The Revolution Comes and So Do Consequences

The revolution has come in the United Kingdom; the peasants have shown the oligarchy; their betters, the borg as some call it, that they are the masters of their fate.  Take this Brussels, you faceless bureaucrats.  We could care less about your rules of employment, or tax policy, or god forbid requirements to allow the lesser classes; the Arabs, the southern Europeans, the Slaves into our pristine Anglo-Saxon sanctuary.  We are the masters of our own fate.

What you mean I can no longer travel to the Mediterranean and Italy without a passport?You mean I must have an international driver’s license to drive in Europe?  My car doesn’t meet the EU standards because the drive is on the right!  I must pay tariffs on the cheese brought from France?  Why didn’t somebody tell me?  My God, my bank is moving to Paris, my God what have I wrought?

The counterrevolution will come.  Under employment, declining wages, jobs disappearing to the continent.  Scotland leaving, Northern Ireland back to civil war, with Catholic wanting to remain with their Scottish cousins in the EU and the Protestants wanting to go with their British cousins. . .a reversal of fate.  The young fleeing to America, Australia, and the continent.  The hatred of immigrants further inflaming the cultural and sectarian divide.  Oh it will come and it will come with vengeances.  It will eat both its supporters and detractors Boris and David and all the OXBRIDGE coterie.

Today was the first day of the coming disaster.  As it was said by Sir Edward Gray after the funeral of Edward VII, “they buoys which have marked the channels of our world have drifted out to the ocean.”  Our world is about to undergo events that will make the First World War look tame.

God have mercy on our souls.

    So it is much better to surrender sovereignty regarding your national security, economic well-being, and social identity to some European elite in Brussels than it is to remain a free nation with political self-determination? Got it. That you couch all this in race and class-warfare terms is telling.

    Perhaps, being ruled from afar by people unconcerned with your rights or interests, and among whom you have scant representation or voice, is unpalatable to a freedom-loving people.

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them to another, and assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station of which the laws of nature and nature’s God entitle them…

    Or something.

    I thoroughly disagree. The greatest part– and some of the most prosperous eras– of the life of Great Britain, or the UK if you prefer, was spent outside the confines of a European union. The people of that island nation have simply rejected the cloying dominance of the continent’s technocrats, and congratulations to them! I see no reason why this should end in horror. When the EU was no more or less than a common market that made all the sense in the world. But when they dropped the self-evident truths of that structure and moved to a more federal state, well then the problems began. Remember, Britons have lived under all of these systems and have now rejected the one they found intolerable. Oh, and they won’t be the last, either.

    I think this is a great day for our cousins across the pond, and I wish them every success.

    BTW– I think you reversed the polarity of Northern Ireland.

    I did not, the Catholics voted to stay thus voting with Scotland; whereas the Protestants voted to leave voting with the U.K. and Wales. One would have expected Pasley and his ilk to vote with their Scottish brethren.
