“ The EU, for all its many awful faults, has prevented a war in Europe for longer than ever before.”
And there was me thinking that was NATO. How many divisions does Berlaymont have?
Brexit happened because a critical mass of Brits were sold a “Common Market” that would of course not end up as some European political union, you silly person, you. Whereupon it eventually became a European Union. To which the UK was a net contributor.
The most in depth research into why people voted the way they did in the referendum shows that, contrary to claims it was “xenophobia” and “immigration” (the constant REMAIN losing side narrative), but rather the idea that UK laws should be made in the UK.
