Brexit Is An Obsession With The British Media The Way Trump Derangement Syndrome Is With The American Media

The dysfunction in the UK political system is unbelievable. I think they took a look at the U.S. Congress and thought, "Hold my beer!"

Had they simply obeyed the will of the people after the referendum in June of 2016, the current ridiculous mess would never have happened. Sure, there would have been a few months of bureaucrats frantically proclaiming the end of the world because milk carton labeling was non-standard and salt shakers had different sized holes, but the UK and the EU would have figured it out.

What the elites in Parliament don't understand (and our "elites" are no different) is that the purpose of Brexit was an expression of dissatisfaction with being ruled from afar. It had very little to do with finance and business dealings and streamlined customs procedures. Those are trivial in comparison to the desire of the people of the United Kingdom to shake off the yoke of EU control, and return to an independent country.

But the media in the UK is all in on gutting Brexit, and that means obstructing the will of the people. They can't let anyone express pro-Brexit sentiments, and criticism of the EU is simply unacceptable, even from one of the grand old men of England!

Take a look at Roger Daltry below the fold...
