    John Oliver on Brexit Vote: 'There Are No Fucking Do Overs'
    Tom Huddleston, Jr.
    June 27, 2016



    A week after dedicating the bulk of an episode of HBO’s Last Week Tonight to laying out the potential pitfalls of a U.K. decision to leave the European Union, British comedian John Oliver returned on Sunday night with a condemnation of the Brexit referendum results.

    Discussing the seismic aftereffects of the U.K.’s vote to leave the EU, the British-born Oliver kicked off Sunday’s show by joking that after the events of the past week the name, the United Kingdom “is beginning to sound a bit sarcastic.” He went on: “Because the U.K. this week voted to leave the European Union, a decision that has shaken the world. And not in a, ‘Muhammad Ali beating Sonny Liston’ kind of way. More in a, ‘Those IKEA meatballs you love contain horse kind of way.’ And, the fallout in Britain has been swift and significant.”

    In addition to the global financial fallout in the wake of the U.K.’s historic decision, Oliver noted the announcement that British Prime Minister David Cameron will resign as a result of the vote, due to the fact that Cameron had supported the “Remain” camp in the vote. And he talked about the upheaval that will ensue from the Brexit vote.

    “It seems like whoever the next U.K. prime minister is going to be, whether it’s Boris Johnson or a racist tea kettle, they are going to be in for a rough few years,” he said.

    Even though he said he’d normally take pleasure in Cameron leaving his post, he couldn’t now because he knew how horrible the Brexit fallout will be for the U.K. “David Cameron announced he would be stepping down in the wake of the vote, which should make me happy, but in this situation, it doesn’t,” he said. “It’s like catching an ice cream cone out of the air because a child was hit by a car. I mean, I’ll eat it, I’ll eat it — but it’s tainted somehow.”

    Lol, I don't know about that, but the guy's threads are kept updated, indexed and informative. I don't know (or particularly care) if I'm on his ignore list, but he puts in the work.

    It's starting to sound like The Mad Cow and Hollande want to take the adversarial path to Brexit. Is this just to discourage other states from leaving the EU, or purely a negotiating tactic? Rhetorical question, as only time will tell.

    he used to moan at me for arguing with people in his threads, probably because he could only see my part of the arguments. but yeah man I agree, Arkain is a really good poster and he puts effort into his threads

    If they make it a combative divorce, I think they'll be fucking themselves in the foot (yes, fucking themselves in the foot).
    The European peoples are already apprehensive about the EU. Punishing Britain for making a decision for themselves will just rile those groups up even more, and prove that the EU is an abusive power.
    IMO.

    The EU is kind of creepy. It's like once you are in they won't let you leave. I just read Merkel wants to now stop any other nation from leaving. Wow isn't that interesting.4 freaking years hahaha

    Like a gang. Once you join you can't leave. Lol at the EU.

    Also, EU apologists don't give me that "it takes time" crap. I support the EU I just find it funny how a mess it is and that Europe feels it will collapse and cant survive without the 'glorious' EU.

    Also, the USA, Canada and the UK should now form their own trade pact/union. Maybe. Or UK can be independent like Norway and Switzerland are.

    I think their problem is that they are pushing too fast, and too hard.

    Also it is getting a tad obvious that they are using demographics engineering to undermine and dissolve their member states. If they slowed it down and made it less obvious there would be less apprehension.

    The bright side of Brexit? A US-UK trade deal
    Benjamin Oreskes and Victoria Guida
    Updated 6/25/16

    [​IMG]
    As sprawling regional trade deals become increasingly toxic politically, a trade deal with the U.K. could be relatively easy to negotiate and sell.​
