UK-s pole katastroofi

Kui veel brexiti saagast kirjutada, siis jutud olid tõesti sellised, et taevas kukub brittidele pähe, kui nad EL-st lahkumise poolt hääletavad. Meil tegid hirmutamiskampaaniat enne EL-iga liitumist Maris Lauri ja teised: investeeringud lakkavad meile tulemast, saabub suur majanduslangus jne. Selline taktika on üldlevinud, lisaks sellele nimetati Brexiti pooldajaid lollakateks rassistideks, James Galbraith nimetas neid simpeltonideks. Minu respekt Jamesi on kadunud peale Kreekat ja Brexitit. Ta on elitistlik vasakpoolne, kes ei erine palju Krugmanitest.

See peaks nüüd ka selge olema, et EL ei ole mingisugune majandusliit või majanduslik projekt, kus rahvusriikidel on majanduslikult kasulik olla. See on poliitiline projekt, katse luua Euroopa impeeriumi.

Mayday! Mayday! The skies were meant to fall in … what happened?

….Tourism is booming. Unemployment is falling or at least those claiming unemployment benefits. One investment bank put out a briefing last month with a Mayday! Mayday! warning that unemployment was about to rise dramatically. Who has been sacked for that piece of public misinformation. George Osborne, remember him, said in mid-June that British public finances were about to collapse and an immediate, emergency fiscal response would be needed. Days have passed – things are looking ok. Eurozone nations should take note! Ignore the neo-liberal scare mongering. Follow Britain’s lead in abandoning the ridiculous notion that there is something special about ‘Europe’. Eurozone nations should get out of the currency union as soon as possible.

In the weeks after the Brexit vote, the sore losers were in abundance – predicting the worst and even worse, accusing those who voted the sensible way (to exit) of being dumb, racist, or regretful, or all three things……
