As I get ready to head to the east coast for a couple of weeks, I'll be on the lookout for migrants sailing across the Atlantic. Before that, here's a quick thought I have on how the whole British EU thing came to being and went down:
- Exit leaders like Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage figured that having the referendum would be a good scare tactic to the rest of the pols. That it wouldn't pass but be close.
- Voters actually pass the referendum to leave the EU.
- The aforementioned leaders now realize that their scare tactic has become a reality and are now in an "Oh fuck, they bloody bought it! What the hell do we do now?"
If you look at the statements by these leaders you quickly realize what has happened there is basically the same thing that happened with the Republicans in their primary.
