Brexit carries the day, G-d Save the Queen

"Never give in. Never, never, never, never—in nothing, great or small, large or petty—never give in, except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force. Never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.”
Winston S. Churchill

Gloom and doom will abound today, but the simple fact is, sovereignty trumps all. 

British Prime Minister David Cameron could never make an effective case to remain in the European Union based on British sovereignty. To paraphrase Milton, the British people answered the question; is it better to be a servant in heaven or a ruler of hell.


  1. The screaming, wailing and finger pointing of those who wanted to stay is deafening and vindictive. IT is like they can hardly wait to make those "horrible" Brits who voted to leave SUFFER. But there was a lot wrong with the EU; the way that the EU, controlled by German, lorded over Greece and Portugal was very telling. And forcing or trying to force all the EU countries to open their borders to unlimited migration from Muslim countries is suicidal. If they need so much labor, why not from countries like Spain that have huge unemployment or even employ some of their own? I guess that Europeans might as for better wages - but the price of importing untrained Muslim labor is going to be higher than any European should have to pay.

    So God Save The Queen

    1. I agree with you the screaming and wailing – and the suggestion that anyone who to makes decisions solely based on economics is politically mature and wise. Then there was the demonization and blatant discrimination on display against the working class and seniors – well, that was downright horrific and I wondered where it would all lead….

      It was almost like watching the Magna Carta be reborn, but this time, with a distinct element of farce – like watching those Champagne Socialists losing the vote of their constituents. Labour is in for a long dark tea time of the soul if they want to remain relevant politically.

      I work on a trading floor. The stress is immense right now. Everyone is scrambling to reach out to the so-called experts for analysis and insight for what comes next, what course to chart, but the irony of seeking out the same people who misled you in the first place is completely lost on everyone around me.
