Brexit

Tally, ho!

As we’ve noted before, we at MPS do not comment much on international events, it’s not our wheelhouse and the few times we do, it blows up in our face.

So here we go!

Besides failing to remove that orange blot on our history, yesterday also was the day that the UK left the EU, and for those of us who think that the USA cornered the market in Stupid, well…

Anyway, no one knows what happens next, will the 4 kingdoms split (England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales) with some staying in the EU? It’s possible. There’s all the questions about the economy and trade that originally brought Brexit to Old Blighty that still need to be hammered out, so really yesterday was more deeply symbolic than earth-shattering. I didn’t look at the bidness news to see if the movers and shakers are panicked.

It’s going to be a rollercoaster for our friends over there, so have some tea and sympathy. PM Boris Johnson is their Trump, and one could argue that he wouldn’t be there if ours wasn’t here first.

    I have my suspicions that this whole debacle was created for the turmoil and upset it would cause, thereby instigating an atmosphere of hate, fear and uncertainty. Who benefitted? All you have to do is connect the dots, and see who made, or will make a financial killing on this, just like every other situation akin to it.
    What fools these mortals be.

      Brexit- it is solely intended to avoid the financial and anti tax avoidance schemes that are now being instituted in the EU in reaction to the Panama Papers. As such, it is both a cover up to massive criminality by the greasy wealthy fuckers who are a plague on us all and it is to allow GB to continue the financial fuckery that offshoring massive wealth while calling for austerity and crushing the social programs and those they serve.

    Ahem, as someone whose four grandparents came from Ireland, I would like to correct the record that the UK includes Northern Ireland (aka the Plantation of Ulster) but not the Republic of Ireland. That is all.

    Scotland wanted to stay in the E.U. so Brexit may rekindle the Scots’ desire for independence. Trump and Brexit. Putin can’t stop smiling.

    There’s just way too much dumb-fuckery involved in Brexit to try to make any statement other than an inchoate scream.

    Instead, here’s Borowitz on Boris Johnson’s dog https://bit.ly/38XGeNu
