The “Don’t Throw me in that Briar Patch” Department – Swedish FM Complains: If the UK Leaves the EU Others Might (Gasp!) Follow Her Out!

The voters of the United Kingdom need to be in permanent ready-to-duck mode until Thursday June 23:  Kitchen sinks, whether porcelain or metal, might cause injury!  Just about every evil imaginable (except the literal kitchen sink) has been cited as a response to if the voters say YES Brexit (Britain leaves the European Union)!

But this takes the cake:  The foreign minister of Sweden was quoted as saying:  If Britain leaves the EU, other nations (GASP!) might follow suit!  From the BBC article:

Britain’s EU referendum could lead to the break-up of the EU itself, Sweden’s foreign minister has warned.

Margot Wallstrom told the BBC a domino effect of demands for referendums and requests for preferential terms by member states could follow.

“The spill-over effect will be unfortunately felt, deeply felt,” she said. “It would be bad either way,” she added.

I can only say:  Don’t throw me in that briar patch!  The EU needs serious reform and nations opting out might be the jump start to return it to a common market with uniform NATIONAL laws and a commitment to human rights as enforced by EACH nation!  I say:  If Brexit means the end of the EU as we know it – bring it on!

But don’t forget to duck, Britons!  The kitchen sink is coming fast!  So is LIBERTY and INDEPENDENCE on June 23 if you vote NO to the European Union!

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
