Brexit — Yes, it is exiting. Good for them!!

brexitYesterday I predicted that Britain will vote to remain in the EU. I also said that it would be better for them to leave. I am thrilled that the popular vote proved me wrong. A little ray of sunshine in the general doom and gloom.

There’s too much news coverage of the decision. So let me point to two excellent voices that were arguing that Britain should and must leave. Watch these, not just for understanding a point of view but also how that point of view was expressed. These are object lessons in persuasion and oratory.

The shorter one first — Daniel Hannan, Member of the European Parliament. Yes, Hannan is an MEP and he argues that Britain must leave. I feel sorry for the person who has to make his/her opposing case after Hannan’s impassioned argument. It is part of the Spectator debate on “Should Britain Leave the EU?” held in April.

The other video is from a hero of mine, Pat Condell. This was recorded in May.

Pat Condell lists other videos related to Brexit at his “The Moment of Truth” page..

The issue of Brexit is a mix of politics and economics. It’s been fun and instructive for me. I hope you will take the time to enjoy the two videos.

  1. I think as media and elites continue to lie to people they end up believing their own lies. To begin with almost everyone assuming that Britain will vote for “Stay”. I think this was very much like how Indian media almost unanimously claimed that Modi cant win.

    This overconfidence was probably why they “allowed” the referendum in first place. The battle lines of freedom from now are pushed a bit back. People will have to put up a fight to demand a referendum in first place.
