Brexit Wins As The UK Votes To Leave EU In Historic Referendum

In my opinion Brexit would have never come to pass if the British and European lawmakers had not pursued austerity politics in the first place. Why did the neoliberal ideologists not see the writing on the wall in 2009? Spain, Portugal and Greece were lying in tatters economically and no matter how many social programs were cut while taxes were increased, there wasn’t any way the average worker was going to be able to provide for their families and now these same neoliberal ideologists are going after worker’s protections and benefits. These supposed experts are grinding the middle class into the dirt, so why are they shocked by the outcome of the British referendum? I don’t know what the future holds, but I know that the IMF has woken up to the detrimental effect that austerity economics has bestowed on Europe and Britain, maybe this outcome will change the minds of European and Britsh lawmakers, I hope so for the good of working people everywhere.

    I like that you’re not demonizing the “leave” people. Unfortunately, a lot of progressive people I know are doing just that.

    1. I don’t think they should be demonized, they have had it hard, I can empathize with them.
