Daveslist #4: Brexit Breakdown Special Edition
By Daveslist • Issue #4 • View online
This entire issue is devoted to what just took place in Europe. The United Kingdom (Britain, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland, and the remaining British protectorates - that’s a fancy word for colonies) voted yesterday to LEAVE the European Union. 
I am not overstating things when I say this move is on par with South Carolina seceding from the United States in December 1860. That isn’t to say I believe a European civil war is imminent (I don’t, of course), but that the follow-on effects of this vote will be far reaching.
Hopefully this issue answers all your questions about the significance of this event. Let’s get to it:

Shit just got real.
