Brexit is another indictment of rash populism jump started by xenophobic interests. My favorite were seeing the people who wanted Brexit but also wanting to keep the benefits of EU membership basically I want cake all day and I don’t want to be fat.

Day after the 2016 Brexit vote I posted on FB a note of concern about the implications of this decision. A Trumpster friend was very nonchalant — said that this would allow the British to make their own trade decisions. No wonder Boris and Donald are friends — and Trump supporting Americans were also in favor of the results of this vote. Nationalism has poisoned too many minds. Brexit vote certainly presaged the similar Trump vote. In both cases voters didn’t understand what they really were getting but they liked the pretty messages.
