Britain leaving the EU (Brexit) + the American Empire in decline + China looking more volatile + Britain revamping the (British) Commonwealth + the City of London booming as the world’s financial HQ = A coming British Empire 2.0? What say you, guvs and geezers?

As Brexit and British politics ramps up, members of our burgeoning Underground Knowledge global discussion group on Goodreads postulate on whether the world is watching the emergence of the British Empire Mark II.

Brexit…Not going well, is it?

 

Here’s examples of what Undergrounders are saying:

What is the Commonwealth if not the British Empire 2.0? https://www.theguardian.com/commentis…

The Empire strikes back? Or delusions of grandeur of an old relic?

Global Britain brand ‘seen as Empire 2.0’, warns top Government official as he slams post-Brexit slogan https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/politic…

What about Scotland 2.0? Delusions of grandeur that requires the architects get medicated?

The Scots think they will get North Sea oil if they left, but my guess is it would be considered a UK asset, and in a divorce divided proportionately to population.

Ministers aim to build ‘empire 2.0’ with African Commonwealth https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/mi…

The UK has a wide and varied expertise in banking and finance, oil and gas, defence, aerospace, health, IT industry and so on, and equipped for the future.

Commonwealth may yet be a saviour for the United Kingdom https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/co…

Old colonies have never been priority, but now may be time to rebuild those bridges.

City of London has much greater banking power than most realize, in my opinion…This may be an underestimated aspect of the soon-to-be EU-free Britain…

I have given up trying to pick what will happen from this bizarre exercise. Just about anything is possible, but I suspect a cleanout of politicians in the next election is probable. Whatever the ending, there will be strife, but I suspect it will be worse if they don’t exit, given both major parties promised to at the last election. 

Ed Spannaus introduces the September 1997 panel on Britains Invisible Empire. Copies of the Fall of the House of Windsor Report that he mentions are available at www.larouchepub.com Counter-Intelligence editor Jeff Steinberg opens by detailing the structure and nature of the modern British Empire starting with Queen Elizabeth, her perrogative powers, the Privy Council, and the corporate power she wields. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fOROJ…

 If they go against the outcome in favor of those who exercised their democratic right to vote to leave the EU then democracy is truly dead in the UK, and it would be better to ‘leave’ personally.

Could Brexit mean a new UK-China relationship? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c84og…

There is no doubt in my mind that the UK politicians have behaved very badly over this whole farce, and I suspect they will continue to do so as whatever happens happens.

“Why not? The country has the financial expertise to be their bankers. .”… Those (British) Venetian Baaahhhhhhhhstards!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6p-lD…

The Queen is expected to do what Parliament decides. She must be in severe difficulty in working out what to do now.

If you leave the EU, you need a large market. 1.4 billion is not bad. But additionally, it gives leverage in future trade discussions with the EU. As I understand, Germany is the major supplier of cars to the UK. The threat of Chinese competition should sharpen Germany’s attitude in trade talks.
