Divorce proceedings begin within 24 hours.
Britain may soon be Britain again. Brexit continues to go forward despite the efforts of members of the House of Lords and from people like former prime minister Tony Blair. Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty may soon, and finally be triggered, thereby officially beginning the divorce of the UK from the European Union.
It will be an important moment – and it does look like it will happen – for all those who fight ever expanding bureaucracy.

This is the Blair/Clinton/Bush crowd for you. Fight the will of the people. Do the wrong thing with a smile and then with serious earnestness. Talk about “democracy.” Then drop some bombs. (Sometimes.)
Britons? They don’t pay as well.
France, The Netherlands, and Italy all are seriously contemplating leaving the European Union. What began in earnest in 2016 is flowing right into the new year.
The predictions by the “remain” camp prior to the Brexit vote were dire. A “leave” vote would trigger a recession in the UK if not the world. Companies would pack up and leave Britain for the EU en masse. Life as Britons knew it would end.
In a sense the fear mongers were right. Life did change for Britons, but for the better.
I wonder why the economy would react positively to the prospect of being cut loose of the crony monster in Brussels?

He added: “I could’ve held one (a referendum) in 2005 and lost one. When we thought we were going to have to hold a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty, I thought that was a very, very open question as to whether we were going to win or not.
“What it shows you [is] that if you put this decision to people like this in a referendum, I think at any point in time in the last 30 years you could have got that result.”
Gotta counter the cronies with numbers and unrelenting tenacity. It’s the only way to beat them back.
The anti-Brexit, pro-crony, pro-EU forces weren’t going to just give up. The banks want to stay in the EU and historically the banks have gotten what they want. There are similar parallels in this country.
Love that the anti-Brexit people are all concerned about British law now.
