If you read my blogs on the subject of Brexit, you would already know I am for Brexit. I met with Nigel Farage of UKIP, the instigator of Brexit, to discuss the economic impact on our financial systems way before the referendum.
I voted for leaving the Eurozone not just because the British voters demanded such an exit, but also because the world is best served by a higher degree of granularity of freedom, not a lesser degree that leads to a flat-earth of more totalitarian globalization, controlled by even fewer people, and a loss of sovereignty. We must instead maintain, value, and, better yet, improve the world’s innate pluralism.
Many people will consider the failure of the endorsement of the Brexit plan by Theresa May, a surprising reversal of Brexit. But the reality is most of the politicians who voted against Brexit were completely blindsided by the opinion of their constituents who wanted to leave the Eurozone in the first place. So, now, in voting overwhelmingly against May’s plan, the disconnected politicians whose career would increasingly be in danger if the people indeed got their wish, voted unsurprisingly against their demise.
The same happened to the Irish, Dutch, and the French who didn’t get their wishes heard when voting in referendums against the emerging Eurozone treaties and constitution before their politicians pushed it through regardless. Welcome to the revolving door that isn’t a democracy.
