Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Quote:
Britain has always been a nation with a global outlook.


I'm not sure how Phos would be contradicting himself to say that removing ourself from a Euro-centric world view and opening ourselves up to a global world view (with almost every other continental block expanding more rapidly than the EU in terms of economy - dynamic, eh!) is a good thing.


Can you explain?
Boris et al took an enormous dump on society and didn't have the decency to flush. Consequences don't apply to some, they think. We'll see but if there's an increase in the divide between the haves and have-nots there better be explanations. We were warned. If you damage society and the most vulnerable in the name of economic 'neo-liberation' or the urges of the Ego there will be consequences. See Tottenham, Liverpool, Bristol in the '80s.

Is history always doomed to repeat?

Any Leaver care to offer a cost benefit analysis? I see ridiculous projections of the cost of all this untethering, for lawmakers and society. Was that considered?

Cracking drama in Westminster, meanwhile zero hours contracts and no money left in council coffers makes the daily grind for tens of millions of Brits ever harder.

Games for some, breaking point in a real sense for many. Most are angry at the bleakness of austerity, not the vague impositions of the EU or some fella speaking Romanian. This campaign rode on the resentment of the poor but refuses to help them. Everything returns to the mean and posturing politicians would be wise to remember.

Phosli likes the sound of his own typing, he's alright.
