EU Olympics Medals Table Propaganda Includes BrExit Britain

Politics / Olympics Aug 22, 2016 - 05:40 PM GMT

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Politics

The EU's ministry for propaganda is painting a picture of erasing its member states sports persons hard work by slapping it's EU logo onto the medals table resulting in artificial result of twice the number of medals won than the US sporting hyper power at the Rio Olympics by including BrExit Britain in its medals tally when the truth is the Olympics exposes the European Union as being an entity that is literally suffocating its nation states in all aspects of life from sports to security to economy. When the truth is that NO athlete competed for the EU, not one!


Instead this is closer to reality of the medals tables as painted by the competing empires that use Sports as part of their great game.

This once more illustrates the true nature of the EU, a leech that rides on the backs of member states that contributes nothing positive instead is sucking the economic and social life blood dry of the member states. So I am sure most of the people of Europe would much rather be represented nationally in the medals table then be lumped together in a toxic soup of painted over national differences.

The reality is that Britain's Olympic team has beaten all expectations of a target 48 medals by achieving 67 that includes 27 Gold's and just as importantly Britain places second to the American sporting hyper power and thus even out doing the highly successful London 2012 home games tally when Britain placed 3rd to the US and China.

Britain starting the process of breaking free from the emerging european superstate has emboldened and fired up the British people to excel rather than stagnate as a suburb of Brussels, which is why the drowning european states that Britain usually comes well behind such as France and Germany can only look on in envy, where the best they can do is to threaten economic consequences for an independent Britain.

At the height of the EU Referendum campaign my following video expressed what the emerging mood in Britain would likely be the morning after BrExit, of which Britain's Olympics performance is just a taste of what to expect to follow -

At the end of the day sports is sports, and thus is just a taste of the freedom boost to come that will most significantly be felt in the economy, as all of the economic doom merchants in the pay of the establishment elite that populate the mainstream media will once more be found out to be badly wrong, as the British people and economy fired up by BrExit freedom of having taken back control will out do all of the establishments fear mongering as painted by the academics and political pundits and thus expect the UK economy to get a brexit boost rather than collapse, both from consumers going on a confidence inspired spending spree and from the export sector boosted by sterling's 12% devaluation, which has already been reflected by the stock markets strong performance when the fools that populate the financial press had penciled in a crash, collapse or worse!

Even Theresa May's government has latched onto Britain's Olympics performance as a 'template' for BrExit success.

For more on the prospects for post Brexit britain see my following two in depth pieces of analysis that are likely to increasingly become manifest.

And watch the following video of what actually happened on BrExit night that caught virtually ALL by surprise as illustrated by my selection of the highlights from 8 hours of BBC coverage of the EU Referendum result.

Also see the second video on trading markets during brexit night that illustrates how all hell broke lose once the polls closed Thursday 23rd June, triggering a sharp rally in sterling and FTSE futures that was sustained until the actual results started to be announced shortly after midnight triggering a 5 hour market panic.
