    Yes, I am a socialist. I don't deny the Brits the right to shoot themselves. But I have to point out their action threatens the global capitalist system, which I guess I should be for, but I dread the suffering that's coming.

    @A Guy "Since when does an individual country not have a right to govern their own destiny?"

    Since capital became global. We have a GLOBAL capitalist system, and if a key component fails, the rest falls, including the United States. Please don't ignore global economics while you defend local politics.

    Same as in the US elections.

    Britain wants to leave the European Union. Who should stop them? And why?

    Since when does an individual country not have a right to govern their own destiny?

    A chaotic exist by Britain will deny the continent the critical financial clearing services of London. This could plunge the world into recession, if not outright depression!

    May tried to do what could not be done, a Brexit with minimal impact. Don't forget that Brexit was fanned by Russia and sold to the British voters by right-wingers with Russian ties. May really wasn't a good PM, but sadly, Corbin with Labour isn't a great choice either. Interesting how the UK and the US are in similar boats, the top two leading candidates are subpar or worse, and Russia is smack in the middle of things.
