What a joyous time for the U.K., the shackles of the treacherous and overly bureaucratic E.U. are finally being thrown off. After the communist Jeremy Corbyn led his Labour Party to a crushing and historic defeat a Brexit that has been wallowing and languishing for years finally happened just a few days ago. This blog post represents yet another case where I don’t need to add to much commentary but can link to others who explain the feelings of jubilation (or sadness) amongst the British and Europeans.
The Spectator – You can thank Remainers for the hardness of this Brexit
Above is an article by a man who opposed Brexit but has the self-awareness to realize that perhaps dragging it on for years and opposing the will of the British people might have some blowback.
sp!ked – A glorious victory for democracy
Indeed, a glorious victory for Britain.
The Spectator – The agony of Brexit – for us Germans
An article written by Ms. Stefanie Bolzen who bemoans the loss of the U.K. from the jackboot of Brussels bureaucrats. She seems to have a rather low opinion of many E.U. member states (“freeloaders” among other unflattering terms) and just can’t understand why the British might not want to participate anymore. Par for the course, the author calls the main opposition party Alternative für Deutschland a bunch of racists.
U.K. Daily Mail – Party like it’s January 31! Brits far and wide including in London, Boston, Warrington and Glasgow celebrate Brexit in style with festivals and pub crawls to mark history
The Daily Mail can be a very interesting news source and I’ll post some of the jubilant (and somber) photos below. Enjoy!
Of course, not everybody was happy with the outcome…
