Facts

    Brexit, if you are not aware, is the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. In June 2016 there was a referendum, in which 52% voted to leave, then the UK government formally announced the country’s withdrawal in March 2017, beginning the process of formal withdrawal; a [Br]itish [Exit]. The UK officially withdraws from the EU today at 11 p.m. GMT.

    Right

    The Right sees this as a major win for concepts of independent government, anti-globalism, and, beyond concepts, an opportunity for the United Kingdom to move toward independent progress, in a way that is untethered from the economic frustrations of the rest of the Europian Union.

    Left

    It’s challenging to comment against Brexit when the country is on the brink of celebration, but some leftist voices are attempting to do just that, noting that Brexit will cause an increase in extremism in places like Northern Ireland, as Brexit destabilizes the UK political climate.

    “…long before Britain voted to leave the EU. Liberal societies have entrenched asymmetries of power and inequalities of wealth to a degree that citizens no longer see each other as equals. When some are rich and others are poor, when some are highly articulate and others haven’t completed GCSEs, when some have multiple houses and others are condemned to be homeless, the imperative to patiently listen to the other side is not just unrealistic: it is insulting to those who persistently lose out.”
