“Brexit” Quotations – July 7th, 2016

Four observations on the “Brexit”…

“On the immediate matter of Brexit, the British people have rejected the arrogant rule of the EU superstate and the tyranny of its unelected courts, commissions and bureaucratic overlords… Smaller government – at least in geography – is being given another chance. And that’s a very good thing because more localized democracy everywhere and always is inimical to the rule of centralized financial elites.” – Davis Stockman, “Bravo Brexit!” – Stockman’s Corner, June 24th, 2016.

“Most of all it was a victory for the White working class of England over, not just Cameron, but their Labour Party overseers and a media establishment that has never bothered to hide its contempt. While Scotland, London and the main cities voted to remain, it was the ordinary Whites in the shires and Labour heartlands of England who turned out in massive numbers for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to say no. The final figure may look narrow but among the White working class in some areas it seems to have been a landslide, and, if so, it means that the apparent spell that the Labour Party had on the poorest areas is broken.” – Francis Carr Begbie, The Occidental Observer, “Britain says no” – June 24th, 2016.

“The EU has made things worse for most Europeans, not improved them. And when seen in that light, why should people agree to continue to be told what to do by those who’ve made them poorer? There’s no democratic model in which that remotely makes sense. There are only undemocratic models left….” – Mike Whitney, Counterpunch, “¡Basta Ya, Brussels! British voters reject EU corporate slavestate” – June 24th, 2016.

“So strong was the backlash to Obama’s blatant attempt to influence the Brexit vote – polls following his April visit to London showed the opposition to his remarks running at about 60 percent – that a reasonable case could be made he contributed to the outcome… Obama’s threatening remarks against Britain over Brexit seemed to have ignited a tempest… Upon leaving the EU, Obama said, Britain should not expect a new trade deal with the U.S., that it would be ‘in the back of the queue’… Obama’s use of the Briticism ‘queue’ for the word ‘line’ triggered widespread speculation that the President’s comments had, in fact, been written for him at 10 Downing Street.” – David A Patten, Newsmax – “US Media Ignores Obama’s Role in Brexit Disaster” June 24th, 2016.
