The Brexit "Deal" -- For The American Reader
By Chris Rossini
The British want out of the European Union, but it's not going so well. Once a country sacrifices its sovereignty, it's not easy to get it back.
The current "deal" is that the British "leave" the EU in name only.
Americans can imagine it to be like the following analogy:
It's 1776 and the American colonists have had enough of the British Crown.
It's time to secede.
Thomas Jefferson writes King George III the following memo:
"Your Highness, we have a lot of grievances and have prepared a Declaration of Independence. (See attached).
And back comes King George III's response:
"Tom, thanks for writing, but that's not going to work for us over here.
Power NEVER wants to let go.
The Brexit "deal" conforms perfectly to that fact.
