Thanks Paul for an important memento. Sadly, the British learned nothing and Brexit will all too soon carry the gloomy little nation back to where it was in the 1970s, complete with collapsed currency, power shortages, and endless racism. The sad thing is, people at the bottom always need to create a group they can hate in order to feel marginally less bad about their own inadequacies. That's why racists are invariably low-IQ, low-achievers, and emotionally stunted. Even when, as is the case in the USA, they accidentally become President or in the case of the UK when they become the Prime Minister's chief adviser.
