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

Hostile powers aim to create instability. They profit from it politically and financially, and it's a powerful strategic tool for buying time. Thus, influence two huge political votes to bring about the unexpected result. Once that result has become the 'accepted norm', shift the influence in the other direction to extend the chaos period. A 3yr old can do it to great effect.

I want to challenge that the outcome of both votes was unexpected.


US presidency: 2 weak, unfavoured candidates that both probably would have lost against any credible candidate. The result was a bit of a lottery.


Brexit: I don't think there has ever been an overwhelming support for the EU in GB - but I might be wrong there.
