    In the Spirit of Dysfunction,



    Europe is the creation of the Third World

    What will remain of the very idea of 'Europe' now that the UK opted to bid it farewell?



    In a famous passage in his now classic book, Wretched of the Earth (1961) Frantz Fanon wrote one of his most iconic phrases: "Europe is literally the creation of the Third World."

    Why would he say that and what could that phrase actually mean? What will have remained of the very idea of "Europe" that now even the UK has opted to bid it farewell? ...

    The UK may have committed 'an act of economic self-harm with global ramifications'

    British voters have voted to leave the European Union. One economists believes they're doing themselves more harm than good




    ... Economists continue to believe that this is a net negative for the UK economy at least in the near-term. And furthermore, they warn of ripple effects ...

    Learning from Britain’s unnecessary crisis

    By E.J. Dionne Jr. Opinion writer June 26 at 8:12 PM

    Elites are in trouble. High levels of immigration are destabilizing our democracies. Politicians who put their short-term political interests over their countries’ needs reap the whirlwind — for themselves but, more importantly, for their nations ...

    Brexit: Can we come to our senses?


    The reaction from the two main presidential candidates to the stunning news from the UK on its Brexit vote and the economic earthquake threatening to send us tumbling into another recession was revealing, albeit predictable. (The Post reported on the international shock waves that included a 600 point drop in the Dow: “The risk of another global recession escalated Friday after Britain’s stunning decision to leave the European Union plunged financial markets into free fall and tested the strength of the safeguards put in place since the last downturn seven years ago.”) ...

    Video: British Millennials have themselves to blame for what happened

    The polling data ahead of the vote shows that 19% of young people wouldn't vote or didn't know how they'd vote




    In a surprising decision, Britain voted on Thursday to leave the European Union in a vote of 52% “leave” versus 48% “remain.”

    The results show that 17.4 million people voted leave, while 16.1 million for remain. There was a 72% voter turnout.

    Perhaps the most outraged demographic—at least on social media— are the Millennials ...

    After Brexit vote, wave of racist and xenophobic threats reported across U.K.


    In the wake of Britain’s historic Brexit vote to leave the European Union last week, U.K. police have been receiving increased reports of xenophobic and racist threats made against immigrants across the country — particularly Polish people, local officials said.

    In Hammersmith, West London, the entrance building that houses the Polish Social and Cultural Association was defaced by graffiti that read, “Go home.” According to the Evening Standard, police are investigating it as a “racially motivated” crime ...

    Britain just did the world a huge favor


    ... Brexit, in fact, may turn out to be the best thing that ever happened to free trade. It will be the first case study in modern history of what happens when a whole country bails out of the global establishment. And while it might feel good for a moment or two, it’s hard to imagine the Brexit cheers will persist as prosperity seeps out of the UK ...

    Video: Here's why Brexit might not be so bad for… Burberry
    Limited exposure to the British pound helps Burberry


    [​IMG]

    ... But while Brexit is “a negative for the sector overall,” according to a new note from RBC Europe Limited, it is merely “mixed” for Burberry Group ...

    “The real beneficiary of a weakening GBP should be Burberry,” says analyst Rogerio Fujimori in the note. “Currency fluctuations tend to shift travel flows and luxury purchases around the globe: A weakening GBP may shift overseas tourist flows to the UK, which would benefit Burberry Group.” You may have seen this thesis already in other contexts—that while the plummeting pound is bad for Brits, it’s nice for foreigners who’d like to visit England. It means your trip to London will be a lot cheaper. So Burberry’s eventual higher costs may be offset by American tourists buying up Burberry threads in England ...

    Brexit: Britain’s welcome revival of nationhood

    [​IMG]
    By George F. Will Opinion writer June 24


    The “leave” campaign won the referendum on withdrawing Britain from the European Union because the arguments on which the “remain” side relied made leave’s case. The remain campaign began with a sham, was monomaniacal with its Project Fear and ended in governmental thuggishness ...
