A revolutionary moment in Britain


The support in the opinion polls for Britain leaving the E.U. (exactly 50-50 these days) is the nearest the British have come to a revolution since 1848 - and that includes the General Strike of 1926 and the strange revolutionary moment when Diana died. The people (half of them) are battling against the political parties, big business, the banks, the Americans, the Europeans and even the Archbishop of Canterbury. How interesting that the left these days (including Jeremy Corbyn) is always opposed to revolutions.

Donald Trump, of course, is a revolutionary too.

  1. Frankly, the miracle happened 40 years ago when the Brits - quite unexpectedly - voted massively to join the EU .... Now, a vote for leaving EU wouldn't be a surprise for me, as the British people would return to the so called "splendid isolation" they used to like so much in the '60s. Also, not a surprise would be how wrong the political game of Mr. Cameron will prove in case of a highly likely Brexit ... he really stepped on a rake this time, as an old Romanian saying says
