Brexit or Bremain?
The incomparable Daniel Hannan lays out ten consequences of Britain remaining in the European Union. It’s not as dramatic as the flotilla of fishing boats Nigel Farage led up the Thames in support of leaving the EU, but it’s certainly worth your while, as is this piece by David Pryce-Jones.
Clarice Feldman wonders if both British and U.S. voters are about to put an end to elitism, while Peter Hitchens sees the British people as rising, even as they cause chaos, revealing a deep level of distrust and societal division. Could it even help Donald Trump keep Queen Hillary out of the White House? The EU fat cats are sweating heavily at this stage, especially since Switzerland has just formally rescinded its application to the EU. They are now reduced to puerile taunts, along with the less juvenile, but quite unseemly, threats from His Oneness, which backfired.
A look at recent economic history should be enough to convince most people that Brexit has great merit, but many people don’t grasp the point of this fable. And too few realize this Thursday is the best chance Britain will ever have at regaining its sovereignty, although a record number have registered for tomorrow’s referendum, despite the heroic efforts of those who wish to remain in the crumbling EU.
