More good news: Brexit may mean that Beer Incorporated does not happen.
Developing hot, or in the case of beer, cold, dot dot dot…
Not surprisingly, a McDonalds plays importantly into last night’s events.
She was a Remain advocate, and while she’s making noises about honoring the vote, she’ll probably do it superficially but not substantively.
May also continued the Michael Savage prohibition, implemented by Jacqui Smith, who was the final Home Secretary in the third and final Labour Term of the 1997-2010 run, the term split between Tony Blair and Gordon Brown as PM.
Unfortunate but clever Drudgetaposition this morning:
He initially quit after last year’s MP elections, but the party wouldn’t accept it. I presume this time, it’s for good and for real. Because he and the party have achieved their keystone accomplishment. That’s one thing that several observers made, that UKIP will probably go out of business because it now has no reason to exist. And actually, I think that’s going to be long run net positive, because now this clears the British rightist political space for genuine ethnonationalism.
I predict that:
(1) Leave wins narrowly,
(1a) Because the polls are showing what I think will be the ultimate narrow margin of victory, but the polls are missing some support for Leave because of the Bradley Effect and some support for Remain because of voter fraud and non-citizen voting, the two will cancel each other out
(2) David Cameron will refuse to implement the formal procedures to exit the EU, based on some pretense, either:
(2a) Openly citing the “whiteness” as the Leave electorate and the “rainbow/diverse” nature of the Remain electorate as an excuse, or citing the narrow margin of the Leave win, or citing the Jo Cox murder, or some combination thereof
(2b) He will, for public consumption, and while engaging in superficial but non-substantive measures, pretend to be exiting the EU, in private and behind the curtains, not doing so in substance.
All polls close at 4 PM Central Time, 10 PM local British summer time, and I expect as usual, the same few constituencies that historically hurry up and count after closing, like Sunderland and a few others, will follow suit here, even though the vote is country-wide, and not a per-constituency affair like parliamentary elections. However, it won’t be until late in the evening our time that constituencies start reporting en masse.
I think that we’re being set up for David Cameron not to implement Brexit even if it wins at the ballot box, using the excuses of a supposed economic crash, Leave using “racist” campaign tactics, and the non-diversity of Leave’s electorate as opposed to the rainbows in Remain.
