Tomorrow is going to be a very interesting Day.

 

This is something I posted on a forum twenty-one years ago.

 

  From the International Express, U.S. Edition, 3-9 May,
1995, page 30, by Brian Hitchen:

                      PATRIOTIC RAGE

  ....The noble lord is remembered by millions still as
George Thomas, who was speaker of the House of Commons from
1976 to 1983....He is a man of enormous integrity and
impartiality who, after retiring, pledged he would stay out
of politics...As speaker he had pledged to defend the rights
and privileges of the House of Commons because they are the
rights and privileges of a free people.
  But he says he would not have been true to the great
office he once held if he did not have the moral courage to
warn against the danger to Britain's national
soverignty.....Lord Tonypandy was not attacking Government
or Opposition.  He was challenging all parties to give
Britons a fair chance to express their opinion on which way
they wanted to go: a referendum at present being denied to
us.  Britain has moved, he said, ever further into the
clutches of an assembly run by bureaucrats and foreign
politicians who have no love for our nation.
  "The fact is that no political party in Britain has a
mandate to surrender our nation's sovereignty.  And yet they
press ahead in defiance of all we know of the public mood
and national sentiment."
  Labour and Tory voters alike were being denied the chance
to cry halt. "If," he wrote, "I can help save the
sovereignty of Britain, I shall go from this earthly mission
to meet my maker singing the Hallelujah Chorus.
  What a wise and wonderful man.  And how different his
caring attitude towards ordinary people from that of our
arrogant, Euro-mad Chancellor Kenneth Clarke who fancies
himself as Prime Minister.
  When asked by friends about a referendum on Europe, Mr.
Clarke scoffed: "That's a dingbat idea!"  Have I got news
for him.  There are a lot of us "dingbats" out here.  And we
want a say in our nations future.  Now.  Before our
politicians give another inch away.

The pound is dropping like crazy.  

 

This will be interesting but it sure seems like a mistake.

A couple of other things I posted back then.  I tried to warn you all over there. You didn't listen.

 

From The European, 9-15 June, 1995, page 11, by Peter
Millar:
  "What the Bolshevik's, led by Lenin, believed was that
they knew better than everyone else, that democracy was a
tool for fools and the only real road to the future lay in
dictatorship by a small group of intellectuals who 'knew
better' what was in the best interests of everyone.  At its
worst today, this is the pitfall that the European Union is
in danger of falling in to.  It would be a strange new world
indeed if, after the spectacular and speedy collapse of
communism, the Bolshevik ethos were to triumph after all in
the councils of Europe."

 

From page II of the March/April issue of Foreign Affairs,
published by the Council on Foreign Relations:
  "Advocates of 'Europe'-a united, federal European state-
tout their project as at once a noble political idea and a
pragmatic economic strategy.  Both arguments are wrong.  The
European Union's bureaucrats will stifle the continent's
economy, and its politicos will breed corruption and
nationalist resentment.  Letting the EU handle security
matters would be equally disastrous, as the fiasco in Bosnia
demonstrates."

That's probably correct but it was coming anyway. 2008 was just an opening act for the main attraction.

The only certainty from this is Osbourne is gone in 48 hours, Cameron is gone within 2 weeks, and Corbyn will resign before the year is out.

Every major party sided with the losing side, there are going to be serious calls for house cleaning in the days and weeks to come.

Labour, however, is probably going to get the biggest calls of them all. It takes an obscene level of stupidity to be that disconnected from your voter base.

 

As for the economy there won't be a recession, there won't be catastrophe. Britain will remain in the EU for up to two years more under Chapter 50 while negotiations occur.

Contrary to the fear mongering, the EU needs Britain economically as much as Britain needs the EU. Unless the EU wants to shoot itself in head, Britain's exit is going to be relatively mild.

 

The real fun begins when you think about what France, Netherlands, Greece, and Italy are going to do now though. Britain's leave vote just legitimized a whole host of Euro skeptic movements.

As a Brit i can tell you we most certainly wont be begging to be back into the EU infact expect many more EU members to be holding referendums in the near future 

 

Thank you OP for wishing us well on our new independence day :)

This kind of reminds of that night I was watching on CNN, live from Berlin, when the Berlin Wall became no more. I stayed up most of the night watching it. That was a great night.

 

Congrats Brits. :)

Methinks they know not what they hath done. The U.K will leave the E.U., but I bet it isn't long before Scotland and Northern Ireland do their own leaving act. Great Britain might end up as just Mediocre England...
