Is BREXIT some sort of a joke?

    Hi Cor,

    You have got the point, there is basically no difference. Peter Sellers was talking in the typical style that British politians do, they say a lot of words, but the content is actually zero. "What about the workers" Peter Sellers says and then he just drops the topic there and then and says nothing more about them. So he was totally ripping off British politics and British politians and that was as far back as 1957. Well Boris Johnson's comments about Brexit are similar, he basically says nothing and drops the issue as though he has nothing to do with it. And now they have all resigned or are not willing to stand for election and the British are left in the lurch. They are in serious trouble in the long run and they just don't realize how many benefits they got from being an EU member. Now they will just have to do their own thing, on what a British colleague of mine calls "mud island".

    What it has lead to in the short term is that the Rand has gained in value against the British Pound and the Euro and that is beneficial for us.

    Kind regards,

    Dirk

    Aha, I have just noticed that I did not load the Peter Sellers video, so here goes, sorry for the confusion.

    Thank you Dirk. I gathered that it had to be something like that, or I wouldn't have called him a "smooth spin-doctor", and that he certainly is! Where is the UK going with these type of people at the helm?

    Thanks for the recording. I'll listen to it a little bit later.

    Well the leaders all dropped off now.. where is it going? Could it be that someone shorted the UK companies in the stock market? :) someone will make a mint..

    Also note that privatization can now be done, and no interference from Unions and European Union..

    Hard times ahead.. and the uneducated voted british.. lol.. hard times ahead..

    That recording is funny. Precisely the way I sometimes hear them speak. Nothing but baloney.

    I see now that even the British Media (BBC) admit that the Government did not have to do this, because the referendum was "advisory" only. Perhaps this was indeed a plot.

    There's a lot of truth in that article. Perhaps they should seriously consider it.
    A lot of African countries know British rule well.

    Yes, but they have to first come for a training course to a country that is an expert in these matters, such as Zimbabwe....

    And they would need to pay a massive entry fee.... being the former colonial power.
