They have to ensure they get their money from somewhere, after all they're going to take a big hit soon :-)
EU refuses to accept a possible walkout

So much for a union!
The EU card-house is falling fast.
Why don't Germany and Luxembourg listen to other nations?

LOL.
Norway is not part of the EU.
Norway is not in the Eurozone.
Norway is the richest country in Europe.
And I do know Norwegian. All Swedes and Danes does.

That's Danish.
Translation of Flesksaus is Pork Sauce:)
The Danes love pork.

And in Sweden Kumla is a high security prison:)

Maybe you mean the fish Kummel.
Kulmule in Danish.

Never had the dish Kumla swimming in Flesksaus in Denmark.
Sounds....

The EU will on Wednesday unveil a multimillion-euro Defense Fund, marking the first time that money from the bloc’s budget will be used to buy military equipment and on joint defense capabilities.
http://www.politico.eu/article/after-years-of-talk-eu-plans-defense-spending-spree/
It represents a historic push by the EU into a new phase of cooperation on military and security policy, including on procurement of weapons and new technologies. And it comes at a time when U.S. President Donald Trump has raised doubts about his commitment to NATO’s principle of collective defense, prompting European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, to warn that the EU can no longer rely on its superpower ally.

Hmm...
I wonder which countries that will pay for it.
Germany is far behind with their payments.
But don't ask us Scandinavians for more money!

"In nominal U.S. dollar terms, the European Union (plus Norway, Switzerland, Iceland) accounted for 25.4% of world output in 2014 according to data from the International Monetary Fund. That was greater than America’s share (22.5%) and well in excess of China’s—13.4%..."

"Enough is enough", is what the USA is also saying.

After Brexit the US will be in top again.

If Europe cannot afford, or refuses to pay for its defense need to secure itself. In addition to securing its International Trade and Treaty Obligations.
If the USA cannot afford, or refuses fund European defense needs. And reverts to its Pre WWII beliefs about Europe.

Now what?

Are the people over there having an election to decide to break up into county size hunks so they can go back to their tribal warfare again? Not really sure what it is all about.

There will be a coalition between DUP and Tories.
That message gave May.
The coalition is required for Tories to gain majority in parliament.

How much power does the English queen actually have?
Seems it's quite corrupt that she gets involved.

Not being British. Please forgive if the following is incorrect.
The British Monarch's Authority in this, and I believe all other matters. Is just a Formality.
How much Authority does Carl XVI Gustaf have?

The British Monarch's Authority is just a Formality.
She's the Head of State though.
I wonder why the Brits still have that tradition that a PM has to ask her for permission before setting up a government.

Karl XVI Gustav? LOL:)
Tjabo as he was nicked in school has no authority at all.
We don't let Kings have power!
But he is an admiral and supreme commander of the Royal Navy.
Sort of:)
