The EU is a festering cesspool. But it’s a crystal spring compared with what the outers want to do – surrender Britain’s sovereignty to the United States
The country which has done rather well over the past couple of hundred years in improving the life of the average bubba on the street. Sure, there’s been bad stuff. Jim Crow wasn’t anything to boast about. But in general and on average the US has taken in tens of millions from Europe and other places and built a pretty decent society.
But the US is the enemy, eh? The very Devil itself for some reason. If it were the US that finally solved the problem of economic scarcity and thus ushered in the possibility of true communism then the British left would still be rejecting it.
Because, you know, America.
It’s an odd, odd, position to take.
And it’s one that I don’t really understand either. As I say, the US isn’t perfect. But then neither are any of the places over here. Why is it, this rejection of the place built, at least in part, upon Tom Paine?
