    NWO tool. He’s “optimistic” there will be a European technocratic dictatorship in the future and he’s not as “bearish” as Michael Petit. lol What a tool.

      As he says, “the EU is good at ‘muddle through’ and is likely to ‘Merkel through’ this as well.”

      Britain is one of the EU’s biggest trading partners, and vice versa. It is in neither side’s interest to destroy that.

      What Brexit does is call a halt to the EU’s united Europe overreach. It would be good for long-term sustainability of the EU if technocrats in Brussels are forced to pull their head in.

      Margaret Thatcher highlighted this in her Bruges speech in September 1988:

      “Mr. Chairman, you have invited me to speak on the subject of Britain and Europe. Perhaps I should congratulate you on your courage. If you believe some of the things said and written about my views on Europe, it must seem rather like inviting Genghis Khan to speak on the virtues of peaceful coexistence! …The European Community is one manifestation of that European identity, but it is not the only one. We must never forget that east of the Iron Curtain, peoples who once enjoyed a full share of European culture, freedom and identity have been cut off from their roots. We shall always look on Warsaw, Prague and Budapest as great European cities…To try to suppress nationhood and concentrate power at the centre of a European conglomerate would be highly damaging and would jeopardise the objectives we seek to achieve. Europe will be stronger precisely because it has France as France, Spain as Spain, Britain as Britain, each with its own customs, traditions and identity. It would be folly to try to fit them into some sort of identikit European personality…it is ironic that just when those countries such as the Soviet Union, which have tried to run everything from the centre, are learning that success depends on dispersing power and decisions away from the centre, there are some in the Community who seem to want to move in the opposite direction. We have not successfully rolled back the frontiers of the state in Britain, only to see them re-imposed at a European level with a European super-state exercising a new dominance from Brussels…”
