George Monbiot summed it up well today.
Brexit was a step forward in the interests of those who use Britain, and its off shore tax havens, to squirrel away their ill gotten gains.
Put another way it was a measure taken by the world’s biggest thieves and crooks, to bolster their defences against the taxman, and to strengthen their hand against all those who do pay tax.
You may have voted Brexit for several reasons:
- For sovereignty.
- Scepticism about the efficiency of the European Union.
- A reluctance to want to put your eggs in the European basket.
- To protect your income from immigrants who are willing to work for less or because your don’t like people who are not like you.
But the principal power behind the movement, which you added your force too, was provided by people, whose principal interest lies in alienating, impoverishing and then exploiting you.
A working class vote for Brexit = a turkey voting for Christmas.
Gobble. Gobble. £350 million pounds a week.
Gobble. Gobble. Turkey everywhere.
Gobble. Gobble. Turkeys everywhere.
