A Sample of Brexit Literature

From "No Rape in Europe To See Here" Doug Saunders:

"Remember the Brexit as the moment when xenophobia won."

His pouty-pants piece makes me so happy, I can barely contain myself! 

There's some more intelligent, level-headed Jew prose right here though: 

"Examining Brexit through the bloody history of pan-European fascism renders leaving Europe – at least for me, – a matter of survival."

Obviously, I disagree with the author that "right wing" antisemitism is in any way, shape or form as much as an existential problem for Jews as is Muslim antisemitism, but this is still a very good article with historical context.
