Forget about the Coronavirus and the endless saga or puerile Malaysian politics and the power struggles as to who will become Malaysia's next prime minister for a moment.
At 7.00pm, this first day of February Malaysian Time (23:00 hours GMT/UTC) - less than four hours from now, the United Kingdom will have formally left the European Union.
About three and half years ago in 2016, her people voted to leave in a referendum but most members of parliament on both the right and left, as well as the YUCK! centrist Liberal Democrats, tried their best to frustrate or even deny the people's democratic decision to leave.
Oh yes! How can we forget the Right Honourable John Bercow many calls for or-d-e-e-e-e-e-e-rrrrrr! in the U.K. parliament, whilst members of parliament on both sides of the political divide duked it out, twisted and turned in a comedy of trying to delay or deny the U.K. people's democratic will, and sell them out like the Syriza party in Greece did by caving in to European Union and global financial bureaucrats and imposing their austerity dictates upon the Greek people.
Most disgusting for me was the how most 'Labour' Party members of parliament, many of whom won their seats thanks to voters, most of whom had voted for the U.K. to leave the European Union, yet these 'Labour' members of parliament, who were at heart against the U.K. leaving and tried their best to delay or prevent the U.K. from leaving, or to reach some kind of deal with the European Union where the U.K. would officially leave but defacto remain a part of the European Union and still subject to its control and diktat.
The deadlock got so bad, that a general election was held on 12 December 2019, which was mostly about the U.K. leaving and the 'unthinkable' happened - I.E. many constituencies which had traditionally voted 'Labour' for decades voted Conservative and the Conservative Party won a comfortable majority in parliament, allowing the new U.K. government to go full steam ahead towards the U.K.'s exit from the European Union, or what is called "BREXIT" for short.
Whilst I am no lover of the Conservative Party, however on this occasion I welcomed their win, just for the sake of a successful BREXIT.
Without further ado, let me leave you with two opinions by two pro-BREXIT commentators.
First is Jeff Taylor who has been hammering on in favour of BREXIT from what I perceive is a generally right wing or centre-right perspective:-
Brexit Day is here! Rejoice!
Jeff Taylor criticises the 'left' for wanting to keep the U.K. in the European Union but hard left commentator George Galloway who years earlier was booted out of the 'Labour' Party, has also been hammering in favour of BREXIT.
The UK leaving the EU might be the beginning of the end for the bloc - George Galloway
BTW. George Galloway had earlier registered a new hard left, pro-worker, pro-people party - the Workers Party of Britain which is pro-BREXIT and intends to replace the 'Labour' Party as the party of the U.K.'s working people.
Lastly, I leave you with an independent opinion by Statista on the economic loss of BREXIT to the European Union:-
Brexit: what the European Union loses
by Martin Armstrong,
Jan 31, 2020
1,317 days since the nation went to the polling booths and voted to leave the European Union, 'Brexit Day' is finally here. A lot has been written, forecast and argued about what the effect on the UK will be once it is finally out of the EU, but in this infographic we're looking at it from the other side.
Once the transition period comes to an end on 31 December 2020, the EU will once and for all lose 13 percent of its total population. Economically. 15 percent of GDP will now also be on the outside of the union. The UK's significant gross contribution to the EU budget will of course also be gone, making for a loss of 12 percent.
Congratulations! U.K. people on your BREXIT, which has dealt a blow to the globalists' agenda.
The road ahead, won't be easy but you will prevail.
Hopefully you'll vote George Galloway and his Workers Party in as your government in your next general elections and roll back the neo-liberal tide which has ravaged people's, especially workers' lives since the days of Thatcher and Reagan, and set in motion the tide which will bury the Chicago School, von Hayekists, von Misesists neo-liberals and warmongering neo-conservatives and their policies decisively.
And, before I end - who do you think I would like to see be elected U.S. president in November 2020 ?
Well, there's only one, yes only one -, and that is Tulsi Gabbard, who promises to dis-engage the U.S. from foreign wars and interference in the internal affairs of other nations and bring U.S. troops home, even though Tulsi has a slim chance of winning the Democrat Party nominations, let alone be elected president.
However, like all elected leaders, Donald Trump being an example, and not to forget our Pakatan Harapan government, they often make major U-turns on their election promises once in office.
At the end of the day, the proof of the pudding is in the eating, which is why employers have a probationary period for new employees to see if they are up to what they had claimed during the interview befor confirming their employment.
Perhaps we should have a 100 days or 180 days probationary period for elected governments and elected representatives as well, but unlike for employees, that has not been the practice anywhere, as far as I am aware.
With warmest regards
