The Social Europe site published an opinion by Simon Wren-Lewis on the current state of the UK’s brexit negotiations with the EU. In general, SWL’s article was a broadly social-democratic critique of what he regards as the Left’s case- ” Lexit “- for leaving the EU.
So far so good,after all just like every vote cast in the EU referendum was of equal value, so too, were we to extend the argument ,ought not one man’s opinion be of equal validity to everyone else’s opinion on any given issue? In practice,of course this is never the case, to believe that it could be is the height of naivety.
You see, the Simon Wren-Lewis article had as a footnote his official moniker ” Professor of Economics at Oxford University “. Of all the varied demographic groupings it was the AB social class alone amongst all of them that had a majority vote Remain in the EU referendum. And Remain metropolitan elitists being the seditionist nest of vipers that they invariably are, it doesn’t stop at the opinion,learned or otherwise of just one professor.
Today’s MSM has been assailed with the announcement of a list of demands delivered to our doltish Prime Minister by no less an august grouping than that representing the UK’s leading 10 universities. Their particular strategic line of assault against Brexit is centred on the supposed infringement of the copious Rights enjoyed by EU citizens sojourning in the UK who also happen to be working at universities.
And so it goes. The metastasizing Remain insurgency asserts that every conceivable sector of the economy in one shape or form or another is under dire immediate existential threat because of the looming brexit. Whether or not it even actually eventuates or not.
As for the democratic will of the UK’s sovereign electorate as expressed in a binding referendum agreed as such by parliament itself; that clearly counts for less than nothing.And in any event the 52% were misled,didn’t understand the question or did and perversely voted Leave because they are racist,insular cretins.
That would include me then?
