Because the UK did oh so poorly before joining the EU?
These doom and gloom cries are nothing but Monday morning histrionics from eager leftists that hate freedom, and care not one iota about “sound economic” endeavors when it comes to welfare and other government transfers.
Bloated, unsustainable welfare states? Whew Lad, it’s a “human right”, we shall do it! Economics and basic math be DAMNED!
Brexit? Whew Lad, that’s not the most sound economic choice, let me provide all this data I ignore in every other facet of my day to day life.
Yes. Because childish reactions to hurt feelings will trump greed…
Until we stop funding NATO… It’s all moot.
End of the day, this was a huge slap in the face to leftist and globalists the world over. All this crying about a State leaving a union that is currently going down in flames anyway is sour grapes from people that don’t think “others” should have a say in their endeavors.
Whine and cry all you want. The sky isn’t falling, and both the UK and US will be just fine without the UK prostrating to Brussels.
