It’s unbelievable in this country right now.  The political establishment paused briefly to shut out Farage and then imploded up their own arse.  The media is engaged in a treasonous campaign of dividing the country because the referendum was ‘unfair’ and should be ignored or rerun.  They keep pushing the line that the Pound has died and the City (financial establishment) crashed and burned.  Neither is true.  But they are working on it.

The Tories.

George Osborne, the Chancellor of the Exchequer (Finance Minister), who was the source of many a treasonous financial scare for ProjectFear, has gone missing.  Nowhere to be seen.  Rumoured to be canvassing for support to run for Leader of the Conservative Party.  ISYN.  This man’s career ist gefockt. And he wants Cameron’s job.  As Chancellor he is supposed to be calming the markets and getting the media to STFU because they are damaging the country.  Treasonous failure to protect the country.

David Cameron.  Basically has resigned as Prime Minister and leader of the Tories.  He remains in place as a dead duck until replaced (which is a story in itself).  So the country is in turmoil and Ol’ Spineless has disappeared.  I’m very glad that he’s going, but it’s his patriotic duty to remain in place steadying the country until replaced by relevant leadership going forward.

Tory party. Has now dissolved into looking for a new leader.  The country is of no interest until the interests of themselves as individuals and their party are settled.

Boris is the frontrunner in the leadership race.  He’s an obvious candidate, but has a smell of untrustworthyness about him.  Look him up if you want details.  He’s kind of a Trumpy character if seen from a RINO perspective.  BoJo.  I could live with him but…

Theresa May is the anyone-but-Boris candidate.  She’s dreadful.  She supports Sharia courts in the UK.  Supports a police-state.  A surveillence state.  Ineffective as Home Secretary (‘Internal Minister for the UK’?).  Failed for years to eject clear enemies of our society (due to the EU mainly).

Some other runners and riders, some of them may be perfectly acceptable.  But the talk is BoJo vs May.  I’ll accept BoJo with little enthusiasm.  May is unacceptable.  She had a track record of euroscepticism, but come the referendum?  She declared for remain.  She then disappeared for the entire campaign.  So no conviction.  She’s being pushed as a uniter(!) because she hid from sight.  She’s a principle free opportunist (much the same as BoJo is rumoured to be) that chose the wrong side.

The Labour Party.

Current ‘leader’ is Jeremy Corbyn.  Think Bernie Sanders.  His MPs think he’s useless.  They’re right (about that only).  There’s been a mass resignation from his Shadow Cabinet (in effect a mirror to the government) today.  Jezza don’t care.  The problem is that Labour party rules make it very hard to evict a leader.  Beyond that, even if they make a succesful challenge to his leadership, the vote will go to the grass roots members…and they will re-elect him.  The Labour party ist gefockt.  As a true-believer long term irrelevancy in the party, he got made leader due to the lack of anyone else having credibility…and he’ll let it bern to the ground rather than step aside.  The MPs are solidly out of touch with the people.  The people want someone who’s unelectable.  There are no plausible candidates to stand against Jezza.  They all had a chance last time…they have nothing more to offer next time.  The people know that Jezza wanted ‘out’, he failed to campaign for ‘in’ (as the party machinary demanded).  Many followers deserted the official party line to vote ‘out’.  I see no reason for them coming back if the Bliarite side of the party regain leadership.

The Lib-Dems.

The Norwegian Blue of political parties.  Stirring up shit looking to take advantage.  No regard for the consequences for the country.  Disgusting.

The SNP.

As ever, they are shit-stirring against evil Westminster.  Last seen claiming a veto over the UK leaving the EU…get gefockt.  Sturgeon is talking up a storm, but trying to avoid being forced into having her bluff called.  Vis calling another Scottish referndum to leave the UK.  The case for which is even weaker than the last time.  Oil has since crashed (no money).  Would be forced into the Euro, when the vast majority of their trade is with England.  She knows she’d lose and she knows that winning would be catastrophic.


Nigel Farage frozen out of all dealings with the EU.  Or more accurately, frozen out of being part of the discussions should the Tory-Leave campaigners ever get their heads out of their arses far enough to have those discussions.  The Tory-Leavers will only talk of UKIP taking part in terms of Douglas Carswell (an ex-Tory that defected to UKIP).  He’s very different to Nigel…let’s put it that way.  But he’s very useful as a plant and as a distraction from Nigel.  I am disgusted by this.  This is the Tories putting their party ahead of the country AGAIN.

The Heroes?

The EU Commission…yeah.  They’re the ones pushing for the UK to declare Article 50.  Basically trigger the formal ejection process.  My heroes.  Currently I’m rather unsure whether the Tory-Leavers aren’t currently leading us to a disasterous middle ground.

The tripe

Some examples of the tripe being proposed?

Let’s just forget the referendum.  Pretend it never happened.

Stay in with a temporary (no specification of period) halt on immigration from the EU.  So, no change with anything else (control freak state) and back to the status-quo as soon as the elite reckon they can get away with it…not long, given the referendum catastrophuck.

The military among you might understand the significance of

Union-Flag - Distress

The country is paralysed.  The press is engaged in wilfully causing damage.  The politicians have disappeared and are rumour-mongering betrayal of the democratic vote.  The main hope against that is the EU autocrats who are pushing the UK to just get on with it.

Fuck these useless bastards.  Before they fuck the rest of us.

    BBC & Sky still on Remain manouvres – bias worse than ever.

    Scotland irrelevant – tiny % of UK and with oil where it is they are not leaving UK – no need therefore to give Sturgon airtime

    Talking up 2nd GE – no need with fixed term Parliament and just being raised as way to overturn referendum result

    Endless coverage of people unhappy with result but sure we would have none of that if Remain won

    CaptainBritain Selohesra • 2 hours ago
    More than half of those that voted in the referendum voted to leave the EU and yet they are getting hardly any MSM coverage at all – it is endless doom and gloom stuff – blanket coverage from the pro-EU doom-mongers and the miserablists from the left whining about how its all so unfair and how those who voted to leave the EU are all uneducated rabid old racists that hate all foreigners. The bias is so unbelievably blatant – to hear it anybody would think that the 52% simply didn’t exist.

    ajibee Selohesra • an hour ago
    Two out of five Scots, nigh on 40%, voted Leave, same as in London. The idea that Scotland or London voted “overwhelmingly” Remain is a figment of Remainiac imaginations being pushed by the BBC. Let Sturgeon huff and puff, give her an Indyref2 in a year or two (once things have calmed down) and she’ll lose it again, and she knows it too.

    Not May. Tories – don’t be idiots again. May is appalling – terrible minister, a police state authoritarian, presided over record immigration and asylum for years, wouldn’t commit to either side over Brexit (careerist coward). I’d vote for Jezza rather than Morticia.

    Chirgwin Gen d’Eau • 3 hours ago
    She is a police state authoritarian who is more interested in implementing expensive and useless schemes to spy on the rest of us, than tackling the immigration which brings real terrorists into the UK. No May – or I vote for Jezza. That’s how much I despise that woman.

    Nicky Morgan said it is time for a Woman Leader, it is the 21st Century afterall.

    Seems she is unfamiliar with Margaret Thatcher.

    I am fed up with clone politicians repeating clichés.

    Thicky Morgan seems to have forgotten

    Margaret Hilda Thatcher, Baroness Thatcher, LG, OM, PC, FRS, FRIC (née Roberts; 13 October 1925 – 8 April 2013) was a British stateswoman and politician who was the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1979 to 1990 and the Leader of the Conservative Party from 1975 to 1990. She was the longest-serving British Prime Minister of the 20th century and the first, and to date, the only woman to have held the office. A Soviet journalist dubbed her the “Iron Lady”, a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style. As Prime Minister, she implemented policies that have come to be known as Thatcherism.

    Originally a research chemist before becoming a barrister, Thatcher was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Finchley in 1959. Edward Heath appointed her Secretary of State for Education and Science in his 1970 government. In 1975, Thatcher defeated Heath in the Conservative Party leadership election to become Leader of the Opposition and became the first woman to lead a major political party in the United Kingdom. She became Prime Minister after winning the 1979 general election.

    emphasis mine, obviously

    Let’s have an end to these main stream parties and their press lackies, particularly the BBC. We voted to rid ourselves of bureaucrats, social reformers and politicians. So, it’s time to demolish both Tory and Labour parties, they are pre referendum edifices.

    If they get rid of Corbyn and replace him with a metrosexual EU-lover (like Bliar or Cameron) then UKIP will claim vast swathes of the north of England come elections national and local.

    If Corbyn remains, vast swathes of anybody with anything to lose will be forced to vote not-Labour down south. That might actually be UKIP as well.

    If the Tories under anybody betrays the OUT result then UKIP will decimate them. Even if they don’t, there are lots of Tory MPs that got voted in as eurosceptics, but then campaigned for ‘in’. They are in for much shit with their local voters.

    The SNP is talking the talk while backing away from running another referendum, not sure that that has consequences…many sweaties don’t have anywhere else to go with their votes.

    Sinn Fein wants a referendum on Irish reunion (rumoured anyway). Pretty sure that that might not go down well with some up north. And the NI economy relies on a LOT of UK state support. Much of the Irish peace came as a result of the EU pumping much cash into the south. The EU won’t be able to keep that up.

    From Guido’s page
    “David Davis – Said to want another go.”


    This is where the potential Tory leadership contenders stand this morning:

    Boris Johnson – Will announce he’s running within days. Jesse Norman, Nadhim Zahawi and Ben Wallace are phoning round MPs canvassing for support. Faces a battle to get on the ballot from Cameron’s allies, Remain MPs and a number of Leavers too. The story of the next few weeks is whether anyone can ‘Stop Boris’.
    Theresa May – Definitely a goer, the leading ‘Anyone But Boris’ candidate. Her aides did a ring around yesterday and a group of 20+ Remain MPs met on Friday where her name came up. MPs believe only she can beat Boris with the members. Several Leavers would back her. But would Cameron and Osborne?
    Michael Gove – Many Leave MPs wanted him to run but he has always had reservations. Sunday Times says he is backing Boris. Out of the running.
    Stephen Crabb – Sets out his stall in two Sunday papers. Has the personal story but MPs say he isn’t PM material. Could be the Cameron/Osborne choice. Faces fight to the death with May to be the Remain candidate.
    Andrea Leadsom – Name has been doing the rounds for months. Leader of the Fresh Start group which will be a player in the next few years. Potential Chancellor?
    Liam Fox – Intends to stand. Has significant backing from the south-west contingent of MPs. Will he make a deal for a Cabinet post? Whoever squares him off will get a boost.
    George Freeman – Who? He’s the Life Sciences minister and the Sunday Times says he’s running with the backing of 30 MPs from the 2010 and 2015 intakes. He has tweeted that he is “discussing how best to get a bold Programme of OneNation reforms centre stage. #NoPlans“
    Nicky Morgan – Arch-Europhile. “Friends” unsubtly briefed Sky that she was “taking soundings“, which was treated with as much derision as when she put herself forward at conference last year.
    Jeremy Hunt – Tipped by the Mail on Sunday today, and previously by Toby Young and Peter Oborne. Could Cameron and Osborne back him? His SpAd Ed Jones has cryptically posted on Facebook that he is “losing his job”.
    Dominic Raab – David Davis’ old chief of staff is something of a hipster choice for Tories who fancy a flutter. Name was in the mix pre-referendum and he had a good war. An outside right-wing choice, seems a long shot.
    Priti Patel – Has ruled herself out.
    George OsborneMissing, loathed by Leavers over his scorched earth campaign and punishment budget. Isabel Oakeshott says he spent yesterday canvassing support. Has longer odds than Priti, and she’s not even in the running.
    Sajid Javid – Eurosceptic who went with Osborne and will forever live to regret it.
    David Davis – Said to want another go.
    Graham Brady – Chairman of the 1922 so has influence, said to fancy himself.
    Adam Afriyie – Genuinely not ruling himself out. LOL.

    what put the SNP in power in Scotland was the complete inadequacy of the Scottish Labour Party. The metropolitan London elitist lefties just ignored the Scots as being a done deal, votes owned, no attention required. So in the last General Election the SNP swept them aside en masse.
    Although Corbyn is a very hard lefty mong, the party pressured him into supporting ‘IN’, so once again the Labour Party ignored the workers…in the North of England particularly. They will be wiped out in the north of England as well as Scotland unless they have a miracle. And I have no idea how they get a miracle.

Before she becomes the EU’s gravedigger for good, she should follow David Cameron’s example.”

    I’m afraid that I’m running low on optimism right now. Looks like the Tory Leave group is…is going to do as little as possible.

    The author of much of ProjectFear, who went missing as soon as the result came in. Osborne rewarded in next government if BloJo wins (his opponent will be worse)

    BloJo’s announcement

    It is said that those who voted Leave were mainly driven by anxieties about immigration. I do not believe that is so. After meeting thousands of people in the course of the campaign, I can tell you that the number one issue was control – a sense that British democracy was being undermined by the EU system, and that we should restore to the people that vital power: to kick out their rulers at elections, and to choose new ones.

    We’re a small island with very high population, all our infrastructure is creaking under the weight of ever increasing numbers. Working class wages in particular are being depressed by immigrants. Crime is rising. And you say that it’s not really a big issue? Sovereignty is the most important as it means we can control immigration, but immigration itself is a huge issue.

Okay, there wasn’t much flexing of the muscles and compared to Clarkson and co, there were few laddish displays of braying masculinity, but a glimpse of a few more women might have made this episode feel more balanced. This may be the eternal complaint when it comes to motoring shows, but Sabine Schmitz has breathed new life into this format and it’s a shame we didn’t see her tonight.

    quotas for women next? who cares? The old team found Sabine, they had her on a few times. She was fine. But she wasn’t needed to bump the uterus count.

    There is a very slight but still discernible indication that regions with a larger Jedi presence fell in favor of remaining in the European Union. Which makes absolute sense. After all, the Jedi led the fight against the Separatists during the Clone Wars, struggling to keep the Republic from splitting into isolated systems. While the few surviving Jedi did seek to destabilize the Galactic Empire after Palpatine seized power, it was always with the goal of forming a new republic and bringing balance to the Force.

    With 72.2 percent overall turnout, I’m almost certain the Jedi voted, and voted for Remain. They tried. But alas, as Yoda taught us, do, or do not. There is no try.

    There is only one proper, appropriate, and fruitful response to Brexit, and that is to chill. But deep—or not so deep—inside too many Brexit critics is a repressed desire to freak. Although we should all stage an exit of our own from the therapeutic mantra that everything repressed must be released, it’s true that this bottled-up freakout—far more powerful than even the pent-up rage of the world’s populists, fascists, or racists—has to do with something real. Millions of people simply do not think they can cope with a world gone seriously wrong.

    Ask, or look, around: how many of your fellow citizens, how many online interlocutors, have the cognitive, psychological, or spiritual readiness to live into a world like the world of 1918 or 1940? Even the smaller worlds of the Black Plague or the Thirty Years’ War are beyond contemplation. Just a whisper of a risk of catastrophe ushers in an all-consuming fear. Even life as it was last year had people muttering they could never bring a child into this uncertain a world

    Britain can still make deals with individual countries on student exchange or travel or whatever. British citizens can still get access to the euro, and use it on the continent. There’s also the fact British businesses (and people) will see plenty of regulations disappear once Brexit is complete. Economic liberalism (pro-free markets) is never a bad thing, and Brexit is probably a step in the right direction. Britons have taken a risk in deciding to leave the EU, which is not a bad thing. Norway has done fine without the EU, and Britain probably will too. Millennials are going to have to learn what it’s like to not be in the EU, and that’s going to cause growing pains. What will be intersecting to see is what the next generation of Britons are like if UK stays on its Brexit course.

    This Wall Street Journal story this morning about how the Brexit vote unfolded in the Labour Party stronghold of Sunderland wins Power Line’s Understatement of the Year Award. Keep in mind that it was the Labour government under Tony Blair that pushed for expanded immigration to bolster the ranks of Labour voters, just as Democrats in the U.S. want expanded immigration to swell the ranks of Democratic voters:

    SUNDERLAND, England—Labour politician Paul Brannen set out to fight a referendum campaign that would unify residents of this northern industrial town around the benefits of staying in the European Union.

    But as he stood early Friday morning in a vote-counting hall watching the blue-collar district’s strong backing emerge for leaving the EU, a pale Mr. Brannen said he realized where pro-EU campaigners had fallen short.

    “We should have done more on immigration,” he said.

    Just cast your mind back to that distant and half-forgotten era all of five days ago when David Cameron still appeared to be a vaguely credible Prime Minister and Jean-Claude Juncker was so confident of a Remain victory that already he was boasting about how extravagantly the EU planned to shit all over us once we’d handed back the prison warders the keys.

    Remember? Good. Then what you’ll also recall – now that it has all come flooding back to you – is that at the time the prospect of Brexit was literally unthinkable.

    It was, I suggested, about as likely as me going to a bar and picking up a supermodel; then taking her home; then discovering that, no, she wasn’t in fact a ladyboy or Bruce Jenner or anything like that, but she was a really hot chick who actually wanted rampant sex. With me.

    What made it unthinkable was that all the experts had lined up to tell us it was. First came President Obama warning us that we’d be banished like naughty boys to the back of something called “the queue”; then came all the other bigwigs from the IMF’s Christine Lagarde and the German Chancellor Angela Merkel to the Governor of the Bank of England and the Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne, all variously confirming with the expertise and authority of their office that no actually it would be worse than that: markets would crash, property prices would plummet, businesses would hurry to relocate, the pound would become as worthless as the Zimbabwean dollar, men would say openly that Christ and his saints slept etc. Oh, and also, of course, World War III would break out.

    That last contribution came from David Cameron, whom you probably won’t remember now, but he’s the Prime Minister whose main career achievement – indeed possibly whose only career achievement – was to change Britain’s laws on gay marriage.

    Reptiles, insects, shit flowing from the busted sewer of bad ideas—this is how the media elite views the minds and actions of Brexit people.

    A recurring theme in the elitist rage with the pro-Brexit crowd has been the idea that ordinary people aren’t sufficiently clued-up to make big political decisions. We have witnessed a “populist paean to ignorance,” says one observer. Apparently populist demagogues—like Nigel Farage, leader of the U.K. Independence Party (UKIP), and Boris Johnson, everyone’s favorite bumbling, toffish politician—preyed on the anxieties of the little people and made them vote for something bad and stupid. For these little people, “fear counts above reason; anger above evidence,” opined a writer for the Financial Times. A writer for The Guardian suggested that for anti-E.U. types, emotions “play a larger part than rationality.”

    This idea that the less well-educated sections of society are ripe for exploitation by emotion-stoking demagogues is not new. It’s the prejudice that has motored most elite campaigns against the expansion of democracy. The Chartists, Britain’s brilliant nineteenth-century warriors for universal male suffrage, encountered this nasty prejudice all the time. Their critics insisted that “the lower orders of the people” do not have a “ripened wisdom,” and therefore they are “more exposed than any other class in the community to be tainted by corruption, and converted to the vicious ends of faction.” Others said that “spouters at the meetings of the working classes” could easily exploit the “astonishing ignorance and credulity on the part of the hearers.”

That old Scottish joke about the sufferings of the damned who cry to the Almighty: “Lord, Lord, we didna ken.” After which the Lord looks down in his infinite mercy and says, “Well, ye ken the noo.” There must be some reason why Brexit has shocked so many people. It’s becoming clear that Brexit is one of those events, like the decision of the Hungarian Communists to let East Germans escape to the West via their country in 1989, that tell us our world is changing in important ways. Hungary’s cutting of the wires on the border was only a modest liberal gesture in itself, but it signified the end of Communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall only months later. What does the shock of Brexit signify?

  143. Yoda says:

    In this way, Merkel’s grand progressive-humanitarian gesture has backfired badly — rekindling and potentially intensifying the very nationalistic solidarity that progressives once hoped the EU would dissolve or erase.

    If history is moving inexorably toward humanitarian universalism, then giving it a sharp shove forward every now and then might be necessary and even admirable. And it certainly won’t meet any significant resistance. It will merely hasten the inevitable.

    But what if progressivism isn’t inevitable at all? What if people will always be inclined by nature to love their own — themselves, their families, their neighbors, members of their churches, their fellow citizens, their country — more than they love the placeless abstraction of “humanity”? In that case, the act of ignoring or even denigrating this love will have the effect of provoking its defensive wrath and ultimately making it stronger.

    It makes perfect sense to be surprised, saddened, and concerned by the outcome of the Brexit vote. But shock? Fury? Disgust? Despair? That’s what a person feels when he discovers that his most dearly held fundamental beliefs have led him astray

    Hell hath no fury like an establishment spurned. If you didn’t know this already, you certainly know it now, following the British people’s vote for a “Brexit.” A whopping 17.5 million of us voted last week to cut our nation’s ties with the European Union (E.U.), against 16 million who voted to stay. And we did so against the advice of most of the political class, media “experts,” the Brussels bureaucracy, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), President Barack Obama, and virtually every other Western leader. Most shockingly of all—against the advice of celebs—not even Benedict Cumberbatch’s earnest, crumpled face could make us want to stay. We defied them all. We rejected every E.U.-loving overture from the great and good and well-educated. And boy, are they mad.

    In the three days since this modern-day peasants’ revolt—the poor and working-class voted for a Brexit in far large numbers than the well-to-do and well-connected—the political and media elites have rained damnation upon the little people. Their language has crossed the line from irritated to full-on misanthropic. They’re calling into question the ability of ordinary people to rationally weigh up hefty political matters, and are even suggesting the referendum result be overturned in the name of the “national interest.”

    David Lammy, a member of Parliament (MP) representing the Labour Party, has been most explicit. He says we must “stop this madness” and “bring this nightmare to an end.” The nightmare he’s talking about is people voting for things he doesn’t agree with. He says the people’s will must now be overridden by a “vote in Parliament.” It’s terrifying that an elected MP doesn’t seem to know how democracy works

    I am a confused bear. Attempting to overcome the express will of the people would be tyranny, wouldn’t it? If so, how can anyone be in favor of it?

    Plans for ‘a closer European Union’ have been branded an attempt to create a ‘European superstate’.

    Germany’s foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier and his French counterpart Jean-Marc Ayrault today presented a proposal for closer EU integration based on three key areas – internal and external security, the migrant crisis, and economic cooperation

    It sounds as if Britain escaped by the hair of its chinny-chin-chin.
    I am glad the poles leaked this. I hope they bail next.

    Just passing by quickly this morning and wanted to share this one (hope it hasn’t already been done)
    Looks like, in addition to the one-currency-for-all mandate in the works, the EU is about to launch “ecodesign” restrictions on small household appliances.

    “”First they came for my toilet, mandating only 1.6 gallons per flush, and I did not speak out, because I could flush twice. . .

    Then they came for my shower head, but I did not speak out, because I could just run the water longer. . .

    Then they came for my light bulbs, but I did not speak out, because I have a whole basement full of the good old incandescent ones. . .

    Then they came for my toaster, but I did not speak out, because I am on a low-carb diet. . .

    Then they came for my gun, and . . . Just wait till they try that! To quote a great political philosopher, “Go ahead—make my day!”

    If anyone needs another confirmation that the European Union is fundamentally the most anti-democratic entity currently in existence, then the following statement by European Parliament Martin Schultz should put all confusion to rest.

    Schulz: “The British have violated the rules. It is not the EU philosophy that the crowd can decide its fate”.



  156. Yoda says:

    The elites who forged the union – a sprawling labor and consumer market of more than 500 million – have for decades pursued an agenda of deepening integration. French bakers, German bankers and Italian restaurateurs would find themselves beholden to Brussels – the administrative capital now viewed with the same amount of voter sympathy in the towns and villages of Europe as Washington in the American heartland



  157. Yoda says:

    absolutely delicious to watch the American media melt down since last week’s Brexit vote. Nothing terrifies liberal elitists more than an aware and energized electorate. The MSM fears the rise of a voting class that doesn’t march to its orders, and they fear this Brexit stuff will spread.

    At least they’re being honest about the end game now, whether intentionally or unintentionally.

    While the original article headline used the less offensive “shoulddn’t be decided by referendum,” the Post’s tweet was a lot more forthcoming:

    Brexit is a reminder some things just shouldn’t be decided by the people



  158. Yoda says:

    Journalism Majors have lowest incoming test scores they do,

    CNN’s Fareed Zakaria spoke with Brian Stelter on Reliable Sources today about whether the media being too “elite” was a problem in how it missed the Brexit outcome so badly.

    Zakaria acknowledged that journalists tend to be “better-educated,’ “comfortable with diversity,” more liberal, and “probably less sensitive to the concerns” of average Britons who supported the Brexit.



  159. Yoda says:

    Popular democratic revolutions are all the rage, until they aren’t.

    Remember the (inherently) progressive Establishment’s glee around the globe at the prospect of the Arab Spring?

    Contrast its favorable reaction to the “democratic” jihadist takeover of the Middle East with the chaos and cringing that has ensued in the wake of Brexit.

    What is clear is that regardless of the substantive impact of Great Britain’s referendum, its symbolic effect has been extraordinary.

    Irrespective of #Leave’s implications on economics, immigration and national security, #Brexit is a direct rebuke to the bipartisan Establishment’s most cherished values and principles, and an indictment of its rule.



  160. Yoda says:

    .”Elites matter in a democracy,” Sullivan argued, because they are the “critical ingredient to save democracy from itself.”

    I would argue that voters are the critical ingredient to save elites from themselves, but Sullivan sees it the other way, and has Plato on his side. Though some of his analysis seems based on a misread of ancient history (see here for an amusing exploration of the topic), he’s right about Plato, the source of a lot of these “the ancients warned us about democracy” memes. He just left out the part where Plato, at least when it came to politics, was kind of a jerk.

    Were I British, I’d probably have voted to Remain. But it’s not hard to understand being pissed off at being subject to unaccountable bureaucrats in Brussels. Nor is it hard to imagine the post-Brexit backlash confirming every suspicion you might have about the people who run the EU.

    Imagine having pundits and professors suggest you should have your voting rights curtailed because you voted Leave. Now imagine these same people are calling voters like you “children,” and castigating you for being insufficiently appreciative of, say, the joys of submitting to a European Supreme Court that claims primacy over the Magna Carta and the Bill of Rights.

    Between June 24 and 26, 88 percent (7 out of 8 programs) on the broadcast evening news shows touted UK voter “second thoughts,” and repeatedly brought up a manipulated petition for another referendum.

    Ultimately, Vladimir Putin behaved in a more statesmanlike manner than President Obama did in this referendum campaign,” Farage said. “Obama came to Britain and I think behaved disgracefully, telling us we’d be in the back of the queue, … treating us, America’s strongest, oldest ally, in this most extraordinary way.”

    By comparison, Putin “maintained his silence throughout the whole campaign,” he told Regan.
