Why NO DEAL Brexit creates an instant nightmare for the EU because Irish/UK border cannot be closed - around 60,000 video views

Patrick Dixon, YouTube Futurist Keynote Speaker - Recent Futurist YouTube Videos - Keynote Speaker

Just returning from Brussels which was gridlocked yesterday with all EU national leaders. Boris Johnson set to become UK's next Prime Minister at next such gathering - part of long term global shift against politicians with carefully written, measured autocue speeches packed with well-researched facts, in favour of leaders who are more spontaneous, impulsive, emotional, outrageous and "authentic", looser with truth, often people with "colourful" and controversial personal lives.

And Brexit? Trouble is that in BOTH cases, the reality is that a no deal option is a nightmare. For Brussels it will certainly plunge the EU into customs chaos, because whatever they say, the UK / EU border CANNOT be properly closed. The ROI / NI border will continue to be a soft one because neither ROI nor UK have political interest or the resources to close over 300 miles of countryside border. Such a nightmare for the EU could only be stopped by effectively throwing the ROI out of the free trade area, placing it on a similar trade basis as the UK - with customs controls between ROI and rest of the EU. 

But this would be highly controversial and itself trigger a massive political crisis within the EU itself. The unavoidable conclusion is that in the event of a so-called No Deal Exit in October, if that were to happen at all, the UK and EU will both continue to be highly motivated to shift to a trade agreement, which would probably be implemented step by step, sector by sector, week by week, with all kinds of uncertainties in the meantime.

Why 25% of all deaths in Netherlands now caused by doctors deliberately killing people - euthanasia / mercy killing boom. Impact on your own family, life expectancy and future health care. Keynote speaker

Patrick Dixon, YouTube Futurist Keynote Speaker - Recent Futurist YouTube Videos - Keynote Speaker

25% of all deaths in Netherlands in 2017 were killings of patients by doctors, at their own request - up from 12% in 2013.

Most are dying in medically induced coma with the express purpose of killing the patient: unconscious for many days, with no food or water - so their hearts stop because of severe dehydration - 32,000 died this way in 2017. Why so many are requesting euthanasia, and what it all means for future of health care.

Comment by Dr Patrick Dixon, Futurist keynote speaker, advisor to global pharma companies and hospice-trained cancer physician.

More efficient than every home running their own gas boilers or air conditioning. Key is integration of many different energy sources including industrial waste heat, solar, wind, biomass and so on alongside gas etc.
