the top #Brexit-related jobs to arch-brexiters Boris Johnson, David Davis & Liam Fox. Sheer folly, or genius in making them own what they'd sold? Sadly, the former😢
5 OCT 2016: With such a narrow result, the country could be forgiven for expecting May to propose a consensual solution, as Norway PM Erna Solberg had done in a similar situation. Most Remainers would've accepted #Norway.

May's #CitizensOfNowhere speech crushed all hope.

When #NigelFarage left #UKIP he started to re-invent himself. He's not talking about immigration any more. He's talking about being the saviour of democracy, and leaving UKIP to be the extremists. He's trying to attract a more moderate voter. The polls seem to show this working
I wonder, if he does well if the #EuropeanElections2019 and the #Brexit mess in Parliament continues, it might give some #ERG members the confidence to cross the floor. Will they have confidence that they can re-elected on a #BrexitParty ticket.
That would then likely cause a general election as the government would not be able to pass anything. The #Conservatives would not have time to sort out a new leader so #TheresaMay could end up leading them into it. They could get slaughtered.

More Old Bailey Sophistry from Codpiece Cox admitting that in order that today's vote is NOT an attempt to repeat #MV2 (to comply with Speaker Bercow's re-iteration of 1604 convention) it is also NOT a #MV in sense of #EUWA18 Section 13.1.b

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Attempt by Codpiece Cox to scare House into voting in a #MeaninglessVote for #WA (only) solely to secure the offered (actually only technical) extension of #BrexitDay from Apr 12 to May 22 sans guarantee of any other extension. Sophistry.

#BBCpc #EUWAdebate #VictoriaLIVE #LBC
Of course, if the House falls for Codpiece Cox's scare tactics, none of this will figure in future utterances by #TheresaMay's #Brexihadis - the headlines will scream 'Parliament approves #Brexit arrangements' (sans qualification or caveat).

If government stops serving the interests of the people, it is no longer a government. It becomes in fact an agent of the country's downfall, and that is exactly what this government is. Far from standing for the country, they are surrendering it to foreign power. #FBPE
... when one says "foreign power" of course many will imagine it is a country, however it is not a country at all, it is a supra-national entity, a network of business interests that seek to control the resources and the people of the planet. It's not a country, it's an empire
And when one mentions "empire" immediately some people will consider it conspiracy, because they don't see it as one, they don't see one "evil" leader, they don't see soldiers, they don't see the word "empire", they don't see it issuing decrees and waging wars...

Few thoughts on the #ERG proposals for the Irish border, an issue @awstojanovic and I wrote about back in June:…

The paper stresses that the ERG support the principle of no hard border, which will be welcome to all sides

Also says that customs checks won't be a problem - which is true if the Govt can swing the Facilitated Customs Arrangement, which both the EU and the ERG have problems with...

The paper points to an EU report, Smart Borders 2.0, as providing solutions to the customs questions. However, that report a) doesn't solve the problem and b) isn't an EU report (it was commissioned by the Parliament, it doesn't represent an EU proposal)

Top story on @SkyNews this morning: Tories openly discussing ousting May at an ERG meeting last night: Brexiteers clearly split between those who want a true Brexiteer in power (some Johnson supporters and those who want to chuck Chequers not here (the @DavidDavisMP camp)
But have they got the numbers? Could get the 48 letters into the 1922 chair to trigger a confidence vote, but No 10 sources say May will stay and fight......
Once confidence vote triggered, half the parliamentary party (near 160 MPs) would have to vote against her to force a leadership bid. No 10 sources clear she won’t stand down unless she loses a confidence vote. So there simply aren’t the numbers to force her out, yet.....

1) Following the failure of any Kent MPs to support business friendly amendments for the Taxation (Cross Border Bill) over the past 2 days we feel the need to explain why VAT is such an important issue for small business.
2) To begin, you have to understand that the #SingleMarket is only a Single Market for countries who are members of it. Businesses from 3rd countries not only have to deal with the taxman in each country they do business with, but also in each country their goods flow through.
3) At present, a UK company selling goods to Germany or providing parts in a supply chain will usually truck these goods via the @Port_of_Dover and land them in Calais. Within the #SingleMarket this is easy as they just pass through France without involvement of the French taxman
