Nick Park is a Genius! American Writer comments

As an American kid, who grew up in the 1950’s watching the ‘Wonderful World of Disney’ ,and its many iterations with my younger brothers and sisters, Nick Park’s Wallace and Gromet video collection was something I gave to my best friend’s kids. Charming and utterly winning, not speak of path breaking using ‘clay-mation’ pioneered by the great Harryhausen: Sinbad!

Disney was the great American kitsch meister and political reactionary who wouldn’t allow ‘long-hairs’ into his Anaheim amusement park, in the middle sixties. Those canny Corporatists, that now head this well wrought  ‘Wonderful World’, now features ‘Gay Days’ that poor old ‘Walt’ would have never, ever allowed. The Anaheim park even had a gay club!

The notion that the ‘Brexit’ constitutes the self-expulsion from the Eden of the EU is the perpetual Party Line of the Financial Times. Here is what historian J.G.A. Pocock’s said on the ‘calamity’ of  the ‘Brexit’:

Profoundly anti-democratic and anti-constitutional, the EU obliges you to leave by the only act it recognises: the referendum, which can be ignored as a snap decision you didn’t really mean. If you are to go ahead, it must be by your own constitutional machinery: crown, parliament and people; election, debate and statute. This will take time and deliberation, which is the way decisions of any magnitude should be taken.

The Scots will come along, or not, deciding to live in their own history, which is not what the global market wants us to do. Avoid further referendums and act for yourselves as you know how to act and be.
