The UK was a member of the EU.

The UK voted yesterday, by popular referendum, to remain or not as a member of the EU.

Today the UK is not a member of the EU.


Yes, it's a very big deal. The EU, as originally envisioned, was an economic agreement between Euro nations that bound them together as a single economy. In theory this was an extraordinarily powerful economic tool in that the combined economies now became a single "nation" for negotiating trade outside the EU and also gave tariff free movement of goods within the EU member states. Passports and borders were subsumed by the EU and workers could travel and live freely in any EU member state without restriction. etc....etc....


Sounds great, right? What has happened over these years is that EU morphed (always the plan..) into a political monster whose goal was to subsume national identity and replace with a globalist view. While this disgusts most of the EU populations the economic benefit was to outweigh loss of identity. That's not how it shook out...

A few countries carried the weight of other countries in the EU that were essentially freeloaders. Greece and Spain come to mind....countries whose people worked 30 hours a week and drew a full pension at 45, Whose leaders spent like drunken sailors on social benefits. Countries who allowed savages to migrate, draw entitlements and then contribute little or nothing to society. That's what the EU morphed into and counties to morph....creation of a standing EU army, EU laws, etc..

There's a lesson here in America as we watch the EU disassemble. The fact that Obama was supportive of the EU should tell you everything you need to know.

There was a vote in the 70s to join something called the common market which was billed as a free trade agreement. This eventually morphed in to what the EU is today, it's been on the books for us to vote for years, last year David Cameron's Conservative party was elected with the mandate to hold an in/out referendum on our position in the EU to finally settle the matter.

Prior ro the vote, the PM went to Brussels to negotiate a deal for us to remain in which many feel wasn't acceptable and some liked

At least 52% of the people who voted find the political and economical direction to be at odds with them for a variety of reasons so we held a vote and the leavers won 52% to 48%. This caused the Prime Minister to then announce he is resigning as of October 2016 as he was the leading voice for the stay camp.

The Europeans are happy to see us leave, we're mostly happy to be leaving. We'll continue to be friends of course albeit less close than we have been,

Long term effects: Market problems which will probably settle, NI and Scotland seeking a leave referendum, EU fishing problems, millions of EU nationals in this country who have settled and may not neccessarily want to leave but not want to give up their citizenship either.

There's a fuck ton of other prelude shit but that's all I can be bothered to write.

The EU is dominated by 2 countries...France and Germany....51% of Britains are tired of being pushed around by France and Germany...

Our Constitution is what, 20 pages or so....the EU voted on a "Constitution" that was over 500 pages....and I think my little Ireland stepped for and killed it...

Not as rocky if they had stayed. I say it was an experiment in modern socialism based on a free economy. You know, kind of like what we are doing minus the states sharing their budgets. Or another good example of this is the state of NY. NY city cannot support itself financially, so they tax the shit out of the rest of the state to cover their ass.

I wouldn't give former big east football the credit of calling them Germany. The basketball schools (catholic 7) never saw a dime of the football money, and basketball was the real reason the big east was (and still is) a major conference.

The 30,000 foot view politically?

The EU was created by globalists. They sold everyone on the idea of less violence in Europe if everyone was in the same boat, shared one currency, and had easily crossable borders. They're pretty much "friends," so why not band together?

The EU grew from a couple agreements on paper to having its own President, central bank, and army

The Brexit is like Texas seceding from the Union peacefully. It means Britain (or Texas) has reclaimed the power that rightfully belongs in the state, not the Feds in Brussels.

This is so powerful because it opens the floodgates for other countries to leave the EU. Eventually the EU would have become powerful enough to take on the U.S. or whomever given enough time.

Overall it is more power to the people, and a huge upset to elites around the world

It just means that Britian is no longer legally required to implement policies from Brussels. They can review, implement, or deny any policy without being taking to court (which means Germany and some extent Netherlands and France).

In other words, Britian just voted themselves veto power over the EU. That's all it is. The danger though is voting in prime ministers and parliment who are pro EU and will not use veto powers, but blindly follow Brussels.

I suspect that the Dutch will get their veto power next. Without the Brits, most of the other countries will not like being dominate by Germans. The exception are the PIGS (Portugual, Italy, Greece, and Spain) who are EU welfare clients. I believe it was these welfare clients that pushed brexit into the winning column.

Wut?!

NYS raised $330,000,000 in UPK taxes not too long ago (1-2 years). Of that $330m, $300m is going directly to NYC for their UPK program leaving the whooping $30m to be spread for the rest of the state. NYCs metro is basically funded by NYS as a whole. Individual businesses 3+ counties away from NYC are paying a "commuter tax" DESPITE NOT EVEN GOING TO NYC to support NYC. NYC residents pay less then 1/3rd the property taxes vs comparable housing in any downstate county. NYC has something like 45% of the population of NYS, but only contribute (IIRC) 25% of the state funds.

NYS raised $330,000,000 in UPK taxes not too long ago (1-2 years). Of that $330m, $300m is going directly to NYC for their UPK program leaving the whooping $30m to be spread for the rest of the state. NYCs metro is basically funded by NYS as a whole. Individual businesses 3+ counties away from NYC are paying a "commuter tax" DESPITE NOT EVEN GOING TO NYC to support NYC. NYC residents pay less then 1/3rd the property taxes vs comparable housing in any downstate county. NYC has something like 45% of the population of NYS, but only contribute (IIRC) 25% of the state funds.


New York City’s share of state revenue
payments is around 45 percent, and it receives 40 percent of expenditures.
The Downstate Suburbs provide roughly 27 percent of
taxes and other revenues, nearly 10 percentage points more than
they receive in aid for education, health care, state payroll, and
other expenditures. By contrast, the Rest of State region provides
24 percent of the revenues and receives 35 percent of expenditures.
Not surprisingly, the Capital Region also shows a net gain,
with a gap of 3 percentage points between its share of revenues
and of expenditures

also, your property value skyrockets by being in a town with a train connecting to nyc, compared to a two horse town 20 minutes away with no train.

here's a little video on the EU.

The UK is leaving the EU, no idea which 'box' they will negotiate themselves into. However if they stay in the European Economic Area group, they'll have pretty much the same economic access.

Angela Merkel (de facto E.U leader) woke up with a very sore anus, courtesy of a U.K brutal and unexpected ass fuck.
