Brexit “On” or “Off”

Written by: James McPherson

One of the first major blows to the first ever continental trade union, the European Union (EU) is Britain’s decision to leave the alliance on June 23rd, 2016. The EU originally was a proposition for a continent severally devastated by World War II. Forming a trade union for the purposes of making Europe’s raw materials and goods competitive on the international stage. The initial idea was to give each nation that joined an edge to negotiate higher prices for goods and raw materials. By the 1970” s, the true face of what the EU really is, emerges. It completely changes from an economic trade union; to an economic, political, military alliance; striping away membering states individual sovereignty into a bureaucratic corporate nightmare. A trade union and an alliance are two completely different beast.

A trade union- (an organized association of workers in a trade, group of trades, or profession, formed to protect and further their rights and interests; a labor union.)

An alliance- (1a: the state of being allied: the action of allying nations in close alliance 1b: a bond or connection between families, states, parties, or individuals a closer alliance between government and industry. 2: an association to further the common interests of the members specifically: a confederation of nations by treaty 3: union by relationship in qualities: 4: a treaty of alliance.)

Nearly 6 years later and Britain is still deeply snared in the living debacle of Brexit. In what is turning out to be more like a repetitive raping of the British people for choosing the right to self-govern. The strategy seems to have morphed into a continually staling and maligning Britain at every turn. While propaganda is pumped into the country in every form to change the “vote”.
