In a stunning turn of events that sent ripples around the globe, the United Kingdom voted to the leave the European union. Despite the erroneous predictions of the pundit class, the People of Brian have shaken off the bureaucratic chains of the EU.
Enough of the British, (52%), chose to stand for freedom yesterday. They did this despite the gloom and doom scare tactics of the Remain camp. The Remain camp painted a apocalyptic picture of economic ruin that a Leave vote would entail. However, the Leave vote countered this fear mongering very effectively.
First, they successfully called attention to the fact that he EU is net drain on The United Kingdom and other economically prosperous countries underwrite the basket cases like Greece. Businesses in the UK are hampered by having to conform to stifling EU regulation
Immigration also was pivotal factor in the voting. The free of movement of workers in the Eurozone has insured that Eastern Europeans and others have flooded into the United Kingdom and displaced many lower skilled workers. The ongoing immigration crisis in Europe and some of the migrants even violent attempts to reach Britain certainly alarmed the voters. Combine this with the massive wave of non-European immigration into the United Kingdom over the past few decades and it is easy to see the voters were concerned that Britons would soon be outnumbered in their own county. A country in which Muhammad is the most popular boys name will not be free for long.
Finally, the general distrust of the global elite was evident as voters ignored a long string of both domestic and foreign officials urging them to stay in the EU. The voters rightly realized that while globalization has certainly benefited the top 1%, it has increasingly left the working and middle class behind in both the United Kingdom and the West.
The British have shown that they will never be slaves.
