Thank God!

Brexit has won!  Britain is Britain again and not just an appendage of a disgusting bureaucratic State.  To many Australians, Britain is still "Home" in the sense that all our ancestry is from there.  So despite minor rivalries in cricket etc., we still wish Britain well and hope for her flourishing.  We can now resume hope of that.  Britain's last best hope has been seized despite a torrent of lies against it.  As so often in the past, Britain has left her fightback to the last moment, but, as in the past, she has triumphed over those who wished to subdue her

And particular kudos to Nigel Farage, who fought a long and often lonely battle for this.  And great credit to the Mackems and Geordies -- who delivered a massive 22-point win for Leave in Sunderland -- JR

British PM David Cameron resigns after Brexit vote

A very good speech.  A very correct speech.  A very British speech.  Worth listening to in full

David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister after the UK public voted to leave the European Union in the referendum.  Excerpts from his speech:

A tearful Mr Cameron - with his wife by his side - said he had already spoken to the Queen about his decision.

The PM campaigned to remain in the EU but the public rejected his arguments and chose to leave the EU by 51.9% to 48.1%.

Speaking to masses of reporters outside Downing Street, the PM said a new leader would be in place by the Tory party conference in October.

'The British people have voted to leave the European Union and their will must be respected,' Mr Cameron said.

'The country requires fresh leadership to take it in this direction,' added the PM.

'I will do everything I can as Prime Minister to steady the ship over the coming weeks and months, but I don't think it would be right for me to try to be the captain that steers our country to its next destination.'

Mr Cameron said he had fought 'head, heart and soul' to stay in the EU but that voters had chosen a different path.

Tears in his eyes and his voice cracking slightly, Mr Cameron's final words were: 'I love this country, and I feel honoured to have served it, and I will do everything I can in the future to help this great country succeed.'

  1. I am happy with the decision too. But I do think that in little matters of life and in great collective matters too (in which it is even more visible), that it is not what we choose or what we do that matters most but why we do it, for that is what carries the greatest consequence, is what gives rise to circumstances, from within which are made further decisions in the same direction of motivation or different, and so on. I hope that generally the English have made this decision for the sake of truth, for freedom, and to benefit others too. Europe continues to need English friendship and assistance, in the form of encouragement and example, as much as any other assistance. In throwing off the EU's restrictions to freedom and self-governance, rising to her feet and standing tall and independent, and in demonstrating self-governance and continuing friendship with Europe, will encourage other overwhelmed European nations to assert their own right to individual freedom too. For every individual and every nation are entitled to self-governance, providing they do no harm to others. The British have many more decisions to follow this recent one, and they must all be made for good and right reasons, for truth, for freedom, and for genuine good will and assistance to others, and the decisions of other nations must be too. The phony image-conscious goodness of leftism that is deceptive, restrictive and destructive, must be countered with genuineness goodness that is truthful, strong, liberating, and genuinely helpful to others to assist them towards their sensible liberty and best potential too.
