The Brexit Battle Is Far From Won

The longer the process is dragged out, the more the plebiscite’s result will be re-cast in whatever nuanced perspective best suits the political elite. ‘Leave’ is going to mean whatever they succeed in making it mean. Those who led the campaign have most of the work still to do

I don’t want to be a party-pooper but the celebrations have to be kept short. What does this mean? It means that the Brexit vote, far from necessarily being “seismic” in its implications (the favoured description, so far as I can tell) could, potentially, become a damp squib. The political elite have already started to backslide. My fear is that a formula will be found which will pay only lip service to the Leave campaign victory.

    They better not fucking dare.

      Clause 50 or Section 50 is all that we are going to hear about for the next two fucking years.

      It has every potential to become “politicized” by those who don’t want to exit the EU.

      Even so, it is a wonderful impetus for President Trump in November. Imagine Boris Johnson becoming PM in England after Dickless Dave resigned “in October” – you have two “wild blond hair” leaders in the UK and USA.

      Glorious days, and just watching the lefties heads explode is awesome.

      It’s what progressives do. They ignore/destroy what they don’t like yet view their own pets as untouchable because their pets are designed to ignore/destroy.

      What’s to trust about progressives that invert commonplace notions such as good and bad?

      I agree.

    Flogging the dead horse
    George Soros warned that Britain would face financial meltdown.
    Then he said BREXIT makes disintegration of the EU “practically irreversible”.
    Now he calls for thorough reconstruction of the EU in an attempt to save it.
    Anything for a quick buck.

      I guess Soros might like this post-EU entity called “Fünftes Reich” with one President instead of the current five to allow better centralised control, and with enhanced control of the economy as well as control of a strong pan-European military force. The vision of this one President-for-Life will be outlined in a book called something like “Mon Combat” (in French) which will also deal with the endemic problem of anti-semitism with a traditional Middle East technique of “Endlösung”. This last measure is likely to be well supported by an integrated Turkey as well as almost all of the current refugees who have emigrated from the Middle East. An independent Britain is likely to find itself locked out of Europe by a physical wall as well as a trade barrier together known as the Atlantic Wall, and this may require Britain teaming up with the USA and other countries to breach this new trade barrier to get on to the continent.

      I somehow get the feeling they have been down this path before…

    Sean Gabb has what I think a very good article on the subject dated today. Sorry but don’t have a link, so one would need to go to his website.
