    Thanks, Brits – Brexit has vaccinated Europe against populism

    Nailed it.

    So many on here betting Europe will fail with the rise of right wing populism. Reassuring to see not all are so stupid to believe in populism.


    Here we near the sublime: Brexit could amount simply to Britain losing its influence in Brussels, giving up its voice – basically, surrendering its sovereignty without benefiting from any shared sovereignty to limit the coming economic disaster. That’s what’s called political and diplomatic suicide, especially when you remember the unique position the UK had managed to carve itself out in the EU and its influence in Brussels.

    I agree, Britain will serve as an example to provide some important stability in the EU.

    That's why I'm supportive of Brexit. It's nice of the Brits to sacrifice themselves for the benefit of their EU partners. Talk shows in Germany are talking about a Brexit dividend as companies relocate from the UK to Germany.


    I'm alright Jack

      Brexit: 89% of Britons want dual citizenship after leaving EU, finds survey | The Independent

      Oh dear, the fact that 90% of Brits would like an escape route doesn't bode well for confidence of Britain being "a beacon".

          "Populism" isn't exclusively a phenomenon of the "right" y'know. Take Macron & Corbyn. If that ain't "populism" I'm a banana.

            Here we go, bit of negative press - media machine kicks in. We haven't even left.

            It's just EU trying to see hey look it's bad if you leave. Did anyone not expect them to do this.

            Lighten up.
