Johnson softening in his bid to be elected prime minister?Charles Wilson emails:
So, the leave campaign was saying, "Let’s walk way from Europe and just sign a free trade deal and go global." Today Johnson is saying, "Let’s not walk away from Europe." He’s implied they have to sign a single-market deal with Europe that would keep them within most of the European Union’s regulations. So I think he’s looking like the favorite.
Britain First!...and mebbe lastRW note:
I'm already losing enthusiasm here. The first speeches of the British Politicos were not encouraging. The Taxes and Regulations are Pre-Owned by the Leaders. If Farage is more of a Populist than a Free Market Leader, then Brexit was merely to claim British Rule from Euro-Rule with the spoils going to whomever stands in the front of the line..
Meanwhile, predictably, the Moloch Leviathan People are already promoting the New! Improved! Fascist State.
I really don't get excited about coups, revolutions and exits until we are able to see what they are replaced with.
I wrote on Friday:
Backroom globalism is now out in Britain, but will it be replaced with greater free trade or greater protectionism?Until the masses gain a fundamental appreciation of liberty most coups, revolutions and exits will be disappointing if not downright dangerous.What hath this day deserved ? what hath it done,
That it in golden letters should be set
