Gilad Atzmon on Brexit

The Jewish intellectual and musician, and iconoclast, has a perspective on Brexit that is worth reading.

Despite the Brexit referendum, Britain is not leaving the European Union in the foreseeable future. No one in Britain has expressed a desire to issue Article 50 and officially launch withdrawal from the EU. In addition to the complex questions regarding the legal effects of the referendum and the added complications posed by a possible Scottish secession, it has become clear that the people who led the leave campaign were astonished by their victory. They clearly do not know how to rid themselves of the spoils of their achievement. In fact, the Brexiters and pretty much everyone else in Britain are relieved by Cameron’s decision to buy Britain three months of calm. The assumption is that this will provide sufficient time for the entire nation to search google and find out what the term EU stands for.

It is apparent that the leading Tory Brexiters: Michael Gove, Liam Fox and Boris Johnson share the ambition to become the next British prime minister. However if you expect Gove or Fox to formulate a coherent EU exit strategy you are either optimistic or naive. These corrupted politicians who are among the most devoted servants of the foreign lobby CFI (Conservative Friends Of Israel), are oddly quiet about Brexit. They behave as if it never happened. It isn’t modesty that keeps them silent.

He is probably correct in his observation that the Brexit result will be ignored or buried under a mountain of paper and double talk. However, in doing so the (((elites))) will in effect be seriously undermining their own very shaky claims to legitimacy and the whole 'democratic' process. If voting is seen to be a frustrating exercise in irrelevancy, then why persist in the charade of parliamentary democracy? Increasing numbers have no faith in the present system, and future calls by the elites for loyalty, tolerance etc. will fall on deaf ears.
There won't be the feared "credibility gap" but a veritable chasm of disbelief between us and them. We are witnessing a similar development within the Church today.

Thanks, Anon. Let us both hope that more and more people will reject being manipulated, ignored and bullied, by both Church and State, and start to wake up.
