Referendums threaten non democracy

So the referendum in Catalonia is unconstitutional? A vote for Kurdish sovereignty is illegal? A collective initiative can be UNILATERAL?! These complaints don't sound very democratic... Communities wanting the right to self determination is the point of governments from the people's point of view. Rulers only care about taxes and fealty, but have to sell it like their population's consensus. Brexit was xenophobic and retrograde apparently, not the desire for emmancipation.

The European Union is a banking cartel to impose undemocratic reform & debt.

HURRAH for the British electorate who figured it out! Look at who else is NOT in the EU and you'll see where the smart money is. Switzerland for one. What does that tell you?! Ironically London is the financial capitol of world usury. Let Londoners complain about BREXIT and the provincial "racism" that drove the UK to seek independance. It's not xenophobia, it's local autonomy! It's what Greece should have done, it's what Ireland should have done. Breaking with EU is the first step out of debt slavery and the "austerity" squeeze engineered to privatize public wealth. Now the Scotts who didn't know enough to leave the parasitic UK are griping about being forced from the EU, doubling down on ignorance of their self interest. And Londoners are talking about seceding. The days of landed gentry and bankers carving out tax havens like Luxemburg and Lichtenstein are past. Hopefully the English peasant rebellion we've just witnessed will storm London next.   Addendum: John Pilger explains the BREXIT triumph nicely. Threats of dire financial consequences for leaving the EU are the work of extortionist. The pain will be real of course because that's how extortionists rule.

MP Jo Cox was no humanitarian. She was shill for neoliberal banking & war.

At best, murdered Member of Parliament Jo Cox was a humanitarian in the Hollywood celebrity mold. Syria, Darfur, etc. Her concerns for refugees or "pro-democracy" collateral ony promoted neoliberal interventionism. The British MP's martyrdom while opposing the BREXIT was beautifully parlayed into a character assassination of its proponants. The corporate media was able to paint them as far right extremists, instead of a grassroots groundswell against continued subjugation to Europe's banker class. MP Cox was a shill for the European Union mechanisms binding regional economies to unelected technocrats not representative governments. While the London establishment is morning the killing of their rising star, Jo Cox was no more than telegenic and young, a new face to sell their old same as the new world order.
