The Brexit Vote - What Happened?

One of the headlines a few days after the vote read: "Among young Britons, fear and despair over decision to leave EU." The future will confirm that their fear and despair is real.

If one had followed the spin by Politicians and the Media the few months leading up to the referendum, one would have been convinced that the 'Remain' side would win by a few percentage points, but that spin obviously did not work. So, what happened?

A good friend of ours that we have known for many years left the UK for Canada, when it decided to join the European Economic Community or the Common Market on January 1, 1973, as he foresaw dark days ahead for the UK and Europe. In his view, the decision by the UK to join the EU was driven by the rich, Politicians and the Financial Community (Banks), but would not show any benefits for the ordinary folks. Time has proven now that it did not. The decision to remain was also driven by the rich, Politicians and the Financial Community (Banks).

I grew up in Holland and immigrated to Canada in 1967. We have taken numerous trips back to Holland and our last trip to Holland and Belgium was in 2015. The people in Holland, Belgium, etc. were of the same opinion and following the news, since the UK referendum, it is our view that the decision by the people in the UK will eventually have a profound effect on the decline and the break-up of the EU and Western Europe, as other countries will decide to depart as well.

The resurgence of Russia under Vladimir Putin as a Great Political Power in Europe and their challenge in global order should also not be underestimated.

We have followed the stories by the media in North America, but they do not tell you the whole story and the real reasons for the decision by the people of the UK. Like the good friend of ours, he informed us that the real reasons were the government policies on Immigration (refugees) and the Islamization of Europe. Doing a little research confirms his views and that of the people in the UK.

On January 28, 2016, Swedish authorities announced that they have asked police and the country's migration agency to prepare expulsions of up to 80,000 refugees and migrants.

The picture is similar in Finland and other countries.

The following is an excerpt of the article 'Influence of the Media' listed on this website.       

Subject: Media Control and Public Opinion

"Public opinion is dangerous because most public opinion is the view of the media. If the media do not like something, their bias taints information getting to the public, and this forms public opinion. Public opinion is never based on research and facts. The public uses the media for its sole source of information."

In our article Influence of the Media listed on our website we wrote the following.

"As a member of the local business community, the local newspapers are the most important element, as society is shaped by what it hears and reads and it is conditioned by the events that influence the mind of every person. You reap what you sow."

The information provided by the media in North America on the subject is false and misleading, as it is on most social issues.
