Much like the toxic combination of angry racist populism with the power of the financial elite here in America, the European Union has been a brake on this dangerous combination in England. Today the British Right’s push for the UK to exit from the EU, which won the popular vote in June of 2016, remains in a total shambles. So says Kenneth Surin, writer for Counterpunch and Professor Emeritus of Critical Theory at Duke University. In explaining what is happening in the current confusion, he warns that the power of their financial sector, the City of London (their version of Wall Street) combined with the anti-immigrant right may gain even more power should the “hard” Brexiteers succeed. Then again, if there is an election, Surin says the Conservatives would surely lose to the left-leaning Labour Party of Jeremy Corbyn.
