Brexit Will Happen, Here Is Why, Why No Big Deal

I used to say that Brexit will not happen, because it was racist in essence. Yet Brexit’s true motivation was that British and world plutocrats wanted to escape the EU law which says that, within three months, egregious tax evasion by EU citizens, within the EU, will be illegal… so the UK will exit 2 months exactly before that deadline.

Bexause exit it will: now things have changed. An article claimed “Boris Johnson Is in Trouble With Brexit. Many Voters Don’t Mind.” Here is my comment, a New York Times “pick”

Don’t underestimate Boris Johnson. He likes being PM too much. There will be Brexit. With an accord. That will consist in putting much of the EU/UK border in the middle of the Irish sea. No more backstop. Parliament will have to vote for it, under the threat of annihilation.

Considering Boris’ popularity and the British First-By-The-Post voting system, Boris I should get a majority after elections, because he is insured of 50% of the electorate, roughly…

Another point in favor of Brexit is that Macron (who joked around with Boris, who put his shoe on the French Elysee palace furniture, more or less at the suggestion of the french president…) also wants the UK out by October 31 (preferably with a deal, and J-C Juncker is supposed to get it) The Franco-British relationship is too important and close to not do what the British PM wants, especially when the French president wants it too…

Well, actually, it was a joke… Mr Macron joked with Mr Johnson and telling him the table could be used as a footstool… inciting him to make a fool of himself..

So here we are: Brexit started as a plutocratic ploy for the wealthiest to escape the egalitarianism of the EU (equality is not just in the French Constitution, but also in the Charter of Human Rights of the United Nations, both enshrined by the EU). To rally popular enthusiasm in the abysmal project of sparing taxes for the wealthiest, the usual tribal call, in other words, racism, was used:’We have to get out of the EU because of immigration of dirty Europeans inside the UK’ (in truth most immigrants to Britain didn’t come from the EU).

Enter Mister Johnson: he decided to push for Brexit after long hesitating: perfectly French bilingual, Boris, brought up in Brussels, knows very well Britain is in Europe, and can’t really get out, but he also knew Brexit offered a plausible ploy for him to become PM. So here he is: PM at last!

Boris’ plan is obviously to formally exit the EU without really exiting (because that can’t be done… but something like Switzerland’s arrangement with the EU can be done).

Boris showed this clearly by going to visit a thermonuclear reactor, MAST, saying Britain was going to sell such wonderful machines all around the world, thanks to scientists coming from all around the world from immigration reform (in other words, more of what Brexit was supposed to cure!)… MAST is actually financed by EURATOM, which is part of the EU, which the UK is supposed to Brexit… That may sound like colossal hypocrisy, but it’s a ploy: Boris will turn around and say the UK is European a la carte… Europe is good, when it finances the likes of MAST (compare with Switzerland getting EU financing for the EU Brain Project…)

Meanwhile Boris doesn’t have to speak about all this money the UK owes to the EU.

And what does Macron gets if Brexit happens forthwith? Simply to succeed, thanks to Boris, where Napoleon failed: unite continental Europe against Britain…

What is there not to like?

Seriously, Brexit may be good by bringing in some welcome competition… For most of the last millennium, the world’s most important competition was between France and England [1] (the English monarch renounced his claim to the French throne in 1815… So 1337 CE to 1815 CE; before that there was the struggle between Plantagenet,  king of France, Aquitania and its Eleanor, etc…)

After that exit with a provisional deal, the real treaty will have to be worked on… It will probably end with some other referendum…

Curious world ruled by men putting their shoes on tables, and joking about it, while we are supposed to call this democracy. Tyrants can spit in the soup, and the common folks are only too happy to have the honor of eating it.

[1] For a tiny example: steam power. Denis Papin, soon a Protestant refugee from France, student of physicist Huygens (financed by Louis XIV!), taught steam power at the highest level in England… And the Brits stole his (and Huygens) steam invention (see Watt for the unit of power… It should be the Papin…)

Another example is “Newtonian” mechanics, which was pretty much an Franco-Italo-English show (from Buridan to Laplace… from 1350 CE to 1800s)

One Response to “Brexit Will Happen, Here Is Why, Why No Big Deal”

  1. Patrice Ayme Says:

    The Brexit decision was illegally taken. In the first referendum on joining the European Community, more than four decades ago, the UK Parliament first passed a law making that referendum the law. The same was done for Brexit, RETROACTIVELY (after the Brexit vote, which was supposed to be only “consultative”). Add to this that the only anti-European politician against joining Europe more than four decades ago was… Jeremy Corbyn, and you have a complete mess.

    An apparent solution would be for the UK Parliament to organize another referendum, this time with the power of law, in advance. However, Boris the PM could short-circuit that, by calling for elections (which he would win, as Corbyn is sitting on a fence).

    The bottom line is that quitting the EU made no sense for Britain whatsoever. It’s like leaving one’s neighborhood… while staying in it (because the French coast can be seen from Britain, etc.).

    A (fake) idea has been that if Switzerland has not join the EU for democratic reasons, so it should be with the UK. However, each Swiss Canton has its own written constitution, and Switzerland was a Confederation of independent states until 1798. The Constitution passed by referendum in 1999 clarified this. Important adjustments to the EU constitution which the EU should adopt (because they would make the EU more democratic) are in my opinion necessary to incorporate Switzerland. But this is not the case with the UK, because the UK is not as democratic as Switzerland.
