BREXIT

As someone noted, the BBC bears a lot of responsibility for producing TV shows that left many of those rank and file Englishmen with an overdeveloped sense of their place in the world.

 

A while back someone was reporting from a place that voted very heavily for LEAVE. It was a North Sea former fishing port where the boats and old canneries are mostly idle.

 

Unfortunately, the EU did not create that- the fact that they were running out of fish and if somebody didn't manage the fishery it  would be down to none, was.

 

Looks like this will ultimately be the end of the UK with the Irish Republic ultimately reabsorbing N. Ireland and pro-Europe Scotland leaving.

 

They seem to believe that they can call on their special relationship with the US and get a trade deal. I'm not sure there's a lot we want from there either way and as far as any increased immigration those people aren't worth a darn at picking fruits and vegetables.

Re: BREXIT

What did your sabbatical last, about 15 minutes?

 

Anyhow,  The British people voted in a popular referendum to leave, not by allot but you know how democracy works.  Right?

 

Isn't that the process by which you guys want to decide who gets to keep their stuff, and who get to have someone else stuff?

Re: BREXIT

Sure, their problem. I just don't want to have to bail them out of their rash, Russian inspired decision.

 

They are, after all, part of that vast NATO plot against Real 'Murcans and the heart of the Deep State with guys like Christopher Steele.

Of course the question remains how fair and proper the election was and how much interference happened like in other elections of democracies.

Some reading for you

Re: BREXIT

You act like Russia influencing a sovereign member of the western alliance is a bad thing or something.

Re: BREXIT

Basically you're shopping for a reason to invalidate a democratic vote that you don't like the outcome of.  Same as idiots in this country that continue the same nonsense.  

 

If you don't believe a people are able to sort through the various influences they are subjected to in making wise choices why do you want democracy?

Re: BREXIT

Why do you think I'm interfering in their affairs?

 

I'm just observing that they've run into some challenges that perhaps drunken soccer hooligans with internet connections didn't anticipate.

Re: BREXIT

No, its not supposed to be.  Is your head of state elected or a Monarch from a primitive age?

 

And those articles you posted.  Be as sceptical of humans as you are of divinity.   The source relied upon for the senate reports is the one Greenwald talks about in this article:
