October was the most recent deadline, and it came and went without Brexit. And so the British people voted overwhelmingly to oust the legislators who were getting in the way of Brexit.
...Boris Johnson has the biggest conservative majority in England since Margaret Thatcher in the 1980s. A decisive one at that--an absolute majority, not a coalition.
And why did this happen? The same reason Donald Trump happened: the government was not listening to what the people wanted.
"A large number of MPs who had said that they would support BREXIT but who then changed their minds--in the voters eyes broke promise and stabbed the electorate in the back--were turned out of office."
The left wing reacts to the loss as it normally does, with a temper tantrum.
And it's the same temper tantrum it always is. The playbook does not change.
"The voters are stupid! Stupid and racist! And they're bigots! Selfish and bigoted!"

Hey, California: eat a bucket of dicks. Heh.

So that stupid German girl who sailed to America on a really expensive yacht to talk about climate change? Time made her the "Person of the Year" for 2019.
She joins other luminaries such as Adolf Hitler (1938), Josef Stalin (1939 and 1942), Nikita Krushchev (1957), and the Ayatolla Khomeini (1979). To be fair, 1957 was two years before Krushchev's famous "We will bury your grandchildren!" remark, but as you can see, the editors of Time have not been afraid to extol the virtues of mass-murdering dictators!
She's on the same side as all of those guys, too.

"Welcome to Illinois where the law would rather you get beaten to death than defend yourself from a habitual abuser without the necessary paperwork and fees." The entire purpose of gun control laws is to disarm the populace so that it must depend on government for protection. The last thing government wants is for the people to have any self-reliance whatsoever.
The people who stood around during Hurricane Katrina and didn't do anything to save themselves because no one told them what to do? That's the perfect citizen, according to the left.
The government wants you to be afraid for your safety. That way you're more likely to roll over and give up your constitutional rights.

267 spotless days in 2019. One more day without sunspots and we tie 2008, which is the space-age record for spotless days at a solar minimum.

Anyway, it was a pretty busy week. I'm glad it's Friday.
