Brexit

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.

Churchill is rolling in his grave. Wasn’t he who called for the United States 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!
