Brexit Saga – 16th June 2020

The fundamental underlying issue with Brexit is that in almost every respect it is a backward-looking strategy. The absurd reliance on World War II metaphors and memories (very selectively slanted in favour of the UK and against other foreign contributors) tells me that the Golden Age Fallacy is underpinning a lot of attitudes in the UK towards Brexit. It is as though the entire memory of World War II is derived from watching episodes of Dad’s Army, intercut with footage from Pathe News of great wartime feats of valour by plucky little Britain.

As this article explains, what the UK really needs is not freedom from Europe, but to be liberated from its own delusions.
