  • Polish ministers to visit UK after attacks on Poles in Harlow - BBC News Posted on: Sep 6th, 2016

    Brexiters stir hatred, then when idiots take action, it has nothing to with them. Jo Cox died, one Polish guy died - for a peaceful, law-abiding country, it certainly is getting its jingoists going. Three Polish ministers are set to make an urgent visit to the UK…

  • Boris Johnson the Counter-Revolutionary|ECFR Posted on: Aug 6th, 2016

    Johnson's behaviour is also called opportunism or a brazen face, as far as I remember. In other words, totally unprincipled, ready to jump on any bandwagon. I reckon that when a significant percentage of the population is permanently stoned, post-truth society is an…

  • John Lanchester · Brexit Blues|LRB Posted on: Jul 24th, 2016

    Why aren’t people more angry? The Brexit vote showed that plenty of them are. But perhaps it expressed that other feeling, the one of bewilderment, just as much. ‘Take back control’ is a cynical but extremely astute pitch to an electorate in that state of…

  • Europe's Generation Gap Posted on: Jul 10th, 2016

    We're seeing among the young animosity against the older ones for tilting the referendum towards the exit, without a corresponding awareness that, instead of relying on other voters to represent their interests, the young have to become politically active and start…

  • Unelected EU officials Posted on: Jul 5th, 2016

    Not all countries vote directly for their prime ministers or head of state. Who voted for the British head of state, the Queen? The EU commission is nominated by EU members' prime ministers, all duly elected by their respective voters and parliaments. Parliaments and…

    So Brexit it is. As we move forward in trying to figure out what Britain will look like under this new reality, I want to share a few… Source: A Note to My Friends Who Voted Leave — Extra Newsfeed —…

  • Article 50 process on Brexit faces legal challenge to ensure parliamentary involvement Posted on: Jul 4th, 2016

    From what we've seen so far, the EU reaction has been very measured: sorry to see you go, but go if must - and sooner rather than later. Which may have started worrying Brexiters, who probably thought that all of the EU - Commission and members, would panic and beg…

  • Brexit won - "now let's unite and work together" Posted on: Jul 1st, 2016

    Bexit won. Now is the time to unite and work together. Great idea. But a summary first. The Leave campaign lies unceasingly for months, ignores all warnings and insults all experts, then it wins by a narrow margin, which it was preparing to contest had the Remain…

  • I want my country back|New Statesman Posted on: Jun 30th, 2016

    As Tories prepare to elect a new prime minister - yet another one in a long sequence of candidates previously anointed by an unelected, self-appointed Australian-American foreign billionaire, whose discrete presence on the British political scene has gone totally…
