To paraphrase G.K. Chesterton, we, the people of England have spoken on June 23rd, and we are in a new world – or are we? While we’ve celebrated, the EU and the politicians in the EU member states and Brussels are now readying themselves to ‘make us pay’. The papers here have two main subjects today: Cameron’s resignation and the fallout, and how to go forward. Here are the headlines:

We’re now living in a post-democratic age, where the International Left – here at home, in France, Spain, Germany and yes, Brussels – are not willing to accept a defeat handed them by a majority of voters in a democratic vote like the EU Referendum, as the headlines show. A demand for a second referendum which must give the ‘right’ result, the disregard of bilateral treaties going back to before the UK had joined the EU, ‘punishment’ and disregard for the decision of an elected PM – we’ve seen it all before! On an international level, we can stand up to these bullies. Here at home, we need all vigilance to stand up to the vested interests which aim to pit generation (the EU loving youth) against generation (the ‘stupid’ old voters who didn’t listen to the young). Democracy? For them, that’s soo last Tuesday …
