That the Leave vote spells the end of the reign of the vicious appeaser Cameron is an unexpected bonus on top of an equally unexpected vote for British independence. The problems with the EU are many — one was succinctly summed up in this story: “Islamist hate preacher, terrorist apologist and Caliphate agitator Anjem Choudary supports Remain because ‘there are certain principles and caveats’ in EU law that offer ‘recourse’ to Islamist radicals.”
Indeed: the UK was unable to deport open jihad terrorists, in tandem with Cameron pursuing a policy of appeasement and surrender, reflecting a society-wide neurosis that had British officials covering up the activities of Muslim rape gangs for fear that arresting and prosecuting them would be “racist” and “Islamophobic.” In observing all this from afar, I have many times pronounced Britain in danger of imminent death, but this vote demonstrates that there is life in the place yet.
It’s very clear this morning how much the EU means to Islamic supremacists and their sinister agenda: scanner Twitter just now, I see the likes of Hatem Bazian, Ingrid Mattson, Qasim Rashid and Dean Obeidallah lamenting the vote and sneering at the British as “racist” for voting to leave the EU. How could leaving a failed conglomerate of declining states be “racist”? Why, because these Islamic supremacists know full well that is a significant setback to their hopes of overwhelming the West with Muslim migrants, bringing Sharia and jihad with them. The Sharia project has been set back. But by no means halted.
It will be a rocky ride, but against all odds, there is still hope for freedom in Britain.
“EU referendum live: Boris Johnson hails ‘glorious opportunity’ of Brexit as David Cameron resigns,” by Kate McCann and Laura Hughes, Telegraph, June 24, 2016:
David Cameron has resigned as Prime Minister after Britain voted to leave the European Union.
It followed a turbulent night with Remain campaigners quietly confident until the early hours when results from Newcastle and Sunderland showed better than expected returns for the Brexit camp.
A surprise victory for a Brexit in Swansea, which was expected to vote to Remain, did little to dampen concerns despite Scotland overwhelmingly backing staying in the Union.
Other votes in Wales began to show a trend towards a surprise Leave vote, particularly in deprived communities.
Big wins for David Cameron’s campaign in London and Oxford did little to allay fears that early predictions had been wrong, as the pound began to tank – down by 6% by around 1pm.
Leave passed the finishing post just after 6am, as it became clear that nothing could swing the vote back in favour of the Remain campaign.
With the Leave campaign securing 52 per cent of the vote, Mr Cameron addressed the nation in an emotional speech outside 10 Downing Street to announce that he would be stepping down.
Statements are expected to be made by Sinn Fein and the SNP later today calling for a breakaway from the Union. London backed Remain but the turnout was lower than expected because of bad weather.
Meanwhile on the market, the FTSE 250 index has plunged a whopping 11.7pc. The index of so-called mid-cap companies had dropped an astonishing 2,017 points to 15,309 in the first few minutes of trading.
Vladimir Putin said Britain’s vote to leave the EU reflects growing concerns about immigration and security.
Speaking to reporters in Tashkent, the Russian president also said the vote is a response to unhappiness with Brussels bureaucracy.
But he condemned David Cameron for accusing him of backing Brexit, saying the British prime minister’s warning that leaving the EU would please the Kremlin was “the lowest level” of politics.
“We followed this with close attention, but we did not in any way influence it and made no attempt to do so,” Mr Putin said in comments carried by Russian media.
“The British prime minister’s comments ahead of the vote, in which he announced the Russian position, had and has no basis.” he said. “I think that was an inappropriate attempt to influence public opinion.”
Mr Putin said Brexit would have both “positive and negative” consequences for Russia and the rest of the world, but that he expected markets to stabilise from the initial shock.
“Life will show us whether there are more plusses or minuses,” he said.
The investment bank Morgan Stanley is already moving as many as 2,000 members of staff overseas to Frankfurt and Dublin, according to the BBC.
However, a Morgan Stanley spokesperson has denied the claims.
US Vice President Joe Biden said the Obama Administration had wanted Remain to win but respected the decision of the British people.
In the first public reaction by a senior US government figure Mr Biden said: “I must say we had looked for a different outcome.”
Mr Biden, speaking in Dublin, added: “The United States has a long-standing friendship with the United Kingdom and that very special bond will endure. We fully respect the decision they have made.”…
