Despite being rejected by the UK voters in the last month’s referendum, top bureaucrats running the European Union want to do precisely that. Since Brexit results, they have unveiled plans to...

As more information is revealed about the extent of European Union regulatory inanity in the wake of the #Brexit victory, the more the Leave voters have been vindicated.

Kemberlee blogged that EU regulations were set to ban traditional tea kettles and toasters that are essential appliances in the British kitchen. In 2013, the bureaucrats...

While the doomsday scenario foretold by the EU campaigners and the liberal media of untold misery, political chaos and economic disaster befalling Britain — if the country votes to leave the EU — has yet to come to pass. Instead, the British stocks and pound have rallied back after tumbling down initially in the aftermath of the...

There is no single reason Britons voted to sever ties with the European Union, but for many, decentralized, unelected foreign bureaucrats with bone-headed, meddlesome ideas was all the convincing needed to call it quits.

So ridiculous were some of the EU’s proposed regulations that even the wildest American legislators look somewhat...

Could there have been bona fide reasons for Brexit? Not if you believe Joy Reid. On her MSNBC show today, Reid suggested that old and rural voters, who tended to vote Leave, had “hijacked the future of the young.”

She also blamed voter discontent on Prime Minister David Cameron’s “austerity” program. Guess...

The reaction to the British vote to leave the EU focuses heavily on the money.

It will cost Britain jobs. The Pound is getting pounded. The EU will extract a price as bureaucratic retribution.

Britain shot itself in the economy. The departure allegedly will destroy young people, female workers, the arts, science, universities...
