Subject: RE: BS: Brexit #3: A futile gesture?
Can’t agree about the origins of anti-EU populism ,Jim C. Whatever about the leave/ remain options on offer in the UK ballot paper, this thing called Brexit is the package people are going to get if Johnson and Farage get their way .
Thatcherism originated in the US in the 70s with the Chicago School of Economics before Thatcher came to power in the UK . Similarly, Brexit,which was not offered as an option in the 2016 referendum, comes from powerful, vehemently anti-EU interests in the US working with co-thinkers in the UK to break up a competitor.
