Brexiteers remind me of a pathetic white male condemned to ruination in divorce court. For years, his wife has rejected his pathetic sexual advances, instead opting for flings with the pool boy and a Muslim guy she met at a club. For years, his wife has bossed him around while she goes shopping on his dime for the latest designer shoes and handbags, especially Prada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton.
Now he wants out. “I want a divorce!” he cries.
Really? Well, if it’s a divorce you want, a divorce you shall receive. Of course, we’ll need a judge. I know: let’s choose a hardcore man-hating feminist as the judge. What do you think the outcome will be? That’s right: the poor “abused” wife will take the pathetic chump for everything. She’ll keep shopping for designer shoes on his dime while sleeping with the pool boy and the Muslim guy. The husband, of course, will have a legal piece of paper saying he is “free” from her, but he’s really not. Other women will continue to shun him, and he will be forever condemned to paying for her. He will forever be her bitch.
“Brexit” is no different. For the “negotiator”, the establishment chose a hardcore EU supporter, Theresa May, who also happens to be a man-hating feminist. Now, here we are, well over a year after Britain voted to leave the EU, and what exactly has changed? Nothing. Britain is still in the EU. Britain’s leaders are still groveling at the feet of unelected EU bureaucrats, begging to let Britain please keep a portion of the 42,000-bottle EU wine cellar. Theresa May has even submitted a letter to the unelected EU bureaucrats begging them to let Britain please continue to remain in “a deep and special partnership that takes in both economic and security cooperation”. Uh, you mean, kind of like the EU?
The reality is that May is negotiating for Britain to keep the exact same framework as currently exists, except maybe without official membership in the “EU”. The EU bureaucrats will still be shopping for Prada, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton on Britain’s dime. Britain just won’t have a vote in the EU Parliament. Then again, it’s not like voting ever meant anything in the EU anyway.
The real goal of the nonbinding Brexit referendum has already been accomplished: the destruction of Nigel Farage and his United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) as an independent political force. In the 2015 British election, UKIP won 12.6% of the vote, the third highest vote total of all parties — a shocking result given the strong support of the Liberal Democrats and the Scottish National Party in previous elections. In the post-Brexit 2017 election, UKIP saw its vote total drop to just 1.8%. Now Farage is gone, and UKIP is on life support. Mission accomplished.
So let this be a lesson for you, Brexit chumps. Don’t you ever mess with us again. You will never win. You will never get what you want. We are in charge — not you.
