Britain voted to secede from the european union and become a completely independent state again (britain + exit = brexit).

Ah, okay. So what was the expected outcome of this movement? Why did Britain want to secede?
#175 - efeye (11/02/2016) [-]
Some people did not want "some twats in Brussels" to decide what laws and policies britain could and could not follow, as well as pouring large amounts of money into a sluggish and incompetent bureaucracy that then spent their money on failed projects and poorly gouverned countries like Italy and Greece simply because they whined the loudest. The EU would also force Britain to accept a minimum number of refugees (this was at the height of the refugee crisis, and many brits were scared by the reports of assaults and raping done by the "refugees", as well as camps like "the jungle" in Calais).

Overall, the EU has done more good than harm, and Britains money in vs money back ratio is not as bad as it is for other nations, such as Sweden and the Netherlands, therefore the expected outcome was to stay. However, the leave side won by a small margin on election day, partly believed to be due to stay side having a comfortable lead in all the polls before election day, so their supporters didn't bother to vote.

This is quite bad news for the EU as a whole, since Britain, France and Germany make up its de facto core.

I agree that the EU has good points and bad points. Overall, I would say it has been mostly good, especially in improving worldwide trade, keeping peace, uniforming laws between nations, enforcing concerns on enviromental impact and animal abuse in the meat industries, improving scientific progress and helping european nations stand up to superpowers such as China and the soviet union.

However, for a guy having a beer in the pub the local economy has a more striking impact than more abstract things such as wold peace or the amounts of dangerous chemicals allowed in the plastic of the toys his child is chewing on.

While it helps them economically stand up to such powers it is NATO which empowers the military aspect. And the EU was always going to have long term problems as a policy that is good for Germany and France may not be good for Spain and Italy. In my personal view while as a trading block it stood a chance it the idea of Europe as a federal state was always doomed to fail every European Empire inevitably collapses in on itself

I agree with you, the EU as it is have sort of lived out its usefullness and have to be reformed or reshaped in one way or another. Sadly, that requires effort and competence from politicians, so it will probably continue on a slow motion collapse.

I just hope they don't attempt to consolidate power because they would possibly lead Europe into a very unstable environment.

(Full disclosure I support Clinton)
Things got nasty/personal on both sides but they actually talked about substance as well this time, Aleppo, Obamacare and the like. Both towed their usual lines and neither really shocked anyone on those terms.

Although I dont agree that Lester Holt was biased in Debate number 1 these commentators didnt even try to hide their disdain for Trump. I think interrupting him (or her) if hes not even remotely answering the question or shushing his interruptions is acceptable but they even went so far as to argue back and forth with him which was annoying as fuck.

If you look at it from both candidates' views I think it breaks down like this.
Clinton had a great political week and is climbing in the polls, she basically had to not pass out on stage to complete her mission tonight
Trump has had a terrible political week with many speculating hes down for the count with no chance of redeeming his numbers whatsoever. I think he proved those people wrong but didn't necessarily gain any forward momentum.
Just my take
