The New American: “In a speech on Sunday to her British Conservative Party’s conference, Prime Minister Theresa May made it sound as if she had been a supporter of Brexit all along.
We have voted to leave the European Union and become a fully independent, sovereign country. We will do what independent sovereign countries to: we will decide for ourselves how we control immigration. And we will be free to pass our own laws….
We are not leaving the EU today to give up control of immigration again and we are not leaving only to return to the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice.
And then she dropped the bomb.”
Opinion: Delay. The UK electorate is divided with 52% still favoring a Brexit and few are expressing a second vote.
So why the delay from January to March?
The leave vote won because of immigration. In the British Election Study almost 90 per cent of people who thought that immigration was bad for the economy voted for Brexit.
But sentiment is beginning to soften. According to The Financial Times, the expectation that Brexit will bring fewer migrants fell by about 10 points:
“The number of people who think that Brexit will benefit the National Health Service is down from 40 per cent before the vote to 26 per cent in September. This suggests that while most voters remain happy with their decision, perhaps a greater number accept they were misled.”
Like the US election, globalism is still up for grabs in the UK, and we won’t know till March 2017 if Brexit will pass, or drag on until it finally dies due to another referendum.
The revived Roman Empire of Daniel 7:23 is having growing pains.
