UK is severing itself from the rest of Europe – whatever that means. And the severing step could take over two years.
Why? Immigration. Pundits and the data supposedly show, immigration has been a net positive for UK. Given triumph of the leave campaign, one has to dig deeper into the numbers.
Though it is a net positive in aggregate, for those times it was negative, who was disproportionally impacted? One can’t just ignore the over 17million folks who voted to go; to not be part of Europe.
Boris Johnson, one is the folks who spearheaded the leave campaign [along with the racist elements in UKIP], and “student” of churchill, might have skipped that cornerstone of ideas proposed by the legendary PM.
Common wisdom is pretty dier of the result of this vote: recession, breakup of the U.K., even of the EU.
Hope a good dose of humility is administered to the elites, and start listening to the people a little more, and lead!
