WASHINGTON, June 21, 2016 — Unlike the U.S., the UK actually hosts real political debates on real political issues, such as the one held Tuesday at Wembly Stadium.
In addition to monetary, employment and trade arguments, the waves of unwanted immigration flooding into the Eurozone from the Islamic and often hostile Middle East have become a lightning rod in discussions of this white-hot issue, not only in the UK but in a number of additional, disgruntled countries in the Erozone. A similar problem exists in the U.S., as the Obama Administration continues to flagrantly ignore the disastrous effects of completely unregulated illegal immigration here.
In both cases, such “borderless” immigration, heedless of the national interests of current, longstanding citizens in the countries involved, is nothing short of an assault on each legal citizen’s traditional and cherished way of life, not to mention the fact that the average citizen-worker views these waves of hostile immigrants as an imminent threat to their wages and jobs. Wealthy industrial and political elites in Western countries including the U.S., however, have continued to ignore the alarm of their own citizens, leading to epic confrontations like Thursday’s upcoming UK Brexit vote.
Here’s a leftish take on Tuesday’s well-attended and very public UK Brexit debate that lays out the vital issues at hand.
