Default One good thing about the Brexit

The Brits have taken hold of the Wanker torch from the USA and at least for a while can claim to be the stupidest people on the planet One good thing about this brilliant decision is that with the pound dropping like **** out of elephants arse the expensive Sprinter camping accessories only available from Britain have just become way more affordable. Enjoy your unemployment and economic ice age and kiss Scotland and Northern Ireland goodbye you wankers.....

Even though my investments took a temporary hit I am happy for one of our best allies. It will be tough but as long as they keep making stupid (according to you) moves they will prosper in the long run but what do I know I'm just a stupid American.

Ponder:

Most of the world lives 'perfectly' well outside of the EU.

Britain has its own currency and its own central bank.

What's the big deal economically?

But it appears there are a lot of hoping chicken little's running around!

Default Re: One good thing about the Brexit

This is the result of political brinkmanship.
Before the last election an upstart called Nigel Farange and the UKIP put forward a manifesto based upon Brexit. This gained some popular traction with voters and not to be outdone Cameron and the Conservatives put forward equal manifesto statement which contained an intention to call a referendum should they be elected.

Elected they were and Cameron was on the hook to call for the Brexit referendum. He spent last year, and the run up to the vote trying to convince the population to "stay vote". He even made some a somewhat hollow agreement with the mandarins in Brussels for a better deal for Britain but it was a bit of a fizzle. The British public are more astute than that.

So what now!
Well I for one voted to join the Common Market a it was always known in 1975 after a referendum. That was a good idea to expand trade with the rest of Europe. What I didn't sign up for was a political union to for a quasi Federal Europe run by the Germans with the French on their coat tails!
Fast forward the writing was on the wall by feckless British Conservative politicians agreeing to the Maastrict Treaty. Really it was only a matter of time before there would be a peasants revolt! AND OUT !

As I see it 40 years have gone by! Britain was an integral part of the EU!
I see some foreboding signs and I for one am glad I now live here!
Moral!
Be careful of what you wish for even in jest or misguided actions to save face --it might just happen & that includes Mr Cameron and half the Tory Party!

Russia gets no benefits at all. It was a hope, that Russia will finally get rid of the deeply corrupt failed state of Ukraine, but now it is obviously won't happen and somebody will have to feed those 35 millions of hungry nazy.

It Winston Churchill, active in both World Wars with 75M deaths, who talked about United States of Europe as means to prevent wars in Europe. With the exception of Yugoslavia EU was free of war since 1945. We tend to forget history, it was a long time ago.

The benefit for Russia is a likely potential for a quicker lifting of sanctions with EU being freer from US pressure. UK was the key vehicle for US coercing agenda on EU. There is a growing dissent in EU on economic sanctions against Russia as it was recently stated by the German FM Frank-Walter Steinmeier in St. Petersburg Economic Summit. Not only Russia is loosing due to sanctions, EU does as well.
