Brexit: PragerU vs. Reality

Brexit: PragerU vs. Reality

Show Video

Hey, what's, up everyone welcome, to my brexit, video alternative. Title, reality. Is often disappointing. The, video we're looking at today is from fake University Prager, you and it's not about why the UK should leave the EU that's, an old hat by now but, Viet voted to leave I've chosen, this one because as soon as the referendum, was over a lot, of talking points from the probe Rex a lot got dropped and exposed as the obvious lies that they were but. This video because it came out after the referendum only. Features the bare bones of the probe brexit side it also asks, bigger questions, like is the EU under my critique or what, does sovereignty, really mean to, top things off it's made by mister brexit himself, for my you keep member Nigel Faraj who, has been doing nothing but agitating. For the UK to leave the EU so, ideally. He should have the best arguments, so, without stalling or endlessly prolonging, what will ultimately be a very painful experience let's, dive into the video. If one big government is bad. Imagine. How much worse two big governments would be but, that's what people living in Europe have to deal with their, own nation's, bloated, government and the. Supranational government, of Europe, now, known as the European Union bureaucracy. Times - how's, that for horosho, well actually you've, no idea it's worse than you think believe me I know, because for 17 years I've represented, South, East England as a member of the European, Parliament the, --use, alleged, body. Okay. Big government and this is actually another reason why I like this video but breaks it so much it becomes pretty clear from the get-go that this video is designed as propaganda, targeting. An American, audience this. Is why the video starts out with the big government talking, point although the dichotomy, of small, versus big government, usually isn't used as a political slogan in Europe it's predominantly, a pejorative in the American, lexicon and, doesn't make much sense in the context, of European governmental. Bodies since, they're pretty much all big by American, standards but, Faraj used the slogan and the less because he wants to paint a picture of an overarching, giant. Bureaucracy wasting. Tax money by shoving papers around that, doesn't really work with the EU though the percentage of the EU s-- annual, budget that goes towards administrative, costs is about 6 percent which, is way less and what other national governments spend comparing. The EU, to any national and governmental body in terms of efficiency is going to end up in a win for the EU because it's way smaller and, fulfills, different functions, now look at the EU scoffs per capita makes this blatantly, obvious the, EU doesn't pay out social, benefits, or any of that which allows it to poor the majority, of its budget directly. Back into its member states with, the biggest chunk going towards furthering, economic, development, if you're curious where the money goes that your country pays in you can just look it up by selecting, a country in the EU s budget at a glance tour or if you want to know how it might affect you directly you can visit what the EU does for me dot EU and, check out what local projects. Have been supported, with EU funds it's, also wrong to think having the EU as a supranational, body, means significantly. More bureaucracy for, its member states let, alone times two for, instance because, of the common market national. Governments don't have to negotiate trade, agreements with one another and because of free travel, there are no Botox checks anymore the big government's, long is put in this video to cause a gut reaction from, an American audience to, view the membership, in the u.s. bad without, having to justify that claim and, you could easily use the same big versus small government dichotomy.

To Justify, any kind of separatist, cause imagine. Having to deal with a city administration, a state, government and a, federal government on top of that bureaucracy, times, three ludicrous. I tell you let's, get Germany back to when we had real freedom as a patchwork of feudal city-states, but, that was just the intro so let's see what nigel Faraj has in store for us I was. Also leader of the United Kingdom Independence Party, or UK where, I led Britain's effort to leave the European Union to. Their everlasting, credit, that's, just what happened on June, 23rd, 2016. The United Kingdom left, the European, Union the world knows it as brexit. Just. A minor nitpick and some additional information here it's worth mentioning that Nadja Faraj has left youtube since this video came out out of the party's anti-islam. Fixation, and for cuddling up to racist, fraudster Tommy Robertson, or Andrew. McMaster. Or whatever pseudonym he goes by these days I'm, also not sure why frosh claims the UK left on June 23rd 2016, or why the videos title in the past tense the, UK hasn't left you they just had a non-binding, referendum on, if they should do it but, then again minor. Nitpick. Brexit. Is a statement of national sovereignty don't. Misunderstand me. I like, nations, I like borders, I like the people that live within, those borders making. Their own laws but I don't like it when faceless, bureaucrats, make laws for nations they don't even live, in but. That's what they do in the European, Union imagine. A Belgian, telling a Brit how much he can charge his customers, all the reverse the, EU bureaucrats do, this in a myriad of different ways all day every, day, okay. First, viewpoint, sovereignty. And what sovereignty, actually, means can vary a lot depending on, who you ask but for the sake of argument, let's use, it as a standard for self-governance, so. The question is will, the UK have more self-governance, outside, the EU than, inside well, it definitely will have in some regards. Brushing, aside that there are no EU laws on the books to whom the UK has not agreed there, won't be other nations, involved in the making of laws and regulations, or will they're looking, at the trade talks that have been going on since the referendum it becomes, clear that the former supposed shackles, the UK had a say over will. Be replaced by new ones with, much less leveraging, power on the side of the Brits the, US for instance knows, that the UK is in a weak position at the moment and used that to push for deregulation of British markets and to get rid of consumer protection guidelines, the, most recent example being the u.s. insisted, on lifting UK regulations, on agricultural, goods as part, of a post brexit, trade deal this could also reduce the quality of food for UK citizens, since, local industry might have to lower standards, as well to stay competitive with the US companies, and this is not project, fear it's reality, it's, happening, right now the u.s. - UK ambassador recently. Even felt obliged to publish an op-ed defending, the practice of bleaching chicken meat with chlorine, a practice, that has been banned in the EU since the late 90s, and because, these regulations, are not linked to access to the world's largest trading bloc anymore the, UK doesn't have much to combat these demands how's, that for sovereignty and if the UK wants to continue to sell its goods on the European, market it will still have to abide by EU rules but without having a seat at the table in terms of what those rules actually are or, take immigration, for example which, I know was a hot-button issue prior, to the referendum again. Brushing, aside that the UK already had complete control over outside, EU immigration, and also Asylum policy, it looks like leaving the EU will have the exact opposite, effect of what a lot of brick city has hoped for well, it's safe to say that immigration, from EU countries towards the UK will decline in fact, that is already happening, immigration. From outside EU, countries is rising, at the same time and here's, where we get back to leveraging power countries. Like India or China will, cap or trade agreements with easier access to visas for their citizens something. We are also already seeing regarding. Those faceless bureaucrats. If I want to check who represents, me in the European Parliament for instance I can pretty easily look up not only their faces, but contact, details and parliamentary, activities, but. In all fairness people, from other EU member, states are involved in drafting and passing legislation that, affects the UK but it's not like those laws only a fair the UK they affect the entirety of the EU similar.

To How MPs and British Parliament get to vote on legislation that, not only affects the district they represent, but the rest of the country as well you see it right now with brexit itself Scotland. For instance voted to stay in the EU but now are forced to leave regardless, and sadly. There is nobody like the EU Commission in the UK in which Scotland could veto important, decisions but I don't want to get ahead of myself, it. Is a conspiracy. Of the elites who. Are those elites well they're. A bunch of self-important. Overpaid, social, engineers, with, useless college, degrees who, have never done, a proper day's work in their lives and have no connection, with ordinary decent. People I'll take the, good sense of an Italian farmer, or a French, Baker over the arid intellectualism. Of an EU bureaucrat. Any day. Now. There is much to say here except, that it's trying to frame brexit, as a ordinary people, versus elites issue when, I would say the exact opposite is true, the winners of brexit will be rich people who do to the weak pound will have it way easier snatching, up property in the UK but. Regardless if that prediction turns out to be wrong it's not like Faraj talking point holds much water in the present a 2013. Study on the EU SME piece has found that a number of elected officials who have never been employed outside of politics comes. In at about 10 percent and while I had a hard time finding matching, data for the British Parliament a 2018. Paper by the House of Commons library puts, the number of MPs formerly, working in politics, at seventeen point one percent as of 2015, it's, true however that the EU parliament has a large share of people from the upper categories, of the social space like all Parliament's, really but, there are also exceptions like, from a president, of the European Parliament Martin Schulz who was a bookseller prior to becoming a politician, compare, that to Faraj himself, who, is a former broker definitely. A real job there but, if comrade Faraj wants to make the case how financial, inequality translates. Into political inequality I am all for that power, to the people and all I'd hope that's what he's going for though and this, is kind of unrelated but looking up for hours background, I got curious about some other top brexit yes you know the Vanguard, against the out-of-touch EU elites and what, I found was really entertaining. For instance while Jacob Riis mark was out campaigning in his mid-twenties, driving his mother's mercedes-benz he, took the family nanny with them what, a joke this all is and. I say these things not, as an anti European, I love, Europe it's a fantastic. Exciting. Great continent, different, peoples languages. And cultures, but, these peoples, with their languages and cultures, have effectively, been hijacked, by a giant, ever-expanding, bureaucracy. The, European, Union people. Will say but, isn't there a parliament, a European. Parliament, that represents, the people of Europe well yes but. This body has got no real power it can't make, its own laws, rather, the. Power resides, with the European, Commission they're, unelected. And they can't be removed and that's how absurd the, whole thing is before. We jump into the EU s political system if hijacked. Means they joint off their own will to do so because they benefit from EU membership I would, agree otherwise, it's just a lie really here's. Where we get to the big one the, EU Commission and Parliament, and the Commission has been a target for the leave campaign pretty, much from the get-go portraying. It as a - with which unelected, EU officials, rule, over you citizens, who can't even vote them out of office I don't want to get into too much detail on how you legislation, is drafted but. It is correct that the EU Commission ultimately caused the shots Y, loss can be requested by the Parliament, the European Central, Investment, Bank 25 percent of its member states all the citizens themselves by gathering signatures or, submitting petitions, the, Commission doesn't have to comply with that the, Parliament for instance can't push a law through the Commission no matter how big the support is and, as far as I can see this argument has been one that convinced a lot of people that the EU is ultimately, undemocratic. And strips, its member states of their sovereignty in, my opinion that viewpoint stems, from a fundamental, misunderstanding on, why the Commission exists, in the first place and what might that be, drumrolls. Flees. The. EU Commission exists.

To Protect the sovereignty of its member states for. Instance if a couple of Member States would push for legislation in, Parliament that is to the disadvantage, of another state that, state can just be to the law of AIA its seat in the EU Commission it's true that the members of the Commission aren't elected directly, but, they have about as much democratic, legitimacy as, Minister on a national, level in addition, if the Commission wants to pass something it has to be agreed upon by every state representative. In the EU Parliament, it's not that way Germany. For instance has 99, m EPS proportional. To the number of its citizens, a much, smaller country like Estonia only, has six but, through the Commission it could block legislation it, didn't want to pass this but it's much smaller representation. In the EU Parliament, further, the Commission can only propose laws in areas where the national governments, have unanimously, agreed to allow it put, another way the Commission, can only propose EU, laws in areas where the UK government, has allowed it to do so and naturally. The EU Parliament as well as other stakeholders also, have to approve laws put, forward by the Commission, it's also not true that EU commissioners, can't be removed the, European, Court of Justice as, well as the EU Commission president, can force a member to resign and the EU Parliament can even make the entire Commission resign by a vote of no-confidence, but. Just so you know that, doesn't mean there isn't the case for reforming, the system with for instance letting the Commission president be elected directly, by the people there. Is actually a lot of stuff about the EU that sucks and I'll talk about that a bit later in the video but the sheer idiocy by, Faraj and other brexit ears doesn't, even allow for that kind of nuance. The. European, Parliament meets in Brussels, at least that's. What I thought when I was elected there but, once a month do, you know what happens they, load the contents, of our offices and papers, into, big plastic, trunks. And they, put those trunks on lorries, and they, drive them then he 400, miles down.

Europe's Motorways, to, a French city called Strasbourg, where for, four days the contents, of our office in our papers, are put, into a new office and the, Parliament then sits there twelve, times a year this back and forth happens, and this from an organisation, who say they want to reduce their. Level of carbon. Foot, and this, from an organization. Whose, accounts, have not been given a clean bill of health for the auditors, for, the last 20. Years this. A parliament. It's. More like a traveling circus, now. All of Europe knows that. It's costing nearly. 300. Million euros every year to, move this back and forth from Brussels to Strasbourg, sorry. I have to chime in here folks but with these Prager u videos it's very hard to take everything point by point what, is described yes the Traveling Circus is actually true, although the costs are closer to 114. Million euro annually, according to a recent audit it's, a waste of money that I think should not happen funnily. Enough this, was initially done to save money back, in the 50s, there was no suitable building available, and Luxembourg, the seat of the European Coal, and Steel community, which was the predecessor to the EU so, they picked a spork and were able to use the seat of the European Council to save money since, then a lot has happened and, more at my EU institutions, have been concentrated, in Brussels but France does not want to let go of their only major EU institution, that, said the EU is not a monolith, most MEP s-- actually opposed us and sometimes even boycott, gatherings in Strasbourg, so, we'll, see where it goes I guess but, just to insert a sense of scale here if you take the annual costs, for moving to Strasbourg, and multiply, that times 3 you, roughly have the estimated cost for brexit, according, to a study by the Centre for European reform. Although, these numbers are hard to determine this, estimate falls in line with the ones from officials at the Bank of England and the UBS, group and when I say costs, for brexit, I mean, costs, each week, from, the time of the referendum, to September, 2018, resulting. In roughly 20 billion euros up until that point that's, just the estimate at Lausanne GDP, growth by the way not the money the British government spends directly, be, that as it may I genuinely have no idea why they decided to include the records of the EU score, of audit has at that point in the video this, court doesn't judge what money is spent for but, the reliability, of the financial, records so, this money being spent on moving to Strasbourg, in itself, has no effect on the assessment, for the last few years the, court has judged the records of the EU to be fair and accurate but, also found that more than 2% of payments contain errors, and these, errors usually boil down to stuff like GU funds not being spent according to established guidelines, like awarding and he you found a contract, directly without, holding a proper bidding process and guess, who's responsible, for that it's the member-states in the UK's example, at 2014, Public Accounts Committee criticized. The following over, the last decade, the UK government has secured at least 650, million pounds, and penalties to the European Commission because, of errors and how UK public bodies have spent European Union funds EU, rules and regulations, for spending EU funds are complex, and this in itself contributes, to errors however, UK.

Governments Have chosen to design programs which have added to this complexity, driving. Up the risk of errors and penalties further UK, government departments, have exhibited a distinct lack of urgency in tackling complexity, and reducing the levels of penalties, in cured HM, Treasury has, not done enough to hold departments, to account for spending EU funds nor to encourage learning from the best practice, nor, to lead by example by, improving the quality of information available. On how well you funds are spent in the UK so, much for that now let's listen to what Nigel concludes, from the fact that France is able to block the moving off Parliament to Brussels entirely so. Why isn't it reformed, well, the way the EU is being structured to, change that would. Require changing. The treaties and to, change the treaties would. Need all 28. Member, governments, to agree not to go to Strasbourg, 12 times a year and you know something the French are never going to agree to that because, it's in their economic interests. For, the travelling circus to, go to Strasbourg, that it shows you that, a system of lawmaking, has been devised where, not only can the voters not change anything but, the institutions themselves are, pretty, much incapable. Of reform, now. If you're like me you might get a bit confused, by now because, apparently it's, a big problem for national Faraj that member states can dictate law to other member states which, they can for the record but, it's also bad that every country has the ability to block changes that are not in their interest I'm starting. To think a large portion of EU criticism, by right-wingers, is just in a political, tool and lacks any kind of substance or consistency, but, we're about to be served a real example of supposed you tyranny, so let's listen in. Unfortunately. This is no laughing masa let, me give you an example, my, countrymen, know only too well the. United Kingdom is an island it's surrounded, by the sea and yet as, members of the European Union, we were only allowed to catch, 20%. Of the, fish swimming. In territorial. British, waters what that meant but, tens of thousands of jobs lost in Britain's, coastal, communities as we effectively gave away the. Ability to look after one of our greatest resources, to a bureaucracy based, in Brussels, this. Is the last point Nigel brings up and it's also a very common one but, the way this is framed should make your ears ring from the start really because, of Britain was only allowed to catch 20%. Of the fish swimming in British waters implying. Other EU states take the other 80% there. Wouldn't be any fish left would there it's true however that how much fish Britain is allowed to catch is subject, to a quota negotiated.

On An EU level Britain's, share in this quota is about 30 percent and that is because there's no such thing as a British. Fish that, implication, is a red herring, fish. Fish. Don't respect national boundaries, and depending on the fish and the time of the year they move in and out of British waters in the case of the North Sea herring for example, most, of the juveniles live in the southeast, corner around the German Bight where if the adults tend to congregate around the Shetland Isles prior to spawning, at various sites along the British coast this, is ye you countries strike agreements, on how much each member state can catch it's, also not like it's just thirty percent that Britain gets it depends on the fish really for, example, the UK gets about eighty four percent of the North Sea haddock quota 81, percent of the North Sea monkfish, quota in ninety eight percent of the west of Scotland, Pronk voter but, only four percent of the North Sea spread quota adding. To that these, quotas, are largely based around the agreements, that existed, prior to the EU some. Even date back to the Middle Ages so. Leaving the EU does not mean the UK will have more control over how much fish they can catch they, just opted out of the existing agreement and will ultimately have to strike another one but, wait I hear you say can, the UK just say these, are waters, we will catch how much fish we place and we don't care about other countries they, can just stick to their own waters, theoretically. Speaking that's, possible. But here's where we get to what actually destroyed a significant, part of the British fishing industry, it's called the cod Wars which were a series of disputes, over fishing rights between the UK and Iceland, mostly, they were kicked off by Iceland going see, these waters over there yeah, that's our fishing territory, now, at one point it even escalated, to ships intentionally, ramming into one another British, Fisher boats requiring, protection from the Royal Navy and Iceland, allegedly demanding, the us to send fighter jets and bomb British ships isn't, history amazing. In, the end all these disputes, ended in favour of Iceland, resulting, in thousands of British fishermen becoming, redundant here you might be asking yourself how a nation like Iceland, was able to force a naval superpower, like Britain into submission it, was actually pretty easy for Iceland they just threatened to pull out of NATO and since, Iceland, is placed in the Greenland Iceland, UK gap which was a submarine, warfare choke point during the Cold War the, UK had no choice but to back down one, more thing regarding fishing, rights though it's true that even after the cod was small, fishing businesses that make up the engines of a lot of coastal communities have been declining but this is much more likely down to the fact that the splitting up of the quota which the UK government, is responsible, for is mostly ending in favor of large companies rather than small ones now. Why am I telling you about the cod Wars at the end of this video in, my opinion, this is the perfect showcase why sovereignty. Is such a useless term surrounding the brexit discussion, Britain, isn't an empire anymore they, will have to work with other countries in an increasing, globalised world understanding.

That Is one of the reasons the EU exists, in the first place together. We have a much better chance to make our own rules and, not become prey to other world powers imposing. Their will on to us that's, why the domino, effect at national Faraj predicts, at the end of the video didn't happen I want. Good relations between all the European, nations, I want, prosperous, free, and fair trade between those nations but, I'll be damned if I'm going to give up my rights as a British citizen so, that some yura crack can tell me how, to live I won't, do it and I'm certain, that across, the continent, ultimately, the French and the Italians won't. Put up with it either I'm, Nigel Farage the. Leaf camp seems to have miscalculated, who the dominant power in Europe really is and that this power will do everything to protect its member states and. Trait that being in the you actually means something, for, instance prior to the referendum when, the subject of the Irish border came up as rarely as that happened prominent. Brexit ears seemed pretty confident, to be able to struck a deal with the EU despite its red lines on the issue now, it turns out that the EU won't, throw Ireland under the bus and the UK slowly starts to realise what being outside, the club really means and please, don't get me wrong there, are a lot of aspects, about the EU that are genuinely worth of criticism, we see it right now with the huge opposition to article 13 and if, you're mad about that here's what you can do keep, that anger inside grow, it care, afford like some kind of rage, baby, and then, let it out at the ballot box during the European elections in May here's, a handy breakdown to help you channel that anger besides. That I would even go as far as to say the EU project, will fail if it doesn't find an alternative, to its dysfunctional monetary, policy, setting, up the EU like I would like to have it would not only require changing, several treaties but, also the shift away from neoliberal. Politics and although, movements, are springing up that push for a change like this it remains a gigantic challenge, but, even if the UK will take a significant, swing to the left after leaving the EU it cannot escape the gravitational, influence of Europe 21st. Century socialism. Requires, transnational. Cooperation. Brexit. As a project, of nationalist, Rhee entrenchment, offers. Nothing, to combat the effects of global capitalism, I always, felt like I missed my chance to, make a video about brexit, since I wasn't making videos while the decision was made but. As seen in this video even now the people who push for brexit denied to accept what has become an obvious truth brexit. Was and is, a giant, con it's, a dangerous fantasy that won't solve Britain's problems, and will also make life worse for the average person and the people who pushed for it and remain to push for it despite this reality deserve. To be hounded out of their political careers, for, so willingly deceiving, the people they, are supposed to represent. So. That. Was that what, kind of put me off about making a video on breck said was that the timing always, seemed wrong since there's so much happening and there are new developments every, day and with, brexit, possibly, being postponed, now and labour backing a second referendum who. Knows what will happen maybe, there will really be a sanction, to the side or perhaps I'll have to set up some kind of refugee. Communities. Left Sheba's here on the mainland another. Thing that I couldn't find the right spot for in this video is that non brits who oppose brexit, should keep in mind that a bunch of people didn't vote for brexit, or have since changed their minds with, europe's growing frustration, at brexit I've repeatedly, seen anger over breakfast being expressed, as a sort of casual. Bigotry, and we shouldn't ever let that slide I think that's it for today if you listened to me ramble over the credits you're probably extremely impressed, by the names rolling by luckily, you can get in on the action by becoming a patron via, the link in the description, my, last couple of videos were a light on history unfortunately but, I'm going to make up for it with the next one when, we'll talk about the Crusades how exciting, until. Then let's, just all try to stick it out and I hope to see you the next time have, a good one.

Hey folks. Made a blunder here. While a member state can theoretically use his seat in the commission to "block laws", that job really lies more with the Council since the commission is supposed to act in the common european interest. In addition to that, laws are send to national parliaments and they can reject them aswell, if they think it violates the principle of subsidiarity. This video explains it pretty good: Also big thank you to my Patrons!

Three Arrows do you think you can make a video debunking Milo Y (I forgot how to spell his name but he’s a white, British gay man that seems to view himself as an intellectual) or Ben Shapiro?


The seats in the council are always held by the ministers of the member state governments, one per state (but with weighted voting power). The Council appoints commissioners with the approval of the European Parliament.

I'm still confused. If people in the European commission/council aren't elected, how do they get their positions?

Three Arrows can you please make a video on freedom toons he says some stupid things

Thank you for at least acknowledging in the comments that the Council exists

"there is no such thing as a "British Fish", that implication is a red herring." goddamn I love lame dad jokes...

Three Arrows you’re weilcome

Brexit is freedom


being in the EU was getting rid of one layer of UK rules. because the EU is balanced, money people in the UK didnt like it. so here is the fish and chips guy from Eton, to tell you more about whats good for you.

The fish quotas are a great idea - in Canada, the province of Newfoundland somehow managed to fish every edible species off its coast into extinction in the name of creating jobs (which now obviously no longer exist).

Should the UK leave the EU. It was a simple question. The UK voted to leave, the UK will be free to trade with anyone it wants, you are not allowed to trade globally while in the EU. I am a bit confused why you want people to stay in an increasingly federal political union. Apparently the UK isn't allowed independence like any nation in the world is.

What's your opinion on George Galloway?

I want to vomit every time one of these conservative politicians says "believe me, I know." I want to say, "don't try to gaslight us, you haven't figured this out any more than anyone else."

Love these videos, keep up the good work!

farage, the son of a stockbroker, who's only jobs have been...... being a stockbroker... and..... being a European Member Of Parliament, complains that European Members Of Parliament are out-of-touch elites who have never done a real day's work in their lives

Pager is a media terrorist.

Great video, but 4 demerits for NOT mentioning that Nigel Farage was a British MEP who presumably went to the EU to fight for British interests despite his opposition to the entire enterprise. Now if you've seen his finally point about fisheries then has to mentioned. While there Nigel sat on the EU fisheries council. Guess how often he attended during a term spanning several years...ONCE! What a fucking hack.

And the bearocrats in British parliament have been telling people all over the world how they should and shouldn't buy and sell.

(5'') Does anyone know if the call for sovereignty could be associated to the sovereignty to maintain tax havens should EU ever develop standards for all members to request minimum taxes. Check 'City of London' 'Freeman of the City of London' 'Doomsday Book' 'The Corporation'

This comments section is terrifying


You say that countries join because it benefits them, but most countries newer had a referendum to join. The politicians just decided to join (except denmark and norway, and norway said no)

Isn’t the eu part of the reason Europe hasn’t really been at war with one another since WW2?

+Ester Johannessen"this is a union whose laws overrules countries counstitutions". National parliaments agree to that when they enter. You talk as if the EU is something that is being done TO countries. Those countries are partners in running the EU and they all help write its laws.

+Josefine Nilsson That is right, but this is a union whose laws overrules countries counstitutions. And for a lot of countries the EU stands in oposition to countries independence as stated in most counstitutions. Of course the laws differ from country to country, but this isnt just politicians passing another law.

That is what representative democracy is. You elect politicians to make decisions on your behalf. I don't see how not having referendums means there are no benefits to membership? National parliaments obviously decide to join because they expect their countries to benefit from it.

So he likes nations and borders, yet he dismisses Irish, Scottish and Welsh nationalists as "fake nationalities"?

The UK government isn't bloated. It accomplishes much more than American governments, without much more money.

Their videos are often flawed, but sometimes their content holds a great deal of truth in the cryptic agendas, like all politically motivated informers, including yourself.

what's your opinion on angry foreigner?

Nigel Farage will destroy the EU from within. Respect the will of the people. Sign the UK open petition for a no deal Brexit 364,269 MBGA

It appears to have escaped your notice that when Britain leaves the European Union then so does Nigel Farage. A bit difficult to destroy something from within if you are outside it, wouldn't you say, comrade!

You forget that the EU's funds don't come out of the blue. They come from the member states themselves.

Seeing how orderly your sources are presented below the video makes me happy :)

Nigel farage has very kickable teeth

As my Scottish coworker elegantly put it: "Supporters of Brexit are under the illusion that Britain is still an empire.... or a closet racist"

Eh, for whatever fair points you may have made, tossing shade at Tommy Robinson really is a deal-breaker for me. Whatever bias is tossed in for entertainment in here really isn't for me. Have a good day and good luck on your endeavors. Woosh.

7:30 the European Paliamt can not propose laws, they aren't the ones making the regulations, the European comission is and the lobbists advising it. Many members of the European Commission are former Goldman Sachs Bankers. Also Trade agreement like TTIP or EPA were already terrible, I don't know how you could make them worse

Pro EU propaganda video.

Uhh, you're commenting on a video reviewing PragerU and calling IT the propaganda? Sure mate.

2:40 furthering economic development. I wouldn't call farming subsidies for inefficient French farmers economic development.

after trying to listen to Tim Pool on Joe Rogan's podcast, your voice (of reason) is like a detox session.

Crusade video yes very exciting. I expect a small portion of it to be about Roland being sent home on his shield.

hmm i was actually expecting pragerU to tell me something about "certain foreign elements" that have it to easy to come to britian becuause of the EU which are not combatible with "the culture"

I don't believe in a EU future the way it is developing now, I don't want a European Federation. It is inevitable the EU will go down that path in my view. Some sort of decentralization will be the better way in my opinion. That being said, your videos are great for tempering my natural views, keep it up.

So you want transnational socialism with a powerless parliament. That sounds a lot like a 21st century Soviet Union. The effects of global capitalism on a patchwork of city states doesn't seem so nightmarish in comparison.

good one mate

Nurture it like some sort of RageBaby is now cannon.

Of course PargerU would bring a UKIP dude lol. Their propaganda machine never ceases to amaze me with how disingenuous is it.

"Hi, I'm so and so, and I was a representative of the UK in the EU". "Those faceless bureaucrats deciding things in the EU". Can't have it both ways Nigel.

Pompous response to Farage defense of Brexit is irrelevant. Use your time to address the tyrannical grip that German trade surpluses and immigration policies have on Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Greek, Cypriot, and rural French underemployment, unemployment, and culture. Brits are getting out of the EU while the gettin is good.

why does the pragerU video feel like its made for toddlers? like? watching it makes u feel rly rly stupid

How can someone (Nigel) be so ignorant about things necessary to perform his job since most of this info can be easily found anyway?

He's not ignorant. He knows all this. He's intentionally lying.

The British Parliament had a statute in place prior to joining the EU, which stated that never shall any extrinsic body, state, court or institution of any kind, have authority over the British Parliament. It had been in place for hundreds of years, and it was removed as a matter of constitutional procedure before entry to the EEC was possible. Say what you like about PragerU, how the Commission or European Council operates in terms of their treaties of subsidiarity; membership of the EU by definition is a diminution of parliamentary sovereignty where the nation in question joins in a legislative context referred to as the 'multilateral' rules based order and is subject to the bureaucratic procedures of the wider order as a whole.

I don't know what I enjoyed more: the red herring pun or how much you yourself seemed to relish in it. :)) Great video as always, cheers!

Oh my days, you cannot fully understand how much many of us in the UK loathe this bloviating cockwomble. Great analysis as always.

You are an arrogant pedant

Ah, Anti-Freedom video. We live in a Fabian Socialist superstate, funnily enough brought to you by Posh elitist Brit pricks. The EU is another monarchist empire.

The UK is literally one of those monarchies. So you tell me. How much influence do the Royals have on the EU? Europe is mostly republics, I mean, yeah, Spain and Luxuemborg, Belgium, Denmark, but if I'm gonna be honest, I can't name a single living monarch of any country in Europe EXCEPT the UK's. I make no effort, and yet I know the names of multiple members of the royal family. I truly would find it remarkable if other monarchs have any more influence in the EU than the UK royal family. If you're worried about 'monarchists', the EU isn't your enemy. The royals are. And if you're doing 'brexit' to avoid monarchists, well... yep, still baffled by what on earth brexiters want.

+Killua2001 how many Monarchies in the EU, you honestly think these people wield no power and gave everything up?

... What? Monarchist? The hell? From what I can tell, the EU very much resembles the US around the founding of the constitution. The 'public' (land owning white men) only got to vote for the house of representatives. It wasn't a very 'democratic' republic, but you'd be very very hard pressed to describe it as anything but 'a republic'. The UK itself is far, far more monarchist, in principle and practice, than the EU. And I'd bet a good number of the people who support the Monarchy also happen to be pro-Brexit. But I have a different question for you. What do you want? Where do you want a boarder check? Do you want one between North Ireland and Ireland? Do you want one between North Ireland and the rest of the UK? Or do you want none at all? If the first, does that mean you're fine breaking the Good Friday Agreement? Do you think the people of North Ireland would be particularly happy with that? Shouldn't their views matter more since they are, after all, more directly affected. If you want a boarder between North Ireland and the rest of the UK, am I to assume that means you're ok with having UK created goods have to be imported into the UK all within its own territory? Does this also not require effectively ceeding regulatory control over all of North Ireland to the EU anyway? One where the UK would have little input on, unless they, well, violate the good friday agreement. And if you want no hard boarder at all... then.. well... how? Leaving the EU but keeping no boarder requires accepting free movement and staying in the customs union, which means the UK would have dropped their representation for no effective change in what it's required to do. The only alternative to all of that appears to be 'don't leave the EU'. But that leaves me perpetually confused what 'brexiters' actually really want. What is 'brexit', cause as things stand, it looks very much like the UK is going to jump off a very dangerous looking cliff, for no apparent reason.

What do you think about Lexit?

Farage hates the EU so much that he can barely stop himself from trousering their cash, whether he's entitled to it or not. Good stuff, Daniel, thank you.

I believe you are the most insightful person on the internet. Thank you for presenting this article in a well read and thoughtful manner.

I say if the UK wants to leave the EU I don't care. Why the hell is the pragerU vid even targeted at Americans. I don't speak for all Americans but i don't think we as a people care. maybe this political party or that one dose care but i don't think the average American dose.

Brexit, Trump's election, extremist shitshows, and many other idiotic things happening show the weakness of democratic states. People who don't play by the rules and peddle their ideas as facts will always have a good chance of gaining support since they'll always tell you what you what to hear and not the truth. Willfully spreading disinformation in a public sphere should have legal consequences on the platforms helping spread it and especially on the individual doing it. The annoying part is that a lot of companies help in promoting disinformation and they aren't liable, even worse, they oppose any regulations by yelling CENSORSHIP and having their users go bezerk on governments. Look at Article 13 in the EU, all major platforms are crying like crazy against it since it forces them to regulate their platforms against intellectual property theft. Long story short, the governments should fight against disinformation with the law and not just with facts.

The audacity of a millionaire who has styled himself as an 'everyman' calling it a conspiracy of the elites

Can't we all just agree that Brexit will be a good thing overall? Not to the UK. It will basically destroy the UK and quite likely make Scotland leave it and also re-trigger civil war in Ireland. But for the rest of the EU and also the world, it will mean that UK won't be able to strong arm the EU by vetoing environmental issues and all the progressive economic policies the EU tried to implement over the years but failed thanks to the UK and its insistence of being a world power just because it once had an empire it mismanaged into oblivion.

The difference between EU Commissioners and Parliamentary Ministers that you omitted is very important. To become a minister you have to first be elected by the people to parliament and then the government appoints you to a ministerial position. EU Commissioners are never elected by any member of the public.

The Red Herring transition was beautiful

"self important, overpaid, social engineers with useless degrees who have never done a proper days work" *Get this man a mirror*

I would actually be interested in a profound critique of the EU in its current state. It seems like who opposes the nationalist right must be pro-EU regardless of its flaws, but I think this position is very much questionable. I think there are some valid criticisms to be made, especially in the realm of the fiscal policies.

You told a joke! I KNEW you weren't really German!

The most comprehensive challenge to the myth of Brexit I’ve seen. Thanks!

states rights! wait, wut.

90 seconds in, and i'm already in agony.

Tommy Robinson a racist fraudster.... There goes all your credibility in just one sentence. And here I thought that finally a leftie that is capable of forming actual arguments rather than going with the usual personal attacks and strohmanns. But I guess in modern leftist thought researching subjects is not a requirement, you just run with what your social hugbox says.

19:32 your laugh is so cute :3

brexit means bigger government

2:00 you under-educated idiot, the IS a bloated nepotistic bureaucracy. The EU is a kleptocracy. I've worked with EU grants for 3 years and it is my personal experience that most of the money is funneled into the wallets of the political class. In Hungary about 1 in 7 Euros spent by the EU go towards actual projects and the remaining 6 land in the pockets of the crony capitalists. Nigel is absolutely right when he says that the EU is a horrorshow.

The U is short for Unsourced

But but but mu emprie!

Canadian viewer here. We have several layers of government. First is Municipal, then is Provincial (or Territorial for Yukon, NWT and Nunavit), third is federal, and then we still answer to the British Monarchy. Well, British Monarchy and whoever is President south of the border--as I'm not certain if anybody mentioned, the Americans have some political clout in the world. Oh right... and that is without taking into account the Reservations and Treatie locations here with the First Nations people. Though, usually nobody ever gives a crap what First Nations people have to say. I'm Triracial, my Grandfather grew up in Rupert's Land and was in the British Airforce between The Great War and that unnecessary sequel they made to try to cash in on the franchise. My first language is Cree... and if Brexit is looking for sympathy from me, they can find it in the dictionary between shit and syphilis. Every one of their arguments is ridiculous nonsense where they play up ridiculous narratives and play up ridiculous fantasies and wild tales and stories. In the case of "The Travelling Circus" he is literally arguing against a practice that is designed to keep on area of the EU from having all the power--because he is worried that the UK won't have all the power. I say: ADD MORE CITIES to that circuit. Have the Capital be constantly moving throughout the year. By having the Capital mobile, it will not result in a single location gaining more power from it than the others. Literally every one of his arguments he is either making up a fictional story on the spot--or just taking a scary looking graph, scrubbing the information from it--taking a couple columns and keeping the title. Seriously... I mean... my fucking gog.

What is a fake university? How far do you have to live in leftist thought to believe that all rights and institutions exist by the will of the all-mighty state?

Mr. Faranges' description of an "elite" ironically sounds like a description of himself.

4:31 What do you mean non-binding? In my ballot paper it said "the government will implement what you decide".

19:30 tbh that was too good of a pun to left out.

Hey at least they triggered the libs, right?... That was.. Worth it?

People who debunk this regular shoveled garbage from PragurU are a godsend to the people. I'm getting really sick of this right-wing nutjob propaganda.

"I'll take the good sense of an Italian farmer or a French baker over the arid intellectualism of an EU Bureaucrat any day." Not even 5 minutes prior, "Believe me-I know, because for seventeen years, I've represented South East England as a member of the European Parliament, the EU's legislative body." I have to admit, he does make a compelling argument there.

I realize you had to do tons of research to make this video. No wonder left tube can't churn out as many short, attention grabbing videos as right tube. Also fuck right tube

Wow... The parallel between “big and small government” made at the beginning of this made me realize something: The conservative rhetoric behind Brexit mirrors Republican “big government is bad” rhetoric, only applied to entire countries rather than “sovereign states.” With that framework it’s no wonder far-right conservatives and extremists hate the EU so much. You would think the success of the United States (emphasis on the word “United”) would wizen them up to the whole “stronger together” idea. Oh well; they are nothing if not tenacious in defending their beliefs, misguided though they are. And if an economic superpower like Britain is having this much trouble negotiating its leaving the EU, a political body which has only existed for a matter of decades... I just... I’m gonna laugh REALLY hard the next time Texas starts in again with their whole “we’ll secede from the US” bulls@&$.

"21st Century Socialism, requires trans-national cooperation" Which is required to fight "Global Capitalism" 1. What is 21st century Socialism and how does it compare to previous attempts? 2. Why does 21st century Socialism *require* trans-nationalism? 3. What is Global Capitalism and how is it different from Capitalism? 4. Why is 21st century Socialism better or worse than Global Capitalism? 5. Why does Global Capitalism *need* to be replaced at all? 6. How is trans-nationalism not just the modern version of imperialist colonialism but with the explicit goal of erasing the affected nations and cultures in favor of a new overarching nation and culture? I hope one of these questions spawns a video response.

PragerU in itself is a horror show.

This video is like a breath of fresh air. More people need to see this especially now when fake news and propaganda has reached new levels. Thank you for posting something about Brexit. It was long overdue.

I still can't forget the first pragerU video I've ever seen. A targeted add in which dennis talks about how kids these days aren't as willing to drown puppies as the older generation, and that we need to return to good christian values so that more people would be fine with drowning a puppy. That shit was weird, yo.

Welcome back Arrows senpai

Excellent video thanks! :)

Isn't rabble rousing for a referendum the core of democracy though?

Red herring *groan*. Personally I hope I never hear the word brexit ever ever again but we all know that for the next decade whichever government is in they will be able to blame anything and everything on brexit. Homelessness BREXIT. Inflation BREXIT. Weak pound BREXIT. Haemerroids BREXIT. Stepped in some dogshit BREXIT. *sighs* Well the people have spoken and we live in a democracy so that is that hopefully.

Farage's arguments *should be* wholly unconvincing to any and all Americans considering that what he is describing is what we literally have here. A Belgian telling a Brit how much they can charge? sounds like a Texan telling a New Yorker just the same. Two big governments? That is literally federalism and our system of governance. Freedom of movement, trade, etc? That's instilled in our constitution.

I'm sorry, I just can't stand looking at Nigel Farage for 26 minutes. You guys go on without me

Love when I'm trying to get conservative american's to my side by disparaging the american concept of federalism, lol.

The big upside to Brexit, from my point of view, is that it makes US politics seem slightly less dysfunctional in comparison. We still have it worse, but at least someone else is in the same ballpark.

Is it possible that in the Evolutionary Meta-Niches, Red Herrings are having a population boom?

I rolled my eyes so hard at that red herring pun LOL


ugh I didn't realise I'd have to look at nigel farage so much when I clicked this

Damn my boy did a pun

I got accepted into NASA as soon as I showed them my PragerU degree

Nigel is speaking to American audiences. He said fries instead of chips. And then he slipped up and said lorry instead of truck. Most Americans don't know what a lorry is.

Also, the EU Commission president is appointed by the European Council (which contains heads of state that are elected by people or appointed) and is elected by the European Parliament (which is elected by the people). So, Nigel is, unsurprisingly, wrong.

I support Cobyn and given what happened to Greece when they attempted to break with capitalist dogma, i'm glad we're leaving. A Corbyn government would offer solutions that the EU would just obstruct. Tony Benn was always opposed to the EU too and just saw it as a neo liberal project and he understood that internationalism and "trans-national cooperation" are simply not one and the same thing.

I think you should edit and reupload the video before the majority share of the internet that dont read things starts blaming you for shit.

what (american)

Common European sense? So much for cultures since the E.u gets to decide what other countries do. They actually make laws. No they are smal says the maggot narrating 3 arrows

+Joe Morrell They would have been stuck between third world and poverty.

+brinbrin62 62200 Was your father alive during WW2?

Question for you... When the EU was forming, what would have happened to a country like Malta (who is almost entirely dependant on foreign trade to survive) if they had not joined? Economically speaking, what would the repercussions have been?

In the UK, the far-left is largely against the EU as they think it is too capitalist. Jeremy Corbyn, the most left-wing leader of the Labour party in 40 years, has been against the EU his whole political career, and only campaigned for Remain (half-heartedly) because of pressure from the more moderate elements of his party. Governments of EU member states range from democratic socialist to very right-wing. The EU isn't forcing countries to be left wing or right wing, that's for the voters of those countries to decide.

+ThobiWan The idea of liberal free market democracy is dead -businesses being run like small dictator countries have seen to that. There are now two solutions to move forward. Socialism or barbarism.

You did pretty well up until advertising for International Socialism and fighting capitalism as the great goal for Europe. I very much you're wrong about that being the goal for Europe. The idea of millions of people slaughtered in your socialist wet dream, is a nightmare for any sane person. I really hope you're wrong, but you've made me somewhat scared of the EU now. Whatever happened to dream of the free market in common liberal democracy?!

Hey Three Arrows! just wanted to ask if you could do a video on your idea of 21st century socialism, and EU solutions?

I have a question. In the end of the video you state that you fight for Socialism, but this seems to me the biggest problem with the EU. Socialism and economic system, in addition to article 13. Those are my top 3 problems and the reason I am praying (metaphorically, Atheist here) for the EU to be destroyed.

The European Union is doomed to eventually fail. Brexit is good. UK showed the way. I'd be honored it be my country, France, to go next, or my father's homeland, Italy.

Thomas Jess yes, I saw that one but I was hoping for another one on another topic

+Imani Scott He did make one video about Ben Shapiro's video on gun control.

You can't imagine how rich it is to hear a British politician talk about "sovereignty" as someone from one of the British Overseas Territories.

He hates the European Union so much that he spent his whole career trying to work for it?

Ironic that Nigel will call the EU a circus, while being the ring master of the biggest circus in Europe.

19:17 how much is the fish exactly?

souvereignty is being ruled over. it is NOT about freedom. just about the squabbles between tyrants.

_"Britain isn't an empire any more"_ Careful. You'll find the the average brexiteer is physiologically incapable of hearing those words. They are physically missing the ear and brain tissue required to hear the words/understand the concept.

Still, the EU is a neoliberal organisation created to promote free-market capitalism throughout Europe. As a Spaniard I know the damage the EU has done in here. First, prior to joining, one of our prerequisites was an ‘industrial reorganisation’. What did this mean? The rape of the Spanish industrial heartland and the massacre of its agriculture so it could not compete with French or German products. Thousands of businesses were privatised and millions of livestock were killed, the agricultural land being sold off to major landowners. We went from being an emerging industrial powerhouse to being the bathroom of Europe, where they just come to drink, party and stain our streets with vomit. We depend on tourism, and when the crisis came, we were hit hard. The EU forces privatisations and major budget cuts in the interests of the unfair and unjust loans owed to major banks. It is a way of making sure Europe stays as a free market paradise for capitalists. Now, it is forcing the privatisation of our public transport, our trains. Coincidentally, SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de Ferre) and Deutsche Bahn are interested in this new opportunity to expand their markets. To add insult to injury, the EU supports a federal Spain, broken up by bourgeois nationalists and it is unwilling to aid us in recovering our occupied territories in Gibraltar (which serves as a military base for Great Britain, as a smuggler base for tobacco and as a way to steal Spanish waters for fishing, living and patrolling). The EU serves the interests of big industrialists and big bankers, it is a bourgeois structure which must be dismantled. I am not against European cooperation but I am against an alliance of European bourgeois.

I really do like your content but, I think it should be mentioned that the eu is making brexit as punishing and unpleasant for the Brits as possible hence making any economic or sovereign benefit negligible, . Brussels is making an example of England so as to discourage any such behaviour from other eu member states.

Nigel Farage is about as in touch with the common working man, as my grandmother is up-to-speed about the latest internet meme. The same can be said about many other politicians, though, so I guess he fits right in.

as if the french economy depends on a couple of lorry rides. ridiculous. if you care so much about fishlaw, stay away from faroer then. or africa. don't get me started on africa. 1. yeah the whole brussel/strasbourg situation is BS. 2. why you still have paper in your office? these days you just take your laptop and pick up business the next morning no matter where in the world. improve on efficiency. more BS...don't wanna write anymore. you covered much, great job, great analysis. wish more people would watch this. I hope the UK have fun finding their place inbetween the EU, the US, INDIA, CHINA, and let scotland go, because they would like to rejoin.

when you call "chips" "fries", you know it's shilling for the US mindset.

STAHP IT! You're making too much sense!

Not everyone who voted for Brexit is racist, but every racist voted for Brexit.

Farage was recently refused a German passport, trying to use his brother in law's address in Hamburg...

20% of the fish in British waters is a colossal amount and completely unsustainable.

Comment section is awful, when will you all grow up?

Farage hardly actually ever represented the UK IN THE EU. HE NEVER TURNED UP UNLESS THE CAMERAS WERE ON.

I absoultely hate this bastard of a man. He does'nt care about the people, hes just another rich conservative snob

8:18 ooooooooffff course

Typical, another salty kraut angry because Deutschland has lost a slice of it's European empire. Britain will be the first to leave, but it won't be the last.

You have to understand that a unified Europe is America's biggest fear. It's saddening how our glorious continent won't realize it.

If you've ever been to Strassbourg I think you'd say Parliament should stay there. Far better building.

To be fair, Farage seems to be talking about civil servants. The stupid part is that he think social engineering is a bad thing. If civil servants weren't around your laws would be worse. They would be based less on research and more on political whim making countries more susceptible to fascism.

The E.U wants an Army. Typical leftist filth coming from 3 arrows

So this moron argues about carbon emission from that "circus" and lately propagates ovefishing?

Farage doesn't give a shit about carbon emissions. He just sees an opportunity for a cheap jab 'Oh, you care about the environment? Why do you keep doing stuff then? Why don't you like in a cave like a true eco-warrior?'


Thank you for making this video xx

You forgot about the "European Army." It's purpose and and who's going to pay for it if we already have NATO. BTW, shouldn't the EU exist as just an economy block (well, check with Greece and Italy - more arguments), looks like it has became not just a political and now going to be a military block as well?

+Cory Fice and @Nathaniel Claw. As an EU citizen, it will be your own money through taxes that is going into NATO and now an EU Army as well yes? Perhaps you can create money from your own ass? - No one is stopping you to pay more taxes

+Nathaniel Claw He doesn't have a point he's just talking out of his ass.

+Leon You do know every nato country also spends their own money on nato right? In fact they are to increase it to 2% as the new rule, so what is your point?

+ProfessorEGadd oh nothing wrong at all, as long as you're willing to fund the formation and maintenance of your EU army

NATO is US-led. Is there anything wrong with a mutual self-defence clause like NATO's, but without the US in charge?

This video doesn't debunk anything, Your video just says "yes they are correct but i don't like it whaaa"

Ragebaby- three arrows 2019

I hate Farage and Prageru, but I have to admit that "Eurocrat" is a pretty good pun

'Anger is a gift' - RATM

Brexit is a giant con. PragerU is a con. What is wrong with so many people?

Be Scottish. Vote for Scottish independence in 2014, lose by 5%. Vote for SNP at 2015 general election, SNP win over 50% of the vote, win all but 1 of Scottish seats. Vote for SNP at 2016 Scottish elections, get 46% of the constituency vote. Vote to REMAIN in 2016 brexit referendum, Scotland votes 62% to REMAIN. UK vote loses by 1.8%. Now be a very angry Scottish person. Now look ahead and see that the UK government is just going to rest its foot on Scotlands neck for the next 10 years, they need do nothing more. Be Scottish, hear talk of DEMOCRACY and REPRESENTATION from the brexiteers. Of supra national organisations that crush small members. Be very, very, very angry Scottish.

The attacks of Farage has made the EU more united.

Why do the presenters on these Prager Poo vids come across as so smarmy?

Ah yes. Good old nationalism. It teaches you to be proud of things you haven't done and hate people you've never met. The UK is quickly becoming an autocracy like Hungary , USA and Poland. It's very unpleasant to watch. The UK is the biggest monolithic, centralised country in Europe. It has an archaic voting system in which you have to vote for party who you don't want so party you don't want can't get in. That's not democracy. That's Hobson's choice. Twittering on about sovereignty and how undemocratic the EU is, is the kettle calling the pot black. And while the government is doing the hokey cokey with EU membership and wallowing in delusions of economic grandeur, the UK will remain economically divided and in a permanent state of misery because of the government's economic and political agenda which has not changed since membership of the EU and will not change after leaving. Referendums are just a political tool politicians use to put a stamp of popular legitimacy on something the government intends to do anyway. Look at how many the UK and EU have already had! The total neglect of manufacturing and over-development of the financial sector is what has destroyed the UK not the EU. Brexit will just facilitate the financial sector to carry on regardless. Obviously, the EU trying to legislate regulation of the banking system to stop them being run like casinos and oblige multinational corporations to honor their fiscal obligations does not sit well with the government's plans to attract businesses by making the UK a tax haven free-for-all. That is the reason behind Brexit. Financial gombeenism. The value of sterling has fallen already 30% since the banking crash in 2008 which was created by the subprime mortgages scandal in UK,  USA and Ireland. Look at the facts: UK has the most regionally unbalanced economy in Europe. Productivity is on its arse, with stagnant wages, endless fiscal deficits and austerity measures as a result. The deindustrialised areas of Britain are trapped with a pathetic  infrastructure, low investment and skills. Added to that is miserable investment in R&D which means that UK cannot make enough goods and services that the rest of the world wants to buy anyway. Real economic  growth comes from technologies. That's why Finland, German  and the other Scandinavians are doing so well. All the big plans the government is twittering on about  cannot be realised without innovation. The pathetic attempts to stimulate innovation through business tax reductions and making UK a profitable place to do business does not cut the mustard.  Of course,  bad habits are hard to break.  Endless low interest rates and quantitative easing has rocketed the amount of personal debt to 147%  and exacerbated the situation. The incompetence in handling fiscal policy by cutting spending in 2010 instead of increasing its deficit has destroyed productive capacity and made households between £4000 and £13000 worse off. Not to mention the misery, hunger, homelessness  and even death the spending cuts have caused to the poorest members of society. Leaving the EU is not going to change anything. It's time for the UK government get of it's high horse and take a long hard look at itself. Or at least come clean about it's TRUE intentions behind leaving the EU. So the government wants to leave.  Then do so, without making such a song and dance about it.  Behaving like a petulant child is not the answer.  It's undignified and embarrassing.

Prager U: The largest example of how to make an argument of nothing but logical fallacies and disingenuous arguments.

Brexit helps only, CHINA, USA and other competing countries! Britain will suffer, enormous!

A german supporting the fourth european reich, how surprising...

Hilariously sad the Britain just assured itself to cease to be the most powerful European country in the long term. Alienating your neighboring countries and ensuring that trade with you is more difficult than alternative partners is not a recipe for success.

Farange should be arrested for Treason and executed.

Can you imagine a state having 2 governments? Like having it's own state government then an overarching federal government on top of that? What a concept! I can't even fathom who would think of something like that. Something something state's rights.

PragerU. The blog that thinks its a University. Nigel Farage. The idiot who thought he was a Politician.

Excellent take down, the hypocrisy in this world maddens me

NIgel Farage's "arguments" before the Brexit vote were to appeal to people's emotions, not a reasoned analysis, which were proved to be simply wrong and amounted to scaremongering.The post Brexit mayhem has him hiding his face in UK, having no idea how to proceed post Brexit and reduced to selling his services to fake "think tank"s like PragerU.

a literal """red herring"""

Wait wait wait. Didn't England's voters choose to leave the EU? Wasn't it their decision? I don't think they were hypnotized and voted against their own will. I thought this video glibly glossed over that. The actual vote. Am I wrong? I'm open to the possibility that I am.

Brilliant video. It's always fun to point out that Farage as a member of the European Parliament fisheries commitee attended 1 out of 42 meetings to further British fishing interests.

Thanks for showing Farage as the conman he is.

The problem is not the "right" propaganda, i see the problem in cherry pick and lies about the sources and "facts"

if big gov sucks why would you want two big gov? moral of story big gov sucks vote tax cuts for the rich

its funny because americans already live under two governments

I know there’s no way you’re going to read this, let alone respond, but I had a quick question. I’m an American, and despite you being a (German I think) I still feel like I can connect to and understand your videos. My questions is, what is your target audience? Do you have a more European focus, a universal one, or are your videos just so well made that they resonate with everyone?

What is 21st Century Socialism?

The question is, does Farage know all this or not? If he doesn't, he's incompetent; if he does, he's dishonest.

You make it really hard to give that thumbs up sometimes, Three Arrows. Knowing I'm going to have to stomach a bunch of crapola clips from PragerU. It's like, yeah the roller coaster was fun, but I feel queasy nonetheless. Thumbs up.

I'm British so by this point the word sovereignty is hilarious to me. Just the best joke you could tell.

Facts are irrelevant when you have an agenda to serve.

Thanks for the quip about "whatever he calls himself these days" right after calling himself the only other thing he ever called himself then a random name immediately afterwards. Such a statement is the clearest display that you are not arguing in a place where good rules of logic or addressing real concerns matter. Saved me lots of wasted minutes there. So many that I even had time to thank you for saving me time.

I feel like Three Arrows' arguments come down to 'gotchas'. He never fulling explains his arguments, he just tries to poke holes in his opponents. That's fine, I guess, but it doesn't show he has a good grasp of the topic. He just does research on what other have said and if anything doesn't line up to the letter, he makes a video saying he's debunked and proven his opponents wrong. Pseudo intellectual is thrown around a lot, but I think it fits him perfectly. For a better understanding of brexit and how it will effect Britain, I'd suggest looking into Sargon's Videos on it. vxcaxweRZYM

As an American, from and within America, I know my opinion is automatically more advanced than most other countries, so I'll weigh in and say that Brexit is a bad idea, because look what happened to the Southern US when they tried to leave that Union. They turned racist and lost their educations. That's right, shocking I know. I'm surprised more people have not made this obvious connection, particularly more Americans (though they can be know it all sometimes, I don't even think they know what they're talking about, but they're so far from self aware it's scary).

Wouldn't it be pretty ironic, if the UK broke appart, because Scotland wants to stay in the EU?

Well your reality that is, which is fueled by drugs and leftest propaganda

NF. The giant douche canoe who ran away from doing the hard work of negotiating out of the EU to maintain the fantasy that nothing will ever ever be his fault.

I wonder how much my country gives to the EU? (Note: I'm in the US.) Also, as an American, I actually am really interested in the idea of the EU. It seems like how America went from a union of thirteen states to the big country it is now. I hope something similar happens with the EU, especially as the options are a) become the United States of Europe, b) stay sucking up to my country (to be fair, we treat you better than, say, we treated the Phillipines or Latin America, but that could easily change) or c) switch from working to the US to working for Russia/China.

This video has changed my mind. I now want to remain.

For those of you who may of forgotten, almost half of us in the UK and probably more by now (seeing as one of the most popular search terms AFTER the referendum was "what is the EU?"), did not want to leave the EU. We are going to live through some real consequences and financial/social burdens for the statistically lower educated populations questionable views on sovereignty. So please remember that bashing those of us in the UK all with same brush is uncalled for. The real comedy is, when we do inevitably stabilise after this error of societal ignorance, largely off the backs of the most vulnerable in a way that makes the current austerity look like a holiday, you will have some Brexiters pop up and shout "See, told you we would be fine!" Not like we could of just avoided all this by, oh I don't know, staying in the EU

Question: Someone pointed out how the EU is basically united under the equivalent of the American Articles of Confederation, not an actual full Constitution?

Yes. There was an attempt to give the EU a constitution which was however vetoed per referendum by France.


I like Nigel a lot and I think Brexit could’ve been done good but it’s been horribly botched

When I flew from America to India via Europe I noted how little distance there was between England and Netherlands. The idea the North Sea fish are UK is absurd.

+Leigh White so you shoot your own leg because you are tired of being called racist? Cant say it is very justified

TravistheHuman sorry. That comment was meant for someone else , one too many shandies as we say in the uk !

+Leigh White I can why you would say that, but racist isn't the worse thing to call a person.

TravistheHuman you don’t get it do you Brexit was Party down to people getting pissed of with being called racist, , racist is a wordSJWs use when they’ve lost the debate ,

From the US to across the pond, scary brown people never fails as a political tactic.

Nigel farage has got to be one of the biggest fuckwitts of the century thus far, he's setting a benchmark for the next 80 years of 21st century fuckwitts. Hope he dies violently.

Surprise surprise a german man disagrees with brexit

As far as "big government" is concerned, imagine having each member its own regulative body for aviation, food safety, drugs (medicine), environmental standards etc. and having to coordinate their regulations with everybody else ... That's why European non-member (like Switzerland and Norway) states simply copy many EU regulations and swallow the pill that they didn't have a say in its making.

"I was the leader of UKIP" Maybe don't say that so loud bud, the joke party won more seats in the recent election than UKIP

I almost wonder if there were people in England that thought if they made as if they were going to leave the EU the EU would make a bunch of changes to accommodate them and try to keep them, the way Iceland threatened to leave NATO, and then England could just be like OK we'll stay. Then the time came and the EU was like bye felicia and suddenly England is getting the gin sweats. Also, I bet with England gone the EU as a whole may be weaker, but certain countries will be bigger fish in a smaller pond and are fine with the departure. I really look forward to any videos you are making about the crusades, it's a fascinating, vicious time in history. Please point out how silly the words "saracen" and "franj" are and tell the story of Prester John.

always hatdt prager snd condervstives.

Omg I laughed so bad when he said spoke of the cod wars and iceland

LoL big government -> directed at Americans as propaganda What the hell? May just be an appeal to common values directed at hmm Idk libertarians, classical liberals and free market conservatives? But thats just a stupid hypothesis what do I know and yes, pointing to common values = propaganda thats sound reasoning

No, Brits don't use the words "big government", but yes we do have a term for it. It's called a "nanny state". It is also perjorative, but it is not used as much in the states as it is in the UK, so it only made sense that when being shown to an American audience they'd use the equivalent term.

Three Arrows! You also forgot that Nigel Farage didn't lead the UK effort to leave the EU as he claims. His campaign was overtaken by and they were the face of the Brexit campaign on the leave side. Y'know the one with Aaron Banks that definitely didn't commit electoral fraud.

You know I spent most of this video feeling kind of weird, cause most of what you were saying about Brexit is true, but you said it like it was a bad thing. Then at the end you called for socialism and an end to capitalism, then it all clicked. God I thought my friends were joking when they said Europeans have no sense of personal liberty, but here we are I guess. Then again, considering you Germans are the ones to have lived under absolute monarchy for hundreds of years only to have them replaced with one of the worst dictators in human history, I don't know what I should have expected.

Hear Hear a Yankiee Doddle lectures a European on European affairs.

Well thought through video. Destroying Nigel Farrage's talking points argumentativly.

Good Video


how is it that the Koch brothers are billionaires but can't afford better-looking, less-shitty videos?

So stay in the EU, help each other and become powerful. Seems amazing and great. Not sure why they left, what's happening with you UK?

I like to go channel to channel and see the impact a creator has with their content. Seems to me that your audience is comprised of people who think they are free thinking but yet still are constantly demeaning one another. Safe to say this is a sort of ground zero channel. Mostly it seems your audience is left leaning anti-white. I'm sure you're more than aware of this but it's just an observation. It makes me curious as to why your content draws that particular crowd when your opinion seems to be more level headed.

+ProfessorEGadd thats how People that dont believe in white genocide are called

+ProfessorEGadd I've seen quite a few comments in these videos. But that's just an observation. Not trying to start a flame war here.


I love that there finally is somebody pointing out the hipocrisy in this whole argument against the 'undemocratic comission' while similarly crying about 'let's take our sovreignty back' really proofs that with a bunch of big words like 'sovreignty' 'undemocretic' and 'unelected' you can make people believe anything and rage against anything without having to explain the proper details. The political system of the EU has two values it wants to protect in it's teritoriy. One is Democracy. The other is Sovreignty. Of course people don't seem to understand that in a body such as the EU 100% democracy would always take away from the sovreignty. Sovreignty and Democracy (in no government or organisation not just in the EU) don't go hand in hand, but they have to be balanced against each other. So thanks for finally pointing out what the commission is about. I just hope people see this. Also the seats in PArliament aren't exactly proportional I think.... If they were some countries wouldn'T get the six represetatives they have. That's I think the smallest number of representatives you get, even if a country has a small population. So the EU-parliament vote in a small country counts a lot more than in say France or germany.

I wonder if Prager Diploma can help me get a job? I mean employer must be impressed by my marketable skills.

It's so telling that I have seen many an interview of Farage, and never EVER when speaking to a British audience does he talk about big government. Not even once. Not even a hint of it. He is the ultimate in a lying, swindling politician, that will cater his argument to the fears and prejudices of his audience.

The eu administration cost is so small that they move to strasbourg once a month and spend around 150 million euro a year in doing so.

1:45 "Big government talking point..." Funnily enough, the Big vs Small government argument in America has mostly died since George Bush Jr. was in office. Fiscal conservatism became really unpopular because progressives didn't want to hear that their newest, shiniest social welfare initiative couldn't be afforded under current taxes, and neocons didn't want to hear that we don't have the budget to start ANOTHER war in a country that oh-so-just-happens to be oil rich. Add to that, no one wanted to hear their taxes would have to go up to pay for the fancy social programs AND the flashy boom-boom tanks in the Middle East. So all the fiscally responsible leaders got kicked out of office and everyone else just shrugged their shoulders and have been running up America's credit card bill ever since.

You looked up my university city in the EU website and now I feel validated. Thanks.

your audio is much better from videos I was watching awhile ago

Is herring

Its an issue of whom do you want to control your nation and its international dealings. External and Internal agencies will all have agendas. Does one cede control to organizations that don't have a built in sympathy for the nations they influence? At their peril likely. You don't get control back easily once you give it away. Witness purchase by industry of any essential service provided by a government. If the government wants it back you can be sure it will be at a price that will be punishing.

Tespri...I'm reluctant to be completely honest on this channel for fear of shadow banning. Join me on Jeff Taylor. I regularly dispute and anti-troll the trolls there. JT refuses to censor BTW.

+First Amendment Yeah Three arrows made stupid video about it. It was thoroughly debunked by anyone who has actually read history. Left wing tries to appear morally right, but is in action making morally disgusting laws. This is why they try to avoid nazies being seen as left. They were right wing only when compared to the communists. But if you think about political spectrum. Then calling nazies as far right doesn't make any sense. Since right wing stands for individual liberty, and more right wing you are the more libertarian you are. How come you suddenly become nazi if you go any more right? Most of them probably doesn't even know that most horrifying laws have always been made in name of good.

Tespri....Their utopia is impossible. Everything these days is fascist and censored on the far left. There's another PragerU video these people won't like, that describes how Nazism was born out of fascist far left politics.

+First Amendment they are already demonizing people who aren't far left enough. It's the very nature of the left. Bunch of violent savages who can't get rid of their tribalistic thinking. They don't mind how many individuals they need to slaughter in order to bring about their dystopia

Oh doge... you were actually stupid enough to check EU laws from youtube instead of EU's own page?

After watching this video, it s clear this channel narrater is not living in reality. Thanks for confirming how the EU spends most its money bolstering false economies accross the EU. That definately explains why EU growth continues to increasingly nose dive. BTW, slamming TR does not change the UK stasi like state abuse and the corrupt MSM who are now more activist than journalist You leftarded arrogant chumps, are going to have to face the fact at some point, that the political pendulum passed its peak to the left 3 years ago. Question is, will you demonise everyone not far left enough, or embrace freedom to try and keep the pednulum closer to the centre on the off chance a real (not imaginary) far right movement gets Nazi big?

+Squiddy Squidknacker maybe you do need to say something else, like what specifically is wrong and how

May I say how much I like the term RAGE BABY.

EU and the unelected bureaucrats

The seats in the Council are always held by the ministers of the member state governments, one per state (but with weighted voting power). The Council appoints then appoints commissioners with the approval of the European Parliament.

I think Farage is wrong to say that MEPs can't be removed. I've seen some predictions for the May elections that up to a third of seats could go to the right.

The truth is that the importance of the UK greatly diminished after the Second World War. We've been essentially caught between the US & Europe ever since.

Never let the truth get in the way of a new Pied Piper, leading people into nationalist doom & chaos by lies and populism. Farage is one of those Pied Piper Charlatans.

hello, id like to ask a question related to an idea I had a while back. I was thinking of creating a not-for-profit radio station on ham, Cb and Am that broadcasts nearly exclusively to fox country. The plan would be essentially to create, three stations with the sole purpose of negating misinformed citizenry if they chose to listen in a medium more comfortable to them. It would be separated into three major stations, 1: a northern Virginian station that is directed toward dc, the main station in middle US states and a southern station. We would use the voices that they are most comfortable with and do pieces on local events and the idea behind them with the intent to juxtapose thoughts of individuals to statistics and then that to the areas national image. My question would be that if we were to do this would it help, or cause more harm then good. My personal political ideology is more liberal. but my intentions are more to help everyone I can.

Kick them out!

Brexit DISGUSTS me on so many levels. The motives, reasoning, logistics, effects and what it is indicative of, it ALL makes my insides turn in frustration.

Farage is a con artist the reason why he wants out it's because of the tax evasion law thank you the EU we will find out why Farage refuses to pay his taxes

Why can’t we all be freindsssssssssssssssss

Nigel Farage reminds me of John Bolton, former US "Diplomat" to the UN, only smarmier.

Thank you. The cod wars. The red herring. Just, all of this video. Thank you

Where is the link to the original video?

PragerU animations suck so very hard.


My forking god, picking apart all the wrong in this video would take an even longer video.

13:19 “sheer idiocy” - if only that were true. I think it’s more likely that they are dishonest, amoral opportunists who know exactly what they’re doing.

Frankly, if they don't leave the EU should kick them out and offer membership to an independent Scotland.

I agree with you on most points. Know, that not all right-wingers, are anti-european, for example PiS is actualy the party that pushed Poland on the course to JOIN the EU. And it is still the party that want Poland not only to remain, but also to reform the European Union to become a better place. This is why, the Polish Prime Minister, have said, that it is very sad, that Great britain, will leave the EU. The main problem is that the current EU elites, are not acting in accordance to the interest of the people. But that can change, and leaving the EU by the British, is not helpfull in any way.

9:56 Rolls-Royce, not Mercedes Remember, British is best!

2 big governments? We have been living under it like forever. They are called State government and Federal government. Now tell me something I don't know Mr. Funny accent.

Goddamn you/ love you for making me laugh at the red herring bit.

I can't wait until the next recession when Germany has to shoulder all the weakest economies almost on its own. Then let us compare economies.

Farage is such an odious scumbag. He's currently out doorstepping far right leaders in Italy and Hungary to try to get them to block an extension to Article 50 so we'll be forced to exit at the end of March with no deal – that's to say, the hardest Brexit possible. This is the same person who, along with many other now hard Brexiters, assured us prior to the referendum that we'd be staying in the Single Market – the softest Brexist possible. He's a two-bit con man.

You mentioned the monetary aspect at the end and I agree with that. In the US, all the states us the same currency, but are also under the same government. Whereas in the EU, all the countries use the EU, but are under their own governments, and there are no fiscal transfers between the EU countries, such as Germany and Greece, and it's up to the ECB to try monetary policy here, but any monetary policy can be undone by fiscal policy.

(((PragerU))) literally advocates for open borders (legally) and global free market capitalism, they are your typical establishment conservatives

I would say the more accurate "reality" is that if liberals don't enforce borders, fascists will.

I love how he's complaining about unelected EU officials, when we ourselves have the House of Lords and the Queen (who are unelected)

"I like nations, I like borders" WTF is he even talking about? Seriously....

True, but for a balanced review you should also look at the lies told by the remain side e.g If you vote brexit all your pensions would be gone. Didn't exactly go down well.

I like how after brexit happened everyone got a degree in economics and crystal balls to accurately predict the future. Not only do they fight without reason or evidence but they genuinely believe they are absolutely right, but thats actually called faith not logic. Humans don't ever say hey that sounds logical and makes a whole lot of sense ill believe you. They say hey that suits my predetermined beliefs so I will choose treat this as factual data. This whole thing is only solid proof that humans only accept knowledge that personally benefits their own desires. And with you tube they can pick and choose what "evidence" they choose to agree with... It's absolutely sickening and a testament to what humans truly are. I want to be an independant little island that takes care of its own, without the looming presence of unknown people demanding we follow their rules. That is all, plain and simple, idc what it takes to get there and im prepared to work as a COUNTRY to fix the problems that occur. Infact I welcome it and cant wait to see how people can and will unite together to overcome problems just like how things used to be before we all got to be little snowflakes given everything we want handed to us.

I rest my case

What a lovely fantasy world you live in

Great points, I've heard similar criticism from other Thunderf00t and John Oliver. @three arrows, what are the motives of pro-BREXIT people like Nigel?

The bus and that wasn’t what made the support. The support came from 30 years of abuse from the EU.

Excellent video. I'm dismayed when people call me a remoaner, because I'm not annoyed that 'MY side' lost, I'm annoyed that Britain has lost. I'm sure we can all agree that control over your nations immigration and economic policy is important but unfortunately, I cannot take solace in the fact that 'at least this will improve post Brexit'. As that is a fantasy.

Farage loves Europe so much, he requested citizenship of Germany. Why does he never mention that to the Brits he's abandoning?

With how long the deranged man has been a EU mp and still doesn't know how it works amazes me.

PragerU, where lies go when they're all grown up.

Why are right-wing nationalists claiming to be such big opponents of "the elites", while supporting rich brats like Trump and Nigel? Are they just trying to be "cool" and "rebellious"?

I don't. Many don't. You just see the most obvious ones as they are the loudest.

Article 13 is a real issue though...

Everybody staring in a Prager U Video, instantly looses all of his/her Credebility. You should watch David Rubin Interview with Dennis Prager, it's Quality Garbage.

lol the fish argument... check aaaaand mate!

4:50 Isn't that what happens in Washington DC all the time. Our current president is a new Yorker who has only visited my state (California) a handful of times.

Why are conservatives so eager to see unity fail?

+Dwight K. Schrute No, you said Europe. Now you are moving goal posts because you realized your mistake. A war is a war and there is an on-going war in Europe, less than a decade after the last one ended. They are not anomalies. They are the historical norm, representative of this part of the world. I can tell you are an American, you do not understand this part of world but I did not expect you to either. No, the decisions of peace and prosperity were made in Washington and Moscow, Europeans had nothing to do with it. You do know that EU as it was started, was fomented by the Americans? The Brits did not want to work the the Germans, Germans did not want to work with the French and no one wanted to work with the Italians. It took a good part of the decade of top American diplomacy to get it going. There has been no unification of European economies, much less their cultures which are as different as they have ever been. Some member states still do not enjoy privileges that others do, namely Bulgaria and Romania (the entire East is generally discriminated). How can you speak of unification of European economies when Germany is the only economy that exports more than it imports? How can you talk about economic unification when older member states receive far more generous subsidies despite being richer than the newest members? It's a lie and you believe it.

+Unknown Soldier I was referring to countries that are bound together by the e.u. Why would you include Ukraine, who isn't part of the European union, in a discussion on the merits of the European union? Again, a war that has resulted in such a low number of deaths is NOTHING compared to the millions who have died in the centuries of Europe's senseless fighting and genocides. The peace may have been kept during the cold war, but it took actually uniting Europe's economies, and in some aspects their cultures, to keep a European country from pulling a nazi Germany type move. It's hard to try and ruin another country if your economy will suffer because of it.

+Dwight K. Schrute Wew lad, you asked me about the last war in Europe. I told you - it's on-going. But of course, the Slavs are not Europeans, as per usual. They said literally the same when Serbian fascists were comitting genocide, it took American intervention to stop it. The peace was kept by Soviet and American domination and occupation. The moment those forces were weakened, yes - the Balkan war started. The period between 1994 and 2014 was a historical anomaly, not the new norm.

+Unknown Soldier Ukraine isn't part of the European union though.... Seeing as how the last European war took the lives of tens of thousands on a weekly basis, I think they're doing alright. Europe has been the most peaceful that's it's ever been since the formation of the European Union. The stark difference between 1900-1950 and 1950 to 2019 proves that the union has kept the peace.

+Dwight K. Schrute There is currently an on-going war in Ukraine - just last week two soldiers died and three civilians with them. Forgot about that one, huh? Then there was the Balkan episode.

+Unknown Soldier Remind me the when last war was waged on the continent of Europe?

There is no unity. The idea that an organization will pacify a continent which has never been at peace for the least 3000 years is a fantasy.

Brexit has been a big mess but I think still better than the EU situation. Europe had a tough 20th century and the 21st is looking bad too. The euro is still broken. There is a constant flood of people from africa and the middle east. The EU parliament doesn't work effectively - at least it doesn't engage with it's population effectively.

"This is propaganda targeting an American audience." Wow, it's almost like Prager is based in the U.S. or something... How informative of you.

No one in the UK uses the "big government" argument. That's always been an American conservative thing

"Fish don't respect national boundaries" looks like an insane rant made by a racist crab.

The realitea of breakfast

Wonderful video. I feel this has informed me to a much greater extent and is not holding either Brexit or Remain in high regard (you’re one yourself, but on educated terms)while Farage (though he is good at saying what people want him to with wit and succeeding) spewed out baseless claims.

"rage baby" also made me laugh XD

"British fish". . . red herring. . . tee hee hee

Wow, du bist so ein typischer Sozialdemokrat. Kapitalismus ist nicht reformierbar. Deine Kapitalismuskritik ist nichts wert, sofern sie keine materialistischen Basis hält. Du solltest vllt doch mal am Marxismus-Leninismus Seminar der KPD teilnehmen.

Imagine how much better the world would be if that plane crash was just a little worse

Thank you so much for this info

17:25 Well is there any argument that the reason member states misspend EU money is that it is looked on as 'EU money' not money directly from UK tax payers. (even though it is). The idea is that if the money spent by a particular state was more directly attributable to the tax payers of that state, maybe there would be a better accounting for that money.

Sadly though, a particularly vocal segment of the population will ignore all of this and just start screeching “But Immigrants!” until they’ve scared all the sane people out of the room.

Farage is unbothered about foreigners exercising undemocratic power over British citizens if those foreigners are capitalists.

Voted number one in a poll for Punchable Face magazine

I hate to paraphrase (god what's her name? - at least I have the bliss of forgetting about her... honestly my mind is a blank, but I can see her face and hear her annoying words... it's coming back... I had to google her in the end).... I hate to paraphrase Lauren Southern. But I think she is right when she suggests that conservatives only care about what is on this side of the hill. While those who are against conservatives will dare to dream what is on the other side of the hill. Brexit is not about the future.

Also, notice Iceland is NOT AN EU NATION.

How many deaths does it take before we get a communist utopia?

Stop not-being-communist you bigot!! True communism hasnt been tried yet!! We will make it work this time!! Just after another 15% of the EU population is dead!

You're gonna roast PragerU? I'm here to watch your video, gonna share it and praise that PragerU will die rather soon

3:40 big government does not only refer to administrative costs. it refers mostly to regulation. The EU is massively over regulated, with regulations coming not just from national bodies but from the EU government itself.

all the worst functioning governments are small.

Directed at an American audience? You are either completely bonkers and intentionally antagonistic. As far as no noticeable increase in bureaucracy, you've obviously never run a business and been subjected to endless expansion of H&S documentation. The domestic countries implement all the recommendations from EU because they are invariably tied to conditional grants. This is the second video ive watched of yours, and you follow the same repertoire - giving radical, yet nonetheless nonsensical alternative views to essentially simple topics. I feel sorry for your unsuspecting audience, who, judging by the comments in this echo chamber, lap up your drivel. Shame on you - you are worse than any right-winger or excitable cleric.

When you can figure out the why the how becomes so much easier. That's the EU's problem, it's a solution waiting for a problem... It's origins are indeed noble, to stop the great nation of Europe going to war with each other, by increasing the amount of interdependence one with the other. But mission creep like it tends to, has complicated what was at heart a simple proposition. The Nation state works!, no better way of keeping people peacefully together has yet been invented, play with this at your peril. To date, I see only two cities that are truly World cities (London and New York) These cities are unique, they exist for different reasons but no other places on the planet seem to painlessly (relatively speaking) have diverse people co-existing. Germany's desire to maintain it's population at all cost is the genesis of this breakup, ok that might be an oversimplification of the problem, there are indeed other factors, but there is no greater factor...

The EU has such a large capacity to be corrupt that it's no surprise that laws unpopular at the citizen level. I wonder how people in the U.S. would feel if the president were elected by the Senate, just as EU representatives get elected by representatives instead of citizens. You only have yourselves to blame, because you elected those representatives! As though representatives are puppets and not independent people that are capable of PR and lying until they get power. Much easier to get somebody elected than it is to get them out.

How did I never come across this channel? Great analysis and by his accent he seems to be german like me

I absolutely love your videos three arrows. I hope you live a long happy life and continue to bring joy to the hearts of all your viewers!!! I love you man

Hi three arrow, like your videos. What are your thoughts on the parallels drawn brexiteers with Switzerland? I'm Swiss btw : b

Please, someone stop us

Why did this biased, poorly researched garbage appear in my recommends?

Why did you feel the need to write a worthless poorly educated comment as if it had any vaule, and then like said comment? Do you suffer from insecurity problems?

Prager U is just another case in point of conservatards in general. They lie through their teeth, and somehow manage to get together and coordinate so they all tell the same lies. Not a one of them could tell the truth to save their lives.

It honestly baffles me why Socialists are so supportive of a corporatist EU that advocates for mass, unskilled migration which drives down the wages of the poorest in society. I can only assume it's because they recognize it's fundamentally undemocratic nature, enabling them to try and engage in an ideological takeover to impose socialism on the entirety of Europe and declare war on the US or some such nonsense.

+George Soros Intelligence Network Germany advocates for immigration. Then it either commands the EU to require all EU countries to take a percentage quota of those migrants, or it simply hands them all EU passports allowing them to live anywhere in the EU by EU law. The National Government of Hungary has decided to completely close it's boarder to migrants (and as you said... *"Immigration policy is up to national governments"* ) ...aaaand as a result, the EU is now trying to punish them and force them to allow immigration. Why would they punish them if they have no position on immigration? So please, don't bullshit a bullshitter now. The EU wants mass migration because Germany wants mass migration.

The EU doesn't advocate for immigration. Immigration policy is up to national governments and not decided by the EU.

Farage didn't bother to mention that originally the British membership in the EEC was supported by most of the conservatives including Margaret Thatcher whom PragerU probably loves. In the referendum held in 1975 it was the left wing of the labour party (like Tony Benn and Michael Foot) who were the most prominent anti-marketeers and in the right there was Enoch Powell who wasn't a member of the conservative party anymore at that point. Also it is quite ironic that in 1975 support for the EEC membership was highest in England and lowest in Scotland and Northern-Ireland when the situation in the 2016 referendum was the verry opposite.

I like how the caricature of a pompous dishonest EU bureaucrat looks like Nigel Farage.

It's so kind of funny and sad at same time how politics work. When enconomy is bad or some other issue, shift blame to something external. This literally happens over and over, simultaneously at multiple countries. Be it EU in this case, drugs, war or immigration. I'm not saying these are not issues, but it's mostly blown out of proportion and not the way to go if you want to fix the issues. It's actually in many cases just the opposite, instead of fixing the issue, what happens is they cut it away or attack it. Examples of issues above are good tools for politicians because it's external like I said, it's easier to blame something other than yourself. And it's relatively easy to make move on those issues in a way that people can see something being done. Instead, of for example some minor boring regulation changes and whatnot which has a lot less impact. This is also why more authoritarian leaders rise up at times, of difficulty and confusion. They present simple solution to complicated problem with firm conviction. People are attracted to that, no one likes being confused, admitting they don't know or seemingly nothing being done to fix the issue. Unless your citizens are highly educated and spend time to think about issues from all angles it's not hard to direct their attention to something you want. Even if people are educated, most people just take someone's word as truth or don't have time. All this is pretty natural reaction of we as people and politicians use it to get in power. When there things are not going as well, people spend less money, stock up and try to save by cutting "unnecessary" costs. What this translates to in practice, is that people buy stores clean, leaving no food in shelfs and many people don't get anything making the scarcity actually true. Same has happened many times with money, people predict some economic troubles or collapse of the bank and up making it worse or true by driving the banks under by withrawing all their money. Or they start using less money, which disturbs supply and demand chain increasing the prices and making it necessary for business to do employess cuts due to lesser sales.

Farage is a ghastly human.

Yes UK leave the EU. Make Germany even more powerful. And the ability to print your own currency would of lessened Greece's pain. And LIKE NAFTA here in the USA it has been the enemy of the working classes. So the people voted spoke and now their leaders are dragging their feet. Do the will of the people. Let the fucking chips fall where they will.

He didn't "work for it". All he did as a REP in the EU-Parliament was disturbing the peace, encouraging "lesser" UKIP Reps to flash Hitler salutes whenever German REPs have the word (doesn't matter his party is allied to the German Right Wing) and overall being nothing but a scumbag

Considering how the entire bargaining strategy of the British Government as well as the Parliament has been "The EU will eventually give in to all our demands despite of them not having to do that" throughout the last 2 1/2 years proves your point.

+Badger Mcblasty You realise this is on purpose right? They already know how to pull it off. This is by choice.

DeoMachina enlighten me on “the ways to leave the Eu without facing economic collapse, indeed, write to the members of the Brit parliament and enlighten them

+Badger Mcblasty I don't need to explicitly deny something to question your logic. There are plenty of ways to leave the EU without facing economic death. The UK government considers every single one unacceptable. The UK government is also being held to ransom by a half-dozen religious extremists whose political support is now priceless, thanks to the hubris and incompetence of those in charge.

DeoMachina you don’t deny the Eu is punishing England. So0o I don’t really see your point. The rules are mafia like. “Once your in, there’s no way out except economic death”. Seems fair, why wouldn’t you want to be part of the Eu

Why would you blame the EU and not the UK government for this? The EU has a set of rules, which the UK all knew well in advance...and the UK government has no plan of action to deal with it. The UK position for the past two years has been "Okay, so those rules we all agreed on before..forget about them. Just let us break your laws."

And plenty of racists voted for Remain. Moot point.

Never, most likely.

+Jesse Johan three hundred and seven years after the act of union in 1707 almost half of Scotland still voted to leave the UK. 200 years after tibet was annexed by the qing empire, in 1911, tibet declared independence and lasted 38 years until mao zaedong forcibly invaded them, and to this day theybstill have a large free tibet movement. Belarus has never had a meaningful independent existence, always being owned by great powers like Poland Lithuania or Russia. Yet when the USSR broke up, they did not stay with Russia, they declared independence. You'll simply never kill nationalism, as it is not natural to oppose the sovereignty and existence of your own people. The EU will eventually end, whether it be destroyed through democracy as with Czechoslovakia, through ethnic warfare as with Yugoslavia, or through invasion, but it will not survive.

+Genghis Khan In time, yes. It's illogical to assume that future generations would hold the same grudges as our forefathers did. Nearly every nation has been at war with one another if you look at conflicts of the past, yet the world is more at peace than ever.

It's also an equally if not even less intelligent idea as the unification of the South slavs, manifest in the country known as "yugoslavia" was. Do you think you're going to convince all the eastern Europeans to unite in some globohomo United States of Europe? Don't make me laugh, they don't even want to unite with eachother. Do you think you're going to convince Ireland to be in one country with Britain again? Fat chance. How do you intend on preventing big countries like Spain leaving, when they themselves have problems with places like Catalonia wanting to leave. The idea of a United States of Europe will never work.

No, it isn't. Europe unified with Russia, that is it's biggest fear.

+SmartPappnase "Not true, there are "diminishing returns" to more inhabitants " literally nothing in my statement denied diminishing returns. It's still a fact that German has more representatives than smaller countries can have. You are a great example of true color of leftist. I have been debating you guys for couple years now, and I saw more honesty in fundamental Christians and Muslims than in any leftist on this planet.

You made another blunder... You said, that the seats in the EU Parliament are proportional to the inhabitants of the member states. Not true, there are "diminishing returns" to more inhabitants (also to protect the smaller states, some of which wouldn't get a single representative, unless you made the parliament excessively large...). One vote from an inhabitant from Malta has about 12 times the effect, of that of a German. That is also one of the reasons, why the German supreme court does not consider the "European Parliament" to be an actual Parliament.

Comrade Nigel comes out against the tyranny of the nation state.

For me, the moving back and forth is the worst thing. Other than that, there are some smaller weird decisions that get the attention of Swedish news. It's usually solved by a local variety decision. (Produce special to any region, every country have them).

wtf i love german imperialism now????

Nice and good presented video and very informative. subscribed

I bet PragerU is made with Koch Brothers money

My first Three Arrows video. Definately not my last.

Nigel Farage talking about the elite who have never done a hard day's work in their lifes lmao.

Unbelievable that a rich kid who never tried for anything in his life and for 20 years lived from trading, although he did not have any qualifications and got into this job just by his dad's connection characterizes others as self important overpaid useless grads that have never worked.... Nigel you are a self important overpaid social engineer who has never done a proper days work in your life... but you have a useless high school degree... because you did not have to borrow money for tuition fees and study to get in the job market... your dad's connection did that for you...

3:40 - I actually think that idea would be awesome.

the important question is "is Brexit bad for Europe"? what would be the effects on the other countries?

I wish my country leave E.U.


I wish I could watch this whole video. This asshat is just pissing me off too much.

At least he's not on national news every other day like he was in the months running up to the Brexit vote.

Hey just found out that his channel name/icon is a reference to the german "Eiserne Front" (iron front), a antifacist and prodemocratic organisation founded 1931 in Germany. They fought for the consistency of the Weimarer Republic, the first democratic republic in Germany and fought of nazis in the streets.

Farage is a charlatan and Prager U a farce. But there is a bit problem with EU democracy (and lack thereof). Fundamentally, there is no European demos, at least not one that UK citizens feel part of. Add to that some of the questionable anti democratic decisions the EU has taken against democratically elected governments (in Greece a few years ago and more recently Italy), i think the charge of the EU being anti democratic does have weight. I voted remain and likely would do so again if given the option. But can definitely see the advantages of the UK being involved in a close economic relationship with the EU (ala Norway), and outside the political institutions.

if you remember that "elite" is usually a dogwhistle for jewish people that whole prageru video becomes even more suspicious.

So glad I found your channel man, you exposed to me the frauds that people like Peterson and Rubin are. Great content as always.

This is the best anti-Brexit argument I have come across and very informative. It still doesn't address the left-wing arguments however, which take a more nuanced position especially on why the EU as a whole is undemocratic. There is an article here which takes such a stance: Moreover, Yanis Varoufakis, who well understands the inherent difficulties in negotiating with "Europe", in a conversation with Noam Chomsky said that "The European Union doesn’t suffer or the Eurogroup from a democratic deficit. It’s like saying that we are on the moon and there is an oxygen deficit. There is no oxygen deficit on the moon. There is no oxygen, full stop. And this is official in Europe." I appreciate that Varoufakis actually believes that the EU can be reformed but fail to see why he's so confident given his own dismal experience.

I think a left wing anti Brexit argument has to figure more on the nature of Brexit than the EU, so it wouldn't really fit into this video.

nice fish joke

there is no such thing as a British fish, that implication is a 'red herring' - good pun

I love your videos. I think they're more of a college lecture than PregarU. I've your Hitler Socialist response video multiple times. A good study.

Why is Britain represented by a lion? That's like France being represented by a kangaroo.

Medieval heraldry people liked big cats. And even our republicans were still kind of royalist so we kept the imagery.

"I dont like faceless bureaucrats making laws for nations they don't even live in." A traitor to the empire, disgusting. THE SUN NEVER SETS

*ahem* article 13

did you finish the video? he literally talks about article 13 at the end

"Britain is not an empire anymore" B... But the tea!

City government, county government (or parish in Louisiana), state government, federal goverment.

I supported Brexit because I don't live there and I wanted to see what would happen ;)

Brilliant ... especially "Red Herring"

I find it funny how at 18:35 they didn't want to ignore Ireland alltogether, but painted it blue so it wouldn't stick out too much in the water, making the land border to the UK too obvious xD

About 18:35: No, the United Kingdom is not an Island. Great Britain is an island. The United Kingdom is a country with some of its territory on that island.

The Brexiteers are bastards - there is no other word for them. Bastards and liars.

USA should leave the EU

"Our country may be a wreck, but we owned the Libtards™

so up until the 3 minute mark your only arguments are semantics and strawmen.....i can't wait to see the rest of the video, no you can't say the EU is less big government because its administrative costs are low, its big government because it has no accountability and takes years for the will of the people to reach the top's ears

10:02 "I love democracy. I love the Republic!" - Emperor Palpatine

EU brohibited to grow poppy in others EU eastern countries and others stuff only them can I don't like dis

Good god, Nigel can barely breathe.

ill agree to disagree


Love your videos man, keep it up!

I’m so happy your videos are getting so many views

I hope the UK falls into violent chaos


Whether you feel one way or another, the vote to leave happened. If it's not honored, what's the point of adhering to democracy? Why should anyone ever respect votes they don't agree with going forward?

Nigel, what a joker

Scotland is done with this anti-intellectual, right wing circus. Hope Brexit was worth it, England. Because you can kiss your supposedly valued Union goodbye

You're screwed in the EU, screwed if you leave it.

Im on the left and I was 50/50 during the vote. in the end I voted for Brexit for the simple reasons that I can't see reform happening in this undemocratic institution. The EURO does not benefit Southern European but rather than seek to offer say two versions they just push more austerity. We also have Jean-Claude Juncker as President of the Commission who was named in the LUX leaks. David Cameron (who I did not even vote for) voted against him becoming President and failed. So we have a corrupt President who I did not vote for, nor my former Prime Minister who i did not vote for either. Article 13 again highlights the lack of democracy point, but just saying vote for MEP who oppose it is pointless. As, they do not make the laws and it will eventually be pushed through. Also, the calls for an elected President only came after the vote. I would support a proper Parliament with Veto Powers for national governments,

Logic: "I voted Tory and my MP didn't vote for PM. Conclusion: the system is undemocratic and I should reject it." Good lord, those British are really such a smart bunch.

Interesting also how he talks about the price of "fries" instead of "chips". There's another indication this is meant for an American audience.

I mean american english is used world wide more than british english so

How does PiS want to make EU better place? By deconstruction of the Poland's judicial system?

On March 29th comes into force an EU regulations against the tax evasion. UK billionaires would be hit very hard by that. There is your motivation to get out of EU. The date Theresa May triggered article 50 was no coincidence.

+mokkorista no idiot, youtube will have to censor its content so it cant get sued, just coz some dude did an ed sheeran cover

Agreed, news aggregators won't be able to take freely someone else's content.

Wie kann der Kapitalismus nicht reformiert werden?

+Dobromir Ivanov Article 13 has absolutely nothing to do with socialism. It is the brain child of some major Europen publishing houses. It is done as (big) business friendly legislation (even though I am firmly believing that the involved are misguided if they believe they are doing themselves any good)

+brinbrin62 62200 If Brexit is so good, how come that Le Pen has totally shifted away from here long held position to leave the EU, as a consequence of Brexit? Wasn't it supposed to be the other way round? I though your kind claimed that Brexit would boost the anti-EU movements and their ambitions to leave the EU?

+Squiddy Squidknacker You don't need to say anything else indeed. Capslock and the lack of any coherent argument pretty much says it all.

+Squim The Commission President is nominated by the European Council, ie all the heads of governments of the member states together (they do so by majority vote I believe). However, according to primary EU law, they are obliged to take the European Parliament elections "into consideration" while doing so. Enter the lead candidate procedure, that means, like in most parliamentary democracies, the different groups in Parliament campaign with a lead candidate they want to see in the office of Commission President. So while the European Council is not technically forced to nominate one of these lead candidates, they can only nominate. It is only the newly elected European Parliament which can actually "elect" the Commission President into office. If it refuses to elect the Council nominate the Council has to come up with someone else and if it is found to ignore the results of the EP elections, ie acts in violation to the treaties which would totally undermine its own position. This might sound messy and all but it really is no more messy than various national nominations of heads of governments in parliamentary democracies. The other Commissioners are then selected by national governments, wheres every government selects one Commissioners, any way it pleases. However, the elected Commission President has free reign to distribute competences and if member states nominate someone the elected Commission President doesn't like he will simply give that person one of the least powerful competences. Once the whole Commission is made up, every nominated Commissioner has to face a fairly in depth interview in the European Parliament, where questions can be very much in detail on the respective field and harsh. The European Parliament doesn't have the power to reject Commissioners individually but it can reject the Commission as a whole and it is also ready to doing so even if it feels strongly negatively only about a single Commissioner and the respective member state isn't ready to exchange that one or at least the competences are reshuffled to the pleasing of the European Parliament. If all of that works out and majority in Parliament also confirms the full Commission you have a new Commission in power. The story doesn't end there though. The European Parliament can fire the Commission as a whole anytime, for any reason, as long as a majority in Parliament votes it out of office. The story for the Council is much shorter: The European Council is made up by the heads of government of each member state. The Council of Ministers is made up by the respective national ministers (The Ecofin Council for example is made up by national finance ministers). Most things are decided by qualified majority voting, less integrated and more sensitive issues are voted on by unanimous voting. Those heads of governments and ministers are nominated or elected according to their respective national constitutions.

+Mkaltripplesix In other words poverty or barbarism.

+RageTyrannosaurus Ahm, that's communism. Socialism is more in between a system of transition between the two, but it's just as bad as communism and fascism.

+Dobromir Ivanov I was under the impression that socialism was things like worker cooperatives, basically all the workers are part owner of their workplace and have a say in how its run.

+RageTyrannosaurus Which kind? In general, if we talk without any specific and just take the concept on it's own, it's the idea that people are social burden on everyone and should be helped through the state.

+Dobromir Ivanov Alright, so how do you define socialism?

+RageTyrannosaurus I actually dislike the size of socialism. I am almost borderline anarchicist. Not there in any way, but I do not believe socialism is a good manner and I dislike the EU because it enforces and promotes a type of socialism onto other countries. It has an innate in itself and it's current system socialist idea of taking charge over countries. Yes, countries have a choice, but often when it comes to EU elections, specific people get the right the choose from a country, which allows them to dictate what happens in one's own country, even if the same people do not have the support within that said country. Many laws the EU makes are things that the majority of my countrimen are flatly against, but nonetheless, because there are a few elected officials from a country, and a singular that actually has a veto power, it passed even with minority support within my country. This serves to a certain extend as a bypass and even worse is that then it's almost impossible to reverse, since removal of the law would also require 100% support after that and no longer a single unit can veto it.

+Dobromir Ivanov You mentioned socialism and the economic system among your three reasons, are you saying that you are upset about the lack of socialism and what do you find errant about the economic system of the EU?

+SmartPappnase Youtube said that you replied to me. They really should change the system.

+Tespri I was not even talking to you, but to the Lefty, that made the Video... This should be pretty clear, unless you are a talking Point spewing bot...

If Brexit is so good, why does the pound keep DROPPING when the market thinks we are getting closer to leaving, but goes UP when it feels we are either getting a delay or staying in the EU? I'm not very good with economics or politics, but doesn't this mean that if the UK DOES leave then economically it will crash or at best go into a recession?

Very good video...

Thanks for the great video!

The German accent when pronouncing Strasbourg sounds like a call for another Franco-Prussian war :d

You might want to check how many days Nigel Farage ever turned up for work at the European Parliament too. It’s really not first hand experience on his part.

To be honest PragerU and Farage are kinda low hanging fruit

Some people are very good tricksters

Good video, I have a small comment to your reference to the small feudal city states though. Actually, this is a way more complex analogy than one might think at first glance. The reason why those small feudal states could survive that long (and partly also thrive) is because they were not alone at all, they were integrated into a much larger sort of feudal confederation which offered a framework for those small states to operate in, a common judicial realm and some common services like the "privatized" postal service by Thurn & Taxis. I am talking of the Holy Roman Empire. Today the scale of what constitutes a small state has shifted. I am confident to call most of todays European countries small. They are again in a larger overarching confederation. If you want to keep your small European state up and working and maybe even flourishing, you better like the idea of the European Union because it is the only way these small states can maintain at least a minimum of sovereignty over their destiny, if not alone that at least together with the other member states. Without the EU, they might very well either loose their independence altogether in the long run or end up as a vasall state to one of the large powers in the world.

a left wing propagandist talking about right wing propagandists. man, youtube sucks these days

"The French are never going to agree to that because it's in their economic interests. And it shows you..." That it's entirely possible to safeguard national interests within the structure of the EU?

Muh big gubberment

so you nigel farage prefers the common sense of a farmer rather than a politician to do politics? k i guess a writer can go ahead and do your surgery

Shit vid


Okay but that alternative title is 1000 times better, even better yet you could’ve titled it “Reality can be whatever I want it to be”

Why is this PragerU even worth talking about?

Thanks for this. As an American I know very little about the EU or how I would go about combatting the claims made by PragerU in this video like you have.

Love the varoufakis shoutout!

Nigel Farage's eyes reminds me the eyes of a dead fish.

19:30 and who says Germans are humourless?

+Cory Fice no

Were you ever subscribed in the first place?

Just a note from me here; it was mentioned that you believed that the EU was likely to collapse unless significant change overcame the EU. You then said that Brexit would make the EU worse for the average person. Is anyone able to explain this? If the EU is collapsing, wouldn't it be better to leave?

I'm not a socialist, more a liberal centre-ground voter, but boy do you make great videos. Rational arguments based on facts. The biggest problem with Brexit is a lot of the leave arguments have been based around simplistic soundbites. The reality of leaving the EU is far more complex, yet much harder to defend in the same way. It takes time, context and detail. And the failure here has absolutely been down to current politics in the UK. I don't think I've ever been so embarrassed (and concerned) by the British political system. This is not the country I grew up and spent most of my adult life in.

Wait... How's Iceland leaving the NATO scary for the Brits? I didn't get the explanation in the vid much...

Because if Iceland wasnt in Nato the Uk and US coudnt station troops, radar, etc on iceland or maintain a fleet from there. So in the cold war russian nuclear submarines could reach the atlantic undetected which would endager the entirety of nato. Because of their strategic position iceland could asked for anything

i totaly disagree with this video on a lighter note, you hear that two U.S presidents were in cahoots with the mafia, il give you a clue, J Edger Hoover and John Fitzgerald Kenndy, oh also a mob boss got wacked a few days ago

I remember seeing the Brexit vote in 2016 and thinking that it would be a domino effect of other nations voting to leave the European Union. Two-and-a-half years later, the exact opposite has happened. Between the utter failure of Brexit and the sheer ineptitude of populist governments in places like Italy, I think the case for the EU has been made even stronger than it was before, especially since the migrant crisis has largely dwindled over the last few years. Sorry Nigel, you had a window of opportunity and it just slammed shut on your stubby little fingers.

Of course, the day after the result came in, Farage buggered off, and within a week was giving speeches in Ireland urging us to follow our former colonial masters out of the EU; oh, and it's mostly thanks to the EU that we're no longer a vassal state of Britain. More recently, he's set up a new Eurosceptic party so he can keep sitting in the European Parliament. Farage is a charlatan who doesn't give a damn about the UK, he just wants to sit on the gravy train and pay for his ticket by complaining about the EU.

Scottish independence please. Hey brexiteers how about you push and we pull? You hate us anyway, we're a drain, we're traitors, stupid scrounging jocks etc... We'll both be far happier this way. :-)

Did you mention who appoints the members of the European Commission?

I just want a hard Brexit. Ie what we voted for in 2016. Ie what we had 30 years to decide on. I'd rather be kicked in the groin than be strangled constantly close to death. I'd rather be a poor master than a rich slave. That's just my view. You should debate pro Brexit people on YouTube. I want to see how you stand up.

+Mattuiop Remind me what cost thousands of working class jobs again Was it brexit? It was yeah

+DeoMachina *a market that benefits people outside of our country more than our own working class.

+Mattuiop You don't know what you're talking about. You advocate for leaving the market that was set up to benefit people inside the market most.

+DeoMachina exactly. Leave the customs union and common market. In the goal we have better control on free trade agreements. We'd still trade with the EU, but as an equal to the rest of the world. We're still growing as an economy and Brexit would help realise are potential.

+Mattuiop The vote was to leave the EU. You'd know that if you showed up to the ballot box.

+DeoMachina as I said, it's what I voted for, and possibly more people in similar vein. What did you vote for? And don't say "cos wacist colonial bigots and I want cheap holidays in Europe"

That's not what we voted for. You are lying.

The reason we left the eu is because of immigrants that it

I don't think anyone elese is going to leave the EU after this at least volentarly. Hungary might get kicked out though.

I'm a minute in and I had to stop for how hard I was laughing. "If one big government is bad, imagine having TWO BIG GOVERNMENTS!" BWHAHAHAHAHA. I can only imagine how far downhill this video is going to go.

The issue I have with the EU is that it is built on undemocratic structure. (I know the UK is also built on a similar undemocratic structure but I oppose that aswell). The European parliament can't propose legislation or repeal legislation. The problem is that the commission isn't accountable to the people. Ultimately the British prime minister campaigned in Europe for 5 years prior to the brexit vote for changes in the system. After the election his promise was "we will have a referendum on membership if I can't get any concessions". There were no concessions. Brexit happened. If the EU had been willing and able to give up power and accountability we wouldn't be in this situation. So I have no hope that they will reform in a positive manner in the future.

Ah, the anarcho-capitalists wailing against big government. Yes, let's just get rid of this messy government nonsense and run the world solely with corporations and billionaires. What could possibly go wrong?

I loved the "red herring" joke. Being in Australia, I missed the majority of Farage's arguments over the years. But it is becoming clear that Farage avoided, or just did not even think about, the really big issues that are continuing to fall out from a Brexit - perhaps the worst is that the Irish Troubles are about to start up again no matter what border solution gets implemented. In respect of the economics, from all I have seen, Britain joining the EU saved far more money than it cost, and it opened up UK manufacturers to the whole European market in new ways. Nevertheless I heard UK companies that were not happy that extra requirements were placed onto their products to meet EU requirements. But the unstated part of that complaint was that up to that point their products could only be sold in the UK (or other places that agreed to the UK requirements)... so their market was actually small by comparison. This seems to be the mentality of Farage as well. He wants all UK businesses to be able to create products to UK local regulations. And he makes it clear in that polemic that it is his idea that those local regulations are explicitly not going to match EU (or US) requirements after Brexit. But that also means they are unable to be sold on the continent. It is a very poor bit of thinking on Nigel's part, he really does not understand 21st century international trade. If he does, he certainly does not sound like it in that speech. The other point Farage avoids is that little will change for all those requirements he dislikes. If, for instance, a US business whats to sell it's products in the EU, those products must meet those same EU requirements. I worked for a US computer manufacturer, and all the computers that company sold were tested in the EU as they had to meet EU requirements. As the EU were the most strict for things like radio interference, that meant that the products met those of all other nations. Smaller nations have later responded by simply adopting EU requirements wherever possible. That sort of requirement set for export around the world will not suddenly change for UK manufacturers. They will still have to meet the needs of all their trading partner nations, and those needs are mostly conforming to the EU requirements. So a lot of what Farage said on that point is just ignorant. Or outright deceptive. Personally, I lean to the latter assessment of the man. The arguments I have heard for Brexit are weak at best. A few sounded like the hopeless wishes of people who still thought there was a British Empire. Britain leaving the EU is going to generate an avalanche of problems, and the long-term blame for those problems seem to me to sit as much on Cameron's head as the likes of UKIP - because he did not forcefully raise the sort of sensible contrary points raised in this video prior to the referendum. He too did not say "Irish Border"! Thank you for the good work.

Blames PragerU video for being leave propaganda whilst counter arguing the video with pro EU propaganda. Well done.

+MordredTheMightyMetalhead Im pretty sure trade will continue after the UK leaves even under a no deal under WTO terms which should be fine, but even then considering how the EU countries are fairing economically I believe it would be fair to say that the EU would be wise to agree to a trade agreement with the UK at some point in the future. Also im sure other cooperation would continue as it is in both sides best interest to do so.

​+Someguy​ Iceland is a part of the European Economic Area and the European Free Trade Association, but indeed it is not a part of the European Union and I think that it is better for Iceland to stay out of the EU because it is already doing very well and it is pretty self-sufficient especially when it comes to the energy sector. The UK is a different story though because it needs to be able to engage in trade with other European countries in the EU because if the UK leaves the EU then it will have much less diminished influence, less bargaining power, and less deceleration of it's industrial decline from when it was once an industrial international superpower when it came to industry and trade and exports... there are also other things to do with security and intelligence against terrorism, scientific innovation, diplomatic communication with other countries, etc... also if the UK leaves the EU then it will have to deal with things such as the high tariffs against it when trading with the US when it comes to industrial goods such as steel...

+DeoMachina no. for example he uses Iceland which is not in the EU to bash Britain and doesnt even bother to mention recent similar fishing disputes between Britain and France.

Facts, you mean facts right?

I finally found Klaus the Fish's YouTube Page! Oh, Klaus, will you never learn? lol

+Graknorke good god that sounds terrible. I've never heard of this guy before seeing this video. I'm so sorry.

If the Nazis didn't have shitty and morally reprehensible social policies and didn't go to war then it may have continued to recover economically fairly quickly under the National-Socialist economic policies of often liberal or Keynesian economists such as Hjalmar Schacht...

I love your videos. I think they're more of a college lecture than PregarU. I've watched your Hitler Socialist response video multiple times. A good study.

+Phil Bert By not sticking to the rules that apply to campaign spending and sources of funding, mostly. The Electoral Commission is very clear on this.

+DeoMachina how did they break the law? Did Britians have the freedom to choose to vote or not vote? If everyone had the equal unencumbered right to vote then what was illegal?

The leave campaign broke the law in order to win. If we let people cheat, why even pretend to be democratic?

+Sag Ichnicht Also Communism doens't work even in theory.

+Sag Ichnicht Brexit is equivalent to UK taking safe boat from sinking titanic.

+ripr65 That is too meta for me. And you calling me German is about as pointless as calling a Brit "you American". I really don't care if absolute sovereignty could exist in a perfect world, or in theory or in an utopia. In reality it can't. (I also don't care if Communism can't work in reality because it is fundamentally broken or because it can't work in an imperfect world, the end result in either case is it can't work in reality) Having the total freedom do make decisions is worth nothing if you lack the capability to achieve the change you aim for. That is why an EU member state can be more sovereign in side the EU than outside. This is especially true for smaller member states but also for the larger ones.

+ripr65 Well, Communism works, in theory, as well. One has to be absolutely delusional to think absolute sovereignty does exist in reality. Same goes for working Communism. Sovereignty in reality is of course relative. That means it consists on one side of the ability to make the decision and on the other side the ability to turn it into reality. If a country doesn't have the weight to do the latter, the ability to make any decision it wants is a rather empty one, wouldn't you say? That is why it is absolutely not splitting hairs when one says that it is far from clear that the UK will be more sovereign outside the EU than inside. By leaving the EU the UK has more freedom to make its own decisions but less power to turn them into reality. That is why the boat analogy is a pretty precise one. The lonely guy in the nutshell in the middle of the ocean enjoys absolute sovereignty. He can do whatever he wants. Well, he can at least try. PS: I am not German.

+ripr65 Brexit is the equivalent of the UK leaving the EU transatlantic cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, as Britain can only steer the big ship together with all the others. So Britannia makes use of the right to lower a byboat and voila is back in full control of its ship again. That is the reclaiming of sovereignty you are talking about. Now tell me, does the next stormy sea in the middle of the ocean also know that Britannia is now fully sovereign again as well? Your fallacy is based on the idea that something like absolute sovereignty exists, it does not. Sovereignty is relative as being able to make decisions is only half the story, the other half is having the clout to make them true.

+Sag Ichnicht I never said it does have anything in common.

1- You assume the government is a negative notion in the american mindset, unfortunatly its not. So thats already a false starting point ( I know I lived in the US for quite a few years). 2- They arn't "all big by american standards" because A) There is no american standard regarding government B) The US have governments of varying size (federal and national) . Conclusion : In the first 2 min of you'r video you have already basicaly said nothing truthful OR based on facts, and straight up lied to your viewers despite not knowing anything about the US general way of thinking (I'm guessing , going by your german accent and the lack of facts, you havn't lived in the US before let alone talked more then 2h about politics with a group of american people). 3- How does the administrative spending pourcentage of the EU have anything to do with national administrative spending? That 6% is MORE then what most countries can affort in terms of volume, btw , so how does that make the EU less of a government if it spends MORE in administrative costs AND if the administrative costs don't include : military , research funds ect... ? Which nations usualy include in administrative expenditures. 4- The EU isn't way smaller its actualy way bigger. Though it OFFICIALY has different functions then a state run government, truth is it has an EXACT REPLICA of a national government and hides its "extra functions" as fragments part of "sub categories" (take the EU bank for exemple, its independant , not part of EU administrative spendings , despite the board of directors actualy being part of the EU financial regulations comitee ). So unfortunatly the EU does have more functions then just administrative, it just hides it under different names . 5- No social spendings huh? Remember what I just said last line about "functions belonging to the EU but just under a different name" (always helps to make people not question a system when its complicated) . Well here is an exemple and its about social spendings . Corsica receives , along with many other regions, financial help for farm related business. Now you might argue its commercial not social but commerce is there to help society work , and Corsica doesn't produce a lot of cows, despite it receiving financial EU funds SPECIFICALY for cow related products (you can thank the guy who made the PAC and had a few friends in Corsica to take care of for that matter). So sorry but EU DOES have social spendings , including for migration for exemple ( view Asilum , Migrantion and Integration Funds (AMIF) for more info) . Conclusion part 2: 34 seconds past the first point and 3 lies without ANY proof ... great... almost feels like pigeons are making videos nowadays , or is it just a "talking out of your ass" syndrome going around? 6- The question isn't "is there more work for the national governments because of a centralized government AKA: the EU" . A) Not only is it TRUE that it is more work since you have to adapt your national system to EU regulations (which isn't always compatible or easy to do despite what you might think, just because the EU makes decisions, doesn't mean they are easily implimented in countries) so AGAIN your wrong but B) The question is about creating more bureaucracy with 2 governments which , despite all you can think or say , it does . More bureaucracy = more time wasted = slowing of changes despite a need for quick changes in certain countries = more work and complications = slowing down even more ect.... In case you havn't noticed (which you probably havn't) , appart from the legal EU system which is basicaly running itself independantly almost, the EU legislative and executive systems have been slow as hell in the past years (therein one of the reasons why Brexit is taking so long btw , its not just political issues, its also a question of having time to discuss it , which unfortunatly isn't the case) . It doesn't 3 years to find a deal with your neighbors does it ? Why do you think the EU is still discussing it? There you go. 7- The common market is a good exemple you gave , unfortunatly its the only thing that makes the EU worthwhile so its not really an exemple that has a lot of weight , especialy considering all the other stuff that increases national government work . 8- You'r comparing germany 70 years ago , to now , thinking the only solution is either a system of 70 years ago or the EU . You need to learn about imagination and problem-solving . Reality isn't black and white. 9- Why does it matter if Michael Farage leaves his party , and why (despite him saying he WAS the leader before and not now (in case you don't understand english)) do you point out the discriminatory attitude of a party he is no longer part of PRECISELY because of EMERGING issues ? Are you assuming UKIP was a discriminatory party despite not having either proof or knowledge about it ? Or are you saying Michael Farage is a good man for leaving a party that has changed into something heinous ? In both cases its not really a critisism is it and more of a personal biased opinion as a german citizen who profits from the EU staying the way it is ( its fun isn't it when people assume stuff without any proof right?) ? I'll stop here this video is a waste of time . Please don't listen to people who don't know their facts, it won't help you or anyone fix anything. Especialy when theres already 8 lies in 4 min and a half after video starts.

I live in a Brexiteer household, and am the only 'remoaner'. I watched pretty much all of my dreams collapse in 2016 and watched as my family have danced and cheered at it. Brexit gets brought up a lot, my family want 'no leave' and I'm reminded regularly that I am brainwashed to love the EU. I've also been told I am a traitor if I think we should have a second referendum--despite acknowledgements that there were 'lies on both sides'. I don't think I can quite articulate the despair and rage I feel now, and the isolation that brings.

These goddamn border-jumping fish, flooding into Europe unchecked!!!

"I'll be damned if I'm going to give up my rights so some Eurocrate is going to tell me how to live." Wasn't this the same thing that was said by Gandhi? And George Washington? Or just about everyone everywhere because there is no one on this planet who doesn't have someone else telling them how they have to live?

Don't think EU can still holding together in 10 15years though.

I think that so many off these arguments from the leave campaign is so completely amazing coming from from a guy who solutes a queen that can't be removed from office and has never worked a real job in here life. Also I would really like to hear what people in Scotland, northern Ireland, Whales, the Isle of Man, and Cornwall think about having "foreigners" come in to tell you how you have to run things. I would really like an analysis of every complaint that the leave campaign comes up with and how many countries and non white people have had that same complaint about the British!

prageru does not claim to be an university.

The U.S. is turning not into a henhouse where the foxes are in charge, but a henhouse designed by foxes - as David Cay Johnston put it so aptly. I hope the people of Britain can turn the ship around before it runs into the same troubled waters.

So, what do you think of Sargon of Akkad?

Oh, I thought you were Shaun and Jen. Guess I’ll watch...

I haven't seen anyone with a working crystal ball that can accurately predict the economic situation 2 years from now let alone 20... Anyone who says they can is a liar. Did nobody notice that much of the 20th century bore witness to nation after nation seeking it's independence from European masters. I'm certain that Gandhi was told time and again how much worse off India would be financially if it regained it's independence. In Wales, for as long as I have been alive, a sizable part of the population has wished to sever their administrative ties to Britain... Scotland also... heck, even Cornwall has an active movement trying to promote the idea that it should be an independent country. Given that there exists such a tendency towards seeking independence throughout Great Britain, why does the notion seem to be so alien to people? The desire for independence is not unusual, nor irrational... It is not born of spite or pettiness... or xenophobia... or stupidity. (However, the effort that went into framing it that way, certainly whipped up tensions here didn't it?) Usually it is born out of a sense of distrust for the ruling administration and of feeling confident in their own ability to thrive without outside interference... Often it is not a strong enough sentiment within a population to gain traction and bring about change... but as the 20th century showed us... it certainly is possible. I did not vote in the referendum... partly because it didn't matter much to me one way or the other... and partly because I have little faith in the democratic process. I was ready to accept whatever outcome came along. So should everyone else! The only reason there was a referendum in the first place was because successive governments had failed to silence the opposition that has existed since the very beginning of the EU project. As much as it had been framed as being a fringe position with no real support amongst the population, many elected representatives continued to voice the concerns of their constituents... much to the displeasure of 'both parties'. So, to prove that they were not truly representing the people and silence them for good, the people were asked to vote... It turned out that the people were in fact opposed to Britain's membership of the EU and those MPs who kept 'banging on about it' were in fact representing the people... Tony Benn, for example... For years! Stop trying to make out that people didn't know what the issue was and that they learned about it all from an advertisement on the side of a bus. The way that the remain people have acted since they lost... and indeed the response from the Government... has been sickening. Really. Truly appalled by the behavior of PM May... How dare she call for 'patriotic support' as if she suddenly believes that patriotism is a good thing..?! That's a sick joke on her part and I hope that one day her guilt bypass surgery fails and she feels the full weight of responsibility for what she's done. I've no idea what PragerU is and I haven't watched the video...

This is a fantastic channel. I’m American and I’ve never been to Europe but I’ve always had an obsession with European history but I don’t get much of modern European politics. The European politics I do hear the most of are from the U.K. because obviously we both speak English, but the U.K. seems to have a lot of the same far right crazy shit as here in the US. It’s really awesome getting to hear these deep fact based breakdowns of European politics from a German. Especially after listening to people attack Germany constantly. Really great channel. Keep up the awesome work.

DiEM25 Just planting seeds

Ya I'm gonna get my info from some dude who sounds like Hitler without the meth

How is Tommy Robinson racist? Or a fraudster? I always thought he came off as someone who's seriously worried and maybe even desperate.

+Harald von Hinten You mean besides assaulting Migrants in Europe, and calling all Muslims enemy combatants and existential threats? And Besides the mortgage fraud?

+DeoMachina Using a fake pass port to enter a foreign country is bad, I'll give you that. However i seriously doubt he is anywhere close to being a fascist. Have you got any sources for your claim that he wants to deport immigrants? So far all i see him doing is rant about radical Islam and the "fake-news-media"

Mate he LITERALLY called for the deportation of immigrants and he has been LITERALLY convicted of fraud He's a fascist thug

Something about his lower teeth creeps me out? They look too small and too densely-packed.

Wait, did he actually use a picture of the "elites" that looked exactly like him, while describing himself?

"If one big government is bad... " to kick off? Yeah, well what if it's not; what if it has decent people governing it, as opposed to a cabal of scummy hedge-fund managing parasites like Farage? Maybe that might undermine the whole premise.

Actually, maybe Farage is right. No government at all! "Do you hear the people sing?"

Honestly I despise the EU along with the UN I want them gone and I frankly don’t care what you think.


Listen to how his voice kicks up at 8:17 when he engages in a bit of self-portraiture.

To the US right wing "Big Government" refers to regulations that limit individuals, businesses or corporations ability to make money. They claim regulations are intrusive and decrease freedom for all citizens. The right claims that, without regulations, people will naturally refrain from purchasing dangerous products or working for bad employers forcing the businesses to change or be bankrupted. Any government or government agency that imposes restrictions or regulations is a threat to this radical laissez faire capitalism and thus is defined as "big" and aggressively undermined at every point. The idea of excessive bureaucracy and wasteful paper work is a secondary concern that is a result of the regulatory excesses of government or a reason why these obviously evil regulations continue to be allowed. Lazy civil service employees are making loads of money enforcing these regulations and will fight to keep their cushy jobs and unwarranted income even though they know full well it is a boondoggle!

3:25 You forgot county gov't. It works just fine Fritz.

Or, in case of cities, city governments and borough governments also.

What I don't understand is why they jumped from the vote to the decision. The tone of the vote that I understood going in wasn't "We leave, y/n?", it was _"should_ we leave, y/n?"

The way he says "I don't hate Europe, I like Europe" sounds just like some guy trying to cover an accusation of racism by going "I can't hate black people, some of my best friends are black!"

It is essentially the same. But when there's a critical situation, things can change rapidly. For instance, for years central Eurpean Neonazis stressed "international" (why is this even a thing?) cooperation with Ukrainian Neonazis. After Ukraine got fucked by Russia however and the other groups became aware of who funds them (Russia), they changed sides faster than Italy in war time. Would almost feel bad for those lonely Ukrainian fellows, were they not terrible persons to begin with. Yet - ousted by fellow cranks, lol

Ludacris :D

You are so great, we are so stupid, hahaha, fair play, we are as bad as the EU, the EU are as bad as us, but people who voted to leave are slightly worse at understanding how the EU is actually better for the UK, and the people who know the EU is better are slightly smarter. But the problem is this was the largest turn out in uk history, and it wasn't because the people of the UK think all large global governments are the only way to thrive. Russia? USA? China? Europe? Canada is about the only large global government where I would maybe agree. All the best.

God, Farage is really annoying to listen to. He's pretty much exactly what an ignorant rich guy sounds like in my head

Best way to destroy EU is from the inside. On the outside it just creates £ v €. Need the Germanic Eurozone destroyed.

UKIP's interesting. This party managed to scare the Tories so much Camaron felt it necessary to have a non-binding referendum (had to be non-binding to get through the house) to not lose votes to UKIP. UKIP dragged the Tories further right while becoming the BNP 2.0 themselve. Remember folks, Farage never managed to win a seat in a national election himself. He was an MEP, sat on the fisheries commission though rarely showed up to represent the UK (do his job) but still got paid and will still get his MEP pension. He's a C**t.

The EUs primary aim is to unite Europe as on nation. It will fail. How do we know? Because it's been tried before.

Brexit it will fail too but you still gladly eat up the slop those Leavers give you...

At least that gives me hope that someone chops the head of the Queen, because monarchy in GB has failed before. Wait...

well the last times it was tried was through war

look i say no dont like or need it so ? what now you going to do now force me ? answers in the tick box please

look its sargon of akkad with a lefty point hahaha

Three Arrows, You briefly touch on Scotland's position in the Brexit brouhaha, but what strikes me most about that, is that you can make all or virtually all arguments for Brexit almost without change for Scottish independence as well. However, all or virtually all non-Scottish British politicians who were in favour of Brexit in 2016 were against Scottish independence in 2014. Including Mr. Farage. This makes it very clear that there's a deep streak of imperialistic, jingoistic nationalism underlying the vote to leave the EU. This also indicates that a new vote on Brexit might not turn out to give a different result, as the reasons to remain in the EU are more dependent on a rational weighing of pros and cons whereas the reasons for leaving seem to be more emotional.

He didnt run the leaving the eu campaign either

Yeah, they should ban people from talking about their opinions.

Look at the comment under your comment and you'll see. You can't expect everyone to be informed and not fall for Prager Us bs, just because we are.

+trafo60 Why is that? Anyway, if you feel like using the internet is a prooof in itself is for that (which it totally isn't) at least try to make the best out of it instead of feeding your confirmation bias. But, and that's even better, go actually out in rl and get in toucb with people. I appreciate you acknowledging the problem, but it isn't unbeatable - you can do something about it. Good luck!

+Francesco Salvatore "for some amusement" yeah right. You're just as lonely and pathetic as I am. You think you're better than me but we're all in the same boat here buddy

+trafo60 Honestly, get a life. I usually look in the comments for some amusment, but this of yours is just pathetic.

+trafo60 Seems like you do.

+Francesco Salvatore ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ No big deal. Scottish independence please.

"It's Scotland's oil!" However, the English stole most of it already.¯\_(ツ)_/¯

+Sag Ichnicht " but regarding having the actual ability of implementing their own decisions. " That is literally what I meant with it. "Maybe Brexiteers haven't realized it in some sort of Empire 2.0 " First of all... I'm not from UK. Second, it's not about creating second british empire, but to leaving Corrupted system which is about to collapse on it's own weight. "not in the position anymore to implement a lot of things without allies. " Based on what. "Many multinational companies are nowadays so large, that the UK needs them more than they need the UK. " You clearly don't understand business. There is literally no reason at all for multinational company to sell products in UK just because they are not part of EU. "However, the EU has a lot more punching power and even the largest multinational companies can't afford loosing the entire Single Market. " My previous point applies here. You do realize that EU actually makes it less attractive to trade with any country that is part of EU? That is due regulations and tariffs that EU places on any country that tries to trade with EU. "That is why the EU has the ability of achieving things that the UK on its own can't. " Like what? Hong Kong achieves lot of things without being part of EU. So does Singapore, Norway, Switzerland, New Zealand, Australia, USA etc... I also love how you ignore article 11 and 13. Both disastrous laws made by EU.

+Tespri I am not using the term "sovereign" as in internationally reckognized as sovereign, but regarding having the actual ability of implementing their own decisions. Maybe Brexiteers haven't realized it in some sort of Empire 2.0 delusion but the UK on its own is not in the position anymore to implement a lot of things without allies. Many multinational companies are nowadays so large, that the UK needs them more than they need the UK. However, the EU has a lot more punching power and even the largest multinational companies can't afford loosing the entire Single Market. That is why the EU has the ability of achieving things that the UK on its own can't. So there you are with your sovereignty. In the EU member states have to agree on things but then they can make them true. PS: I am pretty sure you had no chance at all of deciding if May gets elected or not.

+Sag Ichnicht Look at their history, they all supported EU. " the real nature of sovereignty is already shown in bright light." This comment of yours makes no sense. Most of the countries on this planet are sovereign. Why is it better to be ruled by some bureocrats elected by Germans, than being ruled by your own people? Elections where you can at least influence on who gets inside and who doesn't.

+Tespri Yet, the house of commons acts as if it were the Titanic voting for the iceberg to get the hell out of the way. How come? Oh, the irony, how even prior to Brexit, the real nature of sovereignty is already shown in bright light.

Hey PragerU - your analysis of the Brexit video is brilliant - well informed and to the point. Anybody who does not realise that you are just stating facts against fiction obviously lives in a world of unicorns and 'pies to eat' without ever gaining weight or having to pay for it.

"Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." (Yoda, A long long time ago)

Brexit is what you get when you grossly overestimate your own importance in the modern world because of your empire complex.
