I have thought many times, over the last several months, that I should have written something here about Brexit. The problem is that I thought there was too much to say.
On June 23rd 2016, in a referendum about the UK’s membership of the European Union, 17.2 million people – just under 52% of those who voted – chose the option to leave the European Union. This was a great day, in my opinion. The atmosphere was euphoric. I have explained many times in the past that I believe the European Union to be a godless, even satanic organization. There was a glimpse of light now for the United Kingdom; perhaps there could be a revival in the cause of the Gospel throughout the country, after so many decades of spiritual decline.
On March 29th 2017, Prime Minister Theresa May started the so-called Article 50 process, for the UK to leave the EU. Many “Brexiteers” thought she had fired the starting gun too early. Now we see why they were right. Two years later, on March 29th 2019, the UK was supposed to have left the EU. But that has not yet happened. There has been betrayal, and treachery among Britain’s politicians. Why has this happened?
Much of the reason is explained in this excellent short documentary, which needs to be watched in full. Click on the link below, and the video will open up for you to watch.
Other issues are involved, in my opinion, and I will name just one.On December 23rd 2016, the UN Security Council adopted Resolution 2334, criticizing Israel for its so-called settlements in the area known biblically as Judea and Samaria, but falsely called “the occupied territories” by so-called Palestinians and others. Normally such resolutions are vetoed by the US, but in his final, shameful International action, the unlamented President Barack Obama merely abstained. Resolution 2334 was passed by 14 votes to 0. What has this got to do with Brexit? It is because, shamefully, the UK, which, like the US, has the power of veto, voted in favor of the resolution. I said on Facebook at the time that this was likely to undo all the good work which had been achieved by the Brexit vote, and might even mean that Brexit was taken from them. Unfortunately, it looks like I have been proved right.
