Would You Brits Get on With Brexit Already!!!

It does indeed look like Brexit is going to be the end of the world… for the EU. If Britain will ever get off its ass and leave!!!!

If Brexit turns out to be a good thing for Britain, rely upon the rest of the European countries to more aggressively assert their interests within the EU which will lead to either the collapse or at least a contraction. An expanding EU committed to centralized control of Europe really doesn’t make much sense. Perhaps the EU can get back to what it was initially intended to be: a simple trade zone where goods could be traded free of tariffs without too much bureaucracy or centralized control.

While the EU is disintegrating or consolidating or sorting out what it is wants to be when it grows up, Britain could get back to the business of leading the Commonwealth. That is something that Britain could never do under the EU. Outside the EU Britain can quickly restore, or perhaps create anew, the old Commonwealth as a massive global free trade zone linked by common language and to a certain degree common culture.

By joining the EU Britain effectively destroyed the Commonwealth, and the EU failed to become an adequate replacement. As a Georgian (Republic of..) I sincerely wish the Brits would get on with Brexit so that my fellow Georgians could see what a useless pile of crap the EU is and forever shall be!
