–Andrew Roberts, The Daily Telegraph, 25 June 2016:
“The role of bloody-minded insurgents willing to do the opposite of what they’re told by the authorities has long been central to great political events in British history, and the 17,410,742 people who voted to leave the European Union can certainly be ranked among their number. Almost every single agency of the international Establishment was deployed to thwart them – the CBI, IMF, Bank of England, OECD, big business, Goldman Sachs, all but one party leader, the World Bank, Presidents Obama, Hollande and Abe, the EU Commission, two-thirds of the cabinet, the Treasury, The Guardian, Davos, The Times, and so on – yet over 17.4 million people told them precisely what they could do with their expert opinion. The popular uprising campaign was not like the Poll Tax riots of 1990 but much more firmly in the mainstream of the long British tradition of legitimate peaceful protest. In this way, too, it was a more impressive achievement than the French Revolution, soaked as that was in blood. This popular uprising has toppled the established order without calling upon the tumbrel, the scaffold and the guillotine. It will secure its place in history as a result.”
While I’m personally not so sure it is bigger than the French Revolution, as it was the free choice of the British people to get into the European Union to start with, this does seem like an historic event. Of course for Seventh-day Adventists, and hopefully most all Christians, it brings to mind the toes in King Nebuchadnezzar’s vision that couldn’t get quite all together. Personally, I think this is a great victory for the common British person, and congratulate them on basically rejecting the leftist, globalist mantra of “We know what’s best, believe in us, and do as we say”. I also see this as a direct blow to those championing Climate Change, and those in rural/small town areas who are tired of being led around by city folk who don’t even know where their food, power, and stuff comes from.
Looking at it specifically from the end-times angle: There is nothing more conducive to a Laodicean condition than “business as usual”. For far, far too long, that is what has been taught and practiced in the church and most governments of the world too. So maybe God is starting to move on hearts to prepare people for the Revelation 18 Babexit? I hope, and pray so.
