Moving Quietly Towards The Exit (Brexit)
I need to catch up on this whole Brexit stuff. EvC needs a blood transfusion.

Perhaps Percy and I can Stir Up some new conversations. Tangle, can you explain to me in a nutshell what direction British politics is heading? (nevermind...I'm reading this whole topic now... I think I've found my answer)

I love looking up your slang!

Re: Moving Quietly Towards The Exit (Brexit)
Politics is so nutty yet fascinating. I used to think of it rather simplistically...that on one side you had liberals and on the other conservatives...forever bickering and accusing each other. This year as I watch my labor union grapple with the Corporate behemoths, I realize that I have learned several new things. 40% of union s themselves are conservative. Now I'm not sure if this statistic includes paid union leadership, but logic would show that there is a synthesis there as well.

How this applies to European politics and how European political ideology differs from US ideology is at the moment unclear. I need a class on the subject or at least a good Wiki article.
