Britain Is Not Going to Leave The EU Anytime Soon

Gilad Atzmon, Tlaxcala, 30.06.2016.

the Brexit referendum, Britain is not leaving the European Union in
the foreseeable future. No one in Britain has expressed a desire to
issue Article 50 and officially launch withdrawal from the EU.

In addition to the complex questions regarding the legal effects of
the referendum and the added complications posed by a possible Scottish
secession, it has become clear that the people who led the leave
campaign were astonished by their victory. They clearly do not know how
to rid themselves of the spoils of their achievement. In fact, the
Brexiters and pretty much everyone else in Britain are relieved by
Cameron’s decision to buy Britain three months of calm. The assumption
is that this will provide sufficient time for the entire nation to
search google and find out what the term EU stands for.

It is apparent that the leading Tory Brexiters: Michael Gove, Liam
Fox and Boris Johnson share the ambition to become the next British
prime minister. However if you expect Gove or Fox to formulate a
coherent EU exit strategy you are either optimistic or naive. These
corrupted politicians who are among the most devoted servants of the
foreign lobby CFI (Conservative Friends Of Israel), are oddly quiet
about Brexit. They behave as if it never happened. It isn’t modesty
that keeps them silent.

Unlike Gove and Fox, Boris Johnson the Tory politician who led the
call to leave the EU, seems to have switched sides. The man is clearly
baffled by his unwanted victory. “52-48 result was not entirely
overwhelming,” he told the BBC.

In a post referendum article in The Telegraph Johnson
wrote,  “I cannot stress too much that Britain is part of Europe, and
always will be. There will still be intense and intensifying European
cooperation and partnership in a huge number of fields: the arts, the
sciences, the universities, and on improving the environment. EU
citizens living in this country will have their rights fully protected,
and the same goes for British citizens living in the EU.” I can’t
remember Corbyn or PM Cameron describing Britain’s relationship with
Europe in such glowing terms.

If anyone is worried about any significant consequences ahead,
Johnson provides complete reassurance. “British people will still be
able to go and work in the EU; to live; to travel; to study; to buy
homes and to settle down. …there will continue to be free trade, and
access to the single market. Britain is and always will be a great
European power, offering top-table opinions and giving leadership on
everything from foreign policy to defence to counter-terrorism and
intelligence-sharing – all the things we need to do together to make
our world safer.”

So where is the change or what is left of the call to leave? “The
only change – and it will not come in any great rush – is that the UK
will extricate itself from the EU’s extraordinary and opaque system of

Johnson is basically telling us that Brexit’s only consequence will
be to resolve a few minor disputes with Brussels regarding immigration.
“The Government will be able to take back democratic control of
immigration policy, with a balanced and humane points-based system to
suit the needs of business and industry.” It seems that it took only
one day and Cameron’s resignation for Boris Johnson to transform into a
remain enthusiast.

This is no surprise. The Brexit referendum was an ugly opportunistic
political exercise. Its Tory advocates are amongst the most horrid
neocons within the European political theatre. Still the results of the
referendum are meaningful. If you leave out London, Scotland and
Northern Ireland you find that the vast majority of Brits are
expressing dissatisfaction. These Brits are tired of politicians
controlled by party politics and global banking and they want to see a
prospect of a real future. The people who voted against the EU voted
against the type of global capitalism that sustains the political
careers of Boris Johnson, Liam Fox, Michale Gove, David Cameron and also
Jeremy Corbyn and his treacherous Labour Party.

Britain is not leaving the EU anytime soon. No one within the
British political arena can implement such a maneuver.  But the Brits
have sent a clear message to their politicians. And this anger is not
going to just fade away.
