(NationalSentinel) Leaving the European Union was supposed to doom Great Britain to the dustbin of history, with the globalist-oriented world watching gleefully as London fell for the last time following the country’s “Brexit” vote.
Except that didn’t happen. In fact, it’s looking more and more like the Brexit vote was the best thing Britain has done for itself in a century, at least economically speaking.
Britain ended last year as the strongest of the world’s advanced economies with growth accelerating in the six months after the Brexit vote.
Business activity hit a 17-month high last month, meaning that the economy grew by 2.2 per cent last year — more than the six other leading nations, including the US, Germany and Japan.
Far from slowing after the referendum in June, as predicted by the Treasury and Bank of England, growth appeared to have improved. GDP grew at 0.3 per cent and 0.6 per cent in the first two quarters of last year, compared with 0.6 per cent and an estimated 0.5 per cent in the final period.
Are you beginning to see a pattern develop?
The globalist elite shouted from the rooftops to all who would listen that Britain was making a mistake leaving the EU. Many U.S. leaders said the same thing and continue to predict the UK’s demise.
But that’s what people who are losing power and influence always do–they try to fear monger their way into remaining relevant and powerful.
The election of Donald J. Trump, combined with the Brexit vote, have shown people all over the world that globalism–the exploitation of labor, markets and resources to the benefit of a very few–is not the way to universal, shared prosperity. The hard Left complains mightily about “income inequality” and then leeches to the antithesis of income equality, globalism, as the “solution.” It’s like claiming “war is peace” and “weakness is strength.”
As Trump’s presidency progresses and becomes one of the most successful in history, Americans and the world will see the false promises of globalism exposed. The Brexit vote, and Britain’s renewed prosperity, is helping.
Now you know why the #nevertrump forces and anti-Brexit voices are so shrill: They are losing and they don’t like it.
