“The Referendum results have created a full-blown crisis in the UK and total panic in Brussels. Denmark and Holland will go next. The French elite will be under huge pressure to concede a referendum. The German establishment will be meeting frequently and in secret to prepare a Plan B, which will mean a serious restructuring of the Eurozone.”Tariq Ali  

Will the Brexit shocker inspire Bernie Sanders’ followers to continue to fight the good fight to topple their capitalist plutocracy, if not this year, then in 2020? What about Bernie, himself? Looks like he has already made his decision — during an appearance on MSNBC this morning, Bernie said he planned to vote for Hillary.

Ali’s succinct, to the point reaction to the referendum results are reposted below. Alternatively, click on the following linked title to read his remarks.

Panic in the House: Brexit as Revolt Against the Political Establishment  by Tariq Ali, counterpunch, June 24, 2016

“There is great disorder under heaven. The situation is excellent.” — Chairman Mao

The Referendum results have created a full-blown crisis in the UK and total panic in Brussels. Denmark and Holland will go next. The French elite will be under huge pressure to concede a referendum. The German establishment will be meeting frequently and in secret to prepare a Plan B, which will mean a serious restructuring of the Eurozone.

It was a revolt against the political establishment (Ed Miliband acknowledged this fact) and had Jeremy Corbyn come out for LEAVE his party would have been in a very strong position. The Tories are wounded. Labour and others should demand an early election. Impossible to wait till 2020. And the election campaign should be waged fiercely for an anti-capitalist programme and fighting the Right on racism/xenophobia, etc. Mass campaigning of the sort that won Corbyn the leadership is the way forward. 

PS: After I debated Varoufakis he came and whispered in my ear: ‘Tariq, don’t doubt that if there is a Brexit, I won’t be shedding any tears.’

Time for him to say it in public…
