I'm speaking mainly in a British context here, but people from around the world, feel free to chip in, because - let's face it - we've all got a metropolitan liberal elite in our country, no matter where we come from.
Today, in the UK, we were treated to a speech by former Prime Minister (and probably most people's unprompted response, when polled, to the question 'Who do you think is the most despised person in the United Kingdom?'), Tony Blair.
Tone is trying to keep Britain in the EU, which we voted to leave last year, by claiming that people "don't understand the misery and pain" it might cause. He wanted the UK to join the euro - what about the misery and pain that that actually IS causing in southern Europe, Tone?
This, from the man, who lied to Parliament, who unleashed mass demographic change upon the nation (without a mandate, mind), and who helped to create hell on earth in the Middle East.
Yet he still feels qualified to pontificate on this subject, and tell the majority of the country that they got the answer wrong, simply because he disagrees with it.
What are we going to do about people like Tone?

Voted A as I really can't stand the man - he had his day and is now trying to find his way back into UK politics and Brexit is the vehicle. I get it, he wants to stay relevant, but telling the UK to try and break Brexit is ridiculous - we have been subjected to terrorism, loss of jobs, housing, education, legal services due to the immigration spikes as well as religious radicalisation and other things. Brexit needs to happen so that we close our borders and regain and retain our British way of life. This is about the UK and not the Euro, the Eurozone (which politicians are now starting to admit is not working) or what Angela Merkel wants. The UK will still get trade deals (we have a financial hub in London) and people will still want a piece of the UK just as much as it did before. The people of the UK have spoken and the time for change is now.1

As an American it's not my place to tell the Brits what they should think. But because I love the UK and the British people (and want the UK to remain British) I was very glad that they voted to leave the EU by a significant margin. And I've read that Tony Blair allowed massive amounts of immigration into the UK during his tenure as PM, much if not most of it from the Muslim world. Blair is like so many other globalist elites: He's a multi-culturalist, open borders ideologue. And thank god for the Brits that the UK didn't abandon its own currency and adopt the Euro.1
