Brexit feels like the springtime of the peoples

SHARE
Brexit feels like the springtime of the peoples, as they called the 1848 revolutions. Peter Oborne said it reminds him of the Arab Spring. He meant that in a good way.

It occurs to me that all the 1848 revolutions failed and the Arab Spring led to many wars. Brexit will however be a success. Although papers like the Economist and the Financial Times will try to ensure its failure, for purely ideological reasons (both papers are strongly pro-EU and strongly internationalist) and have quite a  lot or power to do so.
